A Simple Summer Supper-with only 12 ingredients!

Tonight's supper was simple to cook and simple to clean up after!  I was busy around the house and didn't even realize it was 5:45 until my stomach started to growl.  By 6:20, we were enjoying our supper and by 7:00, we were cleaned up.

Broiled Porkchops:
  1. butterfly cut porkchops
  2. light sprinkling of garlic salt
  3. Penzey's Bicentennial Rub
Broil or grill until fully cooked and browned on both sides.  Flip halfway through cooking.

Brown Rice: 
(I hesitate to call it "brown rice" because it's really long grain white rice, browned with crisco.  Not exactly health food, but oh so tasty.  You could make this recipe with brown rice, it would just take a lot longer).
    4. 2 tablespoons of Crisco
    5. long grain rice
    6. chicken broth

Melt the Crisco in a frying pan and add the rice.  Fry the rice until it becomes light brown.  Do not overcook!  Add chicken broth, cover, and simmer.  You will need to check the rice frequently and add more chicken broth until the rice is fully cooked.

Sauteed Zucchini and Patty Pan Squash

    7. sliced zucchini and patty pan squash (from the bucket)
    8. sliced onions(from the bucket)
    9.  Earth Balance spread
   10. generous coating of Penzey's Brady Street Cheese Sprinkle

Cherry Applesauce - I always have to have applesauce with my porkchops!
    11.  sliced apples
    12.  cherries, chopped and pitted

A few weeks ago I had some apples and cherries that were starting to turn bad in the fridge.  I stuck them in the Magic Bullet until pureed.  I portioned it in the freezer and saved it for just the right meal!  Bailey ate TONS of it.  I had to cut her off.

!2 ingredients, 3 pans, and one simple, delicious, kid friendly meal!

Dessert was even simpler- ice cream cones at "The Big Cow," aka Jilberts!
