Sunday Stills: Something Hot!

I got luck and pestered my mum on Saturday morning for these shots while she was making Chorizo and Egg burritos…nice and HOT!

She is the best cook I know and I have been gorging myself the last few days on her fantastic homecooked food..:-)

First we have the heating element on the stove..

Sunday Stills: Ethnic Food

Well, I did’nt get to anyplace exciting this week but I did get to try Chipotle and it was’nt too bad, even if it was a bit pricey. The Burrito Bowl was excellent with all the goodies all piled in a bowl and no tortilla, but I made up for that with the chips and salsa. The second entree was a quick stop at a Subway for a pepperoni pizza whick is’nt too bad either for a quick meal..:-)


One of my favorite places..

Lil’ Porgy’s BBQ!!! Since 1981 this has been my favorite place for sliced pork sandwiches in the U.S. I remember when I was a teenager one of my best friends worked there and I was totally jealous. Even to this day I get homesick for this place where I grew up in Urbana Illinois and can’t wait to eat there and shotgun a cup of mix sauce for old times, meaning, yes I drink a cup of mix sauce straight. In my mind Lil’ Porgy’s isn’t about the meat, its all in the sauce..:-)))

Something new for Dinner

Well its been two weeks of blissful vacation and getting my health back in check after finding I have high blood sugar and am a Diabetic. Thanks to Metformin and moms healthy cooking I have dropped my numbers significantly and even lost a few pounds, and my blood pressure has dropped due to no stress and decent diet. So Monday I go in for my DOT physical and will get back on the road hopefully Tuesday..YIPPEEE!!!
Here is a new for me dish mom made a couple of days ago and one she made when I was a kid, stuffed bell peppers! These were stugged with turkey, brown rice and veggies and topped with cheese and a slice of tomato and baked in the oven..DELISH!! And for desert….Strawberry/Blueberries on Sugar free angelfood cake and topped with sugar free CoolWHip.. The last pic is for my Dad and Sarah D, my fellow “Family Guy” Fans and anyone else who gets it…:-)))
