Herbs Make Me Happy

We recently moved and I can now grow herbs again. They just didn’t seem to grow well in the other places we have lived recently. I am growing chives, oregano, and lemon thyme in a pot on the patio and they are doing just fine. I snip pieces off and add them to baked potatoes,…

Walkthroughs

I have noticed that there seems to be less and less walkthroughs in stores. I remember when I was a kid, and later when I worked in game stores, that there were a good amount of walkthroughs. In fact they had their own section, which was decent in size. Even as I worked in game…

Pancake Improvement

Sometimes you can cook an item and it is great every time but sometimes you can cook an item and it’s not. I had this problem with pancakes. The ones that I made were heavy and gloppy and sometimes not even cooked in the middle. There are some good mixes out there so I didn’t…

Halloween Cookie House

You know how at Christmas time, people make Christmas villages and ginger bread houses? Well I started doing that at Halloween, but just a Halloween village and not a gingerbread house. This year I didn’t set up my Halloween village (it’s a small one currently) because I still haven’t unpacked it. I did make a…

Spice Club Recipe: Sausage Potato Kale Soup

Now that we have moved and (mostly) unpacked, I thought I would catch up on my spice club recipes. So every Friday I make one of the recipes using the spices that came with the recipe card. The first time I make the recipe I usually follow it exactly. Then after I have finished eating…

Video Games as Incentives

I think video games are great with a lot of variety. They’re fun, relaxing, entertaining, educational, exhausting, and more. Sometimes I use them as incentives to get things done. There are many different things that playing time can be used as a reward. One thing is school. School includes three different areas: homework, projects, studying….

Wellness

H and I have been a little under the weather.  We have been indisposed, not feeling well, ill, run down, less than fabulous, and a little out of sorts. Yes, all of the above. I’m not sure what it is but it just seems to linger.  Just when I think maybe I should go to…

Airfryer

In the summer I like to eat a lot of snack type foods: fries, nuggets, corndogs, etc. I use to cook them in a deep fryer, but this summer we bought an airfryer. I haven’t experimented with the airfryer as much as I have wanted to this summer, but I have tested a few things….

Meatloaf

I love meatloaf but sometimes when I make it, the texture is a little gummy which I don’t love. Whenever I make turkey burgers I mix carrots into the meat to make it moist so I wondered if I could do this with meatloaf. I made a turkey meatloaf and added kale, mushrooms, and carrots….

August PlayStation Plus Games

I have a lot of backlog games that I haven’t gotten around to playing and each month I get more with my Playstation Plus membership. I have decided that I would start writing a blog post each month about one or two of the Playstation Plus games.  This month I am playing Just Cause 3…

Twitter/YouTube

We just made a twitter account @Games_and_Grub and a YouTube channel Games and Grub. They are both fairly new. The twitter will mainly comprise of links to blog posts as well as status updates (like if there will be a delay in posting and such) while the YouTube will have videos made for posts.  Eventually I…

Happy Tostados

Moving is so horrible. It’s not just the expense, organizing, packing, logistics, and manual labor in 100 + degree weather that I am talking about. It’s the disruption of everyday life. Where is my hairbrush? Have you seen my keys? What box are the lunch bowls packed in? Did we pay that last electric bill?…
