Kid Approved Grilled Dinner

It's summertime and that means lots of meals from the grill! My kids love pork chops on the grill. So Sunday night family dinner, found us with a true Iowa summer meal: pork chops, corn on the cob, cheesy potato casserole (totally not healthy but totally delicious!), and raspberries. Pork chops we added salt and pepper and grilled, we skipped grilling the corn and boiled it, the raspberries were on sale at Hy-Vee so we stocked up for the week, and the casserole is a family favorite but I don't make it often because it's not healthy. I found the recipe in an ad in the Sunday paper years ago (you can also find it online). It is easy to make and takes around 45 minutes to cook.

Deliciousness! Keep this meal in mind next time your family decides to grill. For those of you with younger children who have yet to get their molars in, please keep in mind that grilled pork chops can be chewy and may be a choking hazard to a younger child. We replaced Elizabeth's (1 year old) pork with green beans, or broccoli would be good too because it's full of protein and vitamins.
