If your DH like Coach purses, that's a nice gift. I bought three gently used ones on eBay years ago. They're nice, but I decided I'm more of a Stone Mountain kinda gal. Fully stocked, the SM one still weighs less than most empty Coaches. Still buttery soft leather, though. Maybe a Valentine's gift? Hmm?

I made a pot of chicken stew for sometime this weekend, but I made pork tenderloins forClick image for larger version

ID:	32663 tonight. One with Herb de Provence seasoning, the other with Jamaican jerk spices. Sides were buttered noodles, roasted cauliflower, steamed broccoli, and asparagus. Not a fan of Loverly's green plates, but that's all she has.

Lovely looking and sounding dinners! I'm inspired by several of them.

I'm just now getting around to feeling better after a few days of my back being out of whack. No fun at all. I don't know what happened, but glad it's a little better and I was good enough to shop for the Christmas menu today.

Still wasn't much interested in cooking, so I ordered Chinese delivery. It was a little earlier than their delivery time frame, but they made an exception for me.

Sorry to hear about your back Cheryl. Lower back? Chronic? I’ve had two surgeries, but before I had them, a very wise chiropractor introduced me to the McKenzie protocol, a series of very simple exercises designed to relieve lower back pain. They really helped me, still do. There’s a bunch of info on the web; here’s a link to my google search. Hope you get better soon!

Take out Chinese sounds sooo good right now! Haven’t had it in dog’s years!

Thank you Joel....no, not chronic. I think I just got a hitch in my gitalong, as my Grandma used to say. Upper back and neck. Tyler and I had a picnic dinner on a blanket the other night, and I felt a twinge when I got up from the floor. It's better now, but I'll check out the link you posted.

T bone steak with garlic sauce. Corn new potatoes from garden. Mixed vege done in microwave. Best meal I've had in a long time.

Here it is. I really don’t know what to call it! Mom would probably have called it “thoup” because it’s got more stuff in it than liquid. It’s very tasty, a bit sweet, with a tang from the bbq sauce, some cider vinegar, and some Worcestershire sauce. Even though it cooked a long time, the veggies didn’t get mushy, just soft, and oh my, the celery was so sweet and delish! Very filling, too. I made enough so we’ll be eating it all week!

I wonder if there is a Guinness Book of World records category for nuked broc. I'm thinking you have nuked more broccoli than anyone on the planet.

That should be perfect when you really want to feel pretty.
