FrischsHaddockandchips

Lent is somewhat of a stressful season for my family. We’re Catholic, but our daughter has fish and shellfish allergies. Needless to say, we have to be picky about where we eat out. It’s tough to find a Lent friendly restaurant that also caters to my daughter’s food allergies.

My family and I are very fortunate to live near a Frisch’s. They offer great Lenten meals with and without fish. For those who can eat what’s under the sea, each year Frisch’s Big Boy develops new Lenten menu items and often features a special type of fish for a limited time. This year Haddock ‘n Hush Puppies, tender, breaded fillets of haddock served with crispy hush puppies returns just in time. Frisch’s Fish Sandwich has a 64-year history as one of the region’s very best fish sandwiches. Each Sandwich is a whole Cod loin fillets, hand-cut, hand-breaded and golden fried. It is served on a toasted white or rye bun or rye bread (your choice, of course), with lettuce and our own famous tartar sauce. It’s the …Continue Reading…

Our HoneyBaked Ham store- in a rain storm

Every holiday for me is such a rush. We have family out of town, so I’m always going back and forth to stores- in search of the right gift- and the post office- to mail them off to our loved ones!

HoneyBaked Ham has been perfecting their products for over 50 years, which makes me confident that I’m serving only the best quality food to our guests. It’s a meal everyone I know enjoys, and makes those moments extra special. …Continue Reading…

Frisch’s $25 Gift Card Giveaway and FREE Big Boy on May 3

Frischs Founders Day 300x82

Frisch’s holds a special place in my heart, so when they recently reached out to me to host a giveaway, I jumped at the chance.While they are providing me with a promotional item to spread the word, it doesn’t change my opinion of them (my way of giving you the disclosure, but it’s a little sappy too).

As a kid, it was an oasis of sorts with one of my favorite relatives. We would go almost every Sunday and order the same thing: a Big Boy, fries and a vanilla Coke.

It’s funny, because now I get the warm fuzzies going there with my daughter. She loves Frisch’s (she actually calls it “Buddy’s”, which is the cutest thing EVER).

So on May 3rd, it’s only appropriate that we celebrate Dave Frisch’s birthday, otherwise known as Founder’s Day! It’s kinda my personal way to say “Thanks for the memories (and good food), Dave!”

Founders Day 1 300x223

 

What’s even better, is that Frisch’s wants to spend this special day with ALL of us! Visit any Frisch’s on May 3rd dressed as Big Boy and you’ll receive a FREE Big Boy! You can create your own costume or “check” out a free printable costume here. If you want to jump in on the conversation, follow the hashtag on Twitter: #FrischsFoundersDay or join the event on Facebook- you can even invite your friends.

And now for the giveaway! You can win a Frisch’s $25 gift card, by commenting below- What’s your favorite menu item at Frisch’s?

Winner will be chosen by Random.org on Thursday, April 25th at 10:00am. Good luck, and thanks for being a DomesticDebacle.com reader!

Domestic Debacle’s Recipe: Sweet and Salty Pork Roast

Default post image

If you’re a long time reader (and friend) you’re aware that I’m *trying* to learn how to cook. In fact, I’ve had several “misses” in the kitchen lately, so much so that I was banned from touching anything food related for about a month. But I thought I’d give it the good ol’ college try, and get back on the saddle. Which I’m glad that I did, because I came up with something SUPER yummy (and SUPER easy)!

So here’s my recipe for Sweet and Salty Pork Roast:

1 2-4 lb. Pork Roast

1 1 lb. Package of thinly sliced bacon

1 large bottle of bbq sauce

1 large jar of grape jelly

salt and pepper

Reynold’s Crock Pot liner (optional)

First, arrange the bacon on a cutting board, making a basket weave pattern. Lay the pork roast on one end of the bacon weave, salt and pepper to taste. Then roll the roast with the bacon, making sure that the ends are on the bottom of the roast. Place inside of crock pot (insert liner before if you choose to use it) bacon ends side down, tucking the corners underneath the roast.

In a separate bowl, mix the bbq sauce and grape jelly.

Pour the mixture over the roast, making sure to coat the entire roast. Cook on low for 4-6 hours until the roast is at least 145 degrees. The roast will be very moist and tender, so use a large spatula to remove it. Place on a cutting board, and slice!

You can serve it with or without the bacon. Some spots will be crispy and delicious. I served mine with macaroni and cheese, corn bread, and green beans. It was a HUGE hit in my house, and M (my picky eater) ate it without complaint! If you give it a try, let me know what you think.
