Adobo Pork Chops

Meal dedication - Mr. John likes the other white meat so this meal is dedicated to him.  I realize most of my recipes are either chicken or pasta so when I found this recipe, and just the sounds of it made me even hungry for it, I had to give it a go.  Since the pork can marinate up to 24 hours, it is something you could make up the night before or even in the morning, come home, fire up the grill, cook about 7-8 minutes each side, microwave your 90 second Uncle Ben's rice and your steamed vegetables in bag and dinner could be on the table in 15 minutes!  Pretty healthy and tasty too!  And my favorite part - not a lot of clean up.

The ingredients

Hot off the grill and ready to eat...

Side dish:  I went to a photography class tonight at Community Ed.  I sat there with my little Canon Point and Shoot camera surrounded in a sea of the "big boys"  I had camera envy.  Hmmm.... could I, should I - only time will tell.... class 2 is next week
