The days after Thanksgiving…what do you run out of first? We always are left with lots of starches and run out of turkey first. Part of the “problem” is that we make lots of starches and only the one turkey breast. So, what to do? Well, rolls are great for a lunch sandwich to switch things up a bit. Mashed potatoes can go with lots of proteins. But what about stuffing? It is generally best with poultry, but this year I decided to casserole-it. It already had sausage in it, so I figured I would turn it into a breakfast casserole.
This is a work in progress. I have been trying different kebab recipes and not had much luck. I did meatballs (wouldn’t stay on the skewers), chicken thighs that I tried not cutting into pieces, shrimp, and then chicken breasts.
I’ve talked before about flying with the Fudgelet. It’s never easy. It’s never fun. Do you ever enjoy flying? I didn’t even when I was single. There is always something to worry about, I feel gross before/during/after, there are so many lines and so much waiting around, and it takes so long (mostly because our trips tend to be cross-country). But, as the Fudgelet has gotten older, some of it has gotten easier. Thankfully, he is able to entertain himself a little and I imagine this will only continue. So, I can give him a toy, maybe provide a little demonstration/instruction, and then let him play.
Whenever I mention making some Indian food, K almost always wants chicken with some sort of sauce. And up to now, it was always roasting it in the oven and then either marinating the chicken with a yogurt sauce (and serving extra sauce on the side) or making a tomato/cream sauce. Now, I have a new method I can use when the weather is cooperating: the grill!
That’s right. It is early November and I am finally sharing what I learned from grilling this summer (for the first time). Haha. Well. Maybe you are still grilling it up, so here you go…if not, here are some thoughts for when spring comes.
I read lots of tips and suggestions, but not all of them pan out. That’s why I wanted to share this one with you all. Basically, I read in a recipe from The Food Lab that you should do the opposite of what many recipes say to do with beef…and after trying it multiple times in different recipes, it has worked amazingly well each time!
I wanted to share some more popsicles I’ve made since we are quickly approaching the end of summer. Make these now, or save them for next year…or even make them with some frozen fruit maybe?
