This weekend was a mix of high and low points. Even though it wasn’t the most awesome weekend ever, I still could have used some more of it.
Watching Pitch Perfect, Catch Me If You Can, Patton, and The Brave One
Crocheting: I did a lot of crocheting this weekend because it is one of the only things that doesn’t make my shoulder worse (post to come soon)
Games: Adam and I played a lot of games together this weekend and we got to hang out with some good friends, Jacob and Lauren to play games also
Pan Pizza from Dominos with a gift card
Shoulder pain all the time
Not being able to sleep for most of the weekend
movies that weren’t as good as I was expecting
Having a wonderful blog post written about preparing myself for church and having it deleted and the draft not even saved
Never winning a pioneer woman contest
This year for the Super Bowl Adam and I decided to stay home, hang out together, and watch the Super Bowl.
Well, I still wanted us to have party food, so we enjoyed some teenie weenies wrapped in bacon and brown sugar,Then I made chicken cheesy bacon sliders, a pioneer woman recipe, and they were delicious!
And to have along with this, baked beans
Mmm good 🙂
So we just enjoyed some good food, played some games together, and laughed at the funny commercials. Oh yeah, and watched a football game. It was a great night.
Last night we tried this new recipe: Pork Chops with Apples and Creamy Bacon Grits and it was delicious!!
You use 6 pork chops, so it feeds more than just 2 people, so we had some friends over to share it with.
I was going to take lots of delicious pictures for you but I forgot because we were playing games while I was cooking.
From start to finish, making both dishes, this took just under two hours to make.
In The Pioneer Woman’s recipe she calls for stone ground grits. Well, I had no idea where to get these, definitely not at Food City, so I just got a regular bag of grits and they worked just fine for us.
I would highly recommend this dish! The grits are cheesy, bacony and delicious. The pork chops are so yummy with the apples and the glaze. Mmm. I think I’ll even have some leftover bacon cheese grits for breakfast!
Also, if you don’t know The Pioneer Woman, you need to! Most of my favorite recipes come from her. And while she is cooking for a family of 6 and me for 2, we just have lots of leftovers of her amazing recipes, so we don’t complain very often. And if you make this recipe and need someone to help you eat it Adam and I will happily volunteer.
