Buried treasure = baked beans with pork chops cut in pieces. Arugula salad, cheesy garlic drop biscuits. Cookies and milk.

The store had boneless pork loin roasts on sale a couple weeks ago. I bought 2 and sliced 1 1/2 of them into boneless chops. Froze in meal size baggies. None of the roasts had very much in the way of fat caps, they trim them up too much, but the price was right.

Corn pudding, Jabbur? Is there a recipe posted? If not, please tell. I'd love to try that.

I'm still experimenting with American Southern foods. Tonight is glazed ham, mashed potatoes and gravy, and seasoned green beans that Lakisha made here once.

With love,

I've been on a guacomole kick lately. I work up one avocado at a time and eat on the guacomole that day. Today's quacomole was a little heavy on the garlic, I had run out of small cloves....

Well, it was going to be Costco rotisserie chicken. I even bought the chicken and put it in the thermal bag. When I got home, Stirling was frying up ground beef, onion, and garlic to put in the freezer for sloppy Joes and stuff. So by the time he was done, the chicken would have had to be nuked.

Stirling picked up a dozen bagels earlier today. He suggested that I pick up some smoked salmon. Since I was at Costco, I picked up a package of Norwegian smoked salmon. While I was at the health food store I picked up some organic Danish cream cheese. So, since we both wanted smoked salmon, that's what we had for supper. I sliced some red onion and put out the capers to go with it. Stirling pulled out the toaster for the bagels. Oh yeah, that was what we needed. Happy tummy.

I guess I'll nuke the rotisserie chicken tomorrow for supper.

I have a rotisserie so I dressed up a chicked with rosemary, tyme and olive oil and cooked that up with some brussel sprouts and mixed veggies in butter sauce and some stuffing w/gravy on the side. dessert - home made apple pie (from my granny smith apple tree). OH YUM !

MY SECRET - A pinch of this, a dash of that, serve with a dollop of stuff and garnish before serving."Make a lot of noise in the kitchen, and they'll think the meal was hard to make". (x bill cosby)
