We Want to Know Wednesdays Q&A

Welcome to We Want to Know Wednesdays Q&A

Mamarazzi, is asking the questions this week.  This is another first for me!

{1} What is for dinner tonight (bonus for sharing the recipe)?
{2} Share something you are currently looking forward to.
{3} What are your thoughts on re-gifting?
{4} How often do you rearrange your furniture?
{5} Share a picture from your cellphone or camera.

1} What is for dinner tonight (bonus for sharing the recipe)?
l.  Tonight is Smothered Pork Chops.

Brown your chops in a little bit of olive oil. 
Add a medium onion, sliced, green or red or a combination of pepper, sliced.  I use red.
2 stalks of celery, diced.
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste.
Add 4 Tablespoons of rice, your choice.  I prefer brown since it's suppose to be better for us, just DO NOT use instant.  Use the real rice!
Pour a can of diced tomatoes over the top.  (I prefer the fire roasted tomatoes with juice)  They have so much more flavor.  Add just enough water to rinse the can out.  (just. a couple of tablespoons)
Cover your skillet and let it simmer on low heat for about an hour.
At the very end add a small bag of frozen peas.  (Sometimes I don't add them.)
It is a one pot meal and it is so good and easy.
I serve it with a side tossed salad and a piece of crusty bread.



{2} Share something you are currently looking forward to.
2.  I am looking forward to Valentines.  I am not usually much of a Valentines person, but this year I am because I know I will get fresh flowers.  I have  been longing for fresh flowers the past few weeks to cheer up me and the house, but because one of my 2012 goals is not to spend money on frivolous purchases, at least through March. I have refrained from buying them.

{3} What are your thoughts on re-gifting?
3.  I think re-gifting is a good thing ONLY if the gift is something that you know that person would love and something that you are not ever going to use anyway. Otherwise, NO WAY! donate it.


{4} How often do you rearrange your furniture?
4.  I absolutely NEVER rearrange my furniture, once I get it the way I like it.  My mother always rearranged the furniture when I was growing up and it drove me crazy! I never knew where the couch would be when I came home.  It was really hard to sneak in!  I guess I was scared for life!!

{5} Share a picture from your cellphone or camera.
5.  I just took these pictures about 5 minutes ago.

Come on over and play, it's my first time too.

Love and hugs,
Ginger
