Workout: 25 minutes with weights and GMA. I also took a two-block walk with Denali. To quote the great musician Vanilla Ice … “Ice, ice, baby.”
I have a list, divided by department. The list is marked with sale items and coupons. I even have a menu for reference. Yet, no matter what I do, I can’t manage to go to the grocery and not forget something.
This week, it was boneless, skinless chicken breasts for this tasty Asian rice noodle soup (we ate it last night – try it) and pork chops for, well, pork chops.
So Saturday morning, I walked across the street to the other grocery to pick up some meat and ice cream for Mark. Twenty minutes later, I walked back across the street with supplies to make cookies, ice cream, three chicken breasts and 5 million pork chops.
In my defense, these were on “manager’s special” and ended up being $2 more for four times the meat. We’re trying to save money up in the Healthy Strides house so I figured that I could package the chops in sets of two and throw ’em in the freezer. And once each week for the next
3,456 four weeks, Mark and I can eat pork.
Tonight, we’re going super crazy – grilled pork chops (seasoned with salt, pepper and garlic powder) and cornbread stuffing. Broccoli, it’s on the side.
However, for the other three weeks, I’d like to go real crazy. And I was hoping you could help by, like, you know, sharing your favorite pork recipe. If you are a follower and submit a tasty idea, I just might pick you to win a lame prize but a real prize nonetheless. I’m for reals. Just call this a giveaway. Of the pork variety.
By the way, when I Google’d “tower of pork chops,” this was the first photo to pop up on the image results.
That’s Duff from “Ace of Cakes.” A bit ironic, considering he is Jewish and pork is so not kosher. He could not win the prize.
