Pork Nuggets and Carrots

Son loves food that he can hold and has a kick to it. I also wnat him to eat healthy.
As with all my recipes, I don’t follow directions too well AND don’t give good directions, I remember it all in my head and make it up as I go along. I see a pic and try to figure it out. I SUCK AT BAKING THOUGH, LOL

Ingredients:
One pork cutlet
olive oil
french fried french onions
bread crumbs
eggs
minced garlic, curry, all spice
fresh baby carrots

Cast Iron Skillet

Directions:
cut raw pork cutlet into strips

Marinate in eggs and seasonings

Coat in breadcrumbs and crushed french onions

Cook pork strips in skillet on stove top, only a few minutes on each side. they are thin and will cook fast, you don’t want to dry thenmout.

Remove when cooked and place on paper towel to blot away excess oil.

Place fresh carrots in skillet and sprinkle with seasonings and extra oil.

Cover skillet and put in oven at 300 for twenty minutes.

Carrots will be cooked but still have some crunch to them. You donn’t want them soggy.

*We have an electric stove, which cooks quite fast. Before we moved, our gas stove took a long time to cook. 

**This was a fast and easy meal to cook. This was just for son and I, hubby REFUSES to eat pork cutlets, but I do love them. 

Mommy’s awesome sauce and meatballs

Hubby and son love this, as Italian men they can’t NOT eat pasta, sauce and meatballs.
As with all my recipes, I don’t follow directions too well. I like to make it up as I go along. I find that makes my dinners rock. 

Ingredients:
Jar sauce
1/2 cup water
frozen meatballs
oregano, chives, parsley, diced garlic and onions
two sausage links, with skin removed.
Cast Iron Skillet

Directions:
Cook sausage and break up into small pieces in cast iron skillet on stove top.

Once sausage is 3/4 cooked, shut off stove top

Add sauce, water, seasonsings, meatballs to skillett

Put top on and place in oven at 300 degrees for half hour

*we have an electric stove, which cooks quite fast. Before we moved, our gas stove took a long time to cook. 

**Yes, they are frozen meatballs and jarred sauce. No I do not cook from scratch. If you are one of those moms that can do that, then good for you. I don’t try to be someone I’m not or try things that I know aren’t for me. My son thinks I’m super mom and that is good enough for me.
