We're taking weeknight meal planning off your plate with a menu filled with fast, fresh, mix-and-match recipes

Recipe: Fried Pork Chops with Peas and PotatoesSmothered or fried, fried then smothered, smothered then topped with something fried—we don't care which combination. Pork chops are quickest way to a Southerner's heart. Especially when served with mashed potatoes, red beans and rice, or Texas toast.
