Pineapple Madness

I was craving a little sweetness tonight so instead of a vegetable I decided to go with a fruit with dinner. I haven't had pork chops in a while so pineapple and pork chop sounded great. I just sort of looked in the cupboard and pulled out what looked good.

These pork chops were tasty and had a different after taste to it. Almost a cool, refreshing flavor. I think that it's because of the nutmeg and pineapple but I am not really good with identifying flavor combos/reactions/etc. Let me know what you think.
