    We had a change of plans last night. So, tonight is the garlic and herb pork loin. Sides are rosemary oven roasted potatoes and what ever side I can find in the freezer.

    Garnertoy, whenever I hear about a BLT, I always think "oh, we should have those for dinner - they are so good", and then I totally forget. Thanks for the reminder. :)

    RFB - Happy Birthday to your DH. Your fried chicken sounds wonderful!

    Last night ended up being spaghetti with meat sauce for dinner. An interesting addition to the sauce was the veg (carrots, celery, red onion, parsley) I had added to the pot of chicken stock I was making in the slow cooker. I pureed all the cooked veg in the food processor, and added it to the spaghetti sauce. DW told me it was one of the best sauces I had made. I've done this as an addition to beef gravy previously, and it was really good.

    Not sure about tonight. The BLTs sound really good. I had planned to make vichysoisse with the chicken stock, so maybe soup and sandwiches, but that will be for tomorrow so the soup has time to chill.
