In the Kitchen: Hello Fresh: Pork Chops with Rosemary-Grape Salsa

Hi, Everyone!

In an effort to spend less time meal planning and more time reading, I decided to give Hello Fresh a try. It costs less than taking the whole family to a restaurant, and it seemed like a fun way to add some new recipes to my repertoire.

Tonight:Pork Chops with Rosemary-Grape Salsa, Sweet Potatoes, and Roasted Broccolini

The recipe card is a bit smaller than Blue Apron & Home Chef, but it provides all sorts of nutritional information, including what and how much you need of each item to make the meal again for either 2 or 4 people.

 

As I was cooking for 4 (well, considering how much my kidlets eat I’d say 2.5 is a more accurate number), I tossed in a few baby yukons with the sweet potatoes. Babykins doesn’t have enough teeth for pork chops yet, and Goober is currently refusing to eat anything that isn’t chicken fingers, so I didn’t add any extra meat to the meal.

If I make it again: I think I’ll try the salsa with some other, tangier fruit . . . Husband suggests pomegranate, but I think mango might also work. The shallots and rosemary were awesome, but we thought the grapes were a bit too sweet.

Did my kids eat it: They chowed down on the potatoes. Babykins loved the grapes, and neither kiddo would attempt the broccolini (which was delicious, by the way).
