Threw this together tonight because I had some chops I needed to cook and it was the only thing thawed. I also had a few apples everyone was passing over and I haven't been to the grocery store in over a week. Made a pan of cornbread to go with it and dinner was complete. Hubby and sons loved it and were asking for seconds. Good thing I made dessert...lol
