Like many others this January , I ve chosen to attempt to blog again
Mostly for chronological purposes but also for a hobby for myself . This stay at home mama desperately needs one. ( for the record , I’m not even kinda crafty , crochet & knitting is out . Does shopping count ? I use to read books ) .
Since this blog at this point is mainly for phot dumps , recipe recaps and personal photos , ill spare any lengthy catch ups and jump right in . Again
This was a quick , I forgot to take out anything from the freezer dinner .
I used leftover crock pot chicken ( literally put chicken in crock pot nothing else ) , rose sauce , parm and mozz . Oh and ginormous penne noodles.
This roasted garlic dip is amazing !
If you are not a serious garlic lover I would refrain from eating this recipe , but if you are like me and can’t get enough garlic , make it and double the recipe
1 whole clove of roasted garlic
1 package of cream cheese ( the rectangles ) softened
1 cup sour cream
Salt and pepper , parsley
Mash the garlic . Combine with the other ingredients . Let sit in the fridge until you can’t stand it anymore
Notice lack of vampires
The next couple of photos are just meals I cooked over the holidays . We ended up hosting a few times as it was just easier with the kids
The above is a steak , garlic and parm rice and sautéed brussel sprouts i made for the husband
The above was my plate of the meal I hosted for my brother and his kids . It was a full house but a lot of fun . My only complaint was my stuffing didn’t turn out . Again .
I have figured out the stuffing issue though . It was more of a “bird” issue than a stuffing issue really .
Carrots . Mashed potatoes and gravy . Peas . Turkey and brussel sprouts . Unpictured ridiculously soft dinner roll with butter .
Lots of wine
And the perfect ending to this entry . Our family holiday photo this year .
Happy new year !
