Stuffed Pork Chops, sautéed Zucchini and side salad
Its been a while since I blogged, I have a few meals in the camera that MIGHT make it online,
cause they were great. One meal was Beef Stroganoff.
But that's another post!
I went to Target to figure out what to make for dinner. This is probably my favorite way to cook...
to go see what is fresh, good and available, and create a meal around that. Sometimes this is dangerous
since I dont have the luxury of knowing if I still have all needed ingredients at home
or what I need to buy. Thus, sometimes I buy
things that I have at home. I dont sweat it, I know I'll use it eventually.
I headed toward the meat and was thinking chicken or pork.
They had some thick cut pork chops, so I thought I would do stuffed pork chops.
We are trying to eat better, so I thought that I could stuff them with apples, pears, walnuts, bread crumbs
and parsley. I cooked this all up with some sugar and butter, and let it cool.
I cut a pocket into the thick chop, and even had enough space to slice the other side of the pork chop
so BOTH sides had stuffing. I stuffed the fruit mixture into the pockets and
threw it in the oven.
I sautéed some zucchini, and put together a simple side salad.
I alternated broiling and baking the chops to attempt to make to crust just the
right amount of charred, but not burnt. I also wanted a little crust on
I think I succeeded as we all left the table with smiles on
The flock was "stuffed"! Ha!
