French, Italian, English muffin, whatever anything that gets good and crunchy and still has some body is nice -plus- they have all kinds of spaghetti, pizza, marinara sauces on the shelf now unless we are having a big pasta meal with the meatballs we don't bother making sauce that often.  And everyone has Italian or other cheese and meats packaged up and really to go by the deli department..... especially now.

We still do our Wedgewood Pizza stop especially if my wife is going out to shop but good and tasty pizza or other quick meals are so easy now.....and more economical and hot out of the oven.  We rarely get takeout now....but being retired helps !      ;)

Wedgewood!!!  My go to when I head back to Youngstown.  Original Everything I haven’t had anything better East or West.   And then I make sure I stop at Nodays in Austintown for a Pepperoni Roll and other stuff.  
 

San Diego we have some sneaky good Chicago Style but nothing else really.

did this last night came out Awesome

The last time I had Alice Springs chicken was at Outback years ago I generally get prime rib or a good steak with Bloomin Onion and some cold beer.

When I ran across this recipe I had to put it up on here but I found several small things that needed corrected or at least explained -but- we will give it a shot soon.

Glad you enjoyed it !   And believe it or not we have two gift cards for Outback.... time for some takeout.  :)

Another GAMEDAY favorite for those who like a really good bacon cheeseburger how about THE ULTIMATE BACON CHEESEBURGER featuring a mild cheddar (or sharp if you prefer) and a soft white cow's milk cheese for easy melting.  https://www.wisconsincheese.com/recipes/3747/the-ultimate-bacon-cheeseburger

Another substitute for me would be lettuce for the arugula and garden tomatoes for the tomato jam but it's up to you how much you want to spice up your burger.  Either way it's a 5★ delicious bacon cheeseburger !

But they give you the ingredients right there and all you have to do is go to the store.......or better yet like I do send your wife.

And then bring it home and cook it up.....or better yet have your wife do it, but I tell her what to buy.

Then bon appetit !     This big juicy burger sure looks delicious but not today she made homemade macaroni salad and we're having ham and cheese sandwiches with garden tomatoes ......mmmmmm.  But I'm doing the appetizers, olives, pickles maybe salsa and chips.  ;)

The  Oven Roasted Chicken was good and the leftovers will be better again tonight !  Sage and lemon thyme and 3 different varieties of basil for a really flavourful roasted chicken and  vegetables.

Oh and my wife started cleaning out our herb garden putting all fresh herbs in our oven roasted chicken.  She puts the 12+ herbs up for the Winter/Sping and the rest we give to our neighbors and friends.

We save a bundle on them plus what we give away and they are easy to grow and keeps the varmits out of our flowers.

Bon appetit on the delicious leftovers for dinner tonight !

Just a note - our friends clued us in on beef - available in our local Walmarts. It's Keystone All Natural Beef. Think pot roast in a can.

We tried it, and it was excellent. Already cooked. The quality was outstanding - I'm going to stock up on some cans over time. Made a pot roast with potatoes and carrots.... made a wide noodles with beef casserole with it....

quick and easy to make all sorts of beef recipes before the big game.

Haven’t had a lot of time to post this year. Did these beef short ribs and beef back ribs in the smoker Saturday. Smoked with B&B hickory lump and seasoned hickory wood chunks. Used a nice Dirt style rub which is essentially savories, salt,pepper and activated charcoal. Great taste and makes for a very dark bark.

Definitely some good bark on those short ribs, some people don not really understand bark on grilled food.

Oh we have short ribs on our next 30 day menus.   :)

Local BBQ place did some pork belly Asian-style as a weekly special three or so weeks back.

I dubbed it "Meat Candy"...

Sweet... spicy... smokey... juicy.... crunchy...

It was indescribably delicious... way better than a Mounds bar.

a close friend uses coconut briskets instead of the usual charcoal.

Much healthier. I haven't researched it yet....

I'm always searching for new & simple seasonings & found a GREAT one for steak & pork.......

7-2-2.......

7 -Tblsp Kosher salt (Diamond Crystal brand. If another brand, drop it to 4)

2 -Tblsp fresh, coarse ground black pepper

2 -Tblsp GRANULATED garlic

I had Diamond Crystal, so I used the 7 tablespoons...it was great on grilled filet & grilled pork tenderloin & will remain my "go to" on those cuts of meat. The garlic MUST be granulated, NOT garlic powder.

It's a very simple rub & very easy for me to remember (no small feat at my age).

 Many, many years ago my late father-in-law gave us a few Emeril's seasonings i believe it was southwestern and original we really liked them l bought a 5 pack. Now I'm having trouble finding the 5 packs but you can find individual or 2 or 3 packs from Amazon, the best prices seem to be walmart.

I've got Weber grilling books as gifts and they have their own grilling seasoning blends I might try soon.  So easy to try and use on steak, pork, chicken, whatever. There are make your own at home knockoff recipes online.
