BackRhodes.  You are correct as my burgers are sorta ordinary but I made them with chuck, sausage, onions, chili powder, onion powder, chili powder, jalapeno and they came out quite tasty and I also oven fried them.
 
Knoxville is a sausage challenged area and I bought the Johnsonville Beef Hot Links and they were very good deep fried in the Cool Daddy.
 
The frites were outstanding and I made a dipping sauce for the frites with thousand Island and my favorite hot sauce Chorizo.

Thanks, Greymo!  My mother is kind of hinting at what she'd like for her Mother's Day meal and of course it's not what I had in mind.
 
She likes when she has take home food when the meal is over.
 
Tonight will be a Nutrisystem dinner for me.  I'm back on except for a couple dinner engagements that I can't bow out of because they're for me.

Thanks...driving is possible when I'm IDS (In Deep Sh*t) with a firm throw pillow behind me to take pressure off the lower lumbar...no driving today so I can drive tomorrow. I used to have low, slinky 2 seat roadsters, back when I lived on paved streets, but those are too hard to get in & out of...pickup trucks and SUV's are much easier for me...
 
Dinner tonight has yet to happen...I want something more than popcorn, but the heat is off in the cookshack where it's 38* and getting colder...do I want to suit up in a parka to cook tonight...???  Nights like these make me want to spend as little time as possible in the cookshack...
Maybe popcorn and some video fun is what it'll be tonight...I need to transfer some of my cooking shows from the DVR onto DVD disk - stuff like DDD, Good Eats, America's Test Kitchen, etc...gotta make room on the DVR so I can record even more stuff...it's crammed full of mostly educational stuff...
 
That's it...Popcorn...and I'll doctor up the melted LOCAL butter with some garlic or chili powder...
 
Speaking of "doctoring" I was wondering what I was going to do with the last portion of Guy Fieri BBQ sauce...it's fairly bland stuff,  possibly made for little old ladies, so here is my formula for some damn good sauce...
 
1 part Guy Fieri bbq sauce
2 parts OT's bbq sauce
3 parts Kinders bbq sauce
1 capfull of liquid hickory smoke
 
Mix well...it's SO good it doesn't last long...I need to make another batch
 
Option: 2 or 3 dashes of tobasco sauce
1 tsp onion powder and 1 tsp corriander powder (they work well together)

Tonight I'm working, so I'll either grab something from the concession stand or stop at the local Mexican drive-thru on the way home.

Nutrisystem chili with beans along with the required protein.  Think Huevos Rancheros if you think it's a strange combination.  (I would have killed for a tortilla)

My mother has been hounding me to make a recipe she saw in the Los Angeles Times.
 
It's a cioppino for some restaurant in California.
 
I made a pot for her and left enough for myself to enjoy a bowl over capellini:
 

 
The seafood used is scallops, shrimp and swordfish.
 
PM me for the simple recipe if you'd like.  I'll add red pepper flakes the next time for myself.

Sounds PERFECT to me...what time are you serving...???
 
"Old style home cooking" is overlooked by some folks in pursuit of fancier dishes, but I agree...and chuck is where the flavor is...a no fuss crock pot meal is something to look forward to...
 
In the old days "way back" a Coozie (chuck wagon cook) had limited resources, yet had to turn out meals that were simple, filled up a belly, didn't croak the cowhands, and yet had a bit of variety to them (not easy to do during a 6 week cattle drive with no Safeway for suppies)...
 
The one luxury the Coozies didn't have was time...it was a rare chuck wagon wasn't on the move several times a day...and a smart Coozie would hand sort beans before putting them to soak...
 
We're lucky these days...we have it so much easier...in terms of an electric crock pot, we are living the fantasy dreams of our ancestors...as in "Gee, I wish I couild get this to cook itself"...or..."Gee, I wish I could go 60 MPH"...

Italian Sausage - Redneck Italiano Reggiano - Stampede packing company, Kalispell, MT...
 
I've never seen these...4/1 package...fairly mild...almost too mild...
 
They have cooking instructions for pan fry, and hot water, but when it comes to open flame or broiler the package says "you're on your own"
 
Nice graphic on the package of a "good ole boy" in overalls, and a pig, sitting on a log looking at a full moon...
 
The package was more interesting than the sausage itself...
 
I don't think I'll buy another of these, but I at least wanted to try them...

Prime rib, chicken rolled around sage stuffing, cabrese salad, salad bar, smoked salmon on toast points, some kind of feta/fish spread on toasted baguette slices, steamed broccoli, roasted vegetables (red potatoes, carrots, parsnips), and an optional pasta bar (they custom-make you a plate using whatever pasta, vegetables, meats and sauces you'd like). For dessert, chocolate fountains with about a dozen different things to dip in them.

The pork chops were those very thin, sandwich looking, boneless slices so I pounded them some more, cut them up to make them look more substantial and did a wine and chicken stock gravy.
 
I'm finding that I'm loving capers.
 
Served with potato blintzes which could have used some grilled onions.
 
Should have opened some applesauce to go with everything but just now thought about it.
