Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Roasted Chops & Veggies

Part Two of today's Kitchen Therapy.  I posted on Facebook that I hoped this would taste as good as it smelled.....and it did! The UPS guy made a delivery while it was cooking and he asked if I had a plate made for him.....he said it smelled so good! If it was done, I would definitely had made him a plate.  Another delicious, easy dish!

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = @7 PointsPlus™

2 tsp parsley flakes
1/2 tsp dried marjoram leaves
1/2 tsp dried thyme leaves
1/2 tsp garlic powder
salt & pepper to taste
4 pork chops, 1/2” thick, all visible fat removed
Olive oil cooking spray
6 new red potatoes, cut into quarters
4 ounces mushrooms (cut in half or slices)
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into 1” pieces
1 medium onion, cut into thin wedges
1 medium tomato, cut into 8 wedges

Preheat oven to 425º. Spray 15x10x1” baking pan with cooking spray.

Mix the herbs together. Spray both sides of the chops with cooking spray. Sprinkle with 1 – 1 1/2 tsp of the herb mixture. Place in the corners of the pan.

Mix the potatoes, mushrooms, bell pepper and onion in a large bowl. Spray with cooking spray and stir. Do this 2 or 3 times. Sprinkle with remaining herb mixture; toss to coat. Spread evenly in the center of the pan between the chops.

Bake uncovered @45 minutes. Turn chops and stir veggies. Place tomato wedges over vegetables and bake an additional 10 – 15 minutes.

MY SPIN: I used more than 4 ounces of mushrooms because we like them and it doesn't add any PointsPlus™ values. I used the olive oil cooking spray on the pan but used olive oil in a mister on the chops and the veggies. I think the next time I make this I'll add brussel sprouts to the veggies.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
