I know whatcha' mean.

I can push old cars around, lift heavy objects with no problem... and then, my back goes out putting on my shoes.

Great looking chili, Joey! Homemade chili is on my menu very soon.

Happy 20th Anniversary to you and SO, Andy.

Those of you with back issues - or a 'hitch in your gitalong' (as my grandma used to say), I feel for you. I had the same thing happen last week - don't know why, I'd been active all week. All I did was get up from the floor from playing a game with my grandson, and the next morning I was sore and it took several days to recover.

So, the pork and sauerkraut is brazing in the oven right now. I have some Angry Orchard Crisp Cider in the braising liquid. Pork and apples are friends.

I'll whip up some cheater mashed potatoes when everything else is ready -- thanks Idahoan.

It turned out great! The pork was moist and fall-apart tender. The pork, cider and kraut played very well together.

It is not a pretty dish -- rather monotone. But, it ate well.

It's surprising how good a beige dinner tastes, cd. I hope your back (and Roch's back, and Cheryl's back all) feel fine. Take solace in a saying of my Mom's: a weak back means a strong mind.

We're still running green plate specials at Loverly's. Tonight's meal was a quick one of hot beef sandwiches, mashed potatoes, and canned corn. No time for real cooking because Loverly took me shopping for my Christmas gift - new shoes. I hope my crabby feet like them.

PS: No, I did not get dancing shoes. Vionic walkers in mauve, to be exact.
