Poor Nathan is sick with strep for the third time in a month. I had just gotten over it when he started feeling bad. He has stayed home from school for the past two days and I have loved spending some one on one time with him, though I wish he felt better. We have watched t.v., worked on letters, played with modeling clay, and read plenty of books. I'm praying that tomorrow morning he will feel well enough to go to school. (I know he probably wants to be around other five year olds rather than his mom.)
In other news, last night I made a delicious dinner last night and I thought I would share with y'all.
The recipe came out of my mom's Southern Living Cookbook for Two (circa 1982) that I "borrowed" from her.
Easy Pork Chops
2 (1-inch-thick) lean pork chops (I used boneless)
Commercial Italian salad dressing
Salt and Pepper
1/3 cup Italian-seasoned bred crumbs
Brush pork chops generously with salad dressing. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; coat with breadcrumbs. Place pork chops on a rack in a shallow pan. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes or until done. Yield: 2 servings
Mom made this recipe in August of 84 (I was a year old) and gave it a smiley face and a "very good". Twenty-six years later it's still great!
