We’re talking about Fall, of course! It seems like the summer has flown by and that means Fall is coming! The weather is oh-so-slowly cooling off, with today being no exception. Our thermometer is ready 68 degrees and it’s mid-afternoon!
Tonight was a typical weeknight dinner conundrum – we wanted something really good but didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen prepping. The solution? Chili we made and froze from last winter and jalapeño cornbread waffles.
We have been running and gunning today, which after weeks of being cooped up in the house after my knee surgery has been GREAT!
I finally broke down and went to Kroger with Trey to grab groceries for the week. I had refused to use one of the motorized carts for the last two weeks, but knew trying to traverse the new massively expanded Kroger would lead to a stranger with a crutch upside their head! Today I decided to go ahead and use a cart (which are usually full of people who DO NOT need them) and hilarity ensued. We’ll leave it with the photo of me looking like a grandmother below…
We didn’t want to be cooking and prepping for hours and hours tonight, so we just adjusted a few recipes and made it work effortlessly.
We had a half rack of ribs in the freezer that we ended up cooking nice and slow in the oven. We made mac and cheese, but spiced it up with a few tablespoons of pimiento cheese. We also made scratch cheddar biscuits with salted garlic butter on top.
It doesn’t have to be all homemade to be something “different” – just adjust and add to a few classics to make it work :)
