I was going to make hamburger soup tonight but Steve came home from the grocery with some beautiful shrimp that was on sale. Since I make it a rule to cook seafood the day it's purchased, I made

Shrimp with Bacon and Cheese Grits
(I'd be happy to post the recipe if anyone is interested)

They're easy and good. Just google "twice bake potatoes." The pork chop recipe is easy. If I don't buy 'em from Green Acres (nice meat market in Simi Valley CA) I just split my chops and stuff 'em with one of the supermarket stuffings, and then cover them with Campbell's golden mushroom soup before baking. The twice baked potatoes need only 20-25 minutes because they got already baked once.

I wish I hadn't ate the photo shoot but I spent all afternoon shooting stuff for eBay, then ran to Simi for supplies for another hobby (which is why I was out there and routed myself to Green Acres) and by the time I got back it was too late to shoot more of my eBay stuff, so I cooked dinner.

It's really cool that my photography career neighbor loaned me high intensity photo shoot lights for a few days. I can post the shots before I ate dinner, but as I said I ate the shoot! :)

It's just that I was really hungry, after a late morning early afternoon photo shoot and then a run out to Simi Valley (15 mi. W of here) for hobby supplies, and then back about dinner time. I really wanted to continue the photo shoot but I was hungry after all that work. I'm shooting stuff I want to sell on eBay...

So now the lights are still up (but off) and my camera is charging, and I guess I'm charging too, my laptop on my lap top and considering lights out (a very good idea--and probably a good time for me to GTB earlier than usual--9 pm here, and a good day for me to not be on DC late). GN!
