Good 57º cloudy supposed to get rain and thunderboomers morning. We have a parade in town and a 'fair', there are outdoor weddings planned this weekend, and a craft fair in GP. Let's hope the rain holds off!
Last night at 6pm it was just a few puffy little clouds... and the sun actually shown through at 7:30!
Yesterday there was more excitement than I can even describe. I cooked a chicken in the crockpot for Maggie, called the vet re Maggie's meds, fed my critters, and went to see Derrick at the Spectrum Orthotics to get my shoe inserts.....
They are wayyyyyyyyy more comfortable than the ones I bought off the shelf. With the orthotics inserted in my tennis shoes I had to show him how I walked, stood on my toes, and he said, "Can you walk on your heels with your toes up?" NO. Then he laughed and said, "Put that on your blog." Oh Derrick. You are a nut. But, I like you! Call Brian. The forms for the orthotics were taken in foam and filled with a cement of kind. He gave me the forms. Talk about heavy. Now I'm supposed to keep these if/when a problem occurs with the fit. Swell. Something else to find a place for!
Then to the GP Albertsons. I love shopping there. Everything is so fresh and fun and they have a bakery section bar none. I bought a red velvet chocolate torte with cream cheese... OMG! It is sooooooooooooo good!!!! I paced myself though and only had one piece!!! Gadz, that was hard to do.

Ok, now how about a simple recipe I have made a zillion times... Sue's Best & Jerry's Favorite Pork Chops....
pork chops, bone in
Place chops in deep frying pan and just cover with water. Sprinkle on lemon pepper. Turn heat to medium high and cook, turning occasionally, until water has all evaporated. Add several tablespoons of olive oil, sprinkle on more lemon pepper. Turn heat to medium and fry, turning until both sides are well browned. This should take about an hour total cooking time. They will be moist and crisp! Serve with Polish Noodles. (recipe tomorrow)
All I know. Nuff said. Rogue River Rooster Crow this weekend .. the parade this morning. On my way out the door...
