Pork Chops and Apples

Today was such a great day. I really felt like I got a lot accomplished. I feel like I had energy enough to clean, cook and be super mom. I haven't felt like this in a while but I did today and now I am completely exhausted. I did everything on my list except clean on the top of the fridge and that is because Brandon didn't want me standing on a chair. I made Pork Chops and Apples. They were so good.

This recipe serves 2 -
1 Medium apple
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
1/4 TSP ground cinnamon
2 Pork Rib Chops
Cooking spray

1 - Heat over to 350
2 - Cut the apple into fourths and remove the seeds. Cut each fourth into 3 or 4 wedges.  Place apple wedges in the 1/2 quart casserole dish. Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.
3 - Cut and discard the fat from the pork chops. Spray skillet with cooking spray, and heat over medium for 1 to 2 minutes. Cook pork chops in skillet until both sides are light brown.
4- Place pork chops in a single layer on the apple wedges. Cover dish with a lid or foil. Bake for 45 minutes or until pork is slightly pink when you cut into the center and apples are tender.

OK so the meat was tender and terrific but I don't recommend eating the apples. They tasted horrible in my families opinion but they worked wonders for the meat.

I then also made fudge today!! YUMMY!! It was terrific...

This makes 16 squares
 2/3 cup of evaparated milk
1 1/4 cup of sugar
1/8 teaspoon of salt
2 cups of semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon of hazelnut liqour
- 1/2 cup halved hazlenuts

1 - Grease an 9 inch square cake pan
2- Combine the evaporated milk, sugar and salt in a heavy saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat stirring constantly. Simmer gently stirring about 5 minutes.
3- Remove from heat and add hazlenuts, chocolate chips and liquor. Stir until the chocolate is completely melted.
4- Quickly pour the fudge mixture into the prepared pan and spread it out evenly and let cool
5- When the fudge has set cut into 1 inch squares and store in air-tight container and separate by wax paper

We didn't to the liquor or hazlenuts and it tasted to die for!!
