FFWD: Chard-Stuffed Pork Loin ~ Spiced Squash, Fennel, and Pear Soup ~ Matafan

 We have missed a lot of FFWD and are now trying to catch up. This week we made three recipes for the same meal. We liked them all! The Matafan (Fluffy Mashed Potato Pancakes) recipe was one of the most involved I've made from AMFT. For such a homey recipe, it sure took a lot of effort. The Spiced Squash, Fennel, and Pear Soup had a lot of ingredients which all melded together deliciously...I think you could leave out the fennel and pear and get pretty much the same flavor, however, it was fun to use this odd combination and it is very healthy made to the letter. I liked but did not love the Chard-Stuffed Pork Loin. My husband and son felt differently - they were crazy about it! It looked great and was very easy to make.


  1. That's quite a round up!
    The pancakes were definitely quite involved as written in the recipe.

  2. Great multi-recipe post! It sounds like a great meal - all those flavors go really well together.

  3. You have been very busy, but that's fun sometimes to get the recipes
    all together. These worked well and were delicious. Your pork looks great
    as do the matafan pancakes. Great job and lovely photos.
