"OH! That's my favorite!!" Chris exclaims! "Uhm, Chris...I've never made this before."
"OH! I mean mmmmm pork chops, that's my favorite!!!" (Damn he's so easy to please!!!)
Either way, this meal was splendid! The sweetness of the honey was wonderful and not too sweet either, and the mixture of the cloves and cinnamon blended well with it. It was perfect! So, maybe now, Chris can actually say it's his favorite...and mean it!
