i'm making this ...

take a bag of fresh spinach and add fresh diced tomato. toss in a balsamac vinaigrette dressing (i use newman's) and leave out while you make chops so it starts getting to room temp.

take thin cut boneless pork chops, wrap them in wax paper, and pound them with a mallot to tenderize and get to about 1/4 inch thick (you can use a meat tenderizer if you have one, but i like the mallot..)

salt pepper and onion garlic powder chops and then rub with olive oil. coat oiled chops in italian seasoned bread crumbs. then pan fry in about a teaspoon or so of addtl olive oil.

put spinach salad on serving plates and place the warm p chops on top to wilt salad. serve with garlic bread.

my husband LOVES this meal. it takes about 20 minutes to make. and you can use cheap pork chops, since you're gonna pound them anyway

OK, I'm not really making this right now... let's call it a dream post... but this is good. It is what I'm thinking about.

Take every vegetable they sell in the grocery store except for carrots (don't ask) and chop it up into pieces. Little pieces... now throw it all into a bowl. That's your salad.

Salad dressing, well, take a few dollops of mayonaise, some paprika and an avocado.... makes a nice salad dressing.


Mmmm.

TB, hungry now that she's quit drinking

Patio and a pond... that'll work. Yeah, this thread is causing me to be hungry.

Okay, truth is, I'm probably hungry just 'cause I am hungry, but I feel compelled to blame something.

My words and my actions don't always meet when it comes to blame... I am a strange one.

How about lasagna? Lasagna's good...

Once I have cleaned the house I am going to make a vegetable curry - something hot and spicy! Keeps the cravings away and is delicious.

I pretty much *will* eat anything. Although I usually go for stuff I think is tasty...

I'm big on tasty. It's the underlying common thread of my diet...


Curry keeps away cravings? Hmmm, I'll be checking that out for sure.

Googled a recipe for black pudding. I'll bet those seed looking things are cooked barley. Not so bad. I love to try new things. We took a 2 week vacation to Wales a few years ago. Stayed in a small town (? burg) near Carmarthen. Did lots of driving around -- beautiful country Sikkisirus! Loved it - particularly enchanted by the castles. We don't have anything that old in the states.

Anyway back to food, I was born in Sweden (Stockholm) and grew up on Swedish meatballs, small guys with no sauce. (TB, I know traditional recipes call for a sauce but my mom said that was WRONG!) Yummy! I like to make them but, boy, the stove really gets to be a greasy mess.

2nite I am having rib eye too. 30% off at Safeway since the exp. date was almost there. More mushrooms. LOVE steak & mushrooms.

Sikki- The small town started Llan.....wyn. We stayed in a vacation ?resort comprised of several cabins. Our cabin looked out at a sheep farm from our back yard. We could hear the sheep chowing down on the rolling green hill. Absolutely pastoral. Anyway, the small town has a small post office right at the intersection of the main road. Some of the more memorable moments of our trip was my husband driving a stick shift (with everything on the wrong side of course!!) on the left side of the street with brick/stone hedges about 2 inches away from the road. The farther north we went the narrower the roads and the closer those brick hedges got. Amazingly we didn't even get one nick on the rental car. Would love to return to the UK. Spent a couple of days in London. Didn't care for it that much. I'm much more of a small town gal. Do you also end every sentence with a question mark? That was one thing I noticed everyone does there.

Sikki-Found it! We stayed at the Pantglas Owners Club in Llanfyndd, Dyfed. Been there? Heard of it? They have a nice duck pond & a few resident ducks. Very nice accomodations.

Ha! I've been there too! Long ago

I remember standing on some hill in wales, next to a valley with more sheep in it than I've ever seen in one place. The sound coming up the side of the mountain was like one long droning "baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa-aaaaaa"

hehe

Tonight I'm making a quasi-goulash. I'm calling it quasi 'cause there're no tomatoes in it and I'm using potatoes instead of noodles.

It's simmering at the moment and it smells really really good.
