    This is a once a week menu. We pan cooked two pork chops and then baked them with the pepper and onion mixture on top. It was so good. We added a jalapeno to the sweet mini bell peppers. We ate the salad on its own. This looks delicious! Would you mind sharing the nutritional information? When I hit the nutritional information button nothing happens. Thanks so much!
