Last week was a busy week in my kitchen. In addition to the pictures below, I also made homemade Chex mix. My daughter made homemade chocolate and butterscotch chip cookies. It’s a yummy combination! I didn’t get any pictures of those, either.

I pulled some sliced green tomatoes from my freezer and fried them. I don’t really care for them, but my husband, mother, and daughter love them. They always say I don’t make enough. lol But I get tired of standing there frying them! I made more than three, lol. This was all that was left on the serving plate when I remembered to take a picture. lol
My husband and daughter went to the movies last weekend, and brought home their left over popcorn. After it sitting there uneaten for a couple of days, I put it in the air fryer for a few minutes. It brought it back to life. yum!
We had Cincinnati Style Chili. When I make it, I make extra and freeze it. Then I just have to boil the pasta. Makes for an easy dinner.
I guess last week’s theme was freezer week. lol I had some cooked, sliced turkey in there, so I raided my pantry for a left over box of stuffing, and a jar of gravy. The hardest part of this meal was making the mashed potatoes.
For St. Patrick’s Day, I made a Shepherd’s Pie. It’s pretty simple to make, and a comfort meal that the whole family loved. I haven’t made it in years and years. So many years that my son didn’t remember ever having it before. lol
The Shepherd’s Pie served up. Yum!
My husband went to a church event on Saturday night, I picked dinner. lol I tried a new recipe Chicken Bacon Pasta. It was good! I want to tweak the recipe a little before I share it.
I did a little decorating on the counter by the stove. Well, kind of decorating. lol I put my wood lazy susan that I already had there. Here’s a similiar lazy susan without the design. I added my little egg salt and pepper shakers that were a gift.(Here are some similar egg salt and pepper shakers.) I put my wooden utensils in a large glass mug that I already had. Then I put my pink salt in a small glass canning jar with a bamboo lid. and this cute little plant. I love it! This section of the counter shows from the front door, so this looks so much nicer than the air fryer sitting there!
