I am going to go ahead and assume no one (besides perhaps my mother) knows where the title of this blog came from tonight. You can guess, but since you won't get it right I will just tell you-- Brady Bunch of course! .......Still nothing? Well, never mind then.
Okay, tonight I made EASY cheesy potatoes and pork chops. After cooking the chops in oil, you literally mix up everything else and shove it in the oven and 45 minutes later, the husband rated this meal an 8 out of 10. It usually requires some type of bread going along with the meal for him to rate anything that high. But, no bread and still, a success! This recipe will go into the rotation for sure.
I sautéed these in oil and some minced garlic and a few bay leaves.
Don't let them cook all the way through, they still have to sit an an oven for 45 minutes...
Mix all ingredients in pan, arrange chops on top, and at some point I guess I should mention there is no applesauce involved in the recipe at all...just in case..
and 45 minutes later...
The recipe I am putting below yields 4 healthy servings. Perfect for two, husband will have this for lunch tomorrow. Here are a few more pictures of our little apartment.
Halloween Candy Bowl, yes I filled it up. Yes I have eaten half of it. Don't judge me.
New sheets, duvet and comforter...ahhhh!
Below is the husband, being manly and wielding power tools. Funny story: during this he received a phone call from the college where went to undergrad school. The caller wanted to update his contact info and talk to him about financially contributing to the school. The husband, being in a funny mood, went on to tell the poor caller (who I am sure was just a student) that he already financially contributed to his school via tuition and in fact was STILL paying it back. The young man then asked if he had any prayer requests he could pray for him and husband looked at me, where I was laying on the bed, glass of wine in hand and told the caller he was recently married to an alcoholic and needed prayer for that. The poor guy was sputtering and stuttering and husband was laughing hysterically. Now we are going to get AA literature in the mail courtesy of his school I am sure.
