I didn't realize how hard it would be to find a paisley! After 3 stores I finally found some. We ended up getting a green and turquise color. I will post a pic when we get it done. Of course I ended up buying some material for baby A as well. I guess the material I had bought for 3 other dresses for her was not enough! LOL! Oh well, busy hands make a happy heart.
On to today's recipe. We actually had this for dinner last night and I meant to snap a pic, but it disappeared to fast! It is a modification of one I found on Allrecipe.com that was submitted by Marie.
Apple Pork Chops
1 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 apples cored and sliced

Place chops in a 10 by 13 pan. Cover with apple slices. Mix water, brown sugar, mustard, and cloves and pour over chops. Place in oven uncovered for 30-45 minutes. Pour liquid from pan into a small pot, bring to a boil. Make cornstarch slurry with cornstarch and a small amount of water. Add slurry to liquid and stir for about 1 minute or until thickened.

We like to serve this with yellow jasmine rice. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
