I don’t know about you guys, but I am looking forward to enjoying a beautiful fall weekend with my family. Especially after the dramatic week our country has experienced this week. (You know, the time change…What did you think I was talking about?) I hope we can all take a break from the crazy and take the weekend to unwind and get some perspective so we can all go back to being nice to each other. Last weekend the little lady and I were on our own while my husband was out of town, so we adventured out and about all over town all weekend. So many fun craft and gift shows going on now with the holidays coming up. We also had our first little mother-daughter lunch date, and it was splendid. I get a bit nervous going to restaurants with her, so it was a treat for me to be able to enjoy that with her. I’m ready to relax though after the earth-shattering week following the time change last Sunday. Who knew that one little hour could bring full-blown turmoil to such a tiny human?
The flavors of fall are in full force around here, and today’s recipe is no exception. These Apple Cider Glazed Pork Chops are packed with a punch of flavor that you’ll want to enjoy again and again. This glaze is really easy to make, and only takes about 30 minutes total until dinner is on the table. To save on time, I cook the pork chops in a grill pan while the glaze is reducing in a skillet. (Side note: I can’t say enough about how handy it is to have a cast iron grill pan. I use mine way more than I ever thought I would.) Once they’re both ready, just add the pork to the skillet with the glaze and you’re ready to eat. Perfect for weeknights. I’ve even made the glaze the day before so I could send it up North with Hubby while he was on a hunting trip. All he had to do was heat up the glaze while he grilled his pork chops, and he was a happy guy.
