Smothered Pork Chops and Gravy

I had no intentions of cooking on Tuesday. None! Cookies, I’m telling you I was gonna take the day off, Honey! But, my family had other plans in mind. There were pork chops thawing in kitchen. And guess who was expected to cook them!! No rest for poor, B. Coop! You know I love it though. I don’t even eat pork chops. But, this gravy was heavenly. Thick, savory, and comforting. The ideal “Hungry Man Meal”! I served it with rice and green beans. But, creamy, mashed potatoes would be ah-may-zing with this gravy!! I was too tired to make biscuits, but you should! Do as I say, not as I do. haha!
