Garlic and Sage Pork Chops with the Creamiest Mashed Potatoes Everrrr

27 Sep

We have the creamiest mashed potatoes ever, and we have the longest title ever.

Sometimes you just have to make a long title to get your point across.

First lets talk about some TV things. We all know it’s the season for new and returning series and to be honest, I am feeling overwhelmed with the amount of new shows that look amazing. The shows that I am continuing to watch from last season are:

- Modern Family

- Big Bang Theory

- New Girl

- Girls (which isn’t on till later in the year)

- then just randoms like Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations and The Layover, SNL, ect.

But now I am really screwed. There are like 10 new shows that I want to start watching and I know I just don’t have the time it’s not good for you to watch that much TV.

The other night, I started watching Hostages, and now of course I am hooked. Can we just talk about how much drama they managed to jam into that first episode. WOW. Also, I am intrigued by this show because it seems more like a movie plot, rather than a TV series. It will be interesting to see how they continue with the show.

We also caught an episode of The Goldbergs, which was hilarious. I absolutely love Wendy McLendon-Covey, pure comedy right there.

I’m also super interested in:

-Trophy Wife

-Hello Ladies

-The Blacklist

What have you guys been watching!? Do you have an insight as to which shows I should commit to?

Anyhoo, on to the goods.

I made this last week when I just felt like a ‘fall’ meal. I wanted something hearty, with some type of pan sauce. I threw this meal together pretty quickly and it was delish. Typically you would want to have some veggies with your meal. Don’t worry, we had salad which is not pictured.

I seared off the pork chops and then removed them from the pan, added some olive oil, chopped garlic and sage. Then added some chicken stock and white wine to de-glaze. I seasoned it up and then added the pork chops back to the pan, covered it and simmered for a couple minutes to cook the chops through. Then I served the pork chops and pan sauce, over a scoop of the best mashed potatoes ever.

The end.

Miss Delish asks:

What new/returning shows are you into this season?

What dish comes to mind when you think of fall?

I re-created “Olive Garden’s” famous Zuppa Toscana soup. Which has been a favorite of mine forevs.

I made the recipe much lighter but still kept the full flavor and creaminess! And you can enjoy a serving of this for 200 calories.

Pumpkin Spice Donuts

26 Sep

So, I made these little cuties.

They’re just so….*ahhhh* angels singing.

And to boot they’re freakin’ easy and quick to make.

All you need is a spice cake mix, can of pumpkin puree, oil, eggs, cream cheese, powdered sugar and milk. OH and sprinkles, can’t forget the sprinkles.

Mind are just terrible looking, compared to the beauties on this pinterest pic.

I just chalk it up to the fact that none of my pinterest endeavors will ever look like the picture. Much less disappointing that way.

Check out the recipe here!

Talk to ya’ll later.
