I'm not a very big fan of ice cream, but I do enjoy pudding.  So instead of a brownie fudge sundae, I opted for pudding cups.

I love smoked oysters and oyster stew however, I have never had them fried.  I wanted to make a Cajun dish for Mardi Gras but did not have a lot of time this year.  So after searching the net, this was about the easiest thing I could come up with for Mardi Gras.  I even picked up these cute Mardi Gras plates for $1 this morning.

I love Panda Express, and my favorite dish to get from them is the orange chicken with a side of "chow mein".  In my opinion what they call chow mein is actually lo mein.  The chow mein that I make is a wetter dish with more vegetables and served over crispy noodles.  Oh call it what you may, this "chow mein" copycat recipe was so close to the real thing, except the noodles.  I know that is a big part of the dish but the vegetable to noodle ratio was correct and the flavor was right on.  I thought the noodles were too soft and soggy.

I first had pierogies about 10 years ago when my mother-in-law made them.  Her family drizzled browned butter over them before serving.  I was not really fond of the browned butter, I thought they would be better with white gravy over them.  I guess I've been living in the Midwest for too long.  These are pierogies without all the work.  The onions are a must if you are an onion fan.

One of my favorite appetizers when watching a sporting event or just hanging out with friends is little sausages saturated in bbq sauce on a cracker with a slice of cheese.  These appetizers cover all the flavors of that favorite snack and the flaky crescent roll dough beats the heck out of a plain cracker any day.

I always serve mashed potatoes with meatloaf so why not put them together.  The sweet sauce under the potatoes compliments the cheese and drizzle on top.  I don't mean to brag but my meatloaf is the bomb!

I love egg salad and eat it at least twice a month.  When you get tired of the same old lunch meat and cheese sandwich, whip up a batch of this.  If you are watching your carbs, serve this on a bed of lettuce instead of toast.
