All Consuming Blizzard-Ache


I know I said I’d be trying to post more, but it was taking a while for people to make the switch with me from Blogger to WordPress, which btw I love … and will love more once I can figure out how to add my blogroll to it. In all honesty though, I haven’t been trying very hard to figure that out.

Tv this week.  Monday was HIMYM, 2.5 Men, The Big Bang Theory, Heroes, CSI: Miami, Castle and Life Unexpected.  Tuesday was NCIS, NCIS: LA, LOST, White Collar, The Forgotten and The Good Wife.  Wednesday was Human Target, Criminal Minds, Ugly Betty, Psych, and Leverege. 

I have an all consuming headache tonight, so I just have a funny pic to post … before that though … if you’re not reading this blog:

SleepTalkinMan

ஜ~§The Question Of The Day§~ஜ

Is there any character from a novel or film that serves as a role model to you? What kind of advice do you think she or he would give you regarding any major issues you’re facing right now?

A Patch of Old Snow

There’s a patch of old snow in a corner
That I should have guessed
Was a blow-away paper the rain
Had brought to rest.

It is speckled with grime as if
Small print overspread it,
The news of a day I’ve forgotten —
If I ever read it.

Robert Frost

ஜ~§Recipe Of The Day§~ஜ

Lemon-and-Herb Rubbed Pork Chops

Ingredients:
4 teaspoons minced garlic (about 8 cloves)
1-1/2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried sage, crushed
1/2 teaspoon pepper
4 pork loin chops, cut 1-1/4 inches thick

Preparation:
For rub, combine the garlic, lemon peel, rosemary, salt, sage, and pepper. Trim fat from meat. Rub mixture onto both sides of each pork chop.

For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan in a grill that has a cover. Test for medium heat above pan. Place chops on grill rack directly over the pan. Cover and grill, turning once, until an instant-read thermometer inserted in center of a chop registers 160 degrees F and juices run clear (35 to 40 minutes).

For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium and adjust for indirect cooking. Place chops on grill rack; and grill as above. Makes 4 servings.

    First, I missed ya 😀

    As far as your blogroll goes, the only way I’ve been able to figure out how to do it is to add them individually under “links”. You can make a link category…blogroll or whatnot and then add that widget to your sidebar.

    I’ll have to check out your friends blog. You know I LOVE cooking blogs. If I like her lots, I’ll add her to my sidebar on MY COOKBOOK

    The cartoon was too funny 😀
