In the Kitchen with Linda & Dinner Menu


Our youngest daughter turned 18! Hard to believe that my baby girl is 18! I made pork chops, mashed potatoes, beets, and homemade applesauce for her birthday dinner.

And chocolate cake, of course! Complete with trick candles picked out by her younger brother. lol

Check out this chocolate cake! Want to know my secret recipe for the best chocolate cake ever? Go buy a can of Hershey’s Cocoa and follow the directions on the back for the cake and the frosting. Not much of a secret, I know. lol But it’s so good!

We are finishing up the venison my husband put in the freezer last fall. This time we had bacon wrapped venison tenderloin. The guys were practically drooling at the thought of bacon wrapped meat. lol

On Sunday, we had Hot Ham and Cheese Sandwiches after church. They go together quickly, and are a family favorite. We usually use provolone cheese, but any cheese will work.

I did some freezer cooking yesterday. I cooked 3 pounds of hamburger and a pound of bacon.

They became Bacon Cheeseburger Nachos. Well, the meat part that went in the freezer. The chips and cheese will be added when we are ready to eat them. The recipe is from FreezEasy. Look for my review next week!

I cooked about 5 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts. About half will be turned into a recipe for the freezer tomorrow. The rest will go in the freezer just like it is for when I want cooked chicken.

I also put 5 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breast in the freezer raw. I like having options. lol
