Two homemade Cheesburgers- pattie's cooked in my George Foreman grill ( I SWEAR by that thing!) roasted hamburger bun bread ( just doesn't taste the same on regular bread,) crisp lettuce, onions, & GRATED cheese on top- no sandwich cheese! Side dish of COLD cole slaw. washed down with Luzianne iced sun tea. May cheat & have my Sunday dessert early & dip into the cookie dough ice cream....................

job perk, outside all day and alone, so I don't even have to keep track

tonight looks like another tri-tip on the q, as they were hella cheap.

looking forward to three days of non cooking for the holidays, just show up, help out and grub!

Tonight I am making sauteed chicken thighs with a tarragon/mushroom cream sauce over some egg noodles. I still have some fresh tarragon in my herb garden. What are other people making tonight?

New York strips on the grill, sauteed' mushrooms, baked potato, homemade salad and veggies on the side. Have to grill before there is a foot of snow on the thing!! No garage to store it in.

Isn't it great to be eating again? Alcohol gave me all my food needs. On my drinking mornings..okay, everyday... I could eat really fatty stuff like fried eggs and bacon with of course vodka. Sigh. But, not anymore. I made a great spicey African chicken recipe over the weekend and just ate till I needed a wheelbarrow to take me home!
Gratitooooood

Foooooood.

Or as long as the matches and charcoal are dry and there's lighter fluid, gasoline, kerosene, or a blowtorch around :-D

Anybody getting creative for Thankyday? I mean, cooking something besides turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie, etc?

I know I'm not... I caved to peer pressure this year. Made the big grocery run last night.

Actually I'm not cooking this year. My sister-in-law wants to do it all. I'm going to bring some appetizers that are on bread with bacon and cheese.

Traditional here also. We just had work Thanksgiving lunch and the thought of eating it again makes me want to hurl. (sorry, TMI)

I think it would be neat to pick another country and cook the foods that are traditional for them over their holidays.

Mmmm.. rack of lamb! One of my favorites. Also marinated butterflied leg of lamb on the grill. Why didn't I think of lamb? Everytime I have lamb, I think "why don't we have lamb more often?? One reason, I guess, its so expensive.

We are having the traditional turkey, etc. Trying a new recipe for pumpkin cheesecake. Cheesecake is probably my favorite dessert!

Tonite, having some marinated grilled beef kebabs, rice & salad.

I almost made pork chops tonight. The kids went so nuts with the ribs last night that they were begging me to pick up another rack when we were at the grocery store at 2 this afternoon... I had to point out that ribs require many hours (kids: "oh yeeeeeeah!" me:*rolling eyes*) So I asked them if they wanted pork chops instead, but they decided on chicken.

SO.... I'm making arroz con pollo! It smells quite lovely in here right now!

firestorm: I would happily fix some more ribs if you came for a visit -- just gimme some notice

I'll be in Ohio sometime this summer...can I come over for dinner??? Everything you make sounds soooo good and I've actually tried a couple of your recipes. Very tasty, but if I didn't have to make them they would be even better.

My thanksgiving dinner will be a homemade gnocchi with sweet/spicy gorgonzola mustard sauce, asparagus and pine nuts (dash of nutmeg), and homemade crecent rolls, my famous caesar salad, roasted butternut squash with brown sugar and butter, and a pumpkin cheesecake for dessert.

I don't eat meat, so turkey is never on my table this time of year
