Litehouse Instantly Fresh Salad Herb Blend

On my most recent venture to my favorite green grocery, I was poking around and saw this.

Litehouse Instantly Fresh Salad Herb Blend

Mrs. Dear Friend buys this brand of herb blends, but I had never tried it before, so I figured why not.

I was thinking as I was driving home that this would be terrific with eggs; let’s try this in an Omelette.

I’ve had these cool Norpro Silicone 4” Egg Rings for some time now, but haven’t used them until now.

Wouldn’t it be great to have some Green Eggs and Ham Sandwiches?

This is the simplest breakfast to make.  I scrambled 2 eggs in a cup and stirred in about a teaspoon (give or take) of the Salad Herb Blend.  Heat a non-stick pan over medium-low.  I melted some Butter into the rings and made sure that they were well greased all along the insides.  Next, pour the egg mixture into the ring and allow to set-up; remove the ring and flip the Omelette over to finish cooking.

I toasted an English muffin, topped it with some shredded cheese to melt faster; added some fried Ham slices and then lastly our perfectly round Omelette.

MMM, Enjoy!

Miners Mix Wholly Chipotle Seasoning & Rub

I was introduced to Miners Mix brand a coupla years back by some fellow bloggers, Patrons of the Pit.  They have been utilizing several of the Miners Mix seasonings and rubs.

I had found the Original XXX-Garlic Seasoning & Rub back when I was visiting my Mother in California.

This stuff is good on/in anything that you would use granulated or powdered Garlic, and I use a lot of Garlic!

Recently, The Ole’ Miner himself contacted me and asked if they could send me a box, SURE!

One of the bottles in my box was Wholly Chipotle Seasoning & Rub.  I took a small taste of it on my finger, boy howdy, that’s got some heat to it, but in a nice way.  So, what to do, how shall we apply this?  Let’s grill up some boneless-skinless Chicken Thighs for Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas.

I minced up the grilled yardbird, along with some Hatch Green Chiles; heated that up in a pot with some Hatch Green Chile Enchilada Sauce for the filling.

Next, I heated some flour tortillas, filled and then topped them with more chiles, sauce and shredded cheese, popped the whole plate under the broiler to a melty GBD and it’s time for dinner.

Chipotle & Green Chile Chicken Enchiladas.

I made just a bit too much chicken, so do you do with that?

Chipotle Chicken Salad for lunch tomorrow, that’s what!

I had to taste it to make sure it was ok, dontcha know.  I added a small pinch more of the Wholly Chipotle to the mayo for more of a kick, MMM!

58 years ago today, the Aloha State was admitted to the Union, becoming the 50th State.

I truly hope that someday, if you haven’t already, you’ll make your way to my place of birth and enjoy everything about it.  It’s people and their hospitality, nature’s beauty at its finest, the unique, multi-ethnic, diverse cultural blend and of course THE FOOD!

Ua mau ke ea o ka aina i ka pono

The life of the land is perpetuated in righteousness

KAF’s Herb and Garlic Bubble Loaf

I got a King Arthur Flour Catalog a few weeks back, and on the cover was this LUSCIOUS looking loaf of bread, they called it a “tear & share”.
For the first time in our entire marriage, my husband actually read this food magazine (I get several) and brought it over to me.

DH: Look at this! Can you make this for us? This looks really good, I love homemade bread!
Me: Sure! It does look good, doesn’t it!

I gathered all of the ingredients, re-read the recipe; I even did TWO “live chats” with KAF’s Baker’s Hotline with a few follow questions that weren’t clear to me.
I followed the recipe as well as the helpful information that I received on the chat line… 5 hours later (I took my time and didn’t rush the process) we sat down a dinner to what looked and smelled heavenly!

The Bubble Loaf was cracker-like on one side and the inside was very doughy and unappealing.

That goodness the Chicken Cacciatore over Rigatoni was outstanding.

After everything was cleaned up for the evening, my husband gives me a big hug and says, “Well, ok that was a no-go, what new recipe are we going to try next?”
AWW! He’s such a love!
