Hello, My Friend. Hello

Hey. How’s it goin’? It’s been a while, right? Not much has changed. Well, I guess a little has. Quinn is 4 1/2 and oh, did I mention I have a son now? Who’s almost 1 year old!

Yes, little Declan joined our family back in late July of last year. He is a total joy and an amazing addition to our family. He is ALWAYS smiling, totally laid back, and a major mama’s boy. We all are oh so lucky to have him.
With that said, going from one to two kids has kept me a tad busier than before. I had to prioritize and let our family schedule fall into place. Som
e things had to fall to the wayside. As you know, this blog was one of those things.
One year later, I am attempting a comeback. Morning naps may work in my favor once or twice a week to make this happen. I can only try, right?
Summertime is in full swing here in the Queen City. With lots of heat and TONS of rain, it hasn’t been ideal, but I won’t complain. I am grateful for the pool, the swing set, margaritas, and the grill. These summertime essentials make me want to sit in the sun and add to my freckle collection. It also calls my name to get up and cook!
Summer isn’t summer until you have had your healthy dose of pig. How about some pork wrapped in pork? Can it get any more blissful than
that, I ask you? The smell of smokey bacon on the grill cannot be beat.
Especially good when you have eaten salad all week for the diet that only allows a speck of meat on a plate with a crumb of bread and a grape for dessert and I am looking at every piece of sweet food which I don’t usually like anyway like it is the first bit of food I will have had in a week and all I can dream about is a fat burger with lots of cheese and bbq sauce and smokey bacon with a side of ice cream and gummy worms…
I digress.
Anyhow, what a wonderful treat this will be for you and your favorite meal companion.
Bacon Swaddled Pork Chops
2 Center Cut Pork Loin Chops
4 pieces bacon
Lawry’s Seasoned Salt
Cracked Pepper
Season pork chops with seasoned salt and pepper.
Wrap 2 pieces of bacon around each pork chop.
Tuck end of bacon under wrapped bacon to secure.
Place pork chops on grill and cook 5 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees.
