These two recipes came from Pinterest, of course. They were delicious easy to make and paired well together. I went with the easy way out and added a bag of Bird's Eye Steam Fresh Green Beans

Honey Garlic Pork chops

    • 1/4  cup honey
    • 2 tbsp soy sauce
    • 4 pork loin chops, boneless
  1. Mix together ingredients for sauce; honey, soy sauce, and garlic.
  2. Let pork chops marinate in sauce. (I used thicker chops and only let them marinate for about 45 minutes. Next time I will let them sit longer because of their thickness. I didn't feel like they had quite enough flavor.)
  3. Cook the pork chops to temperature on a grill. (I used the George Foreman, cooked for about 8 minutes, and got great results!)

Roasted Mashed Potatoes
  • 12 to 15 Baby Red Potatoes
  • Garlic Salt
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil

  1. Bring a pot of water to boil.
  2. Add the potatoes and let them boil for around 30 minutes or until they are soft enough to pierce all the way through with a fork.
  3. Preheat oven to 450.
  4. Remove each potato and let them rest for about 5 minutes on a towel.
  5. Use another towel to gently press the potatoes to about 1/4 inch thickness.
  6. Drizzle olive oil over a shallow baking dish.
  7. Transfer the potato rounds to the dish.
  8. Drizzle with olive oil and garlic salt.
  9. Flip the potatoes and drizzle with oil and salt.
  10. Bake the potatoes for about 30 min or until nice and crispy.
