Bachelorette and Pork Chops

I spend more time trying to think of a clever title for my blogs than I do actually writing the thing. I end up giving up after about ehh.. a minute, write my actual blog then just come up with something out of frustration. I think mostly because I have no idea what I'm actually going to write about most of the time. It just comes out. See.. like this. This should be fair warning to you that this post will probably actually be a lot about nothing!

One of my best, oldest friends is getting married in 3 weeks! This weekend is her bachelorette party. Of course I am very much looking forward to it. Not only am I excited to celebrate this special time in her life, but selfishly, I am even more excited for a girls night out! I am stressing big time about spending money that we don't really have. Let me rephrase.. there's no really that belongs in that sentence!! We are flat broke!! What's that you say?? Go home early? Nah.. I'll skip the wine and stick with draft beer. I'm a girl who knows how to cut costs. I can do it! But on a serious note, I am nervous about the lack of money and would be looking forward to this much much more if it weren't for that little setback.

I made an amazing set of pork chops for dinner the other night. Since I am still thinking about them *which says a lot.. not the biggest fan of chops* I figured I'd share the recipe. I don't remember where I saw it and don't really remember how it went exactly but it went a little something like this:

2 pork chops
1/2 bottle of terryaki merinade (sp)
1 crushed clove of garlic (it might have been two... use your judgement)
salt and pepper... however much you want to use.

Mix all that in a bowl.
Preheat oven to 350.
Put chops in a baking dish and pour half of the mixture in it. Cook for 15 min.
Flip those bad boys over and pour the rest of the mixture. Cook another 15 minutes.

Easy as that! They were delish. Served it with some fresh green beans and rice. Hub loved it!

I hope everyone has a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!!

Hope the bach. party doesn't interfere with any big football games. Don't think I won't be that tomboyish girl at the bar posted up by the TV watching the game. That's me!
