What's For Dinner Tonight?

I usually have an answer to that question. Today I decided to make Randy some pork chops but not just any ole pork chop either. I get the inspiration from most of my recipes just by looking at what ingredients that I have on hand and then create the dish from that. This really seems to work out the best for me and it is interesting to see what things I can come up with.

Gingery Apricot Pork Chops

2 pork chops 1 inch thick
12 ounce jar apricot preserves
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Preheat oven to 350. In a medium size bowl, mix preserves, brown sugar, salt and ginger. Stir until everything is blended well. Coat chops completely on both sides. Arrange chops in a 2 quart baking dish. Bake until pork chops are cooked through.

Great way to prepare pork chops. More impressive that you just check what you have on hand, and figure it out from there.
