    Mrs. Chicken and I are planning to eat at Hacienda Real in Janesville, WI tonight with a $50 gift card I picked up at half price last year.  The online reviews are generally positive and my younger daughter likes it.

      Brad, Enjoy!
       
      Greg, your chicken soup looks exactly like Progresso right out of the can.
       
       
      We eat Progresso now and then and dress it up with extra goodies.
       
      Here's my home made:

              It's been VERY cold here too!  I wish it would warm up a bit!  My heating bill is going to be SKY HIGH this month!

                I roasted some ridiculously thick boneless pork loin chops, served with baked sweet potatoes (butter and S&P only) and Green Giant teriyaki frozen vegetables.
                 
                I get it, but it makes me giggle when y'all from Southern California talk about it being cold.

                  We weren't built for the cold!  It was in the *shudder* 40s!

                    It was 11 degrees here this morning when I woke up. The perfect start for a day. Unfortunately, it heated up a lot and by afternoon is was pushing 36.

                      mar. I know, that's why it's funny for me! Like I said, I get it, but I find myself thinking...holy crap, if it was all the way up in the 40's I would have been able to wear just my hoodie when I went out today! As it was, we never got above about 25 today.

                        Buffalo Pork Chops - Baked Potatoes - Salad.  We've been in the upper 20's at night and upper 30's in the day here for a while - and the 10 day forecast shows much of the same - very unusual for us.

                              I will trade you temps.  We were 6 above this morning!

                                The recent Roadfood survey made me aware of pork and sauerkraut as a New Year's tradition, which I'd never heard of.  Can someone who does this please share the background of it and where it's prevalent?  Thanks!

                                 
                                It is of German origins, my family usually made pork roast and saurkraut or smoked sausage and kraut. It is usually found in the rust belt and heavy German populated places.

                                  Thank you Michael, Ann, Chris, and Cajun!  I'm going to have to try that cast iron skillet method and try the pork chop/roast and sauerkraut.

                                    Guests for dinner tonight.  They want to watch the deer in the back yard feeding.  Grilled rib eyes, boiled shrimp, baked potatoes and salad.

                                        We went to Johnny Rocket's for dinner.
                                         
                                        I didn't pay attention to prices.
                                         
                                        Two burgers and shakes.  $31.66
                                         
                                        The burgers came with fries and I was charged a $1 upcharge for switching to sweet potato fries.
                                         
                                        Sharon was upcharged $1.29 for the cheese on her burger.
                                         
                                        The burgers were good and not great, but $31???
                                         
                                        Not sure I'd go back.

                                          When they opened the first Johnny Rocket's here I opened the door to go in and the music (?) hit me like a two-by-four across the head. I have not tried to go back.

                                            The music was not an issue here.  It was on, but not loud.  However, I think we were paying for it.

                                              I threw together a bunch of stuff and called it "layered tortilla casserole" for lack of something more creative. It was darn tasty, and since it was an entire 9x13, I've put three meals' worth in the freezer in addition to what I left in the refrigerator for leftovers.

                                                There used to be a Johnny Rockets on the main drag in Del Mar and we went once to try it..........BIG mistake!  Food was atrocious and the prices were sky high!

                                                  We went earlier to the movies to see James Bond's Skyfall and afterwards went to Acapulco for dinner!

                                                    As you posted this 11 hours ago, I hope you haven't met an untimely end from those plague-riddled condiment cups.

                                                        My niece chose a Korean BBQ restaurant to celebrate her acceptance in to Boston U.
                                                         
                                                        It was no where near the quality of food that Park's serves, but it was still a fun experience.
                                                         

                                                         

                                                         
                                                        It was so strange.  While the food was cooking the wait staff would come by and nonchalantly shut off the burners.  We'd just turn them back on.  I think they were trying to prolong our meal without using their gas.
                                                         
                                                        The banshan offerings were meager and not good at all.

                                                        What was fun was trying to find the place at night.  I knew the name and the approximate proximity (two x's in one sentence!) but when driving at night (with my mother and Sharon in the car giving me instruction) ...when all the neon signs were in Korean, it proved challenging.

                                                          The recent Roadfood survey made me aware of pork and sauerkraut as a New Year's tradition, which I'd never heard of.  Can someone who does this please share the background of it and where it's prevalent?  Thanks!


                                                          It is of German origins, my family usually made pork roast and saurkraut or smoked sausage and kraut. It is usually found in the rust belt and heavy German populated places.

                                                           
                                                          My partner grew up in Peoria Illinois and I grew up 45 miles west of Chicago when it was rural out here. I never had this, but loved it  when my partner first made it for me. But,  now my partner is vegetarian and using tofu kielbasa, I know you won't believe it, but it tastes the same. We add lots of kraut and caraway seeds.

                                                            I threw together a bunch of stuff and called it "layered tortilla casserole" for lack of something more creative. It was darn tasty, and since it was an entire 9x13, I've put three meals' worth in the freezer in addition to what I left in the refrigerator for leftovers.



                                                             
                                                            This looks delicious!!!
