The White Trash Gourmet

In an earlier post I mentioned the goal I set to become more domestic. I have to say, I am pretty darn proud of myself!  I have been sticking to the plan of cooking dinner 3 to 4 times a week and this was a major surprise to me… it’s SO fun and rewarding!

The over-planner in me gets along fabulously with structure and organization (OCD, much?), so this is what I’ve been doing to keep myself on track:

Sunday: Something simple (homemade pizza, casseroles, salads, etc.)

Monday: Mexican (which is usually tacos or burritos because I’m so original)

Tuesday: Pasta

Wednesday: White Trash (see below)

Thursday: Crock Pot (my favorite!  SO EASY, it’s not even funny)

Friday: Leftovers/Mooch off parents/Yes it’s true, I have no shame

Saturday: Dine out

So, this past Wednesday, I decided to make something extremely healthy and non-artery clogging whatsoever for my White Trash meal.  I like to call this…

Heart Attack on a Plate, with a Steaming Hot Side of Cellulite

Tater Tot Casserole: The epitome of Gourmet Dining
"Sloppy Joe, Slop Sloppy Joe..."
"Sloppy Joe, Slop Sloppy Joe..."

Don’t lose faith in my cooking skills until you see what fancy concoction I have planned for this Sunday’s “Something Simple”.

Hint: It involves a spoon, some milk and a bowl of cereal.

  1. I love tatertot casserole..lol..My momma makes it! Anyway so ..I’ve been reading your blog, and I love it!
    I have a really wonderful taco casserole recipe, my husband adores it!! Let me know if ya want it…its super easy!

  2. I to decided to be more domestic this year, now that I’m finally getting the hang of this whole mom and work thing and have been cooking 5-6 nights a week. I’ve found that if I plan out exactly what I’m making for dinner each night, and grocery shop based on that plan, I actually save a lot of money! It’s awesome and it helps me look forward to cooking because I know I have all the ingredients I need for a great dinner on hand. I wrote down everything I know how to make for dinner (so far) and put it on a list- and I let the hubby help decide what things he wants to eat that week. It’s made my life easier and tastier! Happy cooking- oh and post your recipe for the casserole eh? I’ve got a bag of tater tots in need of a destiny in the freezer.

  6. White trash! Bua-haha! I love it! Wow, I haven’t had tater tot casserole in forever. It actually looks amazing. And to be perfectly honest, I’ve never been a fan of sloppy joes, but then again, I haven’t had one since I was about twelve…

    Next Wednesday you should make Spam or frozen fish sticks or something. Heck, yes.

    I’m jealous of your domestic ways, though – if only I had a better work schedule, I’d try to make more dinners. One of these days…
