The winters are long and cold in Minnesota. Sometimes you don’t want to (or can’t) leave the house for days on end and the cupboards get bare. So, when it comes time to make dinner, you put what you have in a dish and bake it up. The result – hotdish, just like mom used to make.
10% of every shirt you purchase helps Minnesota Computers for Schools provide technology access for lifelong learning. The organization trains Stillwater Correctional Facility inmates to refurbish computers donated by local businesses. The computers are then shipped to K-12 schools across the state for a nominal fee.

    James Beard Awards Heavy with Minnesotans

    Most of these were on my list already, so good thing it was built for evolution.

    Unfortunately, my one brief experience at a D’Amico and Sons was underwhelming so I’m hoping when I visit their establishments in the future they prove that experience to be the anomaly.

    I’m hoping this whole employment thing pans out soon so I can start eating out again with gusto.

    Last night Lyz invited us for some treats and beer (and handstands, another story.)  It was the perfect example of something SO simple being SO delicious.
I admit I was quite skeptical of nachos without cheese, but oh man they were good.  Besides, we used enough sour cream to make up for the missing dairy/fat.
Menu:Corn chips layered with butter&garlic sauteed sweet corn and spinach plus shredded pork loin that Lyz had cooked with some seasonings.Those went in the oven for a bit, and when they came out we squirted lime all over them and added spoonfulls of avocado and sour cream as we ate.
Enjoyed with a selection of New Glarus beers, Fat Tire Skinny Dip, and some Blue Moon seasonal selection while sitting around Lyz’s coffee table talking about books, boys, and cute animal videos.

    Project!

    Last week after a half pound of blue cheese stuffed bacon wrapped dates, Fuzzy and I decided we needed a food project.  It will help me focus on things that make me happy, rather than on the fact that I’m still job searching, and will quench her desire for a project.  (She kept suggesting ones that involved limiting our wardrobes or making crafts, none of which seemed like more fun than work.)

    Our project will involve cooking new things, but beyond that the details need to be worked out.  Since most of my kitchen work has been as an observer/eater and hers has been figuring out what to pair with bacon, it will be a learning experience for the both of us. 

    I for one want to get over my fear of cooking meat - specifically, poultry, fish, and pork.  (I don’t know why but beef has always seemed more manageable; probably because undercooked beef = rare but undercooked poultry/pork = botulism etc.)

    To end on a positive note, here are some things I know I can make tasty versions of:
    Deviled Eggs (see below)
    Polenta (soft)
    Best Eggs In The World
    Grilled Cheese Sandwich
    Sangria
    Aforementioned Bacon-Wrapped Dates

    And, some pictures of recent homemade treats:
