The temperatures dictate that it is spring here in Georgia and that means ALL the home improvement stores are stock piled with plants! I simply love meandering through aisle upon aisle, sniffing and ogling at all the flowers and shrubs and fruit trees. In years past, before I moved to this condo, this was around the time when I’d be buying annuals and pine straw and gallon upon gallon of weed killer for my yard, and then proceed to be elbow deep in dirt for the rest of this season.
When I bought this yard-less condo, I was elated at the amount of mullah I’d be saving by not having to make those yard maintenance purchases. Not to mention, the time I’d be saving too. But, when I wonder down those aisles at home improvement stores, ogling at an arsenal of my favorite zinnia and verbena, I cannot help but miss that feeling of planting something and watching it grow and flourish the rest of the season. I guess this is my chance to try my hand at vertical gardening on my small balcony -eh? But, while I mull over that, I must say, I have enjoyed the extra time I’ve had on my hands.
For the first time in forever, I’ve actually managed to meal prep for 5-7 days. Which means long walks with my dogs and long workouts with my daughter at the gym for those 5 to 7 days. However, those weeks when I meal prep for only 5 days, I have 2 days when I am left mulling over going out for dinner. Since my daughter and I love to eat in, I end up cooking something that’s super quick, super easy and super tasty like these Easy Pan Seared Sweet and Spicy Pork Chops!

• and, honey!
You can serve these chops with some quinoa or a salad, or you can enjoy them with some turmeric millet and some Sweet and Spicy Carrots like we did.
