You are well ahead of your time!

Somehow I knew you would be the starter of tonight's/tomorrow's/yesterday's dinner tonight topic. Sometimes it's just that you're in the world's most populated area just east of the international date line.

Hey, I'm starting a new hobby Internet business and I hope to get a few customers from down under! In fact that's why I've been conspicuously absent from the forum these last few days, I've been working on my second hobby business.

So tonight's dinner... Mine was mostly out of the freezer and while Kylie is starting tomorrow's dinner tonight topic I'm still in the middle of cooking mine for tonight. I haven't made my last decision yet.

I was typing on the Internet all day (other than my power walk) so I turned to the freezer and grabbed a bison hamburger patty, a sesame bun, and a frozen slice of fresh pineapple. (I buy them fresh and carve them up, then individually freeze most of the slices. Pineapple does remarkably well upon being frozen and then thawed.)

So right now I've got a new cast iron grilling pan and I've grilled the pineapple slice, and I'm currently grilling some bacon. I've sliced some mushrooms and undecided if they should go in the mix. Maybe I'll grill 'em up and then decide after whether they go with pineapple and bacon. Then the bison patty until it's medium rare. And final assembly: all the obvious suspects plus a sesame bun (haven't decided to grill it or oven heat it, but the oven is up to temp) and the only condiment will be mayonnaise (not home made, don't got none left).

So that's what's on my menu tonight, a bison burger on a sesame bun with grilled pineapple and bacon, and maybe mushrooms. It's a "lite" dinner for me but I've been working out lately and one thing about working out, it increases your metabolism and decreases your appetite.

(some time elapses...)

Hehe, LOL, I got involved in my story here and forgot about the bacon. It made a bunch of smoke and looks like I'll have to loop back to the beginning of the bacon step with new bacon. Meanwhile my crib is filled with what looks like London fog!

But I'm having a good time and there's plenty of bacon. I should post and focus on cooking, so I will... :)

I enjoy good natural casing hot dogs. You got my attention and I looked. They are only available in a limited area. Where to find us

You can get them online for $56.90 (plus shipping) for ten pounds.

There's no way in this lifetime I'll be eating any hot dogs (or processed lunch meat). Doesn't matter how they are made or what kind of casings they are in--just not gonna happen. I can't believe people still eat them. A dear friend of mine lived on hot dogs. He died at the age of 28 of lymphoma. I contribute that to his constant diet of hot dogs.

well yaaaa... living on them?
Everything in moderation is best...so I have heard.
I wouldn't deprive myself of enjoying a great hot dog once in a while
PS. I love KimChee too! Your sandwich sounds great I'm gonna try that:>)

I agree with you there CWS. The research is in and the jury convicted. Eating processed meats is just no good for your health. They're full of chemicals and the grinding exposes the entire insides to surface contamination. If there's a doctor in the land who wouldn't give processed meats a thumbs down he or she should be disbarred or defrocked or whatever they do to doctors who don't know anything beyond billing Medicare.

Yet a few years ago I got a craving for the hot dogs I remembered, and bought some. Why do dogs come 8 to a pack and buns 6 to a pack, or something like that? 10 and 8? Anyway I cooked a few on my grill and they were disgusting. Totally destroyed my memory of how good dogs could be.

Hot dogs and other processed meats are Y-U-C-K to me now. I'd eat one... if the alternative was starvation.

My dad used to make pretty good fried baloney sandwiches. That was the only thing I ever saw him cook in the kitchen, although he was a damned fine barbecuist! I don't want to destroy that good memory by trying to fry balogney myself. I'll keep the memory and pass on the baloney.

It's often said that sausages and politics are alike, in that you don't want to look too closely into what goes into either one.
