I rarely eat meat, but these thick pork chops, loaded with thyme and rosemary, are ready for the grill.
Tonight, when friends come for dinner, I'll have a special treat !

Oh, it's just a bit too early here for me... but the idea of such a yummy plate for lunch sounds/looks exquisite !
A very inspired photograph dear, very profesionnal POV, great focus. I bring the wine. A bordeaux will suit without contest. ;-)

@Florence: Ah, different hours here...we enjoyed the pork chops for dinner with wine, but unfortunately not a bordeaux. That would have made it a perfect meal. Thanks for stopping by....too bad we're unable to dine together. My husband is French so we would have had a fun bilingual meal. :-)

Raw meat never looked so good! I also appreciated seeing the night-world photography in this series. Changes the meaning, feel, nuance of familiar subjects.
