We went to my Dad’s for a family dinner last night, and the appetizers were out of this world!
I don’t have photos to share, but I have links to the recipes they used.
This Avocado Mango Salsa was just amazing. I could have taken the bowl and eaten it with a spoon!
Here’s the recipe for it:
Also, they had this fantastic Chorizo Fundido dip as well. So Good!
Here’s that recipe:
I highly recommend trying either (or both) of these recipes as soon as you can.
Discovered at my local Rite Aid:
The coffee fan in me approves!
We had our monthly potluck at work yesterday, and the theme was “salty snacks and dips.”
We had a contest for “best dip”… and I won!
Here’s the post that my employer put on facebook:
“The official Employee Dip Contest at Kent District Library – Service and Meeting Center saw plenty of delectable contenders, but at the end of it all, one dip reigned supreme: Mom’s Secret Dip.
Congratulations, Jen Wheaton, you have been crowned the Dip Queen – and Mr. T approves!”
Here’s my winning recipe:
Take a container of sour cream, and add to taste:
– Red Cap Adobo Seasoning (in the Mexican food aisle)
Mix it up until it tastes the way you want it to. J Easy Peasy!
We had a large meeting at work yesterday and Vault Catering of Grand Rapids provided the luncheon.
Today, I was offered leftovers, and jumped at the chance. Look how amazing this is! It’s some kind of chicken awesomeness in a wrap.
I don’t know what they call it, but I call it YUM.
This is the breakfast of champions:
I took a bag of Tyson chicken breast strips, and a bag of steamable green beans and potatoes, cooked them individually and mixed them together on a plate for a yummy, inexpensive lunch.
I stumbled across something amazing today. I was making a Birds Eye Cheesy Chicken Voila skillet dinner, which is pasta, chicken, broccoli, carrots and corn in a cheese sauce. For some reason, I opted to toss in some celery, green pepper and onion. I’m so glad I did! I threw a handful of sliced almonds on top before I ate it, and my goodness, it was outstanding! I ate it all before it even occurred to me to take a photo. That’s the only downside.
We had dinner delivered to us from Mineo’s Pizza.
I had Mamma’s Specialty Calzone, and Hubby had Chicken and Fries.
It was our first time ordering in since we moved into the new house.
Mamma’s Specialty Calzone features: Light Creamy Alfredo Sauce, Italian Sausage, Chicken, Onions, Mushroom (but I had them leave the mushrooms out), Bacon and Mamma’s Cheese Blend. So. Dang. Good.
It probably would have been enough for two meals if I hadn’t been a piggy and ate 3/4 of it at dinner.
Hubby said that his Chicken and Fries were really good. He also got boneless BBQ wings, but he’s saving those for lunch.
It was all very good! I can’t wait to have them bring me dinner again! 🙂
The Taste of the Gardens Cafe at Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park is amazing.
I especially love their wraps.
This, my friends, is a ham wrap.
