Even if you love being in the kitchen, don’t you sometimes just want a break?… Not from baking cookies!… Never from baking cookies… But from the dinner grind?… Sure there’s the option of eating out, but for those of us on a budget (isn’t that everybody?), that can get expensive. For me, the more practical (and honestly, preferred) answer is leftovers. I love leftovers, and in my opinion there’s no better leftovers than a casserole.
Burgers are a meal staple around here. Partly because they tend to be quick and easy, but mostly because Dave’s a burger fanatic. Seriously, that guy could happily eat them every single day! Anyway, he’s been after me to replicate a burger that we’ve been ordering out, and I think I’ve come pretty close with these.
The temperature’s rising here, tree’s are budding, and flowers are popping out everywhere! Suddenly I’ve found myself craving crisp green salads, and have been having fun playing around with new dressings for them.
I was so apprehensive about this post. We just moved and it’s the first one I’m doing from our new home. I’m still learning the new kitchen layout and stove/oven, which (I’m sure you know) means everything takes way longer to do because nothing is where I’m used to it being. Even worse, I had no idea how I was going to take the pictures, not knowing where the best natural light is here. Plus other than the actual camera, all the photography equipment is still packed. Luckily, it wasn’t raining…
Today I’m posting something that I’m sure many people never thought they’d ever see here, on The Misfit Baker… salad.
