A bit earlier this month, my good friend Jackie posted a recipe for a watermelon and feta salad.
I was at my desk when I read her post, working through lunch, and all I wanted at that moment was to jump through the screen and eat that salad. I came home that day and flipped through my copy of the Frenchie cookbook, and lo and behold: a watermelon salad.

I have discovered reason number 72 that I suck at being single: I cannot for the life of me figure out how to grocery shop for one person.
Weekly, I find myself carting home my own body weight or more in groceries knowing that, logically, there is no way I will consume it all before the next shopping trip. Which leads to recipes like this, which required me to invite a bunch of people over to help me eat it.
Not like they were complaining. These chops were dang good, though be careful not to overcook since there’s nothing worse than a dry chop. Don’t skip the raisins here, though I hear all of you moaning that raisins ruin everything. They don’t in this — they add a hint of sweetness, the way applesauce would in another classic pork pairing.
