find inspiration in the unlikeliest places. For example,
while listening to the radio in the morning I heard
that Kroger had a sale on pork chops for $1.50 a pound.
Shoot, yeah! So I got 4 pounds of swineflesh - of course
the sale was only on family packs - and I made My Mom's Pork Chops
and served 'em over rice.
I was also inspired by prices to get some collard
greens. Not because they were on sale, but the other
greens were priced so high. So I got this huge bunch
of green leaves, and... how do I cook them? Every recipe
I Googled up called for hamhocks. Oddly enough, I don't
have pig ankles in my fridge. So, what the heck,
I just made some boiled
collard greens, same as I do with other greens,
and ate it with mayonnaise. Not bad, but I wouldn't
mind finding some more interesting ways to prepare the
stuff. Finally, up top I have some mini-carrots and
fudge. No recipe for the fudge, unfortunately, as it
was given to me at a very belated Christmas party.
