March Madness!

Happy March everyone!  I can't believe it's March already!  I am pretty excited that it's almost spring.  I've got spring break coming up eventually... and next weekend we "spring forward" and lose sleep, but it will be sunnier in the mornings (I think).  That makes sense, doesn't it?  I could never be a time traveller.  I'd get too confused.

I'm sorry I've been kind of MIA.  Two grad classes is a little overwhelming and I've been really bad about cooking new things.  I have been cooking, so that's a plus.  You just already have links to all of those recipes!  I decided I wanted to cook some new things this week, so I planned it all out.  I also did a lot of cooking this weekend so that lunches and dinners are going to be ready to go throughout the week.  I made Eggplant Parmigiana and Taco/Bacon Noodley Goodness and they are in giant containers sitting in the fridge.  I think you can search for those recipes through my site if you're interested!  Let me know if that works.  :-)

I also discovered that apple cider, when left sitting in the fridge for a while, explodes.  Yep.  Sticky, gooey mess all over everything.  Who knew?

Back to dinner.  Here's what I made tonight:

Maple Pork Chops

Bacon, Cremini, & Brie Potato

...oh, and steamed asparagus.  We drizzled the asparagus with the maple concoction leftover from the pork.  Super yum.  The pork was all tender and sweet.  I think it might be my favorite way to cook pork so far (not that I've tried very many). 

The potatoes were to die for.  I know, you can barely see the potato in that picture!  They are exactly as they sound from the caption.  Unfortunately, I cannot post the link because they are a "member only" recipe on the Taste of Home site.  They do say it all right in the name though.  These were really fabulous.  You know, if you like bacon and cheese.  The mushrooms were a good touch, too.  Baked potatoes are seriously filling.  I always seem to forget that when I sit down to eat one and then remember about halfway through. 

I can't promise I'll be more regular with my posts, but I'll try!  The good news is that I'll be completely done with my Master's degree by July!  Can't wait.  :-)

Seeyas soon!
