What's for Dinner, Thurs., Mar. 4, 2021

Zucchini crust pizza.

Salad, as in tossed green.

The RG is away for a couple days on business, so I figure this is a good time to make this fave recipe of mine.

(on business: see what happens when you get your vaccine? Yay for him.)

Dessert: apple slices with peanut butter.

1. Stir fry tonight

I have beef marinating and will stir fry it with whatever vegetables I find in my crisper. Probably peppers. Not rutabagas, though. Definitely not rutabagas.

6. Either lasagna w/mushrooms or mac and cheese w/mushrooms

When you come right down to it, they're essentially the same thing.

Update in the never-ending Chinese takeout: I boiled down the pork trotters to make a stock (they're very gelatinous - the stock was almost solid when it cooled!), then added what meat was left on them, some cabbage, tofu, and snow peas. That was lunch today - and tomorrow! And that I hope is the last of it: we expected 2+ meals out of the order, and ended up with 8 - not bad for the price.

8. Grandma's Porkchops

She made these instead of the big turkey in the later years of her life. We welcomed them. And I still make them.
Smashed potatoes and also fried (in bacon grease) then creamed corn.

For the chops:


Pepperidge Farm stuffing mix
3-6-9 pork chops (thin or thick but works best with thin)
Melted Butter (a half stick will coat 3 chops)

1/3 bag stuffing mix in a gallon zip lock bag
Crush the stuffing mix up
Dip each chop in melted butter and then in the bag it goes. Shake or just cover and coat. No need to grease dish but foil is cool.

Bake @ 350/375 until your chops reach 165F
Usually 20-40 min. You are looking for golden toasty goodness and you will smell them and hear them sizzling.

Thanks grandma! She passed in 2009.
