Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops With Jalapeno

IMG_1437IMG_1438So….I painted a little this morning while it was still cool outside.  I opened the windows on my art room to get a little breeze going and turned on some zen music-always gets me in the mood to put brush to canvas. The task today was to continue with some painting that I had started a few months ago.  Sometimes it helps to walk away and come back at a later time. I absolutely love painting in grayscale or any monochromatic style AND ANYTHING funky.  The guitar did not need much more work but the boot seemed as if I would never finished….but today I did.  The weather says there is a possibility of rain tomorrow so maybe I can start a new painting.

We did a few minutes of fishing this evening and both caught fish.  How exciting.-we are one step closer to catching THE BIG ONE.

For dinner tonight I went on a whim and made bacon wrapped pork chops.  This is the first time I have tried cooking chops this way and it turned out great.  They are pretty too.

Pork Chops

  • 6 boneless, thin cut pork chops
  • 1/2 small white onion, sliced
  • 2 jalapeno, sliced
  • 2 pieces string cheese, cut lengthwise and in half
  • 3 slices bacon, cut in half
  • garlic pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Pound the pork chops with a meat tenderizer.  Sprinkle with garlic pepper.  Place 2-3 onion slices, 2 jalapeno slices and 1 piece of string cheese on pork chop and roll.  Wrap bacon around roll-up and secure with a toothpick.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes then turn up to broil for 3-5 minutes to crisp bacon.
