RIP Sweetie Pie

My second best friend and perhaps the best dog ever died suddenly on Tuesday after 13 years.  She lived a good life, was a great companion and gave us unconditional love - we will miss her so.  She seemed to enjoy the things we did, whether it be playing at the lake, playing in the snow, traveling, or just hanging around the house, but mostly I think she just like being with us.

Oysters Rockefeller Topping As Leftovers

We had had some friends over for grilled oysters Rockefeller recently and I made too much of the spinach topping even for the five dozen oysters we scarfed down.  We used our normal recipe for the topping and with spinach, bacon, garlic and parmesan, it has to be good for other things – but first I mixed in a good bit more crumbled bacon.

We had recently bought a whole pork loin so I carved off five one inch thick chops, cut a deep pocket in them and stuffed lightly with the oyster topping – it had lots of flavor so I didn’t want it too thick.  I seasoned the outside with Lawrey’s as I thought I’d would go with the spinach flavors then grilled them to 140F on each side.

These shots are when they first went on the grill and after flipping.

Leftovers from Pan-Seared Catfish With Brown Butter On Black Olive Toast

I posted about this catfish dish back in July, 2013 and I’m not sure if we’ve made it since but Bev had been wanting it so we made it the other night and used a triple so we’d have leftovers.

And what is my favorite thing to do with leftovers – why turn them into breakfast of course.  First I added some of the sauce to a skillet then added the beaten eggs.

RVing To River Plantation - Days 12-15

On Tuesday we swapped coach tours with another couple who own a 2016 Tuscany as they wanted to see the changes from our 2013 model and so did we.  Our coach is nice inside but I considered it the low end of the 45’ models when compared to some of the others we looked at.  However, when we walked into the 2016 model, I was shocked at the difference as it was more like walking into one of the high end Tiffin’s or Newmar’s.
