Today I made a simple meal packed with lots of flavor. The simple part is the pork chops, which I seasoned with salt and pepper and fried them in olive oil. The new potatoes were a little more involved. I quartered the potatoes, cut fresh green onions, fresh chives, and fresh shitake mushrooms. I combined that with salt, pepper, thyme and 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a plastic bag. The bag made it easy to coat everything and mix it up. I then placed the contents of the bag into an ungreased baking dish and placed it into a preheated 450 degree oven uncovered for 35 minutes.
