Good Afternoon everyone and TGIF,

Busy morning with lots of errands to run. I'll be picking up my youngest son from school soon. My middle son has track practice after school and won't be home until 7:00.

Dinner tonight will be simple, leftover soup from yesterday and grilled cheese sandwiches.

HAGD!

I'm sorry you are having more problems with your leg. I hate when you are not feeling well.

I think we are having some kind of Asian pork loin for supper. We are eating at our friends' house. The only thing I know for sure is that there will be cheesecake for dessert, since I have it in the oven right now.

Oh no LP, just when we were hoping you'd seen the last of that place.

Enjoy dinner with your sister and Dad.

It is going to be left overs here. There is ham steak, pork chops and gravy, scalloped potatoes, and some bbq pork. Hmmm did REALLY cook that much pig this week???

We had leftovers. Yesterday I made a mexican lasagna. Used real tomatoes and made a small batch of thick tomatoe sauce so that was used in the mexican lasagna along with ground hamburger, spices, zucchini, corn "shucked from corn on the cobs" and a few other things. Layers of corn tortillas, meat/sauce mix and cheese. Topped with sour cream when serving.

Just finished a good dinner.

I bought some beautiful large fresh scallops at Costco today, so I seared them in olive oil and butter and set them aside to keep warm. In the pan with the good drippings, I sauted some white onion and garlic, deglazed with Vermouth, added a bottle of clam juice, some fresh lemon zest, Italian parsley, and some red pepper flakes.. I added a bit of the pasta water, and let it cook for a few minutes, and then added my cooked linguini to the pan, to absorb some of the sauce. I topped the plates of pasta with the beautiful scallops, shaved fresh Parmesan and parsley.
Green salad and garlic toast were the sides.

Thanks, Dave, we sure did enjoy it! My sister brought s/s boneless pork Dad's Favourite, mushroom chow mien (my favourite), beef & broccoli (sister's favourite), chicken fried rice, spring rolls and won ton soup from our favourite restaurant which happens to be half way between our place and hers.

Our football team (Saskatchewan Roughriders) won, but they were trying pretty hard not too

Your leftover meal sounds great!

I'm finally going to make Selkie's Apricot Glazed chicken. I was too worn out from shopping last night so I polished off some delicious L/O Spanish rice with beef and some L/O (leftover) sauted squash.

I did pick up a pretty boneless pork loin half. I'll freeze half of that and prep the other half to cook low and slow all day tomorrow, marinating using Kayelle's dry rub today, and Caslon's suggesting of water with Liquid Smoke in the pan tomorrow. Mmmm I can smell it already.
