On Strike

I haven't posted anything recently for a reason. I am in protest mode. I will not cook anything until the dishes in my sink are done. After all, this isn't Olga's Diner. A little harsh, yes, but it stinks to be a short order cook, server, and dishwasher. I called the union.

Oh so yummy tonight. Hubby was skeptical at the looks of the meal tonight. I put 3 super thick pork chops in my crock pot. I poured half a bottle of Newman's Own lime vinaigrette of them and set on on low. Thanks to the late Mr. Newman for yummy products, btw. After 2 hours I added a can of chili beans (with sauce) and a can of corn, drained. I cooked it another 2 hours and served it over brown rice. I also steamed cauliflower and topped it with queso sauce. Oh so yummy. I am going for a walk now.

I am waiting for my water to boil for my frozen egg noodles. I am going to mix them with tuna, mayo, sour cream, onion powder, celery powder, dry mustard, Worcestershire (my secret weapon), and cheddar cheese. I'll top it with the rest of my grape tomatoes and breadcrumbs. Oh, and then bake it. I can't wait. Good day for comfort food. Brr.

O.K. So Sunday we had dinner with our church home group. I made a red velvet trifle since it was Valentine's Day but didn't have to cook. That was pretty cool. So today I baked salmon in Italian dressing and put it over organic salad that I got from walmart. I was so excited. The box was only $2.50 for spring mix. I sliced a cuke and added grape tomatoes. I used Ken's honey mustard dressing on top and it was just soooo yummy and healthy (*bonus*).

Pork Fried Rice

Tonight I kept dinner easy and not very creative. I am trying to use all of my stockpiles of food so I can defrost my outside fridge. I stir-fried 2 pork chops with minced garlic and ground ginger. I then added a bag of frozen mixed veggies, brown rice I cooked earlier and a beaten egg. I topped it off with some soy sauce. It was quick, easy, yummy and I used up a bunch of things I had on hand.
