Tiramisu for the weekend!
Pork chops with brandied cherries (actually I ran out of brandy so used rum).
I’m not sure what call these — apple slices? — but they were so easy to make that I got it done before 8 this morning.

Tonight I prepared rougaille, a Mauritian stew/sauce, which I served with sauteed chicken.

Tonight I made a peach and blueberry batter pudding. It was great.
The original recipe calls for apricots and blackcurrants, but we have a lot of wonderful peaches and blueberries right now, so …
