I think the pork steak, if it isn't cut too thick (1/2 inch or less is probably best), would be great for schnitzel. It gets pounded thin and that tenderizes it, so quick cooking works well. Of course this works best if the meat has been cut across the grain.

I'm still dealing as best I can with all the produce covering my counter top. Just roasted some cherry tomatoes and froze them, now on to the cukes. I may make some more of Steve Kroll's fridge pickles, as the ones I made earlier are disappearing at a rapid pace. Still have to deal with green beans and broccoli. I grow very small amounts of stuff, but it's still more than enough for 2 people.

DH informed me yesterday that he was tired of eating so healthy...

I guess there are ways of 'dumbing down' the healthy side e.g. having the veg with a creamy cheese sauce - perhaps with a fat pork chop!

Stilton & Broccoli soup? Is nicoise salad still too healthy? (Green beans, tuna, boiled egg, etc)

I pay most of my bills autmagically with my Canadian Tire MC. That way I earn Canadian Tire "money on the card" for paying bills.

I like to sit down the first day of every month and schedule all my bills right then and there, that way I don't have to think about it again for another month.

We also use rewards cards to pay any bill we can, can't beat free money!

I really need to get off my couch and get stuff done. It's my last day off for 6 days and I have a ton to do. I have to go about 25 minutes out of town on errands, have to come home and make wedding cake layers and a dessert for a get together tomorrow!

Somewhere in there I have to go kick some butt at Verizon Wireless...
