Forgive me for the short post. I am tired and ready for bed. I did not realize until just now it is 1130!!
My day started with a banana and peanut butter and jelly toast. Great way to get the day going!
I received a phone call today from one of the editors of the local paper. She called to let me know my recipe and article are going to be in the paper. My articles and recipe will become a regular part of the newspaper. I will be writing about locally grown food and coming up with recipes to go along with it.
I'm really excited about this. The paper, also, has an article about someone in the community each month, and she would like to interview me. So, not only will I have recipes in the paper, I will have an article about me. WOWHOO.!! As my sister say, I'm going to be famous :)
To tell you what I made for dinner tonight, I must start with dinner from last night. I did not like the pork chops from last night and wasn't going to post them, but my pot pie was so good I figured I would.
And the veggies were great!
I used my grill pan and cooked the pork chops with salt, pepper, and ground red pepper.
I cooked the brussels sprout and okra with garlic, salt, pepper, and olive oil. I served with a boxed brown rice pilaf. Super easy dinner.
I had a couple of chops leftover and decided to chop them up and make Pork Pot Pie for dinner, tonight.
