Lol about the chair. I couldn't bring myself to sit in my dad's chair today.

I grabbed several nice pork shoulder roasts yesterday, on sale at .79/lb. Just couldn't pass them up at that price. Got up early and started the slow roasting process for 2 of them, carved them up, made gravy from the drippin's, and took a good amount over to my elderly neighbors along with some mashed 'taters.

I saved some pork slices and mashed 'taters for me for dinner tonight, along with some steamed broccoli. Mint chocolate chip ice cream a little later.

Same here, Rock. I feel comfort from the same places my folks felt comfort....new recliner, but in the same place by the big picture window that my folks loved so much.

Bucky...I'm so sorry for your loss, it's sure a tough one. It takes a while.

I'm doing some Italian influenced stuffed green bell peppers, and the SC is making our glorified green salads.

The peppers are done on the half shell after being blistered whole on the stove flame..you know the drill. I left out that step once, and I'll never do that again.
I stuffed the halves with a combo of gr beef, along with both hot and sweet Italian sausage, sliced black olives, mozzarella cubes and seasonings. Topped them with a quick marinara sauce and sprinkled with Parm cheese.

Try this soup: Chickpea and Romaine Soup with Golden Vermicelli It's wonderful on a cold day!

I've made it with romaine, Swiss chard, and spinach. We like the romaine best, but will use any tired greens if they need to go. If you do make it, watch the pasta like a hawk when you brown it. It goes from "almost" to "oops" in the blink of an eye!
