So I decided to get creative. Boiled a pound penne and cooled it off. Mixed half of it with diced fresh tomatoes, thin-sliced onions, cubed fresh mozerella, big handfull of ribboned basil, some evoo, redwine vinegar, salt and pepper and tossed it all togther. I dished up a big bowl and topped it with water-packed tuna.

Not sure what to call it but it was reallly good.

i am giving up on pork chops i think. i pounded a bone less chop and did on the george forman grill. still tough. i think they have just bred out to much of the fat that kept chops juicy. these were a super bargain. no bargain if they are almost en-eatable.
leftovers really did not appeal. so breakfast it is. just have to decide eggs and bacon or french toast. wishy washy today i think. must be the pain pills, no pain but really groggy. gotta talk to dr. about this.
