I slept well again last night. Maybe my problem with sleeplessness is over...I hope.
I may buy the new Hoover vacuum sweeper I looked at the other day. I had borrowed the one at the church and used it on Friday morning. I took it back yesterday. Bob opened it and dumped out a half canister of cat hair, etc. Evidently my old Concept II Hoover sweeper has not been doing as good a job as I thought. That Hoover, the best buy in the Consumer's Report, is only $99. I may go up there and get it this morning. I vacuum every week and there should not have been all that cat hair still in the carpet.
Today for lunch I will fix some pork I had frozen several weeks ago. I will fix it in the oven. We will have boiled potatoes with it and a veggie. Bob will bring a salad. I will have cupcakes for dessert. I will bake my cake for the dinner at the Christian Church today and save some of the batter for our cupcakes.
Missy wants to go outside this morning but it's still dark out there. We will try to go out about 7:00. It's only 6:35 now.
I went to town awhile ago and got my flu shot. I certainly hope this one is of more value then last year's. Luckily I didn't get the flu last year but it sure isn't because I had the flu shot. I'm just basically healthy.
It's almost time to put my pork in the oven. This is a pretty easy recipe. You start with two pieces of boneless pork and rub it with olive oil. Then you dip it in a mixture of a cup of Parmesan cheese, a cup of Italian bread crumbs, a half teaspoon of powered garlic and a half teaspoon of pepper. You make sure the pork is covered well. Press it on the meat well. You put it in a baking pan that is foil lined and sprayed with olive or canola oil. (I generally use corning ware) Then you bake it at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. That's all you do. I am fixing boiled potatoes and a veggie with it and we will finish up Bob's applesauce instead of a salad. I made cup cakes this morning so we will have them for dessert.
Here are my boneless baked pork chops ready to go into the oven.
The pork turned out well although it wasn't as tender as I would have liked. I went on to work after cleaning up from lunch.
