Title: Dinner tonite
Post by: Lethlweapn on November 08, 2008, 08:44:31 PM
Well for dinner tonight I had a New York Strip Steak, grilled to perfection with a bit of garlic, and some pan fried zucchini and summer squash with mushrooms, then I steamed some broccoli and cauliflower and then mixed all the veggies together with some Olive Oil and garlic. Also had some nice warm rolls to go with it all.

And MAN was it ever good. ;)

--Panko encrusted sliced portobello mushrooms with a soy/sesame/green onion dipping sauce
--Stir fried fresh broccoli in sesame seed oil with toasted sesame seeds
--Seared tuna steak with wasabi mayo sauce

Nommie, nommie!!

Oh, yum!! Omaha Steaks!! Those are really good!! But we've decided that Danny's are just as good as Omaha. But we still get their fliers and will probably take them up on one of their "Please come back" offers. They're just too good to pass up!!

Enjoy those yummy steaks, ell!

Rub it in  ;) Did you go out, make it, or did someone make it for you?
I cooked it all myself. I saw the steaks at Hi Lite's tonight for $4.99 a lb instead of $7.99 a lb and they looked real good, tasted even better.

I make the fried zucchini and summer squash with garlic quite often, but had some mushrooms and the broccoli and cauliflower just sounded like a nice addition.

There was 2 lbs of meat, and about 3 to 3 1/2 lbs of veggies, and no leftovers between 3 people. ;)

Cooking is fun, especially when done right and you get to see the happy faces of the people you cook for.

   We always go out to eat on Saturday night after church. Tonight we went cheap, cost hubby $5.13.  We had whoppers and buy one, get one free. So tomorrow we do home-made macaroni and Italian meat balls with garlic bread and fresh veggies. Can't wait!

Not much of a 'real dinner.'  But it works.

That bread is also my favorite, bloo.    When I pick up a loaf from the store shelf, I swear it could be thrown thru a window, it's so packed.

Try the Simply Apple, juice in the refrigerated section at the store. Tastes just like cider to me, and I'm pretty picky about my cider.

allright, i must have a tapeworm or something because tonight i noshed down a ridiculous amount of food.

over the course of an hour i had a 1/2 lb burger with swiss and blue cheese, a bowl of cheesy taters, a bowl of cole slaw, a few onion rings, ten chicken wings, and i topped that off with a grilled ahi tuna steak and salad.

no bull.

here we go,

delmonico drenched in bourbon cooked medium, redskin potato salad, and a side salad. 

let me tell you about this salad.

it was kind of like a taco salad without the meat.

romaine, roma tomatoes, shredded colby, tortilla strips, bacon, red onions, black bean and corn salsa, and for the dressing i used GFS brand fresh mild salsa.

that salsa is GOOD.

i think i might have enjoyed the salad more than the steak.

wait a second, no i didn't. ;D

usually Meyer, but last night I tried Kroger.  I bought it at 4 and we ate at 5.  I've tried to save it for the next day, but it tastes fishy then.  The Kroger one was good, no fishy taste.  Is there a better place to buy fresh fish?  I would love to find a market I can get fresher fish at. Although, right now I have to be careful which fish I eat since I am pregnant.

if you make downiver occasionally, there is a place in wyandotte on biddle called WEYANDS FISHERY.

they always have good fresh fish cheap.

they had king crab for $4.99 a pound last week, and they always have lake superior whitefish. (that stuff can be hard to find)

I think tonight dinner might be at Harbor Inn.  I hear the scallops are great and I could use a Hopslam.  For those of you who don't know, hops helps prevent aging by waking up mitochondria.  That being said you can get a large amount of hops by drinking good beer like IPA's or Bell's Hopslam.

Try the new Spicy Ranch dressing instead of mayo.  I did that with a BLT the other day - MMM.   I used the spicy ranch on potatos today.  That stuff rocks!

It does not look like mayo - and does not taste like ranch dressing at all.  It is really more about the spiciness of it.   You just gotta be brave nosh....try it.

I pan fry my saurkraut so that it gets rid of the extra moisture. Then I mix the thousand Island dressing together with the saurkraut.

I cook the rye bread like a grilled cheese sandwich, then pull it apart while the cheese is still hot and re assemble the sandwich.

I put a little of the kraut mixture on each of the slices of the cheesy bread, and put the corned beef in between the kraut. Sliced in half for easier eating.

did you make the patties yourself?  Do you have a good recipe?

Yeah, I make the patties.

I prefer left over charcoal grilled salmon. If that is not available I use canned salmon.

I can (14.5 oz) salmon
1 small white or yellow onion-diced
1/2 teaspoon pickle relish
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 large egg
2 tablespoons mayonaise
1 cup bread crumbs or crushed 'ritz' style crackers
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper


Pick over the salmon, removing any skin, bones and discolored flesh. Combine all ingredients and form into burger sized patties.

Place patties in a cast iron skillet with enough olive oil to cover the bottom of the pan. Cook on medium heat approximately 3-5 minutes (or until the side browns nicely) turn and cook other side 3-5 minutes.

Serve with red potatoes, peas and white (bechamel) sauce.

Bechamel sauce...

i tablespoon butter
1 table spoon white flour
1 cup milk
dash nut meg

in a sauce pan on medium heat, add the butter until it melts. Add the flour and stir , incorporating into the butter. Cook on medium heat for about two minutes (you want to cook away the raw flavor of the flour) add the milk slowly to the roux (flour and butter mixture) and incorporate . Add nut meg. Continue cooking until the mixture starts to thicken. Serve over peas and potatoes.

It's down there across the Lost Penninsula boat marina.  Down by the Riverview Yacht Club and those boat clubs.  Right next to Webbers.  (Another great restaurant / a bit pricier though) 

Tomorrow they're having entertainment out on the deck.  (I'm not sure if it's afternoon or evening though and that is if the storms don't roll in)

There aren't many places right on water to sit and have dinner and a drink without going clear into Toledo.  This place works for me.  :)

Last summer, the water was so low it was very hard to get up onto the docks.

But, tonight I noticed that the water was nice and high.  Only one boat at the docks though.   It's still early in the season and also a threat of rain.   There was however 1 jetski ZOOMING up and down the river. (I mean HAULING! ! )  They were having a ball!

Well last night we had chicken breasts and whole grain brown rice.....yuck on the no flavor rice.

I saw her sprinkle a little virgin olive oil on her rice so I did the same......I almost gagged....it was sooooooo nasty that I tried to rinse off the rice. The only thing that saved it was adding some balsamic vinaigrette.

Fortunately, my wife is suspending her (our) flat belly diet.....she discovered that her "milkers" were deflating and she needs to keep them flowing until our boy starts getting teeth.

My legs are sore from a very long ride today. I haven't pedaled in a while. So I decided to stay home and watch the wings game. My original plan was to first drive to the Smokehouse and get some ribs to take home.

Well, I got lazy and didn't go.

I had a sandwich and cereal instead  :(

Oh yeah, and it's not as dark and dingy as it was as the previous restaurant.

I agree, Fry!  I HATE wasting food!  I had some leftover chinese from Great Lake restaurant last night, and it was better than the day I originally ordered it!

My wife makes something like that on the grill as well. She wraps tater chunks in foil along with butter, garlic, and onions.

Also she soaks ears of corn in water, still in the husk and roasts them on the grill......the husks char but the corn is relatively unscathed....very fresh tasting corn.

Speaking of soup. I just made some with fresh tomatoes, carrots, onion, green beans, mushrooms and radishes.

Yes radishes. If you cook them they are very tasty yet don't taste anything like when they are raw. It tastes a lot like cooked cabbage does.

Topped it off with some stew meat, and some oregano, basil, thyme, and 2 cloves of garlic.

Our standard order is white rice, one vegetable deluxe, one pepper steak and one order of sweet and sour chicken.  That is dinner and lunch the next day!  My husband usually goes to pick it up, but my daughter was here tonight and her friend so we went to pick it up . . I think there was 3 in line and 3 went in after us.  It was very quick.  They sure know what they are doing in there.

Yeah, I think that restaurant is in the strip mall on the corner, near Walgreens.  Never heard anything good about it.

Kwans is farther East, on the North side of West Road.  REALLY good food, IMO.

I made Thai fried rice that my sister in law taught to me.  Fry bacon (and ham tonight too) with spices, add onions and soy souce to the mix and pour over fresh cabbage cut cole slaw size in a big pot and simmer just until the cabbage softens, you don't want it raw, nor being boiled cabbage.  Serve over rice.

For spices I use garlic (not too shy on it) pepper, and sometimes add green peppers.  IF you like tang you could easily add some hot peppers to taste too.

Actually, the BEST Chinese food ANYWHERE is at Great Lakes restaurant on Carpenter Road, in Pittsfield Township, just north of Home Depot.  EVERY time I go in there, I'm the only non-chinese customer in there!

One time I ordered Tilapia with black bean sauce, and the waitress went to a great big fish tank, and scooped out a fish with a net, flopping around, spraying water all over, and took it back into the kitchen.  Now THAT is fresh!

Their menu is HUGE.  Several pages, with 30 to 40 items on each page, at least.  They aren't real cheap, but the quality of the food can not be beat.  And there's always enough for lunch the next day!  lol

We occasionally fry bologna.....my technique is to place another frying pan on top to keep the bologna from tenting, thereby ensuring perfectly even contact with the pan....evenly browned...just bologna though....not as a sandwich.

I think you could put slices in it as well but I like the weight effect. 

I used to just press 'em down with a spatula..... like I do with grilled cheese sandwiches

I'm reminded of the time my daughter made own grilled cheese sandwich.....she put a slice of cheese between two pieces of toast......I still chuckle about that. :)

LOL! Fry, that reminds me of the time my brother's girlfriend (she is a year older than me) asked my brother if he wanted some french toast... Obviously, he said yes.  She went into the kitchen, 'made it' and brought it out to him. He looked at it and asked her how she made it. She looked at him and told him "Well, I made the toast, took it out of the toaster, buttered it and put syrup on it! How else would you make it?!"  He laughed his butt off and proceeded to tell her she needed milk and eggs and such... she looked at him and said "Gross! I'm not doing that!"  8*

That happened about a year ago. It was around the same time that she bought hamburger helper, and my brother was going to make it... he asked her where the hamburger was that she bought and she just looked at him. She told him that she didn't buy any hamburger and said "Well, it's hamburger helper... doesn't it come in the box? It shows the hamburger on the front!"

Well dessert tonight was a creation I made that was a combination of Cheesecake and Lemon Pie.

I made a graham cracker crust, in which I also put in 1/2 cup of wheat germ (it almost makes it healthy LOL).

Then I made the lemon pudding and while it was cooking I mixed in some extra sugar and egg yolks and 12 oz of cream cheese.

I saved all the egg whites from the pudding and the cream cheese mixture, and made a meringue.

After the lemon cheese cake mixture finished cooking, I poured it into a cake pan that had the graham cracker crust in it, then covered the lemon with the meringue and cooked it in the oven until it browned up a bit.

Delicious.

Oh, BTW, we went to J. Alexanders tonight. 

Deep fried calamari, salsa and chips for appetizers, and then a REALLY nice 16oz. Prime Rib, with smashed potatoes, washed down with a couple of cold Sam Adam's.  One of the BEST meals I've had at a restaurant in a LONG time!

Five hours later, and I'm STILL full!   :D

Oops, sorry. Only one I knew of was Toledo. Have to check em out one of these days....Of course now u guys have me craving steak so it'll prolly be sooner than later. Just one ?- are they as good (or better) than Mancys or the Maumee Chop House? We prefer the CH over Mancys, but not everyones been there...

I haven't been to Mancy's in 30 years....

Gonna have to go back there!

I would say that Prime Rib I had last night was one of the best I have ever had.  So, J. Alexander's is probably as good or better than Mancy's IMO.

We should hold a gathering there!

Just start saving for it right now.  They are NOT cheap!

Live- Good steak houses usually arent!! If u havent been to Mancys in awhile save ur $$. The last few times we've been they've gone downhill from what they used to be imo. The Chop House on the other hand-not enough good things to say! Just wish I had more $$ so I could visit more often.

Thanks Katy - I will save my money and avoid Mancy's.

I'm going way back now.....  My memory recalls the words "Gandy Dancer"...   Was Mancy's called that, or is the Gandy Dancer another restaurant I'm thinking of?  Or was it called Mancy's Gandy Dancer?

30 years is a long time to remember things like that!  lol

Situated in the beautifully restored 1886 Michigan Central Depot, Gandy Dancer is an architectural landmark as well as an elegant restaurant known for creative preparations of seafood, steaks and pasta. A popular choice for wedding receptions, rehearsal dinners, anniversary parties and other special events, the Gandy Dancer offers guests fine cuisine in an sophisticated, historic atmosphere.

Yup, as many veggies as possible.  Too bad I'm the only one who likes celary, unless I use it as the Trinity in Cajun food.

Seasonings?  Sort of a rub on the roast before browning it, then onion soup mix in the pot.

hmmm...sounds like what I am doing....homemade chicken noodle soup

Maybe in a weekend or so.. Chick Noodle soup

Took a roast, rinsed it and let it dry.  Put a rub on it (Paula Dean's recipe, not keen on it as it turn's out very salty, but in this case it's fine).


A big 'ol skillet with some olive oil.  Seared that rubbed roast, first the fat side then the narrow sides, finally the flat sides.


Put it in the slow cooker.


p.s.

Took some juices out of the slow cooker and put them in the skillet. Heated tit up and scaped the bottom, then returned the stuff to the pot.  Emeril calls them "Yum-Yum's"

Next to the Tater Tots in the freezer section, they had something called "Tater Tops".   About a 1/3 the size of Tater Tots.  Also had pan fry directions.  After the bacon was done, without much greeze, tossed a bunch of them in and fried them.  Garlic salt as soon as they came out.

Agreed, turkey can tend to be dry (unless my wife does it in the oven in a brown paper bag).  ;)

But this year seemed appropriate to do game hens.

And I LOVE my smoker!   8) 8)

And a 1/2 a french bread with garlic spread all over it, add some cheese on top, and warm it in the oven.

Tonite it's Turkey Noodle Soup

The remainders from Thanksgiving that we put up in the freezer until we we're burnt out with poultry.

And for those who stay informed, yup we did game hens at Thanksgiving.   1 was left (they come in a 2 pack, odd numbered guests ate here, but I smoked them all). After thanksgiving, turkeys were way-y-y-y-y on sale, smoked a big one of those.

Hence, a great amount of leftovers for soup.

BRD: food for thought, since you stated you ain't big on turkey.

Sausage dinner with biscuits. 

Cut up your favorite type of sausage ( I use kielbasa from Danny's) in bite size pieces and through in a big skillet.

Add potatoes, onions, carrots, one apple and salt and pepper.  Top with about 1 tablespoon of butter.  Put your lid on the skillet and let cook until all meat and veggies are done. 

Quick, easy and tasty.

Sounds great!  I'll have to try that one sometime soon. Soon, as in Xmas food is right around the corner.

Here's a thought thought (just a thought): Add some sauerkraut and caraway seeds?  Maybe I'll try it and report back.

I started to post to you last night and let you know that I've never had a single problem with Checkers' food. They are by far the best fast food out there. As I've posted elsewhere, their food is always fresh, the meat is never gristly, and their service is always good. No, I have no stake in Checkers, I just love good burgers and a great deal. They even have the best kid's meal toys. Think about it, Arpy--they don't have the overhead that most fast food places do because they don't have any large facilities to maintain. Carryout only. Anyhow, glad you enjoyed it!  :)

if you are craving some ribs you might want to try the pitmaster at telegraph and dunbar.

i haven't had the ribs, but a friend of mine picked me up a pulled pork sandwich from the pitmaster. i actually have ate at the traveling smokehouse and liked it better, but my friend thought the pitmaster was just as good.

i am looking forward for the new smokehouse restaurant. it is a better floor for me.

I'm guessing she really liked it judging by how much she had.....she keeps that up and she's going to be as big as a house. (Not sure how to broach the portion control subject without landing in the doghouse)

She made some sort of homemade pot pie yesterday...it was huge....kind of like stew with a crust....now that was good.

Yup - it's right downtown, about a block away from where the Blue Danube used to be.  That was an awesome restaurant, too...  LOVED the sauerbraten there.  But it's been closed for many, MANY years!  I built the Milan City parking lot about 22 years ago (right next door to the Blue Danube building), and it was closed then.

Be very liberal with the sauce.  Most call for too little as the rice really soaks up the liquids.  I also add a can of sauerkraut in mine.

Good low fat, filling meal.

Chili

I had a butt load of jerky that I over-dehydrated, and was as tuff as leather.  I normally dice up stew meat and throw it in chili.  Yesterday, I chopped up all that seasoned jerky, put it in a baggy and soaked it to rehydrate it.

Checking it this morning, seems to be doing OK.  We'll see.

It's likely to be Checkers on N. Telegraph.

They have some really good specials for fast food, 2 for $4 specials.  The cheesesteak burgers are good, as are the Bufords.  I think they may have a new Ranch thing, I dunno know.

Actually this is dinner tomorrow night, but as I have to start it today I'm posting it today.  Since it seems to be fitting and appropriate for tomorrow forecasted weather I thought it might give others an idea for their Sunday dinner if they're undecided.

About 2 weeks ago my son and his wife were over for Sunday dinner so my wife made one of her spectacular "paper bag hams".  Put the leftover ham bone up in the freezer until the other day, put it in the fridge to thaw.  Fast forward to today.  Inna lil bit I'll be rinsing and soaking a bag of northern beans and letting them soak overnight.

Tomorrow (dinner tonight) I'll be putting the beans and that ham bone in the crock pot and let them all "get happy".

Thanks for the reminder Choff.  We went scouring the cupboard for some "liquid smoke" ( I know it ain't the same, but still) but we must have used it up in a differant recipe.  Perhaps if "somebody" (hint, hint Momma) was going to the store for other stuff they'd be kind and get some!   :P :P

Take uncooked chicken breast, 2 cans of cream of chicken soup & 2 cans of cream of mushroom, 1 can of milk or more depending on the consistency that you like.1 tube of raw Pillsbury biscuits or more if you can fit them in the pot. Salt & pepper to taste. Cook altogether about 2-2 1/2 hours, or longer. It tastes just like chicken & dumplings.The biscuits firm up and make the whole meal.

I will however jazz it up myself.  I will saute' the "Trinity" aka celery, onions and garlic.  And will also peel the skin off of chorizo sausage and sear it with both andoille (-2 sp) and smoked sausage.

Also will dump in a can of diced tomatoes.

Be careful with this offer. Sounds too good to be true, huh? I just checked it out and there is alllllll kinds of fine print associated with these certificates, such as minimum purchase required (usually twice as much as the value of the certificate), mandatory 18% gratuity, no alcohol, blackout days, and the fact that the restaurant can choose to not honor the certificate for any reason. Also, only one cert can be used per month, and some customers have presented their new certificates at the end of the meal only to have the manager tell them the cert number had already been used.

Too big of a hassle, IMO.

And since it's been a month or so, Checkers.

A lil diffferent menu , but still loving (and getting) those Cheese Steak Burger deals.   :P :P :P
Bought three large shakes and some burgers at Checkers the other day...near the bottom of my shake...something foreign came through the large straw. I spit it into the garbage....looked like a lump of breading or something...didn't inspect very closely because my stomach was already turning at the thought of it.

About that time, my little one came up to me with his empty sippy cup....don't know why but I didn't consider my shake contaminated...sort of thinking it was an isolated thing since I didn't see anything else in what was left so I started to pour it into the sippy cup....saw a lump in the flow....fished it out...it was shriveled like a piece of bacon....except it was whitish.

Called the main phone number on the bag.....was asked for my name, age, and if I had any witnesses.... ???...the line of questioning had me puzzled...finally I was asked to freeze it and to take it to the local Checkers.

The next day someone from the local place called....he didn't know how that could've happened since the food wasn't prepared anywhere near the shake machine.
He asked that I take it to the manager and that I'd receive a shake for my trouble...I agreed.

I didn't want to make a special trip so I waited until the next day (yesterday) when I planned to be by there. The person I was supposed to talk to wasn't there but a manager made it right with my order of a couple shakes and a couple burgers.....not for me but for my family....I've lost my appetite.

I told my family to inspect everything carefully.....retaliation for complainers is a very real possibility.

I'm trying for figure out what happened here....my son thought it must've been intentional....I've only been there once when it first opened so they don't know me....I always say please and thank you so it wasn't because I was rude or anything.

I'm thinking that because I ordered three large shakes, maybe the girl had them lined up to fill them one at a time and either some sort of food fight horseplay was the cause or maybe another employee set the girl up.

Sort of get the girl fired so the perpetrator could get a friend hired.....it's all speculation of course.

In any event....watch out for lumpy shakes at Checkers. Yum

Maybe an employee wanted the place to be known as Bacon Shake.  :P

Post by: Frenchfry on April 24, 2010, 04:36:16 PM
And now for another negative that I've been thinking about not mentioning since the restaurant is kind of new and I really want them to succeed....but....about two weeks ago I picked up what was deemed by the counter guy as the big order.

It was an assortment of stuff....two combination plates of sweet & sour chicken, one combination plate of pepper steak with onion.....wife said it should have been called onion with pepper steak....very little of that tough steak and loads of onions.

An order of Teriyaki chicken....basically chicken on skewers.... a little dried out but tolerable. (same for the chicken in the combo plate)

An order of Teriyaki beef....beef on skewers....very tough. (again same for the combo plate)

An order of boneless spare ribs.... tough and chewy...didn't know what to expect....just tried to spend over $30 to use a coupon for a free quart of General Tso's chicken.....now THAT was very good.

Normally not much to comment on....food places have good nights and bad nights...

The thing that really got me was the pork fried rice that came with the combination plates.....it smelled and tasted like they used rancid oil....the place hasn't even been open that long.

I immediately returned the three orders of rancid rice.....I tried to tell them quietly that their oil was rancid....the guy that spoke English had to answer the phone...not sure if the Asian lady really understood me....she wouldn't smell or taste it....I just told her I didn't want anything for it....I just recommended that they just change their oil.

Oh, it's the Panda on Dixie by Nadeau Rd.

Not a cheddar cheese fan so I stay away from those...I've always liked the roast beef but their sauce is a must...not sure why they don't squirt it on before they wrap it.
Just tried their Super Roast Beef sandwich a few days ago...it was loaded with lettuce and a zesty red sauce....didn't even need any Arby's sauce.....oh, and it included a slice of tomato...I gave that away.

The chocolate shakes can sometimes taste a little like Jamocha so I gave up on those....I like hot coffee but I'd rather my shakes not taste like that.

I do not care for any drive thru fast food places. I had a shake from Checkers once, not sure what that taste was, but it didn't taste like anything I have had before that was called a shake.  :-\
I have been there a total of twice, and I just don't care for it.

The only thing I will eat at Arby's is the fresh market turkey & swiss.

I dont go to fast food joints any more ever since I saw Eminems bvideo where he was working a fast food joint and was spitting hockers on the bburgers...looked like cheese....eeeeewwwww.  Made me stop and think!!!  Whatever you do dont go thru the drive through and piss em off.  That wouldnt be good!

Dinner tonite, BBQ ribs, tater salad, pasta salad(Rigatoni) baked beans (bushs) and garlic toast.  Now THATS  a meal!  Oh and I forgot...peach cobbler YUM

On the ribs I used a rub consisting of cayenne pepper salt paprika and garlic that has been soaked in olive oil.  I grow my own garlic and when its time to harvest I peel and chop, put it in a jar, cover with olive oil and seal.  If you just want to work from one jar you dont have to seal it but must keep it refrigerated!  The taste is out of this world...and you can use some of the oil in the jar for garlic toast...just baste the bread with the oil from the jar.  I have been using the same jar from late summer of last year.  The olive oil is aromatic with the chopped garlic and its so convenient!  If you find yourself running low on the oil from the jar, just top it off with more olive oil. The garlic flavored olive oil is handy for a lot of different dishes.  And thats my tip of the day!  Delish!!

Sounds wonderful, Aunt B! We do something similar, but we cover two whole heads of garlic (one end sliced off) with olive oil, then roast them in the oven until the garlic is tender and golden. We squeeze that out onto homemade bread (OMG YUM!!), then store the garlic oil in the fridge to use on and in all kinds of other stuff. Garlic is so tasty and very healthy, too!

The worst danger from botulism comes if raw garlic is stored in oil at room temperature - or even for too long in the refrigerator. Never store raw garlic in oil at room temperature.

I almost always seal mine so I would imagine its not raw after sealing but now I know how to get rid of my husband! lol All jokes aside tho, even when I put it in the fridge unsealed it doesnt last that long. (usually)  I have had a jar in the fridge up to about 9 mths but thats not the norm around here.  I was sick at the time and since the cook was down the garlic went unused for a long time.  When I got to feeling better I dumped it and made fresh.  Geez glad I did now!

And, yes cut the tops off and sprinkle w/oil then roast!  Delicious!

A roast I smoked yesterday as I grilled pork chops.  The chops were fine, but since I had the smoker/grill up there was no reason to waste the (low and slow) heat.  Apple wood for the smoking.

Took it up to about 140 deg. internal, I'll finish at a reasonable temp in the oven at a low and slow there to.  Probably toss a ton of slioced onions over it.

Make sure you have written permission from your neighbors, especially if they are down wind of your home, Dave.  According to Spooky, you are liable if they get wind of the smoke from your chicken, and report you to the chicken police!   ;D   8*

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich at the Original Gravity Brewing Company.  Went there with my oldest son.  Of course, we sampled some of the home brew.  I tried the Orange Peel Wheels and the County  Street Amber (I think those were the names).  My son was drinking the porter, which he really liked.  Then he tried a glass of the High Five IPA.  Almost 10 percent alcohol.  It wasn't too bad for an IPA, but I generally don't care for them.  They are on my list for a return visit though, that's for sure.  Oh, the sandwiches were good, too.

Oh, the High Five IPA.....  Oh dear me.

I remember the evening me and Shaggy went to OG and had a few glasses (they limit you to three - and for GOOD REASON!), then we went home and drank a growler he had. 

Good beer, but MAN does it have a kick!  I can usually drink almost any type of beer, as much as I want, and not get stumbling drunk.  The High Five is not "any type of beer"!

Drink with caution, but try it, folks!

Great idea fry...   let me be the first to comply ;) ;) ;)

never have worked in a restaurant of any type...   none in Monroe County...   none anywhere...

I did have to do KP in the Army...   would that count???

I've been thinking about some of whining about the MTers that review their favorite restaurants...

thinking back about my favorite three that I regularly comment on...

Giuseppe's Pizza...    great food (they have more than pizza btw) and I have known the owners (Joanne and Joe) since their days at Villa Party Store...   also know several of their extended family members...  great family...

Harbor Inn and Ale...   great food...   have gotten to know the owners (Connie and Frank) since they opened up...  another great couple...   btw...   my review of their place yesterday included a comment about the cute bartender...   it was Connie behind the bar!!!   If it had been Frank I might not have been as quick to use the word cute ;) ;) ;)

J's Smokehouse...    great food...   have gotten to know the owners (J and Dave) since they opened up...   a great pair...


Hmmmm....   doesn't take long to see a pattern develop here...    great food and great people equal a great review (from me anyway)...

Too many businesses today are not run in a "hands on" manner...   certainly not all the big chains or franchises...

but when you take a nice restaurant and add hands on management by the owners you get something fairly unique in todays business world...

and you end up with a superior product overall...

and that generates good reviews in a lot of different places...   including MonroeTalks...

Seems to me it would still make more sense to post a great review of someplace you've eaten this week than it would to whine about J's getting his just reviews...

That is, of course, if those other places are really all that great 8* 8* 8*

Not quite an admission but it's what I expected. Yes you worked for J's Smokehouse....hence one reason for your loyalty and why you've helped with the unofficial advertising campaign. I don't doubt that you genuinely enjoy their food....just thought disclosing your business relationship would be the honest thing to do.

As for dinner...I think my wife called it beef pot....not real sure but I know it better as oily noodles. (long skinny flat noodles with beef and carrots in a slippery tasty sauce)

And the name of what my wife made just came to me...she called it "Beef bowl"....I looked it up and it's actually called "Beef Noodle Bowl"

She makes the broccoli on the side so she can add them to her portion because she knows I don't like those nasty smelling things.

Don't talk to me about the honest thing to do.  You don't know the meaning of the word.  You're the one stirring the pot, and trying to make a case out of something when there's nothing there.

I don't know how old you are, and I really don't give a damn, but you ARE losing your memory.  Is Alzheimer's setting in?  Maybe you should mention it during your next appointment with your shrink.

I never kept it a secret that I worked at J's to do a little wiring, as Catlady so eloquently pointed out.

J and Dave are my friends - that's no secret either.  But my posts regarding their food are genuine, whether you believe it or not.

There's a difference between working for (doing the wiring) and working at (being the chef) at a place.

In either case, if you're not talking about "issues" and you like their food, go ahead, talk them up.  If you have "insider" issues, keep it to yourself.

To each their own in whose food ya like/dislike.

But now this has spiralled into a thread drift, so back on topic folks.
Title: Re: Dinner tonite

My point exactly, Dave.  I have done work for Tiffany's before too (many years ago), but I don't like them.  I have nothing good to say about them, so I basically keep that to myself. I've also done major wiring jobs at Subway, Arthur Treacher's (long time ago), Baskin Robbins, Ram's Horn, and several non-chain restaurants, to name a few.  I don't feel obligated to talk those places up, so I don't.

Everyone has the right to like or dislike the food and restaurants of their choosing.

Sometimes you like it, sometimes you don't.

Just like people.   ;)

FF, now that sounds like a yummy meal. Including the broccoli.

My kids bought me a "cooking with beer book". Hubby makes his own brew and does his own backyard smoking in his smoker so we are always trying new recipes. I made a beef soup with carrots,onions,green beans,potatoes,corn,stew beef. I sauteed the beef in a bottle of homemade beer with garlic & onions first, then  added some broth then veggies,bouillon,tomato sauce, sugar & spices. The beer made the meat so tender it melted in your mouth. I did not realize what  the advantage to cooking with beer is. Besides the fact he makes awesome beer.

I take the thousand island dressing and mix it right into the saurkraut, then I put the saurkraut mixture on the melted swiss cheese and put the meat in the middle. Having the cheese melted on both sides helps hold the kraut mixture and the rest of the sandwich together.

It's still messy as all get out, but it's a little easier to eat. LOL

Take the stuff that you put in Reuben's and put in a crescent roll  by pillsbury, unroll the unbaked dough and place your Reuben ingredients in them and roll it up. Bake at 350 until golden brown. They make the greatest appetizers. Serve with thosand island dressing.

Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: Baby Hitler on May 22, 2010, 04:04:38 PM
Yes, I cook the kraut, which reduces the moisture, afterwords I mix it with the thousand island. The corned beef, if it is from a brisket, you can dice it up finely after it is cooked, but if you use the stuff from the deli, you don't want to cook it too much because it will get rubbery and chewy.

I always cook the saurkraut separate and mix it together at the end.

Chicken breast marinaded over night in Itialian dressing then grilled and sliced.

Put a layer of hummus on pita bread followed by red romaine lettuce or tabouli(my personal preference), roasted red peppers, and roma tomato slices (only use the tomato if you don't use tabouli).  Throw the chicken in, wrap up and enjoy.

Its a great light meal on a hot summer day.  I'm serving mine with a chilled hearty white wine.  Because of all the bold flavors in the dish you need a white that can hang.  I forgot the name and the style of what I'm serving but I can get that to you when I get home.

Mediterranean Chicken Wraps

Chicken breast marinaded over night in Itialian dressing then grilled and sliced.

Put a layer of hummus on pita bread followed by red romaine lettuce or tabouli(my personal preference), roasted red peppers, and roma tomato slices (only use the tomato if you don't use tabouli).  Throw the chicken in, wrap up and enjoy.

That sounds delicious!! Making me hungry already.

Tough luck if it does upset anybody, BRD!

I just grilled up some chicken breasts, rubbed with Montreal chicken rub, and smothered in J's sauce!  Also had some corn and carrots from Kroger.

If sauces are used properly they're used to enhance flavor, not cover something up.  Frankly if you were to use J's sauce to cover something up, you'd be in for a rude awakening.  The flavors of J's sauce are carefully balanced and what ever you were trying to cover up would come right through, no problem.

I made some lemonade/freestone peach frosties for dessert.

I took 1 can of frozen lemonade (spartan brand, it's cheaper and tastes better than minute maid)

and 1 can of raggety ripe freestone peaches. (MUCH tastier than cling peaches)

I divided it into 1/3's and blended each 1/3 with 2 cups of ice and 1/2 cup or so of water and blended it.

Then poured into cups and frozen for about 2 hours.

If you stir them at this point they are very thick, and you can drink it then, or if you are strong willed, you can wait over night and have your own "italian ice" the next day.

Delish.

We split Saganaki and some Sadniki with some Pite bread, some feta cheese and olives... I had Broiled Octopuss, which they did a very good job.. (it was tender) and my friend had some shrimp broiled in olive oil, spices.. served on some fresh pasta...   

Then we went to one of the pastry shops and got some Baklava and struedal... then walked around all the shops...

Went to Mac's in Saline tonight, after watching my daughter in her choir concert.  I had Ruby Red Trout, smothered in asparagus and morel mushrooms and rice pilaf, with seafood gumbo for an appetizer.  The salad (with craisins and feta cheese) was awesome, with their house dressing...  it was a dijon/horseradish vinaigrette that was out of this world!

Ugh!

Expensive, but worth it!   ;D

I will be in Tampa next week. Can you recommend some good restaurants?


One of my favorites is the Colanade, it has been there since the 1930's, still family owned.. great food, great service.. Good atmosphere, not overly priced but fine dining... really good seafood..  here is a link to their menu http://www.thenade.com/new/menu.html (http://www.thenade.com/new/menu.html)

If you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience and don't mind the price... Bern's Steakhouse... You will need to make reservations.. they have about anything you would want... they are famous for their steaks, I get the aged ribeye, they are in about six sizes..  your waiter should take care of you.. sometimes it is better to buy a larger untrimed and your waiter will trim it for you before it is cooked... you can get about 20 different kinds of caviar.. Their lobster is unbelievable.. their menu is pages... even down to their dressing.. they have cheese caves... you can get a 4k dollar bottle of wine... but for two people, getting a very fine meal.. with a few drinks and a trip to the desert room... where they have world class deserts... and a cigar bar.. expect to spend a couple of hundred...

You would spend the same at Don Schula's or Ruth Chris.. but Berns is sooo much better... again family owned.. been in business forever.. there is only one Berns Steak house... and if you are in the dining room where they have the chair that George Bush autographed.. (He ate there a lot because McDill is near there)... well you can do what you wish with the chair..

Here is their link.. http://www.bernssteakhouse.com/ (http://www.bernssteakhouse.com/)

If you are looking for upscale Latin and another Tampa Landmark.. there is the Columbia in Ybor... http://www.columbiarestaurant.com/ (http://www.columbiarestaurant.com/)

There are many restaurants in Ybor.. The Columbia is price.. there another place that is very good.. I just can't remember the name... La Tropical I believe, it is near the Columbia..

If you want to go off the main path an into a Tampa Neighborhood, there is L Teresita... it has two sides.. go to the dining room side unless you want to spend it in the diner side.. which is noisy..  here is their link

http://www.lateresitarestaurant.com/ (http://www.lateresitarestaurant.com/)

If you want the best food at a great price... Nickos Diner..  in the hood.. it has a big menu and Elvis ate there in 1956.. you can sit in his booth.. it is a real dining car diner.. owned by a greek guy so they have full diner and greek food...

and there is the three coins.. both of these places is where I go... the coins I can walk to... they are open 24 hours and have Wifi and our door dining on lovely Nebraska Avenue.. Kiddie Corner from Alpine Liquor... and if you are lucky.. you may spot a hooker.. if you are REAL lucky... there may be a set of Tranny Hookers!!! 

Here is the link to both of these places...  http://www.urbanspoon.com/nf/30/2936/2918/Tampa-Bay/Seminole-Heights/Diners (http://www.urbanspoon.com/nf/30/2936/2918/Tampa-Bay/Seminole-Heights/Diners)

Oh.. you have to go to Hamburger Mary's in Ybor...  Really the best Hamburgers you will ever eat... and Hamburger Mary is a real person.. a big ole drag queen... the place is a riot...  There is always something going on there... here is the link..

http://www.hamburgermarystampa.com/ (http://www.hamburgermarystampa.com/)

Ybor is full of places... everything even Alaskan Tacos... so enjoy!!!

Yeah that was across the Courtney Campbell over in Clearwater.. I am not sure if it is still open.. but near there on State Rd 60, there is a Perogie restaurant.. I have been wanting to try it.... they serve other stuff besides perogies.. but they have perogies about every way you can think of having a perogie.. at least that is what they had been advertising on TV...

Tony's also makes a spice called Tony's creole.
You can find it at Meijers or Krogers.
About 20 years ago I was down south at a trout farm/ restaurant  and they used it on all their fish. I tired it & got hooked. Could never find it here though until the last few years. My mom recently found it at a $1.00 store.It has all the spices in it your typical rub calls for when smoking.

Low & slow grilled baby-back ribs with a pan of water under 'em on one side and Mesquite wood chips on the other side...first time trying the smoke method.

We coated the ribs with a dry spice rub mixture but near the end we'll put on our favorite BBQ sauce.....Bull's-Eye Barbecue Sauce.

Not sure how good the meat will be since my wife bought 'em at Kroger....I think I'm spoiled on the Danny's ribs...I'm just waiting for 'em to go on sale again...not sure what the everyday price is.

I'd like to try J's someday but I guess I'll have to wait until my buds get out of prison.....I might run into a hostile crowd.

LOL....you can get J's sauce at Danny's btw.  I prefer the sweeter Bull's-eye on ribs and pork steak, but J's is all I use on chicken anymore.  It has much more kick.

Jasmine is *much* more flavorful, a lot 'nuttier' tasting. We cook it in chicken broth which makes it even more delicious.

Dinner tonight is a mystery so far...

unless we're having leftover chicken breast from last night (they were delicious btw) there isn't much in the fridge...

my wife works in a grocery store (and had to work today) so she frequently brings home something for dinner...

One thing for sure it will be something to cook out on the smoker grill...

as long as the weather is nice we cook dinner on that almost every night all summer :) :) :)

Well first, it actually HAS flavor. LOL

Most of the really good chinese restaurants use it. If you ever wondered after eating at a good chinese restaurant, why does this rice taste different than at home, this is probably the reason why.

We have a small steamer that duals as a rice cooker that we got at a garage sale years ago. It holds two cups of uncooked rice, and while you usually put in twice as much water as you do rice when you cook it on the stove, you only have to put in about 2 1/2 cups of water in with the rice with this. The steam makes up for the rest.

Plus, you don't have to worry about the rice burning or sticking together when using the steamer, and the rice comes out perfect every time.

I will be cooking the parents a version of Grizzly Peaks Cheddar Ale Soup and I will be making homemade croutons from a French baguette to go along. I may find some way to marinate some tofu and then pan fry it to go along. Or I may grill portabella steaks instead. I'm undecided.

I eat jalepenos like potato chips.  Fortunately La Curandera convinced me to plant a Thai Dragon Pepper plant.  I tried a bite of one yesterday (not mine, from the restaurant she works at) and I have to day I can't wait to cook with them.  I'm thinking a paste made with them, olive oil, garlic, and maybe a bit of mint to use as my signature spice blend.

If you really want to make them stuffed, make 2 very very thin patties, put a piece of cheddar cheese in between them, then seal the edges together around the cheese

Tried the new $8 hot-n-ready supreme pizza at Little Caesars.

My family loved it but aside from me having to pick off the shrooms.....the crust was overdone...although I guess that's better than underdone with that raw doughy taste.

Unfortunately the crazy bread was hard as a brick....I'm guessing they were victims of the same slowing down of the automated ride through the oven.

I saw a Burger King sign that mentioned ribs.....that sounds pretty good.

For a department presentation my Arabic class had several restaurants donated food, Oasis gave us so much taboulli, hommus and baba ganouj! We all got to take some home.

Made a wild willy's rub which is paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, salt & pepper  cayenne & a little sugar.Then it went into the smoker about 7am today.

Any other ideas welcomed.  If this needs to be another thread, please feel free to start one.

Any flavor of jello prepared & set to almost firm, then add 1 container
of cool whip,(thawed) 1 can of drained pineapple, 1 can of drained Mandarin oranges, lots of marchino cherries, makes a very pretty salad & very light in the summer.Oh and kids love it also.

I took some chicken breasts a package of onion mushroom soup mix and 2 tablespoons of canola oil and covered the chicken in the mixture, grilled it then added some bbq sauce I made up real quick at the end. Broccoli florets and cottage cheese.

I soaked it for 12 hours and didn't shuck it.  I fired up the grill and put it on for about a half hour.  Everyone I spoke to raved about how it would taste but I didn't think it was that great.

Grilled corn really needs to be done in a fire pit with coals, not on the grill. Then it's wayyyy tasty!

Shuck the corn, put some BUTTER on it ,any other herbs or spices you like, then wrap it up in tinfoil and put it on the grill. Turn it a few times as it cooks. I think you'll like the results. Make sure you start with good corn!

We always put the corn, in-husk, dressed with butter, and wrapped in foil, down into the actual fire pit; we buried it in coals for several hours. The result was divine... sweet, tender, slightly charred, and butter soaked corn!
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: PXaiver on June 15, 2010, 09:38:41 PM
I'm not a huge butter fan.  I understand using a little to enhance the flavor of the corn but the idea of something being butter soaked is really gross to me. I think I just needed to get some better corn.

It's tough to get good corn this time of year.  Another month and you should have all kinds of places selling good, locally grown (or maybe from close to Michigan) corn.  Tastes much better than what's available now, from Florida.

Normally water-soaked corn will taste good - but it tastes very different from boiled corn, and sometimes has a charred, smoky flavor.  I've even roasted young field corn this way, and it was good.

Shaggy, was the corn oily?  Maybe it had something to do with the oil spill...   ;)

No matter who you are, there's only one opinion that matters.

And the corn deal, cooking in butter probably isn't the healthiest thing to do, but I guess if you only do it once in a while, you could treat yourself now and then.

But I could think of some tastier treats than butter.

Post by: PXaiver on June 16, 2010, 06:48:15 AM
I didn't say butter was gross I said that anything soaked in butter was gross.  If you're soaking something in butter you're obviously trying to hide the flavor of what you're eating so what you cooked can't be that good to begin with.  Come on now, think.

As for the hippie chicks, I'm just an equal opportunity employer and, like I get cravings for different types of food, I get cravings for different types of women.  I look at life as a buffet in all aspects. 


Live the corn tasted a little green.  Next time I do it I'm going to try a few different things.  Everyone told me the corn should taste a little charred but still delicious.  I think the main problem was the quality of the corn.  I got it from that market you suggested so I figured it would be good, but its not in season yet. 
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: Monique on June 16, 2010, 07:55:05 AM
Oh, good grief! Perhaps I should say "laced" with butter. Better?  8* I apologize for my poor word choice. You guys sound like your arteries are clogging just reading about it! LOL  Sorry, but fresh corn tastes best with good ol' butter and salt.

And butter is not bad to cook with, as long as you balance it with good olive oil or peanut oil. Margarine is just chemicals, and lard (including bacon grease) is very unhealthy.

Just curious, what the heck do YOU put on your corn if you don't like butter?! Mayonnaise? Maybe grape jelly??  :-X

Really? ? ?  Arguments even in the Dinner Tonite thread ? ? ? ?   HAHAHAHAHAH  How funny!


Last night I worked late and didn't have time for a big dinner so I had a bowl of Special K laced with milk then sprinkled with an ever so light dusting of pure cane sugar.   :D


BTW:  I don't put anything on corn.  Cob or otherwise.  No butter.  No salt.  Just corn.


And, no matter how you dress it up before hand, I don't like grilled corn on the cob. 

Many do.  I don't. 


Title: Re: Dinner tonite

If I do put anything on corn its a very light coat of butter, but normally I just leave it plain.  If the corn is good it doesn't need any doctoring.

Never seen the show, I love tofurkey, but would never ask my family to eat it!

I understand not liking tofu. If it's not prepared right it's just not that good. Marinated and prepared correctly it's yum. I suggest you try it one more time in pad Thai and a good Thai restaurant.

Never cared for mixing my fruits and vegetables together too much. Well except for adding pineapple to cole slaw.

I do love J's Smokehouse Cole Slaw. I think they mix some of the pineapple juice right into the slaw sauce, but however they do it, it sure is good.

I don't know if I'd ever make that salad that you described myself, but I'd probably try it if someone else did. ;)

I do the same in a crock pot.......add about a cup of rice or so, and double up on the sauce as the rice will absorb a lot of it.  I've simplified it even more by buying shredded cabbage generally used for slaw.

Not bad, actually, in her defense.

We have one of those "double barrelled, horizontal smoker grills".  I believe she marinated the roast in Russian Dressing for several hours, then seared it on the grill side.  Moved it over to the smoker side for several hours.  We both like our roast to be a bit "charred" on the outside fats.

Then I even think she tossed it in the oven way-y-y-y down to finish it and keep it warm.   :P

Now me, when I smoked the turkey breasts last weekend, I had the turkey "popper's" implanted, and my remote thermomter running.  But that was company in town that I couldn't risk giving a case of "the runs".   :-\
And turkey noodle soup from the leftovers and bones is on tap this weekend!

Nope, no further details on how she did it.

She owns the kitchen, I own the grill.  If I cook in the house, she may try to help.  Then it's a matter of "Okay, it's your kitchen!" and I'll walk away.

Same out on the grill.  She wants to help, she can help.  She wants to cook, though, then she cooks.

So when it's "her grill" I give her space.





But it's MY GRILL!   8) 8) 8)

We have the same or similar smoker grills arpydave...

about anything that can be cooked in the oven we've tried in our grill...

including pizza :) :) :)

And though the one roast we tried was "not too bad" it wasn't so great that we've ever tried it again :-\ :-\ :-\

Haven't told Fuzz yet, but I'm making eggplant Parmesan for dinner. Probably going to make a good salad too. But the problem is I don't have all the ingredients for the salad yet. anyone have a good recipe for a balsamic vinaigrette?

I'd like to be grilling/smoking tomorrow, but don't have anything thawed or prepped.  I'm sure that even that Gen. Buster guy would tell ya that a good smoked anything requires at least some amount of prep.  And I ain't there for the weekend.  Weather's supposed to be better on Sunday, maybe I'll have something set up by then.  I'll grill or smoke in the rain, snow, freezing temps (freezing temps just make it more of a challenge outside).   8)

Looking towards a new recipe, Meat Stuffed Meat, which sounds like an old favorite, Bacon Explosion.

Beer in me WHILE grilling!  ;D

Just an old coffee can with adequate amount of beer, on that smoker side of the grill heated until boiling or just under boiling actually.

When a brat is done, just dunk it in the beer.  Keeps it warm until all are done, and cuts any greese layer, esp. if you happened to split a casing or 2.

On a diet?  Do the low cal version, Miller Lite or Bud Lite, or Coors lite!  :P

Some people back home (Wisc.) even put their onions/peppers in the can of beer.  To me that's extra work.  Draining those veggies or risk a soggy brat bun.

And I haven't met anybody yet who enjoys it when their buns are soggy!   :o

Brats on the grill, soaked in boiling beer after, with sautee'd green peppers and onions.

Likely a pasta sald on the side.

I've never cooked them like that before...

Usually I put the brats in a pan, with the onions and peppers, pour a can of beer over the whole mess, and thoroughly cook them.  Then I take the brats out and brown them on the grill - very hot, for just a few minutes.  Keeps them nice and juicy, and I know they're cooked all the way through.  Strain the onions and peppers from the beer, and put them over the brats.  Then discard what's left of the beer.  I always shed a tear at that point.   :'(

Don't like wasting beer!   :D

 We had brats last night too. Boiled them in water, beer, and one onion. Then I put them on the grill. I cut up red onion and peppers and put them on the upper shelf on the grill. This way they are warmed and still have that little crisp to them.

Phoenix I remembered this recipe and thought of you since you mentioned lemon. These are easy & very yummy.

  Lemon squares

 Ingredients
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1 cup butter, softened
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
1 tablespoon lemon zest
Directions
1.Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2.Mix 2 cups of flour and confectioner's sugar together. Cut in the butter or margarine. Mix well until the dough resembles pie dough consistency. Press the dough into a 9x13 inch baking pan.
3.Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.
4.Beat together eggs, sugar, 4 tablespoons flour, lemon juice and lemon rind for at least 1 minute. Pour the mixture over the baked crust.
5.Bake the bars another 20 minutes, or until the lemon topping has set. Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar when cooled.

I make them several times during the summer here too.  I usually go with a lesser/cheaper cut of meat and beat it with a tenderizing hammer, and marinate it for most of the day.  I like to put mushrooms, onion slices, cherry tomatoes, and squash slices on mine then sprinkle a fair amount of Greek seasoning on the ka bobs while they are grilling.

 Oh thanks for the idea Fuzz.
Greek seasoning sounds good. Is that a dry mix? Thinking it can be found in the salad dressing aisle maybe.

 I am using pineapple, potatoes,onions,peppers,mushrooms,tomatoes.
Forgot the squash. I also decided to chicken & steak. I prefer steak  ka bobs but other family members like chicken.

Dry mixture called Cavender's All Purpose Greek Seasoning.  Look for a yellow and white 8 oz shaker top dispenser.  I think I got it at Meijers in the spice and herb section.  Good all around mix.....great on steaks.

The last time I made chicken kabobs was at Fuzz's house. I also made rice and sweet and sour sauce.

We had fresh pineapple too.

And no, there weren't any leftovers. LOL

Those turned out good, FB.......just can't remember a lot of details, seem kind of fuzzy!   ;)

Tonight we had grilled Omaha steaks, grilled veggies, and grilled corn on the cob. And YES--emphatically YES--I used real butter! lol Rubbed the ears down with a stick of cold butter, sprinkled some sea salt, wrapped them in foil, then roasted them on the grill for about 20 minutes. Sweet buttered perfection!!  :D

I try to play around with different combinations of herbs to add taste to food since my wife really struggles with high blood pressure.  Phoenix being home for the summer has brought back some combinations cooking middle eastern food that are on the low sodium side, but still adds a robust flavor to different foods.

Post by: arpydave on July 03, 2010, 09:11:05 AM
YW Shag.

I know the Lowe's price because that's where I get my other charcoal, "Cowboy Coal".  A bit more pricey.  Cowboy don't have that petroleum (even Kingsfords not "Match Start" stuff has some) seems to impart a flavor.  I saw a segment on some show telling you how Kingsford is made.  Yuck.

I use Kingsford as a base and to crank up my smoker/grill.  I'm doing burgers or something quick? Kingsford.  Cost effective.

Getting my smoker side up to temp?  Kingsford.

Gonna cook low and slow?

Kingsford initially, then Cowboy from then on.  I don't have access or resources to properly have smoking "logs" (i.e. hickory limbs).  Cowboy is straight up charred hardwood, no additives or hidden flavors (good or bad).  I can feed my smoker with it as needed without some grey plume coming out like ya get with Kingsford.  I just add some lump apple, etc. from Meijer's for the smoke.

The Ace Hardware flyer we just got shows Cowboy on sale there, at a good price.  Didn't know they carried it until after I bought mine from Lowe's.  I'll be checking out my local Ace and if they truly have it I'll be stocking up!   :P :P :P :P Sounds like a really good price.  ;)

Like I said if your gonna grill over coals that 1 batch will carry you over, like burgers, dogs and steaks, you may not want to pop the bucks for Cowboy.  Once the coals are grey Kingsford essentially has lost it's IMO nasty aroma.  But if you're gonna feed the fire, feed it with Cowboy Charcoal.

Dave, I bought a big bag of hickory "logettes" at Meijer this spring. Don't live in Monroe, so don't know if they have it there. Depending on the size of your smoker, you may have to break them down some, but they were cheaper than the small bags you usually find at retailers.

Sammy: thanks, but I haven't seen that in this area.

As soon as I finish this post I'm firing up the smoker (yup, Kingsford) to do a big 'ol pork shoulder.  Later after it smokes in apple wood it wil turn into pulled pork BBQ

BRD, Greek Gods yogurt is a staple for me. I love it! I'm out of it and now after reading your post I'm having an incredible craving!

I've seen at Claudia's in Toledo that they have frozen yogurt as well. I really want to try it!

Dinner tonight will probably be a tofu Kefir strawberrry smoothie or a salad. With Fuzz out of town I'm not cooking.

A roast will be seared on that grill and then gets happy and smoked on the smoker side.  Roast will be finished in the oven tomorrow.

While the roast is getting happy and smoked, for tonight it will be pork chops that marinated over night in Russian dressing on that grill.

I don't let them coals go to waste!

Last night we had New York Strips on the grill, and I went to Ciolinos yesterday, the one on Lewis since I was in Toledo, and picked up what would normally be about $40 worth of produce for around $12.

Took a yellow squash and pan fried it with some sesame oil while steaming some carrots, after they were both done I combined them with some mushrooms and sauteed them for a bit, then added in some scallions.

Picked up some peaches too, and made Peach shortcake, (Instead of strawberry).

Do you coat the veggies with anything?

I know someone that uses a oil and vinegar salad dressing and man does that ever taste good.
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: arpydave on July 17, 2010, 09:14:51 AM
Typically just a cheap azz Italian dressing out of the bottle.  Coat the veggies in 1 bag, chicken in another, beef in another baggie.  Not really marinadeing, just coating to promote cooking, not scorching.

And if you're using fresh mushrooms, soaking them in Italian dressing helps keep them from falling apart as you skewer and cook them.

But that sounds similar.

Yeah, the oil from the dressing also helps to prevent sticking to the grill.

I also picked up 2 acorn squash yesterday, and want to grill those tonight along with something else, just havent figured out what yet. With it being as hot as it has been, I'll be cooking a lot more on the grill. ;D

For marinating you can also use  the dry packet of Italian dressing. Then add your own olive oil & vinegar. The seasoning   is very flavorable.

With the fresh veggies coming out I also decided to make a veggie pizza. I take the crescents and put them on a sprayed cookie sheet,bake at 350 until light brown. Cool

 Then mix 1 8oz. cream cheese with 1/2 cup of ranch dressing. Spread it on the crust then add black olives, shredded Cheddar cheese,carrots,broccoli. I know  some people add radishes & peppers also.
It is very  good.

TY for the tip Ms. Choff

For simple marinates I just use house brands (Meijer's, Krogers, etc.) whether it's Italian or Russian or whatever.  Kroger house brand is frequently 10 for $10 also.  But when it's gonna be on a salad, I buy the "good stuff' (and pay for it as well)!

Russian dressing is a good marinate for tomato based grilling later on, as in BBQ.

Thanks, too, for the tip about Parran's. We went to Ciolino's today to get their fresh corn; it was $.99/dozen! Haven't tasted it yet, but it sure looks and smells good. Can't wait to give it a try! Then we'll be putting up bags of roasted kernels to use this winter.

Sure you didn't leave out a number there, Monique? At $.99 a dozen, they should be sold out in about five minutes!

When we went to Ciolinos on Thursday the corn looked bad. Though I am sure like everything else they get new shipments in that's more fresh. I will try it at some point. I did last year and I wasn't disappointed. I prefer Blocks farm market myself but they aren't open all year round.
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: choff4 on July 18, 2010, 10:07:57 PM
If you spend $25 at Ciolinos Corn will cost $1 a dz.
Spend $30 it will cost .80dz.
Spend $50 and 1 dz. is free.

Without this, the corn is .25 an ear

BTW the sale runs through Monday.

I'm stopping at Milan market on the way home and getting one of their pre pattied burgers and some form of salad.  The only question is do I go for the bleu cheese, Jalepeno cheddar, or bacon cheddar burger...
Title: Re: Dinner tonite

Ooo, I vote jalapeno cheddar! That sounds delish!

I'm craving burgers, too. Maybe I'll ask Handsome to fire up the grill.

That sounds good, let me know how that comes out.

I am cooking up some steaks cut from a whole beef tenderloin that I got for $3.99 a lb.
Had some of it yesterday and it was so tender you didn't even need to chew it, just roll it around in your mouth for a minute and it falls apart. LOL

Along with a tossed salad, and some other veggies I got from Ciolino's it should be another hit.

Never think to  make them it seems because my 2 girls don't eat bacon. I need to start making things I like I guess. lol
As far as sweet corn I could eat that every day.

Last year I froze 35dz. of corn and put up beets, &  2 kinds of dill pickles and salsa. Haven't started anything this year. :(

I will say that being a mom & wife is the best job I could ever ask for. I did work at a Ele. school  , but my brother was in a motorcycle accident & my grandmother was dying, so I quit work to take care of them.I never went back to work and now my girls are 18 & 24 I still feel the want/need to take care of them, so I have more time to do the things I enjoy especially in the kitchen. Can't ask for a better job then that. :)

YES!  Make yourself things that you like!  Let your kids adjust!

If your girls don't eat bacon, try making a BLT with ham or turkey.  Just a ham or turkey sandwich with lettuce and tomato, but very tasty!  Or just a lettuce and tomato sandwich!  With mayo, I love 'em!

Pick them (fresh means the best flavor), slice off the tops,
olive oil, salt & pepper, grill cut side down for a few minutes, flip them over, put fresh basil, Parmesan and bread crumbs on the top, finish cooking.

Let cool a bit, don't burn your mouth.

YUM!

If you ever get a food that you want them to try, and they have never had it before, tell them that they can't have any, because they wouldn't like it anyhow.

Pretty soon, they will come begging for a taste. LOL

I never tried spam.

Really?  Try it!

Slice it a little less than a quarter inch thick, and fry it in a dry, non-stick or cast iron pan - it has enough fat in it to keep from sticking.  Brown it just a little - gives it a great flavor!  And two slices fit perfectly on bread!  Like it's made for sandwiches!
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: choff4 on July 20, 2010, 11:09:35 AM
Will do. Maybe I can get the rest of my family to try it. Hubby probably has had it, when I met him he ate everything out of a can and I myself had never even had a can soup before. Mom always made homemade of course. I had ravioli for the first time in my 20's thanks to him.
I will try the spam though, with mustard maybe.
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: livewire on July 20, 2010, 11:14:03 AM
LMAO!  You sound hesitant - that's ok!

It can be used where ever ham would be...  That's all it is - spiced ham.  I like it with mustard, because I love mustard.  LOTS of it.  But that's just me.  It would probably be really good with mayo and lettuce, too - maybe with a slice of tomato...  Okay, now I'm hungry!

It's good cut up in an omelet, with cheese, too!

 I took a McCormick Grill Mates packet followed the directions on the back and cooked it on the stove. It got lots of compliments though.
 I served  it with rice, corn, fresh cukes, fresh  mangoes & watermelon. It was great lunch so I hear,  but I think I picked up a flu bug and my tummy hurts so I might eat later. I know this seems like a huge lunch but because of schedules we eat our dinner early.

We did this on the smoker grill but it could be on any grill because we did it directly over the coals...

Grilled whitefish, grilled portabella mushroom and grilled peaches for dessert...

plus cantaloupe... but that wasn't on the grill ;) ;) ;)

No problem! They have some unbelievable deals! And I love how they name their sales... "Hangover Wednesday" and I've seen one called "Stupid Tuesday."  :D 

Ciolino's almost always has great stuff and it's CHEAP! We froze some of the .99/DOZ corn today (roasted). Going to go back for a few more dozen this week. I'm still planning to get some of the Smith corn at Parran's, just haven't made it out there, yet.

OMG, we have sooooo many cucumbers! Made quick pickles today (rice vinegar, curry, garlic, and fresh ginger), but we have tons to go. Also, it looks like every single tomato I have will ripen at once. I've never canned before, so I'm getting a crash course. Sure hope I don't poison anyone!

I leave out the green pepper, and add a can of drained kraut, and add a big can of tomato sauce in addition to the recipe.  I like mine with that touch of kraut, and the extra sauce makes it into much moister as the rice really soaks up liquids.  Quick to fix, enjoy!

BRD, Thank you so much for posting the 2 recipes. We are celebrating my moms boyfriends bday on Sunday and  I offered to take him to dinner and he instead requested my meatloaf on the smoker. Fine with me since I am getting off pretty cheap. lol. I am using both recipes as sides. Will let you know how they turn out.

Hope you all enjoy...   

both were excellent 8) 8) 8)

It smells terrible, sorry Dad. But I'm sure it's tasty if you like stuffed cabbage. I just never had.

I'm going to be making a stir fry with the kitten sauce BRD recommended. LOL


Yeah, and I thought she would get kitten sauce from Fuzz, not BRD. LOL


I sure didn't realize there was so much interest in kitten sauce...

just something I stumbled across while I was looking for something else (I find a lot of interesting "things" that way 8* 8* 8* )

And if you ever have a head cold, get some of their Hot and Sour soup.  It'll help clear your sinus's without being too spicy, and also acts like an oriental version of chicken noodle soup.

Too bad it won't reheat all that well.   :'( :'(

If you're without power I guess I could bundle up my smoker grill and fix ya something.

But just what would the neighbors say if they saw me at your place grilling while I was wearing nothing but an apron?   :o :o :o

All this talk of beans has me thinking...

One can each of black beans, cannelli, pinto and red beans drained.

Add one small yellow onion diced and a small green pepper diced (small diced pieces on both).

Add one bunch of parsley cleaned and chopped.

Mix all in a bowl and add a liberal amount of 'Garlic Expressions' salad dressing.

Cover, refrigerate and let sit 30  minutes.

Serve as side with your favorite grilled meat and cheesy grits.

Goes well with your choice of wine or beer.

I took a  break from canning and made some squash stew.
It's a family recipe and I am not even sure if there is a correct name for it. A family member made it up years ago.
 
 I  fried  1/2 lb. bacon &
            1 tube of Bob Evans sausage together. (sage)
             Then added 2 thinly sliced zucchini
              1/2 C. diced onion
               1 lg. diced tomato
                1 lg. can of tomato sauce
                  1/2 C. sugar
                   1/4 C. BBQ sauce
                   Salt & pepper to taste
                   I add onion & garlic powder to everything I cook as I did with this. I cooked it on low for about 30 min.

What's great about this dish is the color and the fresh veggies you use.

I get off work in an hour, what's your address?

As far as the recipe goes, you can add any flavor of BBQ sauce or sausage. Hubby likes the sage sausage  so that's what I use. Also you can add more or use less sugar, depending on your taste. It is a very YUMMY dish though any way.

 I cut about 12 cucumbers into quarters and sprinkle 1 1/2 TBLS. of Kosher salt over the pickles for about 2 hours , then rinse them with cold water. Put about 4 fresh cloves of garlic and fresh dill in jar. Add pickles.Then  boil  1 1/4 C white vinegar, 3/4 C water. 1 1/2 TLBS. kosher salt. Cool for 5 minutes then pour over pickles in jar and keep in fridge for 3 days. They stay fresh for 3 weeks.

I do the sweeter version with thin sliced cucumbers, vinegar, sugar, and celery seed.  Same basic method.

I usually freeze about half the batch....they seem to have that same crisp taste when thawed.

If you guys like refrigerator pickles, try the ones that Handsome made. He used rice vinegar, sugar, salt, and curry powder for the brine. Pour the brine into the jar on top of sliced cucumbers, matchsticked fresh ginger, and fresh garlic cloves. This was the first time we tried it; we opened one of the jars one night last week and we ate the ENTIRE jar in one sitting! Addictive! He made the same brine again tonight (did I mention that we have a million cucumbers from our garden?!), and this time he added a cayenne pepper--can't wait to try those! He also did some asparagus in the same brine (no hot pepper, tho). Yum!

Last night I made a chicken and vegetable medley with rice.

First I cut up and cooked the chicken in a bit of sesame oil and set it aside, then I cut up celery, yellow squash, carrots, onions, green onions, green peppers, mushrooms and fresh garlic and pan stir fried it with some sesame oil for a few minutes, then added some chicken broth. When it was good and hot I put the chicken back in and added a bit of flour and stirred until it thickened up the sauce.

For dessert it was strawberries over a hot biscuit with scoop of vanilla ice cream.

I got 8 lbs of strawberries the other day at Ciolino's, for $2.99 along with everything else I got for dinner, except for the chicken. Got 4 lbs left now, I think they will become freezer jam.

That sounds very good FB. You always come up with some great meals. The strawberries were very good at Ciolino's. I need to go back there for my tomatoes. My daughter bought a few when we were there and they were so sweet so I decided to freeze some. I have canned tomatoes before but it is a very messy job. I found some easy suggestions on-line and freezing them sounds clean. lol.

Years ago I grew some tomatoes in the backyard, and one of my tomatoes I declared was evil because it grew 2 horns on it. (Seriously it looked like a devil being red and having horns.)

I froze it so I could take a picture of it later, as I didn't have a camera available at that time. But after it defrosted it lost it's shape. I didn't even think about eating it, and never did get that picture..

So how would you freeze them? Would you do it like blueberries?
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: choff4 on July 30, 2010, 11:22:00 AM
Cut the stem off and drop in boiling water for about 30 sec. or when the skin starts to loosen. Put the tomatoes immediately into an ice water bath. Slide the skins off the tomatoes and then cut into halves or quarters. Put in ziplock bags, making sure all the air is out. Lay flat in freezer. The zipper bags work best for this procedure. These will last up to 1 year in freezer. Enjoy :)

I like about anything pickled...   

my grandmother pickled fish all the time because they didn't have electricity to freeze them...

my dad did a combo of hot yellow banana peppers and carrots...

once they were cured, you would just eat the carrots as all the pepper flavor had moved over to them 8) 8) 8)

OK  FB now that sounds like something hubby would love. I am not a big fan of ice cream. If I do eat ice cream it's vanilla or chocolate, Cotton candy or bluemoon but this is only  once or twice a year. When it comes to Calder's ice cream I love the eggnog ice cream. 

 I have some bananas in the freezer I need to use, Thanks for the idea FB. ;)

Blah, blah blah.  The Old Lady messed it up again.  No crock pot ribs today.

I told her if she gets chicken thighs and breasts for the grill, she better get charcoal.

Nope, not being a D**K, but she's grocery shopping now and we bought those ribs YESTERDAY

Agreed.  Usually we do Bean Soup after we've had a ham or such like at Easter.  Leftover ham bone that I don't shear too close cuz I know where it's headed.  After it's cooled it gets bagged, tagged, and into the freezer.   A week or so later when everybody's burned out on ham sammie's etc. we do the bean soup dicing up any leftover slices and that ham bone.

Usually just follow the directions on the bag of beans (prefer the overnight soak vs. quick fix method), add some onions etc. to the bone in the slow cooker/crock pot.

But as Ms. Choff indicates, you can usually find ham hocks and ham at your grocer, so you don't have to do up a whole ham
Title: Re: Dinner tonite
Post by: choff4 on August 02, 2010, 10:54:01 AM
Yes, I actually bought ham already diced at Meijers. One package was enough for soup and it was only $2.50. At Meijers you can find it over by the lunchmeat , hotdogs.  I even  bought some smoked turkey legs and added them also.

Wife and I were there Monday.

Now, I hate vendors or sales people hounding you, but in reference to the fact that ppl aren't spending money: this year I saw a big difference how the vendors dealt with potential customers.  As in: I'm just gonna sit here on my butt, if you gotta question YOU'LL ask me.

Now, the gals at Republic Homes were cool, that's how it works for that type of display.  Let us tour and then we'll ask questions.

And the tattoo guys did it right also, let me see the pictures then struck up a conversation.

And the Lincoln-Mercury gals were Suh-weet!  ;D   ;) And also very helpful when needing directions to the Ford display.

None of the above were pushy, but attentive to a prospective customer.

It just seemed that in comparison to previous years most vendors, including food vendors, had a "if you (want, question, need) my item you'll ask me" attitude.

Maybe that's just my impression.

OK, back on topic

******NOTE This is NOT a Fuzz bash******

So we FINALLY got to do the western style beef ribs in the slow cooker using Fuzz's recipe.

Wasn't sure since they were boneless beef ribs, but the pork baby backs we did in the crock pot turned out GREAT!

Did about 2-3 lbs. of beef ribs using the straight up 1 set recipe Fuzz posted.

Even about 4-5 hours into the 6-8 hours he recommended I was concerned.  Didn't look like enough liquid, beef don't have the fat that pork does.  And while I personally am a slow cooker, I do mine on the smoker, not in the crock pot. 

Wifey convinced me to quit checking it, leave it alone to get happy.  Ribs appeared to be getting rubbery, I was not looking foreward to this. :-\

Wifey made up some smashed taters (Idahoan, a packet style thing at Kroger.  Wifey don't like instant mashed taters, but will eat these).

Well, after 8-10 hours in the crock pot THESE WERE GREAT! ;D ;D ;D

Great recipe Fuzz,thanks for sharing it!

I used to cook a lot more in the crock pot when I would live away from home on new model car launches.  I used to get sick of eating out every night and would take the time in the morning to prepare the meal before I'd leave for the plants.  Was always nice to get back to the apartments with the entree already done.

No complications Bud.

As this is "recipe exchange" if it hadn't have worked out I would have posted it.  Not to point you out, but so that others may know a potential pitfall.  Or perhaps others like Ms. Choff or Monique may "adjust" it.

Crock pots do not generate a lot of cooking heat.....that is kind of the beauty of it.  Try not to remove the lid often,,,,,I may take mine off once to stir, and that's about it.  The "sweat" generated inside is full of the good cooking juices and seasoning.  I know it is tempting, but you will find less cooking time is the result.

Hummm......this is one I don't have written down and do by sight/taste.

Brown up a pound and a half of hamburger, crush a few cloves of garlic into it while on the stove top and add some Italian seasoning to it along with some pepper.

Dice up 5 or 6 whole juicey red ripe tomatoes (I'm getting all messed up here now), add a can of tomato paste (small one), throw in a beef bullion cube, crush a few more cloves of garlic in it, add maybe a little over a 1/4th cup of brown sugar, pepper to taste, throw in a drained can of mushrooms (or cut up some fresh buttons and add to it), dump some more Italian seasoning into it, I usually add some fresh picked oregano (Italian) to it.  Stir it all up real good, throw the lid on it, and set your crock pot to medium for about 6 to 7 hours.  I can usually tell when it is done by a dark brown liquid that rises to the top.

The Sweet Chili sauce is Franks Red Hot brand. The stores recently started carrying it and we have been using it on fish, chicken. It has a bite to it, but it  also taste sweet. Pretty tasty actually .

I made Szechuwan beef and broccoli.

Took two stalks of broccoli and cut up just the flowerettes, normally I'd cut up the stalk and make broccoli soup out of it, but not today. Also took a bunch of bok choy and cut it up. I used it all except for a small part near the bottom of the stalk. Did the same with the green onions. Also cut up a large vidalia onion, and about 8 ounces of white mushrooms.

I cut the beef (ranch steak was on sale) into very thin strips and then stir fried the beef in two tablespoons of oil, and 1 tablespoon of sesame oil and set it aside, then cooked all the vegetables, adding about 1/2 cup of szechuan stir fry sauce  until they were well done.

Then I added about a cup and a half of water and about 1/2 a cup of flour and stirred it until the sauce thickened up. Then added the beef and the mushrooms, stirred it well, got it real hot, then covered the dish and turned off the heat while I waited a few minutes for the rice to finish steaming.

Half pound of polish sausage
One decent size red potato
Half a vidalia onion
One Jalepeno
organic minced garlic

Slice potatoes and onion throw in a pan with garlic and a little olive oil on medium heat.  Cook until the onions just start to wilt and add sliced jalepeno.  Cook for about 5 minutes and add sliced sausage.  Cook until done.


Sorry I'm not more specific but I tend to eyeball stuff.

I love cheese and crackers as a snack, I prefer chicken in a biscuit crackers and extra sharp cheddar cheese.

I don't have a cheese slicer, but I have found that using the one side of the box grater works just as well, and cuts the cheese to just the right thickness.

It's a grill kinda day today!  Yup, steaks.  :P

But here's how the corn works, Shag is likely to urp on this with his dislike for (melted) butter.  We're getting the corn from Schultz's out toward Dundee.

Shuck the outer layers off 'til you're down to the fresh green layers and get rid of the silks.  Peel the remaining back but don't pull them.  Meanwhile, have been melting some butter and added some seasoning (we prefer a Creole based one) and mix that up.

Brush that melted buter and sesoning mix ALL OVER them corns.  Now take (at least) a slice of bacon and wrap it around that ear of corn.

Pull the husks back up and tie with a piece of cotton string and grill as normal.  8)

Well, the 'fridge died and we're waiting on the verdict on wether it's gonna be covered under warranty.  So right now we're living out of the son's old dorm room fridge and coolers, hoping to save what we can.

As the pack of hamburger that was in the freezer was thawing, last night was Hamburger Helper.

Likely it'll be something we can salvage.




p.s.  Be careful in this corner of the world on that ABC store and their extended warranties if you ain't on city water  :'(

They, and the people they send out, are highly aware of water issues around here and will tend to shut you down regardless of wether it's a water-related issue or not.

TY Ms. Choff

As the repair guy was over yesterday around noon and we're still awaiting the verdict on the possibility of repair under the extended warranty that we bought and paid for, I'll give them time to get back to us (some time, not days or weeks or years).

But this isn't the thread to rant on that.  I'll start a new thread if the verdict is negative   >:(, update here if they do us right. :)

Looks  like dinner will be with my youngest daughter. We are having fried bologna sandwiches. Her 19th  b-day was Monday and she got 3 or 4 restaurant gift cards from us and  I hinted she could take her  mom out to dinner tonight but she didn't pick up on that I guess. :D

I never buy extended warranties any more. 
They always backfired on me, and they are expensive.
I usually just buy decent quality, and take my chances.   :-\

We don't buy them either Live. Mainly for the same reasons you mentioned. Actually if anything needs repairing hubby has always been able to fix it. We did actually just buy a new computer this week and did buy the warranty. That reminds me they called and said we need to pick it up, it's in.. OOPS I forgot :P

No, but by judging from where you are on the electrical grid, you probably were not getting the proper current to your TV and have therefore voided any warranty whether implied or purchased.

Or sunspots. Yeah, that's it, blame it on the sunspots.

I am making stuffed zucchini.
A friend of mine made it before and I loved it. I am not sure if he actually had a real recipe or if this is one he made up.
 I am sauteing onions  fresh muchrooms, peppers together then
adding it to a box of prepared stuffing. Then putting it all in a cooked zucchini. Topping the zucchini with Provolone cheese and baking  it @ 350 until cheese is melted.
 He used fresh peppers from his garden which had a bite to them. I am using red peppers. I am thinking any pepper would be fine.

I have canned many fruits & vegetables and so far everything has went well. I absolutely love sauerkraut and could eat it every day. Actually if I sat down and thought about it I probably do.

 I was wondering if anyone has ever tried making it? My mom said my grandparents did many moons ago and it was difficult.Maybe she is trying to talk me out of it knowing I would ask her to come over and supervise. :D
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. :)

Ended up being Grinders from Dundee Country Kitchen.

We of course did this as carryout, cuz it was Friday.

The grinders were great for the price.  Freakin' huge! Thing is, you can upgrade from a 1/2 to a whole one for a lil bit more than a buck.  Do it! Then you'll have leftovers/lunch!

The steak one is really tasty.  The chicken club was IMHO OK. Those who need less spicy food may like this (not that the steak was spicy, just sayin').  I'll still chow it down, adding stuff to suit my taste.

The Greek Salad we split as a side was real good too, dang good spicy peppers, great bite to them.  Didn't skimp on the beets either so even when sharing enough for all to have some of them. 

Nice staff at the register too; attentive and friendly.  Lotsa "to go" menus available so you can always stop by and take 1 home and peruse it before deciding to stop in.

Haven't had enough chances to try many other things on their menu we just needed the change this week.

If you find yourself in the west part of the county (Shaggy) and need a change from MickeyD, BK, Wendy's, Subway, I'd at least give these guy's grinders a try.  Too early to vouch for anything else so far.

I am making  salmon patties with       fresh salmon , green and white onion, ckn n biscuit crackers, eggs, worchestire  sauce,  seasonings then fried in Olive oil.

I made Philly cheesesteak sandwiches and I used hot pepper cheese instead of the usual provolone. Sauteed onion and green peppers for the top. For sides they had corn and fresh peaches.
 
They enjoyed the meal. I wouldn't know, I have had a tummy ache for 2 days now. :(

CK my guess is that Fuzz has a job where the per diem covers more than just McD's for dinner.  Goddess knows that I'm looking forward to some good grub when I head to Chi-town in a few weeks.

Fair enough, last job I had where I was given a per diem, it was $30 but that was for lunch and dinner.

I believe I have $40 a day per diem, but that includes breakfast.  Unfortunately the place I love in Chicago is going to be too far of a drive to get to....damn you north Chicago burbs.

Oh, that sounds GOOD! 

How much brown sugar and vinegar?  And what - a couple bullion cubes?

I used about 1C of vinegar and 3/4 C of brown sugar. 1 Tlbs. Bullion.
After frying the bacon dump all but 1/8-1/4 C of grease. Then add the sliced cabbage and onions to the grease. Then add the bullion and the vinegar. Add the brown sugar a little at a time. If you like it sweeter you can add more sugar or if you prefer it tart add more vinegar. Salt & pepper to taste. Cook on med heat for about 45 min. or until cabbage is very tender.
It makes wonderful leftovers also.

Yesterday I made a big batch of minestrone, and it was OMG delicious! Great dish for harvest time, fresh and colorful. Handsome just heated some up to take with him in a Thermos for lunch today, and it smelled so good I can hardly wait to have some for my lunch, too.

I also tried a new recipe for baked chili rellenos, and it turned out fab, too! I had a good cookin' day!!
