Pork Chops with Tomatoes and Peppers
My mother created delicious dishes based on whatever was in the refrigerator or on the shelf. This recipe is one she tried and kept, and it became our traditional Sunday dinner. She increased the ingredients proportionately to the number of people she invited after church...usually all the aunts, uncles and cousins. -Esther Lux, Lead, South Dakota
