Caramel-Apple Pork Chops

Tonight, I have writers block. I’ll be honest about it.

What does a girl do? I think – just this once – I will let my husband tell me what to say.

Yes, this is major writer’s block.

In the words of Brett Walbridge: “Its an awesome alternative to what you might make on a standard pork chop night. Its super easy and super worth learning a new recipe for. You’re not actually putting this in your blog though, right?
