We have rain and cold today so I'll be putting the pot of ham and bean soup to cook shortly. Can't decide between strawberry shortcake (on pound cake, with ice cream rather than on biscuits or "sponges" with whipped cream) or maybe I'll bake some oatmeal cookies. Not a big cookie baker but the weather seems to need something like that.

It's cold and rainy here too. We're having hot pastrami sandwiches and salad. Maybe some mac and cheese for a side if I'm feeling especially hungry.

Pork Milanese and a tossed salad!

It is really just homemade shake and bake but, Pork Milanese sounds better!

For two pieces of pork I mix up.
1/4 cup of Panko crumbs
1/4 cup Romano grated cheese
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Black pepper
A pinch of baking powder
A drizzle of olive oil for the pan and on the chops

Dip pork in beaten egg and then in crumb mixture. Bake at 400 degrees for approx. 30 minutes.

I'm going out to dinner with friends tonight instead of tomorrow, because tomorrow I'm making a rain barrel at a class sponsored by the local cooperative extension office, where I volunteer as a master gardener. DH will have a Marie Callender's chicken pot pie. He loves those. Nice, easy comfort food

After much consideration, I decided I wanted mushroom Swiss chicken. I'm home alone right now but I went ahead and made the chicken. I also put some cubed potatoes in the oven to roast and I may pull out the lettuce and have a salad with it. There will be enough for folks to reheat when they get home if they want.

I just finished a spinach salad. Will continue dinner later with a baked potato and some of the roasted chicken I picked up at the market.

Doctored up some previously made potato leek soup with Hen of the Woods mushrooms, more herbage and pepper, milk, and yogurt cheese. Now for a dash of sherry.

Shoot, out of sherry. Oh, well, it's tasting pretty good.

Ended up with the shortcake. Too lazy to make the cookies and the berries need to be used before they spoil even if I was able to get 2# for $2.99.
