I coated the pork chops with egg and a bit of seasoned cornmeal and browned them in butter. Then, they went into a greased casserole dish and topped with sliced tomato and cr. of mushroom soup. I'm not sure how it's going to be, but Mark likes pork chops cooked in cream of mushroom soup. On the side.... carrots/celery, garlic mashed potatoes and salad.

I browned a couple of BS chicken breast halves in a CI skillet and finished them in the oven. I made a quesadilla for me. SO topped hers with cheese and salsa.

Here was dinner. The carrots and celery were roasted, by the way. He seems to enjoy that combination of vegies.

Mark said next time not to use the cornmeal and to use regular breadcrumbs, but he said it wasn't bad. It didn't work that magnificent with pork. I didn't have any or the time to run out and get some.... that's why I tried that. It has worked out great on chicken breasts before.

Thanks for the comments about the pictures!
