The Other White Meat




So I bought a hog.

Really my dad bought a hog that my mother didn't want and then I bought the meat from my parents at a discounted price, it all worked out in the end.

Now I have more pork in my freezer than I know what to do with.
pork
Pork
PORK
PORK PORK PORK PORK...never mind that's spam.

So far we've tried a shoulder roast, a ham, the bacon, and tonight I experimented with pork chops. We've yet to try the loin roast, the hot Italian sausage, the maple sausage, and the ribs. If you have a favorite pork recipe please share! I think it is a good time to try and attempt homemade gyoza.

Here's the pork chop recipe I came up with today, they came out juicy, tender and flavorful.

Buttermilk Brine Pork Chops

Ingredients:

2 cups Buttermilk
4 T. Salt
2 T. Granulated Sugar
1 tsp. Ground Thyme
4 Pork chops

1 cup French's Crispy Fried Onions
1 cup Seasoned Italian Breadcrumbs
4 T. Bob's Red Mill Bran

1 cup Flour
1/2 tsp. Salt
1/2 tsp. Ground Black Pepper
1/8 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/8 tsp. Onion Salt
1/8 tsp. Paprika

2 T. Butter
2 T. Vegetable Oil

1/2 cup Water

1 Yellow Onion
1 Jonathon Apple (or any other crunchy and tart apple)
1 T. Lemon Juice
2 T. Granulated Sugar
2 T. Brown Sugar
4 T. Butter
4 T. Milk

Whisk together the first 4 ingredients. Place the pork chops in a 1 gallon size Ziploc bag and pour the buttermilk mixture over it. Seal the bag while squeezing as much air out as possible. Refrigerate for 8-12 hours, turning over once.

When you are ready to cook preheat the oven to 375 F.

In a food processor or blender, pulse the next 3 ingredients until you have a fine crumb mixture, pour it into a shallow baking dish. In a separate baking dish sift together the next 6 ingredients. Remove the bag from the fridge and pour the buttermilk into a third baking dish. Dredge the chops in the flour, then dip in the buttermilk, then dredge in the crumbs, set the chops aside on a plate. Discard the leftover dredging ingredients.

Heat the butter and oil in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry the pork chops 2 at a time for about 3 minutes on each side, place in a 9x13 baking dish. Pour the water into the baking dish and cover it tightly with foil. Bake for 20 minutes, then remove foil and bake for another 20 minutes.

While the chops are baking you will need to finely mince the onion and the apple, add them to the drippings in the pan you fried the chops in and pour the lemon juice over, then sprinkle in the sugars and dot with the butter. Cover the pan and cook on medium for about 15 minutes. Remove cover and stir in the milk, cook uncovered for another 15-20 minutes until the sauce thickens.

Remove the chops from the oven and let them cool for about 5-10 minutes then plate them and drizzle the onion/apple sauce over them.

But it is also a sometimes mocking expose of what the old left used to call political infantilism." The film will be shown in German with English subtitles. Cost: Free!

PROOF
Monday, Sep 26 - 7:30PM to 9:30PM 'Proof' by David Auburn, a play presented by USU Theatre Arts Department. After the death of her mathematical genius father, Catherine, who gave up her own study of mathematics to tend to him, claims that she is the author of a mathematical proof found in the attic among his unpublished, mostly incoherent notebooks by Hal, one of his former students. But what 'proof' does Catherine have that she, and not her father, is the author? The elusiveness of genius in general and the difficulty of a mathematical proof in particular here become metaphors for the uncertainties of love, trust, and personal integrity. The play contains strong language. Not recommended for children under the age of 13. Location: Chase Fine Arts Center, Studio Theatre - Room: FAC 224. Open To: USU Students Alumni Faculty Staff and the General Public. Admission Info: $13 general admission, $10 senior and youth, $8 faculty and staff, Free for USU students with ID.

Birthday Party Fun

My niece turned 7 last week and I helped my sister out with the party last Saturday. Holly set up carnival games in her basement for the kids to play while they took turns getting their faces painted. She also had the kids decorate their own individual cupcakes, open presents, and have a dance party.

At one point I counted 14 kids and they all seems to have a good time, but from a grown up's point of view it was exhausting, the level of fun always seems to be directly related to the volume of the noise.

The face painter was very patient, friendly, worked quickly, and had a very large portfolio of designs. Everyone really enjoyed her work. Her name is Mary Monson and she is the face painter at the Cache Valley Gardener's Market in Logan most Saturdays. If you are interested in hiring her for your next party her number is 435-245-3598 http://facepaintingfunbymary.blogspot.com/
