Rosemary & Garlic Pork Chops with Cranberry Quinoa

Pork chops are a quick and easy weeknight dinner that tastes even better in the fall with homemade cinnamon applesauce to go on top.The rosemary, garlic and cinnamon compliment each other nicely to bring out each flavor. Rather than going with the traditional rice or potatoes, I like to put quinoa with pork chops. To dress the side dish up for fall and make it extra tasty, I make a cranberry version. (This would be a great Thanksgiving side as well!) A side salad finishes off the meal nicely. When all is said and done, you end up with a dinner that looks and tastes fancier than it really is. Stop back Monday for my homemade cinnamon applesauce recipe to really bring this dish together.
