My condolences on the loss of your friend, Felix.  Was this one of his favorite meals?

Thank you. The meal had nothing to do with him, actually...I just wanted cheesy, calorie-laden, fat-rich gooey comfort food.

Hey, on behalf of the regular participants in the Cincy-area thread I just wanted to concede the "crown" for "longest thread on Roadfood" to this thread in advance, since I am sure this one will get to 100 pages well before the Cincy thread given the current pace of growth of each
 
I have to admit - although I come to Roadfood more to learn about commercial/public eateries than home cooked meals, I enjoy checking this one out every now and then.

First day off since Wednesday is also my last day off until next Monday, so I cooked. Decided to call this one "easy cheesy chicken casserole"...Stove Top stuffing underneath, chicken, bacon, peas, carrots, green beans, cheese, couple of cream soups over the top. Looks like hell, tastes fantastic.

Re:What's For Dinner TONIGHT...??? 2012/09/25 20:29:27 (permalink)

I finally made it to the 5¢ Diner.  It's been highly touted by many and being in Downtown Los Angeles, it just isn't  located in an area that I frequent.  It used to be that nothing was out of the way for me, but now with the price of gas I choose my destinations carefully.
 
Anyway, I had to take a friend, Karen to the eye doctor that was very close to Downtown.
 
We usually (read always) go to Phillipe's when in that area, but I remembered 5¢ Diner.
 

 
The first thing that amazed me was that I didn't have to find a parking lot.  There were meters on the street and there were a few that were available.  Amazing!  We parked right in front.
 
After looking at the menu which seemed meager to me I chose the Low-rider Burger. 

There were other burgers, sandwiches and breakfasts on the two-sided piece of paper, menu. 

(Tip to those that print out menus on copy paper...
If they're dirty and wrinkled, print off a few new ones.  Do not hand them to patrons)

 
Oh, I was almost fooled by the Smac 'n Cheese until I saw...  tomatoes.  Don't mess with my macaroni and cheese.
 
The Low-rider was a beef patty topped with a whole, seeded Hatch Chile, Pepper Jack Cheese, pickled onions, tomato and a Dijon Mustard sauce.
 

 
I gave the tomato slice to Karen who added it to her huge Patty Melt.
 
The burger was really a thing of beauty but I found it was lacking in flavor.  I couldn't taste the chile, cheese or onions.   Maybe it was just me because one of those flavors should have stood out if not all of them. 
 
I also ordered a Mint Lemonade, made by them that I loved.
 
I also ordered something  to go; two of what first made the 5¢ Diner newsworthy.  They sell maple bacon doughnuts.  I should have ordered one.  I forgot to take a picture. 
 
To describe it best, it was kind of like a glazed doughnut topped with bacon pieces.  I didn't taste the maple flavor at all.  Had it been a good glazed doughnut I would have liked it.  The problem was they started with a doughnut (are you sitting?)...  that I didn't like. 
 
I've been whining about wanting to go there for a couple of years.  There wasn't anything else on the menu that will take me back there.

Last night we had bone in grilled chicken breasts marinated in McCormick's Mexican Fiesta marinade and I have to say they were really good - not at all over salted or spiced/herbed.  We had a simple salad with them.
 
Tonight we decided on easy so we had grilled beef filets with baked potatoes.

Greg, the doughnut looks much better in the picture as does the burger.

Mar has mentioned that Nickel Diner almost every time we had to go downtown.  I'm glad she has finally gotten it out of her system.
 
The maple bacon doughnut was horrendous.  Bacon should never be anywhere near a doughnut, I don't care if that's what they're known for.  I don't care for maple either, so it was a complete washout for me.  I might have enjoyed it more if the doughnut itself was good, but it was not.

Burritos! Set up a burrito bar, complete with veggie and omni options, chips and salsa, and virgin margaritas. :)

I don't have to work until 8:30 tonight, so I cooked! Guinness beef stew with cheese-herb dumplings and Guinness bread. It was amazing.

I finally made it to the 5¢ Diner.  

I've been whining about wanting to go there for a couple of years.  There wasn't anything else on the menu that will take me back there.


I suggested this place for a Hwy 101 food safari trip...almost made it there but I was on a tight schedule and wanted to stay near Union Station...
 
I think I looked at the menu online, but that was many months ago...I don't remember anything jumping off the menu...
 
I learned about it on DDD...

Dinner will be a super burger...half pound 80/20 on a toasted 6" seeded bun, seasoned with my own dry seasonings mix, and topped with my bbq sauce blend:
 
1 part KINDERS bbq sauce (Antioch, CA)
1 part OT's bbq sauce (Walnut Creek, CA)
1 part J LEE ROY's Dipping Sauce (Oroville, CA)
1 fl oz liquid smoke
 
Mix well...use warm or cold...yummmmm...
 
I try to make my dry seasonings and sauces in as large a batch as possible...my current stash of dry seasoning should last until St Paddy's day...I use liberal amounts of the bbw sauce concoction, so I need to re-supply at least once a month...
 
A few eeks ago I was the cook at a neighborhood shindig, and my bbq sauce was featured...I loaded my gas grill up into a utility trailer, strapped it down with truckers cargo straps, and didn't drive fast so folks could admire my mobile bbq set up... (have grill, will travel?)...
 
Many years ago I made a portable chuck wagon box for a van...I designed it to be as authentic as a novice wood butcher like myself could do without shedding blood...
 
I greatly admire the COOZIE"S of the west, and while that term has morphed into a name for a drink holder, a REAL Coozie (coosy, coosey) was the chuck wagon cook, and we all know the cook IS the most important key person in camp...
 
Maybe I'll build a chuck wagon box for my utility trailer, and make  a hoop and canvas covered wagon cover...maybe...
 
right now it's dinner time...we're in a record setting heat wave...it was 105* today, 64* overnight last night...

Only having a half-day off, and having made a vat of stew yesterday, we had the exact same meal as last night. It works.

Been cooking a lot lately.  Maybe I can start contributing to this thread, my favorite for wasting time. 
 

 

 
That's ham, fried potatoes, broccoli mac & cheese and baked acorn squash.  :)  Don't mind the date.  I hate this camera and hope to get a new one soon.  Don't even want to bother learning to change the date.

Darn rules.  You're a two year member!
 
Post some more and you'll be able to post pictures.  This thread is the perfect place for it.
 
I had a California Roll and cucumber salad from How Do You Roll.  Very good!

Thanks mar!  I've read plenty here, but it's mostly been to pass time.  I am a student and mother of 4, ranging from 12 down to 4 months.  I can't do schoolwork, type and take care of a baby too easily, so I browse, besides I don't get to travel enough to report much :(  I look forward to contributing more.

You have Kings Hawaiin in Michigan?
 
They're made not far from here unless they have plants all over the country which I guess could be the case.
 
I fried up an onion, added sliced chicken apple and brie sausage (Not Aidell's) and scrambled it into eggs.
 
The freezer is full and there's nothing to eat.  I have to figure that one out.

Yup, we've got King's Hawaiian. Not every store, but a few of them carry them. They're expensive if they're not on sale, though. 
 
I heated up the rest of the beef stew so it was liquid enough to portion out for freezing, so we ate that for dinner. Next week I'll start cooking again.

Grilled brisket and Swiss cheese sandwich.   Sliced the sandwich in half because the older we get the less we eat..........green salad on the side.  yummy
