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!
I have yet to meet a noodle that pesto didn’t get along with.
Come to think of it… I have yet to meet a noodle that I didn’t get along with.
If you’ve never tried short ribs before… it’s time to take the plunge. They will take you into slow-cooked bliss and you’ll never look back. I feel it’s essential to my well being to have these at least a few times every year.
Chili recipes are out there by the thousands… probably by the millions!
You might as well be picking a star out of the sky.
Are you ready to play a game? Well, you’ll have to read quite a bit more if you want to know what it is. If you’re too curious to wait, I put the game in bold letters so you can easily scroll down and find it. But what fun is that? If you do read on until you find it and you don’t enjoy yourself…. well, let me know and I’ll give you your money back.
This is the second time I’ve posted a calzone recipe here on A to Z.
My family voted unanimously that they were better this time around. You’re gonna love ’em!
This is a “My tomatoes are going bad and I need to use them ASAP or they’re going in the trash” recipe.
I have to admit that sometimes I’m a bit jealous of other languages. They just sound more refined than the English language.
Or maybe more romantic.
When I first considered what food to choose for “Q”, the only thing that came to mind at first was “Quail”…. hmm….
Never in my life have I woken up and thought, “Hm, I think I’ll make quail for dinner today.”
Think about your last trip to the supermarket. Did you see quail in the butcher case? Did you even think to look? I didn’t.
That is why, Q is NOT for Quail.
Q is for QUINOA!!!
When we go to a Thai restaurant I pretty much know what I’m going to order before I walk in the door…
Today the chance for rain in Phoenix went from 30 percent to 20 percent…
My “Gigi” (my husband’s grandma) said it best: “It never rains at 20 percent”. Sadly, I know she’s right.
It was slightly overcast yesterday for an hour or two and I thought…. YES!! The rain is going to come! My hopes were shattered today when that percentage changed. I’ve started sucking on ice cubes to keep myself cool. I don’t mind the heat for the first few weeks but then it starts to make me tired and more easily irritated… by August I’m so ready for the heat to be over I can hardly stand it.
Besides ice cubes, the foods that sound best right now are those that are cool and refreshing… like chilled Pico di Gallo!
