Did you know that their is officially a National Sunday Supper month now? An actual National Sunday Supper Day?! Well January kicks it all off and January 10th is officially National Sunday Supper Day. I’m excited for this month for NUMEROUS reasons. Of course one is to share this amazing yet easy Cranberry Mustard Pork Chop Skillet Dinner with all of you but for me it’s about the meaning of Sunday Supper. As many of you know I’m not only a true believer of bringing family around the table at least once a week to sit, create wonderful memories and share delicious food, but I’m also an employee of Sunday Supper. Working for a mission that I truly believe in truly completes my world. Read my post here from when we all celebrated Sunday Suppers Anniversary back in January of 2014. I cried a little when I read it because it made me remember just how far I’ve come in the blogging world and just how many beautiful people I’ve met along the way.
Rewind about six years and you would see dust growing on my crockpot, unused cute little dishes and many receipts to take-out joints. Yes that was my life with my husband before I had children. I never gained my passion for being in the kitchen until I had my daughter. First we cut down on eating out because I decided I wanted to be a SAHM, then once I actually got in the kitchen and made food that my husband and daughter actually liked I realized I was good at something besides cleaning dirty diapers, doing mounds of laundry and pushing a baby carriage. Then I found the Sunday Supper community and I realized their mission was my mission. Gathering my family around the table once a week to even 5-6 nights a week truly became my favorite time of the day.
I chose this Cranberry Mustard Pork Chop Skillet Dinner to share because it was a family favorite. No my kids won’t eat chicken and they pick and choose when they will eat beef, but for some reason they both love pork. I took the kids blueberry picking over the summer and while we were there the cute little farm store was selling homemade sauces and jams. I scooped up some cranberry mustard because I loved the sound of it but you can use a honey mustard in this dish if you can’t find a cranberry mustard. This was one of the easiest dishes to make and nothing beats a dinner you can complete in one pan!
