Paid two arms and a leg for fresh thyme and rosemary. With some of that minced up I'm making oven roasted "fried" chicken parts sitting on a bed of herbed carrots. There better be drippings cuz I'm hungry for mashed taters and gravy too. Extra chicken will go towards something else later this week.

We have the same product (different manufacturer) and I soak it for several minutes first. It comes out more cooked. Better texture.

If you have Better Than Bullion, you can make gravy using that. I always keep a handful of McCormack's gravy packets. Thy come in handy for supplementing those juices.

I picked up a couple of thick pork loin chops for stuffing. I made a stuffing with breadcrumbs, dried cranberries, walnuts, honey and red wine.

SO liked it.

Met with Mrs. K today to start going through our household things (divorcing and selling the house) and was asked if I wanted to use the grill. Well, I haven't grilled in two months, so I jumped at the opportunity. I went out and got us a couple of huge Duroc bone-in pork chops. So I made that and some sprouts.

She may not miss me, but I think she misses my cooking.

That looks wonderful, Steve! It's nice that you and Mrs. K are able to share a meal together during this transition.

I had dinner outside this afternoon. Crispy fried chicken and a big salad. I was only able to polish off one of the chicky thighs - the other one went into the fridge for tomorrow.

I thought the same thing. We get along fine, for the most part. Our daughter came over, too, so it was almost family like.

Oh, and your meal looks wonderful!

It's nice that things aren't acrimonious for you two, Steve. As long as there wasn't a food fight, it's all good.

We had lasagna at the cousins'. Births, deaths, and everything in between, Himself's family sure does cook!
