Sometimes the simplest treats mean the most. Last week for National S’mores Day I decided to finally pull out the recipe I’d been sitting on since 2009 and tackle homemade graham crackers. *
Get the recipe at the link in bio
The s’mores were a hit with the whole family, but I found myself with a container of leftover graham crackers and wanted something else to do with them. Then I remembered the nights spent at grandma’s house when she would slather frosting between 2 grahams and we would happily sit there chatting. I might have upped the ante from the store-bought graham crackers of my childhood, but I’m sure grandma would them just as much.
I love bbq chicken ANYTHING, so when I saw this recipe with peppers and onions from @themagicalslowcooker, I knew I had to try it. Verdict: it didn’t disappoint and it’s definitely going in the weekly rotation. Check out my Stories to see the ‘before’ pic - it only took about 10 minutes to prepare!
I know that a reset of some sorts is in the near future. I don’t know when or for how long, but what I’m doing right now clearly isn’t working for me at the moment. Giving myself some time to think about what’s best for my mental and physical health. Until then, I’m taking it one meal at a time. Dinner: ribeye steak, cast iron brussels with @balancedbites smoky blend & and a homemade spicy lime Whole30compliant mayo, and @traderjoes sauerkraut. 🥩
Hardest decision of the day: with or without ice cream?
We have the sweetest family sponsoring Match Hour at Picha Farm Stand on Thursday. For every melon purchased, The Lundquist Family will buy one for local food shelves. Come pick up some melons while they are in peak season and help stock the food shelves with them too
Is is actually Tuesday if you don’t eat tacos? It might be, but do yourself a favor and eat a taco anyways .
What my Taco Tuesday is all about: seared shrimp, sautéed peppers/onions, @eatwholly guac, purple cabbage (from my mom’s garden ), a twist of lime, and cilantro - all on a @foodforlifebaking sprouted corn tortilla.
True or false: Ordering a blizzard from a retro DQ stand makes it taste better?!
I’m not here to say but the TRUTH is that I live 10 min from the oldest @dairyqueen (started in Minnesota!) and I think that’s pretty cool.
I always wanted to say “like this pic to know how to get this dress for $29.99 and one free cocktail this weekend” (I am sure all the fashion bloggers are rolling their eyes right now) anddddd I finally figure out what to do with that idle hand when taking a pic. Hold a glass of something. What do you think?? Do I pass to become a fashion blogger?
But in all seriousness go to @rebelroomexcelsior this weekend. They are giving ONE FREE COCKTAIL this weekend to celebrate their grand opening month! Your welcome!
P.S. I was sipping I’m Sorry Sapphire - J.Carver gin, campari, lemon, sugar, soda and it was delicious! Picture courtesy of my instagram girlfriend @bethaneclair#jeanneeatsmsp

Check out my BBQ loaf of meat! It turned out smoky and sweet! 🥩#thesmokypoet
The other day I said to myself, “Self, it’s time to smoke an awesome meat loaf on the Trompo King.” And Thank gawd I listen to myself because this BBQ smoked meatloaf turned out amazing.
My meatloaf actually consists of about four pounds of 80/20 ground beef and ground turkey. I then added a few magical ingredients, hand-mixed and then threw into the fridge for a little meat nap. The little meat nap helped to firm up the meat for when I put it onto the Trompo King. For this smoke, I used the smaller 7 inch spike. I placed the meat loaf onto the spike, threw in my ThermoPro meat probe and smoked my meatloaf with oak wood at 250 Fahrenheit until my internal temp hit 145. This took about 1 1/2 hours. I then basted with my Myron Mixon BBQ sauce and continued smoking for about another 45 minutes until my internal temp hit about 160 or so.
The beauty of smoking this on the Trompo King versus in a traditional pan was that I was able to get virtually a nice, bbq crunch around the vast majority of my meat loaf. And I gotta you, this meat loaf wasn’t dry, was perfectly moist and had an awesome smoke ring. Mmm mmm good.
Have you ever smoked a meat loaf before?
You can’t buy happiness, but you can buy local, Izzy’s Ice Cream at Clara’s. This mouthwatering treat is perfect for the hot week ahead

So go try them before they are gone! Link to the recipe for flatbread is on the blog now. #RaveApples#StemiltGrowers#PNWproduce#StemiltFruit
