Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce

On Friday morning, Luke and I got the keys to our new house on base. We were so incredibly thrilled to finally be in a place where we could unpack our clothes and put the suitcases away for a long while! We've been living in hotels since Luke graduated from TBS in July, so this has  been a long time coming. Living in hotels hasn't been all bad, despite some really, really loud and enthusiastic neighbors during our last week. We learned that we really can get by with very little "stuff" and that we don't need much to be happy, which is sometime easy to forget. So for our first dinner in the new (very empty!) house, I made pork chops with a mushroom sauce. We ate it on the floor because we have no chairs, and we were perfectly happy to do so.

2 lean cut pork chops
salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste
1/4 onion, diced
1/4 lb mushrooms, diced
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 tsp basil
1 tsp thyme
1 tsp flour

Marinate the pork chops with the salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Brown the pork chops slightly on both sides in a skillet over medium heat. Add remaining ingredients and sauté. Combine all of the ingredients and top the pork chops with some of the mixture. Turn the temperature to low and let it cook for about 20-25 minutes or until the pork chops are done. We ate them over brown rice with some snap peas.
