My friend C Laz recently raved about a pork chop dish she saw Giada De Laurentiis make. She said it was super simple and very tasty. Since we had some pork chops in the freezer, I decided to try the Pork Chops alla Pizzaiola:
.. which turned out to be quite tasty on top of creamy mashed potatoes. Even though my chops were boneless, they took a lot longer than the 3 minutes per side the recipe said, which meant dinner took much longer than I had anticipated. I hate cooking when my show is on in the other room; all that running back and forth so I don't miss anything really gets old after awhile. I think I need to start cooking much simpler meals on Tuesdays.
I served the chops with a salad:
... made with red leaf lettuce, carrots, cucumber, scallions, thinly sliced red onion and a little grated cheese.
