That’s Amazing… Food! 

Some days I wake up just… hungry. As I was killing time as to not wake up any of our housemates (i.e., family staying with us) by getting up too early… I got to looking at current news articles on my iphone, which naturally (for me ;)) led to this great food article by The Food Network.  By the way, another article  I came across this morning was the news about the recent earthquake in Italy. I can somewhat (native California gal here) imagine the scare and stress people must be experiencing, you’ll be in my prayers Italian friends! I am happy to know that so far no deaths have been reported.  Thank you for giving us such great food Italy.  In honor of our Italy friend this am, here you go…  Here is the article, it looks too yummy not to share.   Hungry in California, g. *stock photos 

Velveta Cheese Sauce 

This is so darn easy and so delish 4 ounces Velveta, cubed 1/2 cup heavy cream Slowly heat the cream Add in the Velveta  Stir until smooth Dip & Eat *serve heated as a dip, serves 4/6  I happened by these in my local grocery store. Only 15 grams of carbs per serving and low in calories? Yes, please.  I microwaved one about 1 minute per side. Cook until crunchy like chips. Sliced them up like chips, they made great dipping chips for my Velveta cheese sauce!  I enjoyed the velveta cheese sauce over a bit of cooked ground round (you could use ground turkey) cooked with onions and tomatoes and topped cilantro. Used my crunchy like-chips to dip. Yum!  This was so good.  Enjoy your Sunday all. g.

Each day he is here continues to be such a miracle and I am thankful about that.  But, this Nanna sometimes needs a distraction. So getting up at 4am because I can’t sleep anyway and needing a distraction… cooking sure can help. 🙂  Of course I saved the putting together of this dish for my lunch/snack, it sure is tasty Here’s what you need. Plus a 1/4 cup water.  Begin to cook up your Mexican chorizo. Here is what the package looks like, in case you were wondering. It’s a soft sausage. Use 1/2 the package for this recipe.  Slice 1/2 an onion thin  Cook the onion until soft  Cook the chorizo until cooked, it will begin to get a tiny bit crispy when it’s done.  Here my onions are half way there… Dice into small cubes 8oz of velveta cheese, add the 1/4 water and the …
