Sloppy Joes! So I was invited to a house warming a few weeks ago. One of the items on the menu was this messy burger meat thing that you slopped onto a bun and go to town on it! Usually I am a very picky eater! I will not eat something that does not look appealing to my eyes. I try to eat the same things most of the time. Like I do not like anyone messing with my breakfast.... Read more »
Had to run a million stairs and a huge mountain! Well really it was only a few stairs at the Target Field and it was one small hill at Gold Medal Park…but my legs seriously felt like it was on fire! Never mind it burning and my heavy breathing on the day of, its the next day that my calves felt like it was being squeezed in a not so nice way. OYE the things I do just to fit... Read more »
I am not complaining, but it has been blistering hot and humid here in MN. The wind will not blow! And with my dark coloring, I end up just looking burnt and charred! For some reason the sun is attracted to my forehead. Not attractive at all. I sent the monster and her friend that was having a sleepover, outside to water the plants as they looked very thirsty, the plants, not the monster, I looked out the window, and... Read more »
Hi there! Welcome back, if this is your first time stopping by, then hold on to your seat cause you are in for a treat. I have been testing and tweaking this BBQ Chicken recipe for a while now. My goal was to make it as easy and simple as possible with ingredients that I had in my fridge. I did not want it to get too out of control. I also wanted to make it in my oven, since... Read more »
I hate waiting on people. I hate when I tell someone a time to be at a certain place, to when to meet me and they don’t leave their house until 5 minutes before the meeting time! Its rude to keep someone waiting, especially if you don’t have a good excuse. Like telling me that traffic was bad! That is not a good excuse, if you know that time of the day will have more traffic then leave a little... Read more »
Did you survive your Thanksgiving Holiday? Did you venture out into the Black Friday abyss of chaos? I managed to survive two Thanksgiving holidays this year. The first being mine and the second with the Kubes family. I am going to show you my two turkeys that I did this year. I am really hoping to actually share this recipe sometime in the future. But there is only so much turkey I can eat! Especially since I don’t even like... Read more »
While everyone is celebrating Valentines Day, I am over here missing Ash Wednesday in Trinidad. This is usually the day after Carnival Monday and Tuesday and everyone back home heads to the beach or to the river to make ‘a cook’. A ‘cook’ in Trini term means you are going to cook your meal, usually some kind of curry or broth (soup) at the beach. And its normally cooked over a thrown together fireside. With wood and bricks/huge rocks. Nothing... Read more »
So nothing new here other than we got another 8-14 inches of snow again today. I am so ready for winter to be gone. And no it is not beautiful, like a lot of people seem to think. It is chaos to drive in, back breaking trying to shovel yourself out before work, sand and salt everywhere that makes the snow look a dirty brown color. I just want some sunshine so I can complain about how hot it is,... Read more »
I can finally smell again! Just in time for March Madness. Thats all that is going to be on at the gym. As soon as you walk in the door the guys will start in on whose winning and whose bracket is being knocked out. And yes of course I am in on the betting. Though I do not watch the games, I love checking my bracket at night to see who is beating me. As you have read I... Read more »
Growing up I did not eat beef or pork, in fact I did not start eating beef or pork until I was well into my 20’s! It was against our religion, and it still is! My parents and my younger brother still do not eat either. What I ate back then I hated with a vengeance! My grandparents grew their own rice in a lagoon, and harvested it once a year. It was kept in the huge wooden box beneath... Read more »
I believe everyone but me has seen Black Panther and the new Avengers movie! I mean how many times do we have to avenge the world with new super heroes? I feel like a super hero every time I get home from work and is able to get the dishes and dinner done by 9pm! Other days I wish I had a private chef and full time maid service. Though I love to cook, I am hoping the private chef... Read more »
Anyone here watches Naked and Afraid? I have been watching this Discovery show since it first started. I mainly like to see what the naked people catch and cook to eat. A lot of times they just go hungry. What a fantastic way to lose weight right? While watching it I always think to myself, I am not sure I would make it past the first day! I mean in my normal day to day life, if I don’t get my breakfast... Read more »
I know you are wondering what the heck is an Asado? An Asado is one heck of a big BBQ! In Argentina and Paraguay and a few other South American countries, a big BBQ is called an Asado. In fact today is Paraguay’s Independence day and it is guaranteed that there will be an Asado or two. To these countries an Asado is considered an event. Its not just a BBQ to them. While the meats are not seasoned the... Read more »
Hi there! Its been about 2 weeks since I last posted anything. I was away for Memorial weekend and I just felt too lazy to cook and video and blog. I usually go away to a lake house every Memorial weekend, this year in 14 years we actually had 90 degree weather. I am not complaining, but there was two houses next to us on either side and we were the only house hold that would be inside all day... Read more »
The first thing I do each morning when I wake up is turn on the news, while I convince myself that working is important and that the only way I can live the life of luxury (not really) is if I drag myself out of bed every day and put on my big girl clothes and speed to work. Last Friday, flashing across my TV screen I distinctly saw breaking news. I can’t see worth a darn without my glasses,... Read more »
