    Ooops! I posted it under the wrong heading :135:
        Here tonight, had- baked pork chop and gravy (made with apple apple), mashed potatoes with sour cream and butter along side of roasted shredded brussel sprouts with bacon bits, dessert- haagen-dazs vanilla swiss almond ice cream.
          :130:

          One of my cooking-mottos is... everything deserves gravy :smt045
          Sounds delicious! Do you cook for one? or usually have leftovers?

          Good question, Thanks for asking.
          Now a-days- I've got it down to two, after years of intently whittling from ten to eight to six servings- which was my usual for years. So yes almost always have leftovers. Soup, soup. soup. :up:
          Only me now, so... Also I find with the going down to two-servings I lost my sense of auto-know regarding timing, irritatingly.

          And you?

              Sorry to say most of tonight's dinner went in the garbage.
              Pork Sausage from Freshco (horrible flavour) Cheemos Cheese and Potato Perogies (garbage) :-X
              The only thing worth eating was the Beets out of our garden.

              Sudsy, beets are good. Haven't found a good sausage here so I stick to name brands like Brandt or Schneiders - brats and Oktoberfest are good.

              Tonight think I'll do a blast from the past and go for a hot hamburg sandwich but without the blankety-blankety-blank peas they always served with it. Extra fries, lots of gravy and either coleslaw or corn niblets - hell, maybe both.

              I still like Johnsonville. However, nesters makes their own and they are really quite good and not overpriced. I also used to like those perogies...what a disappointment after all the effort.

              We don't shop at Nestors as the closest one is too far away to make it worthwhile.

              Lakeview Market used to have some Beef sausages that were good but they changed to a gluten fee one that tastes like crap!
              They got them from Bonanza but were spiced different than what they make now.

              I don't mind them but my better half doesn't like them.

              Our biggest problem is we like different things which don't always match.

              Maybe get our Son to cook. (he used to be a chef) lol

              He does an awesome Prime Rib with Roasted Potatoes, Yorkshire pudding and Sauteed Asparagus.

              He always cooks for us on special occasions.

              Unfortunately my Besthalf is out tonight and I'm on my own.

              Probably Bacon, cheese and Tomato sammy. Still have fresh tomatoes from the garden to eat.
