windowpane check

I continue to be drawn to all the windowpane check fabric that I keep seeing. I am nervous to commit right now to it, but love how preppy and classic it looks.

pork chops with cilantro rice

The past couple of days have been glorious signs that Spring is coming. It always energizes me when the weather warms up to try new recipes. I fixed these pork chops with cilantro rice a couple weeks ago and again the other night. They are delicious so I thought I would share the recipe. 

What you need:
4 boneless pork chops
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lime
2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro

1. Mix dry seasonings in bowl and sprinkle over both sides of pork chops
2. Heat olive oil in pan over medium and place all pork chops on the pan. Cover. Flip Pork chops every couple minutes until cooked thru
3. Cook rice as you normally would then place in bowl. Toss in cilantro and juice of half a lime into rice and stir. 

If you want the avocado cream sauce, take the flesh of one avocado and two tablespoons of plain yogurt and puree in food processor. Drizzle on top of pork chops. It adds a great flavor! 

I served ours with fresh pineapple chunks!
