Cranberries rice. After a long day of crunching numbers, I needed a little creativity in my life. So I decided to see what I could come up with these wonderful pork chops we get from our wonderful man, Pete at http://www.personalgourmetfoods.com/.
Tonight recipe was created as I was going along. I wanted to play with new flavors, new textures and, well, I wanted something different. So with no recipe in hand, the canvas of what dinner was going to be unraveled before my eyes.
Because of the cranberries it is the perfect side dish for the pork chops.
The sweet tart flavor goes well with the butter.
