So Simple. No recipe required.

It's amazing to see some of the recipes that pop up. The one dish I find so simple it could be put into a recipe for dummies book.  Oh, wait... There is one already.  Really?

All I needed for dinner were a few simple items:
Tomato, basil, mozzarella, bread, and a vinaigrette dressing.

A bit of cutting was involved 
And just look what dinner is...

Nothing hard about it.
Until Next Time...

Let the games begin.

Tonight the XXXth Olympic Games
are in London.
What better to watch the games than 
with a very traditional London dinner.

Fish and Chips. 
served on my IKEA plate

Oh, can't forget the coca cola.

Until Next Time...

A Taste of Cheyenne

This last weekend Cheyenne Frontier Days kicked off.
I had the pleasure of kinda being a tour guide. (showing Pat around Cheyenne)

Part of the tour was the Historic Governors Mansion
I love the kitchen
For lunch we headed to the Luxery Diner. 
 The small dining area ran 
as a trolley from 1896 to 1912 
before becoming a diner in 1926.

We both had the Chili Cheeseburger.
of course my favorite word is

What does Feasting in Fort Collins think? 5 stars!

Until Next Time...

Down by the Bayou, in Cheyenne?

If you have never been to Louisiana or even if you have, Cheyenne has a great place to bring back some memories of the food. The kids and I celebrated my new job and went some place completely new. Judi's Cajun Kitchen opened their doors June (last month).  What do they serve? Authentic Cajun and Southern Creole.  
So, what was on the menu that the kids and I tried?
My son and I shared the Stewed Chicken. This was served with rice, vegetables, and a sweet corn bread muffin.

My daughter had chicken strips and sweet potato fries.
For dessert I ordered Pralines

 What did the kid's think?

Until Next Time...

Neighborhood food and fun

Tonight was something fun the kids and I did. And yes, it did involve dinner.
Hot Dogs and Subs.
This was the 3rd annual Cheyenne Neighborhood Night Out.
Like a meet and greet with people in your neighborhood.

Asian Anyone

Tonight, I fixed something that is better than
an oriental restaurant would have. (or at least I think so)
Spring Rolls (fried in rice paper)

Serviced with an Asian sauce and rice.
With an apricot

And to go with dinner we watched

What a perfect Asian Night.
Until Next Time...

It's Cool

Since the weather today reached 93. 
I didn't want to turn on the oven to make it hotter.
So, what was dinner that didn't include the stove, the oven, 
or the microwave...

Cucumber Soup and a Berry Sage Cooler 

Until Next Time

It is a good morning

My youngest daughter had a friend sleep over last night. 
And the choice for breakfast...

 French toast, kicked up a notch.

In addition oranges and maple sausage 
complimented breakfast quite well.

Until next time...
