(rest assured, the freezer was delivered - on time - by the good people of Sears. They even moved the file cabinet to make extra room for our beauty. I had this random thought to stage a photo for the blog by putting Scotty in there (with a caption like "Polar Bear!") and then I thought better of it since that would have been weird/dangerous/creepy.)
We had these for dinner tonight. Paired it with a Parmesan cous-cous and steamed peas. I had two happy guys! Well, kind of.
Costco Pork Chops by Kim
2 cups mashed Saltine crackers (about 1/2 a sleeve of crackers)
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese
1 Tbl spoon of Italian seasoning
1/2 Tbl of garlic powder
2 Tbl melted butter
4 Costco pork chops
Heat oven to 425.
Put Saltines in a Ziploc bag. Hand bag to your freakishly strong baby. Watch as he mashes all of your crackers into a fine powder. (in lieu of a toddler, you can also substitute mashing crackers with a rolling pin). When he's done, mix Parmesan, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder into bag and shake. Pour into a flat dish. Melt butter in another flat dish. Sprinkle a dash of salt on the pork chops you plan to eat; wrap the additional Costco pork chops in Saran wrap and label appropriately. (should yield approximately 6 ready-to-freeze pork chops). Dip remaining pork chops in butter and then coat in cracker/cheese mixture. Bake in a foil covered dish for 30-40 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chop. Set oven to "Warm and Bake" when 60 minutes have passed and your husband is still not home from work. Call husband repeatedly. Serve with peas and a healthy side of guilt. Enjoy!
