A couple of months ago, after what felt like two years of eating sandwiches for lunch, we got frickin’ sick of meat on bread.
Now we plan ahead and make something on Sunday to pack for lunch all week long. It’s waaaay better than the same-old, same-old sandwich.
Our latest creation is a soup that had some interesting ingredients. You will probably call it Hot Dog Soup. We’re okay with that.
Not something you are going to find in a Campbell's can.
Why Jewish? The world may never know. That’s just what my mother calls it, and what her family calls it, and heck, that’s what a bunch of people on the Internet call it, so there you have it. Jewish Apple Cake.
It got even more moist as it sat on the table.
After writing this blog for almost a year, new recipes that I might actually want to eat are getting less obvious from week to week.
It’s not like we struggle to come up with meals (although, sometimes we do), but I have run through all of my standby dishes and personal secret recipes.
So I decided to see what sorts of recipes were in Fannie Farmer’s cookbook. I found one that sounded alright: Shepherd’s Pie.
The idea pretty much came right out of nowhere.
From time to time we end up with, like, a dozen pork chops in our freezer. Why so many? Because you can get that many for $8.
They are cheap and we like them, but sometimes we’re all, “What the hell do you do with these pork chops?” You know, besides just eat pork chops.
So I had a brain hurricane one day and this is what came out:
Breaded, fried pork chops with the popular green bean and stewed tomatoes recipe.
It’s been a minute since Feaston has screwed something up really bad. I was on the fence about whether we should classify this as a disaster at first, but looking back, I now think it falls squarely into the SUCK category.
I mean, this seemed like a GREAT idea at the time. Stuffed chicken breasts. They have them in the case at Wegmans. If they sell them to the general public, how hard could they be to make?
Find out how hard after the jump.
But look how pretty.
