Happy McSunday!

I had to put my glasses on this morning to look at the big chocolate bar finish!

    Haha Mar -- and I'm envious of that shake!
     
    NJ/Texan - You were lucky to have AYCE samples.  At Santa Cruz you buy tasting kits with a small cup and 5 tickets that you gave to the competitors whose chowder you want to try.  My friend and I tried 10 different chowders.  I guess if we'd gotten an extra kit it truly would have been AYCE for me, too. 
     
    Tonight I had homemade smoked salmon from my new stovetop smoker!  Man--was it moist and tender, too.  This smoker is going to be fun!

        Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans. I can't wait.

          We're going to a local restaurant for the Monday shrimp AYCE special.  They're not very large (but larger than "popcorn") but the breading was recently changed for the better.

            Spaghetti with home made meat sauce with onions, garlic and cole slaw, brocolli with cheese sauce, garlic bread and white wine. 
            And prehaps a cocktail before dinner

              My son Kyle expressed a desire to try raw fish for the first time today! He shared Katie's and my sushi/sashimi dinner. So far so good! he seems to really like it!

                  Tonight is what's left of my sausage and potato skillet from Friday. I would've done that yesterday, but I thought it was gone. Turns out it was hiding behind the big bowl of coleslaw.

                      Agnes, it's always better to introduce a growing boy to a food less costly.
                       
                      We have a Mitsuwa close by.  Thanks for reminding me.
                       
                      So far I had a hard boiled egg and a Michelob Ultra.

                        I know! You would think I would have learned my lesson when we thought it was so cute that my oldest was enjoying lobster and steak at age two.

                          This was on sale at my local Kings Supermarket so I am giving it a try.

                          Cooking it in my crock pot. I'm going to make Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage and little potatoes.

                          I'll post what I think about it when finished.

                            Mar!

                            Speaking of eggs...I remember your Joe Jost's pickled-egg posts and I found this recipe. I'm gonna give it a try this week.

                              I added a bowl of Crispix to my evening meal a couple hours after finishing the beer.
                               
                              I like Joe Jost's.  Their eggs are a bit to vinegar-y for me but with a beer they're great.
                               
                              If it was near by I'd be there often.

                                OK, Here is my Guy Fieri's  corned beef results. Great taste, although not enough fat for my liking. I was sure to add enough broth to the sliced meat. I made little potatoes, Brussels sprouts and some carrot slices to serve with it. I will, though, enjoy a Rueben using the meat and later some corned beef hash. I bought rye bread and good Swiss cheese to go along.

                                    I am now in serious need of corned beef. Luckily, it's on sale this week.
                                     
                                    Dinner tonight was leftover faux chili, because I forgot I took fish out of the freezer that I meant to make. S'ok...it was even better after sitting a couple of days, although still nothing like real chili.

                                      Agnes - that looks awesome!!!  I want to try making pastrami with some corned beef using my new stove top smoker, and your pictures are inspiring.

                                          Wind storm and rainy here in South Jersey - homemade turkey noodle soup and patty melts.

                                          But now I want corned beef and cabbage - come on March 17th!

                                            I can never wait until March 17th! When I was a child a family on our block had a pasta dinner for all of the children in the neighborhood every March 17th. The Dad was of Irish heritage but the Mom was, from Italy, Italian. She missed the celebrations she remembered as a child in Italy for St. Joseph's Day. I don't know how or why she decided on having the celebration on St. Patrick's day but it is a fond memory. I will never forget that delicious pasta with sauce and those Italian pastries! Nice memory. Maybe I'll make pasta this year in honor!

                                              Dinner was full of fail tonight, other than my southern-style green beans (with bacon and onions, in a reduced vinegar-sugar sauce). This was peanut-crusted tilapia, and while it tasted OK the cooking method was so wrong it was almost laughable. We ended up eating tilapia without the peanut crust because it was so burned it crumbled to dust when you touched it. Oh well...win some, lose some.
                                               
                                              If I was ces1948, I would return the ingredients to the store and demand a refund or replacement food at no cost, because I didn't like how it turned out.

                                                When your name is Colleen you get to celebrate every day. Until the 18th...when it goes back for something Italian.

                                                    Great looking corned beef!  Ours is in the refrigerator to be eaten prematurely, maybe this Friday after tomorrow's shopping for the vegetables.
                                                     
                                                    Tonight's dinner was tacos dressed with what was left of my Salsa Negra, jalapenos and onions from La Salsa.  Served with fried potatoes and onions just in case I didn't get enough carbs.
                                                     

                                                     
                                                    In this case, it's all about the sauce.

                                                      This was on sale at my local Kings Supermarket so I am giving it a try.

                                                      Cooking it in my crock pot. I'm going to make Brussels sprouts instead of cabbage and little potatoes.

                                                      We cook corned beef in the crock pot, too.  It's great for weekdays!

                                                        I want to know what cut a "round flat" is.

                                                          chefbuba, I wonder too. All I know is I don't prefer the thin flat cut. I don't know if his company markets that. As I said it was on sale or I wouldn't have tried it. Very good flavor though. I made a Rueben for myself already and will do hash this weekend. Last year I chose an expensive brand(wish I could remember which) instead of the usual Freidrich brand(the cheaper one usually) and was disappointed.
                                                          @Brad, Nice & Easy, you mean I could have done my hair too! Missed opportunity on my part!

                                                            Tonight's dinner was Jack in the Box tacos.  As much as I love them, these were not good.  They skimped on the lettuce and overcooked them, making them very hard.
                                                             
                                                            But...  they were selling a shake I've never of at Jack in the Box or anywhere else for that matter... Cinnamon.  It was OMG Good!
                                                             
                                                            But only for a few sips.  THen that fabulous flavor got old.
