lots and lots of things to be thankful for this year. it has been one of the best and most exciting years of my life. i became an aunt, got a kitten, got a new job, what else, what else…oh yeah, got ENGAGED…so many good things. i’m so thankful for friends and family, our health, scouts shenanigans, and everything in between. i’m also thankful that i’m finally learning to cook! this was the first year i actually contributed to a holiday potluck. in the past i would have just bought something…or been ‘that girl’ and not brought anything at all. this year i brought TWO casseroles AND a dessert!! (recipes on the way, don’t worry)
i have a couple recipes to post over the weekend but i wanted to get this one up now, just in case you don’t know what to do with all those delicious leftovers!!! this was a shot in the dark…but its GOOD. really good. i’m too full to finish it, but i wish i could.
its very simple. put all of your leftovers onto a sandwich. then grill it. yep. somehow it all tastes good together.
this is my all-time favorite chicken. hands down. i would always request this chicken and my brother would always request hawaiian chicken (which i’ll make soon, don’t worry). i was scared to make it, because i was worried i would mess it up. NO MESSING THIS ONE UP. it is SO easy, and SO delicious. i’ve literally eaten the leftovers at work for 2 days now. i’m sad its about to be gone. but since its so easy to make i’ll just have to try it again :). Pat was skeptical, as always, but he loved it as well. he even ate it twice in one night as a late night snack.
well goodness. all this election coverage is stressing me out. so i need something cheesy and fried and delicious. GRILLED CHEESE!! believe it or not i’ve never made a grilled cheese. i’m the cooking virgin, remember? so yeah…literally never made a grilled cheese. i brainstormed with my mom on the phone for some good add-ons to the normal grilled cheese. i decided to make Hawaiian grilled cheese, and caprese grilled cheese.
Stove-top crumbled bacon is one of the greatest things I have learned within the past two years. This is genius and I’m disappointed in myself for not figuring it out sooner in life. For all the times a recipe calls for crumbled, crispy bacon, this is the go-to thing to do. This is one of those great little nuggets of info that saves a ton of time and the results are great…so…here goes.
