a little country goodness on your table

Ok, ok I know it is the New Year and that means it is time to get all healthy again…and while I agree I have to share this super yummy (maybe not so healthy) recipe.  Trust me you will want to pin this and keep it in your back pocket for a dinner to remember.

It all started with my Godmother, SandyJones

My niece and nephew have the cutest names for my Godparents.  They call my Godfather, Jonesy and my Godmother SandyJones.  Now while her name is Sandy Jones the way they say it is all one name, SandyJones.  It really is just so cute.

The first thing you need to know about SandyJones is that she is an AMAZING cook and anytime we can eat her food we are in.  Just a few days ago, New Years Day actually, we were enjoying some family time together eating pulled pork sandwiches and someone mentioned SandyJones country fried chops.  Immediately my brother asked when we could have them and she said the next day.  He got so excited and I have to tell you I was super excited too!!

Sharing the Love

Each time SandyJones fixes one of our favorites Mary and I always try to look over her shoulder.  We figure we better learn how to make all this yummy food, so one day we can return the favor.  Well this time she let Mary get in on the action and actually make the pork chops.  

The key to this recipe is getting the oil hot enough before you add in the chops and making sure the chops are lightly coated.  If they are battered to much they become more like a chicken fried steak pork chop.  I love that sometimes but these are my favorite pork chops for sure. 

As you can see my niece was a little excited for this dinner as well….trust me it is a favorite with everyone.

Time for some chop love…
