One should be open to change.
I, almost always, buy a boneless pork loin and slice it myself to get thick, boneless pork chops.
I do that because pork chops here are always thin and with the bone – rib chops, not center-cut.
But, sometimes, thinly cut rib chops are exactly what works best.

Braised Honey Mustard Pork Chops
You could use boneless chops for this, but if they are more than 3/8″ (1cm) you might want to increase the braising time by 5 – 10 minutes to get them really tender.

I just saw a headline that Marie Kondo (remember her? The queen of neat?) is tired of being tidy.
It only took the first 10 minutes of watching her on Netflix to get me to that point. That was 4 or 5 years ago and I haven’t heard much about her since – or I just blocked it out.
Seeing her in a headline struck me as rather humorous since I’ve spent the last few days washing our leather furniture…. Something she would probably approve of.
I blame it on mon mari.
He managed to get a cut in his ottoman / foot stool. He bought some glue for repairing leather and we attempted to fix it.
It didn’t work.
A few hours of research, including watching leather repair videos, leather restoration videos, leather care videos, (it’s winter), etc. and I ordered the appropriate ‘kits’ from a furniture repair company.
I decided if I’m going to do something at least I can attempt to do it properly.
I bought our leather furniture (2 easy chairs with foot stools, couch, love seat, and recliner) 25 years ago with the intent of never buying furniture again. I suppose it’s time I gave it a little care.
There are some scratches, a couple of cuts, some wear on the arms, etc., that, according to my research, can all be fixed.
But first – the leather has to be clean.
So I’m washing it – with leather soap, water, a sponge, and a drying towel.
Gosh this is fun!
