Fluffy Pakistani Coffee

Fluffy Greek Coffee
Very Fluffy Pakistani Coffee! This was my fav!
This is the handheld frother I used.
Getting all fancy with cream on the bottom. I used the Blentec Blender on the soup setting, for this one.
A Cold One.

Fluffy coffee is all the rage right now. You can even beat it with a hand held egg beater for thirty minutes to achieve a real cool whippy style coffee. It’s not like you don’t have the time right now… 🙃 It can be served hot or cold.

You take two tablespoons of instant coffee (I used Folgers because that all I had on hand) You then throw two Tablespoons of sugar (I used Sugar in the Raw) Lastly, two Tablespoons of water. Hot or cold. Your choice. Then you whip it all up until you have a fun consistency. Dollop a bit of whip cream on top and enjoy!

There are tons of recipes on Pinterest. I’m going to try making it with Espresso tomorrow because I really hate the taste of instant coffee. Lol

Has anyone else ever tried it?

Keep in mind all of this food was in a course of the last week.

I have really been enjoying not eating out. We were eating out almost every day, at least once. What’s more, my Pinterest food boards are finally getting the love they so deserve. Tomorrow will be day seven of my walking routine.

I will include some pictures too.

Here was when I just started up the back hill and looked back to see DH burning trash. My daughter was walking with me and got tired.
It’s like a maze on one part of my hilly walk because of these awful weeds that are spikey. I do not know what they are called, if they look familiar to anyone, please comment.
Either winged ants or maybe termites in a moss pile.

Back in the woods to the creek. No snakes yet!
Pine trees from the top of the hill.

Our next door neighbors are a church, which I have mentioned in the past.
And lastly, our cat that is getting really sick of all of us by now. 🤣

Easy Swedish Meatballs

They came out almost perfect.

I didn’t have corn starch so I used flour for the gravy and it chunked up on me. Hence them not coming out perfect.

Regardless, everyone did enjoy them.

I took two pounds of ground beef. At $319 per pound, it is very frugal.

I eyeballed everything.

I added about a 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs

A couple shakes of 14 Spice seasoning (Walmart)

A couple shakes of Allspice

(This makes them Swedish)

A pinch of nutmeg

Teaspoon each of Minced onion & Minced garlic

1 Egg

1/4 cup of Milk

I Mixed it all up and divided the meat into 27 meatballs.

I Placed them in the freezer for ten minutes

I Heated my skillet with a tablespoon of oil

Fried up the now, cold meatballs.

I placed them in the freezer so they would hold together better while frying them up.

It took about 10minutes to cook.

I then placed them on a plate and added butter, more 14 seasoning and flour to the pan of meat juices and oil.

I think I had the heat too high because the flour became chunky.

I then placed the meatballs and coated them with the gravy mixture.

Browned up so that they have crunch on the outside. (That’s how hubby likes them)

Then I served them over egg noddles.

The egg noodles are only $1 a bag at Dollar General.

Fed all six of us for under $8. A win! win!

Easy Rice Dinner

This is a very easy meal that I made last night for the kids. The plus, they LOVED IT! 
I used my rice maker to make four cups of rice. 
It takes only 25 minutes.

Results: fluffiest white rice ever!

Five cups of water to four cups of dry medium grain white rice. I throw in a little sea salt and a few capfuls of olive oil. Give it a stir, and walk away…

The valve will pop up when it’s done. 
After it’s done I open up a can of beans, (black or pinto) whichever is your kids favorite. 
Mine like both, so I opened both. 

I drain the juice from both cans, and then add them to the cooked rice. I did the same thing with a can of corn and a large can of chicken breast. So simple! And just as easy as going through a fast food joint. 

Although that’s fun sometimes too. 😉
The kids topped it with shredded cheese, and ate till their hearts content. 

My kids have never been very big meat eaters, but they love beans. If your kids like beans, then chances are good that they will enjoy this meal. 

Special K baked Chicken 🍴

I am not sure if this is an actual recipe or not, but I got creative; as I have become addicted to using my crock put for every meal this past year, and I wanted to feel as if I was a more hands-on sorta cook. 😉
Ingredients:

6 boneless chicken breasts

2 eggs

2 cups of crushed Special K cereal 

Salt,pepper & seasonings of your choice

(I used Adobo and Italian seasoning)

1/2 cup of Parmesan Cheese

1 cup of Ranch salad dressing (pre-made)
I threw everything in a large bowl, mixed it up, and then coated/patted it onto each chicken breast.

I used stoneware so I didn’t need to spray the pan, as it is well seasoned.

 I baked in a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.

I served it with potatos and green beans.

Super Easy, with little clean up. 😉

Leftovers

Wednesday leftovers:
Left over cooked rice

Some veggies from the garden

•1/2 onion

•1/2 green pepper

•1 Zucinni 

One pound of ground beef

I sautéed the veggies in butter, garlic, salt and pepper.

I ground the burger up in a pot, then threw in the leftover rice and veggies in it.

Super Easy! 

It served 6.

Homemade Cold Stone ice-cream

We went to Cold Stone Creamery for date night a few weeks ago. Two sundaes, $14!
I came home and googled homemade Cold Stone Creamery icecream,  which took me straight to YouTube.
As long as you have a Pampered Chef stoneware, or some other type of stoneware, you can make this too. 
I used my Pampered Chef cookie sheet.

I placed it in the freezer for ten minutes, then took it out and placed a healthy scoop of ice cream on it. Then I added some fixings. 

For mine I added a few vanilla wafers and a banana. 

Then using my Papered Chef slicer  I began to cut the wafers and banana into the ice cream. 

Just a few minutes later….wa’la!

Banana Pudding Cold stone ice cream. 

Cost: .50 per serving.


I made the kids some chocolate,peanut butter, marshmallow, cookie ones.

It looked like this after it was mixed.

I made dh’s a ‘little bit of everything’  

Homestyle Vanilla Ice cream, gram crackers, Carmel, walnuts, and fudge. Mmm!

The finished sundae!

The key is to have the stoneware very cold. 

This was a much cheaper option then having icecream sundaes out. It was also a lot of fun to make. 

I definitely will be making these again. 

Maybe once a month for movie night. 😉
