My teenage son actually ate 3 of this pork chops! I still can’t get over how much a skinny teenage boy can eat, but he had missed lunch that day and was apparently starving, lol.

My hubby was very sad that there was only one chop left by the time he came home from work, but honestly, my son thought he was being generous not eating the last one, lol.
