What’s for dinner? Mushroom and Tomato Smothered Pork Chops

What's for dinner? Mushroom and Tomato Smothered Pork Chops | Sarcastic Cooking

This week’s edition of the series that I like to think is single-handedly bringing America back to the dinner table features a rendition of a dish my mom made for us all the time when we were growing up. In our house, they were called Polish pork chops. It says something when a dish successfully feeds a family of five and never gets complaints.

In fact, I tried to make my Mom’s version on the blog way back when. Follow this link if you want to see crappy pictures. Also, my Mom just informed me recently that I messed up the blog version because I used crushed tomatoes instead of canned diced tomatoes. Oops! Despite the first version being a little soupy, it was still good. Not my Mom’s version good, but good none the less. [Read more…]

I’m not gunna do what you guys think I’m gunna do. I’m not gunna talk about the stuff that is outside on my lawn, front steps, and driveway. Talking about how hard it is to carry on with real life while the stuff I’m not talking about is on the ground is kind of hard to do. Plus, Netflix.

Winter makes me crave comfort dishes. It also makes me so thankful for the forgiving stretchy waistband in yoga pants. Comfort food for me is bread (plus or minus soup), but for Mike that means lasagna. [Read more…]

Well, in the matter of a week, we are in the midst of fall, people, that is until October hits and we end up back in the 80’s for a week. Isn’t that how it always is though? Since we are better friends here, I will quit with the small talk about the weather.

A change in seasons always makes me want to do heavy duty cleaning and rearranging. Mike is a huge fan of this quality about me. He is the one who does all the heavy lifting all around here so you better believe he looooves this quality about me. Over the weekend we completely rearranged our living room and front room area. In addition to the rearrange we did some light baby proofing since somebody is all about crawling and pulling himself up to standing on things. [Read more…]

This is my least favorite time of year. Summer is over, technically. Mike is back in school and football season has started. However, the 80 degree weather we have been having says, “Hey, guys I’m still here!” Oh, that was summer shouting by the way. [Read more…]

You ever have one of those conversations with a close friend or significant other that starts, “I haven’t told anybody this before but…”

Mike and I often find ourselves in these weird conversations. They are always so weird and take a sudden turn into weirdness, so much so that we have no idea how we got to this point we are at right now.

The other night we were both so sleep deprived (effects of having a teething child) and I think that made us a little loopy. We somehow got on the topic of a will and burials. I know, super morbid, right? It makes sense though. We have a little guy to take care of now so we need to make sure we have things in place and talk about these big deal real life adult things. Because you never know. [Read more…]
