Jaimie's Roasted Vegetables and Pork Chops

Before I start blabbing about my new found wonderful dinner I want to thank all of you who have visited and left comments and even those who haven't left comments. I love reading the comments. You always make smile. I don't have a real good excuse...it just seems my days go so fast and I don't have much computer time. Friday I had my massage and after that I'm done for the day. I'm so relaxed I just veg. I get lots of them because they help my back. I've also been watching lots more TV than usual. Is everyone watching the Olympics? My favorites are swimming and gymnastics. What do you like best?
Now onto dinner!! This was sooo easy and delicious. I watched Jamie Oliver over the weekend and this is from his latest book (which I don't have). The veggies were roasted to perfection and the pork chops were tender and juicy. I did make a few variations to the recipe. I didn't have any beets so I threw in new potatoes and sweet potatoes. My pork chops weren't the thick cut so I put the sage on one side only.

Here is the recipe. You could throw in any veggies and/or herbs you have around. I sure wish I had bought those beets at the market Saturday. I came close but decided I had enough veggies for the week.
For dessert we had Katherine Hepburn's Brownies. There are several versions out there but I got mine here.

I know shame on me, I couldn't wait I had to try one. But so did my daughter!!

This looks like an absolutely delicious meal! I need to get to cooking! I cannot seem to make a good pork chop. They are never tender enough. My mom used to simmer them for an hour so then the meat would fall off the bone so to speak. I like that but I also like them kind crispie. Yours look sooooo good!

Hello Judy...
How nice of you to come and visit me, Not once, but, Twice!
I Love pork chops, but, normally I serve them with chips, veg. and fried egg... Nice but very boring!
So, seing your "version", was a real eye openner... that there`s so many other way to cook them and serve them with!
Thanks for that!

This looks awesome! And it's so funny you mentioned the fried corn on your last post -- you and Brigette must be on the same wavelength -- she was just telling me about the same thing today!
