This recipe couldn't have come at a better time... Between my love of pork chops and the 10 pounds of mixed fruit that I have sitting in my kitchen (that included pears) I knew that I would be mixing up this tasty treat! :) Again, very quick to throw together and definitely delicious. My 4 year old gave me a hand in the kitchen this night and it as a lot of fun to have him as my "sous chef". While he didn't do any of the chopping or frying, he loved addign all the ingredients to the pan and getting the table ready!
