And it has occurred to me that if, in fact, one man sleeps while the other man drives, that it should be a relatively easy task to get some orange juice from Florida to Ohio in less than 40 hours.

This was in the 1960s,   Remember, the likes of i-75 and I-77 were not completed...or perhaps even started then.  They had to drive through the hills and mountains of Georgia/Tennesse/Kentucky/Virginia/West Virg.  on back highways like US 21.  And those were some nasty roads through there in those days.

I know that I-77 anyway was not complete through WVa. until about the late 80s.

I was just going to say that Heluva Good is a good fill-in for Lawson's.

Smith's French Onion dip, sold in certain gas stations? Virtually tasteless.

My wife knows shopping and deals and makes the rounds of local stores like Marcs and Aldis which has their store brand for dip, pickles, etc. HEAVENLY FARMS (from memory) quite good and a decent price. Try it!

So what’s on the menu today? Oh let me guess :lol:

Well is anyone NOT having turkey today? Anyone working? (In 11 years of working in Mill maintenance I missed many holidays.)

We aren't. Lots of different family things going on and nobody can all get their shitt together to have Thanksgiving at one place. So her family will have Thanksgiving on Friday I will go to a movie and down to Carrollton for the last Coley's reunion, and later, and catch up with them sometime in the afternoon.

Traditionally on Thanksgiving Day we go to buca de Peppo in Strongsville.

They purchased a Char-Broil smoker roaster Tru infrared device at are going to roll the dice cooking the turkey in that.

I purchased my first beer there a can of Old Dutch when I was 16 years old. Henry looked at me and said are you 18 Simmie? In Carrollton  most people's nickname  was the first few letters of  their last name with an ie at the end . I said sure. He kind of squinted but gave me the beer anyway. Russ and Henry Cole we're both a few years older than my pop and my pop worked there when he was a kid, sold popcorn hot front of the place. Coley would come out and say put more salt on it Simmie if they don't get thirsty they won't drink beer.

There was a narrow chalkboard along the top of the bar painted with cross hatches 4 9 + tennings and a spot for the teams names the Indians and whoever the opponent might have been. There is a ticker tape machine in the bar and at the end of each inning Coley would stand on a bar stool and right in the score. This was well before I was born.

Nothing like a bag of longneck clams, some fresh melted butter and bbq chicken with a sweet tater  this time of year. Nobody around here is very familiar with the Clambake thing so we need to do it ourselves.

Steamed clams right out of the shell with melted butter are the bomb. Fried clams too, but the whole clam and not the strips like Long John Silvers.

The other day we wanted something different to eat and my wife was at the deli department of our local Giant Eagle and they had fresh clam chowder it was amazing good....for Ohio not on the shore somewhere but way better than out of a can. Clams weren't rubbery or gritty and the stock was nice and thick. We were pleasantly surprised and will try it again.

I was really pleasantly surprised only wish she bought a bigger container. :lol:  They have some good older ladies cooking and baking there.

After all this turkey stuff is gone in a few days it's steaks on the grill and later more chowder! We seem to do the same thing each year.....burgers the night before.....turkey x 3 or 4 days.....steak!  And we got some nice gift cards, Outback, Olive Garden among others.

My uncle who lived in Euclid used to have great Clam bakes.  Nets of clams with butter, barbeque porterhouse steaks, etc.  We'd come over from Cleveland and feel like we were visiting the good side of town.  Now Euclid is a dump.

Here's a good cracker topper. 

 Take a block of Philly cream cheese and mix in a can of crab meat. Not that imitation crap either. Form the cheese and crabmeat into a small log shape on a plate and chill. Then smother it with some good  C.ocktail sauce. 

 Try some of that on a Ritz.

Oh yes my wife likes those types of cream cheese  hors d'oevuvres at parties or just for us, we occasionally use the lower calorie cream cheese but the crab makes it! And a huge choice or Ritz or other  crackers are out there like savory veggie crackers (no kidding), triskets, townhouse crackers,  mini fillo shells,  whole wheat or other sturdy crackers for the heavier dips and spreads. 

Damn you're making me hungry.....can make a meal of those with several different dips or spreads. :P

You can never go wrong with burgers on the grill.

Costco premade burgers are awesome and dont shrink down to half their size when done. Its all about he bread so get some good big rolls like kaisers and a slice of cheese and onion and youre in business. Wash it down with a good micro brew.

Yeah not only football season but leading into the winter stay in more, holidays or just to liven things up abit. Plus everything doesn’t have to me mega calorie stuff you can mix in raw veggies and low cal variations if done CORRECTLY some are good.

You can gain a ton just eating appetizers and junk food.....but I need my pizza and Philly Steak sandwiches once in a while dammit!

Oh BTW since I got out of the hospital 9/1/17 I'm still on those blasted antibiotics for another month yet I can't eat some spicy foods, messes me up I had to switch from sausage on pizza to roasted red peppers, mushrooms, black olives, extra cheese......and it worked plus I really love it. Me a veggie pizza guy :lol::lol::lol:

I'm a really good cook but the wife is a scratch gourmet cook -plus- I've given her my grill tips now she's great there too.....well we occasionally go with premade burgers but more often she buys a good ground sirloin or sometimes mixes in some veal or pork.....but careful on open flame to get the fat mix right and you don't want them too lean either, too dry!  Plus you can add in spices to your taste including pepper and SALT and no it does not dry out the meat.

Thank goodness for our big backyard grill always piped in and ready to go. ......and way less cleanup. ;)

Actually I kind of like more neutral tasting crackers that show off the flavor of whatever you're putting on them.
