Mustard pork chops

I have gotten to a stage in my life now where I look so forward to being at home on the couch, eating something delicious and watching my shows especially on a Friday night. A few years ago I would be counting down the minutes to have a bottle of wine but these days I count down the minutes til I can get into my comfy clothes and a meal. I look forward to it so much that I will sometimes ensure I have absolutely no plans locked in on the weekend so I can make the most of it and do what I want. It then means I can wake up on Monday feeling somewhat refreshed for the week. I do, however, sometimes feel like I’m being extremely anti-social but I cant help it! I think it is because in the past I have always overbooked myself for everything to the point where I never feel like I have had a break.

So that’s where I am, I’m at home, watching my shows, I had a pretty busy day yesterday doing the Coogee to Bondi walk with some friends. It is such a stunning walking, and given the winter weather yesterday was actually quite warm and sunny it made for a lovely day. In the evening my plan was to getting into my comfy wear, relax and do the things I needed to do like wash my make up brushes, plan the weekly meals, write on this blog and watch the Man U vs All Stars game. I did actually end up going out, JP and I went to the pub to watch the game and meet up with some friends. One drink led to another and after not drinking for over 3 weeks it didn’t take long for me to feel the effects. I kind of wish i didnt drink last night I have only just started eating Paleo and trying to healthy and going out resulted in me consuming something with gluten which I regret and my body regretted so much as well <insert sad face>

What I need to be eating instead of stupid gluten is this mustard pork, oh my god was this good so moist and delicious. I saw this recipe on The Freckled Foodie only amending it slightly for the sauce factor.

I  teamed it up with some braised sour cabbage and it was so warming and comforting. YUM
