Katie, with what are you stuffing the chops?

I'm making a variation of Thai-style pork in sweet chili sauce from the Steamy Kitchen cookbook. I don't have chicken but I have pork loin, so will sub that. The recipe also includes bell peppers, onions, fish sauce and soy sauce. I'll serve it over rice.
They're stuffed with chopped celery leaves, chopped onion, breadcrumbs, parsley, thyme, sage, paprika, salt and pepper and moistened with chicken broth.

The chops are stuffed, then browned in butter and, finally, baked in a covered dish with a little more chicken broth.

Well, I did something I haven't done since 2005. My wife's dad gave her some coupons (as he often does) and there was one for McDonalds. So we decided to live a little dangerously tonight and each had a Big Mac.

I used to live on fast food when I was 20-something and could eat whatever I wanted, but I can tell already that I'll probably pay for this later.

On a related note, is it just me or does the smell of fast food linger for a long time? I can still smell "special sauce" even though we ate two hours ago.

That sounds good Andy...I'll have to give it a try.

MsM....I'm SO glad to see you again and hope you're feeling better. Whata bummer!

Great pics Harry and Pac!

I scored at the dollar store today They had the most beeeeautiful fresh asparagus at a buck a pound. I could hardly believe my eyes at this time of year, and people were practically fighting over it. I grabbed 5 lbs and didn't feel a bit guilty, although I got some snide looks.

I've been wanting to pickle some for a long time but I used some of it in an old stand by of a keeper recipe for a dinner casserole with chicken called "Chicken Asparagus Ole'"
If anyone wants the recipe I'll be happy to type it out tomorrow.

Would love the recipe, Kayelle! Great asparagus score!

We went out for Thai, split some Tom Kha soup. I had Crying Tiger beef, DH had Penang Salmon. Good stuff. Except for the salmon, DH loves salmon. I don't.

Sounds really good. That will be on the menu soon...it's been so long since I've had stuffed pork chops.

I had tacos tonight too. And chicken tostadas and ceviche. Mmmmmm. We went to an El Salvadoran restaurant called Acajutla. It was delicious.
