It’s funny. Sunday, in my brain, is supposed to be for ‘Sunday Meals’. You know, the fancy, time-consuming meals you can’t get accomplished during the week. But rarely does it end up being that way around here. Sunday is typically the day I go out during nap time and get my meal plan/shopping done for the week. It sounds silly, but that little mission takes time, so I am always rushing back home to get dinner on the table before it’s too late. Sunday dinners usually need to be low maintenance and ultra quick for me. And often times that means firing up the grill to throw steak or fish on and often times it’s paired with these Grilled Sweet Potato Wedges. Insanely quick. Continue reading
Peaches are popping up all over the place these days, guys. And man are they tasting amazing. We can’t get enough.
This has sort of been the ‘house salad’ going on in our home lately. It pairs with everything as an amazing side dish. But really…I prefer it alone, all by it’s pretty little self, as the perfect meal. Continue reading

When I first moved up to Minneapolis I waited tables at this place. There was a reuben on the menu that they were sort of known for at the time. But it wasn’t like any other reuben I’d ever had. The corned beef was braised. So the results were not a slice of dry beef, but the most tender, pull-apart, juicy bliss. It was basically like a love child between a pot roast and a corned beef brisket.
Fast forward about a bajillion years and here I was, just this past weekend, standing among a St Patricks Day haven at the local market: a giant cooler full of corned beef briskets. Score! Totally trying this reuben thing at home. Continue reading
‘The Holidays’. Is it safe to say they are upon us? I’m going to go ahead and declare a yay on that. It is November, after all. And the hustle and bustle is right around the corner. I’ll be the first to admit, I love it. Most of it.
I love it because of the constant gathering around the table with loved ones. People just tend to get together more often, at least in my world. Whether it’s a group of couples having a fun dinner out on the town, old friends who are hosting a gathering in an effort to get the ‘gang’ back together, or simply having dinner at other families houses, we just tend to do it more often around this time of year. And I’m TOTALLY cool with that. Continue reading
