A month or so ago, I was reading my monthly copy of Fitness, when I ran across "6 Light and Healthy Summer Recipes." Now, I'm the queen of brown bag lunches, but dinner and fancy desserts often find me leaving out ingredients, timing various steps poorly, and frantically improvising to earn the stamp of "edible."
But these recipes looked so friendly and chill that I was emboldened to try one out. I asked my husband to pick his poison, and the verdict was Pork Scallopine with Sugar Snap Peas.
I was mildly concerned because when recipes say, "Total time: 30 minutes," it translates to 60+ meghaminutes. This recipe gave me 20, and by the grace of God I did it in 30. Can you PR in cooking?
|Dredging pork. Sounds gross...like dreadlocks.|
|I love vegetables that have "sugar" in their name.|
I did everything all by myself - even opening the wine!!!
Bloggers often totally overlook the less-glamorous side of cooking...the dishes:
But thanks to my mad FlyLady skills (seriously, they will get their own post soon!), it didn't take me too long after dinner to clean up the craziness.
I seriously can't believe that no tastebuds were harmed in the making of this meal.
Maybe the colors didn't turn out quite as pretty as the magazine...but otherwise it was a pretty insane dinner.
My hubby was impressed. Not just proud of me for trying. Legitimately impressed.
No wonder after that I stayed up all night baking cookies...
