Taste of Tuesday: Herbed Pork Chops w/ Oven Roasted Garlic Brussels Sprouts

~ Top of the Mornin' to you ~
Are you hungry!? I hope so because today I've got a super delicious and healthy dish that is perfect for the week day; the prep time is only 10 mins! 

1) Preheat the oven (425) and prepare the Brussels sprouts.
2) Bake the Brussels sprouts and set the timer for 40 mins.
3) 20 mins into the Brussels sprouts cooking, start your pork chops; this way everything should finish hot & ready all around the same time!
