What's For Supper

Since I have not seen Avery since Christmas, I havent had much to take pictures of lately with my new camera. So I decided to do a recipe post and show you what we had for dinner. A week or so ago we ate lunch at a local restaurant. - {Nikkis} They have a great 'home cooked' lunch buffet. So that day they had this potato dish that was really good. I asked the cook what was in them and I made my version of them with my dinner tonight. Our pretty healthy menu was:

GRILLED PORK CHOPS
PAN POTATOES
CUCUMBER TOMATO SALAD
CRESCENT ROLLS

Marinate the boneless chops in olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, Tony Chacheres, & ground pepper. Then grill to perfection!
Then for the Cucumber Salad - Just peel and slice the cucumbers 2 or 3, and add grape tomatoes. Add Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Stir together and allow to sit for a little bit.
For the Pan Potatoes you peel and slice the potatoes. Slice and chop a Red Bell Pepper, and a Green Bell Pepper. Slice Onion and sautee all in a small amount of vegetable oil. Add a good amount of paprika to color the potatoes. Add salt, and cayenne pepper to taste. (I actually forgot the cayenne tonight. I knew something was missing but they were still really good. Next time I will do the cayenne.)
So after that I ate another piece of Joshuas birthday cake.
(HAPPY 17TH BIRTHDAY JOSH)

Hope your dinner was good too. Now this time tomorrow I will most assuredly be taking pictures of AVERY GRACE. Don't worry I am sure I will post some of them.

Grilled Porkchops, Fresh Green Beans in Garlic Butter Sauce and Sweet Potato Casserole with Biscuits and Sweet Tea. No birthday cake here :( Guess we'll make up for that in a few weeks. #3 - you are SUCH a rock star going jogging every morning. Between you and Oprah I am finally starting to feel inspired! :) And finally, #4 - Avery & I can't wait to see y'all tomorrow (oh yes, and charlie too, of course!)
