I'm not too sure. I"m feeling kind of tired and lazy....my excuse....ammm 2 more months to go in my pregnancy 'lol'.

I took out some boneless pork chops from the freezer.
I might put together some kind of stir-fry on top of rice. That's my goal so far.

The pork is usually marinated in soy sauce, vinegar, seseme oil, garlic and ginger before cooking. Most likely I have posted this before since it's a common supper I make.

I just breaded and browned 4 pork chops and put them in the crock pot with some fresh onions and canned potatoes. I tried this last week too and they turned out way good beyond reason. Will also bake some sweet potatoes along with some garlic whole wheat dinner rolls. I predict we will have this same meal in a day or two!

at room temp, certain meats such as beef build up Uric acid, this tenedrises it to some extent.

I went out and got some pork loin *sliced* and I am marinating it right now. Im attempting to make red cooked bbq pork slices chinese style with lightly fried rice. Wish me luck! Never tried this, but I got enough feedback where I should be alright.

Salmon cakes and all the goodies we got at the farmer's market this morning--peas, strawberries and bi-colored corn. The corn's the first of the season, which seems awfully early to me for PA, but we'll give it a try!

change of plans, we picked up some corn so we're grilling that, and having some pasta (dunno about a sauce yet though) along with it.

We're having pork chops on the grill and corn on the cob. I wanted to grill the corn, too, but Kim doesn't want to mess with it, and he doesn't want it done in the nuke either. So I guess we'll boil it. I have some good leftover broccoli I'll re-heat, and there's a little French bread left, that I can slice and slather with butter to roll our corn in.
Wish I had a big, red, ripe beefsteak tomato to slice, but it's going to be about a month before we get any out of our garden. All we have are blooms right now.

Survivor girl, how do you grill your corn?

Husband got caught in horrendous traffic yesterday, so arrived home late & in the mood for something fast & light.

That ended up being cheddar-cheese omelets with turkey bacon, a small side of shoestring potatoes, & a small salad.
