An off-the-cuff recipe (aka what's in my pantry):

Pecan encrusted pork chops with cranberry & herb stuffing, steamed cauliflower, and green salad.

Fingers crossed.

I have my dinner prepped....
-pork chop thawed
-breadcrumbs made (made with plain white bread, garlic powder, italian seasoning, salt-n-pepper, diced green onion and a little flour)
-carrots diced (I had some to use up, so they will be glazed--butter, sugar, pinch of nutmeg, salt-n-pepper and garlic powder)

Now, I just have to see what time Mark gets home.

We had pot roast, potatoes, carrots and mushrooms made in the crockpot. I also made some rolls.

I'm making enchiladas with leftover pork chile verde and queso fresco, with a side of sauteed onions, garlic, zucchini and bell peppers.

I also have a container of French onion soup and several ribeyes in the freezer, and salad fixin's in the fridge. Thanks for reminding me...that will be tomorrow night's supper, along with a big baked potato which Kim and I will split. I believe I also have some other nice accoutrements

The steaks are thick, and we'll have enough left to slice into Philly cheese steak sandwiches the next day, and if I bake a couple of of extra potatoes, Kim will slice the into wedges and fry them up in a non-stick pan with a small amount of olive oil. They are wonderful that way. If you want to sprinkle them with salt and pepper, grated cheese, bacon bits or whatever, sprinkle, stir for a few minutes, cover with lid and remove from heat. Remove lid when cheese is melted...2-3 minutes.

You've gotta try sprinkling a tiny pinch of sugar sprinkled over both sides of the steak. It's really good.
