What's 4 Dinner? - CONTEST!

Welcome to another week of FOOD!!! Check out Edie's post!

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 I will post pics and recipes!!!

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
