I bet you thought you got rid of me, right?
If you’ve been wondering where I have disappeared to, I have been busy adjusting to married life. When I began my blog nearly 3 years ago, I was in a different place. My boyfriend (now husband) was away and I had a lot of time on my hands. I started my blog as a way to become a better cook and to take a crack at this blogging thing.
Now three years later I’m happily married and with a new lifestyle. My husband has returned so I get to spend every morning, evening, and night with him. I get to support him as he transitions to his new life, and I get to begin pursuing other passions in mine.
While I love my little blog, I had been missing taking part in other passions. Crafting. Painting. Reading. I desperately missed those other parts of my life and wanted to get back into them. This only began when I was at an art gallery and met an artist who really inspired me to get back into painting. It was because of her that I began to get back into the things that had always made me happy. I enjoy reading so I’ve been picking up more books. I like to craft so I’ve begun cross stitching. I’ve begun painting.
Since these things do form a part of my life, I hope to share these with you on my blog. Food will always hold the focus, but I’d love to show you what all I do when I’m not food blogging! Hopefully you can join in too and share your other passions with me!
In taking some time off, I realized that I want to change my blog focus and put food on here that I actually eat day in and day out. Don’t get me wrong, all the food on my blog is amazing and I love to eat it all. But it’s not always how I cook. I cook simply. I love food but don’t want to spend forever in the kitchen. Therefore, it is my goal going forward to share recipes with you that truly do reflect my lifestyle, and hopefully they can find a place in yours as well.
Well, since we have that reflection out of the way, let’s get back to the star of this show- Pork Chops with Mushroom Gravy.
This is a recipe I had found online, tried, adapted slightly, and LOVED. These are the meals that I like to cook: simple, without a ton of ingredients, takes advantage of store bought items, and is amazingly delicious.
The pork chops are browned and then simmered in cream of mushroom soup jacked up with fresh mushrooms and onions. The pork is moist and the gravy is creamy, full of great flavor, and the perfect accompaniment to potatoes. This dish is great for the fall and winter, for guests or just yourself!
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
- 8 thin sliced, boneless pork chops
- ½ tsp garlic salt
- ½ tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tbs unsalted butter
- 1 small yellow onion, diced
- ½ lb fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced (I like baby bellas)
- 1 (10.5oz) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- Fresh chopped parsley, to garnish
- Bring a large skillet to medium heat. Pat pork chops dry with a paper towel. Season both sides of pork chops with garlic salt and black pepper.
- Place butter in the skillet and allow to melt. Once melted, lay pork chops in the bottom of the pan in a single layer. Cook each pork chop until browned on each side.
- Add onions and mushrooms to the skillet. Saute mixture until onions are softened and mushrooms have begun to shrink, about 3 to 4 minutes. Pour soup over the pork chops and mix gently until combined. Cover, reduce heat to low, and allow the pork chops to simmer 15 minutes. Garnish with parsley and serve.
Time saving tip: If you can, buy mushrooms presliced at your grocery store. They are already prepared for you!
