San Francisco Chops

My mom first introduced me to this recipe when I was growing up.  It is really very good.  She would serve her version with egg noodles, I actually prefer this version, but you can use rice as well.

{San Francisco Chops}
 Serves 4
4 Pork Chops (1 1/2lbs)
1Tbsp Oil
1 Clove Garlic, minced
2 tsp Oil
4 Tbsp Soy Sauce
4 Tbsp Cooking Wine
2 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Crushed Red Pepper*
2 tsp Cornstarch
2 Tbsp Water

Trim fat off of chops
Heat oil in skillet
Brown chops on both sides then remove from pan (you are just browning at this point, not cooking through)
Add a bit more oil to pan, if needed
Saute garlic for 1 minute, being careful not to burn
In a small bowl combine oil, wine, soy sauce, brown sugar and red pepper, set aside
Return chops to skillet and pour sauce over.
Cover pan tightly with lid or foil
Simmer over Low heat until chops are tender & cooked through (you can add up to 2 Tbs water if  needed to keep sauce from cooking down too much)
Turn once during cooking.
Remove chops to platter, keeping sauce in pan
Dissolve cornstarch in 2 Tbs water and add to sauce, cook until thickened
Pour over chops & serve

I love serving these chops with egg noodles that have been tossed with a bit of butter and sauce, I did not have any noodles on hand the night we made this so I used rice.  I still prefer the noodles but rice is a great option as well.
*You can add more or less red pepper depending on your preference.

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

For Such a Time as This

This post is a sponsored post from Family Christian , all opinions are my own. You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the
