My son is responsible for cooking one night a week. Mostly he orders out, but he does occasionally cook. He made his own version of Chicken A La King.

Just Make Your Own Trail Mix
One day I had bought trail mix at the grocery store, and my husband asked why when I could just make my own. It is mostly just nuts, raisins, and M&M's.
So I started making my own.
By making your trail mix, you can edit what you want in it. I added mixed nuts and cashews, along with some raisins and M&M's. There are other mix-ins I do like to add. I did add pretzels, burnt peanuts, and sesame sticks. Burnt peanuts have a tasty hard candy coating around the peanut. Sesame sticks have a slight soy sauce take to them that I like. I think I am going to stop adding pretzels. They seem not to mix in too well with the size. The last batch of pretzels I added had a garlic flavor to it and I did not like how it went with the other flavors.
So that is my trail mix. I usually eat this as a meal at lunch if I don't have anything else planned. I do have to be careful not to go crazy with this because I am sure there are a lot of calories in this. So next time, just make your own trail mix to suit your needs.

- I used a cookie scoop I had placed on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper or a silicone mat ( or a greased cookie sheet). You will have to flatten each cookie to about 1 inch thick. They won't raise or spread much I had smaller cookies, so I baked them about 10 minutes, or until the ends are brown. Let them rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes.

Food From Our Carnival Cruise
We got back from a cruise to Mexico and I thought I would share the food we had on our vacation. We drove to our port of call, so at our first rest stop for the night, we had Italian food. The restaurant was connected to a gas station, so not a high-end place, but the food was good.

Banana Berry Smoothie Bowl
I have frozen bananas, I have frozen mixed berries, let's add in some healthy stuff like flax seed, and finally some peanut butter for protein.
We may add in some chocolate for good measure. I usually make nice cream with frozen bananas and peanut butter (Yum!). I occasionally add chocolate. I added other stuff this time for a smoothie bowl.
I added it to a bowl, it would have looked prettier if I had fresh berries, but the chocolate chips did give it a nice touch. I liked it. Chocolate was the predominating flavor. I was impressed with what I had produced.

Tasty Eats Christmas Edition
I really have been neglecting this blog, my last post was from Thanksgiving. Thank God that my husband is getting better and was able to cook for Christmas. First up are the sweet treats I made, toffee squares and chocolate-covered peanuts. Both covered is chopped walnuts.
Jello cookie recipe I have done before.
I made French toast Christmas Eve using Brioche bread from Trader joes. My stepson made a tasty ham dinner on Christmas Eve. I, unfortunately, did not get a photo.

Cooking My First Thanksgiving Meal
Yesterday, I cooked a Thanksgiving meal for the first time (at least s far as I could remember). Usually, my husband does the cooking, but he just had back surgery and is unable to cook.
I did not make turkey, I did ham. Along with the ham, I made green bean casserole, scalloped potatoes, cornbread, and Stove Top stuffing.
For lunch, I made up some brown and serve rolls to use as sliders for the turkey lunch meat, cheese, and a pickle.
My husband is still in a rehab facility recovering from back surgery, I did get to spring him for the day. He did enjoy his time with the family and everyone enjoyed the food.
I did make a video about my Thanksgiving experience, so I do hope you get a chance to check it out:
