Roast pork (leftover), home fries with Vidalia onion, collard greens. Will use remaining pork and potatoes for hash in the morning.

Ganache whipped cream:
Ganache
1/4 cup whipping cream, heated over medium low heat until steaming, add 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate and whisk until melted. Place in freezer for 15 minutes until cool.

Whipped cream
1/2 cup whipping cream, add 1/4 cup powdered sugar, dash of salt and dash of vanilla, beat with electric mixer until soft peaks form.
Fold whipped cream into chilled ganache until combined.

Grilled corn on the cob and a salad with romaine, tomatoes, and carrots and honey mustard dressing.

I was lazy tonight. Just had some cheese, banana, and PB.  Too hot right now for much else.

Thank you! I wonder if this would be good on strawberries....

It would be good on anything that goes with chocolate.

Tonight will be chicken, zucchini, squash, tiny eggplants, mushrooms and onion.

I just finished DH's favorite: mini salisbury steaks in brown gravy and skin-on cheesy mashed potatoes. The bonus item is freshly-baked whole-wheat bread. This is only my second time making bread, but it turned out very nicely. Now, if he would just get home from work so we can eat it  ;D

One day I'll figure out how to post pictures...
