Sunday Supper…

My fridge/freezer/pantry needed a serious clean out. What better way to make use of those groceries than for a come one, come all Sunday Supper!!
Sunday Supper has been a tradition in my family since long before I came along.

Back in the day when my family seat was in the Upstate of SC, my Great-Grandmother (who I was blessed to have until I was 10 years old) had one rule.  Weekly. Sunday. Supper.  Attendance was mandatory-no exceptions.  Those dinners were amazing…everyone in the family took turns hosting and everyone contributed.  The menu was always southern traditional-comfort food, good for the soul but NOT the waste-line.

I digress…looking in my freezer there were pork-chops ready to go…and I had a ton of veggies.  A quick look on my favorite recipe site Food52.com provided me with a pork-chop marinade.  YUM, and easy!

Easy Pork-Chops

~Defrost and pat pork-chops dry.
~Salt and Pepper both sides to taste.
~Add one tablespoon of olive oil to a medium hot pan, wait until oil ripples in pan.
~Brown pork-chops on both sides for 4 minutes each.
~Add one half of a thinly sliced onion (or shallot) to the pan.
~Add 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the pan and cover for 15 minutes.
~ Remove top and cook for 5 more minutes or until cooked through.

Veggie Salad

**This is a total no-brainer.  I took all the veggies out of my crisper&pantry and put them in a big bowl.  In this case the ingredients were:

~Hearts of Romaine
~Heart of palm
~Artichoke hearts (in water) quatered
~Cherry tomatoes
Toss with your favorite dressing, and serve!  My go-to dressings are always Hidden Valley Zesty Italian (I throw a packet dry of this seasoning in my homemade pimento cheese) and Ken’s Steakhouse Greek dressing.  Delish!

Done Dinner

XOXO,  Catherine
