    His cars are parked in the driveway. Pictures of his smiling face hang on the walls. Frogs, a favorite, are littered throughout the home.

    I got this recipe for Pork Chop Casserole out of the Hardin County Cookbook years ago, and it has remained one of my favorite recipes. I love the way the sauerkraut taste seeps into the potatoes. I have made it several times with very lean, boneless pork chops, and while it’s still very good, it’s not nearly as juicy as it is when made with pork chops on the bone.
