PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

PIGGIES in BLANKETS (a Captain Cooks creation)

He’s back! again… I am so loving all of this company in my land galley lately.  This time my guy offered to make us his special Pigs in a Blanket.  Some sharp cheddar, weiner wraps (found in your dairy section) and this time he thought we should use meat from our fave local butcher.

Years ago before I retired, we had a ritual of Friday Happy Hour. After a long week, the last thing I wanted to do was cook another meal. Our dinner could take any form from phone-ordered pizza to something I may have stashed in the freezer as long as I didn’t have to cook that day.   Now that R.E.D. is tarped and prepared for our long Canadian winter and we are back to being ‘dirt people’ I think it…
