Let’s talk about Dad’s Traditional Welsh Cheese Rarebit. On a rare occasion when we were children, my Dad would cook for us. It was kind of a big deal, always on a Saturday, and probably always when Mom was gone, maybe running errands or something. It was a novelty, but really the reason we kids remember it was because Dad made it fun. Like an adventure.
Merry Christmas, everyone! Here it is, Christmas Eve Day, and I thought I’d show you one of my favorite Christmas Eve dinners, this time done in the Instant Pot. It’s Chili. The Best Instant Pot Chili, to be exact. I know, it’s strange to some people to have Chili as a Christmas Eve dinner.
I think I’ve been in kind of a dream or maybe an alternate reality here at my folk’s in South Dakota. It’s November and the weather’s super mild. Not even sweater weather. I could almost be in denial except there’s no denying other fall signals. Leaves, for one. Sporting events for another. And that means snacks, amirite? How about a little smooth, creamy tasty Pub Cheese or Beer Cheese? Yes, puhlese!
If you want to bring a meal in on a budget, it’s hard to go wrong with pork loin chops. Except they can easily be dry as toast if you’re not careful. Not these Herb Rubbed Beer Brined Pork Chops with Roasted Potatoes (and yeah, I know that title’s a mouthful!) They’re moist, succulent, tender and flavorful.
St. Paddy’s is just around the corner, so it’s time to think about partying just a little, isn’t it? When I was a kid, that meant anything green. Green ice-cream cones, cupcakes tinted green, and green beer.
