I haven’t bought an “EM” for a long time. Don’t know why I never thought about EM pies!
So simple it reminds me of frozen waffle PB&Js….mmmm

I put pepper jack cheese and pepperoni in my quesadillas.

I used to use salami, but I think pepperoni tastes better and is less greasier than salami.  :BEER:

(Also, my favorite brand of salami/pepperoni is Gallo.)

Chili (just Hormel beef’n‘beans; ain’t about to make it from scratch), a freakishly large minced jalapeno (literally bigger’n my MH20), and a good long squirt of Sriracha, topped with sour cream.

Waiting for the fire to go out before I finish what’s in the pan.

Absolutely. Not uncommon to end up a human-jetpack the next day or so.

Damn, that was good, though. Well worth it.

Tropical trail mix with a handful of unsalted mixed nuts thrown in to cut the sweetness of the pineapple and papaya tidbits.

Chili does not have beans!
And a slow cooker is your best friend.
It’s always better after few days in the fridge.

There is a new gelato joint. They have lots of trendy flavors.
But the dark chocolate with salted caramel is stellar. Just finished a bowl.
All the Best,
Jeff

My wife’s folks are fromTexas. They say the same thing. We went out to visit years back. They fixed chili for this old fat man. It was delicious and said the same about the cooker. Made home made tortillas too. I just about hurt myself eating them. Man the tamales they cooked in a big steam pot were unreal too.

Ugh. Salted caramel anything is an abomination unto the LORD. (1 Cardassians 33)

Some brewery actually made SC b33r. Sick

Tasted quite a few good ones they had, and got to the SC. Took a sip, paused, spat it back into the cup, and just said “It is offensive”, staring at the cup and its vile contents.

Asked for another “sample” of a different b33r just to get the taste out of my mouth.

Had SC ice-cream bars once (got it for free with one of those Free-Day Stop’n‘Shop digipons).

Choked it down anyway ‘cause it was the only ice-cream I had, but never ever ever again.

Too hot to cook (much), so just broke open a pack o’ hot-dorgs. (Slit one end and only take what’s needed, as needed.)

Tired of the usual (katchup, mustard, relish), so figured I got onions to burn (vidalia), might as well try making some cart-style onions.

1 onion, rough-chop, into a small frying pan in oil with salt. Hate hate hate the stank of any kind of vinegar, but guess it needed some “tang” so dribbled a little bit into the pan, figure the stank would boil off but leave the taste. Seemed to.

Tomato paste, about half a can, needs water so just a sploosh into the pan as well, stir angrily. Taste. Hmm, a little sugar to counter the vinegar and paste. Bit boring, a smidge of red pepper flakes. Cook down ‘til the sauce is rather thick.

No “recipe”, just winged it. Came out pretty good, actually. I’m surprised. LOL

Hot-dorgs are about boiled, so gonna dig in now…

Just read an article about 15 Best hot dogs.
Lots of name brands did not do well.
Top dogs? Nathan’s, Oscar Mayer, Cosco.
But what do you expect from the Washington post

Salted caramel is not good by itself, but mixed with the dark chocolate is truly better than the some of its parts.

Mmmm, dark xocolatl is perfection in itself. Anything else just detracts.

 

Good God, those hot-dorgs were good…

Of course, a scoop of this and a sploosh of that and a shake of something else, I’ll probably never replicate it to be as good as this batch, but I’m used to that.

Plain white toast, too, no buns. Reminiscent of HoJo dogs from waaaaaaay back.

Unno, I just buy what’s on sale. It’s probably gotta taste like ground gym-socks for me to blacklist a brand.

Sounds good but hot dogs need to be burnt. You must be used to dirty water dogs.

That’s how I make chili. The only rule is to use meat that you would normally eat as a steak like cut. Never ground, always sliced. Then raid the spice cabinet..

Now I want a HoJos real bad. None near me. Loved them as a kid.
All the Best,
Jeff

I always boil ‘em regardless, almost always in a small frying pan.

Sometimes (rarely), I’ll drain the water, cut slits in ‘em, then fry ‘em ‘til they’re kinda leathery. Those are good, but a pain in the ass to chisel out the pan afterward.

I rarely have hotdogs, just like bacon, they’re in the freezer in case there’s nothing else to make or I want minimal cooking.

So I rarely have actual hd buns, so plain white toast goes a long way. And it’s not overly “bready”, either.

Wondered why I liked ‘em that way, and it was only after I remembered HoJo that I figured out why.

When I was a kid I used to go out in the woods and build a camp fire just to make hot dogs. Now my campfire has a swing away grill I made in the welding shop I use for hot dogs. Winter time I just use a cast iron frying pan.

On a stick, over an open fire, a little char on the outside. Nothing better.
But everything is better over a campfire.

Yup, good memories. Now I have a tradition of always eating hot dogs on the 4th of July.

turkeydance,
I went to college in Illinois. Lots of corn fields. At harvest time you could get it fresh off the stalk.
Boiled (not too long), butter (lots), salt, pepper – Fantastic!

There was a guy that developed hybrids. I swear he could make the stuff taste like anything.
Some were so sweet you could hardly stand it. Other ears were so big they could double s defensive weapons. But they had no taste and a tough texture.

Lots of the stuff I’d find in grocery stores is really poor. More like “field corn” the stuff they fed to pigs up there.
It’s better now days and we’re getting better stuff in the local stores.
Of the frozen stuff, I’ve found the Green Giant Nibblets (the 1/2 ears in the frozen packs) to be about the best.
All the Best,
Jeff

Have you tried Balsamic vinegar—it has loads of good flavor and less of that stank smell. The clear stuff reminds me of granny’s bathroom when i was a kid.

Naw, it reminds me of mum cleaning those plastic slipcovers that covered every last bit of upholstery.

The only balsamic I got is in a bottle of dressing which isn’t even opened yet.

The apple-cider vinegar is just about cider colored.
