What's For Dinner

Here's what I've been creating in the kitchen lately....







  1. Saute Kielbasa, onions, and bell peppers, then add garlic and Half-and-Half and Parmesan to make a little sauce.  Toss in al dente pasta and spinach.  Taste and season.
  2. Rotisserie chicken, baked beans and green salad.
  3. Scrambled eggs, bacon, broiled tomatoes and a danish.
  4. Grilled Ahi tuna steaks, spinach salad.
  5. Quesadilla soup.  Make broth from a jar of salsa, chicken stock, Velveeta, chili powder and cumin.  Add cans of corn, carrots and black beans.  After spooning into bowls, top with sour cream, shredded cheese, avocado, tortilla chips. cilantro and Sriracha. 
  6. Homemade buttermilk pancakes and syrup.

    1. I always dust the chairs for the dinner guests.
      Considering the cat hair, I think it's best.

    2. But if you let them sit
      They'll have a butt full of hair for a bit
      They'll take it home with them too
      Then no cleaning for you

      and curse me to hell

  5. What have you done to your tomatoes? Is that grated cheese? Looks good. Why have we never thought of that.

    1. Those are Roma tomatoes. I cut them in half, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with salt, garlic powder, Italian seasoning and grated Parmesan. Stick under the broiler until warm and bubbling. Yum.

      Delete
    2. I would normally sprinkle them with salt & pepper and a little Italian seasoning and olive oil and leave them for at least half an hour and then fry in a little butter. Also yum. But the grated cheese does look tasty. BTW we have just tried M&S Winter Berry & Prosecco crisps (new for Christmas!) and I'll be posting my review in the next day or so. Seriously weird.

    3. That would work....and then after frying, sprinkle on the cheese and it would melt before serving. Yum.

      Now...those crisps....VERY interesting. haha...
