Pork Chops with Apples and Cranberries
Combine apple juice, chicken broth, brown sugar, cornstarch, dried sage and pepper in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Dredge each pork chop with flour. Spray a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Heat 3 t olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until browned and no longer pink in the center. Remove the pork chops and keep warm. Add 1 tsp olive oil to the pan. Add onion, cover, reduce heat and cook 5 minutes or until the onion is golden brown, stirring frequently. Return the pork chops to the pan, add juice mixture, apples and cranberries. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and cook 3 minutes or until cranberries pop, apples are tender and the pork is done, stirring occasionally. Garnish with fresh sage leaves, if desired. Serve with whole wheat toast or a small whole wheat roll.
Microwaved Sweet Potatoes
Wash sweet potatoes. Do not peel. Puncture a few times with a fork. Place on paper towel. Cook on high for about 12 to 16 minutes, depending on the size. Turn over potatoes halfway through cooking. Let stand 5 minutes after cooking to soften. Very carefully cut a slit in the top of each sweet potato and sprinkle with cinnamon.
In a small bowl, combine the 1/4 cup of green onion, grated orange rind, orange juice and vinegar. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in oil with a whisk.
In a salad bowl combine the salad greens, cucumber and 2 green onions. Remove 2 cups to a small container for your lunch tomorrow and refrigerate. To the remaining salad, add the orange. Whisk the salad dressing again and pour over the salad, tossing well.
Note: For your lunch salad the next day, when ready to eat, add 3 oz. chilled, drained tuna, a slice apple and a small amount of low fat salad dressing. Serve with whole wheat bread or whole wheat crackers.
