Chevre and Mushroom Zucchini Boats

Such a good last minute idea!

Today I’ve left the house 3 times, washed and folded 3 loads of laundry, done 2 loads of dishes, made burgers, potato salad, guacamole, these puppies and banana bread.


So in the interest of my sanity I wasn’t going to post this.

But since it was SO good, and I had some okay lighting, posted it is!

Beef Dip – Easy Peasy Au Jus Squeezy

So. delicious!


Now, beef dip is best If you’ve made a gorgeous medium rare roast, and have sliced it paper thin with a meat slicer. But I don’t have these privileges. (I did when I worked in catering, and oh man. It was AWESOMEE!)

Pork Chops with Porcini and Button Mushroom Gravy


Last night’s dinner was sort of last minute. I had some pork chops brining and in the fridge for a day. I was planning on making them the previous night, but ended up going for Pho with my parents, and was home too late to cook. Then last night, we were up in the air whether or not to go out for dinner and drinks, and just forget about the pork chops all together (sorry guys!). But, since I was still feeling a little under the weather from my flu, I decided that drinks may only aggravate it, and we decided to stay in!

I had the pork chops in a super simple brine, of salt water and garlic. I sent Michael a text on how to do it as he was home early, and could get it started. I like brining with more herbs and spices, but we were low and it’s pretty hard to explain how to, to someone who doesn’t cook, over text message.
