Notes & Asides

“…Whipping up delicious dishes with what’s on hand” usually depends on what was or is on sale. I’ve been an extreme couponer for many years and if not for BOGOs with matching store and manufacturer coupons, we definitely wouldn’t be eating as well as we do. Food prices are on the rise–especially meat–and I don’t see any of it coming down any time soon. Our income is wholly dependent on the new housing industry and everyone knows how unpredictable that is. With that in mind, what I whip up is contingent upon on what I find in my very large pantry, fridge, and/or freezer. We’re not highbrow sophisticates; just ordinary folk who love to eat affordable, great tasting food. 😊

About the pictures–I am neither a fancy food stager, nor a photographer. Some pictures were taken with an old Kodak digital, some with a Nikon Coolpix S6300, some with a Nikon DSLR, some with a Samsung Galaxy S9+ phone. So, please try to look past the blurry, cloudy (steam from hot food), off-center, washed out, too dark images, ugly dishes, or a messy kitchen in the background. 🤭

This website will always be a work-in-progress. I’m constantly on the hunt for the perfect color scheme and imagery to convey my current artistic mood. Don’t be surprised if you drop in and find a completely new theme on the site. 😃

I love smileys and exclamation marks! 😍

Not every plate photographed is mine. I’m usually on some sort of diet. If the recipe or plate is loaded with calories, fat, and/or carbs, bear in mind my husband and sons aren’t dieting. 😋
