Think Lemons

One of the shows my boyfriend and I watch
all the time is. Diner's Dive-ins and Drives.
The food just looks so YUMM!
One of the stops has a baked lemonade pork chops on the menu.

Dinner last night was that dish.
The pork chops baked for an hour. 
And the house was starting to smell really good by then. 
I fixed Asparagus for the side.
