OK, that I rarely eat out at restaurants - unless those restaurants are serving BBQ.
Beef, chicken, fish or vegetarian are my choices. But at home, I always seem to pick up pork chops for variety. Yet, the way I will cook them 90% of the time is BBQ. The only pork chops I purchase are the super thin cut ones. Three reasons: quick stir fry Plum Pork, homemade Char Sui or a ten minute dinner. Tonight I chose the ten minute dinner.
Five thin pork chops, one teaspoon of butter, three tablespoons of BBQ sauce, five minutes on each side in a large pan over high heat on the stove top while I tear the romaine for a quick salad. Yup, just fifteen minutes from walking in the door in my dress and heels from work to sitting down to dinner in my yoga pants. Ahhhh...bliss.
I also came home to two other unique things; a bored teenager and a weekend with no appointments or commitments and sub zero temps. I pulled the teenager's recipe for his favorite cookies (double chocolate with peanut butter filling) handed it to him and said "get to work". He's getting an A in chemistry, he can figure out a cookie recipe. For the weekend? I am going to make monkey bread part two. The dough is homemade, not biscuits from a can. I made this on New Year's Eve, but the balls grew so big when it baked that each took three bites to consume. I am going to try again with miniscule dough balls and proofing overnight in the refrigerator. Pictures of these delicious treats some time over the weekend.
Stay warm my friends!
