Easy Summer Grilling: Pork Chops

I swear I didn't fall off the face of the earth.  I teach and the end of the year this year was brutal. I didn't think I was going to get it all done LOL.  Now that it's over I can find time to do things I enjoy, surf the web, share my finds, read good books, and spend time outside with my boys.  I wanted to share a great easy summer cooking recipe that I found.  If you haven't checked out the pioneer woman's blog lately you need to.  She has become my new Paula Deen. I love her recipes and find she fits my cooking style very well. 
Here is what I made for dinner:  Pork chops with corn on the cob.  I got the thick cut bone in chops and they were out of this world fantastic.  Give it a try and share your thoughts.

On the Hunt for May

Last month I was looking for a new blow dryer and some jean capris.  I found both.

W8Less Ceramic and Tourmaline 2000 Watt Dryer (80.00).  I got his on sale last month and I had a 20% off coupon.  I purchased this based on The Small Things Blog recommendation.  She likes the speed freak by Rusk.  That on was over 100 so I compared them and couldn't tell a difference between these two.  It dries my hair in less than 10 minutes if I am using a round brush and less than 5 minutes if I am just drying it.

American Eagle: Artist Crop in Inky Dark (40.00).  These are similar to the ones I wanted.  I love love love them.  I used my Discover Reward to cash in for these jewels.  They fit great.  Not too low and the length is great for my short legs.  They look great dressed down or up.  I love the color most of all.  I did finally figure out the pair I found I liked.  They are buy Guess.

This month I am looking for a non-fashion item.  My food processor has died.  I am an avid salsa maker and use it weekly and sometimes daily to keep up with my salsa obsession.  I love my Cuisinart one.  I currently have the 7 cup so I may be looking for the upgrade this time.
