Dinners of late

Here’s another look at a few dinners we’ve enjoyed over the past few weeks. Most of these meals are simple and basic and can be ready in 30 minutes or less. In return I would love to hear some of your quick and easy dinner ideas in the comments.

 Nothing like a traditional New years dinner in September: Pork chops with black eyed peas, cornbread, and roasted okra.

I forgot my camera so here is an iPhone shot under the worst lighting ever. I am only sharing this picture so I can talk about this amazing fillet. Jason and I picked up some steaks from Block and Grinder before leaving for the mountains this past weekend.  We added salt, pepper and a little butter before throwing them on the grill and I can honestly say this was one of the best fillets I have ever had. The quality of meat is everything when it comes to a good fillet.
Served with asparagus and cauliflower/potato mash.

For the mash: Add 1 head of cauliflower and 3 Yukon potatoes to boiling water. Once everything is soft, drain water and blend using an immersion blender. Add butter, salt, and pepper.

    Thanks. I know it doesn’t seem that way by the looks of this post but we don’t buy them nearly enough either. Must change that.
