Adventures in Cooking
new free-time than to make good dinners? I've been making some old favorites of mine, like pork chops with scalloped potatoes and red wine.
If you're looking for a really easy dinner that can easily feed a lot of people (or 3 sailors...), than pork chops are a winner! I mixed bread crumbs with salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. I first dipped the pork chops in egg then covered it in the seasoning mix. Pan fried it for a few minutes, until each side was brown. The baked it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
We were having friends over and dinner was going to take a bit to prepare, so Ben made some really yummy appetizers. Crackers with melted Brie cheese and Pancetta on top. He melted the cheese in oven first before adding the Pancetta. These were wonderful... but don't try to save the leftovers! The Brie cheese gets really hard.
