Hello, friends! Another week of “Simple Recipes for the School Year” is now in session. I’ve been looking through my recipes, and I’m trying to compile a good list of recipes to get us started as the school year begins. I’ve shared 2 with you so far (if you missed them, check out the last 2 Tasty Tuesdays). My goal when the school year starts: simple, easy, no-fuss recipes that get everyone fed in a timely manner. Once I post all these School Year recipes, I would encourage you to do 2 things:
1) Print them out
2) Put them on a bi-weekly rotation.
That way, for the next few months, you’ll be set. No thinking. No agonizing. No slaving over a hot stove while your kids run amuck throughout the neighborhood.
That is the School Year Menu Mantra.
So I have another great recipe for you today. It is one of those sinfully simple recipes that makes you feel a little sheepish once you’ve finished reading it. When I come across these recipes I hit my palm to my forehead and think, “Seriously? Why didn’t I think of that?” Why do we make it harder for ourselves, when the simple answer is ALWAYS the better answer?
My mom made this often when I was little. It makes your house stink a little bit – and if your children are a bit skittish around sauerkraut, it may not be for you. Although, I would say that the flavor of the meat is still wonderful, even if they pass on the kraut.
- 4-6 Center Cut Pork Chops, trimmed of fat (I use boneless, but bone-in is fine)
- 1 large can of Sauerkraut
There you have it! That’s 3 recipes to start you on your Recipe Rotation. That’s more than halfway through one week. We can do this!
Have a great week – especially for those of you who have already begun the school year, or will be starting next week!
