• Chinese Take Out At Home

    September 6, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    This is a dish that I love-making for Mr. Tipsy.  We love ordering take out but it is so much more affordable to make Chinese Take Out At Home. Mr. Tipsy is a simple man who likes simple food. I found that ordering $40.00 of Chinese take out was a waste when he only ever ordered Beef & Broccoli and Chicken and Peapods. This Chinese take out at home is also a perfect dinner when you don’t have a lot of time to cook because it takes less than thirty minutes to make. It makes enough for a family of…

    Summer is in full swing over at Tipsy HQ and the days are LONG! The three kids I cook for / care for are home from an extended trip to Spain and the Summer boredom has already kicked in. Luckily they are signed up for camps the next couple of weeks and school is back in session mid August. That being said, we still have to eat and for some reason in the Summer, someone is ALWAYS hungry. With three kids that are different ages and a few extra neighborhood kids that come straggling in and out of our house…

    Being from Chicago, Italian Beef Sandwiches are a staple in our diet. I have so many favorites and I like each one for different reasons. Everything makes a difference in the making of  a good beef. The seasoning, the quality of the meat, the spice, the heat and the bread. The main reason why I love Italian Beef’s are because of the gravy soaked bread. There are even some beef stands in Chicago where you can JUST get a gravy bread. They take the Italian bread and soak it in the beef au jus and it is a delicious soggy…

  • Cleaning Up My Act ~ Take Out Menu Twist

    January 19, 2018thetipsyhousewife

    I am getting to the age where I love staying in as much, if not more, than going out.  One of our favorite Date Nights is to order in take out, curl up on the couch, and watch our favorite TV shows.  This USED to be a money saver as well.  I don’t know about you, but the last time I had Asian Take Out delivered to my door, the bill was over $40! Not to mention that it really wasn’t that tasty, it was loaded with tons of ingredients we didn’t need, like MSG, Salt, and Oils. Plus there…
