In this holiday season, it’s easy to spend a lot of time with family and friends. So I spent the weekend with my super-awesome sister and her adorable family. Her husband, Big E requested I write a post on them. So here it is!
Over at Big E’s they’ve done a lot of work to teach me about food. We have them to thank for my love of alcohol, too. Big E has loved to cook since the first day I met him and he made me a fabulous steak dinner. (Six years later and I still remember it.)
Well, this weekend they treated me to some delicious chili. It simmered for about three hours in the crock-pot and was full of flavor. The recipe calls for hamburger and sausage which blend really well with the spicy tomato sauce. I also saw some beer go into the pot and it was delicious.
Oh we also had some delicious margaritas. These guys are so good they even have margarita salt in their cupboards. Plus, they’re more than happy to cut the alcohol content for the light-weights in the room.
Let’s see what other yummy goodness did we have? Oh yeah, lemon spaghetti and salmon. I’ll post the recipe for lemon spaghetti shortly. It’s very good, it’s a nice taste of summer in the middle of a snowstorm. I don’t have the recipe for the salmon or the sauce that goes with, but I promise they were very good. The salmon was flaky and moist while the sauce added a nice kick of flavor.
Well, that sums up my weekend at Big E’s. And with a promise of financial backing they might open up a restaurant so everyone can enjoy their hospitality and excellent food.
