Gourmet Tater Tot Casserole

We are now officially out of the mid west and I can stop pretending that calling something hot dish is socially acceptable. I don't think that in our 10 years living there I ever willingly called something I made a hot dish. Now I don't even have to silently nod as I inwardly cringe at the word.

No matter what it's called, I've been craving a tater tot covered meat dish for weeks now. As I checked out various recipes online I was prepared to make the standard ground beef and cheese casserole but then I came across this amped up version of tater tot casserole and I was inspired!

Sweet Corn and Red Pepper Fritter Burgers

A lot has changed since I last posted. We've sold our house, got a new job and moved to Texas and all the craziness that accompanies choices like that. We're loving being in the South again and realizing we probably should have done this along time ago. We left behind lots of good friends and memories but we're excited about everything ahead of us in this new adventure!

The move meant a few months of essentially no cooking as everything was packed up and then we had awhile in between houses with hotels and such so it feels good to be back in a nice kitchen again and cooking away.

Strawberry, Goat Cheese and Pickled Apple Avocado Toast

If you could see beyond the borders of any of these photos in this post you would see our house is getting pretty chaotic. We've just sold our house and we're in the process of making a move to San Antonio, Texas next month. We're definitely excited but I detest even the thought of moving and so I can't wait for all of this to be over.

Caramelized Onion and Smoked Paprika Hummus Wontons

Let's celebrate National Hummus Day! You know it's one of my favorite holidays and I'm not quite sure why we still have to work. I'm in favor of everything closing down each year and we just sit in our homes and eat hummus.

If you're in for celebrating with me, I've got two things for you today. First is a coupon for your hummus supply. Check out Sabra's homepage for the details and a coupon that's only available TODAY!

The Unofficial Meal with Sabra

Weekends around here usually mean game nights for us. We love to get together with friends and play cards, board games or now that it's finally nice outside, lawn games and grilling.

Salmon Croquettes

I'm all for the traditional Super Bowl snacks like chips and dip but sometimes you just gotta step it up a bit and go a little fancy. That definitely doesn't mean it has to be complicated though, and you can just add a fancy name like croquettes instead of patty and you're golden.

Bacon Wrapped Pork Tenderloin with Apple and Sausage Filling

How quickly the time goes. I feel like we were just enjoying the last days of Summer and now here we are prepping for another Thanksgiving. We haven't had snow here yet so at least I can be Thankful for that. And good food. I've been surrounded by some amazing food the last week or so, from restaurants and friends to trying some new recipes in my own kitchen. It's so amazing to see what people with so much more talent than I have can do with some simple ingredients.
