    Re: What's on the menu this evening?

    Tomorrow night I'm going to roast a pork loin thingy, and I've got some acorn squash. That just sounded like Halloween to me.

    I read somewhere that Halloween night is one of the biggest pizza selling nights of the year. I guess rushing around to get their little trick or treaters ready, parents don't have time to make dinner and just order a pizza instead.

    For the 2 little ones in my house, dinosaur shaped chicken nuggets and tater tots for dinner. Halloween decorated cupcakes and then trick or treating. Then a nice glass of wine for me when I get home..

    That's what it used to be here. Or we'd eat at my sister's. Now the kids either don't go out, or go out on their own. So I can cook.

    I usually make a fun dessert, but I forgot to get the ingredients when I was out tonight. Stupid!

    We'll probably get pizza tomorrow night. The pizza place is across the street from our street.

    Speaking of Pork, any hints on Chops? I have the skills but no recipe. I cook for 1 (maybe 2) and would love an easy recipe.

    For easy chops in the oven, Shake and Bake works well.Just follow box directions. Boneless chops are good to use. Or marinate pork chops in italian dressing and pan fry until no longer pink in center.

    Those are a lot of fun to make. My new favorite: Creamy Pumpkin Dip

    In a large bowl, beat together (using a handmixer on medium)
    1 pkg. cream cheese
    cup sour cream
    2 cups powdered sugar

    Add (using handmixer on low)
    1-15oz can pumpkin

    Then add (again, on low)
    1 TBSP frozen oj concentrate
    1 TBSP cinnamon

    Chill for an hour and use graham cracker sticks or ginger snaps for dipping. You will NOT be disappointed.

    I like having it but it isn't costing an arm and a leg the way we buy it. It's choice beef though that I cut to the thickness we like. Get it at Costco and trim it myself. Freeze it in our garage freezer.

    Oh boy. Don't like the sound of that though if it is being delivered. I'd hate being a driver delivering the pizza because of the little kids that aren't being carfull crossing streets and such.

    Don't like those guarantee 30 minute places on a night like halloween. Some of the younger drivers could be pressing and haven't had enough driving time put-in in their lives to know how different a night like this is ... and just slow down. Looking for an address and all while scooting along could result in something no one wants to have happen.

    Since I'll be spending 12 straight hours on-campus today (ugh) I'll probably be having dinner at Chick-Fil-A

    I was looking for a recipe my aunt mentioned to me a couple weeks back and I found this in an article.

    The best way to cook chops and be sure they will remain juicy is to fry them. Rub them first with oil, garlic, freshly ground pepper and thyme. Heat vegetable or peanut oil in a heavy frying pan and sear the chops. Then lower the temperature and cook them until they are done. Season with salt just before serving. Braising a one-inch pork chop takes about 15 minutes, a two-inch chop about 25 minutes.

    Sounds good and seems simple.
    Life is a Waste of Time, Time is a Waste of Life, so let's get Wasted all the Time, and have the Time of our Lives

    It's not about the destination. It's about the journey.

    I'm going to try that today. I'm leaving work early because it's so dead here. I'll stop at the store and get the ingredients!

    It came out great. My husband is going to love it. He's a big pumpkin pie freak.

    I got graham cracker dippers for it

    I hope it keeps...I'm too full to have it tonight.

    I made a pork loin roast, mashed potatoes, and acorn squash and it was all out of this world.
