Pork Chops, garlic mashed potatoes, and corn on the cob. I just use a simple marinade for the chops... W-sauce, A1, and soy sauce with a bit of lemon juice and brown sugar. Good shit. Same thing goes for burgers when I make them.

I watched Rachel Ray today make mashed sweet potatoes with a scoop of orange marmalade, a half a cup of chicken stock, and a couple of dashed of hot sauce.  I don't even like sweet potatoes, but it looked good.

I can see how it would work with the sweetness - it would add a zing.  It wasn't a lot of hot sauce.

We had brisket and veggies and rosemary garlic spuds.

Not too shabby.  The brisket cooked up in the crockpot pretty well.

Made tuna macaroni salad for dinner. It was 80 today...and we don't have the AC on....so it was perfect. Plus leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

M had cherry pie for dessert and I had the last of the peppermint ice cream.
Just hand over the chocolate...back away slowly...far away....and you won't get hurt....

Save the Earth... it's the only planet with chocolate.

Gonna make some camp hash:


Slice 6-7 polish sausages, 1/4" thick. Fry in a large, deep skillet (12" or bigger, I use a cast iron one) with 1/8th - 1/4 C salad oil until browned. Add 5-6 unpeeled potatoes diced (make all diced items 1/4" square) Fry until they just begin to brown. Season w/ S&P. (season after each addition) Add one large red onion, diced. Cook until they just begin to soften, turning the whole mass often.
Add 1 can of sliced mushrooms (drained) cook and turn over until heated through. Word of warning: for some reason fresh mushrooms don't taste right. The potatoes should be soft at this point.
Take a block of pepperjack cheese and make approx 7-9 (again, 1/4" thick) slices to cover the "hash". I arrange them like spokes on a wheel.
Let cook until the cheese melts.

Serve up!















And, no, I don't eat this very often!! I gotta watch my (wife's) girlish figure.    :tongue:

Sounds similar to something we make...fried sausage, taters and onion...just minus the mushrooms and cheese.  We haven't had it in eons, though.

I went to the commissary and bought a rib eye steak. They have grills here at the lodging facilities. I had that and a baked potato. It's the first truly decent meal I've had in over a week. The rest of the week has been sandwiches for lunch and dinner or the last couple of days, I've had microwave dinners. At least they were hot.

Did you do the potato on the grill as well?   That's my favorite way.

No, I didn't want to wait an hour for it to get done. Besides, that requires extra $$ for foil that I won't use but once or twice. My Favorite quick way is to microwave them until almost done, then pop them in a 450-500° oven until crispy crunchy on the outside.

Those meals will get better soon. Not to far off.I went to the VFW meeting( Ladies Auxiliary) and supper and had fried chicken,basil cola slaw,green beans,broccoli and cauliflower,iced tea,and cranberry crunch cake. Missed my significant other, tho.

I had crappy grocery store chicken in my hotel room.

But there was a cream parfait cup later, which was okay.

I had medium-rare roast beef, asparagus, baked potato, homemade cheese biscuits, and pumpernickel break with lots of butter.  :)

But I had to listen to Garrison Keilor.  It was actually kinda funny.  They told dumb jokes the entire time instead of doing a regular show.  Picture two hours of this:

Leftover pork chops with mac n cheese.

Beef stew is held over until tomorrow.  Or maybe I'll just burn a steak and do the stew for lunches.
