Not very motivated to cook today, so once again it's chicken. It's marinading in chipolte right now, then grilling it, and having some veggie kabobs (mushroom, onions, cherry tomatoes from the garden, canned potatoes).

Don't know yet. Daughter and HH have gone to the county fair (I am over the fair). They will eat some garbage. I probably will too.

Lordy, Mudbug, I've been craving a good corn dog something awful!

I've been trying all day to figure out what to have for supper. I have a cookie sheet full of delicious, dead ripe tomatoes that need to be used tonight, and I think I'm going to roast the in the oven. There's a bag of fresh broccoli in there too, and a couple lbs. of smoked sausage. I'm considering layering the sausage, broccoli and tomatoes in a baking dish, topping with grated parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs and some oregano and baking it.
What do you thing of the combination?

Well. that just sounds awfully good, Connie. I'd say go for it! I have a plateful of plum tomatoes someone gave us but they are not ripe enough yet to surrender to the mercies of oven roasting for anything.

Tonight, we're having ricotta gnocchi with meat sauce, garlic bread and a salad with a little vino.

We're having fried shrimp, homemade fries, fried okra and Paula Deen's sour cream biscuits. Not too healthy, I guess...but we have a "fried" theme going on I'll slice some tomatoes, too!

Here you go Ellen. I found it while going through the Pork archives. Kadesma posted it in January.

Yorkshire pork chops for Texas Rec:

Yorkshire pork chops for Texas Rec:

Texas,
here you go...

1-large apple
3-4 Tab. veggie oil
4- 1-1/2 inch thick pork chops, I use boneless loin
1-c. milk
3-eggs
1-c. flour, a/p
2-tab. melted butter
1/2-tea. salt
warm apple sauce
Preheat oven to 425 peel and core apple, then slice into 4 thick rings. Heat 3 Tab. of the oil in skillet, (use skillet with ovenprook handle ) on moderatley high heat. Quickly brown your apple rings about 1 min on each side, remove from pan. If needed add the last Tab. of oil to pan..Add chops and brown them on each side about 1 min.. Remove from heat and top each chop with an apple ring.Whisk together the milk,eggs,flour,butter,and salttil nice and smooth. Pour batter into the pan with the chops and bake about 25 min. or til golden and puffy. Serve right away from same pan, with warm apple sauce.This is similar to popovers or yorkshire pudding, it should balloon up around the chops. The top will become brown and crisp and the bottom will remain soft and puddinglike inside.

Enjoy
kadesma
