TGIFriday 9/23 What's Cooking?

I cooked up an alligator/pork sausage this morning, (275 for 1 hour.)

I sliced up half of the 1/3# link and added it to scrambled eggs with processed Swiss cheese.

Does it taste like chicken? No. It seems to have a taste all it's own. It's stronger, maybe even a little gamey, but rich and good!!!

The andouille sausage appeared to be cooked, so I sliced up a half link, and tasted a piece. It's very good too.

I decided to use the other rib eye steak for beef stew. I fried it up like a regular steak, and when it cools, I'll cut it up with my kitchen shears and start the stew using fresh carrots, onion, celery and potatoes in some stock from the freezer. My fresh thyme could stand a haircut, so I'll use that and a bay leaf.

For dinner, I'm oven frying some breaded chicken pieces I bought. The stew will be better for dinner tomorrow.

I'm also going to do something with the zucchini I got too. Probably stuffed with sausage/cornbread stuffing I found in the freezer while rearranging to make room for all the new food.

What's cooking at your place?

I've got a hankerin' for steak and eggs. I think that's what I'll have for lunch and tonight I'll heat up some mac & cheese or something.

Good morning,

Cloudy, rainy, humid day here. Perfect day for a pot of chili. So we'll have chili with all the fixings and I'll make a pan of cheddar buttermilk cornbread.

Zhizara- glad to hear that you liked the gator sausage. I was talking to my sister about it and she said she had a gator burger in Florida once. She said it was good.

I'm making beef chop suey over rice, iced tea and Ben & Jerry's Schweddy Balls ice cream. I'll let you know how good the ice cream is. We're looking forward to it if we can stop laughing long enough to eat it.

I have a lot of chicken left over from sandwiches the other night. I'm thinking of refashioning it into chicken tacos. I'll add some salsa to the chicken and heat it up. Have lettuce, tomatoes, sour cream and cheese with soft shells.

Sometimes a big lunch is nice. I cooked the steak in a CI skillet just for something different. And to smoke up the house

Reheating fried chicken from the freezer, then trying a new recipe -- chopped cabbage, onion, bacon. No ground-breaking combo here. And a buttered slice of Arnold's double-fiber bread. Had Kashi high-fiber cereal for breakfast. Welcome to the golden years.
