What’s for dinner? Crispy Fish Tacos with Southwest Ranch Slaw

What's for dinner? Crispy Fish Tacos with Southwest Ranch Slaw (20 minute meal!) - Sarcastic Cooking

If you wanted a real life glimpse into my weekly dinner repertoire, this dish is it! I seriously set this picture up, took the photo on this box, then moved the plates from the box to the table, and then moved the tacos from the plate to my face. That is real life, folks.

So many times growing up, we lived off fish sticks on those Lenten Fridays. When I tell Mike that we are having fish sticks for dinner, he groans. I even tried to give Andy a fish stick all slathered up in beautiful tartar sauce. I thought I was smarter than him because he loves any kind of sauce or sour cream or yogurt on anything. Alas, the kid took a bite of the fish stick, ate the breading off, and then spit out the fish. [Read more…]

Do you guys believe in past lives? Reincarnation? That whole shebang? Kind of deep for a Tuesday morning, eh? Don’t worry. This isn’t some religious rant or introspective piece. I know this space is a light hearted food blog, duh!

I have given it a lot of thought, and if I get to choose what I come back as, I have decided I am coming back as a dad. Yep, throwing in in the towel as a mom and living the good dad life. Moms out there, don’t you agree? [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!

Hey! All you adults out there! Do you budget? No, it isn’t some new-fangled slang term that means something weird or sexual. It is just a straight up budget, a spending plan, so to speak. Since the age of 23, give or take five years, I have had my fair share of budgeted living and Excel spreadsheets shoved in my face about what I earn and how I spend.

Spoiler alert: One of those is way higher than the other one, and it isn’t my income. [Read more…]

I don’t know if I have maybe led on to this before, but I am really not a chicken kind of girl. I am a literal chicken, yes. You can ask my brothers about that one! When we were kids, my younger brothers both jumped off the top of the monkey bars one afternoon. I stood up there until dinner time scared out of my mind but convinced that I was going to jump. I did it finally as my mom was calling us in for dinner. My brothers were far enough away so, lucky for me, they couldn’t see my chicken tears and my flailing fall looked like a jump to them. But yeah, chicken through and through. [Read more…]
