I am in a huge mad dash to finish my latest book and prepare for Stitches West with jury duty smack dab in the middle of both of those dates. As you can imagine, life is pretty crazy around here right now! Last time I was on jury duty I got a week long trial about a voodoo priestess and a seedy motel scam. I hope I get a smaller case this time -- no time for that!
Anyway, in an effort to make a really quick dinner for tonight, using some pork chops I got on sale this week for $1.50/pound, I couldn't find anything interesting in the fridge to marinate them. So, I decided to marinate them in left over ranch dressing. Yep, ranch dressing. I marinated them overnight, set them on the counter to rest and come to room temperature this morning. Fried them on the stove on medium high heat with non stick spray for 3 minutes per side. When all of the chops were browned, I put them in a casserole dish, seasoned with salt and pepper, and put them in a 350 degree oven to finish cooking for 15 more minutes. Yummy. They are so good. Took me such a short period of time and I'm already back to the book projects! Blocking, pattern writing and sizing. Enjoy my free recipe for Super Easy Ranch Pork Chops!
