GFP Day 2 - Grilled Pork Chops With Salads

Found a couple Iowa Chops in the freezer. Great, thick pork chops (the T-bone of pork) that I picked up several months ago when they were on sale for $1.99 a pound at Fareway. It was 72-degrees outside today and it'll be rainy and colder for the next several days, so this will be the last chance to fire up the grill for a little while. Grilled Iowa chops it is! 

I start off by seasoning them with a little salt & pepper. 


Onto the grill they go. Looking good!

 

Done! And played up with some angel-hair pasta salad (leftover pasta from last week's shrimp scampi, sliced onion, cherry tomatoes, a can of mushrooms, Italian seasoning, and some homemade Italian dressing (corn oil, vinegar, garlic)).
 
Also some Greek salad with ingredients from last week's co-op basket (diced up cucumber, onion, and tomatoes with Greek vinegarette and feta cheese). I also sliced up a couple peeled cucumbers and an onion and added a cup of water and a cup of vinegar with a little sweetener added. Love this stuff! And there's plenty to last for lunches during the week. 


Day 2 was delicious, and now there's a little extra space in the freezer!
