Two posts in one week? Weird.

So, even though I have had a lot less time to myself this week, I somehow find myself blogging twice! In one week! This might be a record.

Anyway, I like how dinner is turning out, so I though it would be good to share!

I combined a bunch of recipes to make my own tonight- yummy!

“Asian-style chops and rice-stuff”

For chops, you will need:

  • 1 1/2-2 lbs of bone-in pork chops (depending on how many you are feeding)
  • 4 tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. corn starch
  • olive oil

1. Put soy sauce, ginger, garlic, sugar and corn starch in ziploc bag; shake.

2. Put pork chops in bag; seal; shake.

3. Marinade for 30 mins.-1 hour.

4. Sear pork chops on both sides.

5. Mine weren’t quite done yet, so I popped them in the oven at 325 for about 20 minutes (cook time will vary depending on cut  of chop-mine were fairly thick)

While this is all happening…rice-y stuff!

For rice stuff, you will need:

  • 2 4oz. cans of mushrooms
  • 1/2 bag of spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups of chicken broth
  • some soy sauce (a splash or two)
  • some agave (a splash)
  • some balsamic vinegar (a splash)
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 3 cups of brown rice, cooked

1. In a saucepan, combine everything EXCEPT rice.

2. Bring to boil.

3. Once boiled (and spinach wilted), add brown rice; simmer.

To serve: I used my pasta bowls, putting down a 1 cup of rice-y mixture and 1 pork chop on top. Yum!!


In other news, cannot wait to see Spring Awakening tomorrow. Heading to a local show with my sorority sister and her biological sister. Should be a blast!!

Also- exactly 5 weeks to J comes home!!! We’re getting close!
