Pork Chops with Plum Compote

It’s the weekend, and at my house that means trying a new food as part of my recently implemented initiative called Fun Food Weekends. It’s how I get munchkin to not be so picky about new foods.

I’m not a huge fan of pork so I’ll use a substitute for the following meal, but it does look delicious and I’m dying to try the Plum Compote and Grilled Plums on the side.

If you’re in the mood to experiment, head on over to for this and many more fantastic recipes. Enjoy! 🌷

Walk the path you chose
All alone if you must
Life is yours to live
Keep it under control

Walk for your health
As best as you can
Let not life’s worries
Kill all the fun

Walk the path less travelled
At Least make a try
Lead life as happy as can be
Kind and gentle be you

Walk with your family
And with your friends
Lots of goodwill and love
Keep you happy and hale

Squid's Cup of Tea

I’ve never dated, yet I have a pretty good idea of what romantic love feels like.  My father picks me up on Tuesdays from my mom’s house and we either go birding, get dinner, go back to his house and play games, watch TV, or play music (or a mixture of these).  During these activities, we talk, cuddle, laugh, and make crazy memories.  He’s quite the gentleman and holds the door for me at restaurants, kisses me on the head while we’re watching a movie and cuddling, and holds my hand when we’re driving (allowing that he can afford to take one hand off the wheel).  He texts me randomly during the day, telling me that he loves me.  We joke that when (if) I ever am in a relationship like that with a guy, I’ll have some pretty high standards because of the amazing example my daddy’s been.  And…
