here it goes down. down into my belly.
i had a not-so-crazy craving for a bacon-wrapped pork chop over the weekend. i looked at recipes i'd bookmarked, but none of them really grabbed my attention. and so i did something completely out of character - i winged it.
because the idea of wrapping pork in bacon wasn't enough, i thought i'd stuff it with some cheese. not a lot, just a bit of parmesan and mozzarella. weird combo, i know, but it's all i had in the house.
and then because i somehow thought it needed more flavor, i mixed up a quick herbed butter with some dried rosemary and a bit of onion and garlic powder.
the good stuff. no wimpy regular slices o'bacon here.
i slathered the chops in that butter, cooked the bacon a little, wrapped 'em up, and got the oven nice and hot.
now, i had every intention of serving something healthy and green with it - i was going to do a spinach salad with some sauteed mushrooms and hard-boiled egg. um, and maybe some bacon bits too. but as i finished up cooking the bacon and got some eggs out to boil, i noticed that my bags of spinach were, uh, slightly aged.
and so i ended up serving my deliciously meaty chops with a spinach salad, hold the greens:
and as for my experiment, it went over really well. the hub and brother wan both liked it, and even the bean took a few bites. most excellent.
