  Whoa, Deja Vu
So I had the day off, so I got to do the gas price run. Found it the same price everywhere, but decided to get my whopping 3 cents off by showing my grocery receipt. So I head to the grocery store. On my list, only one thing...snow peas. So in I go. After about 20 minutes and running into a woman who shops at the store I work at, I go to check out. What do I buy? A DVD, a pound of ground turkey, a Luna bar, a box of cheese crackers (like cheeze-its but organic brand), a Diet Coke and my snow peas. $20 later I finally got out of that store. Someday I am going to go to a grocery store and really just buy what is on my list.

So tonight I made Chinese-style roasted pork from the Sept issue of Cooking Light. And wow, I am having a major case of deja vu. It tastes remarkably like the Pacific Rim Pork Sandwiches, also from Cooking Light. Actually the only difference between the 2 recipes is like 2 or 3 ingredients. Both are wonderful, and I have the same complaint about both of them...Where's the sauce? At times I think maybe I should have named this blog "All things Saucy". I love sauces of all sorts, but since I can't make a respectable sauce it probably would have been a misnomer. Anyways, if I ever have the foresight to make extra sauce that isn't all yucked up by the raw meat. Ahhh, maybe someday.

I also wanted to send my thoughts and prayers to those who have been affected by the Hurricane on the Gulf Coast. And though I know she will never see this blog (since she doesn't have a computer) I want to send my love to my Great Aunt Corrie in MS. I hope you are okay and that I can get ahold of you soon.

bOILED WATER , AND ADD ORANGE MERMELAD,REDUCED FOR HALF AND HOUR, AND BEFORE YOU SERVE THE PORK , JUST SUMERGE EVERY PIECE IN THIS DELICIOUS MIXTURE AND SERVE, INMEDIATLY.
 
"All Sauced Up" could be another fun title. :)

I love sauces as well. Have you tried the apricot pork chops from July? Very yummy, and the sauce was lick-the-plate goood!
 
Love sauced dishes! I'll try to remember that if we ever get around to making this. Funny how that happens with the store huh? It's hard to just go and get the one thing you really need!
 
I hear you on the grocery store runs!! I never escape with just my list!!
