Dumb dinner tonight, but satisfying-sloppy joes, potato chips and kosher dill pickles-of course while watching football. Lots of sodium, I know, thats what water pills are for.....lol!

    This looks delicious!!! 

     
    Thank you! I was pretty pleased with it.
     
    Tonight I threw together a breakfast casserole I kinda wanted to name "crack casserole" because I couldn't stop eating it, but settled instead for "Potato and Smoked Sausage Casserole". Grated potatoes, smoked sausage, mushrooms, green pepper, onion, Pepper Jack, cheddar, and eggs. I'm eagerly anticipating wanting a midnight snack!

      Not sure about the look of that one, Felix.
       
      Mine isn't any better.  I ate about half.  I always make too much pasta.

        When we make pasta we always make more then can be eaten in one meal!

            On Saturday I impulse-bought a couple of bison strip steaks and will be grilling them tonight.  I never eaten let alone cooked bison before and am looking forward to it.  At first I thought there was 1 steak in the package but it turned out to be 2, and I was somewhat surprised at how small they are.

                  Tonight I'm stepping outside the box and facing a food I swore I'd never eat. I'm making tofu tacos. I'm not going vegan or even vegetarian, just trying something new. I already like the fact a brick of it is only around 2 bucks.
                   
                  I'm going to mash up some firm tofu and saute it with onion and spices in olive oil, and put it in a flour tortilla with black beans (can of black beans, can of Ro-Tel, chili powder), shredded cabbage, a little sour cream, salsa verde, and pickled red onion (making it myself). I'm hoping it turns out good, have to wait and see.

                      I have to disagree.  Reheating pasta does not make it better the next day.  It makes it overcooked.

                        Not if you cook it correctly the first time. Just gotta add a bit of water the next day...

                            Aaarrrggghhhh! It's not the NCAA championship. The NCAA doesn't have a championship for Football Bowl Subdivision schools. Seems they don't want the student athletes at that level to miss class.

                              I was pretty sure what I was going to be watching was the BCS National Championship, but whatever.
                               
                              Dinner was reheated leftover tortilla casserole, and if anything it was even better the second time around.

                                It is the BCS National Championship.

                                    There's a championship?
                                     
                                    My dinner wasn't photogenic but it was quite satisfying.
                                     
                                    Out of the can.... Sardines in Louisiana Hot Sauce rolled up in to two warmed flour tortillas.
                                     
                                    Now I have to tell myself that I'm full and don't need anything else.

                                        I guess then we have to agree to dis-agree because re-heating the next day DOES bring out the flavor more!

                                          On Saturday I impulse-bought a couple of bison strip steaks and will be grilling them tonight.  I never eaten let alone cooked bison before and am looking forward to it.  At first I thought there was 1 steak in the package but it turned out to be 2, and I was somewhat surprised at how small they are.
                                          We were pretty happy with how they turned out; they had a nice, beefy flavor and I did my best to not overcook them...but I came close!
                                           

                                          MOOOOOO!

                                            Let us know.  For me it's a consistency thing.  I'd have to add crunchies like pickled onions for some bite.


                                            It turned out rather well, something I'll definitely make again, and since I have some vegan friends it's a meal we can enjoy together. I had it again for leftovers last night.
                                            The cabbage and pickled onion satisfied the crunch requirement nicely. I let the diced tofu sit in a container with chili powder, garlic powder, chopped onions, s&p, and some of the juice from the black bean mixture for half an hour or so while I made the pickled onions, and it soaked the flavor up quite well. Fried it good and hot until the onions softened, and that was it. It could have benefited from a little cilantro though. It was a cheap and filling meal.

                                                Threw together a pie/quiche sort of thing with ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, cheddar, spinach and eggs. Served with some mixed tropical fruit. It was darn tasty.

                                                        I often wonder how those who don't eat meat for "humane" reasons reconcile the fact that their vegetables get trucked to market over the bodies of bugs and wild critters that are crushed on roadways; roadways which are built over the habitats of animals, birds and insects, thus killing those critters. And then there's the fuel used by those vehicles that comes from sources resulting in the deaths of animals, fish, birds and insects. And of course the vehicles themselves, and their tires, come from manufacturing plants that were built on land where once there were live creatures that now are dead from loss of habitat.
                                                         
                                                        As I said, I wonder.
