Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Peas

SP is still sick with a serious head cold and I was going a bit stir-crazy after sitting home with him all day yesterday, so I decided to run out to the wholesale club this morning. We've been out of shampoo for a week at least, not to mention our freezer was looking a little bare. I stocked up on pork chops, ground beef, chicken breasts and frozen tilapia. It's great to see the freezer full of meat and fish again - I'm really looking forward to all the meals I'm going to cook in the coming weeks.

After doing all the cleaning, shopping and taking care of a sick husband all weekend, I wanted some comfort food. A family favorite are pork chops pounded thin and coated in egg and then bread crumbs mixed with Pecorino cheese. I served them with mashed potatoes cooked with garlic and frozen peas:


It was a hearty, satisfying meal. Poor SP couldn't taste a thing, but he cleaned his plate nonetheless. A good start to what's shaping up to be a good week of cooking. I love when I've got a full freezer. One of these days we'll actually get the coffin freezer for the garage and then I'll really stock up at the wholesale club. I can only imagine how crazy that bill will be!
Pin It!

  1. I'm sorry to hear SP is not feeling well. I also love the feeling of a full freezer/pantry/fridge and knowing there is so much you have that you can use to cook with! Much better than knowing you've only got 1/3 bag of frozen veggies in the freezer and a chunk of cheese! :P

  3. Eh, my first message never went through. I was commiserating for SP and passing along Amber's advice to eat Thai soup. Says it'll knock whatever ails ya out.

  5. Katie - SP is doing better, thanks! And yes, a full pantry/freezer is great. One of these days I'll do that fridge/freezer photo thing!

    her-mrs - THANKS!! And thanks for the soup idea. We love Thai food, so next time he's sick we'll give that a try.
