Deviled Pork Chops

     Spicy pork chops and leftover potato salad - easy dinner.  Round it out with a quick spinach sauté.

Deviled Pork Chops, Grilled

Total time: 30 minutes
  Pork chops with a kick, marinated and cooked on the barbecue grill.  If you want them hotter, more 'devilish' you could add a drop or 2 of Tabasco or other hot sauce. 

Deviled Pork Chops, Grilled Ingredients:


German Summer Salad                                         Time:  5 minutes
   You can let this warm to room temp, or even heat it for a minute in the micro... Or, serve cold, as I do.



Wilted Spinach with Bacon and Onion

Total time: 15 minutes 
    One of my favorite ways to eat fresh spinach: tossed with bacon and onion and a dash of vinegar.  Be careful not to cook the spinach too long; it quickly goes from just wilting to fully cooked and limp.  You want it to still look like spinach leaves!
