LOL.. my dinners are sometimes so crappy.

We had a bbq yesterday and smoked some salmon. I grabbed a container of wieners and am eating it with ketchup and a Strongbow cider.

I was going to grill the other ears of corn I picked up yesterday, but I think I'll turn them into Macque Choux instead. It will be a good use for that cheap bacon I picked up. And the celery I have, which I always have a hard time using it all up. Cajun night at the pacanis compound I guess

Change of plans...
My chicken breast was still frozen solid, so no creamy cajun chicken, so I figured why make the macque choux, so I just finished off five ABTs from Sunday's Q and some ribs. Dinner took all of four minutes on power setting 7, lol.

Pacanis try chopping the celery while it is still fresh and freezing it on a cookie sheet. After it is frozen it can be put into a zip lock freezer bag. It will work fine in any cooked dish where chopped celery is called for.

Aunt Bea, you are right. I always keep a bag full of chopped celery, carrots and onions in the freezer for almost instant soup. Very nice to have. Just pour in what I need.

Thanks, AB. I think I'll give that a try with a few stocks while it's still fresh.

I used bacon grease and flour to make the gravy for the beef stew, using the stock I had cooked it in. I had about 3 cups of stock for the freezer too.

The stew is awesome from the flavorful stock. Tender too.
