Jerk Chicken Gyros

Last night’s (and tonight’s) dinner. Jerk Chicken Gyros. ❤️ I normally cook them on the smoker, but my handy-dandy skillet did the trick. I used up the last of my Jerk Seasoning mix, so it’s definitely time to make some more. 💕 Jerk Chicken Gyros Servings: 4 Prep Time: 8 Hours Cooking Time: 15 MinutesContinue reading “Jerk Chicken Gyros”

Meatball Pesto Pasta

My go-to “I don’t want to cook” dinner. 4 simple ingredients: pasta, pesto, meatballs and parmesan cheese. I had a tomato I needed to use, so I chopped that up and tossed it in too. A simple chopped salad and homemade dinner rolls I had stashed in my freezer on the side. 😂 Making aContinue reading “Meatball Pesto Pasta”

Sweet Chile Sriracha Chicken Drumsticks

I love chicken drumsticks! They’re easy to cook, affordable and make a great canvas for a variety of spices. I may or may not have forgotten that I pulled out 5 lbs a few days ago and needed to cook them tonight. Prep took all of 5 minutes, which was so awesome! Plus, I onlyContinue reading “Sweet Chile Sriracha Chicken Drumsticks”

Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie

I had some leftover beef from last night’s BBQ Bacon Sliders, so some Cottage/Shepherd’s Pie it is! Good thing too because some of my red potatoes were sprouting. Be sure to drain the beef! 😂 It’s a mess if you forget. Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie Servings: 5 Cooking Time: 1 Hour Beef Filling: 2 lbs GroundContinue reading “Not-So Traditional Cottage Pie”

BBQ Bacon Beef Sliders

Finally! The BBQ bacon sliders! 😂 I was going to make them yesterday, but got home from work around midnight and was too exhausted to eat. So today’s the day! I only needed 1 pound of bacon, so naturally I baked 5 pounds. Because…bacon. Duh. 😆 BBQ Bacon Beef Sliders Servings: 4 Cooking Time: 40Continue reading “BBQ Bacon Beef Sliders”

Cheesy Beef & Broccoli Shells

Day 38 of my #PantryChallenge Quick and easy dinner tonight. Cheesy Beef & Broccoli Shells! It would have been leagues better if I’d had whole milk and fresh broccoli on hand, but what can ya do. It’s really easy, inexpensive and kids love it! Definitely one of my favorite weeknight meals. Cheesy Beef & BroccoliContinue reading “Cheesy Beef & Broccoli Shells”

Chicken & Vegetable Curry

Day 36 of the #PantryChallenge  I had a lot of the Curried Sweet Potato Soup I made last night left over so I repurposed it. Chicken & Vegetable Curry is what’s for dinner! I normally add cauliflower, sugar snap peas and zucchini but didn’t have any on hand.  Chicken & Vegetable Curry Servings: 5 CookingContinue reading “Chicken & Vegetable Curry”

Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs

Day 34 of my #PantryChallenge Dinner tonight is Sweet & Sour Meatballs over farfalle pasta! I normally make my meatballs with a 70/30 pork to beef ratio, but didn’t have any ground beef defrosted. 🤷‍♀️ So pork it is! This recipe also works great with ground turkey. You can, of course, use bottled sweet andContinue reading “Sweet & Sour Pork Meatballs”

Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole

Day 24 of my 8 week #PantryChallengeI had a Scatter Brain Jane moment yesterday and totally spaced pulling the Pork Half Loin out of my freezer. YAY!!! (sarcasm heavily implied) Sooo, I quickly thawed some chicken sausages and snagged a box of dehydrated Cheesy Hash Browns from my pantry, both of which I got fromContinue reading “Cheesy Chicken Sausage Hash Brown Casserole”
