Sorry to have disappeared again!  Dealing with family health issues and also having to get a new laptop – I had problems finding a usable (for me) photo editing app.  Found a way to get my old favorite Picasa onto my new computer, so I’m BACK!

 

Some recent dinners from our house include -

 

 

The inevitable salad:

And frozen chicken Kiev and basmati rice:

DSCN7429.thumb.JPG.6eb8219dcceca6820747a0348d08c9ba.JPG

Honestly, I can’t see myself making chicken Kiev from scratch again as long as they make this product.  It’s quite good and doesn’t require any work.  I love to cook, but find stuffing chicken breasts much too fiddley.  Served with some cheddar garlic biscuits left over from a dinner at Red Lobster (a gift card from a very nice person – the only decent part of the meal):

Another night we had some of the adequate tomatoes we’ve been getting:

And Sloppy Joes, baked beans and butter beans:

Mr. Kim’s birthday dinner - Nibble’s before dinner – Belmont Butchery’s (our favorite butcher shop) house made pork rillets:

So good!  The first time that I tasted pork rillettes was in NOLA and I couldn’t figure out how something that is basically pork and pork fat could be that silky and smooth and not greasy feeling.  I still can’t figure it out, but I’m sure glad someone closer than NOLA makes them!

 

Dinner itself was Roasted Pork Chops, butter beans & Gorgonzola Polenta

Lettuce in cream:

DSCN7438.JPG.619e6cc58e293563fa412d7252b3a2c7.JPG

This is a weird salad that I’ve posted before – iceberg with a dressing made of only cream, white vinegar and sugar.  Shouldn’t be as good as it is.

 

Wine:

Chocolate cake from Wegman’s:

Since we were celebrating with family and friends a few days later, I just bought a cake for the actual day.  It was actually very good.

 

My MIL made some Gazpacho – she even made some especially for me without bell peppers or jalapenos:

Just a simple creamy chicken dish that my stepmom makes. 

 

And, of course, a salad:

A dinner after a trip to Reidsville NC to visit grandmother.  Reidsville’s BBQ place is called Short Sugar’s – open since 1949 and my favorite BBQ.  Nibble before dinner – Short Sugar’s pork rinds and Palmetto pimento cheese:
