As I write this post my sink is full. There is flour spread haphazardly on my countertops. There are toys everywhere. There are at least two loads of laundry that need folding. Maybe three. But who’s counting? Weeds need pulling outside. Our carpets need vacuuming. The bathrooms need cleaning. And our realtor could text me at any moment to say someone wants to see our house in an hour.
But I’m ignoring all that because… well… I have been wanting to share this recipe and I cannot wait any longer!
What a whirlwind these past couple of weeks have been.
Chili recipes are out there by the thousands… probably by the millions!
You might as well be picking a star out of the sky.
I’m telling you… I’m dead keen on quinoa.
There is something about “sticks” that make food more desirable to my munchkins… a boring turkey sandwich becomes exciting and gourmet when I cut it into squares and stick a toothpick into each one. Juice is yummy in a glass, but freeze it on a stick so you can lick it?! SO MUCH BETTER… right? Candy… so fun to eat. Candy on a stick (i.e. A Lollipop)… a special treat. Thus, chicken served right on the skewers it was cooked on… MAGNIFICENT!!
I love when they get excited about their dinner before it enters their little mouths.
Well, life didn’t really give me lemons…
But I did go to make pancakes and discovered my box mix was all out except for a few sad tablespoons at the bottom of the box. (No, I am not against box mixes for making pancakes… if you have kids, you probably are not either… at least if you’re honest with yourself…)
Well, no box mix meant either no pancakes OR…
Making my own?!
Once I got the right consistency and flavor in my batter I cooked a few trial pancakes and I think I’ve found a go-to recipe for myself!
“Mojo” is not a word I use often…
Okay, I never use that word.
But apparently Bobby Flay likes to use it to describe the sauce in this recipe of his…
And let me just say… call it what you like, it’s DELICIOUS!
Some mashed potatoes and cheesy broccoli on the side and you’ve got a meal!
Where did this past week go?!?
I haven’t a clue… if you know, let me know…
I’ve been busy working on a final Italian Sausage recipe while moving onto the “J” recipes!
Check out the CALZONE! Quick, easy, make ahead, cheap, and DELICIOUS!… Did I get everything in there…??
This recipe does it all. Except maybe the dishes… you’ll have to do those yourself… or enlist someone to help you.
Just tempt them with these calzones… they’ll have no choice but to grant you a night off from dish-duty!
These are EASY because I don’t have you make your own dough… I experimented with two store-bought doughs and was happy with both of them. They yielded slightly different results but BOTH were tasty!
