I have a pack of chicken breasts in the fridge, so I'll do something with those. We had taters with dinner last night, so tonight will be rice or noodles. Hanover brand "Latin Blend" for the veg.

Oh, Dave, you have just given me a wonderful idea for dinner! I am adding corned beef and sauerkraut to my grocery list and will make a corned beef and Swiss panini for Dad and I will have a RUEBEN! I haven't had one in soo long. My two men (including my German husband) can't stand sauerkraut!

And since I am picking up fryer oil, french fries will be the side!

I LOVE Rubens!!!! I have not had one in a LONG time. Glad I helped.

Question: what oil do you deep fry you fried in? I have always used Crisco in my electric fry pan for frying bread, dough or cookies but in anticipation of my deep fryer I though I'd ask since I'm hoping to be making fried and wings.

I use a "fryer oil" I get at a nearby restaurant supply store where I get items for my business as well. It is a blend of shortening and canola and I find it does a great job. I am not sure if it is 50/50, but I think that would be a close guess. I have been using it for home and catering use in my fryer for years. I do wings, fries, chicken, fish, wontons (all sorts of varieties), etc and this mix is very versatile for all of them. So when do you get your fryer? Have you decided which brand/model yet?

I just use whatever vegetable oil is on sale. Still, it gets expensive. My buddy uses the restaurant supply near his house for larger quantities and it costs him less per quart. Also, I'm not bashful about straining it and re-using it a few times.

That's a given! Though I do change it as it gets dark or I have used it for fish and am doing something with a delicate flavour.
