My love for {ground} minced meat has got the best part of me. I can have ground meat every day of the week with different carbs -“Carbohydrates”.

Recently, I met one of my readers early this week known as Ruth. She tapped me by the shoulder, turned around and she asked “Hi, you are the “Tastie dine writer…”, before I could respond she started praising my easy dishes from this very blog and I felt so mellow. Gave her a hug and thanked her for reading and keeping it TD”. I had no idea my blog is already motivating guys to cooking more and appreciating easy but good home made dishes. I am grateful for all my readers, cause I am just getting started.
