Dude can Cook

Well, okay he didn't make this. Thanks to Donna at My Tasty Treasures who got it from Shelby at Grumpy's Honeybunch, I decided to make one of my favorite cocktails from a local restaurant. It came pretty darn close. I had to cut down on the peach schnapps amount since I'm not a huge fan of peach, but enough to taste. Very refreshing...when I'm not spilling it on my laptop. My keys are now sticking a bit, but it didn't short out, so that was a relief!


Dude is on vacation for nine days, so he had to do some cooking while I was slaving away at the cereal plant. He grilled up a whole bunch ....I mean a whole BUNCH of dark meat and he and Hermit Crab feasted on legs and thighs while he made a breast for Drama Queen. He had leftover thighs, so on Friday night he decided to create something with his leftovers.
Garlic toast

So he took my square glass casserole dish, layered in spaghetti sauce, some fresh peppers and onions from the garden, cooked mini shells, the cut up grilled chicken, a little more sauce and some fresh grated sharp white Cheddar and Co-Jack cheese. Heated it up in the little toaster oven and it was dinner!
See? He CAN do it if he wants! No more buying his story of "I can only grill".....

Wow, well at least he did something other than the grill! LOL. Man, I can't get Grumpy to do anything but the grill!

Glad you enjoyed your drink...and that your laptop survived it!

I can't even get mine to grill! He does make a mean sandwich and cinnamon toast so I'm not complaining too much :-)

This look meal looks good- great job Dude!

My husband grills the meat and that's it! He could never put together that meal!

sitting back letting him cook, you sipping on an adult beverage, can life get any better?

Everything looks wonderful Tami...i think he should get the "Dude of the Year" award, just sayin....
