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!

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!
