More snow and more cooking

I really wanted to take the train to the post office and mail my holiday cards, but I decided against it after beholding this:

So, I stayed in, watched a movie and cooked lunch:

1/2 pound pork chop, in cubes
1-2 ounces merlot wine
2 green onions, the white part, chopped
2 dashes parsley flakes
juice of 1 lemon
salt to taste

Heat skillet at medium heat. Drop in the pork and let it white in the outside. Add the wine and let it bubble. Add the onions and parsley. Cover the skillet and let it cook thoroughly. When it looks done, uncover, add the lemon juice and cook uncovered for another minute or two. Serve immediately. I had it with a couple of hash brown patties with lemon and shredded parmesan.

It is still snowing. I think the post office trip will either wait, or I'll order stamps online..

What movie did you watch? And did the pork taste nice? I'm always on the lookout for decent pork recipes.

I've not even written any cards yet. How lame is that?!

The pork was definitely a success. Soft with just the right amount of crunch (not a melt-in-the-mouth consistency), and the flavors were just right. I'll definitely do it again, but I'll add thyme to see how it goes.

We ended up watching A Christmas Carol in 3D. It was pretty nice, and not too silly for a Disney production.
