Sunday Dinner - 8/19/2018

It's Bill Clinton's birthday. He's dropped his fondness for fast food and is now a vegan. I wouldn't go that far, but then again, I've had a much better balanced diet all my life.

Tonight's dinner was steak tips on the grill, baked sweet potatoes, and a green salad. I read somewhere that wine helps reduce cholesterol, so we had some wine as well. Medicinal purposes only.

Brunch was over easy eggs, medium bacon (I hate when bacon shatters when I bite it. It tastes burnt to me. I like my bacon pliable), and toasted bakery seeded rye bread.

Toasted whole wheat with thin slices of year old cheddar, tomatoes from the garden, cucumbers peeled and sliced thin. I wish I could eat this way everyday.

For some unknown reason, I have not NO luck with Pork Chops.

But, I was inspired last night by Dragn and her Mushroom Stuffed Chops.
So I made a trek over to my local green grocer who also has a
wonderful Meat and Seafood case.
Found two nice bone-in sirloin chops
Brined them
and followed this "recipe", but I call it more technique:

Two thing I learned:
1) start temping the meat sooner than recommended
2) ask the butcher in the back to please, pretty please, cut me thicker and more evenly cut chops.
These two were much thinner the farther away from the bone it got.
Don't get me wrong, this was a far cry better than any other Pork Chop
that I've made in my entire married life
But I think I can do better

We had a small bit of salad along side Italian sausage sandwiches. Mozz cheese, sauteed onions and three different colored bell peppers, all topped with marinara sauce... accompanied by a knife and fork. Those sammies got a wee bit sloppy.
