What`s Cookin in YOUR Casa? FOOD! Glorious food! I swear food makes me wanna sing! And damn it, sometimes I do! I am definitely a “foodie”. I love all kinds of food and I love that food is one of the things that brings people together. The kitchen is the Heart of the Home, right? I`m loving pizza, cheeseburgers and fries (this would be my last meal, if I was ever asked that question but don’t worry, I`m planning on staying out of death row)) Sorry. My sense of humor can be a bit morbid but I digress!! WHAT DO YOU LOVE? I have a “sweet tooth”, a “salty tooth” and a “sour tooth”. The only tooth I`m missing (see, there I go again) is the “bitter tooth”. I cannot eat or drink bitter things! I didn’t even start drinking coffee until I was in my 30`s and even now, if you knew how I take it, some of you might start gagging, so get a bucket! I put cinnamon and cloves in my grinds BEFORE brewing (my sis taught me the cinnamon part, I added the cloves) then… sweet cream creamer and THEN stevia (a natural sweetener). My mom thinks it`s the most disgusting concoction in the world. (But she used to eat peanut butter, cheese and mayonnaise sandwiches, SO…I`m just saying`). But see? Food is so personal!
What do you cook regularly? As a single mom, I have a few “go to`s” that on a work/school night, are fast and easy. I love my mini George Foreman grill to do chicken! It comes out so juicy!! I love to do turkey meatballs and pasta. If I have time? (And the burning desire to make something…not as often as I’d like) I love to make a great lasagna with a homemade sauce! Garlic bread, salad. YUM. What do you indulge in making when the fancy strikes you?
DESSERT anyone? Y `all have heard the old saying “What is STRESSED spelled backward? DESSERT!” That`s soo good! I LOVE CAKE!!!!!!!!!! Lemon cake with lemon frosting! Omg! I remember my Granny used to buy those Stir n` Frost cakes and they used to have a lemon one. THAT WAS AMAZING! Do you remember those? Anyone? Am I hearing crickets now? Well, what’s your favorite dessert to make? Please share!! Dang, it! Now I`m hungry.
