What makes these the Ultimate Steak Nachos and makes them better than any restaurant version out there? Two things really: They’re going to be piping hot and just perfect crunchy cheesy melty delish when you set them on the table and you get to put all your fave stuff on them! Beyond that, if you have peeps that want more of this or don’t like that, you can customize portions. Now that’s nachos for the win!
Ok – we’ve had a couple of cooler days here in Minnesota, and I recently made a lot of my Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts so I could use them to spin off several easy peasy meals that would be perfect for hot summer days. And I made a few but then I deviated! I couldn’t resist making these gorgeous Creamy Cajun Stuffed Shells with that final bit of chicken. I’m so excited about them I couldn’t hold off for a more appropriate season – these are probably going down as one of my most fave recipes ever on my site!
I’ve become a pretty big fan of Simon Pearce’s Restaurant and an even bigger fan of the Simon Pearce Vermont Cheddar Soup. And the weird thing is, I’ve never been to the Mill at Simon Pearce, the restaurant in Quechee, Vermont. And never had their Simon Pearce Vermont Cheddar Soup there, either. But no matter, I can have it right here in Minnesota (you betcha) where it seems just as at home on a snowy March night.
I have good news today. See, some of you know I’ve been having some trouble with my joints; typing, while still slow and has to be done just a little at a time is easier and I’m trying to use the voice options on my computer. And cooking has been challenging, but I’m really trying to focus on fun & easy (and lightweight) food. And the best news? I made Old English Potted Cheese and it’s a super easy cheese spread and just to die for.
We are having “Arctic Chill.” It got ccccold last night and right now it’s minus 11. And I have no right to complain because I live in Minnesota, but we’ve been so spoiled this year it’s a shock. We Minnesotans know that a real Arctic Chill can be 34 to 35 below, so there’s that. Maybe we’re actually lucky. But today I feel particularly lucky because I don’t have to go anywhere and I have a piece of Simon Pearce Quechee Quiche I’m going to have for breakfast!
