Who knew using marinade could make a thick steak 🥩 so tender…. that you could tear it with your hands… like a piece of paper!
Just follow the instructions, and marinade in your refrigerator overnight…
I used Grill Mates MESQUITE marinade mix!
I took it out, and set on the stove about an hour before I cooked it… adding other seasonings, and allowing it to get to room temperature.
Feel free to add your favorite seasonings 🧂 to the meat… but here’s what I used:
Lawry’s Seasoned salt, pepper, garlic salt, pepper.
I cooked this steak on the stove with olive oil. After it was cooked on both sides… I added in the sauté mix… and cut up a bit of fresh onion… with a couple of dashes of soy sauce…… and a little butter
I sautéed the mushrooms in a pat of butter…with fried French onions, a couple of spoons fulls of fresh crushed garlic, a dash of pepper, rosemary & seas salt seasonings…
After all the ingredients simmered together…. I arranged it on a plate…. with a salad of: broccoli, bacon, and cranberries… and it was delicious!
This is a good ole southern favorite! I let this catfish marinade in a lemon pepper liquid marinade over night.
When the oil was hot enough… I fried each filet until golden on each side… and flipped them over again..to cook until the filets are completely done! ✅
When I was ready to fry it.. I put the oil in a frying pan🍳 Let it heat up… while I seasoned the fish filets… with salt, and a bit of garlic pepper.
Next…. I got another frying pan… with about a half cup of vegetable oil. I let the fries reach room temperature… and added them very carefully to the hot oil. When they were golden brown… I put them to a lined dish with paper towels and let them drain.

Any salt and vinegar potato chip fans around???
Using Vinegar also helps cut the grease… and it’s an added health/digestion benefit…🙌🏽✨
I plate these finished pairings… pull out the hot sauce… and DIG IN!!!! 🍴
Anybody like home cooked casseroles???? Here is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE!!!!
This is so wonderful when it’s served hot. It’s filling, and flavorful. There’s a little story to go along with how I learned about this dish…
I was the weekend Anchor and TV News Reporter at WJBF-TV in Augusta, Georgia.
After a long day of working in the newsroom… I would drive home 🏡 tired from a busy day.
A newly wed couple lived in the apartment beneath me… and would often be out walking… when I drove home into my parking space. We would often exchange pleasantries… and enjoy friendly conversation.
On one particular night… my new friends Valerie and Patrick came out of their place smiling and said: “Are you hungry?!” We just finished making dinner…
The dinner that evening was this Broccoli 🥦 and
BChicken 🍗 Casserole
“Why don’t you come in and join us!” I was so delighted!!! 🙌🏽✨How nice for themto invite me to !!!!!dinner!
Oooh Val !!!! This is sooo GOOD!!!! This Casserole is AMAZING
How do you make this??? I’m definitely making this again!!!
I remember her hazel eyes lighting up… and how genuine and animated she was… explaining the entire process of making this dish!
I have never forgotten that night..and their gracious hospitality …
I keep in contact with Val on social media to this very day! 😃This reeasy recipe… All you need to do is mix everything together… add to a baking pan… and pop it in the oven!
Ok… here’s what you need… 2-4 chicken breasts… depending on how big you want casserole..
One can of cream of mushroom soup ( for two chicken breasts), and two cans for four breasts.
One or two cups of cooked white/ jasmine rice… ( As much…or as little as you want to include your dish.)
Cut up chicken into chunks, Pre-cook fresh broccoli 🥦 crowns, (1- or two full crowns… just enough to add a nice amount of this veggie to appear visible in the dish. Add in pre-cooked white rice, ( I prefer Jasmine Rice🍚) and then mix in can(s) cream of mushroom soup…with a couple of handfuls of fried French onions… salt, pepper, garlic powder, seasoned salt flavor to taste..(cut up more fresh mushrooms if you desire..)
Mix EVERYTHING together with several generous dashes of soy sauce.
One all the ingredients are blended together put it in baking dish/pan and add more French Onions to the top of casserole. Bake in oven at 350 degrees
Bake for about 25-30 minutes, ( until everything looks like it’s cooked well.)
Remove casserole from oven, and add generous amounts of shredded cheese on top. Put back in oven… and continue baking for 5-7 minutes… or until cheese has melted.
Let casserole cool a bit… and enjoy!!!! This is one of those all in one meals… that’s better the next day… and the day after that! These Casseroles also freeze well in aluminum pans. You can store in freezer… pop it out, and place in oven until done.
It will taste just like you made it only minutes before!!! Pure Satisfaction for a hearty, and home cooked meal! 🍽
This next entree is the snack of all snacks!!!!
This crunchy option is also a nice answer for a lunch or dinner….
I’ve Enjoyed these DAY ☀️ and NIGHT! 🌙
Claps Hands! Okkkk…. here’s what you need:
Nacho Chips… ( I use Tostitos… with a hint of lime! ) The flavor on the chips is incredible with all the other good stuff piled on top!!!
You can use whatever kind of pre-seasoned/ pre-cooked ground meat that you like:
Ground Beef, Turkey, Italian Sausage, or Chicken!
Cut up tomatoes chunks/ or diced tomatoes… add them on top of ground meat of choice, with Salsa… then add shredded lettuce, jalapeños, (black olives… if you like.), and sprinkle cheese on top… ( or… pre-melted cheddar or American cheese.)
This is a very colorful entree, and tasty as well… share with family/ friends or serve for a party, movie night, game night… or the GAME of all games…. The Super Bowl!!!!
This is a great breakfast or brunch option….
And 2 eggs, it’s bacon, spinach, ham, onion, mushrooms, crushed garlic, cheese, tomatoes, peppers, sausage: ‼️NO‼️
Whelp! Those are all the ingredients that you need…
Take two… or three eggs 🥚 if you like… add some milk, soy sauce, seasonings of your choice… I use seasoned salt, pepper, rosemary, garlic herb special blend.
⭐️ If you notice… I use all the same ingredients in all these quick and easy dishes…
Whisk milk and soy sauce with eggs and add all the other fixings…
Add vegetable oil to omelette pan.. ( just 2 or 3 spoonfuls) turn heat to medium… once the oil is hot… pour in all the mixed ingredients…
One everything cooks together… and firms up… test how well cooked, and solid your omelette is…
Oh! As far as peppers are concerned… I use jalapeños, & banana peppers. Fresh tomato chunks are good… but sun dried tomatoes also taste delightful! ( your choice!)
Check all sides… and underneath omelette to make sure its completely cooked…and in one big solid form…
Now get ready to FLIP IT!!!
Bring both sides together to make the whole omelette, a thick half..
On the omelette half… add shredded cheddar cheese…
Keep on heat… until the cheese is completely melted. Then… scoop up with your spatula… put it on a plate.. and get ready for that first bite! Mmmmm….. enhance this experience by adding salsa… or hot sauce!
You got all the protein and veggies you need in one delectable serving!!!!
