These summer days have been nice, but I decided today I was kind of tired of doing nothing. The farmer came home for lunch and started listing off all these things I could be doing. He then proceeded to tell me that I could do a whole blog on the 100 things to do when you are bored and have nothing to do. I'll save you from the boredom and post a new yummy recipe instead :)
(He told me to go shopping (he never tells me that!) because he was home and wanted to nap. I opted for Dillards to buy a new swimsuit and Target where a old in a hurry man backed into me...thankfully my new car isn't damaged except for a little scraped paint! See if he ever tells me to go shopping again!)
I got this recipe from Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box, where I tend to get a lot of my recipes these days...love a fellow Aggie who can cook! The farmer asked me which Food Network show I had gotten the recipe from that day and I told him I hadn't, but that it had come from a blog. He then informed me that it was one of the better blog recipes I had cooked. Way to go!
He loves onions and I love apples. Perfect!
Pork Chops with Apples and Onions
4 bone in pork chops (I used boneless pork chops)
3 tbs olive oil
2 large onions, sliced
4 sliced and cored apples (I peeled them and then sliced and cored them)
salt and pepper to taste
Heat a large pan over medium high heat. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper to taste. Heat two tablespoons of olive oil and fry the pork chops for about 5 minutes on each side (I did longer) until well cooked and browned.
Set the pork chops aside, reduce the heat to medium low, add the other tablespoon of olive oil and add the onions and apple slices. Cook for about 4 minutes until the onions are slightly soft.
Serve the pork chops with the apple and onion topping.
*There was something about the apples and onions together that was so yummy!
