I think I'll do pork chops tonight, smothered with bell peppers and onions served over egg noodles.

I don't think I'm going to bother cooking anything tonight. Even though the storm ended two days ago, the ice around here is still terrible. Everything that melts to slush during the day is freezing up at night. What's normally a 20 minute commute for DH took him 1.5 hours last night and 2.5 hours this morning! Tonight will be just as bad, if not worse, since it's Friday. I think we'll either heat up leftovers or I'll ask him to stop and grab sandwiches or a pizza on his way home.

LMAO, please ignore YT, his safety pin dinner is NOT what I doing. The premise is that you distract the youth by telling them to bring along the biggest safety pin they can find. They are so busy concentrating on that and what it could be used for that when you present them with an encrypted menu they are a bit thrown for a loop. They are allowed to pick 2 or 3 items per course. If they are wise, they have figured out that "the devils tool" is a fork and they choose that to eat their spaghetti. Otherwise they might end up with a spoon and a napkin for one course and no food for another. Heh heh heh. I'll let you know how messy it gets.

omg Alix, I've given one of those. 12 courses, soup to nuts. We had celery and carrots on the table to use as utensils if you didn't get any with your pick.

I've never seen adults have so much fun! They each got to pick 3 numbers for each course (4 courses in all) and that's what was at their place. You could get a spoon, cake and a piece or meat or soup, a fork and almonds. That party took a long time to organize.

that sounds like fun, alix and hb.

last night i marinated (world harbors fajita marinade) and broiled some free range, organic chicken legs. unfortunately, there wasn't enough for everyone, so i wrapped them up put them in the fridge for lunch today, and we ordered take out from a steak and chops place.

we had bbq chicken, seasoned grilled pork chops, garlic mashed spuds and garlic and butter sauteed stringbeans and broccoli.

hey, wait, this is the friday thread, duh. i thought it was for yesterday.

well, tonight, i'm going to cook a coupla things, but if i time it right, i'll get dw to suggest that i pick up sushi on the way home. mwahahaha.

otherwise, i'm broiling a london broil that i've been marinating overnight in the same world harbors fajita marinade. also, i have some shrimp so i'll make a quick hot sauce for shrimp fra diavolo.
I went down to the demonstration, to get my fair share of abuse.

I'm not sure I have got it, but I suppose I am glad that old Liz and the punks get to live another day....I thought a church youth group going for choking with pins or cannablising those with bad fashion sense was a bit over judgemental!

Hope the youth like it - i am sure they will! (I have to say most youth I know would actually pierce them selves with the pin, I've got to start meeting nicer kids, lol)
