Smothered Pork Chops

I tried my hand at smothered pork chops. I was never able to create gravy the way I wanted to. It was always too thick or too watery but I think I finally got it down! Check out the video for step-by-step directions. I eyeball a lot of my seasonings but I have added measurements for anyone that wants them.

Often times we find ourselves hoping to following our minds rather than our hearts and we soon realize it's not the case. we get so caught up in our feelings and allow the stream of tears to sway us into making short term decisions that has long term effects. Sometimes we need to take a step back from ourselves and look at things from the outside. Ask ourselves is it worth it? Will I be ok with my decision tomorrow? Once we decide that it is worth losing we need to breathe in release and let go! No looking back, no regrets, just high hopes for the future, less frowns and more smiles.
