I grew up in the Midwest in the 60’s eating various and assorted “loose-meat” sandwiches, mainly Maid-Rites or Tavern Burgers. I never heard the word Sloppy Joe until I was an adult and moved away, and then no-one seemed to know what a Maid-Rite was!
So it all started when I asked the folks what they wanted for dinner. That’s like usually like pulling teeth, but there we were in August: temperature 96 degrees. My Dad immediately said “Swiss Steak.”
This Honey Sesame Chicken in the Instant Pot has saved me over and over in the last few months. When the hunger-crazed octogenarians (my folks) begin circling around 5:00 p.m. like sharks and the day’s been too hectic for anything else, I think Honey Sesame Chicken.
When I lived in the Southwest, I used to miss “Baked Beans.” It seemed that anytime I ate out and ordered beans as a side, they were either Cowboy Beans – Frijoles Charros, or some kind of Barbecued Baked Beans. Now that I’m in the Midwest, I miss those Cowboy Beans. Go figure, huh?
Hey, I’m a planner but this still happens to me! It’s 4:30 and I open the fridge to make dinner and *duh* I forgot to take out the chicken to thaw. The ravenous octogenarians (my folks, or maybe for you, it’s your kids; I’ve been there, too…) and are emitting hangry noises, circling like sharks ready for the kill.
Hi ya’ll. Are you getting ready for Ursa? The winter blizzard that’s already hit New Mexico, Colorado & Wyoming and is sweeping through the Midwest? Crazy. Well, here’s a great recipe to make and cook long and slow while you’re waiting out all that snow. Sweet & Sour Country Style Ribs.
So are you guys morning people? Not me. Nope. Not ever. But I love breakfast and brunch dishes any time of day. Here’s a great little Asparagus & Chive Frittata that’s easy enough to make anytime. (Even if you’re only half awake!)
