grilled chops with peach and red onion relish.
A few thoughts:
1. Why have I been such a pork snob all my life? That’s over 3 decades of snubbing my nose at bacon, prosciutto, carnitas and grilled chops. What a shame.
2. Fruit salsas are rad.
3. Why is my son still reciting the abc’s to himself when I tucked him in 45 minutes ago? Doesn’t he know I’m off the clock?
4. When is 30 Rock’s new season starting and why can’t it be tonight?
5. The fact that this dish has 322 calories per serving and 43 grams of protein pushes it to totally awesome status.
Enjoy this summer dish that’s light on calories and fat, and packed with protein and flavor!
