Cooking time:   45 minutes for menu           Cooking schedule: see below for instructions

      Classic home cooking, updated: Pork Chops with Creamed cabbage (but no cream and lots of sage) and simple buttered, boiled potatoes.  I like the cabbage right on top of the potatoes, the true, old-fashioned way.

Pork Chops with Creamy Cabbage

Total time: 45 minutes
    This is based on a recipe from the 'American Heritage' cook book I've for years. The cabbage has all the creamy goodness - without the cream. Use the apple juice if you have it - I buy the little 'juice boxes' for kids.
