These Weekly Menu recipes allow you to get out of that same ol’ recipe rut and try some delicious and easy dishes! This week I highly recommend making the Ultimate Meatloaf with Tangy Sauce, the Triple Lemon Sunshine Cookies, and the Crock Pot Honey Sesame Chicken!
Happy Sunday guys! It’s a hot, hot, hot one here in the ‘Burgh! Now I actually prefer the hot weather with a clear blue sky but living in Pittsburgh you can’t have the heat without unbearable humidity. It’s like 92F today with 82% humidity. Forget showering before going outside or god forbid, fixing your hair!
I walked down to our pond to feed the fish in our pond. I was outside maybe 15 minutes and was drenched when I got back in the house. Now you would think living here most of my life, I’d be used to it but nope; I hate it. It’s funny though as most folks from here tend to relocate to Florida when they retire. WHY??? I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s gorgeous there but it’s way hotter for longer periods of time with just as high, if not higher, humidity!
My new Sous Chef is rocking my kitchen!
So I had my purple cast removed last week only to be put in this evil Spica Splint cast for 8 more weeks! I’d rather have the cast back on as this thing is terrible BUT the only good thing is I can take it off to shower. However, I still can’t use my hand or move my thumb. Pretty much all I can do with it is elevate and stare at it.
And if Mr. Fantabulous wasn’t already the most amazing husband ever, he is totally ok pretty much doing everything, including the cooking! He’s really getting the hang of pizza making and jokes that he may just take over Friday night pizza making for me. I’m totally ok with that! If you follow me along on Instagram he’s the one making all of the stuff lately (with my guidance).
Pumpkin Spice EVERYTHING
Even though it’s mid-August, we’re seeing the PS photos and foods pop up on social media. Heck, some places are already selling PS foods in restaurants, coffee shops, and grocery stores. Seriously, it’s a bit extreme in my opinion. Don’t get me wrong as it’s a great fall flavor but so are apples, sweet potatoes, plus really anything with cinnamon or cardamon.
However, I think society finally went too far with the whole PS food. This is for real but the makers of SPAM are actually releasing Pumpkin Spice SPAM on Sept 23rd! Most first reactions are pretty much a big fat nope with a few folks saying they’d try it. I will not be one of them, not because it sounds gross but because I’m not a fan of canned meat, but think about it… pork pairs extremely well with all the ingredients in pumpkin spice. So this may work in canned meat. I could totally see this as a basket ingredient in Chopped or Guy’s Grocery Games on Food Network!
Would you try it?
