My Catfish Nuggets - Cut em down and they cook faster! Plus I got the idea for the quick hot sauce mixture from a place here in NYC called Prune. They serve it on a fried oyster omelet ... crazy!!
Creamy Cheesy Grits - Simply one of my fave things for breakfast. I just had a conversation about grits vs. cream of wheat and if they deserve sugar vs. savory. Where do you stand? I'm a salty grits and sugary cream of wheat person. I can't switch the two and just don't understand sweet grits, not for me at least. I love how different food is for everyone.
Simple Blueberry Apple Pie - When I say simple, I mean it. I made this for the holidays and the only change in my home kitchen was I actually made the crust instead of buying it. That's my rule, make it on special occasions, but in a pinch check out the refrigerator section of the grocery store for a little shortcut to the party.
That's it, plus some smile and stories. I hope you enjoy the new episode! There's still time to make brunch for mom after it's over ... I'm heading to my kitchen to make some brunch for myself now. I think it'll be a croissant with jelly and some of the stewed chicken I made yesterday, bacon and a sunny side up egg. Then, maybe some apple cider with mint and strawberries. Trying to get rid of those berries and mint before they die on me! In the meantime, I made a cereal shake last night and didn't feel like making a big serving, but also wanted to make sure I properly measured the ingredients so I can share the recipe with you at a later date ... I give you two pictures I was so happy to take last night before I blitzed up my midnight snack ...
Apple Jacks, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Capn Crunch. Then, if you don't want to use a whole pint, but need to accurately measure half of it ... divide and conquer ...
The other half is in a freezer bag waiting on part two of the shake ... I think I have some Cocoa Puffs that need a new purpose in life ... Take care and enjoy the new show today!!!
