Oh my.....that looks and sounds great, Joey! A little less hot sauce for this heat wimp and I'd devour that dish.

The plates were topped with assorted nuts from the freezer..sliced almonds, seasoned cashews and honey roasted pecans.
Oh, I love this. It's on my list every time I go to TJ's. Sounds good with the extra OJ and nuts addition, Kay.

It's a great thing to have on hand for the freezer. I'm not close to a TJ's either, and usually buy a couple of bags when I'm there. It's one of my fave TJ's frozen food items. :-)

The go-withs were: grilled corn from my put-bys in the freezer, Bush's baked beans, a relish tray, and twice-baked potatoes. When I mashed and seasoned the potato guts I added fried bacon bits, green onion sauteed in the bacon drippings, and several generous shakes of Penzeys Brady Street Cheese Sprinkles. Got a jar for free last time we were at Penzeys. Good enough, but way too pricey to make it anything I would actually buy.
Oh, that sounds good.

Which part, Cheryl? The recipe for the buffalo chicken is here: Buffalo Chicken Drumsticks. The description and price points for the Brady Street Cheese Sprinkles is here: Penzeys. The cheese sprinkles are oh...kay. I got a 1/2 cup jar free the last time I shopped their store. There is no way I would spend $9.95 for it! IMO, it's worth a couple-o-three bucks, max.

Dawg, be prepared to buy several packages of it..IMO it's the very best item from Trader Joe's.

We went to Mckibbins Irish Pub for date night. I had very tasty shepherd's pie and Stirling had bangers and mash with onion rings. He said that was very good too. I've had it there and it was.

I made a low carb version of Dawg's kraut casserole. I swapped out the rice, added some additional vegetables and used tomato paste instead of tomato soup. This stuff has an addictive flavor, I kept going back for one more spoonful as I was cleaning up the kitchen after dinner!

I am going to freeze some of the leftovers to use as the base for a soup made with some chicken stock I've got stashed in the freezer.

Next time I want to try it using sausage seasoned with fennel seed instead of ground beef.

Good stuff, thanks Dawg!

Linguini with white clam sauce and Romano Cheese. Have to have that more often.

So glad you enjoyed it, Aunt Bea! Yes, it is addictive.
