TASTY TUESDAY











POLYNESIAN PORK CHOPS

INGREDIENTS
4 boneless pork chops, 3/4-inch thick (about 1 pound)

1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Golden Mushroom Soup
1/4 cup water
1 can (8 ounces) pineapple chunks, drained, reserving juice
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
2 cups hot cooked regular long-grain white rice
Sliced green onion

DIRECTIONS
1. Season the pork with the garlic powder.
2. Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until well browned on both sides.
3. Add the onion, soup, water, pineapple juice, soy sauce and honey to the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes or until the pork is cooked through. Stir in the pineapple. Serve the pork and sauce with the rice and sprinkle with the green onion.

Cook snap peas as directed,   and I love white rice, perfect rice every time, 1 cup rice to two cups water, rice, salt, a tablespoon of butter, bring to boil and cover simmer about 15 mins until done, flake with a fork, perfect.

DESSERT (BLUEBERRY COBBLER)



















INGREDIENTS

2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen blueberries
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 cup white sugar, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
6 tablespoons white sugar
5 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
2 teaspoons sugar
1 pinch ground cinnamon


DIRECTIONS
Lightly grease an 8 inch square baking dish. Place the blueberries into the baking dish, and mix with vanilla and lemon juice. Sprinkle with 1 cup of sugar and 1/2 teaspoon of flour, then stir in the tablespoon of melted butter. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, stir together 1 3/4 cups of flour, baking powder, and 6 tablespoons sugar. Rub in the 5 tablespoons butter using your fingers, or cut in with a pastry blender until it is in small pieces. Make a well in the center, and quickly stir in the milk. Mix just until moistened. You should have a very thick batter, or very wet dough. You may need to add a splash more milk. Cover, and let batter rest for 10 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spoon the batter over the blueberries, leaving only a few small holes for the berries to peek through. Mix together the cinnamon and 2 teaspoons sugar; sprinkle over the top.
Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the top is golden brown. A knife inserted into the topping should come out clean - of course there will be blueberry syrup on the knife. Let cool until just warm before serving. This can store in the refrigerator for 2 days.

These dishes are wonderful, proven, and so delicious, I hope you enjoy them.
My men are going out in the boat today, my eldest son is down visiting with us for a few days, so hope they catch a mess of  good fish today.  Me I will find some thing to do around here, always lots to do, and never enough time, so perhaps I can clean some closets out, and get my study in order, it is just too much stuff sitting around in here.
I was thinking about how good the lord is, and how he has blessed us, what a wonderful Saviour we serve, and how I really do appreciate all he does for us. I have to give a little scripture here, I never want to leave my lord out, and some times we are so guilty of that. Shame on me, I get busy and I get to rambling and I seem to forget who gives all the wonderful thoughts, the great abilities to cook these scrumptious meals I prepare, and who gives me the health to do all these things, yes God has been so very good to us, and let us live a comfortable and long life, I definitely am too old to die young now, lol to God be the glory. As I was reading this morning, I came across Job and what a wonderful and faithful servant he was. God sure let him suffer, and wow the faith he had. Oh that I have just a little of his faith, like Elisha said of Elijah, give me a double portion of what he had, I ask for just a little of the faith Job had. These verses I picked are about taste, and you can see how important taste was to God, he give much mention in his word about taste, in fact it occurs 22 times in 21 verses in the KJV.

Job 6:6 "Can that which is unsavoury be eaten without salt? or is there any taste in the white of an egg?"
Psalm 119:103 "How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!"

In Luke Jesus tells us that many will not eat at his supper, he is referring to the marriage supper of the Lamb, it is only for those who have been saved, bought with the blood of Christ, sad but we will be the only ones sitting with Jesus, and supping with him, Oh praise God, he came to me, and I made myself ready, thank you lord.
Now my friends I hope you have a wonderful day, and that God blesses you real good.
Lots of Hugs, Barbara♥

Grammy Blick said...

What would you suggest as a substitute for the soup? For Beloved Husband, it adds a bit too much sodium and just a bit high in calories. It sounds really delicious! And that cobbler -- oh, boy! A winner.

Barbara said...

Grammy you know they make a low sodium cream of mushroom soup, and low cal too and you can subsitute the sugar in the cobbler with Splenda too, lots of ways to cut back on calories and salt. Hugs

Karen said...

Yes, the Lord is so very good to us and sends blessings beyond measure...

Now if we were neighbors, I would bring a big churn of homemade vanilla ice cream to eat with that lovely cobbler....

Jean Tuthill said...

Yum! They both look so good. Thanks for the recipes and I will print these out and try them some time soon.

Barbara said...

Wouldn't it be just wonderful if we all were neighbors and could sit and chat side by side, and bring to each other the goods of our hands, that would be such fun, we live so far and remote from everyone, I have little company, my family lives a few hours away and most friends too, so it is good to come here and see so many I can relate to and be friends with. thank you and yes Karen that ice cream would be just perfect on this cobbler

Carissa said...

Mmm! That blueberry cobbler sounds good! I LOVE blueberries!
