Beautiful pics, Rock and Cheryl! You have a lucky GF Rock!

I brined a couple of beautiful thick loin pork chops, complete with the tenderloin (my favorite). It just never ceases to amaze me what a brine does for pork chops. Anyway, I seasoned them with Herbs de Provence and garlic and pan grilled them.

We also had spinach salads and a sides of pesto tortellini and a cream sauce with pancetta and baby peas.

The herbs de Provence really came from there. We bought a neat herb grinder at the Farmer's Market in Nice.

We've both been down with the flu this weekend and so not much food happening. Mostly toast and fluids - orange juice, ginger ale and hot lemon with honey

Hope you get that bug flushed out of your system quickly. Get better soon.

I did a pot of beans and greens: kale softened in the bacon fat from one slice, along with the bits of bacon, cannelloni beans, and the remaining remnant of ham from last week's ham steak with green beans. Himself was still a bit hungry, so he picked at the last bit of turkey breast and finished up the veggies that were roasted with it. Tomorrow i start making new leftovers.

really good looking dinners tonight. and for those that are sick, i totally sympathize.

rock's picture didn't resize, so i got a giant, bigger than life look at the chicken, mashed, and dumplings. and gravy. oh, the gravy.

i had a salad and plain pizza topped with raw onions and pickled jalapenos after cooking, and iced crack tea. (diet peach snapple - i'm addicted to it.)

We went to Teachers Appreciation Night at the theater and had dinner at California Pizza Kitchen with four other couples beforehand. I had a California Cobb salad with Dijon balsamic vinaigrette and DH had a white pizza. The play was very good and the company were a fun group. Nice evening.
