Tasty Tuesday

It was noticeably 20 degrees cooler on Tuesday. I took the trash out and then drove to work with the window up.

I still walked outside, but I walked faster, LOL!

I went Newburgh Grill for lunch. I got a cup of split pea soup and the grilled ham and cheese. Then I went next door to CVS and bought some more hydrogen peroxide.

The sun was out, off and on, but it only got to 62 degrees, with a wind.

Back home, I retrieved the trash can and the mail. I noticed the daffodils I planted last fall had finally bloomed, so I grabbed the camera and took a picture for you.

Back inside and at the kitchen window, I was again struck by how pretty that tree out back was. I was disappointed in the picture I took before. I realized it looked better from the house than it did close up (something about the light when viewed from far away). So, I took another one from the patio with a little zoom (mostly to fill up the frame).

Back inside, I changed clothes and got to work. I believe I've mentioned how dirty the house had become from me working outside. So, I got to down to it!

First I dusted, then I vacuumed.  I had to empty the vacuum twice because of the cat hair!

I moved all the kitchen chairs into the living room and swept the kitchen floor. I was going to get a bucket and wash it, but by then it was after 7:00 p.m. and I was hungry.

So, I warmed up Michelle's French pork chop with cabbage. It was an excellent combination that I would have never thought of! Also, the chop was the best breaded one I think I ever ate!!!

I watched both new NCIS and NCIS New Orleans and then went to bed.


  1. Pretty tree...crab apple or cherry?
    What was different about the pork chop?

  2. I don't remember the name of the tree, sorry. The pork chop was seared and then baked in a casserole with the seasoned cabbage, Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Excellent!

  3. Tree does look better from that angle (and without the trash).
