What are you having for dinner?



Last week we randomly saw pork chops on sale at Whole Foods. Since I tend to get in dinner ruts habits (chicken fish fish chicken), Preston threw them into the cart and said that we should have them with an apple chutney. Now, at this point, I have to tell you at that point my mind immediately thought of Schmidt and how he likes his chut-a-ney. I really hope you watch New Girl and know the exact scene I'm talking about - if you don't watch it, you should start. Now.

Long story short, I grabbed an apple but didn't think to look up any recipe so when we got home and I started to cook dinner I had to get a little creative. I ended up doing an apple date rosemary chutney and it was DELICIOUS and took little effort. Pork chops with chutney have since been added to our weekly dinner menu and I am loving it. I am terrible with recipes, but the chutney rent something like: Dice a large apple and sauté it with olive oil, garlic, salt and pepper for 10 minutes. Add a handful of chopped dates and a generous sprinkle of rosemary and sauté for another 5 minutes. Last step, and this is the trick, add about 1/4 cup of honey leave it on the stove for another minute or two before putting on top of your grilled pork chops and devouring. I served with a spinach goat cheese salad that was a great accompaniment. You will love it!
