No fish for my two cleaning assistants, but hopefully MM will bring something home for our dinner. He is out fishing with a group of guys, which leaves me without wheels at the Moho.
I will survive.
Yesterday I laid claim to the wheels, needing to go shopping for some strappy, snazzy evening shoes. Of course I came home with everything BUT shoes, exciting stuff like cotton balls, cereal, phone charger...no pretty shoes.
We are going to a semi-formal banquet tomorrow night. Maybe no one will look at my feet. Oh well. It is no big deal. I do have sparkly flats I can wear. I am not concerned about the fashion police attending, that is for sure.
So my stacked crockpot (Pinterest) dinner was moderately successful. I layered pork chops on the bottom of the pot, dumped BBQ sauce over the top to them, layered golden potatoes inside tin foil and places on top of the chops, then tin-foil wrapped fresh brussel sprouts.
That was the problem. The recipe said to butter, salt and pepper them, and tightly seal. I did. They were dry. Tender, but d.r.y. More butter? Add water? EVOO? Don't tightly seal? Hmmm. Back to the drawing board.
Jeanie Weanie, let me know if you try it...and do it differently. It was a great idea, but it needs tweaking. It would be good with broccoli, too. BTW, if you need to layer your chops, put foil between the layers, otherwise they stick together. Trust me.
So that's your cooking tip for today. What's cooking at your house tonight?
Have yourselves a ginger peachy Friday, y'all!
