recipe wedsday : honey garlic porkchops

hello everyone

i found this great recipe on pinterest so last week i thought i would try it turned out better then i thought with a few adjustment to the recipe it was so good my husband wants me to make it again this week. The adjustments i made were i did them in the frying pan instead of grilling with a little water in pan so it made a nice sauce. I also marinated the chops in the sauce before putting them in the frying pan you could have even marinated overnight. You can still baste the chops even when cooking in the frying pan and i used pre minced garlic which is an option instead of mincing the cloves yourself 1 tsp for every 2 cloves.

Honey Garlic Pork Chops


1/4 + 1/8 cup honey
3 tbsp soy sauce
6 cloves garlic, minced
6 pork loin chops, boneless, trimmed of excess fat, 4 oz each


In a shallow dish, whisk together honey, soy sauce and garlic.
Coat chops in mixture.
Reserve left over honey mixture for basting.
Place chops on greased grill over med high heat, close lid and cook. basting 2 times.

Number of Servings: 6

postcards for classroom project

hello everyone

just found out through Facebook about this great project a grade 3/4 class is doing at Henderson elementary school in dauphin , Manitoba. They are currently learning about canadian geography and are trying to get a postcard from every town in this country. I think this is a wonderful idea everyone if you can just send a postcard from your town/city/community it would really help them out just check out the letter their teacher wrote

if everyone can help this class i am sure they all would be so appreciative after all the children are the future and without kids there would be no tomorrow so please everyone pass this along weather by Facebook, twitter, Google + or blog it on your own blogs. i'm sure the children would love to see all thoses postcards.

Book review : prayers of a stranger by Davis bunn

I got this book from book sneeze to do a review this book was a great read it really made me think a lot about life

This book is about a couple Amanda and Chris Vance Amanda who works at the local hospital as an administrative assistant and Chris who works for a electronics company the year before Amanda was pregnant just before Christmas she had a miscarriage both her and Chris were devastated Christmas was a complete mess that year they had went to Chris sisters Claire for Christmas but Amanda seeing all the children was too much for her so in the middle of the night they left Claire was not pleased.

Christmas is coming again the painful memory still there with a baby room never touched a reminder of what could have been. She has two neighbors frank and Emily. Frank volunteers at the hospital and is due to have hip replacement surgery Frank and Emily were supposed to go but with Frank needing surgery he can't go so Emily invites Amanda to go to the holly land with her

 While there they visit the wailing wall they meet a lady name Miriam who is asking to heal a child at the wall so Amanda who was a pediatric nurse before the miscarriage goes to help the child who is small and frail as time goes on she finds out how to help the child they tragedy strikes while away frank falls and breaks his hip and needs surgery so Emily fly's back early while Amanda stays to help the child Amanda days later comes back and feels like a weight has been lifted from her shoulders feeling happier like she was before her miscarriage knowing the lord is there to help her.
this book retails for $12.99 US and is available at most book stores
