Dinner for Thurday 4-10?

I got a great deal on pork loin last night. $1.77 a pound !
Just shy of 7 pounds for $11 and some odd cents.
I had then cut the whole thing up in 1/2 inch pieces.

So tonight it's pork chops, garlic mashed potatoes (skin on),
green beans and applesauce.

Going to freeze the rest of the loin for future use.
I see sweet and sour pork in the near future.

Don't you just love a great meat sale??

I'm making Red beans and Rice in the crockpot.... will add some sliced Kielbasa.

I just wish I could remember how I made it last time. I looked at about 5 recipes, made up my own from them, and didn't write it down! Oh Well.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.....

I finished up the sausage meat by cooking more patties and having them with fresh bread and HEAPS of my tomato jam.

Hope to do a bit of cooking on the weekend as the veges looked pretty good today at the shops so I want to use them in something other than just straight veges. Potato and leek soup is first on the agenda and I saw a good recipe for zucchini slice with bacon in it that looked simple which I wouldn't mind giving a try. See how I go though as I also want to make a Winter pudding and more tomato jam. But this is starting to sound more like a few days worth of cooking allowing for the lack of space in my kitchen!! LOL
Too many restaurants, not enough time...

Just got back from several weeks in the states and I'm ready for some home cooking again. Tonight I am making Prime Rib with horseradish sauce and serving it with green beans, salad and red cabbage (a little red wine, apple and cranberries).
