Blackened Pork Chops with Melon Salad

Happy Monday morning to everyone! Well another morning of thunderstorms, which means another 4 a.m. wake up call. Not the way I wanted to start the week, but it is what it is. And now I just spilled my coffee all over the table; reset button please. O.K. all cleaned up and now back to you guys. Like I said last Monday my wife and I usually try to make up for the weekend sins by eating healthy the first part of the week, I actually found this one last night as I was looking through all of my recipes. This one takes about 30 minutes, you can grill or sauté it, I grill it. Then it can be a one or two pan cooking night, fewer dishes are always welcome in our house. Have a great week everyone!!

The Chops
