Get in the Kitchen! Challenge

Monday, June 02, 2014

In response to the At Goal & Maintaining Plus... Team's Get in the Kitchen Challenge, I took pictures of what I was preparing. The challenge is to encourage people to cook more often because it can be healthier and thriftier and to try new recipes. I kind of fudged, because this is what I was already making when I received the SparkMail,

I looked through cookbooks and SparkRecipes and combined several. I had about 2 pounds of loin pork chops, one pound of fresh bagged sauerkraut, one big green apple, a quarter of a Vidalia onion, a little celery seed, parsley, and a quarter cup of apple juice. Put it all in a slow cooker and cooked it all day at low.

Here it is cooking:

Here it is on separate serving plates:

And here is my plate:

I soaked the sauerkraut, drained, and squeezed it. It did not taste super salty, but I doubt I'll make this again this year, because it just has to be more salt than we need. The sauerkraut had been buy one-get one free and hubby always falls for those!

Hubby and I really enjoyed the recipe, whereas the grandkids didn't eat it at all and their mom and dad only ate a little and clearly were not raving about it. Oh, well.
