If you’ve read any of this blog, you know I love to cook. However, I am blessed with a wife who makes great food. She Who Must Be Obeyed spoiled me rotten and made an incredible meal. Orange Chicken, her incredible creamy coleslaw, broccoli salad and baked potatoes. Sell my clothes, I think I’ve gone to heaven. Continue reading Orange Chicken In A Claypot
She Who Must Be Obeyed wanted spareribs. She threw a frozen rack on the counter first thing in the morning. You intrepid hero took things in hand and put the ribs on a heavy pot that has been turned over. This is a quick way to defrost items as the pot is an excellent conductor of heat and has a large surface area. Continue reading Smoked Spareribs, No Foil

Since I have retired, She Who Must Be Obeyed and I have had a lot more time together, a very good thing. We have been developing a whole new set of traditions. For example, we have home made pizza on the day I retired.

Then it calls for a pudding mix to be added which means that it has way too much sugar. Then it is drizzled with a sugar glaze which means it should be served with a side of insulin.

I apologize for not posting for a couple of days but the weather has been fine and I could not resist spending time on the deck with She Who Must Be Obeyed. It is so nice we’ve had a few warmer days.

I love Pork Chop Cordon Bleu but it is like trying to stop the tides to keep the cheese in the chicken breasts so I decided to try something different. I would use thin slices of cheese on top of the chops and keep it back from the edges. I hoped by doing this, the cheese wouldn’t be thick enough to flow off the chops.
