Dinner Date!

Time & time again I ask my boyfriend to cook dinner and he always answers with, “I can’t I don’t know how.” And I always say all you need to do is follow a recipe!! This weekend he surprised me with a dinner he made all by himself :). He told me I wasnt allowed in the kitchen when he was cooking, but I snuck in to capture it on camera. It was very cute & delicious may I add.

The menu:

  • Marinated Grill Chicken
  • Salad with Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Corn on the Cobb
  • Asparagus
  • Caprese Salad

There’s A First For Everything!

So my plan tonight was to make baked pork chops, scratch that I came home to no electricity because of the rain! Luckily, Maddie reminded me that we had a grand new grill waiting to be used outside 🙂 I was a little nervous, because to be honest I’ve never used a grill alone before but as I said, there’s a first for everything! Usually when I make a meat I always have a vegetable on the side. Well tonight were having two, because greens are good for you! Or at least that is what I was told when I was young.

Grilled Pork Chops with grilled asparagus & potatoes
What you will need:

  • 3 Pork Chops
  • 4 baking potatoes
  • 1 bunch of asparagus
  • vegetable oil
  • salt/pepper
  • Pork Seasoning
  • 2 garlic clove, minced

Servings: 3-4

Wash potatoes & cut in thin slices. Drizzle with oil & season with salt and pepper. (I also used potato seasoning)

Next wash asparagus , then cut an inch off the bottom. Drizzle with oil & garlic.

Heat the grill on high! Place two pieces of tin foil on the grill, one for asparagus and one for the potatoes. Let the asparagus cook on grill for 10 minutes and potatoes for 20 minutes. (Watch & toss both as needed)

After you remove the asparagus from grill, add the pork chops. Season pork with the pork seasoning & let cook for 5 minutes on each side. When the pork is done, remove from grill.

YUM, I will definitely be grilling again!
