Pork Chops & Apples - A healthy delicious main dish and dessertPork Chops & Apples are a healthy way to serve a delicious meal and dessert. The juice from the apples bakes into the pork chops creating a tender meat. The apples are a bonus delight!

Before I give you this awesome recipe, I want to share with you the gift I received from my family. I have had the supreme luxury of having my house all to myself for the last few days. It’s peaceful and quiet!

Time alone is healthy and important for a multitude of reasons. My favorite reason is that it helps to avoid burn-out as a parent and wife. I love my family dearly but time apart is a blessing.

I don’t have to deal with eye-rolling from my teen-aged daughter or deal with Mr. Cranky-pants when he comes home from a bad day at work. It truly allows me to unwind and relax. When they come back, I appreciate them for all the positive things that they are.

For a list of other good reasons to spend time alone, please visit: Psychology Today.

Alright, enough about that. Let’s get to the recipe.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again.. I love pork chop but my hubby generally doesn’t. This is one of those recipe that he likes.

Enjoy!

  5. I’ve never seen these two paired up. Sounds and looks good though. Gonna pin it to try :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    • Hi Bobbi.. I swear they go together nicely and you won’t regret trying them. My mom thought I was off my rockers until I served them up to her. :D ~Stacy

  6. Thanks for sharing this recipe with us on Five Friday Finds. Looking forward to what you share this week. :)

  7. Stacy I like to cook healthy so I used olive oil instead of butter to brown the porkchops. But using the oil as much as I do it didn’t seem to make a difference. But with the apples and chops spices and all it was very good. Thank You.

  8. Can’t go wrong with pork and apples! Looks yummy! Thanks for linking it at Tasty Tuesdays!

  9. I agree time alone is very important. My hubby takes the kids out for a few hours on Mother’s Day to give me a break and that’s one of the best gifts ever.
    The recipe sounds like a great time saver to prep dinner and dessert together. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday.

    • When you have kids, ten minutes alone often seems like a vacation! So great that you hubby does that for you!!! Thanks for dropping by :)
