108. French bread pizza

leave a comment »

Recipe source: Rachael Ray magazine

Not your traditional red-sauce pizza, these pizzas have ham, Gruyere (or Swiss) and thyme on top of a honey mustard sauce. Pop them in the oven on a yummy slice of French bread, and you have a pretty good meal.

I served these with a salad and honey mustard dressing – the same salad in the recipe.

91. scalloped ham and potatoes

leave a comment »

Recipe source: my memory, according to what I thought BP’s mom told me

This wasn’t even worth a photo.

Neither BP nor I had made this before, and I didn’t write down the instructions when his mom gave them to me. The result: bad.

This was so bad that I didn’t even save the leftovers for lunch.

58. baked ham sandwiches

leave a comment »

Recipe source: Taste of Home

A couple of weeks ago, I made up six of these sandwiches, wrapped them in foil and popped them in the freezer.

They make a really good, easy meal for those nights when you don’t have time or energy to cook.

The only drawback was that the buns came out of the oven slightly crispier than BP and I would have preferred. There was a little “crumb spray” happening with each bite.

However, overall, it’s a good sandwich to have ready when you need them.

56. hamburgers with herb butter and baked sweet potato sticks

leave a comment »

Recipe source: How to Grill by Steven Raichlen, for the burgers, and, for the sweet potato sticks

BP is my grill guy, and the burgers were his project. He did a great job. They had good flavor, and they were done just perfect. The slice of pancetta and white cheddar cheese really finished it off well. Nice job, BP.

The baked sweet potato sticks were good (although, I love almost anything with sweet potatoes), but I could have left them in the oven longer so they would have been crispier. However, we had guests for supper and I didn’t want to keep them waiting.

I should mention that my mom also contributed to this meal. (She was one of the supper guests.) BP loves her scalloped pineapple, and he requested it when she asked if she could bring anything. It was especially delicious this time, and we all enjoyed that.

53. homemade pizza

Recipe source for dough: Whipped

BP and I love pizza. Seriously.

However, I prefer to not eat the fast-food delivery variety because I know it’s not good for us.

I tried this dough recipe for the first time, and despite the fact that I think my yeast water was too hot (which kills the yeast and prevents it from rising after the kneading process), it was still tasty. I’ll be trying this recipe again with cooler water and the hopes that it will rise like it is supposed to!

On top of our crust, we added traditional pizza sauce, ham, banana peppers and mozzarella.
