What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

Super quick post here now, followed by a possible longer one later.

HI! Have you ever gotten to a point where you take on a project and you’re like “Sure, I can do it!” Then about a month in you’re wondering “What the heck was I thinking??” I’m there!

What’s for dinner?

I’m literally flying through this. I went to class earlier, got home, made dinner, took pics of it and a few other goodies I baked today, took my son to his band concert, and took my daughter with me to a Homeowners Association meeting.

all within an hour.

 I was writing this earlier at the HOA meeting, but my battery died…and it killed my post. Grrr

Anyway, dinner was quick and simple for me. I made leftover homemade chicken and dumplings with a salad for dinner. Of course modified a bit differently than the link above, but it’s a good quick fix for those moods for quick, simple and comforting.


Cameron (husband) made this amazing vinaigrette that even my daughter loves, and she’s been a little under the weather, so I made her her favorite ‘chicken and ducklings’. It’s easy and to the point…plus if it has her put something in her tummy while she doesn’t feel good, it works for me.

February 22

For dessert, I made pumpkin butterscotch blondies for the HOA. Cameron kinda forgot to take them, so I have both the blondies as well as pumpkin zucchini bread here waiting to be eaten (That’s another post though, coming soon…)

Pumpkin butterscotch blondies.

So…what’s on your plate tonight?



I mentioned yesterday that summer is almost over. My daughter has been asking for s’mores lately, so Cameron got the fixins to make them, modifying them a bit for me.

Different how?

Serving one...what you need.... 

I got dark chocolate and cinnamon graham crackers. :)

Usually I like burnt or almost black marshmallows, but for photography’s sake, I toasted them perfectly. 


Yeah, I gots mad marshmallow toasting skills. Nice and toasty.

Then the hardest part? Letting it sit for a few minutes to melt. But oh, is it worth it! Just a big square of ooey gooey goodness!


How do you like your s’mores?


What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

Evening everyone. It’s coming. Can you smell it? Can you FEEL it? It’s in the air. Fall. My favorite time of year!

What’s for dinner?

Trying to enjoy the last few weeks of warmer weather, Cam fired up the grill and we made chicken salads for dinner. I know. Boring. Eh…I’m a simple girl, what can i say?

Jan 3 

Grilled chicken cut up, tossed with salad greens, red onion, carrots, dried cranberries, mandarin orange slices, (or we use fresh pear sometimes too) and balsamic vinaigrette dressing.

A few days ago, I had commented that I was wanting a banana bomb pop from the ice cream man, but I never see them around here. I decided to make my own, in the form of banana bomb pudding pops.

Yes, I’m a child from when there were pudding pops out….Bill Cosby commercials and everything. Yes, I’m old, shut it. ;)

Banana bomb pudding pop

I used sugar free chocolate and banana pudding mix…and this is a giant one. I used a regular glass for it too. I found the easiest way to fill these is to make the mix, and pour them in bags before they start firming up. Then squeeze into pop molds, glasses, whatever you want to use. (that’s also a craft stick….it’s about 1” wide . I had extra from the regular popsicle molds that I had. :)

So, what’s on your plate, bowl, or stick tonight?

What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

Evening all, or afternoon depending on where you are in the world today reading this. I’m a bit off my game today, so forgive me, but this is gonna be a little different today.

What’s for dinner?

Have you ever been in the mood for the same types of food for a few days in a row? I’m kinda there right now. What’s the mood you ask? Asian cuisine. Meat and rice. Yep. I’m there. I’m asian too, so it kinda works for me. ;)

May 7

Dinner tonight is Yum Nuea. This is a thai dish - grilled beef sliced and mixed with lime juice, fish sauce, thai peppers, rice powder, and a bit of salt and pepper. I don’t really measure anything, so it’s hard to give you a recipe. I do use a whole lime though, and after mixing everything together, I add some red onion, seedless cucumber, and top it on a bed of romaine lettuce. (this isn’t the norm…at least it’s not how my thai mother serves it anyway.)

yum nuea 

Sorry, I mean, it’s not the prettiest of things to shoot, but it’s probably the most ordered thing that my husband orders if we ever go to a thai restuarant, or would ask my mother to make when I go to her house. :) Here…I’ll post a couple more pics of food to make up for it.

Lunch? I made this

Pad Prik Khing

This is Pad Prik Khing. Spicy Beef in a red curry paste with green beans. Just showing you a couple of options other than the regular pad thai I hear a lot of you people order from Thai restaurants.

BTW, if you ever go to my house…this is the kind of Thai cooking I look forward to. ;)

Chicken and Scallop Lad Na

Just don’t let my mom add a bunch of seasonings to it (like above) or you will REALLY get your sinuses cleared out. ;) Chicken and scallop lad na mixed with cauliflower and served on fried noodles.

Sorry, that was random! HA! Back to it.

Now for the continuation of asian cooking…this is what I meant. Last night? I made a spicy chicken stir fry for dinner.

Chicken stir fry

I guess the best part of this is that if you know you’re in this kind of mood, you can make a lot of rice and have several meals prepared for your lunch and dinner. The only downfall is that the kids probably won’t tolerate it, (at least mine don’t) and you’ll be cooking for them anyway.

So, what’s on your plate tonight?


What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

Happy July everyone! Can you believe it? The year is already halfway over. There’s only 170 more shopping days until Christmas. What, you weren’t counting? Ok, that could just be me. Hey, don’t say I didn’t warn you. ;) Back to the present though….

What’s for dinner?

In my genius state, I left my camera in the car, so I get to recycle pics of what I’m making. Don’t hate…this is gonna be good anyway. YES IT IS!

We had gotten a steak to cook for the holiday, but then with the chicken and brats we were already cooking. I figured we should save it until later this week. Soooo

Pregrilled state.

I marinated the london broil in a Caribbean jerk marinade overnight. I bring it up to room temperature a bit before grilling. (as in, like two hours…) Cut a whole pineapple into spears, and a red onion with some red and green bell pepper gets sliced and coated with olive oil, and salt and pepper.


toss em all on the grill together. (I absolutely love that grill basket.) I love the core on a pineapple too. Ok, yes, I’m weird. That’s ok though, right? Anyway..

Post Grilled State. 

Let the steak rest for a few minutes…cut and serve

Don't rush me!

Caribbean jerk marinated london broil with grilled veggies, grilled pineapple and rice pilaf.

What’s for Dinner? (The Weekend Edition)

Ok, a thousand apologies to anyone who reads these. I was unable to post this past Wednesday. I figured instead I’d post a weekend edition instead since more people are home and actually cook on the weekend. Maybe….or not. Either way,

What’s for dinner?

A poster last week suggested that I do something with shrimp. Normally I don’t buy shrimp for the house because, well, nobody likes shrimp except me unless it’s battered and fried. Anyway, the family is gone tonight, so I figured it’s a perfect time to make some shrimp.

I tossed this together and I liked it a lot! Figured hell, if I’m gonna make an entire meal for me, I might well get all the bases covered with good stuff, right? Right.


one seven three.

I made Lime and garlic grilled shrimp skewers with cilantro lime brown rice medley, topped with homemade avocado and mango salsa. I made literally EVERYTHING nobody else in my house would eat. HA! So good too. I need to do this more often.

Recipe? Hmmm…threw shrimp in a bowl, added garlic and herb seasonings in the bowl, and squeezed half to a full lime in (depending on the amount of shrimp you have) and toss. Try to not let them sit too long so the juice doesn’t start ‘cooking’ the shrimp before you’re ready. Skewer and toss on a grill about 2-3 minutes per side.

I had also tweeted a few days ago that as soon as I got home I wanted a cookie; possibly two cookies with some ice cream sandwiched between them. Soooo, I baked two big ol cookies, then grabbed the neopolitan ice cream, and, well…

I don’t know. Are 6” cookies what you’d consider big?

M&M Neopolitan Ice Cream Sandwich

I do, and unfortunately too much ice cream makes me ill, so I cut it into fours.

one seven four.

So….you’ve seen mine, now show me yours!

What’s on your plate this weekend?


What’s for Dinner Wednesday?

Good evening! I had this post all set and ready to go, and forgot to hit send before I left the house. I’m so sorry!

What’s for dinner?

Well, what was for dinner anyway.

This has been a little bit hectic for me today. I had everything set and ready to go. Went to work, then to see the sneak preview for Friends with Benefits (it’s a good movie if you’re into romantic comedies.)

Oh yeah…the food.

Tonight it was simple and basic food.


Pan seared oven baked chicken cooked with red onion and garlic with garlic mashed potatoes and broccoli.

See? Simple, basic and mostly healthy. (don’t look at all the butter in those potatoes!)

So, what was on your plate tonight?

by the way….Any ideas on what you’d like to see me make? Send your ideas on over. I usually stand by the grill a lot over the summer months, and I’d hate to bore you all! Send me down some recipes!
