Mashed potatoes will never get old to me. As one of the three “vegetables” that I would eat as a kid, I ate them practically every day. At family dinners I would always mash my potatoes, peas and steak together; my mom called it my homemade shepherd’s pie, even though I would never have eaten a shepherd’s pie back then. I also remember the first time I had a double stuffed potato… in LOVE! My brother gave me a potato masher for my birthday, something I have wanted for ages!, so I have been back on my mashed potato game. These days I am interested in finding more unique combinations for my mashed potatoes.
There are very few things that I would not put Buffalo sauce on. I love the flavor and all the varieties of it. I have made all sorts of buffalo recipes, including one of my favorites the Buffalo Chicken Mac’N’Cheese Casserole. That recipe was some serious comfort food, but this recipe is a bit fancier and not so hard on your arteries. It is a good idea to grill the chicken for this recipe, but you can also bake it if you do not have access to a grill. I baked it when I originally cooked it.
Poolside grilling is always a good time. I like to make burgers when grilling at the pool because they are easy and don’t need a plate. I have made these bison burgers a few times in the last week and they have been a hit each time. Bison has a higher protein and mineral content per calorie than many other meats. I like bison burgers because they are a little bit healthier than regular beef burgers, but still give you a similar flavor.
I just realized that most of my fish recipes are for Mahi Mahi, but pretty much any white fish can be substituted for most of my recipes that use Mahi Mahi. I personally just use Mahi Mahi because I live in the mountains in the middle of Colorado and don’t have a very large seafood selection. Those of you who live on the coast are very lucky! While I was living in New Zealand last summer, I loved going to the farmer’s market every Sunday and buying fresh fish off the fishing boats.
I want to begin this week’s Throwback Thursday by thanking all of my followers, especially anybody who was reading my blog at the time when I originally posted this on Tumblr. I have come a long way in a short time; I am officially a featured publisher on FoodBuzz!
This recipe was one of the first things I made after beginning my weekly cooking lessons with my mom this past fall. It is easy to make and teaches you some culinary basics, such as blanching and peeling tomatoes to make a concasse. This dish is one of my favorite go-to recipes for dinner with guests. It would also be a great surprise for your Valentine this Monday! 😉
To go with the Trailer Trash Pot Roast, I made a green bean casserole for our holiday dinner. This recipe (from AllRecipes) is a little different than others because it uses sour cream instead of mushroom or onion soup. I think the sour cream adds great flavor. I will definitely be using this recipe from now on. Green bean casserole is another good holiday dish because you can easily increase the recipe for a large group.
