Pirate Party Recipes

Thankfully I was born in June....which means a b-b-q party is always the easy way to go. No fuss no muss...throw some burgers and dogs on the grill and bon appetite. However as we get older...we want to class it up a little bit when we have a party. And since I've decided to go with my Pirates of the Caribbean themed bash, want the food to reflect the theme as well as be no fuss, no muss. Plus...I plan on being in full party mood swillin' me rum, and getting my pirate on.

I came across this recipe on-line tonight, and will alter the serving portions to a larger scale...but think I've found on of the dishes for the b-day party which will be on Saturday, June 11th. Take a look, give it a try...it sounds delish:

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and fry on each side until browned, about 3 minutes per side.
