Brag Monday?

Don't you just love it when a thrown together dinner works?

I had some lovely thick pork chops but wanted to cook them in such a way as to not dry them out.

First I browned them in olive oil after coating them in seasoned flour.
Then I threw half a box of Orzo into a greased dish. I added 1.5 cups water and a packed of onion soup mix, laid the chops on top, covered with foil et hour later dinner was ready.

I had made a bit of pear/apple sauce this morning , I steamed some cabbage and it tasted DELISH!

Ok, pursuant to my last post about my secret mission, I wanted to show you what my loot looked like.

 Not too shabby eh?


Now I was hoping to complete a project for Brag Monday chez The Graphics Fairy, but I have just spent the last hour helping Mr. Shabby download Picasa. Then I showed him how he could play with pics in Picnik. Then we had to figure out where his pictures were being saved from some email and how to find them again.
Yada yada yada...........

So here is my petit project pour Brag Monday. Needless to say, my computer did not want to print out on the velum so that caused some frustration until I taped it to another piece of paper and 'helped' it through the printer.

 I also used my very last piece of shrink plastic to print out some skull ear rings. The ink smeared....grrr. I may show you those tomorrow.

TTFN it is time to watch House now.


  1. Hi Anne,
