Change of plans,
GF called from work and requested chili cheese hotdogs and hot wings for Monday Night Football! Go Ravens!! (gotta love that woman).
Makes me wonder how she's going to do it with sore gums though.

I'm getting hungry for some fried pork chops. They are frozen solid (is there any other way?) in a package of four..... I'm a little bummed I decided so late, but haven't entirely scrapped the idea. I think they were frozen with paper inbetween, so maybe I can get them separated and they will thaw faster and not kill me Maybe I'll go take a looksee in the freezer now....

Yuk! I hate nuking food to defrost it. It turns it gray.
Thanks for the suggestion though. I just need to get them separated and they'll be OK on my aluminum defrosting plate.
Hmmm, maybe if I tried banging them on the counter....

I did the waterbath method to defrost a sirloin steak last night. It lost its bright red color. It tasted OK, but I might as well have nuked it.
I had it on my defrosting plate with ice cold water trickling on it... Is there a technique? They don't lose their color if left to thaw on their own at room temp (shhh).
