It’s All in the Timing

I know, I know. I’ve been gone for a while. I needed to spend some time on some personal stuff. But I’m back! I never really left – just needed a mental break. But I’ve been thinking about Simply in the Flavor every day. 🙂

Often my friends will ask me how I’m able to time meals that I’m cooking so that everything is ready at the same time. My trick is simple. Everything that I cook is pretty easy and does not need a lot of attention. For example, tonight I’m making ridiculously easy roasted potatoes and Brussels sprouts with even more embarrassingly easy pork chops. The potatoes and sprouts all go in one baking dish and get popped in the oven for a little over and hour. Meanwhile the pork chops take about 10 minutes total. I’ve had the potatoes in for about 40 minutes and am taking the down time to write this blog post. Multitasking is so hot right now.

Anyway, this bone-in pork recipe makes incredibly juicy and flavorful chops. The potatoes and sprouts add a colorful and tasty pop to the plate. While the overall time on this meal takes about an hour and thirty minutes, you’ll have time to throw in a load of laundry, play a few rounds of letterpress, update your blog and check Facebook 27 times before you even have to worry about throwing the chops on the grill pan. Bon appetit!
