I hate tomatoes. I mean loath them with a passion. I think fresh tomatoes are a slimy scourge sent down from some alien planet. I can eat tomato sauce, ketchup, and salsa but have never been able to hold down a fresh tomato. I don’t know the reason why but they make me gag. I have tried to psych myself up and buckle down and force myself to avail. Read More →
The other day the kids were asking for nachos, not just chips and salsa, for their snack. I try to make a little bit more elaborate snacks during the weekends since I have a little more time to work with.
It was one of those lazy Saturdays where everyone got up late and we were eating breakfast at 11 am. We don’t often get to sleep in like that so it totally throws off our usual schedule. Since breakfast was so late, I decided to have a heavier snack than usual.
It was my little sister’s birthday a full on Chinese food night with stir fry, egg rolls, shrimp fried rice, dumplings, and crab rangoon on the menu. As always, when there is a wide variety of cooked dishes to be made at the same time, the kitchen quickly got very hot, and I got very frustrated.
I could only wrangle one little helper into the kitchen that night, and I had him making the egg rolls. While he was working I made the fried rice, and stir fry. Then I noticed the wonton wrappers sitting on the counter….
The part everybody was looking forward to the most.
It’s a good thing it doesn’t take that long, I thought. I started getting out the ingredients and I went to the fridge to grab the crab last….
I frantically looked through the kitchen for anything I could use to substitute from the crab. For a while I was seriously thinking about using Spam. Luckily I noticed a few cans of Bumble Bee® Prime Fillet® Albacore Tuna with Jalapeños & Olive Oil. My helper was about halfway done with frying the egg rolls, so I grabbed the tuna and started working.
I don’t know if you guys already know this about me, but I can be a super lazy chick. My clothing normally consists of pajama pants, a tank top, and a dirty hoodie. All to be topped off with an extremely messy bun. So, I love food that allows me to be in and out of the kitchen quickly so I can tend to my other duties.
It’s a weird combination, but I am super lazy and super busy at the same time. These scones are very easy to make and not very time consuming, which makes them perfect for me! Read More →
