For the toppings: Roma tomatoes, sliced Red onions, sliced thin…really thin Basil, a chiffonade….JANE!!! Mushrooms, sliced Garlic, peeled and sliced Fresh […]

Spicy Chicken Noodle Soup

The Mister is still not up and about; without going into detail let me just say it’s a slow process. Since The Mister is a huge soup fan I made a spicy chicken noodle soup. It’s good for what ails you. 4 sprigs of rosemary, sage & thyme from a pack of poultry herb blend […]

Time to Re-Season My Cast Iron Skillet

I felt it was time to re-season my cast iron skillet because on this beautiful Saturday afternoon it just seemed the thing to do while dinner simmers (that will be a separate post later). I don’t have an interest in using the lye bath or electrolysis method — they seem extreme and I’m just spazz […]

Hiatus

This blog is on hiatus for now. We haven’t been out anywhere fun to eat and we haven’t been cooking anything noteworthy. The Mister has been unwell and in bed for just about a month now. It was a bit reminiscent of the start to a terrible incident a few years ago. Thankfully it didn’t […]

The Mister and I enjoyed at early dinner tonight at Carrabba’s in Colorado Springs (Springs has two Carrabba’s and we have none down here, an hour south! :) ). I am glad they are within a reasonable driving distance. Anyway, we have always dined at the one on Campus Drive and always have a good […]

Nirvana On A Plate

We went out to dinner at one of our favorite places, Tsunami Sushi Bar, Wok & Grill. We normally get sushi but this time we went for something different. I had the Mongolian Beef (Garlic, Onions, Mushrooms, Scallions in Dark Garlic Sauce). Very delicious! I shared with him. The Mister ordered the Crispy Sweet n’ […]

Christmas Dinner

Let me start by saying that Christmas dinner was DELICIOUS. I went to what used to be Brink’s Meat Market here in town but has become Pueblo Bounty and Yield, to pick up filet mignon for our special dinner. While I was in Wal-Mart the other day looking at their filet mignon I held a […]

Christmas Breakfast

On this fine Christmas morning, The Mister made his Everything Eggs. Two sunny-side up eggs on a bed of refried beans atop a corn tortilla. There are some chopped white onions hiding out under the eggs and it’s all smothered in green chile with a sprinkling of sharp cheddar cheese. Bacon? Check. Three slices of […]

Carrabba’s in Colorado Springs

The Mister and I had some errands to do up in Colorado Springs today and when we go there we like to plan on eating at one of our favorite restaurants up there. We tend to plan a lot of things centered around food — it keeps us fat and sassy. The pick today was […]
