Steve made dinner. Pork cutlets, dipped in beaten egg and mustard, breaded with ground almonds and fried, served with a little couscous and a lot of salad. Delish, and totally no-carb-friendly (well, South Beach, anyway). Steve's lost 16 lbs and I've lost 11 since the beginning of January. I love this diet.
We just finished watching The Beatles' first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show, thanks to the magic of DVD. Steve was only 3 when it aired in 1964, but I was 8 and clearly remember lying on the living room floor watching while my 16-year-old sister Judy screamed like crazy. My parents just shook their heads. I recommend the DVD--the entire show is on it, including Frank Gorshin doing impersonations, weird European acrobats, an as-yet unknown Davy Jones as the Artful Dodger in a scene from Oliver, and vintage commercials for Aero Shave, Cold-Water All and numerous Pillsbury products. The doughboy hadn't been born yet--still a bun in the oven, I guess.
It takes a man from the South to know how to cook a pork chop.
