Not So Wordless Wednesday: Officially a Soccer Mom

My Bubbie has started playing his first sport... Soccer! I wanted him to play baseball. I may be a little bias but he has a pretty good arm. Long story short, his played his first game a couple Saturdays ago.


I was super excited to find out that his number is 5. This just happens to be my "lucky" number. I was born 5/5/85 at 5:05am. The hubs even lived in house #5 when we met. Could it be fate?!


 He does pretty good at practice but I had no clue how he would do in an actual game. Since the YMCA doesn't keep score for the little ones, I wasn't too nervous. I guess you could say that I was more curious than anything else.


It is with tons of pride that I report that he did awesome! He one of the star players. It doesn't happen often but I do believe that I may have been wrong. Maybe, just maybe, soccer could be his sport.



Brown Sugar Porkchops: Only 5 Ingredients Needed

Brown Sugar Porkchops 

I have a passion for new recipes. Sadly though, being a mom of 4 kids & 3 animals takes up a great deal of my time. This leaves barely any time for trying new recipes. When the family got tired of eating the same ole' stuff though, I had to do something. As a result, these lovely Brown Sugar Porkchops were born. Better yet- they only require five ingredients!!!

Ingredients:

5 Boneless Chops (I prefer All Natural)
Olive Oil
1 cup Brown Sugar
1 tsp. Kosher Salt
1/4 tsp. Cayenne Pepper

 Instructions:
Mix your Brown Sugar, Kosher Salt, & Cayenne Pepper together in a small bowl.

Place a frying pan over medium/high heat. Add your Olive Oil to the pan. Allow the Olive Oil to heat up.
Spread the Brown Sugar mixture on both sides of your pork chops.

Once your frying pan is heated, add your porkchops. 

The size of the chops will determine how long you will need to leave each side down. Also, be sure to keep a watchful eye on the brown sugar because if will begin to burn if over cooked.

Continue to fry your pork chops until they are cooked all the way through.

Remove from pan & serve with delicious sides!
