Day 9 – Nothin’ Says Lovin’ Like something From The Oven

It has taken me nine days but here it is! The focus of my June ‘Accentuate the Positive’ challenge for today is everyone’s favourite – FOOD. πŸ₯˜

The title of this post was my son Dan’s motto growing up. (Ok it is the Pillsbury motto but Dan used it a lot). He loved to eat and now he loves to cook (and he still loves to eat).

Makin’ Bacon! Five pounds of bacon! We eat a lot of bacon – especially on salad, since bacon has no calories if you put it on salad. πŸ˜‰
Spiced pork salad with homemade croutons.
Elegant chef salad with wine. (It’s the wine that makes it elegant).
Dan fired up the barbecue. His steaks are good but his seafood is phenomenal.
Christmas supper – my favourite part of Christmas! (Or any holiday when I can have turkey). I love the dark meat! 🀢
Ham supper – we eat so much asparagus! It is very good for a body and so delicious.
Gnocchi stew. It’s like regular beef stew but I don’t have to peel the potatoes. πŸ™ƒ
Loaded nachos – what’s not to love about nachos? Son Dan puts bacon on his nachos and we use spicy hamburger on ours. Both versions are delicious!
Last night’s supper (served at 2:30 PM) – chicken fajitas. I am thinking that if I do another challenge, it might be quick, easy, hearty meals to serve at off-times for SHIFTWORKERS. That is a challenge!
Butter tarts – coconut on the left and walnut with raisin on the right
Turtle cheesecake – so sweet 😳
Of course we have to make dedicated meals for Kat πŸ•β€πŸ¦Ί. We make a big pan full and freeze it in weekly portion for her.

Nine days down and twenty-one days to go! I think I might crush this challenge. πŸ€”

Have a great day and I hope to see you tomorrow. πŸ‘‹

  2. Love pictures of great food! I’m a quantities buyer and cooker. Usually do 3 to 5 pounds of thick bacon at a time (the bacon smell lingers a LONG time during the winter). I only cook it to about 75% so it can be warmed up to how β€˜bendy’ I like it or β€˜crisper’ for the Hubs. I freeze it in a large container with parchment paper separating the layers. This was a great blog Anne Marie. Carry on…

  3. Thank you, Suzanne. I still find it difficult to cook for just the two of us. There are many ‘family size’ dishes that I just do not make because they do not downsize well and the leftovers do not freeze very well either.
