Cool Summer Product for the Kids

I really love this product. With the price of everything going up, I find it inexpensive to make my own Popsicles. I can put my own flavors together and have some fun.

A New Starter at Chili's

My wife and I went out for dinner this evening and we tried one of their new starters, the Onion String & Crispy Jalapeno Stack. It was absolutely delicious. My daughter who is normally a very picky eater enjoyed it as well. It is served with a Jalapeno Ranch dressing.

Although I have had onion string appetizers at other restaurants, I really enjoyed these. With the addition of the fried Jalapeno slices and the Jalapeno Ranch dressing, it was a spicy treat. I found the combination perfect.

I highly recommend trying them. The wife asked me to replicate the recipe for our next party with friends or to take them to the retirement community for Happy Hour on Fridays.

Pork for Dinner

I picked up some pork chops and pork shoulder steaks for dinner tonight. They were on sale at Wal-Mart for about a $1.34 per pound. Since I'm still unemployed, I do a lot of grocery shopping early in the morning. The people in the meat market are marking down the meat because the cuts are approaching their "best served by" dates.

I find a lot of bargains and I freeze most of it. I have a vacuum sealer and I use it constantly. I find commercial bags on sale on ebay and purchase hundreds at a time. In my kitchen, I have pint, quart and gallon size bags ready to for fruit, vegetables and meat. Needles to say, my freezers are packed with all sorts of goodies to cook.

I buy a lot of pork and chicken for dinners. Very inexpensive and very tasty. Even cheap cuts of meats are great when properly cooked.
