Gobble Gobble

I wanted to call this post “An almost 4-year-old and a 40 something year old tackle a turkey”, but I thought that might be a little too long, so I just went with “Gobble Gobble.” Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I thought this would be an appropriate time to show you how we… Continue reading Gobble Gobble

Chicken Fried Rice on the Blackstone

I was looking for a quick weeknight dinner recipe that incorporated the Blackstone since its now back in the rotation. It occurred to me that chicken fried rice would be perfect. I probably should have/could have looked for recipes online (and I will in the future), but I remembered that I had used this stuff… Continue reading Chicken Fried Rice on the Blackstone

Flatout Flatbread Pizzas

  As a dual income family with a 3.5 year old, we’re always looking for quick ways to get dinner on the table that The Boy will eat. One thing we make pretty regularly is our New York style pizza. Mix the dough up a few days ahead of time, let it sit in the… Continue reading Flatout Flatbread Pizzas
