No Margaritas Tonight

Provided that there aren’t other things happening, in our house Tuesdays are known as Tijuana Tuesday. That means serving up tacos or burritos or enchiladas – anything Mexican goes. And Mexican Food (most of the time) is accompanied by Margaritas.

Nostalgic Hamburger Gravy Supper

As you can imagine, I get an in-box full of recipe links every day. One of the things that I’ve noticed is that site after site has a been actively promoting throw back recipes.

Ode to the TV Dinner

Here we are – singing the praises of TV Dinners once more. You would think that we’d be serving up slices of turkey, cornbread stuffing, peas and sweet potatoes, the original offerings in 1953. We aren’t – and for very good, personal reasons.

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.

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.

In the Spirit of TV Dinners

Today is National TV Dinner Day, not to be confused with National Frozen Food Day. While Frozen Food Day celebrates the convenience of all foods frozen and has been observed on March 6th since then President Ronald Regan signed a proclamation in 1984, today is strictly all about the notion of TV Dinners.
