Apple and Bacon Stuffed Pork Chops

Kramer and I have been basically living in front of our fans trying to stay cool and staying outdoors as much as possible because our little apartment definitely doesn’t have the best ventilation. We keep reminding ourselves that it’s worth it, though, because we live in the best city in the entire world! It’s supposed to cool back down into the mid-70s later this week, though, so I’m looking forward to that. I don’t miss the Arizona heat, though, even if it’s a “dry heat”. It’s still much more painful than 85 degrees plus humidity. Before the weather got so hot, I was still able to use my oven to make these delicious stuffed pork chops. Your ingredients.

Salt it generously (it should taste like the sea). Stir in the pasta and cook according to the package directions. Drain (but don’t rinse, or you’ll rinse away starches that will help thicken the sauce) and return to the empty pot. 2 Meanwhile, place a large (12- to 14-inch) sauté pan over high heat for several minutes. When hot, add the bacon and sauté until browned and crispy (lower the heat to medium-high if necessary to prevent scorching), about 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and, using a slotted spoon or spatula, remove the bacon from the pan and drain on paper towels. 3 Pour off the fat from the pan (into a metal can or heatproof cup, not down the drain or you’ll potentially clog your pipes) and return the pan to medium-high heat.
