Sunday Supper

 

Every Sunday my family gets together and we eat dinner. This has been a tradition my whole life my mom always had an open door policy if anyone wanted to come they could and she fed them and gave family time. When it got to be too much for her to continue I took over, to this day we have Sunday dinner and Coope’rs friends are always welcome to come. Now we watch movies or have started watching Netflix, HULU, or Amazon shows (right now it is Jack Ryan).

I wanted to share some of my recipes for Sunday suppers some take more time than others but it feeds a crowd and lets you have time with your family.

This week I made street tacos with Barbacoa and they were tasty.

I start by making the barbacoa in the crock pot and then set up a taco station so everyone can build their own.

The Barbacoa starts with a Chuck roast, I got a 3lb one but you can go smaller or larger just adjust the seasoning

 

I line  crockpot with a liner (I hate doing dishes so this saves me every time) 

add everything in the crockpot 

cook on high for 6 hours then using your tongs shred the meat and remove any pieces of fat.

I also drain a little bit of the liquid if needed then make your tacos 

Note: this is also really good on a bun for a sandwich or I made a quesadilla with it the possibilities are endless

*****Side note: Cooper became a vegetarian over a year ago so I adjust this for him by not serving him barbacoa but making peppers and onions with Quorn chicken nuggets he loves it.

Servings 15 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 Chuck roast
  • 1/2 cup Honey
  • 1 jar Roasted Red Peppers
  • 1 jar Sun dried tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Worchester sauce

  • 2 tbsp Ketchup
  • 1 Cup Water or beef stock
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. In a crock pot add all ingredients including juices of the jarred goods. (Tip: To add more flavor you can sear the chuck roast but the taste is there without it.) Place on high for 6 hours remove some of the liquid and shred meat with a pair of tongs (the meat should fall apart) removing any pieces of fat left. Keep on low till serving.

I make the barbacoa into street tacos below by making taco bar with lots of topping like corn salsa, Pico de Gallo, cojita cheese, pickled onion and jalapenos and a sriracha mayo sauce which is equal parts mayo, sriracha, chopped cilantro, a splash of milk to thin it out.

they are so good. Hope you like them.

Meal Prep

Hello…..

It has been very busy over at our house so I have been trying to do a little meal prep for lunch at least and so far they have been successful. I thought I would share because the recipes are pretty tasty to us.

First up is Spicy turkey meatballs with Zoodles.

A little tip from me to you when meal prepping one thing try to incorporate at least one of the ingredients in to another meal like zoodles popped up later in my week with Chicken parmesan and if I make riced cauliflower I use half for another meal, rice, quinoa, etc etc. it really does save you time and fewer dishes and I usually place it in a container until I figure what to use it for and if I don’t use it that week I freeze it for another week.

This bacon tasted like a really good bacon I cant say I noticed much of a difference in taste but I noticed it did not cook away and disappear like a lot of bacon’s on the market. The taste was smoky, crispy, melt in your mouth bacony goodness. The cost was very reasonable and I definitely would buy it again.

Simple Truth

We got to sample for free Simple Truth cleaning product 

  • ONE (1) sample roll Simple Truth Paper Towels
  • ONE (1) canister Simple Truth Fresh Mint Cleaning Wipes
  • ONE (1) Simple Truth Pop Socket (for your mobile phone!)
  • ONE (1) Coupon Booklet featuring over $30 of savings on Simple Truth products

First off let me just say I have yet to be disappointed in the Simple Truth products they are all fantastic. The Fresh Mint Cleaning wipes have to be my absolute favorite cleaning product. I don’t think I have mentioned this before but one of our beagles is very sensitive (he has seizures) to cleaning products, candles, etc. This means that we are very careful to not agitate the little guy it is the worst to see him have a seizure and to know you caused it make it the absolute worst. the Fresh Mint Cleaning Wipes did not effect him at all and they smelled so good and were effective. Like all natural product you have to put some elbow grease in to anything you clean but it is effective I really enjoyed the smell I am not a big fan of strong smelling scents either (plus my sister is allergic to artificial Lemon so we are a bit limited). I highly suggest if you are near a Kroger or Fry’s try it out.

Fun red,white, and blue cake!

This is probably the easier cake to make and feeds a crowd, but takes a little time….

The cake starts with a regular box cake whichever white cake mix you like baked according to the package in a sheet pan or a good ol throw away 1/2 sheet metal baking pan (my personal favorite).

Once your cake is bake then cooled get a fork and poke a bunch of holes in the cake (fun project for kids).

Get a package of Jello whichever color or flavor combo you like I got mixed berry because we like that flavor and its blue. Make according to package. Poor over the top getting the jello in to the holes. Cover.

Refrigerate until set about 2 hours

then get a can or jar or make your own if you have time of cherry pie filling and slather it on top followed by a tub of cool whip or whipped topping of your choice if you are ambitious you can make your own whipped cream or whipped something then serve. Start to finish it takes about 4-5 hours with refrigerator time but I make this a day or two ahead and it just gets better.

hello!!

Why hello there… it has been awhile since we have blogged and I guess we just lost the will to get on for awhile. Sometimes life happens and you really don’t feel like sharing or capturing the not so good moments. With that being said I am working on getting us back to feeling the will to blog again. To be honest we have never made money on this and don’t have a lot of knowledge to get the perks of a blog and I don’t really know our place.

Let me explain

1.) We are middle aged sisters, the child we parent together is 20 now (type 1 diabetic) and not always a ray of sunshine.

2.) We love food (which is why we are always dieting to try to lose weight).

3.) We are not famous, we don’t have a lot of friends, we don’t have a lot of money (we are a paycheck to paycheck household).

4.) We really suck at being fake so what you see if what you get most days.

5.) We don’t wear makeup (we love makeup) most Saturdays we have not showered or put any makeup on but we have fun with the dogs 🙂

6.) The house is dirty, I would love to be organized and efficient but the truth is we just aren’t….

7.) I don’t have a $3000  camera to take pictures and sometimes things are blurry and imperfect.

8.) We both work Full-Time and sometimes we are tired 

9.) Our house is 20 years old needs some work (its time) 

10.) We are not conventional (we don’t have perfect teeth, hair, nail, skin, we are not skinny) my grammar needs help most days and I don’t really care if you have a problem with it.  

so with that being said things just aren’t always pretty all of the time and we lost our mojo or “Moxie”

 

My plan is to try to share a little more about our world and hopefully if you like us you come back but if you hate our faces move on.

 

2018 we are going to try this blog thing again.

 

Starting out first up is our beagle boys 

Teddy and Tyson

they are 7 1/2 years old brothers from the same litter, very loud barkers/bayers , spoiled rotten (they are babysat by my parents)

and we couldn’t love them any more.
