Weekend Wrap Up.

I spent my long weekend in Ocean City, Maryland.
I was lucky enough to stay right on the beach.

We drank white wine spritzers and beer on the balcony.

We soaked up the sun at every given moment.

And we certainly did not count calories (eek)
while at Bayside Skillet and elsewhere.

Pork Chops with Pineapple Salsa.

As mentioned, I've been cooking a lot recently. I made a bangin' dish the other day that's perfect for the summer time; pork chops with pineapple salsa. The inspiration for this recipe is from Weight Watchers.

1. One can of diced pineapple
2. Half a red onion, diced
3. One jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
4. One lime
5. Cilantro
6. Salt, pepper, allspice, red pepper
7. Pork chops

Combine the pineapple, red onion, jalapeno pepper, cilantro, lime juice, lime zest, salt, pepper, allspice and red pepper together for the salsa. The longer you let the flavors meld the more vibrant the flavors will be.

Use the pineapple juice from the can of pineapple to marinate the pork chops. Salt, pepper and season your pork chops to your liking and grill. Serve with pineapple salsa and rice for a colorful and extremely delicious dinner. You could easily use chicken instead of pork chops, if necessary. I also used some pineapple juice and cilantro in the rice also for a little somethin' somethin'.

Gold Cup.

Andrew and I went to Gold Cup this
year. We, naturally, rocked hats.

The bigger the hat the better!
