Because of our crazy schedule, and also because it’s impossible to all sit down and eat together when you have a not-quite-two-year-old, I’ve been rotating a lot of the same dishes and getting pretty bored with them. So last night I decided to grill pork chops. Now, I have never particularly liked any kind of pork except for sausage (and occasionaly ribs). Pork roast? Bleh. Pork tenderloin? If I have to. Pork chops? Pass. However, once or twice a year something compels me to buy a pacakge of chops at the grocery store. It then sits in my freezer until I either have to make them or else throw them away — something I hate to do.
Such was my dilemma yesterday. So, I decided to thaw ’em out, season ’em up, slather on some BBQ sauce and be done with it. And I have to say — pork chops have to be the most unsatisfying dinner ever. So if you see me at the grocery store picking up a package of chops, just stop me right then and there. I probably would have been happier eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
On that note, I’m going to try to get into menu planning again. There’s a popular weekly meme called Menu Plan Monday, so I’m going to peruse some of those blogs and get some ideas and try to get on track next week. It’ll be fun to try out some new recipes, too. (As long as they’re not pork chops, of course!)
