Surprise! I'm A Foodie!

For Christmas, Eric's sister got us a huge set of spices for our new kitchen. Of course I had to try them out so last night I made pork chops and fried apples for dinner. This was my first attempt cooking chops, and I've got to say... I was extremely pleased with myself. :)

Mmmm... looking at these photos makes my mouth water all over again!

To make the Chops...
-Put some butter on the bottom of a frying pan.
-Sprinkle Ginger, Salt and Pepper on top of butter.
-Lay down the Chops! (3 Comfortably fit in my pan)
-Sprinkle Ginger, Pepper, and Brown Sugar on top.
-Cut up some onion and a thin slice of lemon and put them on top.
-Cover with a lid... cook on medium/low heat and let brown. 20 min? but keep checking! ;)
-Flip the chops and let brown for a little bit on other side.
-Eat and Enjoy!

To make the Fried Apples...
-Cut one large apple into pieces and put into a buttered pan.
-Cook until softened, but not soft!
-Sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon to taste.
-Put the apples on top of the cooked pork chop.
-So delicious! :)
