Somebody out there please help me feel a little less sheepish…
Please tell me I’m not the only one who has an extremely difficult time salting her own ear of corn. Honestly.
Sweet Tooth Courtney Fun Fact: I’m 99% positive that I continued to make my mom or dad salt my corn on the cob for me up until I moved out of their house. I moved out when I was 24.
And I have no shame. It’s just so darn tough to see the little salt granules blend in with those beautiful white and yellow kernels.
Alright, you get the idea. But really…I’m not the only one, right?
Tonight’s corn on the cob was quite possibly the stand out of dinner. I just love eating the stuff. However, the roasted potatoes I cooked up weren’t half bad either. Heck, either were the canned beets that I whipped out last minute.
Unfortunately, the main dish only turned out to be ho-hum. I had high hopes for the Skillet Pork Chop Sauté with Peaches recipe I came across while browsing through an old Cooking Light magazine this afternoon.
I will say that the peaches and sauce were absolutely delicious; even the seasoning for the pork chops was great so I’m not blaming its lameness on the recipe. I either…
a) Need to learn how to cook pork chops in a skillet, or,
b) Had said pork chops in my freezer for way too long (as in, over a year…yikes)
I’ll blame it on the latter, seeing as though it can’t be that hard to cook some pork chops in a skillet, right? Well, whatever the reason, they were basically like little rocks and not very appealing to the eye OR the taste buds.
Jay and I both ate about half of the chops but devoured the peaches. Luckily, there’s still a bunch of peaches leftover (I tossed the rest of the chops) that I think will go amazingly well in a salad tomorrow. MmmmmHMM!
Question for the Evening:
What fun facts about yourself do you have no shame for?
