Happy Recipe Thursday, everyone!
(I just made that up)
I was thinking about all of you the other night
as I was making dinner.
One of the very hardest things
I run into with meal-making is coming
up with side-dishes.
And clean forks.
And any shred of motivation
to walk into my kitchen.
as I was scrambling to put something with my pork chops,
I eyed me some apples.
"How 'bout them apples?"
I said to myself.
So I got to work.
I am a lifeless shrew without my cutting board
and butcher knife.
With some orange juice.
Added brown sugar, cinnamon, honey, and cranberries.
And chocolate chips.
Simmer, simmer for about 15 minutes.
And once again,
I saved the day.
Oh how my family admires me.
(Actually, I'm not sure they noticed I was even there)
It's these little things in life that
make me say,
"Wow Lori, you are quite the culinary genius."
(I am delusional, I know.)
