heck no, the times we visited N of Dallas, it was never on the menu anywhere...

I've never seen it on a menu here, but I already furnished how to cook it up. Really far tastier than a bland potato.

EDIT: But I may request that a couple of the Mexican food places give it a try on their menus.

Is anyone having a SUPER BOWL 55 party or get-together -or- just a quiet evening at home ?

The wife made some oven roasted chicken thighs with her herbs and spices and some of her sliced and roasted potatoes with onions and some Kraft zesty Italian dressing...... really good !  We had some yesterday and the rest today with appetizers and such during the game.

Go KC I guess or anybody but TB12 ?

My wife made an amazing carrot cake.. which includes 10 full carrots.  

If I cut a big enough piece, it counts as dessert and a vegetable serving.

Sounds good !  My neighbors made us chili 🌶️ last Wednesday on my return to civilization.  It was good.

We had our leftover -but- delicious baked chicken thighs and baked potatoes with onions and Italian dressing.

We're just here now watching TB slicing and dicing the KC Chiefs up for a nice 🏆 trophy.......28-9 in the 3rd.

Mmmmm carrot cake 🍰.    One of my favorite desserts.

Pies I like apple, occasionally pumpkin.  And banana or coconut cream pie among others.

Well it's the official  "Day After Super Bowl Winter Cooking Days".  Time to warm up the kitchen and get some good aromas going.

BUT with a high of 24 freakin degrees today the grillin' season is kind of on hold SO we're having a pasta with sweet sausage casserole today.  Ummmm !

It's smack dab in the middle of  SOUP, STEW, CHILI, OVEN ROASTED, BAKING and CASSEROLE season !       So what are your favorites ?

........ edit add, not that I'm promoting any particular store but Wal-Mart has economical casserole stuff if you're in the market.

Mmmmm, what's better than spaghetti how about BAKED SPAGHETTI CASSEROLE even better and only 6 ingredients from Mr Food.  And it's great for a GAMEDAY or just any chilly day will do......and speaking of chili, coming soon.

https://www.mrfood.com/Pastas/Baked-Spaghetti-6414


SERVES. 9. COOK TIME.   1 HOUR 40 MINUTES
 
Who doesn't love a hearty casserole? Using only six ingredients, this is one dish that's going to leave you wanting more!

What You'll Need....and see Notes below !

  • 1 (16-ounce) package spaghetti
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 (26 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. Prepare spaghetti according to package directions; drain, rinse, drain again, and set aside in a large bowl.
     
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown ground beef over medium-heat until no pink remains; drain off excess liquid. Add onions, peppers, and salt; cook 6 to 8 minutes, until vegetables are fork-tender. Stir in spaghetti sauce. Add to spaghetti; toss until well mixed.
     
  4. Pour into a 9- x 13-inch baking dish that has been coated with cooking spray; cover tightly with aluminum foil and bake 50 minutes. Remove foil and bake 5 to 8 minutes, until top is crisp.

★ Notes

  • You can adjust the ingredients and the amounts to make a casserole with your leftover spaghetti. And it's great topped with 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese before baking to give it a different flavor and texture.
  • Option for a bit of crushed pepper flakes if you like.
  • If you enjoyed this spaghetti dinner recipe, be sure to try Spaghetti Pie: Our Best Baked Spaghetti Pie Recipe.

Some extra time on your hands this weekend ? NO GAMEDAY ?   Want to try something new and different ? How about making a SAUSAGE PIZZA from scratch, ok or maybe a 12" pizza shell. This recipe is from CENTO fine foods.  https://www.cento.com/recipes/pizza/sausage_pizza.php
 
 

SAUSAGE PIZZA

Prep Time   20 Min  Cook Time  20 Min    Serves  2-4

A traditional pizza recipe with mozzarella cheese and your choice of Italian sausage, top our Sausage Pizza with sliced jalapenos for added texture and spice.

Ingredients

Directions

Mix flour and salt together and add to a mixing bowl. Create a well in the center and pour water into the well. Add the sugar and yeast to the water and mix within water. Gradually mix flour into the water in small increments and as the dough begins to form, take it out of the bowl and continue to work it by hand on a floured surface.

 If the dough is too sticky, add flour in small increments until the dough no longer sticks to your hands or the kneading surface. Knead the dough thoroughly until it becomes smooth, then place a small amount of extra virgin olive oil on the bottom of a bowl and place the dough into the bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, and leave it out until the dough has completely risen, about 15-20 minutes.

 To tell if the dough is fully risen, make a small indentation in the center. If the indentation does not rise, the dough is ready. Preheat the oven to 450˚F. 

-----------------  now to prepare sausage toppings -----------------

While dough rests, roast sausage in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until browned, then slice to desired thickness. Lightly grease a 12-inch nonstick pizza pan or heat pizza stone. Form crust by hand and place dough on pan.  (or use a 12" pizza shell)

 Spread pizza sauce on dough, top with cheese and sausage. Add jalapenos, if desired. Bake on the middle rack for 15-20 minutes, or until crust is golden and cheese has melted. Let cool before slicing. Serves 2-4.

You could always substitute green peppers or even roasted red 🌶️ peppers or anything else you might like.

Pizza 🍕 is a very flexible meal.  And YES (sweet) sausage is a nice substitute for pepperoni sometimes.  (my wife prefers sweet or mild sausage)

My wife won't touch them either but we're out of yeast and when we get some more she WILL make it from scratch.......half jalapeno and half 💚 green peppers.

Can't wait, mmmmm jalapenos. ❤️

The last Wedgewood Pizza we just finished yesterday was really good but quite spicy pepperoni...... and of course the #1 pizza topping.

Pepperoni, mushrooms, green peppers, red peppers -and- extra 🍕 cheese is pretty much our standard and Wedgewood puts on a good amount of sauce !  And sometimes we'll add an extra 8" Philly Steak Pizza on the side.

I do occasionally like a sausage or Philly cheese steak pizza to change things up.  

"Pizza, it's what's for dinner......well maybe twice a month".  :)

Anyone else remember or have a favorite Classic Diner or Dive Bar where you can get a good burger 🍔 and beer ?  Maybe some great fried fish an fries and ice cold draft beer ?

I remember a long, long time ago when we'd go to or from one of the countless Cleveland Indians games or the memorable Cleveland BROWNS games some of the joints we'd hit some in small towns between our meeting point in Girard Ohio and the best location in the nation Cleveland !

Many of those small ma & pa joints I'm afraid are long gone now.......but great food, a juke box, some booths and maybe a pool table.

Ah memories !   Now doesn't that just look good !

Puckers in North Canton.....Not an old place, but great food....the Chicken Quesadillas are fantastic!

Oldie but goodie.....John's Bar in Canton......Nothin' fancy, just all food is excellent & menu has some different stuff & lots of beer. I am ESPECIALLY partial to the Smelt (when available) with Cocktail Sauce & a Greek Salad! I've enjoyed John's since we moved to Canton in 1974. The quality is STILL as good as it was back then! It remains our favorite.

We've pretty much been living out of the pantry and the near freezing garage for drinks so we can keep all the stuff cold in the fridge by not opening if for fear of lost power for unknown periods of time for more than a week now. Our power has been off and on so many times I could retire again if someone would pay me a $10 / time per week. I make a mean Ritz cracker with crunchy peanut butter for sure. Did score some wildflower honey to mix with the peanut butter yesterday too.🤗😋
