Back to Normal

June 17th, 2010 at 04:06 pm

We are back to everyday life after our big anniversary adventure to celebrate our 20 years together. And thatís OK.

I pulled chops out of the freezer last night to thaw in the fridge. We go to this little store in a crummy neighborhood every few weeks on Thursdays to buy meat. They cut and package it the way you want and give seniors (62+) a 10% discount. We buy what we need and put it in the freezer. We are going to have pork chops, roasted potatoes with green peppers and onions, roasted zucchini, herb biscuits, and fruit. The onions will come out of hubbyís garden. I figure if Iím going to have the oven on, I might as well make use of it.

Roasting the potatoes is fairly simple. I peel the potatoes and slice thinly. I chop the onion and the green pepper Ė all about the same size and add whatever spices I have handy. Today I think Iím going to add rosemary. I drizzle with olive oil and with clean hands make sure everything is covered. I roast uncovered in the oven at 350 for about 40 minutes. Yum! You can do this with about any root vegetable so when I do the zucchini and onion, it will be the same way.

They say the way to a manís heart is through his stomach. My husband would agree.

So, I better continue cooking so heíll keep me another 20 years!

    Yum! I slice potatoes and sweet potatoes and rub them with oil and roast for 20 minutes. Delicious snacks or television nights. Now I'll have to try that, as soon as I get the darn oven fixed.
