Well, since he just got back from Montreal, it's Montreal Smoked Meat sandwiches and homemade fries. Dill pickles and coleslaw.

Left-over bbq (sort of anyway - I had to make it in my pressure cooker - it's not that good because it's not smoked - if I would just call it a pork roast it would be ok ) and German potato salad. It's actually way too heavy a meal for thhis time of year but what can I say - that's what I fixed

There's a lot of meatloaf walkin around tonight.

I was planning on making kadesma's lemon chicken and potatoes tonight but I just didn't have it in me. Didn't even get to the store the last couple days to shop for it. Still getting over being sick, so we had an easy dinner of caprese pasta. I attack kadesma's recipe Wed or Thurs!

i'm getting closer.

i made the elusive marinated pork chop recipe that i've mentioned before. i've almost got it. the marinade consisted of:

1 head of garlic, smashed and roughly chopped
10 bay leaves
1 cup water
2 tsps sea salt
2 tbsps brown sugar
2 cloves
4 allspice berries
1+ shot sweet sherry
1+ shot gosling's black seal rum

everything is brought to a boil and the alcohol flamed off.

i'm so close. it had most of the savory depth of flavor that i remember, but it wasn't sweet enough, or garlicy enough.
i'm thinking of using white sugar next time, or maybe honey. and i might use 2 heads of toasted garlic.

is your glass half full or empty? my is half full

Frankly, I want to forget yesterday like a bad dream. Between my old Husky with the "runs" & a colicy horse, I spent the entire day walking one or the other in our wonderful 95-96-degree heat. By the time husband arrived home at 7 p.m., I was still walking & quite ready to collapse.

So - dinner consisted of a boiling pot full of our favorite chicken-vegetable "potsticker" dumplings with spicy dipping sauce & a Ginger/Sesame dressed green salad.

You people are making me hungry for meat loaf. May have to make some Thur or Friday. Last night the 28th we had Warm Green Bean and Tommy Toe Salad with yellow tomatoes just picked from my Aunts vines, buttermilk mashed potatoes and pork butt baked with a smear of my son's homemade Jack Daniels BBQ sauce (yummy!) and some warmed up Spoon Rolls I baked the other night.
