I braised some red cabbage w/onions and apples...mr. callie wanted grilled burgers while watching Oklahoma vs. Florida - so that's what we had!

and a little wine for me, a little beer for him.

Couldn't get too excited so I heated up some pinto bean soup I'd put in the freezer last week.

Tonight I'm going to make my breaded pork chops (supposed to have them last night), glazed carrots (I have a bunch of carrots that I have to use up) and mashed potatoes. I'll come back later with recipes.
This was our dinner that night... I'm kinda late with pictures and didn't really follow a recipe. I ended up using cr. of mushroom soup for a sauce.
