Dinner, Thursday Aust 29th, 2013

Special day in the Ogre Family, Baby Sister Wynona is 50 today, so in her honor:

Lasagna

Her favorite is Cherry Chip Cake, which I abhor, so I'm picking up a Boston Cream cake with a maraschino on top. She is two states away...

mmm, lasagna...

I think I'm going to make a dutch oven dish using kielbasa, potatoes, carrots, onions, bacon and beer. I need something that's going to produce some leftovers for quick noonday meals.

It's my big sister's birthday today so in honor of what we have in the fridge, we're having wings on the grill and a salad. She can make her own damn dinner.

I guess I'll give her a call.

We're off to the State Fair this evening, so I imagine dinner will be served on a stick.

Andy and PF, Happy birthday to your sisters. I THINK all the bodies will be home tonight for dinner. Unfortunately, one of those bodies is not feeling well at all. She is currently curled up around a hot water bottle so we may be down to 3 for dinner. I was thinking about pork tenderloin on the barbie until I read that Andy is making wings. Now I want to make pacanis's garlic/parmesan wings. That's a cruel thing to do to a sick kid, but that's what I want. I'll probably do some of our garden potatoes in olive oil and s&p while I'm doing the wings.

Caesar salad? Coleslaw? Hmmm....

You'll have to eat extra healthfully for about a month to make up for your dinner on a stick adventure!

I saw a cooking competition show over last weekend. It had the usual panel of three judges, all experienced carnival cooks, and the competitors were cooking carnie food, which of course featured something on a stick. Some of those cooks were getting pretty creative, but what it boiled down to is whoever could find something unusual that batter would stick to and could be deep fried. One guy did chicken fried steak on a stick, which worked well. It was a nice deviation from the usual BBQ competition shows.

How'd he get the gravy to stick to it?

Heck, the most healthy option may be to just eat the stick.

Plenty of fiber...

Watch out for splinters.
