Week in review: 5/10/2012

May 11, 2012 § 5 Comments

This week, we battled with a recuperating cat, who did not want to be inside.  He escaped a few times when we opened an outside door, and I had to go find him.  He was actually pretty good behavior-wise for most of the week.

Our friend Cheryl came over and cooked us dinner one night.  She made chicken with olives and artichoke hearts.  We’ll be sharing the recipe with you when she gives it to us.  

The workers continued with their efforts to raise the level of our back pasture.  This is what greeted me when I arrived home from work yesterday.  We’ve been working on this pasture for several months now.  The three solitary trees you see were transplanted from our front fenceline to their new location in the pasture.

We made Wuppenif’s pork chops again.  We had them last week, and liked them so much Dave insisted that we have them again for dinner last night.   They really are just that good, and are already one of our go-to meals.  Mushrooms aren’t called for in the original recipe, but they do add a nice extra touch.  I also think that you could use chicken breasts, pounded thin, instead of the pork chops.  The sauce is our favorite part of the dish, and it is so easy to make.

    My God … you have some land .. to work !!!!!!!! How is the poor Chief today??? You don’t him inside and he doesn’t want to be inside – at least you have that in common. *laughter. Like the look of the pork chops – one of my favorite meats (lamb & pork) – and I love it with mus trad – so I will try it. Have some lovely chops in the freezer – wish you both and all pets and wild animals – even slim jim – a great weekend.

    Thanks for the shout out Libby; I’ve so enjoyed the shared love of that pork chop recipe! Just back after two weeks away, so I have a lot of catching up to do. Looking forward to reading your latest posts. Right now I’m off to catch some sleep!
