The potatoes have been replaced by a Caesar salad tonight. Save the potatoes for another day.

We had breaded pork cutlets, black-eyed peas, broccoli, baked sweet potato and iced tea. We were going to have butter pecan cake for dessert but neither one of us had any room. I swear the cutlets doubled in size while they cooked. They didn't seem that big when I removed them from the package.

I just had a ham salad this evening. But earlier in the day I made a marinade of crushed black peppercorns, fennel seeds, garlic, orange zest, fresh rosemary and olive oil. I smothered a pork loin in it and tomorrow (well, later today actually as it is past midnight), I will roast that on a bed of sliced orange and onion. I'll add some redcurrant jam and wine to the cooking juices and make a (hopefully) nice sauce, and that will go with the spotty potato and fennel gratin I have mentioned elsewhere, along with some petit pois.

We have just ordered from a resto we haven't tried before: chicken Madras, lamb vindaloo, vegi jalfrezi, onion bhajis, and it comes with roti. I have some brown basmati cooking right now. I hope it's good.

The vindaloo and the madras were really good. The onion bhajis were terrific and so was the green sauce that came with it. The red sauce was sweet and okay. The vegis were meh. Won't order those again, but we will definitely order from this resto again.

We had Carlsberg and ginger ale shandies with supper.

I was so hungry I couldn't make up my mind. Went through about six decisions and thought I had settled on mac & cheese with bacon. But I REALLY wanted shrimp something. Do I make a mild cheese sauce for the mac & cheese and throw in the shrimp? Do I make white pizza with shrimp? Ended up defrosting and sauteing a bag of FL shrimp in butter/olive oil with garlic, fresh snipped basil from the pot on my window sill, and white wine. Threw in one chopped and seeded/drained roma tomato that had apparently been using lots of sunscreen, and tossed it all into thin whole wheat spaghetti. Paired with a quick salad make faster by chopping the heck out of everything, then tossing. Don't have a taste for anything anymore! Nor is there any room for Katie's butter pecan cake (in case she was gonna offer ).
