image_pdfimage_print

I was craving tacos the other night, but we didn’t have tortillas and I was too tired to go out again. So I went scavenging in the refrigerator and pantry. Hmmm….mac and cheese…taco… how about some fusion!

Enter Taco Pasta!

Everything you want in a taco baked into a casserole that is oh so comforting and delicious! This one is easy and can be made with whatever you have in the house, as long as you have those Mexican spices (we keep them on hand at all times).

What’s for Dinner? Sunday Link up #126

Can you believe 2019 is almost over? Where did it go? Crazy how fast time flies. It’s up to us to treasure each moment and make memories. This is the time of year that everyone gets so busy they forget to ponder the memories they have already made. I love looking back on the Thanksgivings past, when my dad decided we would start our meal going around the table and share one thing we were thankful for, and it couldn’t be the obvious. We had to think about it. It seemed a little silly at the time, but I think he knew we were making memories to be thankful for. What are your favorite Thanksgiving memories? And by the way…

Idaho Finger Steaks

image_pdfimage_print

Idaho’s state fruit is the huckleberry – a small berry similar to the blueberry. They have a state fish. The cutthroat trout – one of the tastiest fresh water fish. But Idaho is the potato state. They grow more than 13 Billion pounds a year. They have been the leader in potato production in the U.S. two years in a row! So it’s only fitting that we do french fries in this post.

But it’s what goes with them that’s true Idahoan. Finger steaks! Finger steaks are strips that are breaded and deep fried. They have been referred to as the Southern Idaho gems! The batter ranges from tempura like to lightly floured and there is some version of these “gems” served in about every pub in the state! Continue reading

I love using my slow cooker, especially this time of year. This dish is full of flavor and so easy to make. Just whip up a salad on the side and it’s dinner!

This recipe is simply 9 ingredients totally. Just pile them in and turn it on – That’s it! It all simmers together while your at work. Come home, thicken the gravy, make a salad – and you’re done! It’s dinner.

Halloween is over and a lot of people are already in Christmas mode. It seems me some folks go from gimme gimme Halloween to gimme gimme Christmas. Please don’t get me wrong – I love both of the holidays. But I also treasure the time in between where I can reflect on all the beauty in my life – all the wonderful things I have to be thankful for, like my amazing family – the joy I get from my day job – the beauty of watching the wind blow the leaves or the snow fall. Just the mere fact that I can see it is cause for thanksgiving. So what are you thankful for this month? Oh, and …
