Fancy Pork Chops

I guess this is my week to make fancy looking food. For example, the salmon I made yesterday was just fried with a lot of things added to the top. Today, I fried some pork chops and did the same thing. Here is the Rachael Ray recipe:
Pork Chops with Balsamic Strawberry Salad and Pine Nut Orzo
I didn't think my husband would like the orzo because of the spices used, but he loved this meal. He just wants me to get meatier pork chops next time, the ones I used were sliced pretty thin.
I served some creamed corn and bread to make up for the lack of meat lol. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

Dressy Salmon and Potato Cakes

Last night was the first time I have made anything notable in a while, but here it is!
Well-Dressed Salmon
Crispy Mashed Potato Cakes
This is the best salmon recipe I have maybe ever made! The relish and the dressing really add a ton of flavor to the fish.
The potato cakes I found a little mushy, and I added salt to mine. But my husband loved them.
I would have made a picture, but the batteries in my camera are dead :(
So take it from word of mouth, this is worth trying!
