Pork chops are a really versatile cut. I fry, bake, and grill pork chops all year. But, like anything, serving them the same way all the time doesn’t make anyone happy. Thankfully I found a new way to make them that both Mr. C and I love! Brown Sugar Dijon Pork Chops made my regular rotation. And I can cook them using every method!

The last couple of weeks have been really rough on my physically. I think the weather played a large part since it was in the 60’s one day then the 30’s the next and continued to roller-coaster that way. I’ve also had a flare of the CRPS which scares the heck out of me. And the worst part was that I felt so awful I didn’t want to cook and we ate take-out twice! I finally decided I needed to restock my freezer meals and I thought I’d share what I made with 10 Freezer Meals to Make This Weekend.

The weather here has been just insane lately. It’s been bouncing from very warm for the time of year, to seasonable, to incredibly rainy. This calls for some good old comfort food, in my opinion! When you can’t depend on Mother Nature you can definitely depend on Smothered Pork Steaks and Potatoes to make you feel good!

I can’t think of many dinners that are as easy to make as this one! Because it needs only three ingredients and very little prep work, this is one of my favorite “fancy” meals for days when I’m dreaming of having my very own personal chef. Gerard Butler (shirtless, of course) feeding me bonbons while I wait for dinner would be cool, too. If you like Caesar salad I guarantee you’ll love Caesar Pork Steaks!

I love tinkering with old recipes and turning into something my very own. I had an old (2003) recipe from Gourmet Magazine for a pork tenderloin salad so I adapted it, leaving the salad for the side and making a couple little tweaks. We had Pete and his family over for dinner and I made my Hawaiian Pork Tenderloin.

This is a delicious way to serve rack of pork and it is sure to impress your family and guests. This cut may also be labeled pork loin rib eye. Rack of pork is anatomically the same as a rack of lamb or beef prime rib roast. These cuts all come from the same part of the animals. But rack of pork is a far more economical roast and that’s why it’s perfect when you are entertaining.

The situation with the hot water heater cause a bit more chaos than I expected. Mr. C has been doing dishes by heating water in the coffee maker but I feel a bit guilty about cooking when things are the way they are.
