Can you handle the pork?!

2 inch thick pork loin stuffed with fresh bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, and thyme.

Some veggies on the side too 😉

(Ignore my no make up at all face, LOL)

Has anybody seen a slab of pork bigger than these?! (Besides the Neely’s from Food Network…)

Yesterday Jimmy’s Dad and I created a scrumptious dinner! He picked out the recipe and provided the meat + peeled the potatoes and carrots. I created the bread crumb stuffing, cut the veggies, stuffed the pork, whipped up some gravy, and created a salad.

We made pork. And it was good.

What is your take on pork? I know a lot of people don’t eat it because of its sodium or fat content. I don’t typically like the specific taste of pork, but with gravy, ketchup, or mustard, it’s allll goood 😉

Bible Verse of the day:

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

I also promised pictures of the snow storm from Thursday night onto Friday morning. I had an enjoyable time driving to school :

I put my 4 wheel drive in and still slid all over, way to get the adrenaline rushing early in the morning! Woo!

My farmers almanac predicted the storm

The Farmers Almanac is almost always right

Yes.. I am 18 years old and I read the Old Farmers Almanac

Do you own a copy?!

🙂

Have a great day!


My life in 30 days, day 22

My life in 30 days, day 22 = a picture of  something you wish you were better at.

I wish I was better at cycling.

I really try to like it and I try to do my best but it just doesn’t work out so well. I was recently in a triathlon and I would have done much better if I had better biking skills! My neighbor let me use his legit bike after the triathlon. You know, the kind where you clip your shoes in. Yeah… I toppled. A lot. It made me mad. But I eventually got used to it. I still wish I was better!!

If I knew more I would be more confident about becoming a cycling instructor. I am seriosuly considering it because I love spin class, so why not teach it? Then I remember… I know nothing about bikes!

Eventually I will take the risk and get certified though 🙂 Either that or become an aerobics instructor, yoga teacher, aqua aerobics instructor, or personal trainer. Very exciting!! Until then, I will dream about being better at biking 😉

After my triathlon in July 2010! You know, after everyone passed me on their bikes ..!)

Okay time for a lil food post!

What have I been up to in the kitchen?

I made a cheese a veggie wrap with tomato soup just the other day 🙂

Here are some of the contents of the wrap:

Eggplant, mushrooms, tomatoes, onion, peas, green beans, green peppers, and zucchini, spinach, and finally my favorite: CHEESE! (mozzarella to be precise)

All grilled up. Then in my belly in like 5 seconds flat. ❤ It was nice and chewy with half cooked veggies but crispy at the same time because it was grilled. My favorite part is when a big string of cheese hangs from my mouth to the wrap. (Can you tell I ❤ cheese?!)

Friday night I decided to be classic and wake up early to make my grandmothers meatball recipe! With chunky tomato sauce and lots of italian spices. (Such as oregano and basil… also crushed red pepper flakes for some zing!)

Because the tomato sauce cooked ALL day long, the natural sweetness of the tomatoes came out and made it very yummy. The spices balanced out the sweetness so that it wasn’t TOO sweet. It was nice to have chunks of mushroom, tomato, and onion in with the sauce for texture.

Here are the meatballs:

A very plain recipe. 1lb or ground meat (your choice-pork, veal, chicken, beef, turkey, or a combo) with 1/4 cup of bread crumbs, 1Tbs of flour, 1tsp of garlic salt, an one small onion chopped finely. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes! (Makes about 12-15 meat balls depending on the size you prefer).

The dinner was paired with spaghetti and of course a salad. Like I said, classic! Classic food is typically simple and simple is always good. (Mostly?!) The meat balls were so simple that I could actually taste meat and a hint of garlic, very soft as well.

It was a nice Friday night dinner. Tonight I am going to a RV show with my boy and his dad, should be interesting!!

Have a nice Saturday!

What do you wish you were better at?
