Battered and deep fried asparagus? That sounds great. I'm going to have to try that.

Used the leftover pork loin and shredded with fork. Made pulled pork sandwiches, with a bit of the sauce on top. Served those on "Big Marty" rolls with a side of sweet potato fries.

I'll do that with a vinaigrette dressing. Carb...hmmm...tired of potatoes but the chicken requires that. The ham could have mac n cheese as a side though.
How about white Mexican rice with that chicken???? Mine is easy sauteed onions,garlic and if pressed some sauteed mushrooms cooked in chix stock and when done load that baby up with butter, salt and pepper.

I had some chicken soup in the freezer, DH asked me for matzo balls. Had some fried chicken in the freezer and made some roasted potatoes. Yogurt for dessert....not too bad for a "pick-up" dinner...LOL

Oh that sounds so good! I'll keep that on hand for another day. I went a totally different direction with dinner tonight. I made a chicken and broccoli lasagna. I'm so full after only one piece!
