Those were the words out of Scott's mouth when he devoured tonight's dinner. Actually, those words came 10 minutes after dinner when he obviously could not shake this tasty meal from his head. It is a rarity for me to try a new recipe and have it go down so well. Scott usually tolerates my experimentation. But this, this was good. Penne a la Betsyfrom the Pioneer Woman. Shrimp and pasta with a creamy tomato sauce. Mmmm.
Another great recipe from PW is her chicken spaghetti casserole. Just go easy on the cayenne pepper.
I've yet to try the Marlboro Man sandwich, but I've heard it's amazing.
I've found that lately I do a lot of recipe searching online. My printer tray is full of recipes I've come across and printed out for "someday."
Allrecipes.com has become my go-to recipe finder. From there I found my beloved Pumpkin Muffins . . . it gave us the tastiest Thanksgiving turkey ever . . . . it helped me find something to do with my turkey leftovers . . . and was a good little kitchen helper for our at-home anniversary dinner with twice-baked potatoes.
Tomorrow we'll be making some good popcorn for National Popcorn Day. One of my favorite recipes is this insanely easy and fast one from my friend Ily. It's seriously a crime that you can get popcorn this good, this fast.
Pop a bag of microwave popcorn. In a microwave-safe bowl add 1/2 cup peanut butter, 1/2 cup light Caro syrup, 1/2 cup sugar. Heat it in the microwave, stirring occasionally, until smooth. Mix with the popcorn in a large bowl. Done.
And don't forget the ever delicious white chocolate popcorn. Basically the same idea, just make sure you have some good melting chocolate. Twice, we've received some of this stuff from very nice people and both times I have hoarded the popcorn and eaten it almost entirely on my own. Hands off!
