Pork Chops

I also made some pork chops and stewed apples for dinner.

Pork chops were pretty basic, Pork chop- flour- egg mixture- bread crumb mix.
The bread crumb mix was 1/2 cup Bread Crumbs, 3 TB Parmesan cheese, 1 tsp of Bombay Blend flavor mix (Daniel Boulid brand).

Then I put sea salt over the top and baked for 45 minutes at 375º… that was a little too long, probably should have stuck to 35 minutes but since I’m preggers I wanted to make sure it got to temperature.
Here’s Anne, my favorite food tester- eating pork chop and stewed apples, only thing missing is the corn on the cob. It came next.

Pumpkin Coffee Cake – Take 1

I wanted to make an easy pumpkin coffee cake…

I came up with these ingredients to try to make it quick:
1 Can of pureed pumpkin
2 3/4 cups of bisquick (next time will reduce to 2 1/4 cups)
1 tsp cinnamon
4 TB sugar
1/3 cup milk
Topping 1:
1/3 cup bisquick
1/3 brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
4 TB butter – I melted it to make the mixture more of a swirl and not a crumb topping
Topping 2: crumb topping
1/3 cup bisquick
1/3 brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
2 TB butter- slightly softened – cut in to make crumb topping.
Here is the result:
This is the pumpkin mix— it was quite dense, and I thought about this but couldn’t change it then! A little too much bisquick.

This is the crumb topping
Before baking 30 minutes at 375º
After 2:
Best enjoyed on your grandmother’s china- with decaf coffee.. (or regular if you are 1. not pregnant and 2. living on the edge)

Next time I’ll be sure to use less bisquick because it was too dense. The flavor was good, but it needed to be more ‘fluffy’.
