Then Monday morning hits.
But then there are moments when an aligning of the stars takes place, and I pull together something super-fast and super-easy, like this stir-fry, and wonder why in the world I don't do it more.
When we got home from our recent visit to Indiana, I pulled out a couple of pork loin chops Mom had gotten on sale. Still frozen, I let them sit in just a little bit of Dale's seasoning and put them in the crock pot over night. By the next morning, I had incredibly flavored meat to use for whatever. Simple. I stir-fried some veggies I had on hand, threw in a few flavor hits, a couple of cups of rice, stirred it all together, and bada bing! Lunch is served.
I'm looking forward to a great weekend... a little cooler, but a lot of sunshine and a ton of baseball. Grocery shopping is on the list as well. I have some fun ideas in the works and a few cooking adventures up my sleeve. I hope you're enjoying the blog as much as I am! Come sit a spell, and bring your friends. There's always room at the table!
Happy Friday to all!
