Tom Hiddleston

Is anyone else Hiddlestoned? You know, part of the Tom Hiddleston fangirl army?!

Tom Hiddleston Army

Maybe it's because I have a thing for gingers (the Hubs is a ginger, after all, and my favorite one). Maybe it's because he's British. Maybe it's just because he's increeeeddddiiiibbbbblllllyyyy sexy. And sweet. And smart. I mean, what's not to love?

He loves Shakespeare. 
His fave TV show is Fawlty Towers. 
He can play a mean game of table tennis. 
He loves to read.
And he knows how to dance.

Anyhoots, I'm crushing on Hiddles lately. And I'm not ashamed.

I even created a board for Hiddles on Pinterest. Because, you know...

Fan Girls

So feel free to give me a shout out if you're in the Hiddlestoners Army too. Us fangirls gotta stick together.

Mulligan Stew

Let's talk Mulligan Stew for a moment, shall we?

But first, let me clarify. When I say Mulligan Stew, I do not mean the 1977 TV show of the same name.

Mulligan's Stew
Although I do have a faint memory of watching that TV show on occasion as a child [yes, I am THAT old], it's not really what I want to talk about.

Nor do I mean Mulligan Stew, the Irish-Celtic band.

Not that there's anything wrong at all with that band or their music. In fact, if you're fond of traditional Irish music, I highly recommend them! They're on the o'Facebook and such, so go check them out, lads and lassies.

What I want to talk about, since it is Tasty Tuesday after all, is Mulligan Stew...the recipe. 

Yes of Course Loki

Yes, friends, Mulligan Stew. And if you go and Google that right this very minute, you will likely find many different recipes for Mulligan Stew. But there's no need for Google today at all, because I'm going to share with you MY own personal family recipe. And not only is it yummy, it's super easy to make, and only requires 4...count them...4 ingredients!

This Gonna Be Good

This recipe is a slightly altered version of my Mom's recipe. I add corn to mine, which she didn't do. But I like it with corn, so that's just how I roll. And this is the obligatory food photo.

So let me break it all down into the details and such.

Ingredients
1 Large Can Pork and Beaqns (I believe it was 53oz)
2 Cans Diced Tomatoes (any brand you like, approx 15oz each)
1 16oz Bag of Frozen Corn (I use generic, because I'm just cheap frugal like that)
1 Pound of Ground Beef OR Ground Turkey (I use turkey--trust me, you can't tell the difference)
1 Pair of Pants. Er, oops. My bad.

No Need For Pants
 

Directions
1.  In a Dutch oven or other large pot, brown your ground meat.
2. After the meat is browned, add your pork and beans, diced tomatoes, and corn. Stir to combine.
3. Cook on medium for 5 minutes, then reduce heat and simmer on low for another 5-10 minutes, or until heated through.
4. Blow on it. Wait a bit for it to cool. Don't rush it, people. Then eat and enjoy!
