I made pan fried pork chops with mashed taters and gravy (I used the pork stock!) with green beans.

Someone was late getting home from work so it had time to mellow.

Put 4 huge drumsticks into pineapple marinade for tomorrow:

Crushed pineapple w/juice
Grated ginger
Lt. brown sugar
Lt. soy sauce
Oyster sauce
Sounds good, wonder how it would be with brined pork chops?

Glad to see you're paying attention, Pac.
The Spanish rice reheats nicely in a frying pan with some EVO. Being preoccupied with income tax preparation can tend to stifle culinary creativity.

Now if I had simply said I had chicken 3x in the last week, nobody would notice

I feel your pain, Bill. I hate tax time.

I did this marinade originally with pork chops (not brined). I marinated them all day, removed them and browned, then simmered together with the marinade to cook the chops through and reduce the marinade. They were over the top good.

This time, I've marinated 4 huge drumsticks, and will bake in the oven, marinade and all.

It was torta rustica - italian sausage, spinach, roasted red bell, fontina, eggs, milk, cream - basically a quiche except no pastry crust, just lined with some thin sliced french bread, and roasted some just picked tomatos with basil and olive oil.
