Easy Kid's Pork Chops Barb's Comment: "This is one of my kid's favorite meals since the rice krispies make the pork chops a bit sweet. It's really quick and fun to do with the kids too!" ingredients: 4 - 6 center cut pork chops 3 cups Rice Krispies 1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper 1 teaspon garlic powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 egg 1 tablespoon milk butter Throw rice krispies, pepper, garlic powder and salt into a zip lock plastic bag. Have the kids crush and mix this up with a rolling pin, while it's in the bag, to form a fine powder. It's OK if some of the rice krispies remain whole. In a small pie dish, scrabble the egg and milk. Dip the pork chops into the egg mixture then throw the pork chops into the bag and have the kids SHAKE until pork chops are well coated with the rice krispies mixture. Put the pork chops into a 9" x 11" pyrex baking dish and put a small pat of butter on top of each pork chop. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours depending upon how thick the pork chops are. Serve with baked potatoes and sauteed green beans. Enjoy - Barb Kids Bestest Ever Spaghetti! Barb's Comment: "The kids all just LOVE this one. Even the neighbor's kids have to come over for dinner when I make this. They think that I am the "best cook" - ha, ha!!!" ingredients: 2 14.5 oz. cans of whole tomatoes 1 stick of butter or margerine 1/2 cup of chopped fresh onion 1 tablespoon freshly ground pepper 3 teaspoons salt 4 to 5 teaspoons of sugar 1 pound of "thin" spaghetti Puree onions so that the are very fine and no lumps. Sautee these in a large fry pan with the butter until lightly golden brown. Puree the tomatoes so that they are very fine and no lumps. Add these to the fry pan with the onions. Add the salt, pepper and sugar. Let this mixture simmer on low for about 30 minutes until it thickens just a bit. In the mean time, cook the thin spaghetti as directed on the back of the package. Drain and add to the fry pan with the tomato sause and mix so spaghetti is well coated. Let this cook for about 5 minutes so that the spaghetti absorbs some of the sauce. Serve with Wonder Bread that has been spread with some butter, sprinkled with a bit of garlic salt and toasted lightly.
