Perfect Autumn Dinner

October 8, 2009

So last night I finally had a free night, it has been so crazy with studying and training and clients and hubs working late.  I decided it was time for a tasty and healthy dinner.

I started with my super bargain porkchops from the other day (click HERE if you missed it).

I put in a baking dish and rubbed on just a little bit of this BBQ sauce.  I don’t like a super BBQ flavor, and there is quite a bit of sugar in BBQ sauce.  A little can go a long way to add flavor!

Then I got to work on my veggie pan. 


One sweet potato and one onion for me, one medium and one small white potato for the hubs.  All the veg got cut up and tossed with some olive oil, crushed black pepper and salt.  I kept the onion FAR away from the white potato as my hubs doesn’t like onion at all!


All of this went in a 375 degree oven for approx. 1 hour.

I prepared my apple crisp in the meantime.


3 medium apples (I used macintosh)

1/4 cup flour

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 cup oatmeal

cinnamon and nutmeg to taste

3 tablespoons butter

I cut up the apples and tossed them in a pie pan with the cinnamon and nutmeg.

In a smaller bowl I mixed the oatmeal, flour, and brown sugar and poured it over the top of the apples.  Then I melted the butter and poured it over the top of the crisp.

Halfway through the hour of cook time for the porkchops and veggies I slid the apple crisp in.  It will cook in the 375 degree oven for an hour.

Let’s plate it up! I decided I needed something green too at the last minute, so I cooked up some peas.

And then the crisp! I topped mine with…what else…some greek yogurt! Vanilla of course!

Dinner was great, and my hubs and I enjoyed a nice dinner together, got caught up on our days and were able to relax.

See you later bloggies!

      Have at it! I would actually have used 4 or 5 apples instead of 3…the apples kind of melt down into a nice appley goo, so I should have used more. Enjoy!!!
