Why do I post pictures of our meals?

Where are we today ?
      Now as to why I have been posting pictures of meals on my blog. Well today is a perfect example. I started this many years ago when I did not have much new to write about when we stay in one place for a while, so just posted a picture of what I made for supper. Gave me something to write about and take a picture of. And as most of your know I love cooking, nothing fancy just tasty and what we enjoy.
       When I stopped posting our meals I had requests as to why, so since then I have continued, and helps keep me somewhat creative. Also gives other people ideas for meals, and I enjoy seeing other ideas of what people have eaten too.
        Now we have been back here in Ontario since Jan. 12th, cold and snowy, with no end in sight in the near future. Family stuff and not too much exciting going on other than we are busy doing day to day things that need to be done.
        Some errands done here and there and I actually had time for about 45 minutes to read my KOBO, wonderful!  Had to snow blow on the driveway and sidewalks this morning and a quick shovel this afternoon with only about 2 inches of light fluffy stuff.
beautiful winter view from the walkout family room
downstairs this afternoon
     Today we having a heat wave -3c (26F) feels wonderful so gonna fire up our Weber Q and grill a couple smoked pork chops, and add to a tasty salad with lotsa fresh stuff, oh... is was so tasty. Love good smoked pork chops I found in the freezer, a special treat for us and just had to use them up.
yep sure did the trick tonight
       Other than that,  not much new here for now, hope y'all had a great day and wanna thank ya for stopping by again.
Check out the interactive map below to see where we have been this past Winter.

  3. The picture of the new fallen snow looks pretty but it stops right there because with it comes cold temperatures! So glad you able to use the Weber Q for your pork chops, I know you miss using it in the cold, windy weather.

      Gotta do smoked pork chops on the grill, there is no other way to cook them as far as I am concerned.

  8. I also enjoy the pics of your meals on the Q. How do you keep those smoked pork chops from drying out?

    1. Smoked chops are already cooked you just need to heat them up, a few minutes on each side, too long and they will dry out. Leave the fat on until after they are cooked too.

  9. You guys seem to have more winter there than we have here in AB, where winter has been pretty mild most of the time.
    Your meal pics are welcome. Keep posting them.

  10. Sounds like a fine reason to me. I'm thinking your car and coach wish you had left them out west and flown home, but then you would have been without your trusty Q
