Cowboy Biscuit Casserole

Good Day Monday! How are you today? On the National Front, today is Caviar Day. I don’t know about you, but these days with the soaring cost of everything, Caviar is not on the horizon. Not even the cheap “Lump Fish” variety.

More than Just a Baked Potato

Hello there! Wishing you a Peaceful Memorial Day. I started to say Happy Memorial Day, but with all the strife and suffering in this world and the loss that Memorial Day represents, “Happy” just didn’t seem appropriate. Especially in light of what has happened in Texas. Too many families will not be celebrating a 3-Day Weekend.

Crunchy Taco Pie Delight

Did you know that today is National California Strawberry Day? Now I’m assuming we are suppose to celebrate the whole idea of planting strawberries or enjoy the blossoms that might be forming on existing plants. Lord knows we aren’t harvesting Strawberries.

Poor Man’s Mashed Potato Casserole

Have y’all met my husband? He’s smart, educated, traveled and yet if you were to look up Meat and Potato Eater in the dictionary, you’d probably find his picture there. His Midwestern upbringing is very much ingrained in his nature.

Beefy Midwest Macaroni Hotdish Skillet

Thirty-five years ago today, I married my best friend. It’s been an amazing adventure, filled with highs and lows, shouts and whispers. Anyone who says they have the perfect marriage or never fight are either kidding themselves or they live on different planets. Marriage isn’t about the good times, it’s about working through the rough patches with your love still intact.

The Beauty of a Cowboy Tater Casserole

Today is National Pina Colada Day. As everyone knows, Pina Coladas are a sweet, rum-based cocktail that includes Cream of Coconut and Pineapple Juice. If you are expecting a recipe, think again. While I do like Malibu Rum (coconut rum) in a tall glass with Pineapple Juice, that’s about as close as we come to a Pina Colada in our house.

Wow – Cheesy Italian Beef Pie

Today’s National Day needs no recipe. It’s National Grape Popsicle Day. Easy enough. Make up a batch of Grape Cool-Aid. Pour it into plastic cups, place in the freezer. Once the liquid begins to freeze, insert popsicle sticks, continue to freeze until solid. Too much trouble? That’s okay, you’ll find popsicles in the frozen section of the grocery store.

Castaway Skillet Supper

Hey there, how’s life in 2021 been so far? We’re still on such a roller coaster ride in California, half the time I don’t know if I’m coming or going. We’re open, we’re closed. Stay home unless your skiing. Depressed? Shop retail. Just don’t go inside a church, because that’s where the virus thrives.

Simple Beef Risotto Supper

Every now and again, I get a craving for something simple yet not typical for supper. Beefy Corn Rice-A-Roni is a great example. Just three simple ingredients – a box of beef Rice-A-Roni, a pound of ground beef and a can of corn.

Not Another Taco Tuesday

Today is the first day of December. That means National Pie Day and Eat a Red Apple Day. It’s also Rosa Parks Day. Before we get into all the ins and outs of today, let’s just stop a moment to honor Rosa Parks. If ever there were an example of dignified courage, it is Rosa Parks.
