So, let us get real here. I love to blog. But, 50% of the time I completely forget to keep track of what I am doing. This mainly happens in the kitchen. When I think of a recipe I want to share with you guys I make sure to follow the entire process step by step so that it is easily replicated. And then I have recipes that I make “on a whim” – without writing down recipes, or taking pictures of the final product and they turn out SO good it hurts to know I did not record a single ounce of it.
But you before you think to yourself “who the hell cares, abby” – you’ve got nothing to show us …
I am going to make these recipes all over again just so that you guys can make them too!
Wahoo! You with me?
Here are the recipes you guys missed out on, and soon to be filled in on – plus, a little participation from you is needed to start the round up!
Also – I am inserting adorable pictures from when the boys were little, because who doesn’t want to see that?
Chicken Pot Pie –
I made this dish for my sister-in-law that just had a baby (you saw about in this post yesterday) I made a batch large enough that I was able to make one pie to eat that evening for dinner, and one to put in the freezer and bring to her house so her family could enjoy it when having time for dinner is not on the list!
The kids slammed this dinner which was absolutely shocking because they tend to be super picky at things that are mixed together. They question each little nuggets of food on their fork before sampling. A few nibbles in and this was gobbled up! Comfort food at its finest!
Pulled Pork –
Holy Pig you guys! I have made tons and tons of pulled pork recipes in the past. Usually they end in being smothered in our favorite bbq sauce before piling onto buns. THIS pulled pork in particular required zero extra saucing at the end. The flavors were through the freaking roof! We enjoyed it on buns with cole slaw one night, and the next piled high on blue corn nachos with pineapple, banana peppers and extra toppings. I could not stop eating (ask our guests) – This pulled pork will become a monthly family favorite!
fettucine Chicken Alfredo –
Dan nearly jumped over the table for a dinner make out session this was SO unbelievably delicious! We never made alfredo pasta for dinner – and yet it one of both of our favorite dishes. Owen of course being allergic is number 1. Number 2 – jarred alfredo grosses me out. Number 3 – making it from scratch gave me 100 reasons of why not to make it, how it could go terribly wrong. My word how I was wrong. Not only was this dish whipped up in the time it took to boil + cook the pasta – it was SO rich and SO much better than any alfredo we’ve ever had.
Guiness Corn Beef + Cabbage Rolls –
Who ever does not like corn beef, you may have fallen ill and need to get checked by a doctor. This salty tender beef has got to be the only red meat I look forward to during this time of year. The guiness corn beef recipe I used created a brisket that appeared nearly smoked. With a thick sticky glaze and the most tender rich meat inside. I pulled it apart – and used it to make corn beef cabbage rolls for Brody’s birthday party this past weekend. Chunks of corn beef, cabbage, swiss cheese and chopped green onion, rolled into an egg roll – baked until crispy and dipped into 1000 island dressing. Come on – no luck of the irish needed. Just a pair of stretchy pants. These were AMAZING!
My mouth is watering thinking of all of this deliciousness. I just need your help deciding what I should show you guys first! Leave me a comment below and tell me which dish you would like to see next week on the blog 🙂
