I had hoped today would be memorable because of some Republican incumbents being elected out of office without so much as a "don't let the door hit ya" on the way out.
(And yes, that was the number one item on my "Sonny Do" list, Gov. Perdue...)
And hopefully, this will still be the case - although I am see-sawing wildly between feeling hopeful about the midterm elections, and feeling despair...
But I digress - even if the elections don't go my way, today is a happy one. Why?
Because Britney, apparently, is K-Fed up! That's right, divorce papers have been served*. Buh-bye! (Oh, and Kevin, don't let the door hit ya...)
Just so you don't think that this post is solely to announce the news about the implosion of Britney's marriage (Which, sadly, it probably is) I'll tack on the pork chop recipe, which a few of you have been nice enough to ask after. Once again, I am not sure where this came from, as it, too, is scribbled on the back of a piece of scrap paper...
This is so simple - truly done in about 10 minutes. But it tastes like you did a lot more work than that...
Balsamic Honey Pork Chops
4 boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 4 oz each, 3/4 inch thick)
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
Coat a non-stick skillet with cooking spray, then heat pan over medium-high heat.
Add pork chops to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done.
Remove pork chops from pan.
Put the skillet back on the stove, and stir in the vinegar and honey. (Be sure to scrape the pan to loosen any browned bits.)
Bring the mixture to a boil; cook 1 minute or until thick, stirring consistently.
Return chops to pan; turn to coat, then serve.
This sauce is good stuff, so you'll want to serve something with it to sop it all up. As you know, I recommend the grit. Preferably with cheese.
*I know I shouldn't care about this. But when I heard this on the radio in the car this afternoon, I was oddly elated. I do try not to delight too much in the misfortunes of others, really I do. But c'mon - this is K-Fed we're talking about here... I think that schadenfrude is the order of the day...
