Stuff and Nonsense: Pork, the Other White Meat

Pork, the Other White Meat

Sometimes, you have a plan ... but it goes terribly wrong ... and you end up with a supper completely different from what you had intended.


The chicken was bad, you see. I'd had my suspicions at lunch, when I opened the fridge and my nose was greeted by a slightly off odor. Something was going bad. I rummaged around in the crisper, looking for manky produce, but found nothing stinky. Dairy drawer was the same. I completely failed to check the package of chicken, because I knew it had a sell-by date of December 15. Also, I was hungry and it was lunch time.

And then it was supper time. Sliced red peppers. Started heating a splash of olive oil up in my big sauté pan. And then I grabbed the chicken from the fridge and it was just so very clear where the smell was coming from.

So chicken in the bin. Marinated pork tenderloin meant for Sunday into the pan with the peppers and then the pan into the oven for 30 minutes at 375°F. Boil red potatoes. Microwave green beans. Microwave leftover sautéed mushrooms. Portion out. Eat.

Now I just have to figure out what we're going to do for Sunday's supper. Plenty of raw potatoes, carrots, onions, mushrooms, and peppers ... maybe, I'll thaw some chicken! Hahahaha.
