Cuban Grilled Pork Chops

Here are some fun photos with my 3Bs! I went with Meg on her first grocery store run with 2 kids on Tuesday, then we headed back to the house, Em came over and we made dinner and watched Pitch Perfect! It was a very fun night. 

Sarah wanted to take a selfie with us!
Sarah was not interested in the movie, she wanted to play princess. Meg is breast feeding while playing dress up, and watching the movie, such a good mom!
 This little man has stolen all of our hearts, he is so sweet!
 This was last Saturday. We went to Laguna for lunch to celebrate Em's birthday!

I have never been much of a pork chop person. These were delicious! Have I mentioned lately that I LOVE my grill?!
