Sunday Funday 4/26/15. What's Goin' on?

I made Tom Kha soup. DH loved it. I couldn't find the shrimp buried in the freezer, but aha!, I found the scallops. So that.

What's up?

Been kind of a lazy day at our house. Had a late breakfast and I spent some time outside spray painting a huge lightweight flower pot so I could use it to put a rose in it. Our soil is one step below a brick, claywise, so anything like roses has to be put in containers.

Knowing I was going to be outside some of the time today, I put a nice piece of beef in the crock-pot, along with oodles of veggies and some beef broth and red wine to make a pot roast. We'll have either mashed taters or rice to sop the gravy, some freshly-made (they're in the oven now) cast iron rolls, iced tea and raspberry buckle to finish. I know there'll be lots of leftovers, which is a good thing.

Headache, Day Four (Five?). Doc took me off a small amount of med. Thinking of starting it up today rather than wait until I call him tomorrow to tell him I'm going back on it.

OK, so much for my pity-me part of the post. Since I felt the best while making supper last night, I think I'll make a pot of an Italian Soup with Meatballs from a recipe I found in "relish.com". Then again, Himself is feeling bad for me so he might rather go get take-out. I won't stop him.

Go for the take-out, CG. I know I don't want to cook with a headache.

I thawed some pork chops and am planning to make homemade applesauce. I think I'll pan-sear the pork chops with maple syrup, cinnamon and cayenne and probably some potatoes diced, seasoned and roasted in the toaster oven.

I had a couple of leftover fried chicken drums from yesterday, and a loaded up salad.

Pancetta wrapped pork tenderloin with a rub of garlic, rosemary, lemon zest. Sides were roasted tri-color baby potatoes and green beans with onions, garlic and stewed tomatoes.

Modified a copycat recipe of Zuppa Toscana soup, delicious!

Corn and bacon waffles topped with butter, sugar free maple syrup, strawberry preserves and sour cream.

Grilled pork chops, fresh steamed green beans, corn on the cob, and applesauce. For dessert, a slice of cheesecake. Yum!

Look, if all this keeps up seeing all your goodies for dinner, I'm going to start making house calls. LOL!
