RAINY DAY CHICKEN

“Some people feel the rain.  Others just get wet.” The above quote is attributes to both Roger Miller and to Bob Marley.  Talk about a full spectrum conundrum. Additionally, it’s been raining on and off for about a month.  Areas of the state where I live are flooded.  We have no such problem in our…

TEX-MEX BURGERS

“It only burns for a little while.” One of the things that people find out when they first go to a restaurant that serves food in the southwestern style is that the food isn’t hot (see spicy).  That would be some Thai and Chinese  food.  Even then a person can request the degree of heat…

BREAKFAST TRIO

“Necessary deception:  Telling your husband your food is spicy so he won’t ask for a taste.” The other morning I got this brilliant idea for a breakfast dish, if you don’t mind eating southwestern food for breakfast.  Yes, I’m back in my using-what’s-on-hand mode. I found a package of celery stalks, about 10, along with…

TUNA VEGGIE PATTIES

“You can tune a guitar but you can’t tuna fish.  Unless you play bass.” Recently I made a LARGE batch of tuna salad.  OK.  It was wonderful the first two days then quickly descended into good.  I got to wonder if there was some way to tweak this great salad to nudge it back up…

TOMATO VINAIGRETTE

A REAL CHEESY MEAL

“Luck exists in leftovers.”   Japanese Proverb Well, I’m back to leftovers.  We’re leaving on a short, 5 day trip to visit a granddaughter and her husband.  One of my major projects after I stopped the mail and alerted the bank of our travel plans, involved eating up the leftovers.  One of my previous posts…

LENTIL STEW

“Goals don’t start in our brain, they start in our heart.” Big goal for this grandma – find a bunch of easy and interesting side dishes to give a bit of spark to the usual.  Here’s a goodie.  The goodest part is the nutritional value of lentils.    It’s a super food, especially when combined…

SHEPHERDS PIE

“Never try to teach a pig to sing.  You waste your time and you annoy the pig.”  Mark Twain I think this post is about experimenting.  That’s something people do when they want an answer to the question, what could go wrong? I’m rushing headlong into an experiment anyway because I remember my husband saying…
