salmon with cheese orzo

March 21, 2013

  Three days into my challenge to stretch just under $100 as far as I knew how, and I decided not to follow my list. Well, not to a tee… I bought Salmon, and I got parsley and a few other greens that I was going to try to make this other salmon dish with, […]

If you are anything like me, you over-bought for Thanksgiving in a bewildering way. I managed to shop for carrots and celery twice when my sister had asked me only to make on tray of stuffing (which only requires one cup of diced celery) none of which required carrots. I did have a serious stomach bug issue […]

I made this “glaze” but then I didn’t… glaze anything with it. I drizzled it on top of our foods. So I suppose it’s a “dressing” not a glaze. This meal was a pantry/freezer meal, I try to keep enough meat in the freezer to make at least two totally different meals. I wanted to […]

I suggest that you stop what you are doing, and make yourself some beer batter – or for a possibly more reasonable suggestion, just add it to the next meal that you make…I would go with about half, or even a quarter of the amount that I made for the fish and chips that I […]

salmon, herbed basmati and asparagus

I decided to try roasting salmon on top of slices of lemon. I heard somewhere that it makes the fish stay more moist while it’s cooking. It also is a really good use of already zested lemons. I had a few that were kicking around in the crisper drawer, and sans peel there are fewer […]

sweet potato stir fry with honey & ginger sauce

September 30, 2012

As Autumn moves in, some flavors best kept to cooler nights, and mainstays during holiday meals come into play. For now, it’s sweet potato. Sometimes the fridge is bare. Sometimes it’s packed to the gills. Sometimes you have more beers than anything else (or maybe that’s just us…), sometimes more cheese. It’s a magnificent thing, […]

Told ya that canning was my thing last week… if I were to channel my dad’s sense of humor hardcore, I’d say that ‘canning was my jam’ get it? Jam? Canning? Yup, could’ve saved you from that, but chose not to! I found a grocery store (Market Basket, to be specific) that has the cheapest […]

sweet potato fries

When I’m out, and I order fries, I usually look for sweet potato, or if they don’t have that, I’m gonna wanna see spicy, or curly, or some other descriptive word next to the word “fries”. They have a tendancy to make me feel happier about wolfing down fries, and also… I like the taste […]

Dejavu, all over again, right? You just saw these rolls. Why do you care to see them again? Because I’ve got a few minutes and I decided to break these things down into various posts so that I can ‘splain myself, and pass the time until my food needs to come out of the oven. […]

peach sunday

Maybe the trick is, don’t buy three things in bulk, smack in the middle of your busiest week in a while. Maybe thats the bit of intelligence that was missing from my half-assed planning. So, I thought, what the hell! I’ll just get peaches. A hell of a lot of peaches. My friend who splits […]
