Pork Chop with Asparagus and Mash potatoes

I made the dinner the other night and it was pretty simple and delicious. I have been messing around lately with some fancier dinner ideas but I kept it pretty simple with this one. 

You can totally use thicker chops if you like, if you do just factor in a longer cook time.  

For this meal, I prepped my asparagus as normal lemon juice salt and pepper and before I plate it I’ll add some grated Parmesan for little extra umph.  

I cut the red potatoes into quarters boiled with some salted water, once they were soft enough for a fork to go through without too much pressure, I added a tablespoon of butter, salt and some Italian season [not too much I’d say about 1 teaspoon because it is strong].  

Before seasoning the pork I put a gracious amount of olive oil then I seasoned the pork with salt & pepper, thyme and garlic powder. When you use a dry ingredient like oregano, Italian seasoning, rosemary, or thyme a good rule of thumb is to put olive oil or a good cooking oil in order to not have the seasoning burn quickly. Keep the heat at medium/high temperature. 

It went over well with the husband so I will probably try it again but we aren’t huge pork eaters besides bacon so it will be a few months. 

Thanks for stopping by love, I’ll have my post about a bold red lip up tomorrow! ♥️

Ricotta Stuffed Salmon with Asparagus and Quinoa

Alright y'all, so I have been hearing about this new diet that is all the rave.  Now you guys know how I feel about diets, they aren't really my thing.  

But I don't mind finding recipes within a specific diet regime that works and taste delicious, especially if they are simple and easy to make.

Currently I have been hearing a ton of things about this "Ketogenic" diet, it is a low carb, appropriate protein, high fat diet that is beneficial for people with diabetes or a history of family diabetes, especially with me having gestational diabetes during pregnancy if we ever decide to have another one it is probably a great diet for me to be on.

I found this recipe via a pin, of course 😉 and  it was easy, delicious and sister in law approved. 😉
