What can I say – I took the wrong package out of the freezer.
As if you’ve never done that…..
I had promised mon mari Oven-Fried Chicken, his very favorite way of having chicken if it can’t be done on the barbecue.
I thawed pork chops instead.
You’ve heard of Chicken-Fried Steak, right?
When you have lemons…..
Normally, I wouldn’t have posted such a simple idea that was, in reality, a screw-up.
I had been expecting dry and tough, but these were the best pork chops I’ve made in ages! They stayed moist and got amazingly tender.
Mon mari was pleased! (And that is our goal in life, after all….)

Mon mari is back at work.
Part of the work is bringing packs of floorboards from the cold barn to the warm hall and stacking them up…. Prior to carrying them upstairs to be used.
It’s half done, actually.
It’s not the same but I like it
Mon mari is pleased, too.
Next – the trim!
