I originally posted a version of this recipe a few years ago and received rave reviews about it, so I wanted to post it again.
I was not the perfectionist with the pictures and stories as I am now, but the recipe is really worth sharing.
I hope you enjoy.
Did someone say Football?
That’s right kid’s. The Super Bowl is right around the corner and to me that means food.
“Don’t you mean football?”….
Nope…I’m not a huge football fan ..but I do love food….so on with the show.
Oh, to be asparagus: One of the most vilified vegetables of the bunch. Next to broccoli and Brussel sprouts, asparagus continues to be one of the most misunderstood and underutilized greens in the garden……but not for long.
We’re taking it back to the top, gang.
Last week my wife tells me that her friend is out of town on vacation and she needs a big favor?
She has a large garden that needs to be watered and as a “Thank You”, we would be able to take as many cukes as we wanted.
So, I grabbed a basket, a colander and my favorite helper. My little guy.
Penne ala Vodka.
Delicious. How can you go wrong?
Come on people…this is comfort food calling you.
Oh yeah, St. Patrick’s Day is March 17th, and that can only mean one thing.
Getting drunk at 9 am?? No…….well, maybe..but it’s a “day for wearing of the green” and other kick-ass Irish traditions, like making Irish soda bread, watching the parade on tv, listening to Irish music and ..ok, perhaps getting drunk early in the morning.
Many of you don’t know that St. Patrick was not even born in Ireland, in fact..it is said that he may have been,,,ugh..don’t shoot the messenger, Italian. Yup.
Waiter…extra whiskey in my coffee please.
So before you start drinking green beer and dancing with strangers make sure that you gather up all of your ingredients and ready to have the most delicious corned beef and cabbage that you have ever had.
Welcome to your latest addiction.
Onion rings for dinner?
Sometimes you just want to eat what you want to eat and if that means breaking the rules of what we are told is right and wrong..then arrest me Officer Foodie.
( but let me bring my onion rings with me)
Memorial Day is a very important day. If it’s not a very important day to you…it should be.
A day to remember, a day to continue living and a day to give thanks to those that have given the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms. Their lives.
I like to honor those that gave so much in my prayers and honor my family and friends my grillin’ like a villain.
In particular, my grilling.
It’s time to rock out with my charcoal out, so grab a napkin and get ready to drool baby…
