Hi guys, I’ve been a bit awol lately; I’ve been a little under the weather, so I hope you’re bearing with me. I’m feeling better, but it seems hard to stay on track and I’m sleeping off and on pretty much around the clock. And it’s been hard to get excited about anything. Although I gotta admit, I did get pretty excited about these Feta Stuffed Harissa Sliders. I actually want them again already.
I was taken aback when someone in my life said to me, “A sandwich isn’t dinner.” To clarify, she meant dinner as in the evening meal. So never have I given that any thought about that before, I had to stop and wrap my mind around it. I’ve made sandwiches for dinner a kazillion times. And right then and there I decided I wasn’t going to guilt myself at this late stage of my life. Especially when the sandwiches are these Bistro Steak Subs.
Yanno what’s happening now? Octoberfest. A celebration that I usually don’t think about much, or when I do I think about it until too late. I think that’s because it’s not in October, at least most of it isn’t. Octoberfest runs from mid to late September until the first Sunday in October. And so every year after Octoberfest passes, I think “Wow” I should have made something special to honor the German heritage that comes down from my Grandpa Herman. This year, I did. I made Obatzda – Bavarian Cheese Spread.
I still remember the first time I had this Classic Buffalo Chicken Dip at a party. I was kind of blown away! I think it was the first time I had any kind of a dip that had chicken in it, for one! So right away that was a whole new concept for me. It was served from a slow cooker (love that for a big party) and rich and creamy and spicy! That one was actually VERY spicy….this one’s a bit tamer.
A while back, you might remember if you follow me (join in if you want; link-ups are to the right in the sidebar) ) I was all over these Grilled Blackened Cajun Chicken Breasts. I promised I’d give you a few more options on how to use that chicken; see I made a bunch and then spun off different meals, meal prep fashion. Today it hit me that before summer is over and our beautiful fall days turn into w-w-w-w winter…oh how I hate the thought of it….I’d better give you the final couple of recipes in the series. One of my absolute favorites of meals I made is this Cajun Chicken Flatbread Pizza.
