Have you noticed that whatever we’re having is always my favorite? We love good food and for the most part, I only fix things I like to eat. I do fix spaghetti and meatballs and I don’t like that at all but Vince loves it so . . being the good perfect wife that I am, I fix it.
For several years we’ve been enjoying bread from the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day book. One of my favorites from the book is the Onion & Rosemary Focaccia. When you make the bread dough ahead of time and just pull off what you need, it’s so easy to have fresh bread every night but we don’t have fresh bread every night. We’d be bigger than we are if we did!
Last week when we had so much snow, I got the hungries for smoked ribs. The smoker is in the garage and even though we got the driveway cleaned, the walkway to the front porch had a mountain of snow blocking my path and I put the smoker on the front porch when I’m using it. There was no way I could get the smoker to the front porch but this weekend Vince shoveled the snow off the walkway and I was able to get the smoker out of the garage and onto the porch and last night, we had smoked baby back ribs.
We also potato salad and cranberry beans. Sunday night we had black beans. Almost every night we have some kind of beans. Vince was talking to an old friend yesterday and they were talking about the price of groceries and she said “I guess everyone is going to have to eat pinto beans every night!” Vince said he didn’t say anything but he was thinking . . that’s what we do already! 🙂
Nothing like a good meal at home!
