- Since I just harvested fresh tomatoes from my horse trough gardening receptacle yesterday, I sliced some of those to serve with the pork chop and rice casserole.
- No pork chop dish is complete without a little applesauce. Pork chops and applesauce. That's sort of a tongue twister along the lines of Sufferin' Succotash!
- A nice summer salad is a tasty compliment with any dinner.
When I was a young girl being raised on Sage Creek Farms, I have fond memories of my sweet mother, Rita, preparing this dish which is a family favorite. A variation of it first appeared in some type of farming magazine in the 1950's; ergo, I have titled my blog post Retro 50's Casserole. I just thought that wording would add a little extra pizzazz. What say you?
Happy Dining & Retroing!
