Used some of that Satan's Ghost sauce tonight when I made meatloaf for dinner. I added about two small drops of it to the mixture before shaping the loaf. When we ate I could detect a little bit of heat that was not there the last time I made meatloaf. Funny thing is, Ms1995hoo didn't notice anything....I guess that means I could have used some more of it! Used a very small spoon to measure out a little bit and stir it in.

I'll have to try the stuff by itself at some point just to get a sense for how it is, as I was a little surprised the meatloaf didn't have more of a kick to it. I'd also thought about substituting Old Bay instead of salt and pepper but decided I'd rather not make two changes in one go-round because if you do that it's harder to compare how a new ingredient changes things.

I have two thawed pork chops at home. What should I do with them?

I like pork chops with a Cuban olive oil/lime juice/orange juice/garlic/sea salt/cayenne marinade.  Grilling outside is best but broiler inside is fine.  Black beans and some white rice and you're good to go (the red cans of Goya black beans in sauce fit this bill pretty well, and require no work).

We made our reliable standby tonight. This is adapted from a recipe posted on the Bumper Boards by Mandy—she uses bacon and it's good that way, but I switched to prosciutto once when I didn't want to bother with bacon and we actually liked it better this way.

—Chicken breasts (I use Perdue Perfect Portions because I can freeze them, then thaw as many as I need)
—One thin slice of prosciutto for each chicken breast
—One wedge of Laughing Cow cheese for each chicken breast (we use the reduced-fat Swiss cheese wedges)
—Seasoning or marinade per your taste (we use McCormick brand "garlic, herb, and wine" marinade)
—Toothpicks

Pound chicken breasts reasonably thin. Marinate for a while if desired or season to taste.

Preheat oven to 350F.

Place a slice of prosciutto atop each pounded chicken breast, then put a wedge of cheese at one end of each on top of the prosciutto. Roll up each one around the cheese and secure with a toothpick.

Spray a baking dish with Pam or other spray. Place rolled-up chicken breasts in this dish and cover it with foil.

Bake 20 minutes at 350F, then remove foil and bake 20 minutes more. Serve with whatever side dishes suit you (we had yellow rice tonight).

That sounds good.  Safeway actually carries a good whole milk mozzerella/hot pepperoni roll that is perfect for such meltacious purposes (and it's pretty cheap, like 7 or 8 bucks for a half pound roll)...but I guess you can't go wrong with la vache qui rit

Did this crockpot chicken recipe tonight.  Decent but I overcooked the thing.

Most hated foods:

raw cucumber
jello salad
watermelon

There are others, but these top the list. I do love anchovies and raw garlic...so perhaps I have some genetic defect.

Anyone hate doughnuts?

Watermelon is best salted.  Cucumber too.

I hate raw tomato.  Tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, pasta sauce, salsa, all good.  Even a bit of diced tomato on a taco.  But a slice on a sandwich?  Gtfo.

i'm not a big fan of them raw, but i put them in salads, extremely healthy food.  My favorite preparation is cucumber salad with onions, vinegar and sugar.

Dude, I hate all three of those things.

My grandmother's signature dish was "sunset salad," which is just orange jello with carrot shavings inside and Cool Whip on top. It was the nastiest thing and I hated it. My aunt always served me a full plate and until I was 15 or 16 my parents always made me eat it. When my grandma got Alzheimer's, it was terrible and awful and sad, but at least she couldn't make sunset salad anymore.

Apparently before I was born, my grandma's other signature dish was to take a casserole pan, put in cans of tuna, cans of green beans, and a couple boxes of Kraft mac'n'cheese, cover it with Velveeta, and bake. She stopped making that after my mom faked getting the flu.
