Looking ahead to next weekend (because really, is it ever too early to start thinking about the weekend?), these spuds would be an excellent, easy, and CHEAP addition to your Super Bowl spread. That’s assuming you’ll be watching the game. I’ll watch it too, I guess – though I couldn’t care less which team wins or loses. For me, the Super Bowl is a good excuse to get together with my favorite neighbor friends and drink beer on a mid-winter Sunday afternoon. Of course, the junk food and commercials are fun too.
I am planning on lightening up a little bit though, so I made one of my favorite meat loaves this weekend. This recipe makes a huge meat loaf, just so you know. I usually make the whole thing, then divide it in half and freeze one for a rainy day. Leftovers make fabulous sandwiches!
Fresh, Frugal, Fabulous
I think we should take a break. Heaven knows I’ve enjoyed our time together and lovely memories of you will linger on (mostly on my thighs). Fondly I’ll remember you, dressed in rich gravy – you, with creamy mayonnaise and crisp lettuce on toasty nine grain bread – you, in a steamy, homemade broth with thick egg noodles and chunks of carrots. It’s been fun. But it’s time for me to move on. It’s not you, it’s me.
I’ll fully admit that I’m a little predictable, so judging from today’s cold and rainy weather, you had to know it was coming. We’re having soup for dinner tonight!
Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or haven’t been grocery shopping in a week or two) you’re probably aware of the Fall Extravaganza that began today at all of the Balistreri Sendik’s Stores. The sale ad this week is incredible! I was inspired with so many blog-worthy menu ideas, I had a hard time deciding where to begin. But as you can tell, I’m chatting about Fish and Chips today. Even though it’s not Friday. What rule says we have to wait until Friday night for fish fry?
I hope you all found the time to cruise the meat and seafood sale on Tuesday! When I stopped by the Mequon store at noon, the meat counter was packed with carnivorous shoppers snapping up bargains (“beefing” up their freezers, maybe?! I know, sorry). My freezer is now well-stocked with baby backs, pork tenderloin, and ground chuck. A value pack of boneless chicken breasts also found its way into my cart. I’m using half of it for today’s recipe: Chicken Gyros with Yogurt Feta Sauce.
Long time, no blog! I’ve missed you! I was out of town for a long weekend, and I’m happy to be back today to share some good eats with you all.
While driving home from the orthodontist yesterday I made the colossal mistake of asking my children what they wanted to have for dinner. If you want to cause controversy of any kind amongst the Dam’Kids, just pole all three at the same time over their opinions on ANYTHING – it’s practically like sending trouble an engraved invitation.
I’m going to play along with the heat and humidity by whipping up this simple and light grilled seafood supper for the DamFam tonight. [More...] This meal is ideal for a day like this; there is very little prep work involved, practically NO dirty dishes, and I won’t even have to fire up the oven
