This has become my go-to marinade for chops on the grill. Especially because it helps me utilize some of the rosemary I've been growing.
Pork Marinade (30 minutes!)
1/4 cup lemon juice, fresh if possible
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil, or vegetable
3/4 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt (kosher)
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
4-6 Pork chops
In a plastic bag put in the pork chops and cover with the marinade. Refrigerate for 30 minutes but no more than 4 hours. Don’t do this over night or the pork will be inedible.*********
A few nights ago I had the best pasta salad ever. I had to request the recipe and I made a huge batch to go with tonight's dinner and for a couple of lunches this week.
1 bottle of Kroger creamy Italian salad dressing
1 bottle of Wishbone robusto Italian dressing
2 16oz boxes of salad rotini
enough tomatoes, cucumber, broccoli, shredded carrot and shredded cheddar cheese to suit your tastes
Cook your pasta, rinse & drain then mix with all other ingredients.
The key is using both of those particular salad dressings. All of the homemade pasta salads I've attempted before did not turn out nearly as well as this one.
