Maybe not so much Frank, but I’m having a torrid love affair with the man’s hot sauce. (Sorry Mike!) Doesn’t matter the style or flavor – I LOVE IT!
Frank’s Flavor of the day: Buffalo!!
Sunday our groceries were quickly dwindling, so I made the most appetizing breakfast I could scrounge up – an egg sammich:Mike and I ran a few errands, and took another 6.5 mile walk, and by the time we got home – I was ravenous, but only had VERY random groceries to try and create lunch with.
I put my kindergarten “thinking cap” on – and came up with a doozie!
Smashed chickpea salad:I took 1 serving of chickpeas, chopped up a red onion, and added about 1.5 tbsp of light ranch dressing – AND THEN….
….put a slice of swiss cheese on top, microwaved it for 30 seconds so it got all melty, and topped the cheese with Frank’s BUFFALO, and dried chives:HOLY MOLY! This thing was elevenity billion times better than I could have ever imagined! I LOVED IT! I’ve already thought of about 15 changes/substitutions I could make just to change it up – it was so easy, so good, AND SO QUICK!
I had my open faced sammich with a side salad:That had:
- banana peppers
- red bell peppers
- wasabi peas
FANTASTIC “whipped up” lunch!!
My brother was home again from OSU (woot woot! GO BUCKS!), so my mom had all of us over for dinner, as well as my Grandparents!
She had quite the spread of appetizers to pick at while my Dad was grilling!
Blackberries and raspberries:Super tart, but super delicious!
New hummus! (I get WAY too excited for new hummus flavors!)
This one was “Spicy Cilantro“:Review: It had a similar (although slightly chalkier) taste to Sabra – and the taste wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t my favorite. Personally, I didn’t find the “spicy” at all (although Mom and Timmy said they tasted the kick), and cilantro can be a little overwhelming for my taste buds when it comes in large quantities. I don’t think I’d ever buy this flavor for myself, but it was nice to “taste test” at my Mom!
More hummus – Tribe Sweet Roasted Red Pepper:I’ve always loved this one – you CAN’T go wrong with Roasted Red Pepper hummus!
The grill master (aka – Dad) asked to not be photographed, but did still want to show off his handi-work:As well as his secret recipe for making the best grilled chicken I’ve ever tasted. Are you ready?!?!It’s Garlic Powder, Salt, and Pepper. I know that might seem easy – but my Dad always manages to put on just the right amount to make it absolutely fabulous!!
Helped myself to some free DC while I was waiting to be served dinner. Don’t ya just love going back to your parents house for meals? The final presentation:AMAZING! The chicken totally knocked my socks off – as usual, and I drizzled a WHOLE LOTTA Frank’s Buffalo on my potato. The beans ended up going in the garbage, they tasted horrible and were so wet and squishy. (Sorry Momma – wasn’t you, was the weird frozen bag they came from). A perfect end to a very busy weekend!
