Grillin & Chillin? I Wish…
Labor Day is upon us. That still means Moms work, right? I mean, I don’t even know what a day of rest feels like anymore. Going on 5 years (I’m including pregnancy, because that struggle is real). I have been in the kitchen non-stop recently, feeding anywhere from 5 of us to 9 of us. To say I’m exhausted, is an understatement.
The sore throat is coming on strong, and that comes from either the first few days of a new Whole30, which I didn’t get this time, or pure, unfiltered, uninterrupted exhaustion. That is when I know a major nap is in order. It’s hard for a Mom to nap, you feel like you need to soak up those few times that are rarely quiet, and maybe get something done, or play Candy Crush. Today, I say NAY! I will take a nap!
In the exhaustion, though, there was a little glimmer of goodness. This recipe! It blossomed in a busy time, what do we have left in the fridge/kitchen, that I can feed everyone today without exerting so much of the one ounce of energy I have left. My tiger blood is not here yet folks. I’m just waiting!
So I tossed in a few ingredients with the pork chops into a zip lock bag, let it hang out in the fridge while I prepped the only two veggies left in the house, and called it good. When we sat down to dinner, everyone, including my “this is Whole30, it’s diet food” Dad, loved it! In fact, he ate it the next day, chopped up on top of a baked potato! So since I made this for a large group, you are sure to have leftovers, and that is the best news ever on a whole30, amiright??
So since you only have a few more beautiful weekends to get out there on the grill, do it, and take this recipe with you! You won’t be disappointed dears.
