The Ultimate Nacho Platter

If I can remember well, we were only four people the night I made this nacho platter I thought I was hungry and I wanted the biggest nacho platter I could lay my hands on. In fact, I had planned to make two plates…wishful thinking. We didn’t finish this one plate. It was just way too filling. I was supposed to top it up with sour cream and green onions and pimento and some really hot pepper sauce, but I was so hungry, so we started devouring and only remembered the extra toppings when the plate was half empty. Have a pleasant weekend! Continue reading

Macaroni and Cheese with Ground Beef

This dish was a hit. For the breadcrumbs I just threw 2 slices of whole grain bread in a chopper and made fresh crumbs. You can use Panko or other fancy crumbs if you like. You can also increase the amount of cheese if you want. I wish you a very pleasant weekend. Our day has started with SUN…..YES LOTS OF IT!

Southwest Chicken Skillet

I seem to get so busy these days so I am always looking for a quick recipe that takes the minimum time possible. I found this on Budget Bytes by Beth. At first, I must say I was very skeptical but then the dinner turned out really great. The best part of this recipe? throw all ingredients into the pot, add the broth, season to taste (I added cumin and Paprika), bring to boil and simmer for twenty minutes. I have added this to my quick recipe repertoire and I plan to make it again, soon. Have a pleasant week! Ours is full of sun….such a beautiful day! Continue reading
