Busy Week

It has been a really busy week.

With work, football practice two hours a night, and a special project I have been working on, I have not had much time to cook and even less time to take pictures of it.   Dinners this week have been re-hashes of things I've done before or simple things like the beef burritos I made tonight.


Not really a recipe, just used the taco seasoning from Brian and Marilyn's Hot Sauce Daily blog, some garlic and mince onion for the ground beef.  Then throw in some cheese, lettuce, and some homemade salsa.  The dipping sauce is just ranch dressing souped up with a fire roasted red jalapeno pepper. 

The good news is I am off for the weekend and loaded up for some grilling therapy.  


Ya'll have a great weekend!

  4. I'm so pleased to find another person who is unashamed to use something from a can. Unbelievably I got a second Spam sample box yesterday. I'm turning into the Spam queen (um, king).

  5. Life gets crazy. Your beef burrito is still proof that you can still deliver a great dinner.

    I hang my head in shame to what my dinners look like mid-week.

    Cheers.

  6. Looks like a plan - but tell me - why all the different types of charcoal? Different uses or just what's in the garage?

  9. I need to hit the coal store soon, my supply is down to the nitty nitty gritty, but enough to smoke a few slabs of meats this past Thursday...my meat never seems to make it to the wrap side of things...slice, and its fork to mouth...

  13. What I'm really liking about this is that ranch dipping sauce. I've never thought about it for Mexican type flavors. Love it. Last week I made Hidden Valley Buttermilk Ranch Dressing from the packet. It's been years since I've made that stuff and had forgotten how really good it is. Bought some more and next time will ramp it up with a jalapeno.
