Pork chops with apple and onion, jacket potato, and salad; more berry crisp for dessert. Pork Chops with apple and onion, jacket potato, and salad. More blueberry and raspberry crisp for dessert.

These pork chops had good flavor, though next time I'll use half the onion and apple in the mixture to put over the chops. I promise there is meat under all that vegetable! I wasn't sure about the 1/4 cup salt for an overnight brine, so I pared that down to 2 Tablespoons (table salt), and I'm glad I did; it was still a touch too much, but just a touch. And it was good and moist, as expected.

Jacket potato is one of my favorite dishes - you bake the potato, cut it in half, scoop out the innards, mash that together with whatever yumminess you like (we use herbs and spices and butter {sometimes, depending on the moistness of the potato in question} and cheese), put all that back in the potato shells, and stick it under the broiler for a few minutes to make it all golden and pretty and stuff (not really evident in this one because we were ready to eat). And then it is The Yum!

The crisp was even good cold - Chris decided he prefers it that way. I decided I prefer it hot, just to be awkward. ;-)
