Tonight I am finally getting around to sharing what I made my husband for Valentine’s Day. Better late than never right! These remodeling projects have definitely turned my life upside down.
Pasta is definitely my husbands fave but Chinese is a close second! When I surprised him with this Thai Chicken Stir Fry, he was more than pleased. It’s probably not like anything we had in China, or as good as what my friend Tina makes, but authentic or not, it’s a dynamite stir-fry dish that is perfect for any weeknight dinner!
Both my husband and I love Thai food and I happen to really love experimenting with my New Instant Pot. Yep still in the “honeymoon phase”! The good news is, this can be made with all those staples you probably have in your pantry.
Do you enjoy a good casserole? If you’re from Minnesota, we refer to them as hot dishes. Well known fact, when my mom suggested making her delicious chicken noodle hot dish for family out East, they replied, “hot dish? What’s a hot dish?” I think they thought us Minnesotan’s were a bit odd? Turns out, her hot dish was a big hit! It was so good, it’s still requested and served with much love by my mom when they visit us here in Minnesota!
Thankfully I enjoy my smoothies. They’ve been my standard breakfast every morning for the past 25 years, but this past week, I have also made them for lunch. And today, it made a fabulous Tuesday afternoon snack. I just used one scoop of shake mix verses two.
Securian Winter Run Finishers Mug
Here I am at my desk, sipping on my morning Bullet Proof Coffee from my new mug that I earned after the Securian Winter Run. As I look at this new favorite mug, I realize I have not blogged about a race recently. Heck, I have been a bit more quiet than usual lately, but my house is upside-down in the middle of a re-model, my mom has been under the weather for a couple weeks, and I am super busy with my work.
Do you remember those crab cakes I made for my friends a couple weeks ago? Those were just our first course. Um…maybe second since there was my famous guacamole and squeaky cheese to munch on as we all got to know each other.
You may have read in a recent post or else-where about the Instant Pot craze? This nifty appliance is definitley making quite an appearance on various blogs, including mine. I am one of those who took advantage of Amazon’s amazing Black Friday Deal of the Day.
This is one of the most versatile and tastiest sauces I have ever made! The added bonus is, it’s easy to prepare if you use roasted peppers in a jar.
Time for a coffee break everyone! Coffee Coffee and more Coffee right! At least according to my hubby. Now all I need to do is convince my husband to try my new favorite bullet proof coffee.
Hey everyone. As promised, here is the recipe for my new favorite way to make crab cakes….I cook them using high heat in my oven for just eight minutes.. Don’t ever be afraid to make homemade crab cakes again. I love these!
