Drunken Pork Chops


Notice the “Drunken” theme lately? My birthday was early last month and I received LOTS of alcohol in all different forms for my birthday. So, wine in The Drunken Noodles (click for link to post) the other night and beer in the Drunken Pork Chops last night. I don’t drink much so expect to see lots…

Blueberry Goat Cheese Salad with Lemon Honey Dressing


If you have read the home page (click for link to page) you know I started the game of making different meals each night as a way to stretch myself and my family with what we were eating. I could see my ASD son heading down the path of beige food and didn’t want him to end up…

Drunken Noodles


I took this picture yesterday. Notice anything? Over the past week or so we have all been noticing that the trees and bushes are showing signs of early color. Ahhhh! It’s too early! It is just a reminder to enjoy these last days of summer before they are gone. I decided to make a simple…

Grilled Peaches with Ice Cream


We had a nice grilled steak last night with some nice Community Share Agriculture (CSA) potatoes and green beans. I love my CSA! I almost never serve dessert after dinner but we were looking for a quick sweet treat that I didn’t feel so awful about my kids having. While we were away there were…

Going Home – It’s All About the Food Edition


If you have ever lived near Wegman’s grocery store and then moved away you will probably understand this. We went back east for a family wedding thus weekend. In the four days we were in town we made 2 or 3 trips to Wegman’s. One was to get prepared food such as subs, pizza and…

Sweet and Sour Spam


Sweet and Sour Spam. Wait, what? Yes, you read that right. Sweet and Sour Spam. This is one of those foods that most people have some sort of love/hate relationship with. It may stir up bad memories of childhood dinners or good memories of grandma frying a slice for breakfast. Wherever you fall on the…

Ground Beef and Broccoli


Back to ground beef again. Don’t have leftover beef for beef and broccoli or just have some ground beef in your refrigerator and still want the flavor or Beef and Broccoli? Ground beef and broccoli is the perfect substitute. It gives you all the flavor of Beef and Broccoli without the expense of the steak….

Picnic at the Beach


With only about a month or so left in beach season I had the urge the other night to squeeze in a quick evening trip to the beach. Because the sun sets at 9:30 pm we were able to grab subs, soda, and chips before heading out at 8:00 pm. I love that the beach…

Reuben Pizza on a Pretzel Crust


I found a corned beef in the freezer! Yes, this is super exciting for my family. It means a break from chicken and ground beef for dinner. I try to only do a big shop once a month. So as we start to get to the bottom of the freezer I am looking for different…

Chicken Shawarma


My family loves Mediterranean flavors and since it is summer it is a perfect time for grilling! We de-boned the chicken thighs and removed the skin before marinating the chicken. You can buy the chicken this way but for the price of $.77 a pound versus $2.29 a pound I decided we could do it…

Changes at Walt Disney World


Sunday is my fun day! I write about my family or something that is going on in our world. Lots of changes to the Walt Disney World theme parks were announced at the D23 Expo, a conference for those who love all things Disney, in California last week. I LOVE Disney. Let’s start with that….
