Tonight for vegetables it was corn on the cob and broccoli
When I go to the supermarket the menu is determined by what is on sale. When I went to the store I picked up two packages of pork steaks. To save a bit of energy we usually make two meals at once. We will have a normal portion and have enough for another day, and sometimes a lunch too
The pork fillets are sitting on a bed of onions, a drizzle of olive oil and topped with sliced lemons, more onions and a can of soup concentrate, this time it was cream of celery. Into the oven at 350°F for about an hour
The corn on the cob is husked and steamed in a pot along with the broccoli
It only takes about 20 minutes so we wait a bit so they are ready when the meat is ready
It seems that we are now ready to "plate up" our meal
We don't add any liquid but there is enough generated to have some gravy and the onions are generally caramelized a bit.
We try to have a balanced meal
Since Mrs Skoot can only use one hand for the next 6-7 weeks, I have to do all the cutting (or anything that requires two hands) I also found out today that even though it is possible for her to drive, we were advised for her not to. If there were an accident, she would be in a bad situation.
I only had one casualty. I had blood all over my finger. It did look worse than this but I licked the blood off. I didn't even feel it, must have been when I was cutting the onions with our cleaver
