Day 98: Salads & Tomatillo Pork Chops

For lunch Matt had the leftover tuna salad and I had leftover cucumber salad and a couple of saltines.

After lunch, I made blueberry muffins for Matt’s breakfasts. Aldi had nice looking blueberries yesterday! I’ve finished the 100 pack of muffin liners I bought mid-April. Matt went to H Mart. H Mart is a fair distance away in another county so it is quite a journey! He took one of our coolers and ice packs. It’s not that hot but we do that even in the winter when we shop there.

Actually ate a whole muffin for a snack! I normally maybe have a bite and let Matt have the rest for his breakfasts. They were really good.

For dinner Matt made pork chops, fresh tomatillo sauce and wild rice pilaf with swiss chard.

The In Your Own Backyard host continues to vex me. At least I’m almost done! He goes to the prime suspect’s house. He talks about how he is not the first person to do this and that the neighbors are tired of this. He doesn’t say how he knows they are tired. He then goes on to say that he doesn’t know if the neighbors don’t know who the suspect is or if they just don’t care. That seems like a leap. Maybe they know and do think it’s weird or upsetting but what are they supposed to do? Move because a man who was a suspect in a woman’s disappearance in another city 20 years ago moved in? Then he goes to the door and knocks. A neighbor says something he doesn’t understand then goes into his own house and the host, Chris Lambert, leaps to the conclusion that a person is going inside to get a weapon or to call the police. Wouldn’t the most obvious thing the neighbor might have said is “he’s not home?” or “he doesn’t open the door to strangers” or something along those lines? Who calls the police on someone knocking on their neighbor’s door? I mean, I’m sure someone somewhere has but I wouldn’t think it is the most logical conclusion. Nor is getting a weapon. What an escalation for what could have been someone with the wrong address or early for a get-together at their neighbor’s house. I can’t tell if the host just isn’t a critical thinker or if he is trying to manufacture drama where there is none. Then he talks about a girl who was found murdered who worked for Coca-Cola like the suspect but disappeared a year before he started at another bottling plant. How on earth does he think that’s connected?
