Croque Monsieur


Day 59 – Wow! The internet is crazy lately. It seems like no one can agree on anything. Open the country. Keep it closed. Wear a mask. Don’t wear a mask. Sheep. Snowflakes. UGH!!! I am trying to avoid the news and most forms of online discussions lately because the fighting is really upsetting to…

Ham & Cheese Braid


Day 55 – It is predicted to stay cooler through the middle of May. With the highs struggling to get to 50 degrees people are getting a little stir crazy here. The nights are getting longer – this was at 8:50 pm the other night. The beaches are open but so far people are mostly…

Caramelized Onion, Feta, and Spinach Pizza


Day 44 –  My daughter had her graduation ceremony for community college yesterday. It was held virtually. She was so proud of herself because she has always struggled in school but she graduated with honors AND Phi Theta Kappa distinction. She would have had cords and she was so looking forward to this. We made…

Onion Salad Burger


What is a super simple meal that you can customize in so many ways to make a new dish each time you serve it? Hamburgers! Don’t stick to just the American cheese, lettuce, onion, and tomato. Mix it up and try all different things on it. This burger was built because we didn’t want to…

Chicken Caesar Hawaiian Roll Sliders


I love Hawaiian Roll sliders in all their forms. We have had them with corned beef, hamburgers, roast beef, and ham. We are still on a chicken and pork kick in our house so I needed something to make for dinner that was quick and easy. I have made something similar to this in the…

Grilled Classic Reuben


I had one frozen brisket left from my St. Patrick’s Day stock up. They are perfect for this time of year because you can throw them in the slow cooker and let them cook without heating up your home. We made the brisket and decided we wanted Reubens with the brisket. The recipe that follows…

Ham and Cheese Stromboli


They had full boneless hams on sale recently for $.99 a lb! That is a super price here. So, I bought one and cut it into pieces before freezing so that we could use if for different dishes – baked ham, soups, casseroles, etc…. We took out one of the smaller pieces for dinner the…

Hamburger Stroganoff Pizza


Halloween came very early to our house this year. I needed to have both kids ready for Halloween about a week early. My son had a Halloween concert at the end of the week. He was Buddy, the elf, from the movie Elf. Then my daughter had a Halloween Feis (rhymes with mesh, and Irish…

Flavorful Hot Chicken Salad Sandwich


So, as we close in on the end of the month I am trying really hard to buy as little extra as possible. I had all the ingredients in my refrigerator except the loaf of bread which was on sale this week! Yes! I could have baked a loaf but I was trying to make…

Grilled Reuben


One of the ways we have been battling with what to have for dinner when our life is so busy is to cook a big cut of meat such as a corned beef, ham, even a turkey and then slicing them up for different meals. This cuts down on the time needed to cook a…

Thanksgiving Sliders


I still had a whole turkey in the freezer and knew time was going to be tight this week. We roasted the turkey and split it up into portions to use and freeze. It has really helped make dinners (and lunches) a bit easier. Both of my kids thankfully love turkey sandwiches and happily will…

Reuben Roll Ups


Happy First Day of Spring! Let’s hope the temperature tops 40 degrees today! Leftover Corned Beef is almost unheard of in my house but sometimes I make an extra large brisket just to have leftovers. Reubens are always a great way to use the leftover Corned Beef. This is a twist on those Reubens. Cut…
