Brined Pork Chops with Gillham’s Free Range Eggs

I am sure that everyone has their own method to brine meat, even when you google it, there are so many options. This week, I decided to brine some pork chops, my method is simple! First step, get a tupperware that is big enough for the pork chops and liquid that will cover above the pork chops.   Put the pork chops in the tupperware and add cold water into the tupperware, enough water to cover above the pork chops. I then add sea salt, crushed peppercorns,  a dash of dried thyme, a dash of dried sage, a dash of dried rosemary, 2 bay leaves, slices of one lemon and a few pieces of crushed garlic!  I then close up the tupperware and leave it in the refrigerator overnight!

The next day, the pork chops were ready! We just used the frying method and our brined pork chops came out sooo good! All the ingredients I added into the water blended perfectly together, I loved the aromas! We also decided to fry ourselves some eggs too!  Who doesn’t like eggs over rice? We recently got some Gillham’s Free Range Eggs from Farm Fresh To You, and these eggs were really fresh and the golden yolks were delicious!

Penne with Creamed Leek and Spinach

A friend of ours who works for Farm Fresh To You came over and gave us a wonderful box of organic vegetables and fruits! For those of you who are not familiar with Farm Fresh To You, they deliver fresh organic vegetables and fruits right to your door, it’s a great concept! We had lots of vegetables which I used to cook a big pot of vegetables soup. All we had left were some leek and spinach. I’m Chinese, I never grew up using leek, I had to actually go to YouTube to see how to clean and prepare it.  As I was searching for an easy recipe, I found a recipe for Fusilli with Creamed Leek and Spinach!  I didn’t have Fusilli but I had Penne and this creamy Leek and Spinach sauce was perfect for it! My hubby and I really enjoyed this pasta dish and I definitely recommend this simple recipe!

Refreshing Lemon Cucumbers

A friend of ours who works for Farm Fresh To You recently gave us some Lemon Cucumbers! When he gave them to us, I had no clue what this not so attractive fruit or vegetable was. However, after I sliced them, I noticed how pretty they were inside, they look just like cucumbers! This Lemon Cucumber is another reason why you should never judge a book by its cover! They look like a deformed lemon,  smells like a cucumber, crunchy on the outside and tastes a little tart with the refreshing cucumber flavors! I love it, this is my new favorite snack!
