January 9 dinner plans

This'll be dinner tonight.
Posted recipe in the chicken section.
It'll get served with basic steamed white rice and English peas and butter.
I have packets of chocolate mousse that may get my attention for dessert.
Costa Rican coffee for us after.
How bout you and your dinner plans?

Tacoes + regular fixings and Spanish rice, with a side of guacomole and salsa. I hope, I'll get home on time to make it.

We're making taco salads with leftover taco meat from Monday night. A side of Spanish rice sounds good - thanks for the idea, Charlie

I just took some pork chops out of the freezer. Not sure what I'll do with them yet.
My car is in 100 pieces all over the garage floor so... I'll have to make do with what I can find in the pantry.

If it helps any I am doing pork chops with mushroom sauce, mashed potatoes, corn, and leftover buns from last night. I am toying between hot apple crisp and ice cream or the Elvis' favourite poundcake (with drizzled berry sauce and whipped cream) for dessert. That is, if everyone is home tonight!

I am just trying to imagine your car in 100 pieces! I hope you labeled them so you know where they go! But I sympathize with you about car troubles. Ours has a headlight problem so all our travelling must be done before dark and nobody can seem to isolate the cause. I feel like a kid with a cerfew again!

watched this on the take home chef yesterday, he is soooo cute.
anyway, he did this with chix and prawns but could also do with pork.
mix together...
cumin/corriander/cardamom/gara masala/tumeric/chili powder and add whole fat yogurt/lemon [very little though so as not to cook the meat of choice] /salt and pepper, stir to make a basting medium. rinse and pat dry the chops and cover them in this mixture. put in frig covered to marinate a minimum of 4 hours up to 24 hours. Bake in 500 until the pork is done on thermometer and a bit black. I think Curtis called it tandoori style.
I just realized if you don't have these ingredients in your pantry, I've just not helped you at all. sorry............
