I am still in the dark ages cooking pork chops the way my mother did - brown, add liquid, cook for an hour. Braising, I guess. The pork back in those long ago days was probably tougher than it is now, and there was always the fear of dreaded trichinosis. I DO cook pork tenderloins only until they are still a little pink inside...I guess I'll have to get brave and cook pork chops the way they should be cooked. Thanks for the menu - it sounds delicious.

Saludos, Karen

Here's a money-saving tip: If you use couscous a lot, you can buy it in 31.7-oz. containers, like this: RiceSelect Original Couscous, 31.7-Ounce Jars (Pack of 4): Amazon.com: Grocery (that's for a 4-pack) for about $6, I think. It's much cheaper per serving, and you can flavor it however you want. I find couscous to be very bland, so I usually use lemon zest and a variety of herbs and spices in it (whatever I'm using in the other parts of the meal), in addition to fresh and dried fruits and veggies, garlic and onions.
The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again. ~ George Miller

My fastest meals are usually when I throw all kinds of things into a pot and make soup. I usually toast bread to go with it.

Also very plain and only takes around 15 mins to do.
