Does that look like a good time or what?
Kylene also got in her share of giggles in the toddler bouncy house.
"Mom! You're a genius! How did you know to use scissors?!?"

6 bone-in pork chops cut 3/4 in thick
coarse salt and ground pepper
1 TB EVOO
2 TB butter (real butter vs margarine makes a real difference)
1 large white onion, sliced
2 apples, cored and sliced
1 cup chicken broth
1. Sprinkle chops generously with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat a large skillet over high heat and then swirl in the olive oil. Lay in the chops and don't move them for a few minutes, to assure a good golden sear forms. Turn and brown well on the second side for a total of 10 minutes. Transfer chops to a warm plate.
2. swirl the butter into the pan. Add the onion and apples. Saute' until the onion slices are lightly caramelized and the apples have begun to soften, about 8 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth. Return chops to pan, covering with the onion/apple mixture.
3. Cook until pork it tender (a min to 15, depending on the size of the chops) turning halfway through and covering the chops again with the mixture. If the apple mixture needs a little thickening, transfer chops to a warm plate again and simmer the mixture on high for a few minutes to reduce. Serve chops over rice with a large spoonful of the apple-onion mixture over top.
ahhh, deliciousness. Kylene actually walked around after dinner with a drumstick in her hand taking big bites out of it every once in a while. Jami and Chester said she looked like Pebbles from the Flinstones.
i used this moment of distraction to put Kylene's hair into a pony tail. she looked so darling! when i tried is again, this time in pigtails, yesterday, she screamed like her brain was being sucked out or something. when i finally gave in and took the rubber bands out she rubbed the back of her head and sighed like, "oh that feels better."
