Hi all, with my arm out of commission-dinner still had to get put on the table, laundry done and lunches made-not easy, but I sort of got a reprieve.

My husband wound up being sent to one of the company's new stores to train the staff, so after posting my 2 columns-I took my bathing suit and went with him.  I think having the latest store in a beachside community was a good move.

Back to Thursday though-took out pork chops and had my daughter-in-law pour some soy sauce, Montreal steak seasoning and evoo into the bags and let it defrost and marinate at the same time.  Those wound up getting the grill treatment.  Took out some low-carb tortillas.

I think you see where I went with this meal:  besides grilling the pork, peppers, mushrooms and onions also got the treatment.  It was all served fajita-style with salsa, spinach, shredded cheese and sour cream.  

Did anyone miss the usual meals with many different marinades, salads and desserts?  No, not one single bit.
If someone wanted something sweet to eat-I had grapes, watermelon and some mighty beautiful strawberries in the fridge.  On movie night-instead of the air-popper, we used some microwave popcorn bags.  Nothing wrong with using the Keurig instead of the Cuisineart for coffee either.

What I'm showing you here this week is this-even with an injury or when extreme pain, there's still a way to put a meal on the table, with great variety and a whole lot of flavor.

Love it
