Pork Chops with Tomatoes and Pine nuts

Today I finally had some time to rotate and clean out my freezer and came across some pork chops I thought needed to be cooked before they started to get freezer so I thought I would just use up anything that is getting old and what I found was some cherry tomatoes and some pine nuts so I turned it into a really great meal.

To put this meal together I went with Italian flavors to give this meal a little pop using imported olive oil, garlic, oregano, marjoram, and even fresh basil.
