megan arrived and we chatted while david did the grill thing. we had a grand old time, talking and laughing as we set the table and got everything ready for eating. the food turned out so well, we even took a picture of it.
and then we ate. and ate. and ate. i probably had a few too many grilled vegetables, but they were so good i couldn't help myself.
at the end of the meal, megan said, "this was delicious. i mean, i'm not a huge fan of pork, but this was really, really good!" zoinks!
i learned two lessons that night. one: listen more closely to your friends when they answer your questions. and two: when you make a pork chop dish for someone who isn't a huge fan of pork, and she gobbles up every last bite, you've got a good marinade!
perhaps you'd like to try it:
1 medium onion, chopped
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
4-6 pork chops
combine above ingredients. pour over four to six pork chops, placed either in a large plastic bag or pan with a cover. marinate four hours or overnight. grill chops anywhere from six to ten minutes on each side, depending on thickness.
