Happy 2016! Today, the #SundaySupper fam is celebrating National Sunday Supper Month. There was no theme for today’s post – in fact, we were told “The theme is open! Focus on great food and memories with the family.”, because truly that is the Sunday Supper mission – to inspire families to connect around the dinner table more regularly.
The planner in me kind of panicked as to what to make. But then I thought I’d truly channel today’s theme – focus on good food.
I do strive to meal plan each week – it’s pretty much essential if either Jason or I want to eat! With him in school, most of my dinners (during the week, anyway), are either leftovers by myself, or eating out with friends. It won’t always be this way (Jason has one year left of law school!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and I have a few regular tasty dinners that I love to make for us for those evenings where we do get to eat together.
Enter Almond Breaded Pork Chops. We ate a lot of breaded pork chops growing up – and they were always one of my favorite meals. My husband, a simple dude, with simple tastes, loves this meal! Every time I make it, he is a happy guy.
Since we try and stay away from refined carbs, I started using almond meal to replace traditional bread crumbs and/or panko in most dishes that call for it. You really can’t taste a difference. I like to coat thinly sliced boneless pork chops, since they cook faster than thicker cut. I hope you love one of our favorite meals as much as we do!
