Flashback and Foodie Friday ~In the Bag
For this Friday's Flashback I'm flashing WAY back to the 80's when I was in high school and monogrammed purses and bags and sweaters and ties and sheets and just about anything you can imagine monogrammed was popular. It was the preppy craze :-)
I was far from born into a preppy family so my monograms were far and few between but I did have a monogrammed purse that I loved. I've been seeing a lot of monogrammed stuff lately and having been thinking of buying something...anything with my monogram on it. Enter the nice people at Simply-Bags! They have a fabulous assortment of Totes that they will monogram for you so you can be back in retro style :-) They were kind enough to send this huge tote to me...big enough for a baguette and tons of veggies from the farmer's market. And BONUS....I got me a monogram :-)
I love it! There are a few more bags of theirs that I'd love to have...this one is a favorite.
Go check em out :-)
I have one more flashback this week...also known as leftovers! Some of you might cringe, but I have a hard time throwing food out so I like to save or freeze my leftovers for future easy meals. Earlier in the week we had barbecue beef (was supposed to be pork, but beef was in my freezer!) on buns. It looked something like or maybe EXACTLY like this...
Last night it looked like this
Which also brings me back to the 80's when I used to eat these BBQ beef stuffed baked potatoes at a restaurant called Luther's BBQ..now known as Outlaws, in the town where I grew up. Never mind the ones I ate more recently at Bodacious BBQ in Bossier City, La. They are SO good...trust me.
My recipe for the BBQ Beef is pretty simple. Put a seasoned (Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning, garlic salt, & onion powder) roast (pork or beef) in a crockpot, cover with your favorite BBQ sauce, a big squirt or two of ketchup, a splash of coca cola and some honey and cook down all day on low. Remove roast and shred with a fork then return to crockpot and cook for 20-30 more minutes. Done. Serve on buns or on baked potatoes with cheese, sour cream, bacon and chives as your toppings.
