As our boys get older, I'm very quickly realizing that my normal recipes are going to need to be doubled. In some cases, tripled. These kids drive me nuts, though, because they'll go through days where I can barely get them to eat a sandwich, and then other days where they literally eat the entire cabinet and are still hungry after! I'm happy to report they absolutely loved this recipe for sweet-and-sour pork! One casserole dish made plenty for all of us, which is somewhat of a challenge with these growing boys.

Another challenge I've been having recently with dinners is timing. I either underestimate how much time it takes to prepare dinner and we're all cranky and starving and eating snacks until it's ready. Or I overestimate how long it takes and it's ready hours before dinner time (some slow cooker recipes can be this way).

I've been really loving testing out some new casserole recipes to share with you. Some take a few minutes to prepare, and generally bake for around 30 minutes. A no-brainer for me to try and figure out when to start dinner! Plus, casseroles are great for putting away leftovers, or even freezing individual portions for quick dinners. I actually used old lunch meat containers and packed some rice, pork, peppers, and pineapple in a few containers to freeze for just that reason!

This is going to be a family favorite dinner in your house, I'm sure of it! Plus with no added sugar, just the sweetness from the pineapple juice, this is a wonderful whole foods dinner!

This was one of those dinners that we decided immediately it would go on regular rotation. That is quite rare these days with how many recipes I test on a weekly basis! I honestly can't tell you how much I loved how simple and easy this dinner was - you really have to try this one!

I think we said to each other several times as we were eating this dinner how much we love pork chops! By far, Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork is our absolute favorite. It's naturally tender and juicy without added steroids, hormones, or artificial ingredients. Plus, Smithfield All Natural Fresh Pork is proudly raised in the USA by Smithfield farm families all over our amazing country. That aspect of this brand, I am VERY proud to support!
