This was a quick and easy dinner and perfect for a fall evening. I was able to use up the least few apples we had left from apple picking. I wasn't sure how this would go over with the family, so I was a little surprised when everyone loved it. We will definitely be making this again.
- 6 pork chops - I used a boneless pork roast that I sliced about 1/2" thick
- 4 Tbsp flour
- 1/2 tsp onion powder
- 3/4 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 tsp butter
- 1 med onion, sliced
- 2 cups thinly sliced apples
- 3 Tbsp BBQ sauce
- 2 tsp honey
- 3 cloves garlic minced or crushed
- salt and pepper to taste
In a pie plate mix flour, onion powder, garlic powder and paprika. Season pork chops with salt and pepper and then dredge in the flour mixture.
In a skillet melt the butter with the olive oil. Brown the pork chops on both sides. Add the onions, apples, BBQ sauce, honey, and garlic.
Cover and simmer about 45 minutes or until the chops are tender.
Serve over hot cooked rice.
- white cardstock
- crayons or oil pastels
- black tempera paint
- castile soap
- pointed object - tooth pick, knitting needle, sharpened dowel
One the cardstock, use the crayons or oil pastels to cover the entire paper with random shapes of color. The smaller the patches of color the more
Mix black tempera paint with castile soap - about a 4:1 ratio (you are putting just enough castile soap to break the paint so that when scratched off it doesn't flake) Let the paint mixture dry completely.

These two little jars wont last long. Luckily you can roast squash seed the same way so we will be replenishing out stash throughout the fall.
Stayed tuned for the carved pumpkins - they came out really well. Everyone was inspired after seeing a carving competition last week.

Anyway, we have supported her passion and she has become the family cake baker. She didn't let us down with this four layer peanut butter cake with peanut butter cream filling and chocolate frosting.

Rebekah is sure she knows where the best apples in the orchard will be found and she is making sure Sarah know just where to go.
A little help for a big sister and that perfect apple is just in reach.
And boy does it ever taste good!
Stay tuned for updates on all our apple cooking fun!

Hannah and Rebekah couldn't wait to collect the first treasure. Rebekah carried it oh so carefully back to the house. By the end of the day we had our second egg that Sarah and Dad got to collect.
Today we had an egg, but I waited for the girls to go and collect it and somehow it disappeared! Anyone have any ideas? I really hope we don't have a little critter stealing eggs. The second egg today was beautiful, but cracked. Once again, don't know what happened. Thinking maybe the hen stepped on it. I sure hope it isn't our little egg stealing critter.
