Made another fire yesterday but it didnt get so hot. I didnt shut down the vents.

Trying to think of what to do with the pork chops I got out. Dont want to fry, or bbq.
Maybe I'll just throw them in the oven. I dunno. (they are boneless, and thick)
any easy ideas???
What about stuffing them? I used to stuff them with just stove top, in a pan saute sweet onions in olive oil and balsamic vinegar, put onions on top of stuffed chops and put provolone cheese then bake for like 45 minutes on 350-375. OMG totally delish. Probably very fattening but so worth it!!! Side salad or spinach something light!!!

Does anyone ever cook with Parchment Paper? I have been seeing some very interesting recipes for parchment paper bundles, I think that's right. I'm tempted but kind of wondering if any of my fellow wanna be gourmets have any thoughts on this???

No, I have managed to not have an interest in that.

I am getting ready to put my 1st batch of fall collard greens on the stove.

I use chicken broth instead of water, a huge chopped onion, fresh garlic, tons of fresh ground black pepper and a generous splash cider vinegar.

Oops.

Yeah, today I added 6 slices of bacon and am going to add some ham nearer time to eat.

The best I remember is adding 1# of hot ground sausage, raw, on top of the greens at the very beginning of cooking; stirring as the green cook down. I just didn't remember that until just now, but will buy sausage next week when I buy more greens.

I also just added 2 potatoes cut into 1/4s to steam onto of the greens.

Parchment paper is quite lovely to cook with. It doesn't stick to things (or they don't stick to it) you can make airtight bundles, you can protect sheet pans, you can get cakes out of cake pans.....all sorts of good things.

My absolute favorite (and it's so simple I nearly cried when I first tried it) is simply a chunk of salmon and some cream cheese flavored with a little lemon juice, your preferred amount of garlic, some oregano, salt, pepper etc. (or if you want, you can buy that expensive Alouette cheese, but this tastes as good and costs about 1/8th of what that does.) Put the salmon in the middle of a sheet of parchment paper, cut a circle that will fold over the chunk and leave a big margin. Start folding 3/4 of an inch-long bits, starting at one and and working toward the other. Like making a hand pie. If it doesn't feel steam-proof enough, you can do another set of folds.

Cook at your usual temps in the oven - this all does depend on the thickness of the fish - and, because I loved serving this to guests, leave it closed, slip each one on a plate, add whatever sides you have cooked, and give it to 'em. They can slice it open themselves, and this lovely burst of fragrance comes right at their noses.

If you don't want the garlicky flavor, it's really good with sliced oranges atop the chunk of fish, a little orange juice in the packet, and whatever other spices you want to add - red pepper, soy sauce or anything else you tend to adore.

The few things I saw looked so pretty and good I'm not a Salmon eater, but I do like some other fish. I just loved that the clean up was easy!!!

Well its that horrible time of year when nothing seems to go right when I am trying to plan for the holidays!!! But I shopped till I dropped over the weekend, so I am done with the stores for at least a week!!! Got a great deal on spiral ham at Aldi's!! Now I just have to do a few sides. I've been baking cookies and am sick from the smell of them!!! I finally found the cookie bags I wanted!!! I have like 20 neighbors in my apartment complex that I am giving cookies to so I have been busy and very tired!!! I hate stressing about this stuff but it keeps me from getting depressed about Andy, and missing him so much. The holiday's are awful and I just miss him more now then ever.

Oh, I hear you on the cookies! I used to bake about 15 different kinds, double and triple and quadruple batches, and they were all put, at one time or another, in a 'cookie chest' that stayed in the barn, so all the riders and lesson people and anyone else on the estate would come in and nosh. Kept me busy!
