Pork chops, ground beef, and chicken thighs are three items from the meat department on my grocery list every week. The reason for this is simply because there are so many different meals you can make with these ingredients. Most importantly, these proteins are the basis for meals which are easy to plan ahead of time.
You have to understand the way my schedule works. I grocery shop for the whole week after church on Sunday. Going to the store any other day of the week just doesn’t make sense with our family’s schedule. With me working a full-time weekday job and my husband working nights and weekends, we take advantage of whatever time we can to enjoy life together as a family. Meals are an important part of this together time.
In order to accomplish this together time, I plan meals which won’t keep me in the kitchen when I could be spending time with my family. My go-to recipes have always been ones which are easy to plan ahead and quick to execute.
Everyone in the family enjoys this ranch pork chop recipe because it includes that magic ingredient “Ranch dressing mix.” You can’t go wrong with ranch in our house!
I like it because it can be prepared ahead of time and freezes well. The extra added bonus is this pork chop recipe is gluten free, dairy free, and egg free.
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 am a keep it simple cook. I love fresh veggies and meat. I have so little time to cook so it has to be fast and healthy. I grabbed my grill pan and coated it in olive oil. 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.
