easy apricot marinade: you'll want to lick your chops

This is not a recipe.
It is too easy to qualify.
It is a simple marinade to spruce up your pork chops 
{or chicken breasts}
before you grill them 
{or whatever you do!}  

You will need:
apricot preserves
dijon mustard -- a staple to have if you like to make your own salad dressings
ground ginger

I got some amazingly thick grill pork chops while perusing our local urban market with the babe the other day:
Combine your ingredients in a small bowl.
I usually taste it and add a little more ginger...
Then you just coat your chops with it, put it in a sealed container, let it marinate in the fridge for an hour or so, then grill 'em up!
I made some rosemary goat cheese mashed potatoes to go with mine...
which basically just means I add 5 oz of goat cheese and some chopped rosemary before I start mashing.
I would add goat cheese to anything if I could.
Enjoy your chops!  Eat them, don't really lick them.
