~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Hi everyone!!! I am so excited to be doing a foodie blog! First off, I am a mom to 5...3 that live with me, and 2 step kids that we get 50% of the time. My oldest is 12, then I have 2 11 year olds, a 7 year old and a 4 year old. My 4 year old is Autistic, which makes it extremely difficult to get a lot of household things done, but I try!!!
First off, I would like to give some tips I use to keep things from backing up in my house. When I make dinners, I always make sure to have enough for at least 2 lunches for me and my husband left over. I utilize a ton of containers so that we always have a good lunch the next day and aren't tempted to eat out.
Second, if I am making something with hamburger, like tacos or enchiladas, I will always make it when hamburger is cheap, and buy a few pounds and cook it all together. That way I can just heat it up for the next couple of meals and save time.
Third, if I make a platter of anything in a casserole dish, like lasagna, baked mac n cheese, or enchilada casserole, I will always make 2, and freeze one. It takes the same amount of work, and I get two meals out of it.
Ok, now that those little hints are out of the way, I have a great recipe I want to share! I share this recipe with everyone because it is so good, my kids actually begged for more!
2 lbs. pork loin chops
2 T. all purpose flour
1 T. olive oil
1 T. minced garlic
1/2 c. balsamic vinegar
1/2 c. chicken broth
Dust chops with flour. Heat olive oil in a large skillet on medium. Cook chops for 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove chops to a serving plate. Add garlic, vinegar, & broth to skillet & simmer for 6 minutes until sauce thickens slightly. Spoon over chops to serve.
Yummy, right? I served it wish a salad and sweet potato fries...but it really goes with anything!
I hope you guys like the recipe, and see ya next week....I will be making cupcakes with the kids...so I will post pics and recipes!!!
