Updates, Broken limbs and Food Co-ops

How have you been? Things have been crazy here in my household. The weather has been crazy hot (over 100 degrees F many days). Hades called, they want their weather back. I’m inclined to give it back, I’m not a fan of melting. Since we have stolen Hades’ weather, my garden is mostly finished (Garden …

Garden Gab, Week 7

Is there anything better than watching things you planted blossom and grow? Well, okay watching my children grow tops watching my plants grow, but watching my plants grow is still pretty awesome. The warmth has taken hold here in Texas. The temps are holding steady in the mid to upper 80’s. I’d prefer the 70’s, …

Chicken Taco Salad

Taco Salad, remade.   When I was young,  my mother made taco salad all the time.    Ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, pinto beans, Catalina dressing and Doritos.   We had this version of taco salad almost weekly. When I married and became the “cook” I began making the salad too. It’s very kid friendly, it’s …

Chicken Migas

Generally I agree with The Pioneer Woman on most food related issues. To me though, Migas is not Migas without Chorizo. Chorizo is really greasy and fatty though. 😦 A local market, I adore Sprouts Farmer’s Market, sells ground chicken chorizo. I decided to give the chicken a try and boy, howdy I’m glad I …

Since we just planted the garden, this is a blessing and a curse.   Water …

Chili cheese pies

I got a new iPhone 4S on Friday. The camera is amazing, it even has a flash. Awesomesauce. Because my new phone rocks, and because I heart Liz of a Belle, a Bean and a Chicago dog I’m linking up for iPhone photo phun. I made chili on Tuesday. Yummy turkey chili. Now, I’m making …

My new favorite cooking show….

If you’re like me and you can’t sleep you either end up watching cooking shows or infomercials. Okay, maybe that’s just me. Of course, sometimes I watch crime TV, but I digress. One night last week, I stumbled upon Nadia G and Bitchin-Kitchen. Funny non? I made Nadia’s Bitchin’ Kitchen’s Crispy Medallione (fried ravioli) I …
