Good Eats

Today is Sunday... which means it's either GOOD cookin' day here (good ol' southern style) OR it means we are cookin' new stuff. Today is a mixture of both.

We went to the market yesterday and got some big fat pork chops. Conrad has a hankering for my mango salsa which goes GREAT with pork chops... so I agreed to make it. So today he is grilling the pork chops and I'll be making the salsa. I thought while he was grilling, I'd ask him to go ahead and grill our hatch chiles we got yesterday too. While he is doing that, I am going to make garlic and cream cheese mashed potatoes with caramelized onions... (not gonna use the hatch chiles today!)... and maybe some biscuits to go along- I dunno yet.

We're going to use up some leftovers too- tomorrow I am going to make quesidillas with hatch chiles, chicken and caramelized onions. YUM YUM.

Two days worth of good eats- pretty much done all at once! If ya'll ever want recipes, just let me know!

Not much more going on today- I am here, sitting in the cave (solar screens ROCK), watching stuff I Tivo'd... Blanca is laying next to me, snoring and Conrad is in the other room, I think snoring too. I can't hear him today. Yesterday I was watching tv and he left the door to his room open- I turned the TV down and all I HEARD was the sound of logs being sawed. Gracious! I guess the dog gets it from him.

K- caramelizing onions takes a long time- so I gotta go!
