Shopping Trip – Harmon’s, 7/19

Shopping Trip – Harmon’s, 7/19

Harmon’s is having a great little stock up sale on some fabulous pantry (and school lunch) items!  I apologize for the late notice – today was the first day I could get to the sale, and unfortunately it’s also the LAST day of the sale. […]

Freezer Salsa

Freezer Salsa

Tomato season is almost upon us, especially if you’ve planted Early Girls in your garden this year, and the inevitable question always comes up, “What do I do with all these tomatoes?” (Actually, I’ve never gotten to ask that question. My cherry tomatoes went gangbusters […]

Sesame Orange Chicken

Sesame Orange Chicken

Just a quick dish for you today.  This is my Sesame Orange Chicken, or as my 5-yr-old calls it, “Orange Says Me Chicken”! It’s a fast “dump-and-freeze” meal with very little prep.  And it cooks all day in the slow cooker, so it is basically […]

Easy Granola Parfaits

I love lazy weekends. Unfortunately, I don’t get very many of them around my house. But when I do, the last thing I want to be doing is spending time making breakfast. I want breakfast to come to me, on a tray, pre-made, and I […]

Pizza Puff Pockets

Pizza Puff Pockets

So, I may, or may not, be on a puff pastry kick here.  I know that admitting it is half the battle, but I’m not sure I’m ready to do that yet.  So until then, you may just have to read through a few posts […]

Ham & Swiss Puff Pockets

Ham & Swiss Puff Pockets

I’m afraid I can’t lay any claim to fame on this one… I’m not even sure I can say that I’ve ever eaten the “original” commercial item that these little hot pockets are based one, so I am entirely unable to tell you whether these […]

So long, and thanks for all the strawberries…

So long, and thanks for all the strawberries…

Sometimes I just can’t help it when a Douglas Adams reference slips into a post on strawberries…it has been that kind of day… Since strawberry season is now coming to a close, I was able to get a good deal on a flat of strawberries this […]
