FFF / Fabulous Food Friday

I have a Weight Watcher 'friendly' recipe to share with you today! The first time Mark and Jeannie cooked it I was sceptical. I was pregnant with Hayden, and the smell of the sauce was so strong. That was only my pregnancy nose talking. It turned out to be a favorite meal for us. WooHoo...only 7 points if you are counting. You could probably do it with chicken...if you are afraid of swine right now. Ha Ha...I know it has nothing to do with food...I just had to insert a comment about all the swine flu mess...dang media. I've never cooked it with chicken, but it might be yummy.

Spicy Pork Au Jus

2 boneless, center cut pork chops, trimmed
1 t. olive oil
¼ C. water
1 ½ t. sugar
1 ½ T. low-sodium Worcestershire
1 ½ T. balsamic vinegar
1 ½ T. low-sodium soy sauce
salt and pepper
saffron rice cooked according to package instructions

Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and peooer. Heat a skillet over high heat; add oil. Add pork and cook 4 minutes a side, or until done. Remove from pan and set aside.

Combine remainder of ingredients. Add to pan and cook over medium-high heat until reduced. Serve sauce over pork chop atop saffron rice.

7 points per serving (rice included)

I couldn't go a day or two without posting a picture of one of the kids....

Yesterday, we played at Sophie and Hunter's house. The boys are so cute together. Hunter is turning 1 year old in June, so he is just a few months older than Hayden. They crawled around the house chasing each another! Hunter was grabbing Hayden's numi (paci), and then Hayden would poke at Hunter's face. Meanwhile, the girls dipped strawberries in chocolate. Messy messy, but super fun and yummy! Thanks for the fun play date!
