Pork chops smothered in sauteed onions, with Brussels sprouts on the side, and a salad

Salads and flatbread pizza. I've cleaned out a lot of the random veggies and meats, but still might end up with more leftovers than days to use them up before we leave on vacation.

A couple of slices of left over roast pork shoulder with gravy and sautéed roasted potatoes. Took a very long nap. Woke up with an upset stomach. What the heck is going on. Eating has really become a full time problem.

I made pan-seared pork chops and homemade applesauce with apples from the farmers market, along with mashed potatoes. I made a pan sauce with rice vinegar and Thai sweet chili sauce. It was okay.

Why was the sauce just okay? It sounds like a great idea. The sweet chili sauce would cut the harshness of the vinegar, it seems to me.

I'm not sure - I just didn't enjoy the combination very much. DH liked it, though. Maybe I'll try it again and add some oyster sauce for a more savory note.

Rice vinegar is not harsh, actually; it's milder than distilled white vinegar.

I use the white only for cleaning. Rice vinegar is the only thing I use for food. And sometimes the apple cider if the recipe calls for vinegar.

I grew up on cucumbers in white vinegar as a side dish almost every summer night. It's a family favorite. And I'm a vinegar fiend - I have about 15 kinds.

I like white vinegar for pickling, along with sliced cucumbers. I also use it for cleaning.

Same here, Dawg! I've mentioned many times that my go-to cleaning solution is a spray bottle of 1/3 white vinegar, 1/3 lemon juice and 1/3 water. Non-toxic, cuts grease, kills germs and works on everything!
