Pork Me With A Fork-I Think I'm Done

Done for the day that is!!!
MyHero came home and wanted
pork chops for dinner.
Pork chops? It's 235º outside.
And the humidity is 300%..
and you want pork chops?
You want to me to fix pork chops?
Do I look like I am flipping crazy?
Don't answer that because there is
NO. GOOD.ANSWER.

And, of course, if we have pork chops

we have to have... mashed potatoes with gravy.
Honey, this is the Midwest..you got pork chops..

you got gravy...deal with it.

And green beans...

Most Midwesterners drown theirs with butter.
I prefer a few beans with my butter.

And then...Oh My..

MyHero starts salivating down the front of his bib..
er, I mean..into his napkin.

I made him some cherry turnovers

which looked nothing like these

from Taste Of Living..No..ours were a bit lopsided...

we ate them while

they were hot enough

to take the skin off the roof

of our mouths.

I will spare you those pictures!

Well...mainly because you-know-who

wouldn't open his mouth so I could

take a picture..Spoil Sport!

Now, as I am cleaning up and doing dishes,

I remembered I had sheets on the line..

Which happened to be out overnight because

I forgot to bring them in last night

and it poured...and poured...and poured..

Now they REALLY smell

rainwater fresh...except for the one

with the bird poop on it...

I'll spare you that picture too.Ahhh..here comes the sunset..

The day is over..my work is done..

Except...wait...what's that?

You want chicken for dinner tomorrow night?

Well...here you go...have at it..

and good luck to you~Picture courtesy of The "Chicken Plucking" Secret of Success

  2. I miss you. Your post makes even this vegetarian remember the good old pork chops and fried chicken with gravy and mash potatoes dinner I used to make.
    Hope he loved your work as much as I did your post.
    Hugs,
    Kim

  3. You cooked pork chops inside when it was 235 degrees outside? Couldn't you just tell him you have been reading way too many cookbook posts .... and thought how about.....
    pork chops on the grill...how about....
    diced potatoes coated with olive oil and snips of rosemary and lots of fresh ground pepper bundled up in foil and cooked on the grill....how about...
    green beans bundled up in foil with how ever much butter works for you...and cooked on the grill? ...how about we eat this outside? unless you have central air conditioning.... I must confess it did look delicious! What time is the chicken dinner tomorrow?

  5. Thanks so much for finding my blog and commenting cause now I have found yours. I read your cute post about your brother and then this pork chops one had me laughing and laughing is good for you, right? It is way too hot and I grilled a pork tenderloin out last night on my hot deck because my husband doesn't know how to grill like most men. Have a super weekend.

  6. The Chinese call it 'take out', the Irish call it 'take away', I just call it 'the ideal choice' when it's over 200 degrees out. You are such a good wife!

  8. :) :) :) :)

    Here they are, Diana! lol!

    You deserve the Wife of the Month Award, girl! Sure hope that your Hero wiped his face off before he gave you a thank-you kiss (and presented you a sickeningly large diamond bracelet or something....)

    And write a book, will ya? You're a born story teller and would make millions!

    Smooches!
