Do you think some day women can really understand men, or vice versa?
That was just rhetorical, okay, don’t take me seriously…
For the life of me, I can never understand how my own husband thinks.
He just bought me a 10-pound pork loin!
Do you know how big a 10-pound pork loin is? Just look at your leg, that’s how big it is.
What was he thinking?!
Oooh..it was on sale?? That makes perfect sense!
Is he out of his freaking mind?! Doesn’t he know how long it’ll take us to eat a 10-pound pork loin?!
That was just rhetorical, okay, don’t take me seriously… Of course I’ve seen a bigger piece of meat before. Or even cooked one. I’ll cook one again next week. You know, my annual 20-pound turkey?
Which brings me to my next point. I need to clean out my fridge to make room for that 20-pounder. But it just got harder with the 10-pounder in it.
Anyway, I cut a piece off it to make this…pork hominy bean posole stew thingy… Trust me, there’s pork in there…
I still have 8 pounds left…
(As I was typing this, Skye was looking at me intently… Hmm, can you feed your dog pork jerky?…)

Dad Whats 4 Dinner says
Okay that is a little ridiculous! At least he was trying to save you some money. Personally I would have had the butcher cut them into chops and then you could freeze them. To answer your questions; I will never understand YOU women!! Happy FF and Happy Thanksgiving to all my Fiesta Friday friends.
I would have done the same. We’re cooks, we know what to do, and may I add, the best people in the world, lol. The hubs? He’s a shopper not a cook! I would have thought you’re the one man who can understand us women, Quinn. We get along so well!! ??
Dad Whats 4 Dinner says
I still have a wife of 25 years that I can’t figure out. Cooking and shopping, yes! The rest of the stuff, no clue! :)) Trust I cringe when Christie goes to the grocery.
Lol! We’re doomed, Quinn, doomed I tell ya! If YOU can’t figure us out, no one will! ?
Good luck with that huge piece of meat Angie! I bet you will make some delicious dishes. The features are scrumptious this week! Happy Fiesta Friday and I am so excited to co-host this week 😀
Thanks, Antonia! Luckily the son is coming home. The daughter, you know, is almost vegetarian. That meat would last forever without the son ? Thanks so much for cohosting! ?
He has some eating to do then 😉 You’re welcome Angie! I am excited to co-host again!
Matt @ RoughEats says
10lb of pork loin!! Fabulous! This is what deep freezers are for! I must say, it is a man thing. I am constantly filling up the fridge at inopportune moments!
Haha Matt…I can just imagine ? But when we were still dating, his fridge was empty!! He and his roommate only had cereals! ??
Angie, I cannot stop laughing! My hubby would do exactly the same thing…..and have no clue why I am so mad 🙂
Happy thanksgiving to you and your family!
Men!! I think as a punishment I should send him out in the cold and ask him to barbecue the loin. But then, he will prob have fun doing it, so nah… ? Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Sandhya! ?
The pasole stew thingy looks fantastic! I wish my hubby would shop! He’s more of an eater than a shopper or cook lol! At least I have control of my fridge right!?!?
Happy Fiesta Friday!
Thanks for all you do!
Hey, having control of the fridge is a right we have to fight, lol! I guess I should be thankful the hubs shops for me coz sometimes I can’t stand the lines at the stores, especially around this time of year! Enough rant, haha… Happy FF, Michelle! ?
Angie at least your hubby thinks of your cooking when doing groceries:) I don’t remember the last time mine stepped foot in a supermarket so kudos to your hubs! I say freeze parts and invite people over for a pork themed dinner! Happy weekend xx
That’s one thing mine is good at, buying food, lol ? I think that’s a great idea, Marguerite. I’ll freeze some, then maybe go over to my neighbor’s and bring some posole ?
Looks like you have a lot of meat eating to do lol. Thanks for the feature:)
I’ll prob end up freezing a lot of it, lol. Men!! Love your cheesecake, Lily!! ?
Elaine @ foodbod says
Don’t give it to Skye!!! My experience of dogs and pork is that they don’t mix well!!!
Thanks for confirming! Good thing I sort of remember and didn’t give her any!

Julie is Hostess At Heart says
Go big or go home right? Good luck with that one Angie! Thank you for the feature this week!
That bread sounds amazing, Julie!! Looks so pretty, too… I guess the hubs likes big things, including big TV! He’s already looking forward to Black Friday, omg!
Natalie Browne says
Haha! That’s a lot of pork! I think I would cut it into a few portions and freeze it. The posole looks delicious, Angie! I can’t wait to see what you make with the remaining 8 lbs? Happy Fiesta Friday!
I’ve been stalking some of our FF friends’ blogs for some pork recipes. Many good ones! Thankfully son is coming home so he can help eat some of it! ??
Sarah 'n Spice says
Haha, that’s enormous!!!! Too funny 😀 Happy Fiesta Friday!!
Funny things keep happening to me, I don’t get it ?? Happy FF and weekend, Sarah!
It’s hard to resist a good sale! Perhaps some freezer meals are in your future? We never have room for a turkey in our fridge. I find game hens simpler for that reason.?Have a Happy Thanksgiving next week! -Julia
I wish I can go with smaller birds, but these people I’ll be feeding next week expect a monster ? I’m happy to oblige since it’s only once a year but honestly there were times…Once I balked, went out to eat instead, then came home and was sad there was no leftover. I decided then cooking is easier than not having food ?? Happy Thanksgiving, Julia! ?
This made me laugh, Angie! Sometimes they just don’t understand! But just think of all the lovely pork dishes you will be eating ver the next month!
Thanks so much for featuring my little cookies. I really appreciate it very much. 😀
Boys!! They go to Jupiter to get…you know the rest. Except my son, of course ? Love those cookies, crowd pleaser! Btw, you’ll be cohosting next week, right? I haven’t heard from Hilda, have you? I’d better send her an email. If not, I’ll find you another partner. Will let you know ?
So look forward to the fiesta Friday posts, Angie. and you always give me a chuckle. How about a barbie?
That’s great to hear I made you chuckle. Then my job here is done ? I actually thought about barbecue but it’s been too windy out. Though the hubs would prob have fun. Maybe we will! ?
If you ever get to it, let me know. I’ll bring the bubbly. 🙂
The Hopeful Herbalist says
My other half always brings in a queer mix of food if let loose in the super market.Still to check what he bought today! Enjoy your meat feast – he was just trying to help! 😀
You mean he was trying to help himself? Lol, it’s true ever since the son went to college, I haven’t cooked a lot of meat since the daughter eats very little of it. She can live practically on toasts and pasta. Oh well, I guess the man is allowed to have what he wants once in a while ?
The Hopeful Herbalist says
Sorry for joining the party late. We celebrated Thanksgiving this weekend so it was a bit hectic! Loving the features. They are all so yummy looking. I don’t even know which one I want to eat the most. Can’t wait to dive into this week’s bites 🙂
Angie, you made me laugh so much. That sounds hilarious. I don’t know what I’d do with that much meat either! Also that pork hominy bean posole stew looks amazing. You must share.
Better late than never ? It’s getting hectic at my house, too. Thanksgiving in 2 days, yikes! Got my turkey finally last night! As soon as time permits I’ll sit down and write the recipe for the posole, Maggie, promise. I’m a slow recipe writer ?
Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving, Angie! I am too at times! I love when something works out for me perfectly with one go but usually I’m not quite happy and months later I finally get to publish! Seriously I’ve a backload of about 10 recipes that I’m not 100% happy with but I was sick of eating xyz for about 3 weeks in a row and it still not being what I wanted so I wrote down what I could and ideas to adjust but still have to get around to it! Haha ! Sorry for not participating last week – have a really bad upper respiratory infection and conjunctivitis was making the rounds in my family (thankfully, so far I’ve escaped) so I’ve been avoiding doing much cooking – the less food I cough over the better it is for everyone!
Oh no! Hopefully everyone is feeling better by now. There’s some kind of bug going around at my work, too. I’ve been lucky so far to not have caught it, knock on wood it’ll continue. And hey, don’t worry about participating. You can still party with us and view, visit, comment, etc. That’s another form of participation! ??
