I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Pork Chops with Stewed Veggies

Or it could be called Pork with Zucchini-less Ratatouille....

4 thick cut pork chops
2 cups eggplant, cut in 1" cubes
2 stalks celery, sliced
1 onion, sliced
1 - 28 oz can diced tomatoes
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 + 1 tbsps olive oil
1 tbsp oregano
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
2 tsps basil
salt to taste

Sprinkle some of the oregano and basil on the pork chops and refrigerate 1 - 2 hours.

Heat 2 tbsps olive oil in a frying pan and brown the chops on both sides. Remove from pan.  

In the same pan add 1 tbsp olive oil with onion, garlic and celery and cook 1-2 minutes. Next add the eggplant, oregano, basil and salt. Cook 2 - 3 minutes

Stir in the canned tomatoes and red wine vinegar and heat through. Place the stewed veggies (ratatouille) in a baking dish and nestle in the chops. Add more oregano and basil if you like. 

Cover and bake in a 350 F oven for 35 minutes.
Smells wonderful!
