Chops......

..... pork chops, heavily coated in black pepper & a little sea salt...... sautéed in a dab of butter & a splash of Worcestershire sauce until brown on both sides...... and then gently lowered into a casserole dish filled with cream of mushroom soup, a cup of double cream, a cup of diced & sautéed onions, and two cloves of crushed garlic...... with a plan to bake that at 375 for 45 minutes..... my goodness.....

.... steamed baby Dutch potatoes, and fresh corn on the cob courtesy of my houseguest for the past two days, Mr. Sam......

... that, boys & girls, is what's for dinner....

.... there's nothing like a properly gravied pork chop to drive the horses of normality back to their stables, rubberneckers....... pork chops feed the soul just as much as the satisfy the paunch...... and whipping up a batch that are 'just like Mamma used to make'?..... well, it's a balm to sooth the thorniest of attitudes.....

.... in other news, I happened to see my first toad of the season today..... marbled with grays & browns, he looked exactly like a hopping gravel....... a itty-bitty little fellow, he was, and were I not a man of such keen senses I'd likely have trod on him.... but he was fortunate to have caught me on a day when my rapier like skillz & karmic radar were both at maximum power.....

.... had I met him this Friday past?.... after lunchtime?..... well, he'd be laying out back with his lower intestines peeking wetly from his lipless mouth, I reckon.....

..... thus the world goes 'round, right?..... one day you're the windshield, the next day you're the bug........ or perhaps The Stones were right..... and if you try sometimes, you just might find that you get what you need?...... hey, I'm down with that as a Bit of Wisdom.....

...... trouble is, most folks don't really want what they need...... me, though?..... I certainly don't have that problem.....

...mmmmm...... pork chops ......

There was a frog on the softball field the other day - not too far from homeplate on the first base line. One of the lady spectators pointed him out to my daughter who was the hindcatcher and wanted her to remove the frog from the danger of being trampled. Jesse was very good to shoo the frog away with her glove and chase it off the field to the amusment of the crowd. I was just proud that she did not give it a good kick.

Good Lord that sounds good, but I'm not sure my missing gall bladder body can handle that double cream! But it sounds really really good!

My pleasure my friend....REALLY enjoyed the hospitality and conversations.

BTW, your blade has got to be somewhere in your house or car...or maybe the Mexicans have it...of course they wouldn't tell you if they found it. Just retracing our steps.

If I had it, you would've already received a ransom demand.

Sounds delish! I may have to give that a whirl around here some evening!

Sounds great. Mind you I love well prepared pork chops but any time someone mentions pork chops, the first thing that pops into my mind is that joke. About the girl so ugly her parents had to tie a pork chop around her neck to get the dog to play with her.
Every....freekin'....time..
