Thanksgiving Meal Prep with LadyG

This NOT my table! LOL!

Today, I’m bringing you guys along with me in the kitchen while I prepare for Thanksgiving dinner.

In this video, you’ll watch me prep my cornbread for the dressing.

Sorry, there’s no “stuffing” in this Georgia kitchen.

LOL!

Check out the video to see what else I’m doing.

Comment below if you have any questions.

I may upload a follow-up video to show next steps–we shall see.

Enjoy!

Real Good Food: The Way to a Man’s Heart?

LadyG is cooking again!

YAAASSSS!

Anyway…

Today, let us consider the old adage:

“The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.”

Hmm….

Well… I don’t know if it’s true in every case, but it sure did work for me and Mama.

Just kidding!

But not really…

No, seriously folks, while the quote points to the way to a man’s heart, it doesn’t necessarily guarantee arrival–not to mention–a permanent stay.

Am I rambling?

Probably.

 

Maybe this whole thing is a non-issue…

An old wives tale…

Low level philosophical nonsense!

Pseudo-intellectual fodder…

But…maybe there’s some truth to it…

Or…maybe not.

Alas…

The debate continues 🙂

Have a wonderful week my friends!

Love and light to you all!

LadyG😘

Sunday Dinner with Lady G: Love The One You’re With!

corn-and-crab-chowder-a-la-lady-g

If I recall correctly, there is an old song that exclaims, “If you can’t be with the one you love, you gotta love the one you’re with!”

Who am I kidding?  I don’t need to recall anything, I know Stephen Still’s jam backward and forward!

YAAASSSS!

Well today, I had to love the store-bought corn with crab chowder I was with.

Trust me, by the time I’d finished putting a little affection and ‘Gwin spin’ on this chowda, every diner at my dinner table was satisfied!

So here’s what I did to make things more interesting.

First, I grabbed a random brand of corn and crab chowder that I purchased a few days ago.

Side note:  In general, the brand doesn’t really matter because I always doctor it up with my own blend of herbs, spices, veggies, fruits, meats and magic✨

Next, I simmered the chowder in a saucepan and seasoned it with a bit of salt.

Since I had some avocado and shrimp on hand, I decided to invite them to the party.

Basically, I sautéed the shrimp with that Hoodoo that I do 🙂

Just kidding!  But not really 😉

Anyway, after fully heating the chowder, I spooned it into a bowl and topped it with the sautéed shrimp.

I then added the avocado that I mentioned before.

Lastly, in order to truly set it off, I added black pepper.

Et voilà!

Or in the words of the great Andy Griffith, “She’s done and done!”

Now, I recently purchased a small bowl of gumbo which I also plan to love with that Gwin spin!

publix-gumbo

As I think about it, I’ll probably add some extra spices, crawfish and andouille sausage-or whatever else I fancy.

In case you hadn’t noticed, the primary point of this post is to encourage you to work with what you have in your pantry in order to make your store-bought soups, stews or chowders better.

Hence my reference to Stephen Still’s masterpiece!

Wait for it…

YAAASSSS!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend my loves!

Lady G

I think I’d like to hear The Isley Brother’s take on this whole thing 😉
