I'm boiling a ham in cola and serving it with small baked potatoes (have to be small in any case, no 'meal' sized ones available because of the poor weather), corn fritters, and slightly bizarrely, asparagus as that's what we have that's green.
It all sounds wonderful Lulu, have a wonderful night

I'm making TNT Pork with Mushroom Herb Sauce with Hasselback potatoes and a green salad, probably with some of the blue cheese dressing I made last Saturday. Almond cake (didn't leave out the butter this time) for dessert.

Everyone's dinner sounds wonderful. We had pizza that I picked up on the way home at Papa Murphy's. it was pretty good. I actually ate a little piece. I do have a carb or two now and then.

It turned out really good (or maybe it's just good after two Margaritas ). I made lots of gravy. I'll probably have some on toast tomorrow for breakfast. This time I put very thin slices of garlic between the slices on the Hasselback potatoes. I wanted to be sure they were open. The herb butter had onion powder and marjoram. That turned out really yummy. I baked them at 350F for about an hour and they had yummy, crispy bits.




It was a meal worthy of celebrating the start of the weekend.

Just don't eat the edge that doesn't have any stuff on it.

it's a stressful but delicious multi-cultural experience all in one.

whatever the light of my life, my moon and stars wants, she will get.
That cracked me up BT! You should thank your lucky stars she's the kind of girl you deserve. Would you rather wear a tuxedo for her birthday dinner?
