Pork Chops with Cherry Sauce and Golden Semolina-Quinoa-Spinach Cakes

Wow what a great vacation week! I enjoyed sitting down every morning with my cookbooks and my laptop and trying to figure out what to make for dinner every night. Did I spend more at the store then usual? Yes, but I was on vacation! Whatever I spend at the store it was a lot less then if we ate out every night. Don't get me wrong I love to eat out but why eat out when you can make the same meal at home!

Anyway.... tonight's dinner was found on RealSimple.com. I had bookmarked this awhile ago. The timing was perfect. Cherries were arriving at the store and they were not too expensive! Super fast and easy to prepare, this was a big hit. Loved the sauce, don't usually make this type of meal. But the best part was the Golden Semolina-Quinoa-Spinach Cakes.
I cut this recipe out of Food and Wine. Okay I have to realize that cutting recipes out of magazines is no longer necessary... the Internet has everything! Click here for this amazing recipe! Chris loved this dish. I did not add the egg wash before dipping them in the panko bread crumbs. They were a bit too moist to add the egg wash. I also salted them immediately after removing them from the pan, something Alton Brown recommended on one of his shows.

So the best part of my vacation was...
spending time with this little face!
