I'm actually a pretty picky eater. I don't like a whole lot of meat, I would rather not eat anything with a bone in it, orange food is out of the question. Surprisingly enough, this meal contained two of my three usual food deal breakers. It was not only a pork chop, but a bone in pork chop. I would have opted for a center cut pork chop, but I know about as much about buying a pork chop as I know about buying a piece of farm land. Which isn't a lot.
The last time I purchased a pork chop, I was in college and I decided to try my hand at frying them. I was working at an adolescent drug and alcohol treatment center; the cook there could really fry a mean pork chop. I almost started a grease fire and from that point on, Emily (my roommate at the time) forbade me from frying. Probably a good move. For several reasons.
So here I find myself, many years later, trying my hand at the ever elusive pork chop. This one was pretty good, very easy to put together. If you are a fan of the pork chop, give it a whirl!

Now for the shameless self promotion....several people (ok, like two) have asked if I sell any of the clothes I make for Alex & Leo. Well, kind of. I mean, I will if you ask me. I've posted pictures on the right side of the blog, all the way towards the bottom, of things that I have made in the past. If there is something you are interested - email me! Let's chat about it.
Have a Cozy Weekend.
