Made some enchiladas the other night that had great flavor but could use an extra tweak. Sometimes I do get tired of sauce and this was the night I was refusing it.
Another way to make some shrimp and grits different from the other one I did. Don’t remember how I did them but they were awesome. Well, these may be awesomer. They are awesomer in prep work that’s for sure.
Anyways, I went to visit him in Austin and he made a pico I thought was way too Cali. “Mango’s in pico, get the hell outa here”. One taste shut me up.. This is a recipe rob of what I remember from that life changing day.
Not going to call the rest of this recipe Chicken Tetrazzini because I already know I’ll be spell check’n tetrazzini throughout… This is a fantastic twist on Yard Bird Sketti I knew would be a IMO 4 but when tasted it
A little mix n match taco feast that’s quick when ya need it. These were made with high dollar all natural drug free hallelujah chicken breast. I don’t usually buy this type of bird but this time I caught it on sale.
Maybe I could have started before starving, who knows. It’s been in 2 more feedings since then and all I can say is Yaaas!!! More on the dadgum noodles down the line.
Smoking meat for Memorial Day I couldn’t help knocking out a couple 5 ribs. The fried oysters took more prep time but well worth the effort.
A couple three things to get right with gumbo is your roux, okra prep (if using), and my Aunt says you can never have too many onions. I agree and will jabber down the page.
These sammies are really good but I swung and missed a couple times making them. Confessions… If using fajita meat it is important to fillet all the membrane off the meat. A lot of cuts of beef will work with this but
Sort of a kitchen sink dinner it turned out better than expected. It’s a cross of Alfredo sauce and regular ole garlic butter sauce, but you won’t have much sauce at all when done. Small pot, large pan, and a plate yer good to go.
These jumbo grill Gulf Coast shrimp turned out mighty fine and very simple to cook. If you can’t find head on shrimp or gulf shrimp it’s fine to use what’s available. Honestly it’s a cleaner eating experience removing heads and tails when shelling.
Mango’s are already tasty around here and pretty easy to pick out the goods ones. Not much frying around here because of cleanup but when it happens it’s usually done with a tempura style batter tweaked with our typical twist.
Had never heard of but going to name my 1st born after because in my mind it tasted like a swimming crab. I posted an image of the dinner on a social and someone chimed in about the shady-ness of the Swai.
You could totally skip the shrimp part on this one if you were going to an office “bring a dish” party and you don’t like your boss. If you’re looking for a promotion add the shrimp… Better yet
In fact this was my 1st. They are pretty quick, easy, and cheap to build. Not sure what’s in true southern shrimp n grits but this one has cheddar, shrimp, garlic, green onion, and bacon. Wish I had made more.
Nice white sauce a little different from parmigiano typically used in Alfredo sauces. Used Oaxaca cheese, browned garlic, and shrimp pieces as a part of it. I usually never veer from parm but did this time and it worked out great.
Whatever reason my crab dealer doesn’t have pealed crab in stock. Suspect it’s a seasonal thing but looking around their stash I noticed “lobster head” meat. It was pretty cheap at about 6 bucks + for approximately 2 cups.
You can put all kinds of ingredients on a stick! Shrimp, chicken, and my favorite flat iron steak. The rice idea came from a friend’s pork chop slow cooker recipe that looks ugly as hell but taste fantastic.
Since Biddy was born I haven’t seen fried berd for a while. Very easy cheap dinner with a little planning so time isn’t the issue. All this was baked together except for the pineapple.
Losing time, short on supplies, and not interested in going to the grocery was the inspiration for this simple taco dinner. Just grilled fajitas, homemade tortillas, cheese and a shot of Irish Salsa. Irish Salsa is our problem child
Rich steak, crab cake, and shrimp dinner made for special days or crappy ones if it works. Sometimes I do recipes a little more complex because I have the time. This rich surf n turf is one of my favorites.
Pretty simple, quick, cheap and delicious fajita twist. When you find out you are out of tortillas beautiful things can happen. This fajita sub was the result of that night. I grilled the fajitas on a hibachi which is a little more difficult when the wind is blowing. Any grilling method you dig by all means, do that. The guac is a simple one that keeps the pallet focused on the avocado’s flavor.
