Open-Faced Heirloom Tomato and Whipped Feta Breakfast Sandwiches

Open-faced Heirloom Tomato and Whipped Feta Breakfast Sandwiches | Sarcastic Cooking

I swear to the Lord, I am so done with summer. I got my fruit fill. I kind of got my heirloom tomato fill. (See last week’s post for the story behind that). I am ready for a gradual decline into the seventies, sixties, and then (Gasp) the fifties. I am ready for layers and not sweating my pregnant belly off every single time I step outside.

I will probably live to regret this statement once I am trapped indoors with ten inches of snow on the ground, a newborn, a two year old, and a dog staring at me wondering what we are going to do next. Until then, I shall rant on. [Read more…]

What’s for Dinner? Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwiches

Slow Cooker BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich | Sarcastic Cooking

Women be crazy! That’s what I would say if I were going to approach this blog post like a stand-up comedian, be it a not so good stand-up comedian. But yeah, women be crazy! And when I say women, I am clearly speaking of myself here.

Why am I so crazy? Well, it all went down over the weekend. I had been looking forward to this little thing called the heirloom tomato festival happening at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I added it to our Google calendar (much to Mike’s chagrin). I had been seeing a lot of pictures of these beautiful, ripe, and multicolored tomatoes all over my social media feed and I was getting sooo amped up! Yes, I know that in itself sounds crazy already but lay off me I am a food blogger/lover/hungry pregnant lady. [Read more…]

I am at a loss here. This weather is crushing my soul. In the short span of a day, it went from a balmy 70 degrees to a chilly 30 degrees. That means Andy, Weezer, and I were pretty much outside for an entire day and then back to shut ins the next. Do you know who doesn’t understand that you cannot play outside for an entire day when it is kind of chilly like that? I get it. Even Weezer gets it. But, Andy, uh uh. Can’t tell him nuthin!

Chicken and Mushroom Meatball Subs

I am on a tight grocery budget. I normally do grocery shopping for two weeks at a time, aka the Friday of payday. I feel like a lot of people are on this kind of a grocery shopping schedule. I, of course, make random Target or Jewel runs if we are in desperate need of a staple during what I like to call “lean week.”

Lean week is a sad week in our house. I feel like Kristen Wiig in Bridesmaids: “Help me, I’m poor.” Most of the fresh produce has dwindled and I have to make dinner from random things and condiments that otherwise may not fit together. [Read more…]

California Vegetable Sandwich

California Veggie Sandwich | Sarcastic Cooking

I feel bad even calling this a recipe. It is more of an artistic representation of sandwich ingredients. You know, because they call Subway workers “Sandwich Artists.” If Subway workers can be artists, why can’t I?

In high school, back in the dark ages of my existence, aka the vegetarian years, my Mom would make me a vegetable sandwich every single day that rivaled the likes of any sandwich artists’ creation. [Read more…]
