We had our usual cubed, roasted sweet potatoes with garlic powder and black pepper.
We had GORGEOUS local pork chops that Chris rubbed with pepper and a BBQ rub:
We seared the chops and then roasted them slowly in the oven.
We cooked the Brussels sprouts low and slow in our cast iron with a little butter and soy sauce.
Simple prep for an apple chutney - cut up an apple, 1/4 onion, added lemon juice, cider vinegar, mustard seeds, red pepper and a little brown sugar (added raisins when it was close to done cooking) and sautéed it all up while the chops cooked:
Once again, an unplanned/no recipe dinner that we made with the lovely seasonal food we stock our house with - very little effort and very inexpensive!
Also came together nicely. It was delicious! We remarked that this is why we rarely go out to eat, because our food is delicious, satisfying and affordable :)
I also like very much how our bargain shopping leads us to buy seasonal foods (ie. less fresh tomatoes or berries and more apples and squashes are in our grocery cart!). I really notice the special tastes of each season this way - this year more than ever as we try to stick to our budget!
Hope you all have a beautiful day, it will be raining here but WARM, so I'll be walk in the parking garage today, haha :)
