I'm trying a new recipe for onions, ground sausage, Ritz crackers and cheese.

I layered the crushed crackers on the bottom of a 6X7 casserole, cooked the onions with the ground sausage in a little water, drained and added a can of cream of chicken soup. Poured into the casserole dish and topped with a layer of grated Colby/Jack cheese. It's baking @ 350 until the cheese starts to brown a little.

That aught to keep it cooler in here today. I can nuke a serving for lunch and again for dinner and I'll have two more servings to freeze.

So tonight's dinner will probably be one of those two recipes.
Be brave and go for the liver recipe! If you try it and don't like it you can drink more Brandy till it tastes good

Oh it's getting made. The only thing that needs decided is the day, tonight or this weekend.

Wink What's On The 225 Menu

Today Win Dixie has buy one get one free lobsters! I am gonna cut the tail off, split it, season with salt, pepper, and butter sauce and let my husband grill them. I'm getting ready to boil some shrimp, potatoes, and corn to go with it. I think this bottle of red moscato will wash it down nicely. I think my mother in law is making potato salad so maybe a little of that too.

What can I say because I could go on, I am such a FOODIE!

I love split and grilled lobster tail. I came upon a method that finishes them inside by basting them until done.

We don't have many choices left in the freezer till Monday lol!
Didn't you know that is a necessity? You can't live without it. Your dinner sounds good. I was over reading about fish tacos... I have to make them soon. I have all the stuff for it.

Sounds interesting. Anything with sausage is good! Let us know how it tastes!

Yeah maybe one Flat Screen but we seem to be collecting them and they get bigger and bigger each time!
The Mac Salad actually turned out really nice. Just added some fresh corn, peas and carrots. A mix of mayo, chutney and chilli onion relish. Celery salt and cracked black. Didn't think it would taste as good as it does
Got the garlic and herb fish cakes in the oven now.
Loved the look of the of your last few dinners, wouldn't mind one of those wraps you made!

2 fer 1 lobsters is a great deal. well, so long as they're aroung $6 a pound or less. are they maine/cold water lobsters? or are they gulf or caribbean lobsters.
