On my own tonight and too sore to cook so it will be soup or order in. Not that hungry so probably soup!

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

I think I'll make something like the below picture. It's a breaded pork chop cooked with bell pepper and green onion.
They were marinated for a few hours in olive oil, red wine vinegar, garlic powder, salt -n- pepper, and basil. The homemade breadcrumbs
are just white bread crumbs, seasoned with garlic, salt, pepper, italian seasoning. After the pork chops are breaded and browned in a skillet
I put them on a baking sheet in a foil packet. They are topped with bell pepper, green onion and sometimes sliced sweet onion. The baking time
is around 30-45 minutes at 375 F.
Here was Mark's dinner. I did almost the same thing, but I added parmesan cheese
to the top the last 5 minutes of cooking time. On the side were mashed potatoes and corn.
The potatoes had a bit of green onion added.


A little kindness goes a long way.

We had spankopita & spinach (green) couscous (with roasted garlic, sauteed fresh spinach & grilled veggies...green beans, carrots, aspragus & red peppers, all chopped up & mixed in). It was yummy.

Linguine with cilantro pesto, and a mixed green salad.

We had chili tonight. I didn't have any onions (and I LOVE onions), so I had to use onion powder, but it was still good.

I always keep the dehydrated onions on hand. I sometime use them when I have fresh onions and just feel lazy. Around here you can buy them for .88$ to a dollar a container. I also have onion powder, but sometimes you just gotta "see" the onions................
