Dinner Thursday, 5-8-2014 ~ Draft Day Dinner

Listening to the NFL draft, first pick about to be announced. What foods did you draft for your meal tonight?

Didn't cook, unless you count two pans of scones. Instead, supper tonight was hot dogs, potato salad, and a can of bake beans not fussed up.

What did you have today?

We had baked ham, macaroni and cheese, steamed spinach, iced tea, strawberry shortcake with whipped cream. Yum.

Wow Andy, that sounds good! I'm a proponent of the other leading barbecue sauce--KC Masterpiece--but I bet your baby back ribs are about the same as mine. Do you actually smoke them? I don't have a smoker yet but I have had super good results covering a baking sheet with aluminum foil then setting a rack on top of that (to keep the ribs out of the grease) and roasting the ribs. I pay more attention to look and feel but I probably cook the 325F for 20-25 minutes, baste them with the BBQ sauce, and then another 20-25 minutes until it's time to ring the dinner bell.

Tonight I am eating something in the television category. I've been cooking too much lately and I tend to cook large servings, so I'm switching to TV so that as soon as I get hungry I can nuke and eat it, and once dinner is over at least I don't feel like continuing sipping wine and never snack after dinner.

So dinner will be something in the Lean Cuisine or Marie Callendar section, maybe with an addition of salad, vegetable, rolls or some combination of them.

I had the tacos I was going to make the other night. And they were glorious.

Yes. I used actual charcoal and actual chunks of hickory.

o my dear and precious heart. There really is a draft !?! Been reading Speculation for Months. Fish and Cut Bait.

So much hope and so little time based on a few $$ millions of -- I don't know what-- as good or better than it gets with my team; no quarterbacks in sight, a new pro coach and the GM won't say what he wants. All I can say is raise the flag this fall me hearties and hope its not just another white flag waving in the breeze.

Indeed. This is one of the reasons I liked playing PPPC's Shuffle or whatever it's called. Last year. Next Year >>> This Year.


Nom nom nom. I made Ice Tea Today. I think first time this spring. Went Barefoot in the Back Yard.

\Gads. my feet is soft. Had chicken salad for Breakfast strt out of the frig. By the time Dinner rolled around, I made Corn meal waffles standing up watching them get crispy as some sausage patties browned in a pan alongside.
