Fried shrimp (flour, egg, flour again) and deep fried. Just a tossed green salad with tomato, cukes and red onion for a side. Maybe a little garlic bread too.

I spent the better part of today making bagels and bemoaning my mixer's passing so forgot all about dinner.

I think I'm going to do something with pork tenderloin. It's what I have defrosted.

You're certainly not alone in that, Rocklobster. Even worse is what they're charging for bottom cuts----you know, what they used to call the "cheap" cuts.

Anyway, have you considered just grinding your own? Around here, chuck roast often goes on sale, whereas burger never does. So, even if you have to first shell out for a meat grinder, you'll come out ahead in the end. And the grinder has other uses as well.
I wonder why, on a weekly basis, one or more large stores features a "better quality" cut of beef for sale. Striploin, ribs roasts and steaks, Sirloin. I rarely see the cheaper cuts go on sale. You can pay as much for bones now as you do for steak on sale. What are they doing with this part of the cow that never warrants a sell off?

Oh, and by the way, I have a grinder and have on occasion done that. I am going to start to keep an eye out for sales of meat and start to do it more often. Just lazy I guess....

Had our main meal at noon (I sleep better if I eat a light supper). PUt two boneless pork chops in my food processor with an egg, dried bread crumbs, celery, onion, garlic, fresh ginger, soy sauce, pepper.

Cooked this in muffin tins for 30 mins (faster than meatloaf). There are 5 left for tomorrow,and I just found out that they're good cold. (ate a half at 3:30PM, while taking this pic)....

made these 8 bran muffins this morn, so that will be supper (with yogurt):
