No offense with the title I hope LOL.
This has been my mission since well before dawn today
40 pounds of pulled pork butt
Well, I am a bachelor tonight, as the rest of the family went to Little Rock to see some country singer or another at Verizon Arena. I rarely go anywhere on Saturday nights, as I have teaching responsibilities on Sundays. Tomorrow I teach morning AND night. In the morning I have the Adult I class, which I teach on a rotation with some other men, and in the evening I have my Young Teen class, which is mine every Sunday night.
So, it’s fend for myself night. When I cook for just me, odds are high it will involve something deep fried, cheese, bacon, tomatoes, and something spicy. And of course, it will always be heart healthy LOL. Tonight was no exception
Okay, I don’t really want to have a huge Doctrinal battle over this, but NOBODY does potluck like a bunch of Baptists.
For the record, I had nothing to do with any of this; it’s all due to the efforts of my lovely better half.
Actually, it’s whats for dinner and supper. I have been left alone last night and all day today, as the church ladies took a weekend in Branson, and the youngest is across the road keeping her Grandpa company.
Now I LOVE tomatoes! Not just any tomatoes, but the real deal vine ripened ones. Which means that for most of the year I don’t eat tomatoes. They are just about my favorite vegetable(I know, I know; they are a fruit botanically,)
Well yesterday, a customer was kind enough to give me a mess of vine ripened, hydro grown tomatoes(they aren’t grown in dirt, weird.) Anyway, when I have tomatoes I tend to binge on them 3 meals a day until they are gone. I skipped breakfast this morning, but had my share for dinner and supper!
Dinner was a nice egg, cheese and tomato sandwich on bread seared on the grill. I would have had bacon, but somebody apparently ATE IT ALL AND DIDN’T TAKE ANY OUT OF THE FREEEZER! Hey, all you yuppie types? This is how things got done before the Panini press came along.
Supper was….um…something? It really doesn’t have name but it consisted of cubed chicken breast, onions, and fresh tomotoes(Duh!), quickly sauteed for just long enough really hot to cook the chicken. The beauty of those three ingredients is you can do whatever you want with them, seasoning wise; in this case I opted for an Italian theme, going with some garlic, rosemary, basil, thyme, and oregano.
For those of you who don’t quite get the “Hey Grandpa, What’s for supper reference, this may help. Apparently the actually footage doesn’t exist out there, but this is close enough
