What’s for Dinner Wednesday: Pork Chop with Asparagus

I try every week to add a new meal to our menu. I attempt to follow the food guru and 30 minute meal making queen, Rachael Ray. The best part of my quest is I use items that I bought on sale so these meals are yummy and affordable… and oh, yes they can be completed in 30 minutes or less!

I then placed in the asparagus and I added some lemon pepper and lemon juice. I cooked the asparagus until they were soft.

In another pan I placed my pork chop in a pan coated with olive oil. I then cooked the pork until it reached 170 degrees.  I added a bit of salt and pepper.
