Take out from El Pollo Loco tonight. We really like their big Tostada salads.

Rounded up two of my kids and went to see my mother in the hospital. Stopped and got some supermarket burger patties and buns and went to my mothers place in the same town and had a bbq before all heading in our own directions.......trying times...

Sorry about your mom, Rock. That's rough.

We had roast rosemary and garlic chicken, steamed baby red potatoes, buttered peas, and biscuits. Strawberry ice cream for dessert.

I didn't cook anything on the new stove I got late this afternoon via my landlord. What a difference 35 years makes in a stove. The old one is from 1979. The oven thermostat was shot, so the oven temps were off by 50F. Check out those fat burner coils! They also took long to get red hot.
I requested coil top burners because I heard that glass tops don't do well with cast iron pans.
P.S. I posted about it in this thread because I didn't want to make a big deal about it with a separate post.

Whoohoo! Congrats on the new stove, Caslon!

Now you MUST use it and tell us what you make!

Our pork tenderloin with cherry sauce was great! Rubbed it with a mix of S and P, cumin, couple pinches of cinnamon, sautéed, then roasted at 425. Took out the roast to rest, then added cherries and sweet onions to pan, baked them for a few, back onto stovetop and added a touch of brown sugar, chicken stock and balsamic vinegar, cooked down to a syrup and served with the roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli. Yummy!
