Lil’ Man likes to pretend he doesn’t like potatoes and it is damn annoying so I pulled a fast one on him. I made breakfast burritos for dinner tonight and, of course, diced potatoes were part of the burrito guts.
Halfway through his burrito he notices the diced potato and says, “Daddy, what is that cube thing in there?”
The Hotness and I like to support the local economy whenever we can and one way we like to do that is we purchase beef directly from a local farmer. The gentleman we use raises his cows in the county we live in and uses a butcher from our county as well so that is super awesome.
Little Man and I went to pick up the meat armed with our coolers and a butt load of excitement. He was way too excited to meet the farmer and after asking a few questions about the farm he started shaking and jumping and yelled, “I CAN’T BELIEVE I GOT TO MEET A REAL, LIVE COWBOY!”.
Do you ever find yourself standing in front of the fridge or pantry looking for something to eat? Well, The Modern Man knows just what you need to stuff in your hole.
Wrap a sheet tray in aluminum foil to make cleanup about as easy as one of those girls you used to know.
I like to toast my nachos on 375 degrees because that’s just how I roll.
Drop some of your favorite tortilla chips down. I prefer the Scoops as they hold more goodies and whatnot.
Once the chips are down you need to put the toppings on. If you don’t have any meaty leftovers in the fridge don’t be shy about opening a can of chicken. Leftover pulled pork, steak, and chicken are some of my favorites, though. Don’t be shy about putting some corn, beans, onions, etc. anything you want to put on there.
You need to strain the water off any canned toppings you want to use for your nachos or else they’ll get soggy and let’s be honest, nobody likes a limp chip.
Preheat your meat! I toss the canned chicken in the microwave for 30 seconds otherwise it doesn’t get hot enough during the time it is in the oven.
Slap your toppings on the chips! Also, you gotta be a baller with your cheese selection. I use cheddar and I do like grate my own because it isn’t as processed as the pre shredded stuff in the grocery store. Jam.
Melt that cheese, sir.
Time to remove the goodness! It usually takes about ten minutes on a 375 degree heat setting but just eyeball it and when the cheese is melted really good then you are good to rock out. Don’t burn your digits as that would put a damper on your snacking experience!
Slap those pretty babies on an appropriate sized plate and add the cool toppings that wouldn’t survive the oven (lettuce, tomatoes, etc.) as well as your condiments (salsa, sour cream, lamb’s blood, whatever blows your hair back).
Remove that aluminum foil from the sheet tray and be sure to recycle it or else you are a dick who hates baby seals and whatnot. No need to wash the tray as it was protected by that aluminum foil!
Stuff your face and get back to watching motorcycle races or playing video games and whatnot!
