What's in your dish, Trish? Dinner thread for Thur, 9/22

If all goes as planned I'll be in my new house by this time next week. With that in mind, I've been trying to clean things out of the freezer. Rummaging around last night, I discovered a package of pork chops I had bought last year. Ok, about a year and a half ago. They needed to be used.

So I looked in the fridge and pantry to see what I had that might go with it. Napa cabbage, farmers market peppers, and a can of bean sprouts (2g carbs for the entire can!) were added to make this Szechuan Pepper Pork dish. The sauce is made from a base of Chinese black vinegar, Szechuan pepper, and a few good splashes of soy sauce. Since I don't eat rice, I find that chopped, quick sauteed cabbage makes a nice substitute and adds some texture to meals like this.

It's cool and rainy here. Perfect night for meatloaf with mashed taters and green beans.

I did the same thing when I moved, I would find things that were sitting way back in the fridge and I'd be, "hey, this is from 2012. this could be dinner!"

Dinner tonight, I'm going to attempt Jamie Oliver's Chicken In Milk.
Chicken in Milk | Chicken Recipes | Jamie Oliver Recipes

It sounds absolutely putrid to me, but someone on Reddit swears it is the best chicken dish ever. So I'm going to give it a try. Who knows? Maybe I'll love it.

Steve, that looks delicious - and especially for an impromptu throw together meal. Yum.

*****************

Not sure yet what's for dinner here. I was going to make a bean and ham soup, but didn't get the beans soaking in time. I guess that'll be for tomorrow's dinner - I'll probably just have a tuna melt or omelet for this evening. Something easy.
