There's nothing quite as comforting as chicken noodle soup. That's probably your best choice if you're still feeling yucky. Feel better soon!

Oh, good heavens. Got the carb count on the coconut shrimp, and all hubby can have is 4. Four? Brother. I could have sworn I bought this brand before, but guess not (what can you say, wally-world). So the great rice is about to get some poached chicken breast and broccoli and be a casserole (for those around here, hot dish). The shrimp will be saved for a no-other-starch day so he can use the breading as his carb. hey, I come from a military family -- flexibility is my rule.

I'm waiting for my pork burritos to come out of the oven. I like to toast them after rolling in a flour tortilla.

The pork is the tenderest. I got a Swift pork shoulder and braised it. The instructions said if you want pulled pork, cook longer, until the internal temp reaches 185. It really worked!

The cold is still doing it's thing. Seems everyone is sick around here.

Was thinking Cheerios, but we're out of milk. So Romaine salad with cottage cheese.

nom nom nom nom... i wish i had time to make my pomegranate chipotle sauce to go with it. smokey, sweet, and a little spicy, it goes perfectly with simply roasted pork.
Oh that sounds good, care to share the recipe (for the sauce)? Pomegranate season is coming...I picked up some pomegranate molasses at The Spice House (but I've found a few recipes on the Net to make it and will be giving it a try this year). I've been collecting pomegranate recipes to try--one is a savory rice dish with pomegranate and saffron...

Where's that container of homemade chicken soup in the freezer when you need it! Feel better!

I made an order to our local Dominio's Pizza. My sister is in the hospital in Richmond so after I got off work at 2:15 this afternoon, I made the trip up there (90 min drive) to check on her. Got home at 8 :00pm and was way too tired to cook!

Thanks! I'm hacking a lot less than colleagues.

i'll have to see what kind of notes i have on it. i don't think i ever wrote it down as an actual recipe. good stuff, though.

pomegranate molasses sounds interesting. i sort of reduce pomegranate juice into a syrup to start. molasses might help.
