Are there other goonies like us out there? We're at the table eating our supper tonight, and pondering if there was ever a better meal than a big ol' pork chop & butternut squash? Just didn't seem possible! Pork chops not even breaded - just fried up in a pan! ;)

Thing is, we sat there last night musing if there could possibly be a meal any better than a big bowl of thick/hearty steak soup?! Hub even suggested never buying boughten soup again because there's no comparison . . .

It appears that whatever is in front of us at the moment is the most scrumptious meal in the world! heheh! Do any of the rest of you act like this or is it just old goony birds like us? :D :D :D

Don't get me started! Your other half is right about the soup for several reason. First there is the taste, soup from scratch has that hands down. Then there is the sodium (salt) factor. Much easier to control with homemade. Plus superior fresh or frozen ingrediants that are not loaded with preservatives and sodium.

While I love one inch thick pork chops, I prefer boneless, skinless chicken breasts that are marinated with a good marinade that is of my or my wife's making. I like the acorn squash, but the butternut squash is good also if I can avoid using so much butter and brown sugar when cooking it.

Eat hearty!!!

I can't claim that all of my cooking gets this reaction :p but often enough hubby and I feel just that way.. what's in front of us is the best thing ever! You can keep the squash though..we like pan fried asparagus with pork chop or rib eye!

I mostly eat alone, but that is OK by me! I often sit and eat eggs and cheese and bacon at breakfast and I eat till I am full and am very satisfied.

Peter, you cut that out! Living on basal only is not good for you. This is worrying me!!!

Now then, about the soups, Shanny -- you definitely have MY vote -- and my son's too! He had an assignment to list things he was thankful for, and included "My mom's soups!" Lol! :D

I do make some good ones, even if they are without meat or animal parts ... :rolleyes:

I too love to eat, and especially enjoy some new combination of stuff ... keep up the good work!

Soups? I've been experimenting with those. Twice I've bought too many fresh veggies to consume during the week, so I've made soup out of them. Turned out very tasty, but I need to learn more about seasonings.

Another thing about soups, my vegan diet writers hammer away about eating lots of legumes at every meal, but how much beans, peas and lentils can one consume before lapsing into a coma from boredom? Solution: make soup and toss some of those things into the pot. Very painless way to comply with the diet.
