What's Cooking Wednesday 3/3

Pork Chops with Fried Apples
    4 Boneless Pork Chops (remember the ones I got for less then a $1)
    seasoned salt
    5 Apples
    4 tablespoons brown sugar
    1/2 Stick of butter
    2 tablespoons Ground Cinnamon

Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Fry the pork chops seasoned with season salt. In another pan heat butter till melted. Add 5 apples that have been peeled, cored, and sliced thinly. Add cinnamon and brown sugar. Cook till soft. Serve apples over pork

This is an extremely easy and affordable meal. Look for the porkchops at your grocery store when they mark down meat. Serve with pasta salad (recipe below) or your favorite side dish.

Rotini Pasta Salad
    1 bag Rotini Pasta (I like the rainbow ones)
    seasoned salt (or favorite spices, Italian seasoning works great!)
    1 bag of frozen peas
    1 can of corn
    1/4 onion (I use red but any is fine)
    Seasoned rice vinegar (or favorite salad dressing)

Cook Pasta according to directions. Drain and add frozen peas (Peas will thaw before serving). Add corn, diced onion, and season salt or spices. Mix well and add Rice Vinegar or favorite dressing. Can be chilled before serving.

*Tip this salad works well with tuna or chicken added into it for a one dish meal. 

~~The above recipes were made with things I keep on hand. Overall both dishes might cost me $1.50 to make and serves 4 people with plenty of pasta left over!~~
