Pork Chops with Herbed Blueberry Sauce

July is National Blueberry Month and we are having a Foodie Extravaganza!!
Love spending time in the kitchen and entertaining family and friends?  Me too.  I look for reasons to celebrate and I don't have to look very far.  Every month has loads of food holidays so there is no lack of topics to explore.

This month is National Blueberry Month so I asked some of my friends to join me for a Blueberry Extravaganza.  Let's take a look at what they brought to the party......
Grilled Pork Chops with Herbed Blueberry Sauce

Pork and Fruit are a common dinnertime treat, however, you needn't limit yourself to apples when serving pork.  Although apples are delicious especially Fried Apples or this easy peasy Homemade Apple Sauce.  

But many other fruits lend themselves to wonderful pairings with pork.  I am featuring an herbed blueberry sauce today but a Blueberry BBQ Sauce is also wonderful.  Pineapple is a natural with Ham but this Pineapple Salsa is perfect for any cut of pork.  You can spice up pork with a Pear Chutney or skewer it with Nectarines.

But this post isn't about is about celebrating blueberries!!!  So let's get started with a Blueberry French Toast for breakfast.  We can follow this up with a Grilled Chicken Salad with Blueberry Vinaigrette for lunch.  Dinner will be amazing starting with this Blueberry Thyme Tequila Smash followed by Grilled Mahi Mahi with a Wild Rice Blueberry Pilaf.  

However you choose to celebrate, I hope you have a berry nice time and a bluetiful month.
