Well, today has been a very good day. I have finished the wash, just need to fold another load and we'll be set for a couple of days. The kids actually fought over who would get to steam clean the carpets so I let them fight it out and do the work.lol I did help by vacuuming after the carpet dried but really they did all the work. I took the littles outside for some fresh air and play time. It's been warm the past couple of days, so I've been trying to take advantage of it as often as I can. It topped 80 degrees today! This is the kind of weather I like. Not too hot, not cold and yucky.lol

I'm making a blend of two different recipes for dinner tonight. Heavenly Porkchops w/buttered noodles, asparagus, and salad. Hopefully the Porkchops will taste good. I didn't actually read the recipe from Queenbee's blog, thought I could wing it(LOL) and ended up with white sauce instead of a dough-like substance so I just figured I'd combine Heavenly Chicken together with the porkchops. It looks good and smells wonderful so I'm guessing I didn't ruin it.lol

I got this salad dressing recipe off of the Sonlight forums and am going to make it tomorrow. It sounds really good and of course high in fat.lol

Creamy Bacon Salad Dressing

6 sl bacon, cooked and chopped
1/4 c onion, finely chopped (may substitute green onions or chives)
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c cider vinegar
1 c water

Cook onions, sugar, vinegar, and water. Cool. Add 4 c of mayo (large jar) and mix well. Yield 1 1/2-2 qts.The original recipe calls for 10 slices of bacon, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 1/2 cups of water, instead of the amounts given. Doing it this way makes the yield closer to the 2 qt mark.

From Vincennes University School of Culinary Arts by way of Ezekiel's Garden on the SL boards.

She says it's better than Ranch dressing and since Evie's allergic to ranch I've been looking for something that might work. I'll let you all know if it's any good!

Blessings,

Lisa

Mmm, Lisa, your pork chops sound great. We tried the recipe last month and really liked it!
