I been so behind on the various topics I wanted to write about. I experiment all the time and I do make the effort to take pictures but sometimes it just drops from there. I know it is bad but some of my experiments are not as exciting to write about or that I can't seem to find where I stored the pictures. So I have finally cleaned up my IPOD. I do store everything on there, it is my mini hard-drive. Hopefully I will be getting to my older items I wanted to post. If you see a difference in picture quality it was mainly do to my old camera going to my point-n-shoot and finally using a new camera. Oh yeah, I finally got another camera. I love it. I did stick with another Canon. I couldn't help it, I have a nice lens from my other Canon so I was stuck buying another one. So back to the topic, I generally try to make different dinners each night. Mainly, I experiment with the things I have in my pantry and so we won't get bored from them. I found some pork chops in the back of the freezer and marmalade that I meant to use but never did. *I do that alot, I have pounds of semisweet chocolate in my pantry, it is such a bad habit of mine. If you have any suggestions in using my many, many bags I'm open to anything. This is one of those dishes, I pulled out a random zip lock back of meat, not knowing exactly what I'm getting. I was just hoping I was able to find something to make. I was lucky and I found something that was edible.
2 or 3 pork chops
Jar of Marmalade
1 Tbs of Olive Oil
- I seared the pork chops to create a nice crust using the olive oil.
- To finish up the cooking process, I put the pan into the oven at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes.
- 5 minutes before the chops was about done (I used a meat thermometer to determine how well it is cook), I put a dollop of marmalade *it is up to you how much to use.
- I continue to cook the chops until the chops were cook fully and the marmalade became a nice glaze.
Pretty easy huh! I strive for easy for dinners, I get way to impatient to wait for dinner :D
For sides, I just made some oven-baked potatoes and green beans covered and I mean covered in garlic powder. I have this thing with garlic. I love the stuff!
