#BLOGLIKECRAZY 2: #THE SEWING GOURMET...

... can you believe that I actually fell off the cooking wagon for several months.
I guess I had grown tired of all my regular recipes; couldn't come up with any meal plans ideas, couldn't even think of anything that might taste good. Not a good situation at all because eating out all the time is definitely the PITS! While trying to make some changes in this area a recipe for  NASHVILLE HOT CHICKEN popped up during blog surfing.  I had never heard of it but became very interested after reading a bit about it's history (you can read about it here). 
I took the slider approach although I've never ever made them.  You can imagine that when I Googled for a recipe I found lots of similar  recipes.  I took the ingredients I liked and that I knew I had on hand to come up with my rendition.  This didn't take much time at all especially since I had a bag of chicken tenders on hand.  Now I have a new recipe for my collection that I will use from time to time.

How do you pull yourself out of meal plan doldrums???

  1. Great video Faye! I think people should “revamp” their receipes adding new ones from time to time so they don’t get bored. I learned that years ago when my hubby and I chose a “plant based” diet. It literally changed our lives! I had to re-learn everything I had been taught about our beloved recipes. Also, I agree with you about going out to eat...we find it a HUGE struggle and only have a couple of favorite places. (Of course you can’t get better meals than at home!)

    I read the article about the “Hot Chicken” and found it cute and interesting. I bet that wife never expected her plan would backfire on her, LOL! Your sliders look yummy, were they?

    1. When I find a great restaurant I usually WEAR IT OUT to the point that I don't even like it anymore. Just adding 3 to 5 new recipes should keep me happy for a while.

  2. I think I first read about Hot Chicken via Calvin Trillin! That looks like a mighty tasty sandwich. I read cookbooks like novels, and my library is large. Whenever I'm in a rut I either sit down with a stack of books and see what hits me or I buy a whole lot of ingredients and remember my roots.

  4. When I hit the meal plan doldrums, Ryan will always bark at me that he wants something else, often with a suggestion. I"m in trouble when that boy decides he's moving on. I love a meal on a cute little roll, and this one looks great!

  5. They look yummy! Eating out IS the pits! There is nothing like a home-cooked meal, even if it is quick.
