so...

It's been a couple of days now, I still have a little jet lag, like getting up at 5:00 am, but at least I can kinda go back to sleep until 7:00 am (my usual wake-up time).

Sunday dinner was some pupus (appetizers)--including the seasoned pretzels my mom made, I also cooked some shrimp in sweet chili sauce and we bought some roasted veggies (which were really bland!).

Dinner tonight was pork with cranberry chutney and roasted veggies. While I was home, my mom made some cranberry chutney with fresh cranberries, onions and garlic....mmm this is good!

I roasted some zucchini, sweet potato, carrot and onion in some EVOO, salt, pepper, sage and thyme. I also roasted a red bell pepper.

The only actual standing by the stove was to cook the pork. Did you know pork chops here have no bone? I think it is because most of the cuts of pork are used for tonkatsu (pork cutlet). I have yet to see pork chops with the bone in it, in a market...

What did you have for dinner tonight?

Cranberry chutney!!! Diamond Head Market and Grill here makes a ham and cheese sandwich. It's just a plain ole ham and cheese sandwich, but what makes it almost magical is the little bit of cranberry chutney that they put inside.

So sorry I haven't been keeping up with the blog. Glad to see you were home for awhile. The meal looks great. Can you believe the holiday season is here. I have yet to work on my Christmas picture and newsletter. Take care Kat!

I think I would be able to get over the jet lag a bit faster without Satoshi's snoring, Kirk ;)

ooh, I think I will buy some ham and cheese and make this Jalna, thanks for the idea!

Everyone has "real life" stuff to do Laura, glad you could stop by.

Take care everyone.

Hope the jet lag fades soon. The pork with the chutney looks yummy. Tonight I had Nigella's Paprika Potato Skins with Guacamole for a post on Wednesday. I made them a bit healthier and they were pretty tasty.
