Sometimes, you just want a “traditional” meal. Whether it is something you love to cook, or eat(!), or something that you’ve had as a meal since you were a kid, I think we all have at least one of those meals. Continue reading
DIY – finally done!
We finally finished our custom cushions and pillows for the back porch benches we made!
We’ll stage it later to show you all the different looks we can achieve with our convertible design :)
Staying warm for dinner
Quick dinner tonight
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 :)
Spoonburgers, AKA Sloppy Joes!
I’ll be honest; I’ve never tried a Manwich. It hasn’t looked too appealing to me over the years, but that’s just me. I grew up with homemade sloppy joes, which my mother called Spoonburgers. This is, presumably, because you practically have to eat them with a spoon, as they’re definitely sloppy! I love making them all the time, because they’re quick, easy, and last for a few meals.
We are in Miami and headed to the Keys for a long awaited, well deserved vacation!
And don’t worry, you’ll see plenty of posts on our adventures in the near future:)
