I’m not much of a kneader. Yeast and kneading terrifies me. I know it sounds silly but I haven’t had the best of luck with them. I will eventually get to them again but in the meantime, I like to take shortcuts. Pizza is always a good meal for when I’m lazy and don’t feel much like cooking. Yes, I can be a moody cook at times. But aren’t we all sometimes?
Remember my pumpkin chili? Well I took the leftovers and made it into a baked pasta dish. I love chili and all but having the same thing meal after meal can get boring and monotonous. This is before I learned about freezing chili. I’ll have to try that the next time I make a big pot. You can make this with any chili recipe, even canned ones.
For a really long time, I always thought salads consisted of some sort of leafy vegetables. I recently discovered that it can be whatever vegetable your heart desires. This is why I’m posting more salad recipes than before. I love tomatoes. I can eat them in just about anything. I came across this recipe and thought tomatoes and avocados sound like a really tasty combination for a salad.
It has been extremely hot in my house lately so I’ve been reluctant to turn anything on in the kitchen. I generally don’t care for salads because it leaves me hungry most of the time. But because of the weather, I made an exception. I paired this salad with a slice of Savory Ham Cheese and Olive Cake (recipe to come soon) and it was the perfect light meal for us. The cucumber and tomatoes combined tasted so refreshing that I’m beginning to have second thoughts about salads. Have stellar Tuesday!
I came across this recipe on the back of my chili bottle. It was a fairly easy recipe to make and with so little ingredients so I made it over the weekend. Although I’m not a fan of processed cheese, this was quite tasty. My family came by and we all snacked on this dip. My nephew LOVED it! He’s a cheese lover so what’s not to like? This dip is perfect for those casual impromptu entertaining and great for when you’re watching a game. Bust open a bottle of beer and it’s all good!
