Looks really good sw.

I'm headed to Sullivan's Steakhouse in an hour. My neighbor is treating me for helping him out while he was moving.

I guess he's a former neighbor now. Been neighbors over 20 years.

an eclectic mix of homemade from scratch mac n cheese n tuna, value hotdogs in value buns (but I microwaved the fuckers myself) and homemade from scratch (including the chicken stock base) leek potato and onion soup. the latter is my fave, topped with grated cheese

I'm the only person I know who nukes their hotdogs.

yeah, I wouldn't normally, but they were the nearest thing to hand and I had 10 seconds to prepare hot food to go for child going from baritone lesson straight to hockey.

Only if I'm in a serious hurry to shove a meatstick down my facehole. I wrap the scraptube in a papertowel and wet it down at the counterwell before I throw it in the radiationbox for 30-40 seconds, try to unroll it without scalding my sausagefingers, and slam it into a breadbun before I dump god knows what on top of it and cram the whole thing into my slavering mouthgap.

Otherwise I usually just steam-boil them in just a little bit of water on the stove. It doesn't take too much longer, five or ten minutes tops, and tastes way better.

If I'm going to the trouble of starting the stove to "cook" a hotdog, I prefer to do it in the skillet, browning them a little, sometimes I cut them in half lengthwise to get more surface area to brown and also cook more quickly since I reduce the distance from the surface to the center by about half by doing so.

I had pretendy crabsticks.
Didn't eat the fattening dip though.

Well, only on two of them.

Try a spiral cut sometime if you want surface area. Use a paring knife or similar and run a shallow cut that twists around the dog. It adds plenty of surface area for browning to happen, can make a dinky dog fill out an overly large bun, and it looks pretty weirdly cool, too.

Tonight will be potato soup and beef rolls with spinach (if still good) and havarti rolled inside. But ONLY if I work out.

Couldn't you have cooked some real meat by then? At least a breakfast link or something (that's the closest you get to a normal sausage here, mah breetish chums....).

lasagna tonight. hopefully. Hockey-boy might have to eat his in the car, cooling each mouthful as it goes. yes, from scratch. I'm on a roll......

Kids are having leftovers tonight, hurriedly warmed and left in front of them as I run out the door to a school meeting. Mr. Clod and I will eat something later after I get back around 8:30. What that will be is as much a mystery to me as it is to you...

Turkey quiche, a loaf of bakery bread heated in the oven while the quiche cooks, a salad, and some broccoli.
