Smothered Pork Chops with Smashed Potatoes

Need a quick meal to get some food in your tummy before the impending sugar rush of the Trick or Treat haul? Yeah, me too. There is a giant bag of mini chocolate goodness that looks like it wont be given out this year due to the crappy weather just calling my name. So before I go all fat kid on that, I figured I should get something remotely healthy in my system.

This weeknight quicky meal comes together with just a few pots and pans and doesn’t disappoint  The addition to cabbage slaw to the smashed potatoes makes for a nice change of pace, and the sauteed onions and mushrooms on top please both members of this household. I call that winning. Now, I have to go hand out some candy (or just turn out the lights and eat it all myself)… Don’t judge.

Have a safe and happy Halloween!

    We do the slaw in the taters thing a lot – such a terrific”all-together” vegetable. I can kind of pretend it’s a bastardized bubble and squeak.

    Beautifully caramelized chops you got there too :)

    Smashed Potatoes! When he was little, that’s what my younger brother thought mashed potatoes were called. And of course, that’s what we called them evermore. ;)
