Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteaks – loaded with fresh peppers, onions, melted cheese, buffalo sauce, and ranch dressing. Perfect for game day or any day!
If your life is anything like mine, you are on a serious spending freeze right now! I definitely saw it coming….we spent way too much on Christmas and our New Year’s Eve bash….and I even tried to prevent it by having a preemptive talk with Jorden about just how much it was all going to cost us. But at the end of the day, the talk didn’t matter. We are on a spending freeze. Enough said.
For me, that means a LOT of days of not leaving the house. Because every time I leave the house, I spend money! It’s been a good thing, for the most part…..Nora and I are finding more time for reading and arts and crafts and puzzle making. LOTS of puzzle making. And I am finding more time for cooking! Not just making treats (there is ALWAYS time for that), but cooking delicious dinners for the family!
Now…..since we’re not leaving the house…..I have to say, I am attempting more and more for my dinners to resemble something I might order at a restaurant. Can you blame me?? Going out to eat is one of my favorite things in the world! No restaurant food means I have very little to look forward to. (Okay, that’s a slight exaggeration. But I do really love eating out!) With the Superbowl just around the corner and the spending freeze well underway, I decided to try my hand at cheesesteaks. Something I’d order at a restaurant…..on a throw caution to the wind kind of day…..and something that would be perfect for game day!
Instead of just going the traditional route, I wanted to mix it up a little. And, since Jorden loves buffalo flavor….and since he loves eating out just as much as I do….I decided that Buffalo Chicken Cheesesteaks would be good for both of us. As for the kids? They’re another story, altogether. I’m pretty sure we could make them a box of mac & cheese every single night and they’d be perfectly happy….and the restaurant thing? It doesn’t matter to them! They would just order mac & cheese anyway!
