I am just getting interested in cooking for the first time in my life. My wife and I have been married for seven years and we have two children under six. She has to spend most of her day with them, and doesn't have a lot of time to prepare a meal for us without hearing the words, "Mommy, mommy, mommy, mommy...", at least a hundred times. You get the picture. I prepared a hot bubble bath for her and lit a few candles, with a brand new copy of "Woman's Day", to keep her busy for at least an hour. Then I laid the kids' down for a short nap and headed to the kitchen as excited as child on Christmas morning. I didn't have the mushrooms for this meal, but everything else was there. She is a great wife and mom, with a very stocked and organized pantry. I didn't have to search for a thing. The chops came out crunchy and juicy at the same time. Perfect on the top and bottom. I put the oven on broil for the last minute or so, just to make the top crunchy (learned that from baking pizza). The side dishes I used were broccoli and cheese rice, and whole sweet carrots with a dash of brown sugar. Also I made some slaw from one of my mothers recipes to go with it. She loved the meal and the man. ;)
I thank you for the recipe, but I thank God for my wonderful wife. She deserves this every night!
