New Year’s Eve Appetizer & Cocktail Ideas

New Year’s Eve is just around the corner. I’m ready for 2020 to make its exit. Are you with me? I saw this meme recently and it made me laugh. Kind of. But at the same time, it does sort of sum up how I’m feeling…. Let’s just ease on into ’21 and see how it goes… Easy does it…. This heinous year making its exit is something worth celebrating, though. Our plan is to stay home and have a […]

Leftover Turkey Creamy Cheese Soup

Like many families this year, our Thanksgiving dinner was smaller than normal. Small turkeys, however, were hard to come by, so we still ended up with a 22-pounder for only a few people. Which means we ended up with a lot of leftover turkey! 😂 🍗 🍗 🍗 That’s not a bad thing though. We placed all the meat into freezer bags right after dinner, and tucked it away for future use. One night last weekend, we made my favorite […]

Sundays on Silverado #15

Life Lately Coffee & Swearing This meme pretty much sums it up. There has been a lot of coffee, and a fair amount of swearing this week. The school where I work reverted to 100% online learning this week. The positivity rate in our county is rising at an alarming rate, and student and teacher absences at my school spiked over the course of just a few days. We got a message on Sunday evening stating that kids should not […]

Slow Cooker Creamy Tortellini & Sausage Soup

Well, it’s definitely soup weather. In my last post, I joked about not being surprised if we had a blizzard next, after waking up to a dusting of snow in mid October yesterday. Because, 2020. Well, guess what? 😫 While I was at work the next day, I got this alert on phone: I mean, really. 🤨 We ended up with between 3 and 9.5 inches of snow in areas all around here. I hadn’t even pulled my winter coat […]

Balsamic Chicken with Fresh Tomatoes

It’s that time of year around here where the garden tomatoes are juuuuusssst starting to ripen. It’s so exciting to pick that first one or two that turn red, “Look, my first tomatoes!” But before too long, you’ve got so many tomatoes you can’t carry them to the house in one load. Your entire kitchen counter is covered in tomatoes. You start pawning off tomatoes on everyone you possibly can. “YOU get a tomato, and YOU get a tomato!” 🍅 […]

It’s Rhubarb Season!

For 14 years at my former house, I grew rhubarb in the back yard that was transplanted from my mom’s garden. Every spring and early summer, I’d joyfully harvest it to make some of the family recipes handed down to me. If it had not been the middle of a frozen January when we sold that house and moved, I’d have gone out back and dug up my mom’s rhubarb to bring with me. When spring rolled around and we […]

Cooking at Home during Quarantine–Week #3

This is my 3rd edition of “Cooking at Home”, but definitely not “week 3”. Time is starting to become irrelevant to me, and apparently one week equals 7.26 million years now. Don’t you agree? But, I am back today to give you another run down of what we’ve been preparing for meals around here. Since we’ve been cooking at home 95% of the time, that requires a lot of planning, and frankly, I’m starting to run out of ideas. I’ve […]

BBQ Chicken Burgers & Homemade Hamburger Buns

On The Today Show one morning last week, they shared a previously recorded cooking segment where they made Barbecue Chicken Burgers. They looked so good, and perfect for putting on the grill. The weather is just starting to warm up a bit, and with all this home confinement, I’m craving any reason to go outside. Grilling burgers sounded like the perfect plan. But, problem #1 was that I didn’t have any ground chicken or turkey, and problem #2, no hamburger buns either. […]
