How is your Tuesday evening going? I cooked us a great dinner of Tony’s Grilled Rosemary Chicken Tenders and a pasta/vegetable medley. We are waiting for Cote DePablo’s final episode of NCIS and we will be watching The Voice delayed by an hour. Later we will have something sweet to complete the evening. I hope you are all doing swell.
Cooking my teriyaki garlic beef and veggies on the griddle. Trying to emulate the hibachi technique you find at Japanese restaurants. According to my wife it was good, I thought it turned out well too. We will try it again soon. For desert we are having some rice pudding.
There’s nothing like a home cooked meal to right what is wrong with you. Its made with the greatest ingredient…love. When you need some comfort then a plate or bowl of awesomeness can make you feel so good. We have done some good home cooking here lately and I have enjoyed every bite, every morsel.
We have had take away or have gone out to eat several times this week. Home cooking is my preferred meal of choice. I love to cook breakfast, which is my personal favourite. Tonight for dinner I prepared a casserole of quinoa and tuna that according to my wife was pretty good. It was made from things we had on hand in the pantry. You can eat well all the time if you are prepared for it.
My wife and I teamed up to make French onion soup tonight. Its a slow cooker recipe which we have made in the past. For a snack she made hummus for the first time and we paired it with some pita chips. Making food at home is fun and is cheap especially when you are on a tight budget.
Tonight my wife who is the queen of the Crock Pot is making some Brunswick Stew for supper. Like most soups and stews a pairing of cornbread will make this meal really special. It’s giving this amazing aroma in the house right now and I am getting hungry. Nom, nom, nom!
I am doing homemade pizza tonight. We did this last week and really enjoyed it. Here’s how I make it happen.
- Canned Pizza Crust – Rolled/stretched out to a Pampered Chef round baking stone.
- Pizza or Spaghetti Sauce
- Sauteed Pork Sausage with finely chopped onions
- Sauteed Mushrooms in butter with a little bit of sausage drippings
- Italian Cheese Blend of Mozzarella, Parmesan, Asiago and Romano
- Italian Seasonings Sprinkled on Top
Bake according to the pizza crust directions. Its delish’ and fun to make. You can substitute any of the ingredients or even add to the pizza. Have fun making it.
