I made chicken parmesan. I didn't know I was out of marinara sauce, so I whipped some up using a can of diced tomatoes, tomato paste, olive oil, fresh garlic, onions, Italian seasoning mix. I brought it to a boil and let it simmer an hour. I had never made sauce before. I am sure it would've tasted better if it simmered longer? But it came out alright, I guess.

There are several of Kades recipes I roll out when I am missing her. Love this Pork Chop recipe.

We had cod with a lemon-thyme butter sauce, rice pilaf and chopped spinach.

Great pics Joey and CG! As always, good sounding dinners all around here tonight.

I've seen Kades' recipe for Pork Chops with Onion Gravy many times here, and I don't know why I haven't tried it yet, either. It's on the menu now, it does sound delicious.

jd, your homemade marinara sauce sounds good to me! Especially on the spur of the moment - unfortunately we don't always have the option for long cooking times. I haven't had chicken parm in quite a while....hmmm...may have to get that back on the menu.

Kayelle, I grew up eating my Mom's version of that pork chop dish! Just a few differences (Mom didn't add cream or sugar, and used the cheaper sirloin cutlets) but the one thing I do remember was all of those ONIONS! Who needed a real vegetable when you had a lot of mashed potatoes to load up with that gravy. Sadly, can't eat like I did when I was 8.

Joey, next time you saute mushrooms, could you please make a big bowlful of them for me? Your mushrooms always look so yummy.

Actually, there is nothing wrong with a short simmered sauce. I make them up like that on occasion. Sounds like yours turned out great. A generous splash of red wine makes it just a little richer tasting, too. Sometimes, though, more wine splashes into my glass than into the pan. :

Took a pork butt I'd previously smoked out of the deep freezer on Saturday and put it in the fridge. Finished defrosting on the counter yesterday. So, it was pulled pork, coleslaw and baked beans.
