Twasn’t a cooking week this week. It was a lot of leftovers and my husband’s chili. He is a pretty good cook as well, and no one can hold a candle to his chili, chicken cheese enchiladas, Spanish rice, or fideo’s. He made a big pot of his chili this past Sunday. Perfect for the… Continue reading Queen Egg Roll
All of us are quite familiar with the number of ads that come across our social media feeds. The data collection is so well-honed, the programs think they know us better than we know ourselves at times. Targeted ads are helpful, and hindering as well since we don’t often get introduced to something outside our… Continue reading Chefclub Recipe
Papa Joe is an excellent cook! I don’t think I’ve ever had anything he has made I didn’t like. He has been a great teacher as well. Some day I hope to feel as confident as he does in just grabbing some things and whipping it up into a treat of a meal. When we… Continue reading Lasagna Time
We are having a strategic planning meeting tomorrow at work. At the last one there were some candies and mints for us. I have to admit I had hoped there would be a donut or muffin waiting for us. I know it was wishful thinking; I will say though I always try to have a… Continue reading Double Oven Kind of Evening
Having a vegetable garden in the back yard is a great thing. Not only is it fun, it can provide some very good fresh from the vine produce. The trick is planning and planting. Planning the layout of the garden, and then planting the seeds to maximize the growing season. I do plan and try… Continue reading They Just Keep A Comin’
It took a little motivation, but I got back in the kitchen this week. As I had mentioned last week, work is kicking my behind so much that, when I get home, I’m just plumb tuckered out. Going into the kitchen to prep, cook, and clean just isn’t appealing. When I went to cook dinner… Continue reading A First Time Foray
I’m not sure if a burner was turned on this week. Wait, it was. I made frito pie yesterday. That again was just heating, not cooking. Wait, it was a little bit of cooking. It was mainly heating up some cans of chili, but I did embellish a little bit. To the chili I added… Continue reading No Cooking, Just Heating
Earlier this week I wrote about the DCI Gang. They were at our home last night for the BBQ social. As predicted, there was good food and even better conversation. It is a group who just picks up where they last left off. The husband was the grill master on his smoker/charcoal grill. He made… Continue reading Burgers, Brownies, and Pies, Oh My!
Still in DC for work. Busy evening. My post for today is a picture of some tasty treats we had a break time this afternoon. I’m wondering how I might recreate them. I’ll find a way I’m sure.
Being given permission to cook in another’s kitchen is like walking into a foreign land. There are items that are familiar, just like home, but nothing is in the place one expects. Other things are wholly unfamiliar even if the utility of an item is the same. That is how it felt last week when… Continue reading Maneuvering in a Foreign Land
