Yummy Yum Yum – Stream of Consciousness Saturday #SoCS

I suppose you could consider me a “foodie”. I enjoy yummy, delicious foods and am usually willing to try new dishes (as long as they’re not too spicy, since spicy doesn’t agree with me much anymore). And I do enjoy cooking and baking and trying out new recipes. When I started using a crock pot and an air fryer (both of which I really enjoy using) I went looking for recipes and came across the website and app Yummly, and I really like it. I have found so many recipes on there that I have saved, and many that I have used frequently, like a crock pot lasagna, air fryer pork chops, air fryer chicken breasts, easy Korean ground beef, chicken parmesan, ….. I don’t know if I will be able to get through and try all the recipes I have saved, though. And there are so many other recipes on the site to look through and being added every day, that I’m sure the number of saved recipes I have will keep growing. And since I don’t have a big family to cook for, I’m always looking for simple, easy recipes, and Yummly hasn’t disappointed me yet.

Because I do have a sweet tooth, I like to bake, and frequently make brownies, cakes, pies, and cookies (but not from scratch – I’m not that good!) And because I’m a chocoholic, often the cakes, cookies, and pies are chocolate. For Christmas, I made sugar cookies and snickerdoodles, which of course were yummy. I would have made more things, but I didn’t have the time.

I fixed my first glazed spiral sliced ham yesterday for Christmas. I’ve fixed hams before, but had never glazed one before. Thankfully it turned out well and the brown sugar glaze was quite yummy.

I hope everyone enjoyed a yummy Christmas dinner and yummy Christmas desserts yesterday, too.

The Pork Chop Mistake – One-liner Wednesday #1linerWeds

While fixing pork chops for dinner the other night, I cut my finger slightly. As I went into the other room to grab a Band-Aid, my brother spotted me.

Brother: Did you mistake your finger for a carrot?

Me: No, I mistook it for a pork chop.

One-Liner Wednesday – Quite the Impression



Keen – Tuesday Use It In A Sentence #tuesdayuseitinasentence

Tony admired the keen blade of his new knife and was keen to try it out. “Where should I start?” he wondered aloud with a grin on his face as his gaze passed over his choices. He licked his lips and finally pointed with the knife. “You. I’ll start with you.” Tony grabbed the slab of roast beef off the counter from beside the loaf of bread, head of lettuce and chunk of cheese, and began slicing.
