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…]

Are you sick of getting asked, “What’s for dinner?” Are you sick of asking yourself that question? Did you maybe not realize that, once you became a mom, your life would revolve around food? Well, if you answered yes to any of those questions, then do I have something for you! The automatic-chef-in-a-box-2000!

No. Not really it is just me and my big brain trying to help you answer that question. [Read more…]

Meatless Monday: Creamy Vegan Roasted Tomato Sauce

I am sure if you are anything like me, you look at people’s Instagram pictures or Facebook posts and want to virtually vomit when you read about how their kids sleep through the night and sleep late waking them up with quiet kisses or when you see pictures of kids in totally unstained hipster chic clothes. Is that reality? That certainly is not my reality.

Yesterday, while Andy was crying because I wouldn’t let him have my coffee cup, I was thinking that a picture of that is what people should be posting on social media. It would be a sign of comradery, like we are all in this craziness together. It would be a way of saying, “Don’t worry, my kid just spilled roasted red pepper soup all over that cute and clean sweatshirt too!” [Read more…]

Hey! All you adults out there! Do you budget? No, it isn’t some new-fangled slang term that means something weird or sexual. It is just a straight up budget, a spending plan, so to speak. Since the age of 23, give or take five years, I have had my fair share of budgeted living and Excel spreadsheets shoved in my face about what I earn and how I spend.

Spoiler alert: One of those is way higher than the other one, and it isn’t my income. [Read more…]

I don’t know if I have maybe led on to this before, but I am really not a chicken kind of girl. I am a literal chicken, yes. You can ask my brothers about that one! When we were kids, my younger brothers both jumped off the top of the monkey bars one afternoon. I stood up there until dinner time scared out of my mind but convinced that I was going to jump. I did it finally as my mom was calling us in for dinner. My brothers were far enough away so, lucky for me, they couldn’t see my chicken tears and my flailing fall looked like a jump to them. But yeah, chicken through and through. [Read more…]
