Grilled Pork Loin Sandwiches


I have been reading on the internet about many people planning for the next round of Covid-19 and/or the flu by buying extra groceries and stocking up. I haven’t really thought of this as we have our little pantry that I use to try and only buy things on sale when I can. We are…

Make Your Own Sandwich/Sub Night


My family loves it when we have food that they can assemble themselves. Waffle bars, salad bars, sundae bars, sandwich/sub bars….

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders
