The Great 2012 Cooking Extravaganza! Day 182

Hello again friends, and welcome back!  Hope you’re having a Terrific Tuesday, and getting geared up for the holiday tomorrow!  We’ve got the day off, Mike and I anyway, so we’re sitting here trying to figure out what we want to do, with no money of course.  James has to work in the evening, and William is heading to Disney with a friend, so maybe we need to watch some of the not-so-kid-friendly movies we’ve been wanting to watch.  Got plenty of left-overs in the fridge, plus a few things hiding in the freezer that we can cook, so food won’t be an issue.  Get paid on Thursday, so I know I’m either heading to Walmart or heading out for fast food that night LOL!

Anyway, you’re here for the recipes more than the ramblings, or at least I like to think so, so here we go…

Grilled Pork Chops (SUPER easy!)

Heat your George Foreman grill to medium

Plop on 4-5 boneless pork chops seasoned with just salt and pepper on both sides

Cook until nicely browned on both sides, about 10 minutes


Told you it was SUPER easy!!

I soooo cheated tonight…  except for the pork chops, everything else went in the microwave!  Frozen broccoli, frozen cauliflower, frozen peas, and fresh summer squash.  The first three went in covered glass dishes with about a tablespoon of butter and about a 1/4 of a cup of water, cooked for 5-8 minutes or until heated through and steamy.  The last, the squash, went into a zip-and-steam bag with a little butter, no water, cooked 3 minutes on high.  Perfect!!!

But, I did play catch up on downloading photos tonight, so here are some of my dishes from the past week that I missed adding photos. I’m going to go hunt down the right posts to add these to, but not right this second…

Quiche, think this was Sunday

Pasta salad

Curry Chicken

Popcorn chicken

So, hopefully something here made your mouth water, and made you want to cook!  Go for it!!

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