When my kids asked what meal I’d like for Mother’s day, I said grilled pork chops. They looked at me a little blankly, because they were hoping I’d say something like frozen pizza and boxed macaroni and cheese. I rolled my eyes at them and said, ” Don’t worry, I’ll make it myself!” They let out breaths of relief and said, “Thanks, Mom, you’re the best! Happy Mother’s Day!” They let me make my own birthday cakes, too. Aren’t they great?
In my mind, there is nothing like marinated, grilled pork chops. This particular marinade came about because my husband and I realized we had 5 open bottles of mustard in our refrigerator. Desperate to use up the two Dijon’s , I created this concoction. It was such a hit that I had to go out and buy more Dijon. We eventually ate the 2 bottles of regular yellow mustard up with hot dogs and hamburgers, so I can proudly say that we only have three open bottles of mustard now. (don’t ask me to give up my Saucy Mama Smoky Garlic mustard; it stays no matter what).
