Thanks, Dawg, Somebun.
I'll have to remember turkey fajitas to help me use up my leftovers. Great idea and looking good.

We went to see "Saving Mr. Banks" so I made a quick dinner: pan-seared pork rib chops, salad with fresh mozzarella from the farmers market and basil-balsamic vinaigrette, and baguette slices drizzled with olive oil and toasted.

I made myself get up and move today and I wanted so badly to get back into my little kitchen and feed my precious friends and family.

I didn't cook from scratch this time. I used a package of shake and bake and added a packet of dry ranch dressing mix to it, and made these chicken thighs and breasts in the oven. It was very good!

Lakisha made her lovely seasoned green beans, and Carl made the salad of lettuce, baby spinach, cut up grape tomatoes, cut up radishes, shredded carrots, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, and garlic croutons.

But I found out that when it was time for dinner, I was very tired. I ate with everyone, but I had to nap after dinner. Something, maybe the medicines, is making me very tired.

With love,
~Cat

Cat, sweety, get some rest. I'm glad you're taking your meds.

Try to remember that our ingredients across the pond aren't always the same. XOX

I believe Tesco is a store where he shops. I know he's mentioned the name Tesco several times. So I'm, guessing the bag is a storebrand ziploc and it holds the marinating pork belly.
That's my best guess anyway
spot on pac!!tesco is the second largest retailer in the world,based on profit & the third largest in the world based on turnover.they've been trading for nearly 90 years.i guess you don't get that big & last so long unless you are doing something right!!
as pac said,the bag is a ziplock with the diced belly pork & nando's marinade in it.the "oniony thing" is an echalion shallot.milder,tastier & sweeter than most other onions & shallots.easier to dice,slice & chop 'cos of it's shape too!

And the long things in the onion skins are a variety of shallots (sometimes called banana shallots)
aldi is the fastest growing supermarket in the uk.they are clearly doing better than all of the supermarkets,including waitrose & sainsbury.in times of austerity it is little wonder that a discount retailer is out growing the competition.the growth in their luxury brands is largely fuelled by "reverse SNOBBERY retailing" with many shoppers from sainsbury & waitrose changing horses.the bulk of the generic "own label" food lines emanate from the same factories,with the same ingredients/ingredient ratio's,so very often,the only difference is the label.only marks & spencers buck that trend.park cakes in bolton is one example.
