What's for dinner tonight?


Mello Yello wrote:

Mom called it Goulash

Browned Burger, Sauteed Peppers, Sauteed Own-yawns, Rotels with Green Chilies and Large Elbow Mac.  I top mine with grated Jalapeno Jack, couple of cachunks of Louisiana Red and a sprinkling of Slap Yo Mama


A good ol' Southern American staple, that.  A number of varieties, but all along the same lines - had some just last week.  Gonna do something with thin cut porky chops tonight, but I ain't going out to the grill, probably do 'em in the oven with sliced taters and cream of mushroom soup; it's too hot to go stand on the patio and tend the grill with thin cuts of meat on it - 112 (45) out there right now, 1520 hrs.

Even tho the taste was grrrreat, I don't think I'll use this process (Spatch**** Chicken) again.  I had much rather do a beer butted bird and not have to baby sit it for 2 hours plus brining the night before and basting during the grilling. no  The meat was moist and very flavorful but not worth the effort IMHO.

5 weeks to go then its spring.summers just round the corner. It's been unbelievably warm here. Middle of winter and its 20 deg Celsius. Unheard of here. Last night (Sunday) as you guys know I cook for my family dinner and pudding. Friday was one of my grand kids 4th birthday. Harry and I both share the same middle name of Thomas. My dad was Thomas as well. On your birthday you get to choose what you want for dinner. Harry is easy, chicken wraps is his fave. My son said he wanted apple crumble for pudding. But we all know that's my sons fave pudding. I still made it with home made custard and cream. Everyone left with a full tummy,lol. My wife pinky and I love sundays with the family.

Even tho that bird the other day was pretty large for my first Spatch**** endeavor, none of the meat went to waste. What we didn't eat the first couple days then got turned into evening Burrito, evening Chicken Diablos, Cat Food (only the drum stick meat, so don't get excited) and today I finished it up with some deboned thigh meat chopped and then sauteed with Rotels and Green Chilies. Made a platter full of Quesadillas and now I'm ready to do battle again.

Don't know if I was just hungry or if these were really that tasty but I sure enjoyed every bite.

Have a great weekend, Y'all

Sigh..... I wish my Baby was seven again; she is going to be 13 in September, and has turned into one giant case of attitude and sass. Wish your Little Lady a "Hippo Birdy" for me, too.

Mrs. Rr, Miss Bella, and I went out to "Cabo", a pretty good Mexican restaurant inside one of the local casinos last evening. Here in Lost Wages, we have Downtown, where the original "Old Las Vegas" is, most often called "Fremont Street" these days, then we have "The Strip", which is the part of Las Vegas that most people recognize with the really big casinos and hotels and other attractions, then there is "regular" Las Vegas, a real city and hometown, where the people who make it all go live. In the "regular" town, there are "local" casinos that range in size from about the size of a Walgreen's Drug Store to some that rival some big ones in other parts of the country, and most of them have a number of dining choices in them, really decent for the most part, and a few of truly high class. Cabo is one of these. Well, Belle was pissed at me because I made her leave her MineCraft game, so Bob and I had a pouty dinner companion; she got herself into such a stew that she developed a headache and a bad stomach, and went to bed early when we got home. Oohhh, she's developing that tactic early.

Cooked a pot roast this morning, probably going to "pull" it for tacos or sammiches, or, for me, I'll just eat the meat open faced style, maybe even without bread.

Breckie and not Dinner this time.  Woke up hongry fer some homemade biscuits so I got out the pastry cutter, ingredients and started scratching out some Cat Heads.  Only part about this way that is more effort is cutting the butter into the flour with the cutter but IMHO I think it's well worth the trouble.  Slit 2 in half - - Suckle Busters Jalapeno Jelly on one, Suckle Busters Blackberry Preserves on one, Wild Maine Blueberry Jam on one and Peach Preserves on the last half.  Each was as good as the other

OH, I also added a dollop of sour cream to each one. :tup:

I'd be happy with that for my lunch. I hardly ever have lunch though due to my reflux. But I'd make an exception for that.

Fish for us today also

Over on Texas BBQ site we have been laughing about how most couples ask each other what they want to eat and the answer is usually "oh, I don't care (but you do) what ever you are hungry for is fine with me" (yeah right)  Well todays lunch should have been a no brainer but unfortunately it ain't dat simple boyz - - -just fry some fish, okra and nuke some corn but that would have been too easy - - - by the time I got lunch finished I had dirtied up every plate in the cabinet and half of the pots.

However, it was deeeeeeelishous.
Wiffy had "battered" fish and fried okra. Booorrriiinnnggg

I had blackened Tilapia, snitched some of her fried okra, a nuked ear of corn, pickled okra and a veggie/fruit salad - - - there were more flavors coming outa dat kitchen that cats at a seaside dumpster. :laughing7::D:lol:

The ODD Couples Dinner

I had picked up a couple of small marbleized beef steaks at HEB and wanted to grill some today.

So I told the Wiffy "I'm gonna defrost a steak to grill Wednesday.  Do you want me to defrost you a steak or pork chop?"

She replied "Grill me a Hamburger"   

So today the Odd Couple Award goes to we'uns and our appetite. confuse

Em, to your statement above about "I don't Care". For me, that's true - as long as I don't have to cook. As a kid I grew up eating a meat of some sort, taters, and a veggie or a casserole - tuna, SOS*, ground beef, etc. -  if my dad was out of town. If my DW sticks to something like that, I'm always happy though she does 'experiment'. There are a few things that I WILL NOT eat - liver, sweetbreads, tripe and  mutton top the list. Veggies - no acorn squash or kale. I love salads unless it's preceded by the word, Waldorf. Apples in mayo as the basis for a salad are downright wrong. I cannot eat celery - somehow became allergic after a tooth infection and even the smell gags me now.

Meller's Sheeken Diablos

Here's a step by step pictorial on my lunch cook and the only thing I'll do different is to cook them in the oven or on the grill instead of the microwave. Nukin'em made them come out less than tender :(
Ingredients:
1 large par-boiled jalapeno, veins and seeds removed and then cut into quarters long ways
4 pieces of cream cheese
4 pieces of leftover spatch**** chicken
4 pieces of bacon
Fischers roasted raspberry chipotle sauce (sometimes I use Suckle Busters Chipotle Sauce)
Pico de Gallo

I love corn so much, my wife grows it here at home. Kids love it done this way. Shuck it then rub butter over and salt it. Wrap in tin foil and cook on the BBQ. Nice side for a BBQ.

Rest looks good too meller.

Your secrets safe with me.lol, I too cheat sometimes. When the family is here on a Sunday and I do corn, I cheat , but there's normally 10 pieces of corn cooked. Big plastic bowl, butter n salt , cover in film, zap 8 minutes. Yummy. Can't wait for summer to do them on the BBQ again. 2 weeks until spring, summers coming.

Haven't used my Rosie Daley Cookbook since the Big "D" so I dusted her off today and did some Un-fried French Fries and Un-fried Taters.  Everything is done in the oven and both are finished at the same time.  Plenty of taste and healthy also - - - Woo Hoo

Been quiet a bit here, lol, no idea about dinner yet, last 2 nights we have been out, both to curry places all by chance,lol. Laughed last night as 2 of the main meals our friends all commented that my home made onion bhajees and my tandoori chicken were not as good as mine. I have too agree it wasnt up to my quality. Rest was awesome food.
No real Indian food lovers here?
