Roast Pork with Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Carrots

I felt a little bit guilty yesterday writing about bad fried chicken purchased in a grocery store without writing about some of the Yes!Chef! made food that we have been having here at the Schmautz Haus.  Yes!Chef! loves the fall because he loves fall cooking.  He likes to make slow-cooked meats, home made gravies, fresh mashed potatoes, slow roasted veggies…I could go on.

I might have mentioned that it was my birthday a couple of weeks ago. And, in celebration, Yes!Chef! made dinner for the fam.  He suggested an upscaled Kentucky Fried Chicken type of recipe, which I thought might be mighty tasty.  I’m pretty sure most people have eaten at Kentucky Fried Chicken at some point in their life.  My daughter tells me that in Mozambique, the Kentucky Fried Chicken Restaurant is where everyone hangs out.  She also tells me that they eat a lot of chicken in Mozambique, along with fruits, vegetables and rice.

The Return of Yes!Chef! and his Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes

Meatloaf with Mashed Potatoes and Gravy and buttered Green Beans

I don’t think I mentioned that Yes!Chef! got called to the East Coast to help out some of the victims of Hurricane Sandy.  Not with his cooking skill, but doing his day job as an insurance adjuster.  He was gone three weeks and we were sad to miss him on Thanksgiving…especially his cooking.

Luckily, he was still at home for his birthday, so the kids and I decided to make him dinner.  (It is so sad that it took at least 5 of us to do what he does with just one of him.)  Oldest son’s girlfriend made a lovely German Chocolate cake, which is Yes!Chef!’s favorite.
