I have a piece of London broil marinating in Italian dressing made with red-wine vinegar. I think I'll make either baked potatoes or baked fries and a green salad to go with it.

The trouble with eating Italian food is that five or six days later you're hungry again. ~ George Miller

Since the pork roast I thawed was not a pork roast, I had to figure out something else to make and hit a mental brickwall. Thanks to fellow DCers, I came up with a Thai-inspired pork stir-fry. First, I made Snip's curry paste (1/2 batch) to which I added some chopped lemongrass I had in the freezer. I marinated the pork cubes in that for about an hour. Meanwhile, I chopped the green pepper, carrots, onion, and soaked the mushrooms and then chopped them (actually, I started the mushrooms before making Snip's curry paste). Fast forward, I stir-fried the meat, veggies, added some fish sauce, added about 1/4 c pork stock, more red chili flakes, lime zest, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots. Served it over rice noodles with lime wedges, topped with Thai basil, red chili flakes, coconut (I should have thawed it sooner), and pineapple on the side. I was going to mix the pineapple in, but changed my mind. Anyway, it was quite tasty--the meat was very tender and there was just enough heat without it being overpowering. I know what I'm having for lunch tomorrow. Thanks, Snip, for sharing the recipe for curry paste--I'm never buying curry paste again.

I WAS going to do pancakes and sausage for supper but the kids stopped by and we did some wedding stuff. We've now ordered pizza (for him) and Chinese (for her). DH just left to pick up the food. Thankfully, Domino's is almost next door to New China Express (1 store and a driveway between them).
I could give up chocolate but I'm no quitter!

Looks tasty MM
All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

My intentions were pure, I was going to cook. But we went for evening Mass and I talked Himself into ice cream. Headed to a local clam hut and each had a clam strip roll, then an ice cream apiece. Gonna have to start cutting back on junky stuff...tomorrow!

Good looking dinners guys :)
I made pap with chakalaka, some African style spinach and prego steaks.
