I only asked the boy to bring me home 2 things from his recent trip: Tim Tams and Violet Crumble. For some reason Tim Tams here taste differently and Violet Crumble's hardly available anywhere. Turns out looking for these babies were just as difficult to find where he was because it was always a full day of museums and zoos such that the time they were finally free was the same time shops closed. Bummer. But, he did find a suitable replacement in Cadbury's Crunchie Bars--similar honeycomb center covered with milk chocolate that is guaranteed to stick to your teeth or what's left of it. Incidentally, I will be making these for our Halloween shindig this Saturday where I will dress up as Bellatrix Lestrange.
For today, I adapted a recipe from the blog Give Me Some Oven-- Cocoa and Chili-rubbed Pork Chops. I tweaked it by changing the chili powder into chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce--everything else I retained, including the brining which is much needed to keep the chop moist even when it becomes cold by lunch time.
Today's lunchbox: Cocoa and Chipotle Rubbed Pork Chops and Mexi-Cali Rice
Now, as I still have remnants of the weekend's flu, I must go back to my chemically-enhanced, deep sleep.
Good night and good morning to y'all. :-)
