Not so bad

April 29, 2007

Cooking, Journal, Lauren

We’ve been experimenting with food left and right lately.   I finally got to use the Baker’s Edge pan for a roast, and I wish I could say it all turned out perfectly.  This was my first experience cooking pork tenderloin, and I wasn’t thinking that it would take less time than a regular piece of meat.  Anyway, the meat turned out pretty awesome (thank, Mrs. Dash!), but the vegetables were kinda crunchy.  Potatoes shouldn’t be crunchy unless they’re chips, and ‘chips’ is a dirty word around here.

Lloyd’s been making salads (trying to be as cool as Brad).  This is his latest creation – lettuce, strawberries, chopped pecans (avocado on mine) and dressed with lemon juice.  It is surprisingly tasty!

A 81% great meal, with only 4% of your RDA of salt.

    I had a yummy Don Pablos chicken caesar last night with roasted pecans and no pico de gallo. It was so good that I made noises eating it! I love salads when someone else makes them for me! I also made noises while drinking my side dish -- a nice margarita. Ha!

    Oops -- forgot to ask. Lloyd -- how are you feeling? When do you return to school? I think you could lessen the stress on your heart if you got a hair cut. What do you think?

      I’ve been a little tired, but that could be from not doing anything. And the various spots where they poked me are a little sore, but other than that I feel fine.

      I’m going back to school tomorrow, but don’t intend to do anything other than teach, and I can do all that sitting down. I’m going to bow out of supervising breaks and lunch and after school and any other occation when 7th graders are not sitting down.
