I have a chicken drumstick/wing rack so I have 6 meaty drumsticks for the grill tonight. 2 of them are soaking in a mix of Panola Cajun hot sauce, seasoned salt, pepper, dried oregano, and dried sage and since I jabbed the meat with a fork I’m hoping that it picks up a lot of flavor.
I’ve been wanting to post in this thread for a long time. This is my dinner. Pulled Pork BBQ from a local place called Full Service BBQ. It was a family pack order consisting of :
1 pound of pork
3 sides (potato salad, beans, & mac & cheese)
5 sandwich rolls
5 chocolate chip cookies (not pictured)
1 container of BBQ sauce.
Sorry if this sounded more like a review, but wanted to give the place I got my dinner from recognition. If you ever pass thru Maryville TN, they are worth a try.
Rainy day…perfect for homemade chili and cold beer!
Felix hope you feel better soon
Dinner was queen city goetta dawgs grilled zpanish rice corn on the cob and my free sundae from Graeters
I understand, but even if I worked long hours in a pizzeria, I could still eat it 3 times a day, and save some for a midnight snack!!!!
You’d be surprised……..
I guess I’ll go work in a diner that ONLY sells liver and onions. I’d be safe there!!![:)]
I once cooked in a Toddle House. I haven’t eaten breakfast, lunch or dinner since.
Tonight? Blanched broccoli rabe sauteed with garlic, red pepper flakes and cannellini beans, served with hot and sweet sausage. Plus, crostini with olive oil, garlic and oregano.
Hey! That sounds like an Olive garden commercial.[;)][:D]
We usually get one walleye and one perch platter and split. MH said he didn’t want any of my walleye so I ate it ALL!! I did have a piece of perch……to hell with the diet on your birthday!!!! [}:)]
About those white plates…….well, initially I only bought two because you were always teasing/complaining about the old white plates, who when photographed looked upside-down. When MH’s son-in-law was in town on business he came to dinner one night so I had to get another white plate. While I was there I said to hell with it, I’m going to buy 6 more for a total of 8. (We don’t know 8 people we’d like to have for dinner.) We scrapped the old upside-down plates for these. But……..here is the kicker……..I got them at Kroger for…….$3.99 apiece!!!! The exact same plate at Crate & Barrel was over $20!!!!
I may have to try that one. I love the way it looks and sounds.
I opted for the Northern *cough* farmed, Costco Salmon variety slathered in Costco Pesto and sprinkled with pistachios. Costco did the slathering and sprinkling. I did the baking and it was moist throughout.
It was delicious! There were 3 of these pieces in the package and I could eat at least one more right now. But… I thought ahead and froze two of them. Must protect myself from me.
Next time I’ll purchase the salmon filet and a jar of the pesto and do it myself.
By the way… the apple sauce went perfectly with the salmon.
I used to cedar plank salmon once a week at my shop and I miss that! Doing it on the Big Green Egg is too much trouble for me.
I’ve decided it’s called “Creamy Pasta and Vegetables”, because that sounds infinitely better than, “bunch of stuff I found in the cupboard”.
Wow, we had pasta and vegetables too. I like your cream sauce !! Ours was an olive oil base with cut up tomatoes, zucchini, portobello mushrooms, diced carrots for sweetness, artichoke hearts, and spices my wife won’t tell me. Good, and our vegetarian guest liked it…but oh that cream sauce looks amazing. I see peas and corn and cut up tomatoes. I like the peas. They always go great with a cream sauce.
Believe it or not MH has never had roasted chicken!![:0] So I’m going to roast a chicken with crispy skin, garlic mashed and haricots verts.
Why would Michael eat Chicken, he grew up with a Lobster roll in one hand and a Basket of Fried Clams in the other………….
This is true. Helluva lot better than chicken!!! He’ll have to suffer through broiled cod tonight.
Tonight, gnocchi with a Bolognese sauce and hot and sweet Italian sausage.
We also made the penguins for tomorrow nights appetizer Christmas Eve – we shaped a cheese ball into a skating rink and are going to put the penguins on and around it – (for the kids)
Then we’re doing bacon wrapped asparagus – pork crostini – mini phyllo shells with crab and artichokes – Gazpacho shooters with shrimp – mini Beef Wellingtons – cheese, olive and marinated tomato skewers – mini crab cakes with Remoulade. Roasted pecans and Amaretto cookies – Baklava and eggnog with spirits.
This year we’re not doing the traditional turkey and dressing with all the trimmings for Christmas Day – instead it’s going to be Bloody Marys and brunch about 2pm – omelettes, bacon, hashbrowns, pancakes, fruit.
Christmas night – Prime Rib – Duchess Potatoes – Salad – Merlot.
The weather is supposed to be frightful the day after Christmas so I’m thinking a pot of Chicken & Dumplings or Beef Stew would be good.
