Just Another Day in My LOL (lull) Life | Food

I’ve been making favorites that my family likes a LOT. Dishes I’ve already posted. So…that’s what’s going on when no “new” posts. You know that doesn’t mean we’re not eating some delicious food

And of course antipasto [with foods like cured meats, OLIVES (what i craved when pregnant), peperoncini, anchovies, artichoke hearts, various CHEESES, pickled meats, and vegetables in oil or vinegar, etc., etc…], cheese plates and/or charcuterie boards. I have ALWAYS had good cheese and charcuterie boards set out for family (& friends/neighbors…whoever’s around). I don’t know why other than the simple yet so-true reason that they’re DAMN DELICIOUS!  I didn’t grow up with it around or see it around; it’s just what & how I wanted to eat. And everyone around really liked it too. That’s what my kids grew up with. Of course for them (& since with grandkids) I could throw together simpler versions, with ritz, club, chicken-in-a-basket, triscuits & vegetable crackers, they all love cheese, pickles, mild peppers, ham &/or ‘ring’ bologna (lol, Koegels LOVE that stuff). And pepperoni.  They’re easy. BUT…they do have a more expanded palates than kids did back when I was little….

(that’s a long time ago lol)

With Breakfasts like Burritos with Chorizo Egg & Potatoes (cheese 😀 )

Sometimes I layer the ingredients on tortilla & others times I mix it all together.  My granddaughter likes to use tortilla to pick up the mixture.

And with the often present charcuterie and cheese boards & the like (bruschetta etc..)…we end up not so hungry after all ♡ Sometimes that’s enough. It wasn’t so much on the farm when my kids were growing up…we ate! I cooked & baked & canned…gardened A LOT! Since living in Arizona, especially being between Queen Creek Olive Mill, Schnepfs Farm/Orchards & Dolce Vita Italian Grocer…it’s been quite fulfilling!
