A Dinner Request

Sometimes, you just want something simple, tasty, and nostalgic for dinner.

DH had made what I thought at first was an odd request for supper, “Let’s have Mac and Cheese with Hot Dogs one night”.

Okay!

I made a little more grown-up version of a School Lunch favorite with Trader Joe’s Hatch Chile Mac & Cheese, along with a lower sodium, tastier Hot Dog, cut up and pan-fried-crispy.  I thought that Peas & Carrots would really throw it all into the kiddo range, dont’cha think?

Another New Pot?

YUP !!

I have been ogling this pot for a long time now, and a gal on one of the Food Forums that I participate in had posted that she found this at a bargain-basement price.

I ordered this Tramontina 3.5-Quart Enameled Cast-Iron Round Dutch Oven from Walmart.com for $35.97.  Now, I had seen this same sized pot in the store for $25.00 but NOT in this gorgeous red.

I’m not sure what I’ll cook first in this beauty as yet, but it’ll look pretty, that’s for sure.
