For the past few days I have been eating take out or a frozen Amy’s meal for dinner since going to the trouble to cook for 1 person seems silly to me, so I was super excited to actually cook dinner when Mort finally came home from yet another business trip. I’m all for meals that have few ingredients, don’t require a lot of prep, and have a lot of flavor. One of my recent favorites is a recipe I found online called Drunken Pork Chops. It only requires a few ingredients that I always have on hand mixed all together and poured over some pork and left to simmer. It makes a really yummy sauce that looks like brown gravy but really tastes almost like a sweet bbq sauce, so good and such a great use of one of my Dad’s home brewed beers. I choose to chop up some red skin potatoes to quickly mash because you don’t have to go to the trouble of peeling potatoes. Throw it together with a veggie on the side and you have a really yummy week night meal! The best part is you can just plop it on the stove and go do something else for a while.
Every so often there are things I come across that are fantastically wonderful. They either are completely delicious, somehow make my life easier, do something cool, or fix something. I love to get reviews from friends and other bloggers of things to try out because you seriously can never that a review on a website is 100% accurate. One of my most recent favorite things I have discovered is So Delicious’ Dairy Free Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl ice cream made from coconut milk.
The name seriously says it all. I had given up all hope on having ice cream this summer until my wonderful husband saw this and convinced me to try it. I had my doubts because I HATE coconut milk but I can’t tell the difference between this ice cream and another ice cream I have ever had. It has been my go to treat for the last couple of months and I still can’t get enough! I’m also so impressed by their website. Since having a daughter with a food allergy I have become very aware of the companies that really get the fact that people have different dietary restrictions. Right on their website they break down their products by different allergies so you can get a special treat no matter what you are looking for. This is HUGE!
