Simple and delicious   Leave a comment

This is not an unusual meal and don’t require a recipe. I ate a hot dog and some cheese and crackers for lunch. I had a slice of pickle and tomato against my hot dog on a wheat bun. The sharp cheddar cheese was triangle cut on top of a butter crisp cracker. I cut the cheese this way because I was bored last night and this sound fun. But believe or not ,it makes a difference in taste. Also had my jalapenos wrapped with lettuce. I had a great lunch.
I tries to add more salad into my meals. If it is along a meal or in it it’s delicious. Avoid the dressing though , that’s a huge calories booster!!!!

There are so many things about salads other than it’s healthy for you. I sometimes use salad for hot and cold sandwiches and for treats on the go.  Garden salad goes great for turkey and gravy salad subs.

For my Pork Glory sandwiches I take the great strippings from roasted pork shoulder and steam it with light tury gravy. Jar gravy works bet. Then I simmer onions and greenpeppers.Meanwhile I take a huge bowl., add both romab a regulard head lettuce, tomatoes thin slice of carrots , tin slice of cabbage. Toss . Then add little of red wine dressing add more veggies like watercress, red onions and even black ollives. Mixed all together it’s soo delicious it great alone. When thepork is done ,let cool for couple of minutes. Lay over toasted  or untoasted  itallian hero  bread. Simply dress the sub with the salad. Oh it’s to die for. Give it a try and tell me how it turns out.Enjoy!

 I love pork just as much as beef. I must limit the starch in my diet. So I’m laying off the pork sandwiches for now. Instead I make a great pork salad. It’s pretty simple. All I do is steam fry chopped boneless pork shops and add my fresh salad  and dressing. What  I like is a lot a little sides I put goes with it. Such as green and sweet plantains ,slice dill pickles, and brown rice if prefer.

Pork Salad Cress

  • Steam fried  boneless pork
  • Fresh slice red onions, green peppers and black olives
  • Water cress,roman lettuces
  • Raw cauliflower(believe me ,it will taste great in this salad)
  • mozzarella chunks or slices
  • Plantains
  • avocado
  • Tomatoes slice or those mini ones
  • Slice of raw okra

Either steam fry the pork with yellow onions or put red ones in the salad, your choice. I personally prefer red or yellow raw for longer preserve. This is a little  trick I learned; meat salads taste better when meat is place bottom of the bowl then the dressing.I fried sweet plantains with mines. Just cut the hull ,slice and place them into a half an inch of oil fill skillet. Back to the salad, after the meat I add the cauliflower. Be sure to wash all fruit and veggies thoroughly. Once the cauliflower is soaking with the pork I add the water cress and tomatoes. Hence, the why the cauliflower will taste great. Then I throw the chopped okra ,black olives and slices of mozzarella cheese. Several slices of avacado. Add the roman lettuce and if my side dishes is not sweet I add grapes or apple. Again up to you. Now it’s time for the dressing. It’s the submarine dressing usual uses for deli sandwiches and I adds red vinaigrette dressing . It’s a great combination. For work I put my the dressing in a little container ,therefore it wouldn’t soak the salad.

 Delicious!!! Enjoy!

Well,I enjoyed spending time with my kids and friends. We had original plans to go skating. But my friend daughter wanted to go someone else.Some where  her ex boyfriend wouldn’t be so we decided to Friday’s restaurant. There I got into an argument with a waitress who step on my foot and didn’t apologized. Some nerve! Well from there we  head back to my house. Too cold to chill out some else. The first thing came out of my friends ,mouth was “What are you going to cook?”  What am I  a cook?” I said humorous. I made a snack tray , Crab salad ,sided with butter crackers, roast beef sandwiches and cheese ,slice apples . ( I didn’t make the crab salad) it something how a salad could be the best dip. The sandwiches; I use vegetable dip as a spread and stuffed slices of roast beef into dinner rolls.(the roast beef I didn’t cook) I set down the platter then it was gone. All I had out of it was two crackers and a bit of dip.Man!

Make sure you have mints available. Because I didn’t and conversation was hard to bear. Well anyway we all sat around apart. The kids play video games and talk on the phone. I had fun we remines of our school years and laugh our heads off. The best part I didn’t have to drive home cause I was already home.No bill. And no clean up. They ate it all. At least my kids ate a lot of it as well. Take my advice, if  you have good friends ,try enjoying hanging out at home.
