Pork Medallions in Cream Sauce

1:41 am by

This picture does not do the dish justice – it was awesome, and even the kids loved it!

I picked up some pork sirloin roasts at Costco today (such an awesome price, & Costco meat is always premium), along with a few beef roasts. Which to make for dinner? I opted for sirloin – but not roast, oh no. Let’s shake it up a little!

Book Review: Creative Cooking for Colitis

4:25 pm by

This week’s book review is “Creative Cooking for Colitis,” written by Angela Breidenbach (yay for Angelas!). I’m pleased to know Angela as a fellow writer and member of the American Christian Fiction Writers group, and she offered a preview of the book, available on CD or as a PDF download.

First, a little bit about colitis. Our good buddies over at Wikipedia define colitis as “an inflammation¬† of the colon and is often used to describe an inflammation of the large intestine,” with symptoms that include abdominal pain, loss of appetite, fatigue, diarrhea, cramping and bloating. Angela herself suffered from six months of constant illness caused by microscopic colitis. “Everything I ate hurt and caused embarrassing results,” and Angela developed depression on top of the painful problems.

Phoning it in

7:10 pm by

Day three of getting back into a regular running schedule with Megs, and I am sore-sore-sore. She is also sore-sore-sore. Our usual walk a bit/run a lot/chat the whole time turned in walk/moan/chat/run briefly/moan/walk/chat. Plus my foot (from the injury LAST YEAR) was screaming with pain.

So we parted – she for a mammogram appointment and I for a weights workout. I was feeling really bad for her, having to get the girls squished while I was just gonna push some iron around. Now, I think I got the rougher end of the deal.

I decided to forgo my usual weights routine (a modification of the Body-for-Life superset pyramid) and try out Jillian Michaels: No More Trouble Zones. A 50-minute routine of pure weights. Oh, and with a side of torture.

What a Crock! – The Whole Bird

7:49 pm by

So far, I’ve made about 10,000 versions of Sunday Roast Chicken, including the Barefoot Contessa’s version (a family favorite). Each time, Mr Lici says I’ve outdone myself. Until the next time, when I apparently outdo¬† myself again. Last night’s whole crockpot chicken was another feast of “mmm… yummm… holy cow, just one more piece… this is really good!” Even the boys devoured their drumsticks.
