Grilled Pork Chops with Peanut Marinade

I buy a pork loin roast and cut my own “chops”.

It’s less expensive and I can cut them as thick (or thin) as I like.

Lately, however, I have noticed that the pork chops in the supermarket are looking very nice. They are a bit thicker than in the past and don’t always have the long tail that I don’t like.

Sometimes, there even packages of boneless pork chops.

Times change…

If you’re feeling a little devilish: Grilled Pork Chops Diablo

Some friends of ours have a lovely, lavender-lined walkway leading to their door.

Sadly, there are people too afraid of the bees to go past the fragrant flowers.

I love going out and listening to our lavender hum:

When I took this there must have been around 50 big black bumble bees flying in and around the lavender. They are far too busy to sit still for a photo.

I didn’t have any better luck with the hummingbird moth:

At least he paused for a second….

  1. I love pork chops. And I actually like that big long tail. If you’re willing to pick on them, and I love to because I also pick the bones, some of the sweetest meat is found in those big long tails hidden in all that fat. 🙂 Then again, I used to sit at the table when I was a wee child and eat pickled pigs feet with my dad…

    • I never could get into the pigs feet – one can still get them here, not pickled, but braised, at some of the country restaurants. I’ve just never been a fan of fat.
