I’m back again this week with what I’ve been up to in the kitchen.! Are you shocked? lol I am! lol
One thing I’m not shocked about though, is that fact that I had a Christmas party last night and didn’t take any pictures of the food! Ugh
But I am glad that I was so busy enjoying being with everyone, and playing a Christmas gift game, that I forgot pictures. I didn’t make all the food this year, like I have done in the past. I had everyone bring a dish. It was nice not to have to stress about the food! It was all family, so no one minded. But actually, even if it was friends, most friends wouldn’t mind at all contributing a dish.

We had pasta with meat sauce, green beans, and garlic bread one night. Ok, we usually have pasta every Tuesday night! lol Check out the garlic bread made from hamburger buns! It’s a great way to use up leftover buns. It works with hot dog buns, too! One of my daughters used to separate hot dog buns, and toast them. She called it dog toast. lol
Meatloaf is a family favorite. So is mashed potatoes. So this dinner was a hit. Yum!
I guess the theme of last weeks dinners was family favorites. Because on Thursday, we had another favorite. Jag. It’s a Portuguese rice dish cooked in one pan. You can use any kind of meat you want, even leftovers. My husband said the first time his family had it, the women that made it for them put fish in it. Here’s the Jag recipe I use, that’s from my Grandfather in law, and mother in law.
Last week I told you I had been on a grilled cheese kick. Here’s one I made last week. Grilled ham and cheese. The trick is to layer cheese, meat, cheese, so the cheese can glue it all together. I used shredded cheese, but slices work well, too. And yes, I often eat while working on the computer.
