You must be very hungry, Rock.

Ross, what's for dessert?

I picked up Chinese on the way into work tonight: veggie spring rolls, roast pork yat gaw mein soup, and chicken chow mein.

My son is helping a Chinese exchange student in school because he speaks very little English, so recently he asked what the boy thpught of Chinese food in America. The student, Calvin, replied that it was really good, but nothing like he ever had at home. I'm planning to invite his family over for dinner one night in hopes that they will reciprocate and I can learn how his family cooks the real deal.

They are small, 8 inch pies. It is one batch of dough so may as well use it all. I like to eat it cold the next day

I ended up at Best Buy before they opened this morning, so I hit Trader Joe's across the street for a couple minutes and picked up, among other things, some Tangerine juice and a sourdough baguette.

Then I sat down this evening and ate half the baguette and drank two tall glasses of juice. Now I'm stuffed, so I guess that was supper.

We stopped at a BBQ place while driving through South Carolina. It was good enough. But honestly? We like the ribs from a smokehouse in Sturbridge a lot better.

The pork tenderloin I planned for yesterday, was put off till today.

I sliced it into medallions, seasoned and browned them with S&P and thyme, then set aside to keep warm. In the skillet I cooked sliced onions till golden and added a little brandy. Thin sliced apple and dried cranberries was added along with a mix of a little chicken broth/apple cider vinegar and a pinch of sugar. I finished the pan mixture blending in some butter, and then returned the pork slices to finish cooking. Dang, I love it when my cooking on the fly pans out. It was really delicious served on mashed potatoes.

Leftovers from lunch Sunday - marinated pork chops, green beans, and fresh baked potatoes. Baked potatoes are one thing I can't eat left over.
