Spicing it up with Jerk Pork January 11, 2011

I’m actually doing better at breakfast lately, having an abundance of Tangerines and Strawberries from the SFC FArmer’s Market on Wednesdays.  Tangerine juice is delicious.

I pre-cooked several meals for my parents to re-heat upon return from dad’s hospital stay.  Last night I cooked for myself.  I had some Richardson Farms pork chops from the farmer’s market Saturday.

I wanted to try my Jerk Seasoning from Savory Spice on Sixth, so I used that liberally.  For added heat and flavor, I chopped up some jalapenos and green onions, and tossed those in.  Acid is always helpful, so I also poured in a little of the aforementioned tangerine juice and stuck the dish in a 350 degree oven.  I made some Lowell Farms Brown Jasmine Rice, and sauteed some Springfield Farms spinach in a little butter.

This looks like a crazy amount of food, but the chop was much smaller once I removed the bone.  I was happy with dinner, although I could have been less heavy handed with the jerk seasoning.  The garnish is parsley from a plant right outside my back door.  It is now covered for the impending freeze.

 

I still haven’t had any reason to go to the grocery store, and I can’t think of what I might need to go for.  I have everything I need.
