Sometimes I am surprised by how fast I can throw a meal together. Since I have started working part-time, we have had to adjust our lifestyle to suit an odd schedule. Yesterday afternoon, between clients, I stopped at the grocery store and bought two pork chops. I ran home, popped them into a big cast iron kettle, scrubbed and added a couple potatoes and some baby carrots. I covered the pot and put it in the oven. I cut an acorn squash in half, scooped out the seeds and put the halves upside down on a cookie sheet. It went in the oven, too. When I got home an hour later, it was all done and we had a lovely meal!! Including the stop at the store, it took less than 20 minutes to prepare. I served it with some applesauce (home canned) and frozen blueberries. yummmmm…..
