Still too warm for a traditional roast, so I will make Pan fried, Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops Lemon roasted potatoes for Hubby and Youngest and a big Spinach salad for all of us.

As I am Low carbing, I will use ground almonds instead of flour for the crust, so feel free to exchange that for plain flour.

Take the Pork Chops, dip into the almond flour

then egg, then cheese

you might want to do this twice for a thicker crust.

Toss some halved new potatoes in olive oil, lemon zest and lemon juice, salt and pepper and into an oven proof dish and into a hot (200) oven for approx 30-40 minutes till crisp and golden – toss regularly

Heat a frying pan till very hot, add some olive oil and butter and sear the crusted Chops on each side till they are a deep golden brown – they smell gorgeous.

As our chops are really thick, I am putting them into a lined oven proof tray to cook through for 5-10 minutes and then take out to rest.

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
