Whatcha cookin' or eatin', Thursday, August 16th

when i get home this a.m., i'm going to brown the pork sirloin and loin chops with some garlic in evoo, then it's going into the crock pot on low with a bunch of skinned and seeded tomatoes from the garden, while i catch a few z's. when i get up, i'll add onion (browned), zucchini, and onions, and some dried herbs. a few short hours later, in'll go a load of fresh basil, and the plug gets pulled.

ain't nothing like a good garlic-y, basil, garden tomato sauce with fall-off-the-bone pork.

i'm jonesing for a piece of bread, slathered in butter, dipped into the hot sauce so it just starts to melt the butter, then sprinkled with grated locatelli.

the house is gonna smell good today.

so, what's on your menu today?

Yo BT...All I can think about at this hour is Coffee & Chicory! Hot and strong!

The pork dish you describe sounds awesome!

Tonight will be a Cobb Salad, or maybe a P(pancetta)LT with blue cheese. Dh will be late getting home tonight. I want something that can be prepared ahead and then when he gets in we can sit and eat.
I want to watch 'So you think you Dance' tonight. Last night was the final and I would like to see who wins. I think Danny maybe the winner. He really is a great dancer, but I would like Neil to win as I think he has so much talent and has a great personality!!! :)

I have some huge cucumbers from the garden, as well as several tomatoes, so I think I will make tzatziki and pork souvlaki to serve in pita bread with romaine and tomatoes, and some sliced red onion for DH (I don't like raw onions). I will also make caprese salads and pita chips to dip in the tzatziki.

Seems it's pork-chop-a-go-go on DC today! I hereby proclaim that Thursday night is Pork Chop night!

I was planning on doing something similar to Buckytom actually (which is spooky).

Layer of potatoes, olive oil, fresh rosemary from the garden, pork chops on top smother the whole lot in olive oil and a squeeze of lemon. Pop in the oven for an hour or two.

Oh, man, I don't have any chops!

I'm going to try again with T-bone steaks. Made 2 yesterday and they were pretty good. Tasted good but were overdone. But I also made a lovely wine sauce with the pan gunk, red wine and butter. It was fabulous! I think I know what I did wrong with the steak so I'm going to try again tonight to see if I can get it perfect! Also, we'll be having fresh green beans, sliced tomatoes, and a lovely tiramisu I bought from La Madeleine. I'll let you know how the steaks turned out.
