We're having orange-chipotle pork chops with twice-baked potatoes and a green salad.

Do you have a recipe for the chops? Sounds good.

Meeee!Meeee!Meeee!Meeee!


Well I was at the store the other day and was checking out the spice isle and they had Zataraines Creole Sesoning on sale, 8 ounces for 81 cents. Well, I've never used Creole Seasoning before but for that price, I couldn't resist the temptation. In the crockpot I have 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken thighs cut into small strips, I poured a mixture of 1 cup of teriyaki sauce mixed with 1 tablespoon of creole seasoning and 1 tablespoon of cornstarch, on top. I have no idea how it will taste but it smells pretty doggone good in here . I'll make some white rice and a salad to go with it.

I did it to myself.

I've made chili for too long to remember. Today it's chilly and overcast, a chili type of day. I started a big pot this morning. Then came the taste test. It is way too hot-spicy. I put a dollop of sour cream on it to tone it down.

At least I will have a lot of leftovers. I'm going to have to put it on rice or corn chips, then add the cheese, tomatoes and lettuce, maybe even a soothing avocado to make it edible.

Boy, did I mess up!

Well, I just found out I'm not on my own.
I'm going to find some recipe or just throw something together, using Chorizo sausage, sliced bell pepper and spaghetti. I'll probably make a creamy sauce.

I'm giving my sweetie, just spaghetti, plain sauce, spinach salad with honey-mustard dressing... bread-n-butter. His stomach can't handle anything spicy.

I'll post pictures later.
