Bacon-Pepper Dogs With Avocado Cream

Seems like every food has its own day and yesterday happened to be National Hot Dog Day so that’s what we had.  Instead of traditional toppings I made a crispy bacon-jalapeno-sweet pepper saute and Creamy Avocado Dip.  The flavors of the saute were perfect-no need to add spices or salt. We had a couple leftover so I… Continue reading Bacon-Pepper Dogs With Avocado Cream

Italian French Toast Sandwich

Today is my Daddys 78th birthday.  When I spoke with him this morning he was planning to bale hay.  He has a friend helping him and he does like to be on a tractor (of any kind) so he will have fun.  At least they are getting started early before the afternoon heat wave hits.… Continue reading Italian French Toast Sandwich

Hot dogs again–this time with Opa’s Hatch Green Chili Smoked Sausage. These peppers are awesome!

Spicy Philly Cheese Steak Sliders

 “I wont be impressed with technology until I can download food” Yesterday for lunch I made philly cheesesteak sliders on ciabatta rolls but this time I spiced things up a little bit by adding some crushed red pepper and cayenne pepper.  My husband and I both like food that has a little kick, actually ALOT of kick.  These really… Continue reading Spicy Philly Cheese Steak Sliders

Grilled PBJ

“Have the habit of happiness” PBJ sandwiches….who doesn’t love them?  This morning it was raining and I was craving something sweet which is very unusual but seems to be happening more frequently as I get older.  Why is that?  Do people actually develop some sort of sugar deficiency?  I may really have to find out… Continue reading Grilled PBJ
