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…. It means they get exactly what they want and they look forward to these nights. These nights are great for cleaning out the refrigerator too. Use any last bits of meat, cheese, salads, and…

Chicken Cordon Bleu Sliders

We are still waiting for Covid test results. I think it was easier waiting for our children to be born than it is waiting for these test results. At least then we had the anticipation of something good coming. Right now we are in kind of this limbo. Can we go get groceries on Thursday?…

Chicken Strip Wraps with Boom Boom Sauce

We are getting to the bottom of our freezer! In our No Buy June we are cleaning out our freezer that we used to stock up on during the “Stay Home. Stay Safe.” time. We know that there may be another time that we are limited in movements again so we are cleaning out the…

Chicken Salad – No Buy June

One of the things we do twice each year is a no buy month. What I mean is we try to eat solely out of what we have on hand only grocery shopping for a few fresh items once a week. We need to clean out our freezers (refrigerator freezer and chest freezer). With all…

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…
