I put a pot roast in the crock pot this morning, along with carrots, onion and potatoes. It's getting a tiny bit cooler as we approach December - the humidity is going away and the temps are just in the mid-high 80s. Makes it more fun to cook (and EAT!)

DH had a toothache yesterday, so he had soup and I had grilled cheese. So tonight I'll make the pork chops, herbed spaghetti squash and green salad we didn't have yesterday.

Roast pork loin with red peppers, tomato, potato, carrot, onion, gravy...

Very tasty.

I seasoned the pork with cajun spices, added the red pepper relish the veggies and tossed diced tomatoes over the top...

With the drippings in the pan I made a wonderful creamy gravy.


and as served

I said earlier that I had taken some cooked chicken out of the freezer and I was going to turn it into nachos, well if I have one gripe about those vacuum sealers, it's that you don't know how much meat you actually have! Things started getting so high in my smaller casserole dish after adding the chicken that I had to transfer everything into a lasagna pan. This is definitely not a one sitting snack.... I hope the chips that are layered on the bottom reheat OK.
I seem to remember now that I was saving that chicken for chicken n biscuits. That must be why I saved so much in one bag. It didn't look like that much all frozen in the handi-vac This is a ridiculous amount of food.

I'm serious, Suzi. These nachos are made with the stuff baked on top of the chips rather than like a dip. I feel like if I don't eat it all it will go to waste
I'll put a couple mugs in the freezer

lol, sorry to disappoint....
I ate a LOT more than I expected to. I was munching nachos, watching the Colts catch up to and pass Pgh, and reading through a knife forum. And the nachos were closeby The leftovers will easily fit on a saucer, and they will need more chips, as I noticed the chips starting to get soggy. They were still good though, as was the chicken. I used some of that Spanish smoked paprika on the chicken as I layered it on.
I'll still toss a couple glasses in the freezer though. Maybe Joe can whip up a pizza crust for Kathe...
