    Default Dinner tonight (no super bowl stuff going on)

    Braised pork chops
    (I don't measure much so amounts are approx)

    5 boneless pork chops about 3/4" thick
    Whole large onion
    Head of garlic
    Several potatoes, peeled and cubed
    Olive oil
    S&P
    Spaghetti sauce (can use tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, whatever you have)
    Chicken stock
    1 lb raw spinach

    S&P the chops and then brown them in a dutch oven in the olive oil. Set
    aside
    Chop the onion and garlic and brown in the hot oil left in the dutch oven
    Add the cubed potatoes and simmer until potatoes start to soften
    Add the spaghetti sauce and chicken stock to cover the veggies
    Bring to simmer and lower the temp and place the chops in a layer over the
    vegs
    Pile in the raw spinach on top of the chops, cover and simmer until the
    spinach wilts and cooks (about 20 minutes to steam and simmer the chops and
    finish cooking the potatoes)

    I sort of made this up as I went along using a googled recipe as a starter
    then added the spinach and spaghetti sauce. It was quite tasty and I have
    lots of leftovers.

    That really sounds good. :-)

    Personally, most of my cooking is "made up as I go along".
    Works for me most of the time. <lol>

    I ended up with a chicken and veggie medley tonight. I was going to
    cook Saturday but ended up having to deal with that guinea hen, so I
    cooked Sunday instead.

    Used the tabletop roaster and a roasting pan:

    3lbs. carrots sliced into 1" or so chunks. Mixed in two small cans of
    whole water chestnuts. Sprinkled some salt free lemon pepper and garlic
    powder over them along with some dried and ground lemon peel.

    Topped that with 4 lbs. of chicken drumsticks. Sprinkled those
    liberally with more SF lemon pepper, garlic and onion powder and a light
    sprinkling of dried thyme.

    Over the top of that layer, I sliced up some onions into rings and a few
    large ribs of celery, sliced into about 1/2" thick slices.

    Roasted at 350 for 2 hours.

    This will last us a few days and I ended up with 2 cups of roasted
    chicken/veggie stock in the bottom of the roasting pan. :-) I'll make
    some gravy out of it later today by adding some corn starch to it.
    Should go well over the veggies.
