Well, I had a rare moment of weakness and made an iffy purchase off the Internets. One of those nifty squifty slicer dicers for chopping veggies that looks so cool in the pictures (the kind of thing they used to sell on TV along with the Popiel Pocket Fisherman — you know the kind of stuff I mean).
Alas, the super duper slicer dicer is only fair — does ok on soft vegs and dicing onions and such, not too great on hard vegs like carrots or leafy ones like cabbage (which gets stuck in the holes). But it does make a great container for shredded salad makings in the frig.
I should have known better, of course — I usually have better resistance to this sort of thing — they caught me at a weak moment. The boys enjoyed the whole process though:
And I did manage to get enough veggies shredded to make pork chops with creamed corn and sauteed red cabbage — also known as Dad’s Favorite Meal.
Pork chops with creamed corn on top, sprinkled with brown sugar, Himalayan pink salt, garlic. Browned in butter and baked at 350 for 20 minutes (pork cuts nowadays cook FAST). Cook to 145 degrees.
Red cabbage and red onion sauteed in butter and pom juice — also with brown sugar, Himalayan pink salt, garlic.
The boys were SUCH a help making this dinner. They are a big help to me in the kitchen.
Happy Monday all! Put a sunflower in your lapel and go forth in solidarity this last fine day of February. Stay safe everybody. Hugs.

- Do not troll the diary. If you hate pootie diaries, leave now. No harm, no foul.
- Please do share pics of your fur kids! If you have health/behavior issues with your pets, feel free to bring it to the community.
- Pooties are cats; Woozles are dogs. Birds... are birds! Peeps are people.
- Whatever happens in the outer blog STAYS in the outer blog. If you’re having “issues” with another Kossack, keep it “out there.” This is a place to relax and play; please treat it accordingly.
There are some pics we never post: snakes, creepy crawlies, any and all photos that depict or encourage human cruelty toward animals. These are considered “out of bounds” and will not be tolerated. If we alert you to it, PLEASE REMOVE THE PIC FROM THE IMAGE LIBRARY. If you keep posting banned pics...well then...the Tigress will have to take matters in hand. Or, paw.
