Sunday Supper..8/7/16

Company here for dinner tonight, and everything is ready to go in the oven when they get here.
I made mounds of cornbread dressing with apple/onion/celery in a large flat pan, and topped each mound with a browned thick loin pork chop. Naturally, I brined the chops first. Yummy shallot pork gravy will be poured over the top before it's finished in the oven. Sides are roasted asparagus and cucumber/onion salad.
What's going on at your house?

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

Watching the Olympics, we kind of forgot about lunch. And after seeing GG's golumkis, I had a major jonesin' for cabbage rolls. No such animal around here, so I sent DH off for a takeout Reuben and a gyro. We mixed and matched.

I'll be reverse searing a big thick ribeye (med. rare ) for SO and me. Also a salad and corn on the cob.

Had a NY petite sirloin (not quite sure what that means), but it was only 2.99 / lb, dry brined, grilled, and it sure was tasty. Black bean and corn salad (Cheryl J recipe), which has become a summertime staple.

Tonight I had a couple of guests over and made pizza for the first time in a long time. Two pizzas actually. The first was your standard pepperoni and cheese. The other I topped with homemade wild boar sausage, jalapenos, and mushrooms.

I really wish I had taken a photo, because it came out great. But alas, everyone dug in before I had a chance. Within minutes it looked like a scene out of "Dexter," with blobs of red sauce scattered about. No longer photo worthy. But everyone seemed to enjoy, and that's the important thing.

I'm a forum lurker, and the dinner posts are my favorite on the forum. Since I can only eat so much at a time, I love to read what other people are enjoying for dinner and live vicariously! :)

I had a couple pork chops that had been sitting in my fridge for a while so I made sha cha (Taiwanese "BBQ sauce") smothered pork chops and finished off leftover sautéed veggies and some rice.
