Didn't feel like cooking so we decided to look for a sushi place locally, as we haven't ordered sushi out since we moved. Found one that got 4+ star reviews. Got a couple of different sushi rolls. A spicy conch salad, some spring rolls and some Massaman chicken curry. Everything was great except the spring rolls that were way over fried.

Made myself chicken fried steak with sausage gravy and tater tots. I decided to deep fry the meal. That way I could deep fry the tater tots - much better that way.

Reruns here too. Sliced pork shoulder, mashed potatoes and gravy, and a (new) loaded up salad.

I like to pan fry leftover pasta. Add meat(balls) sauce and grated cheese fry till browned and crisp flip repeat. Yum!

Love fried tots! Nice and crispy with salt and malt vinegar.

I usually just nuke it, but I'll give that a go next time...

Oh yeah, I'm cooking!

I love that dish, Kayelle. I've made it a few times and it's yummy

DH harvested the last of our garden peppers last weekend, and we needed some comfort food tonight - it's been drizzly and overcast all day. So I made a big pot of posole and served it with Velveeta-salsa dip and tortilla chips. Hit the spot

Like you GG, we really liked that recipe. but I only cooked two big chops and next time I'll cut the sauce recipe by half. I finished the dish in the skillet on top of the stove, not in the oven. The addition of apple was a nice treat for me.
We had steamed buttered broccolini as a side.

I didn't feel like cooking. I saw this recipe in a magazine at the hair salon yesterday. It is tasty. I would make it again, maybe garnish it next time with fresh tomatoes. I used grated cheddar instead of Velveeta. Side was a garden salad and homemade dinner rolls (pulled out of the freezer).

I've done pan-fried pork chops with apples and shallots for ages. The "sauce" I make is different, though, using hard cider or a dry apple wine to deglaze the pan, no mustard or cream. However, that Bourbon sounds intriguing. Glad you liked the recipe.


**********************

We picked my car up from the auto body shop (we have to stop "meeting" like that...), seemed to be OK, and continued on with our errands list from yesterday. Decided to take a break at our favorite Irish pub and split an Irish potato pizza with two pints of ale - mine a American pint (16), Himself's an Imperial one (20 oz).

After we were home awhile, we decided we were just a wee bit hungry. We each had a bowl of the leftover ham and beans and collard greens. Just right!
