I bought some nice smoked pork chops from the butcher down the road from Loverly - the same butcher shop my Dad would take a family drive to with my Mom and me back when we lived in Garfield Heights - a mere 63 miles away! To think that Dad thought of this as a nice day off, considering he put many, many miles a day on his bread delivery man every single day. Man, I miss him...
Anyway, back to dinner. Himself will grill the chops lightly. We'll have some fresh corn, tossed salad, and the piece de resistance: Fried Cabbage and Noodles. My kids will be thrilled - especially the big one.
Nothing special today. Went fishing on Saturday and got a 15 inch and 16 inch rainbow trout to be grilled later this week. Will munch on pasta salad, cuke salad and some green chile hummus and chips. Will have some Trader Joes dark chocolate peanut butter cups for dessert.
Our brother came over as he often does Monday nights for dinner. I made my now famous pork burgers with bacon and cheese mixed in with the meat. The bacon makes the meat juicier (I use lean cuts that I grind myself and grind the bacon, onion, garlic, and cheese right into it). I also made oven fries and salad. There were 3 cupcakes left from my order from Sunday so we ate them for dessert.
