This bitch has a cold.
Or maybe this is allergies?
Fuck it….who can think with this much cough medicine in their system?
Last night a bitch took my illish self out to see The Roots at The Pageant. This bitch, Brother Rob Thurman, my Play Husband and his man-friend were among the masses getting our funk-infused hip hop on!
It was a great show and the crowd gave off a fantabulous vibe, so this bitch is glad I rallied.
Quote of the night deliberately provided without context … “Girl, are you telling me they pay money for you to whoop their ass? Shit, I need a job like that!”
This bitch plans to lay low this weekend and get some serious writing done. My one plan, other than not answering my phone is to cook the following yummified recipe.
This one’s straight from the bayou of Louisiana courtesy of the fantabulous thatfarmgirl (hugs to you, m’dear).
1 pork chop, bone in
2 cans sliced carrots, drained (or a large bag of fresh carrots, peeled and sliced)
1 bunch green onions
Scant 1/4 cup oil
Scant 1/4 cup flour
One medium onion, chopped
Two cloves garlic, minced
Season your pork chop and brown it in a little oil until well browned on both sides. Remove from pan and add remaining oil (it's okay if you use a little more than 1/4 c. of oil...just up your flour amount to match).
Make a roux! While oil is hot, add flour and whisk/stir constantly until roux is light brown. You MUST keep stirring or the roux will burn. Don't even think about stopping to take a sip of a vodka cran...
When roux is light-ish brown, add onions and saute 2-3 minutes, then add garlic and saute another minute, then add carrots and a little less than 2 cans of hot water. Put pork chop on top of carrots. Bring to a boil for one minute, then turn down to simmer and put a lid on it. Simmer for about an hour, checking frequently to see if you need to add more water. The roux and smothered carrots will make a delicious gravy. Serve over white rice and sprinkle green onions on top. Season with salt and LOTS of black pepper.
Gawd, help me…it even reads yummy!
