I wanted to write this one down quickly because tonight’s dinner was borderline one of the best meals I’ve ever made. So here goes:
Fig and Goat Cheese Salad
There’s probably a better way to do this, but I just spotted figs at Trader Joe’s today, grabbed some goat cheese, and otherwise just used ingredients already in my kitchen, so hopefully over the next week or so I’ll update this recipe.
1. Wash spinach.
2. Slice the figs in halves (or even quarters).
3. Pour fig quarters and sprinkle goat cheese over spinach.
4. Top with raspberry vinaigrette.
Yeah, I’ll keep thinking about that one. But the real masterpiece was this epic, juicy pork chop recipe.
Epic, Juicy Pork Chops
1. Coat the pork chops in vinegar, and then olive oil.
2. Season with garlic powder, onion powder, and adobo seasoning.
3. Leave to go to Trader Joe’s and pick up the rest of the ingredients as well as some more groceries (i.e. figs).
4. Catch up with an old friend, go to Starbucks, eat a sandwich, try the free samples at TJ’s (mmm sangria!), wait in line, bond with another mom, give someone else the evil eye for touching your baby’s foot without your permission, check out…
5. Come back 2-3 (maybe 4?) hours later, and add cumin, thyme, salt and pepper.
6. Try to cook quinoa as a side dish. Burn it. Give up.
7. Put oil on a saucepan, and read “How Much I Love You” to your baby.
8. Cook pork chops in saucepan for, I dunno, maybe 10 minutes per side? Take it off when it looks cooked.
9. Bite into the most amazing juicy pork chop you’ve ever tasted.
Sorry that my recipe doesn’t include any measurements. It’s just as much as you want; I have no idea how much I used.
