Brown Sugar Chop-My Fav Cheapies

Saw this idea elsewhere, so decided to try it out. Boy I am glad I did.  Just get some bone in Pork chops, I always wait until a good deal comes for center cuts…THEN..

  • Preheat broiler.
  • Put your favorite spices on Pork Chop.
  • Rub brown sugar on chop.  Don’t be shy! I use almost 3Tablespoons.
  • Put pats of Margarine or Butter on top to melt down onto Brown sugar.
  • Put in broiler for say, 6 minutes.

The bottom part that rests on the foil will rub the brown sugar in..so you can lay pats of butter on the bottom side,  spread on the top side.

Turns out GREAT my best way to make them!  CHEAP, with a can of Lima beans cooked with butter melted into them.  Depends on price of Pork Chops.  This meal cost me about $1.33.  The margarine and fat melted into the brown sugar and spices makes a delicious sauce..though not a whole lot of it.  Good enough to dip the pork in.  It’s not nearly as sweet as you would think, either.

Micro Person X

My car has been licensed for a year.  Tags expired  BUT.. the front end jacked up.  Me and my cousin looked at it, it was the Control Arm Bushings, mainly.  What to do?  I’m too poor to even license it, and this happens a LOT to Micro People!  The security Guard’s neighbor paid $600 to get her car licensed, after letting the tags expire.

Well, I found a good guy on Craigs List.  I’ve always had success with mobile mechanics, but the degree has varied, and the price.  Man.. this guy was the best one YET!  I already had the parts from Ebay, but the bushings were so bad I was afraid to take the car across town.  A tow cost $90 to the shops, which are frankly,  rapists.

There are Lots of Micro People.  Many times, the Mobile Mechanics are Micro Persons themselves.  Just trying for some side money, then they get off of there.  This guy was great, did both sides for $100 oh what joy!  I gonna have him do the ball joints next, might as well do the whole front end.  It is aging,and it makes me feel safer!  What a day of luck for ME.  Micro Person X.

The Mexicanos

The only thing I miss about Northeast is the Mexican restaurants.  “You know who” keeps forgetting about the cool stuff the Mexicans contribute.  Like their FOOD.  It is arguably the best cooking in all the world!  Cilantro, beef, onion and spices.  Pork marinated with pineapple.  Beans cooked down to perfection.  Jalapeno.  Mexicans built up this country!  The worked in all of the factories, farms, and have great literature and art.

Now Mr. “Bull-In-A-China-Closet” is messing it up! I miss their little family restaurants and stands.  I like the sound of their language being spoken.  This morning, I woke up with that craving.  Some lunch truck tacos, or maybe even a Mexican breakfast.  The Pollo Asado I had down in Mexico was the best stuff I ever ate! Now they persist in this foolishness.  Maybe, with that stupid wall, they will not let Americanos, down into Mexico!

As usual, the world is doing stuff that doesn’t suit me!  The outside world is a wild horse,  that does what it wants, all we can do is try to cope.  It is surely hard for us Micro Persons.

 

The Micro People

That’s what I am. One of the Micro people.  I’m surrounded by Micro People.  Cigarette bums, Fast Food workers.  Clerks that can’t afford to buy any of the stuff from the store they work in.  I’m like a bug scrabbling around here, with the other bugs.  Living out, our bug lives.

What’s gonna happen now? Trump want to waterboard my ass? Use me for target practice?  I know.. I’m supposed to shit myself over the Chiefs.

But really.  It isn’t so bad being a Micro Person.  I eat good, sleep good.  My joy is my computer.  I like to write.

Disclaimer

Note..my aim is to write games and graphic novels.   NO I never met a bunch of crazy women on “Bus Adventures.”    That KC ATA has been great, and I am very pleased with them.  It’s a far better deal than I had imagined!  I am going to have another.. “Bus Adventure” today..and go down to McDonalds!

Eh, might as well spice up my pretty ordinary life.

Bus to the VA Medical Center

I take the BUS to the VA for my appointment.  This trip is interesting because it covers one of the worst areas of the East Side.  From Troost and Armour, to the VA Medical Center, which is at Linwood and Van Brunt.   Didn’t take any pictures on the way there, because the bus windows were so grimy, but it’s one of the worst areas.  MANY boarded up houses, and abandoned business.  There are huge piles of trash sitting out on the curb, laying around all over the place.  One of the worst areas for Urban Blight, but still, life goes on there.  People own homes.  Work, live their lives.  But it’s a terrifying part of the city.    I take the TroostMax NORTH.. then the 35 Bus EAST.. to arrive at the VA.
