In a desperate attempt to use things in my fridge before they spoil, I came up with tonight’s dinner. My vegetable drawer was full of some random spares from making other meals and they were dangerously close to the start of spoiling.
I am unsure how it happens. Sometimes I just lose my brain and forget what I have in my fridge. Luckily, Mr. H saw the pork chops and reminded me to use them before they also went bad. I have been dying to have fried food. And I’ve also been craving roasted vegetables.
It all came together when I decided to coat my pork chops and roast the miscellaneous vegetables in the oven. Originally I wanted to grill them but didn’t feel like going outside. (A fairly lazy day for me!)
This ended up being a great chance to use up a flavored oil we received as a Christmas gift several years ago. It turned out decently with only a minimal addition to the flavor of the vegetables.
I accidentally cooked my first pork chop a little too long. Fortunately, the rest turned out well after my trial and error chop. This meal turned out well despite C not eating any of it. I give him props for at least trying the pork AND the vegetables. (He didn’t like either one, silly kid.)
