I am off to the grocery store to purchased pork chops to make my family’s favorite Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops.
A couple of days ago, our local grocery store chain had the mega pork sale that I eagerly await a couple of times a year. I am salivating now, as I think about it, because I can cram my freezer with one-inch thick chops for next to nothing. When I read the flyer ad on Wednesday, I was nearly giddy with excitement (clearly I need to get out more). I planned my schedule for the next day, making certain I factored in some quality time in the meat section.
As I made my way through the aisles, I began to feel a mounting excitement – the thought of pork chops and Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops just waiting for my moment of unbridled kitchen creativity was almost more than I could stand! I am not kidding – my husband thinks I am nuts! I can wax philosophical about my shopping trip, but all you really need to know is that I wiped out every package they had. I am pretty sure I didn’t endear myself to the other customers who were anxiously awaiting their shopping trips . . . but . . . oh well! I bought enough chops to last us for months.
