oh man

othercat and i just created the most awesome dinner together.

earlier in the week we made a deal that i would go to the market for us and meet him at his place and that i would cook the weekly jam night dinner.

then… events transpired.

our fearless guitarist mr. law took sick with the poisoning of food and thus we were forced to hang with each other and skip making magical music in a trusting and talented group.

othercat got off work early and decided to pick me up and take me to the market, thus saving my ankle, and we (mostly he) selected pork chops for dinner. we acquired some grape roma tomatoes (SOOOO GOOD!!) and some fresh licorice along with berries and homeward were we bound.

and then? inspiration hit.

othercat said ‘here’s the worcestershire sauce’ and i said “hrm, i’m holding beer” and thus genius was born. i soaked all but the top of the chops in beer and worcestershire sauce and then smeared the tops with minced garlic, rosemary and montreal steak spice.

cover with a plate and fuck off.

snack on tomatoes.

now its later and we’ve eaten our sushi appetizer and i throw some taters on to steam.

further fucking off ensues,
i come back, poke the taters and leave again,
i come back, poke the taters, put the chops on the grill (spice side down, same spices added to previously virginal side). chops go on ignore.

taters get dumped out of the steamer, dumped into pan filled with sizzling olive oil, minced garlic and rosemary.

new pan goes on with water and steamer on it.

fucking off with beer ensues,


flip chops, baste with leftover liquid from marinade, stir fuck out of potatoes


balcony break

put veggies in steamer [chunked broccoli]

remove veggies, toss in fry pan with olive oil, fresh grated parmesan cheese, garlic powder and pepper.


stir, flip, stir, stir, flip stir.


serve with more roma grape tomatoes


die of food coma happiness.

dress with fruit smoothie for dessert.



  1. I want to share in the happy coma. Can I come next time? :)

  2. Sounds like a delicious meal, and a nice evening, despite the lack of making magical musics. I just ate lunch, and I’m quite full, but now I’m craving roma tomatoes…

    Hope you’re well!

    sonus: heh

    the baby romas are awesome, awesome i tell you.

    i am well thank you, just dealing with a little emotional maelstrom but the nice thing about being an old bag is you get more used to it. ;>
