1. Using things I tend to save for a special occasion.
Our Sunday lunch was a big skillet of Migas. The first time I ever tried Migas, I had an apple cider with it. A bit of an odd combo, but it was really good.
Thinking of that reminded me that I had some mulled cider spices I’d bought before Christmas. We served it once during the holidays and it was so good! I decided that instead of saving them for some unknown, special occasion, I would add the spices to some apple juice and serve it with Sunday lunch.
We all enjoyed it and it made me glad to use something nice instead of saving it. That one treat made our ordinary lunch a little more special.
Is there anything you’re saving for a special time that you could be using now?
2. New slow cooker recipe coming – Korean Tacos
I tried out an idea for Korean Taco meat in the slow cooker and it turned out great! It’s very similar to this Sweet Korean BBQ, but it’s a homemade sauce instead of the package. I’ll be sharing it in the next few weeks.
3. Homemade pizza.
I ran across a free pizza making class on Craftsy a few weeks ago and finally took the time to watch it. It’s full of tips for making great pizza at home.
As I write this, I’ve got a batch of pizza dough resting on the counter. I can’t wait to try it tonight! I did forget to add the oil to the dough, so my dough is going to be a cross between the American-Style “Neapolitan” recipe and the Naples-Style “Napoletana” recipe. We’ll see how it turns out.
