Leftover chicken. I bought a cooked chicken from Costco the other day because, well, quite frankly, I didn’t want to cook. There were sandwiches made with chicken on croissants (Costco croissants are the bomb). There was also potato salad. That was all I could, or was willing to, come up with. Some days are like

I gave away the leftovers in my freezer a couple of weeks ago. I went grocery shopping, came home with the loot and realized I had no room to put anything in the freezer – not the chest freezer, not the freezer over the fridge. So I made an emergency call to a friend and

It’s hot. Right next to the sun hot. We normally only get up to 30 Celsius occasionally, and usually only for a few days at a time. Right now, it is 32 C, heading for 34 C. Yesterday, we hit 35 C (about 100 F). A town in British Columbia yesterday broke an all time

I am pretty sure my daughter introduced me to fried dill pickles – it definitely was not my son. He doesn’t particularly like them. He doesn’t particularly like dill pickles to begin with – he likes homemade ones but not bought ones – they’re too pickle-y. I think the vinegar is too sharp and prominent

Yesterday, somehow, I ended up having a Big Mac & fries, with a Fruitopia, for brunch. Holy wow, that is a whackload of calories!!! Worth it, but wowzers! Given my calorie consumption for the day was pretty much kaput by noon, I figured we’d all better have something a little lighter for supper, as well

Once again, I am attempting to use up some of the bananas hiding in my freezer. I moved the ones I had in the fridge freezer to the chest freezer the other day and realized there were a wackload already in the chest freezer. It’s shameful….how those bananas are good one minute and black the

I have a recipe for enchilada sauce up already, but it’s a quick recipe made with chili powder – which isn’t bad. Not at all. But I bought that big bag of guajillo chiles last week and woke up yesterday with the thought, “wonder what enchilada sauce made with chiles is like”? I had to

I honestly don’t know what to call this. I wanted to call it Clean Out the Vegetable Drawer…and Chicken, but decided that, while descriptive, it was just a wee bit long. This is one of those recipes where, if you don’t have something, you just substitute something else, or skip it entirely. If I hadn’t

I have been making a version of this casserole for probably 15 or 20 years. Another recipe that I don’t remember the origin of – probably a magazine somewhere somewhen. I really did a lot of cutting out (or tearing out) of recipes. No magazine was safe. Sometimes the ads for certain products were the

I follow a woman on Instagram – I actually have no idea what the account name is – who goes to restaurants and tries their food, takes pretty pictures and gives reviews. If that isn’t the perfect job, I don’t know what is. Anyway, a week or so ago, she reviewed a Mexican restaurant somewhere
