Lemony Pork Chops

Lemony Pork Chops:

I’m in need of a good relaxing weekend before I start next week with my Christmas rush of decorating, shopping, planning, gift giving, blogging and partying. Yes, it’s that special time of year where every weekend is reason to celebrate! To add to the excitement and festivities, it’s also my brother, father and mother’s birthdays and…did I mention the kids start their winter break on the 17th! Never a dual moment at the Kilmer household and I want to plan memorable activities that the kids will enjoy during their break from school. On my list are whale watching, viewing the space shuttle, exploring museums, lots of giggles and hugs, go-carting, roller skating, ice skating, visiting the snow for snow boarding and even a trip to the beach or whatever else they’d like to do. We might even attempt a last minute road trip to Arizona – now that’s a little ambitious, right?!

This weekend I’m enjoying the calm before the madness! During the winter months I’m always ready to eat foods a little bit more hardy so tonight I’m making my simply delicious Lemony Pork Chops. These chops are a huge hit with my clan so I have to make a double batch because everyone wants more. The juice of the lemon keeps the pork chops nice and moist. Try this simple recipe and please send me your comments.

Have a calm weekend, because the crazy holiday rush is coming fast!
