I've made fried pork chops plenty of times, but tonight everything with dinner just came together perfectly! Of course, tonight just happens to be the night my husband isn't even hungry.
I love to try new things. Cooking and planning meals makes me happy. The meal doesn't always end up as great as I'd hope, but that's the wonderful thing about having a husband who may be lacking a few taste buds (or is a really good actor). He'll eat anything I make! Yesterday it was Ribeye steaks with balsamic roasted broccoli and homemade mac & cheese. NOTHING came out right. The steaks weren't bad, but a little more medium than I like (I like it pretty rare though). The broccoli had a bit to much bite and the mac & cheese became a little "gritty". It was very disappointing, but I guess not all Pinterest recipes can come out perfect!
TONIGHT was perfect though, but don't ask my husband! Some pinterest recipes that hit a home run!
HONEY TERIYAKI HOT WINGS (appetizer)
Coutesy of damndelicious.net - though I edited mine due to some missing ingredients!
1. Pre-heat oven to 375°
2. in a small cup, mix the following:
-1 Tbs cornstarch
-1 Tbs water
3. In a bowl mix the following
-1 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce
-1/2 cup honey
-2-3 Tbs Sriracha (thanks to my husbands love of hot sauce, I actually had this!)
I completely forgot to add the garlic, but it turned out wonderful anyway!
4. Place chicken wings into a baking dish, being sure to do a single layer.
5. Cover with sauce mixture. This should not fully cover the wings, but it will get close.
6. Bake for 45-50 minutes. Turn half way through (I forgot that too).
7. After baking, turn the broiler on for a couple minutes to get that crispy yumminess.
Here's my finished product. They were SO YUMMY!
Next I simply made fried pork chops and fingerling potatoes. Both were so easy. I just salt and peppered the the pork chops and placed in a hot frying pan with a little EVOO.
Roasted fingerling potatoes are just as easy. I tossed them in some olive oil and used a little seasoning salt I had made. Place in a 425° oven for 25 minutes and then broil to crisp up a bit.
Now to figure out what to make tomorrow night! :) Off to Pinterest I go!
