This’ll be a short post. Long week. So tired. *blink, blink*
Breakfast was oatmeal with raisins, butter, and amber agave syrup. Would’ve used honey, but it was in a tub, and the agave syrup was in an easy-pour bottle, and did I mention I’m really tired?
Lunch was a planned outing with co-workers. I shared an appetizer sampler with them, and my lunch was vegetarian nachos and a strawberry shake.
For dinner, we had the kid over, and she loves meat, so we made some of the Omaha Steaks pork chops. I dredged them in seasoned flour, then eggs, then seasoned panko. Fried in a mix of butter and olive oil. Pretty good, though I’m used to my pork fattier. Served with corn on the cob and artichokes. The kid said “Oh, man, I LOVE summer corn!”
(That pile of yellow stuff is applesauce. The kid and I don’t eat pork chops without applesauce. It just isn’t done in my family. When I was growing up, pork chops were always Shake ‘n’ Bake (I didn’t have any) and always served with applesauce. That’s just the way it was. Family traditions are important!)
