Sausage Sandwich

For breakfast this morning at Starbucks.  Always satisfying.  Especially on this drizzly dreary day.  Getting ready for a camping trip, so hopefully I can find something unusual to post this weekend.

Homemade French rolls

Well my wife did it again with her baking prowess. Today was homemade French roll loaves which were used for our meatball sandwiches tonight. Sliced openface with hearty meatballs and a rich tomato sauce topped with shredded mozzarella and finished under the salamander.



Mozzarella Chicken Supreme

Today for lunch at Wendy’s, and supreme it was! A homestyle breaded chicken breast with two slices of mozzarella and a creamy Parmesan sauce.


Happy Thanksgiving

It’s Onions versus Celery in the Cornbread Dressing Bowl!


Homemade fried rice

So I kept some leftover rice from teriyaki night and made fried rice for the first time. Turned out really good. Made with egg, green onion, soy sauce, and whatnot. Enough of the Orient for awhile…Looking forward to good ol’ American Thanksgiving tomorrow.


Dan Dan Noodles

Today for lunch at Pei Wei Asian Diner. I’ve been wanting to try this for some time. The minced chicken and bean sprouts were the best part. I however tired quickly of the thick egg noodles. Next time, Pad Thai.


Chicken quesadilla

At the country club down the street. Something about being this close to Thanksgiving makes me not want to cook tonight…


Homemade Gnocchi

So for my birthday dinner my wife pulled out all the stops tonight and made a wonderful homemade gnocchi from scratch. Turned out excellent! Almost as good as my Carbonara. Made the traditional way with potato, flour and egg. I did do the sauce though, with bacon, a white wine reduction and a bit of heavy cream.



Sausage McGriddle

At McDonald’s of course. I don’t know why I don’t get these tasty little buggars more often. It’s a sausage patty enveloped in warm hotcake discs with nodules of syrup throughout.


Karl Strauss

At one of their fine brewery restaurants. This is their Mac on Tap. The variation they call the “Piggy Bank”. It has bacon, Black Forest ham, and linguiça. This and a few of their pints made for an excellent birthday weekend…
