.......He looked at her bewildered and asked, 'What happened here today?' She again smiled and answered, 'You know every day when you come home from work and you ask me what in the world do I do all day?... ''Yes," was his incredulous reply.. She answered, 'Well, today I didn't do it.'

LOL! Happy Sunday, pallies!

Pork Chops

This recipe seems to be popping up everywhere! Something this  popular  has to  be  good  so  I  thought I'd give it a try. And it was soooooo good !  Even Rodney who's not a big fan of my cooking gave it the thumbs-up!
I added a  little mustard and a spoonful of Ranch dressing to give it some  oomph.  And  since  I  had  a tray  of  button mushrooms in the fridge, I chopped up some and added them to the soup mixture.

Here's the original recipe

6 pork chops
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
2 egg, beaten
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups Italian-style seasoned bread crumbs
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup white wine
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Rinse pork chops, pat dry, and season with garlic powder and seasoning salt to taste. Place the beaten eggs in a small bowl. Dredge the pork chops lightly in flour, dip in the egg, and coat liberally with bread crumbs.
Heat the oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat
Fry the pork chops 5 minutes per side, or until the breading appears well browned. Transfer the chops to a 9×13 inch baking dish, and cover with foil.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. While baking, combine the cream of mushroom soup, milk and white wine in a medium bowl. After the pork chops have baked for an hour, cover them with the soup mixture. Replace foil, and bake for another 30 minutes.

This is possibly the best pork chops I've ever tasted!!

Another Blogging Hiatus

Sorry pallies, for slacking in the blog department. Don't know why but I seem to lack the inspiration or motivation to blog these days. Blame it on the lousy weather we're experiencing - the heat just sucks out whatever energy that's left in you or maybe it's this turning 50 thing - you wake up one day and realize that you don't want to squander away whatever that's left of your mortality though you haven't the faintest idea what you wanna do. But  I missed you, my dear online buddies! I really don't have anything to blog about so I took a couple of pics of Oreo, our pet guinea pig just to get my blog going.
Isn't  she adorable?
It took quite an effort to persuade Josh to stand in front of the camera. It was so much easier when they were kids!
