When I first started living on my own, I never knew what to cook. My mom had always done all the work in the kitchen including the meal planning, prep, and cooking. I wished back then that I would have paid more attention, now that I’m responsible for feeding myself. I started out making a lot of chicken breasts. Mainly just because that was something that I could make in a single serving portion. That, and it’s pretty much full proof, meaning that you can’t really mess chicken up. I headed up to the grocery store with some spare time one day, and I decided that I was going to browse around and see what else I could come up with for a main meat entree. That’s when I saw pork chops. Oh yeah! Mom used to make those all the time.

So, I purchased a package and took them home with me. Unfortunately, that’s where they sat for a few weeks. Right in the freezer. Then, I decided I was going to turn them into a casserole with a few other items that I had also purchased. Mom always told me that you can add soup and rice to just about anything and make it good.
The end result turned out a lot like this recipe from South Your Mouth. It looked amazing, and the flavor was even better than what I expected. I didn’t think that I would ever be able to make something this tasty myself, but I did it!
