Dinner 4 Two Pork, Sweet Potatoes and Brussel Sprouts

Dinner for two, it’s been a while since I have had one of those, let alone had to prepare one. I had a bunch of pork loin chops that I had cut from a few pork loin roasts I got on sale; so I decided to take a trip to the Whole Foods market to jog my creativity for this meal. Sweet potatoes quickly caught my eye… I love them… adore them…. I could eat them every day. Looking around the produce section a bit more… I noticed how beautiful the brussel sprouts looked… I hadn’t had those in a while… Picked up a pound.

I dashed home, happily with fresh produce and orange juice in hand…. When I announced we were having brussel sprouts, he gave me the deer in head lights look… stating his mother used to make them when he was a kid, and how much he hated them. I pointed out she boiled them until mushy most likely, just like my mom used to. He nodded and I had to smirk as I told him.. “these ain’t your momma’s brussel sprouts…” He now has a new love for baby cabbages.. 😛

This is a quick, delicious, dinner for two. It is also a “frugal” recipe, even if it tastes like a million bucks. You can easily make these for more people. Kids also seem to enjoy it.
For dessert, I made traditional flan, using the 2 serving changes and used two individual ramekins.

2 Thoughts on “Friday Night Dinner For Two – Pork, Sweet Taters, and Sprouts”

  • That dinner looks great! I have not tried brussel sprouts since school *shudders at the though* I will have to give them a try cooked this way.

    • Sprouts are best roasted in my opinion. Also steamed so they aren’t mushy, I have also grilled them on the grill and cooked them with some butter and garlic in a frying pan. Mushy is bad VERY BAD!! LOL
