Gourmet Leftovers

Gourmet is a cultural ideal associated with the culinary arts of fine food and drink, or haute cuisine, which is characterized by refined, even elaborate preparations and presentations of aesthetically balanced meals of several contrasting, often quite rich courses. Okay, so MAYBE it isn’t gourmet… Hahaha. My MIL likes to make sure that we don’tContinue reading “Gourmet Leftovers”

Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom

I checked out a copy of this book. I always love taking at least one cookbook among my library conquests. This one will definitely be one of the books I need to hunt down from the local used book store. I think I recall McKay’s actually having one in stock, but we don’t have theContinue reading “Julia’s Kitchen Wisdom”

Happy Turkey Day~!!!

Gobble, gobble, gobble~! Today’s Thanksgiving in the United States of America. We aren’t having the meal until afternoon, so I’ll be sure to post more photographs of the meal tomorrow. For now, I’ll share with you some recipes! I’ve been trying to make a point to keep track of the recipes we use for traditionalContinue reading “Happy Turkey Day~!!!”

Thanksgiving Preparation

Thanksgiving this year has involved a ton of cleaning since we’re hosting people outside the family. We had changed the living around a ton too so there was a ton of clearing out and sending to Goodwill. Good bye, cheap plywood television stand. Hello, solid wood buffet. Holds a lot of our video game piecesContinue reading “Thanksgiving Preparation”

Avocado … Avocabracadabra?

Put the lime in the Avocado and you smash it all up… A magical spell for tasty yummy stuff. We had about six ripe avocados ready to use recently. Mother-in-Law really loves buying them and apparently Father-in-Law and Step Daughter love eating them. So I whipped up some Guacamole using ingredients we had around theContinue reading “Avocado … Avocabracadabra?”

Snacko Board Breakdown

I posted a few days ago about charcuterie boards. In French tradition, the charcuterie ( (pronounced “shahr-ku-tuh-ree” ) is the art of preparing and assembling cured meats and meat products. Essentially, this is meats’ response to a cheese board. And I’m not one to complain. Boards have become a huge trend. And I mean, whyContinue reading “Snacko Board Breakdown”

Elementary School Lunches

So having a buffer day might be helpful for blogging. We’ll see. One of the “perks” of working at the elementary school consisted of meals. As the afternoon/evening janitor, I wasn’t allowed to leave the campus. Someone was always supposed to be available. During the summer time, we’d take breaks at the same time whichContinue reading “Elementary School Lunches”

Self Image

Today’s opposite action was going to get my meds and then… not being able to get my meds. Well, I got my Diabetic Test Strips, but my Psych meds weren’t available. So I had to ask my Psychiatrist for samples. I’m not sure if it’s normal, but my Psychiatrist is a very strange guy. TheContinue reading “Self Image”

Quick Kimchi

Kimchi is something that my family loves to eat. I’m a huge fan of it myself, but I also have to moderate how much I consume due to the heat. (Acid reflux sucks, guys.) I can’t say that my version is a hundred percent “authentic” since I’m not Korean and the recipe I pulled fromContinue reading “Quick Kimchi”
