Pork Chops with Peaches and Green Beans

Produce Box Vegetables: Peaches, Green Beans, 

The sliced peaches soften and begin to caramelize in some butter, brown sugar, and a dash of cinnamon, while the pork chops bake in the oven. Tender fresh green beans (from our garden!) make their way into the sheet pan pork chop party as well, for the last few minutes of cooking, completing this easy and delicious weeknight dinner.”
