Sunday Dinner

We don't always have Sunday Dinner.That is, we have dinner, it just isn't always a special dinner. It depends on what is going on that day.

Rosemary Potatoes

1T butter
1tsp minced garlic
1tsp dried rosemary
1/2tsp salt
1-1/2 pounds red potatoes, quartered

Melt butter and garlic in a 8 inch square baking dish in the microwave. microwave on medium high for 45 seconds.
Add rosemary, salt, pepper and potatoes. Toss.
cover, and microwave on high for 15 minutes


1-10 ounce bag of spinach, torn
8 ounces of mushrooms, sliced
2-11 ounce cans of mandarin orange, drained well
1ounce crumbled blue cheese
2T chopped pecans
1/2 cup raspberry vinaigrette

Toss all ingredients

NOTE.. To make this low-cost, I would use a regular orange or a tangerine. you use walnuts if pecans are more expensive or dependimg on what you have after Christmas.


4 pork chops
2tsp olive oil
1-1/2 cups white wine
1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup Dijon mustard

salt and pepper pork. Brown on both sides in oil about 5 minutes each side.
Add honey, mustard, and wine and bring to a boil for three minutes.
Add the pork to the pan. Simmer for 6 minutes A SIDE or until pork is done.

NOTES. Honey is the one food that never goes bad. If it crystalizes, heat it in the microwave or in it's glass jar , uncovered in boiling water.

chicken broth would be a substitute for white wine.
