The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 115

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  It’s been a Wonderful Wednesday around here, hope yours is just a good!

Third day on the new job, starting to get a better handle on how everything fits together, actually got to do a little hands on training AND a little work today, and I only made one mistake!  The drive in was horrible, there was a bad accident on one route, which of course caused heavier traffic on the other possible route, so it took me an hour to make a 20 minute trip!!  But the boss was really understanding, said a lot of folks were late today, not just me.  So far she seems like a pretty good boss, I mean, how far wrong can you go with a red headed Irish woman!  And everyone around me is really helpful, very easy to talk to, no one has any attitude issues that I can see, which is a HUGE plus in my book!

Anyway, James is at work, got a ride from a friend, got her to feel sorry for him, need to make sure he gives her gas money, or at least OFFERS!  William had a good day at school, FCAT’s are almost over, but he has homework tonight, not too happy about it either.  Mike had a busy day, but a good day, and his drive wasn’t too bad for a change.

Seems we didn’t completely avoid the HOA lawn police.  SOMEONE came and cut our grass today, which is sort of funny considering the neighbor literally next door has weeds (no grass, just weeds) over a foot tall, which is part of why we always have weeds, but no one is cutting THEIR “lawn”.  Oh well, guess we’ll get a bill for that at some point.  Better be cheap, though, since we pulled all the weeds, trimmed the bushes, and did the edging last Friday.  AND I made sure to e-mail the jerks, and got a read receipt!!  I’m ready for them…

So, we had another quick and simple dinner tonight.  I had pork chops thawed out, so I threw those on the grill.  Salt and pepper on both sides before grilling, cooked about 5 minutes on each side at medium-low setting on our gas grill.  AWESOME!  Made another baked potato for Mike and I to split, since it was about 2 pounds, that was PLENTY of potato!!  William just wanted some Mandarin oranges to go with his dinner, figure he’ll hit me up for chips or popcorn later, but right now he’s doing homework and trying to get done so he can go ride his bike before it gets dark.

Sorry I don’t have any big complicated recipes tonight, but I just wasn’t up for it!  Thinking about either fried chicken or curried chicken tomorrow night, so we’ll have something cool for you either way!

Until tomorrow, eat well, love well, live well!
