Most of these places have petting zoos and barbecue contests as well. I'll cover that more during the fall.
As for pork chops, remember the slogan "The Other White Meat?" Well, one of my favorite associations has changed slogans. The National Pork Board has officially retired the white meat slogan into their past. What they call their "Heritage." I love it, that slogan and all of the great recipes and cooking tips the Pork Board has offered up has become part of many peoples heritage, at least on the cooking side.
Now the slogan, or theme, of the National Pork Board is Pork - Be Inspired! I think it fits, and the site is packed with great information, recipes and ideas. If you have a moment, check out my culinary pork buddies atwww.porkbeinspired.com
For now, enjoy some great grilling with my very own Honey Apple Butter Pork Chops. Grill them up, serve them up and enjoy the time with family and friends.
Suggestion - If you don't have any apple butter try using a marmalade of your choice!
