Honey Glazed pork chops

This week we celebrated “yum,s” 3rd birthday… she was 18 months when I first started to blog, so I feel you have all watched her grow with me… Her birthday was pretty low keyscooter-yum I made my broken biscuit cake (it’s pretty famous in our family)  and we had a small get together.. “yum” has grown into a happy-go-lucky, affectionate “determined” little girl… (did i say determined?) her giggle would stop you in your tracks.. she tells me a million times a day ” I not a baby, I a big girl” … she’s still a baby and a big girl all at once…

With turning 3, she can now be “a little fussy ” with some  food… she knows what she likes, and that’s pasta, rice and curries, ..  When I cook something different she will eat it, but is a bit more reluctant than her younger self … These honey roast pork chops are a new favourite because they are so tender (you’re not chewing for ages on them) and the veggies go down a treat because they taste so sweet (poetically said). It really is a lovely autumn warming dinner.. (and if I was in a pub for a sunday dinner, it’s exactly what id order) I pick up my chops in the chill section of the supermarket… so well on budget too …

I’m looking forward to hearing how they go down in your family…

  1. Oh I love pork chops with honey. So delicious! Happy 3rd birthday to yum. I think it’s definitely an age thing, my little one is starting to get a bit more fussy and particular with food too x

  2. Made this for dinner this evening. A great success and will definitely make again. Thank you for posting this recipe. We are not fans of mash potatoes so I did roast potatoes instead. No extra hassle as the oven is on already.
