I realize I’ve been neglecting this site a little more than my others, but it doesn’t mean my love affair with food is over. Far from it. So I thought I’d give you a little photo montage of the noms I’ve been enjoying since we last spoke. Yes, I am one of those food nerds…

So I was in the frozen food isle of the grocery store today looking for dog bones (bones to GIVE to the dog!) and I was please to see this: Amy’s new leaner lunches. I love Amy’s line of frozen foods, but they’re sometimes pretty high in fat, especially saturated fat. In fact, my Doc…

Squash and Brown Rice

This was inspired by a grilled cheese sandwich I made earlier. I liked the combo of squash, mushrooms, and spinach. So I combined them all with some green beans and brown rice. Start the brown rice as it takes a long time to cook. Follow package directions: Sauté in a little oil (I like Enova)…

We’ve been going here for years too. What can I say, we’re creatures of habit. My favorite dish is the Chicken Chow Fun: Greg likes the Sizzling Go Bar: The egg rolls are wonderful, about 90% of the time, but there are times when they’re so greasy I can’t eat them. For lunch I like…

This needs work, but it’s still pretty good. I did use chicken broth, but it would have been just as good if not better had I used vegetable broth. So it’s veggie. Share on Facebook

That’s just batty

Last night I was making the brine for my turkey and we decided that the pan I had wasn’t going to be big enough for the whole bird, plus brine and I don’t feel comfortable just putting it in a cooler. So Greg went downstairs to our kitchen storage area (most of the basement) and…

Fancy Tuna Melt

Fancy Tuna Melt

Ok it’s not really that fancy. But it’s got a new spin. The Malt Shop makes a tuna sandwich that it similar to this. I made some changes though. For example, theirs has cashews. They’re delish in it and if I had some, I’d have used them. But I didn’t. If you’re not a tuna…
