I've been eating hot dogs this week. I read recently about the King's Hawaiian split top style buns and I prefer that style but can't get them around here so when I spotted these at my local market I picked up a package and have been trying to use them up. Yesterday I pulled a couple of Sabrett's wieners out of the freezer, steamed them and the buns, added some store-bought sauerkraut and Lowensenf's Medium Dusseldorf mustard, another recent acquisition I love and have been using in everything that needs mustard.

The sweetness of the buns didn't go with the Sabrett's as well as it did with some hot links the day before and I definitely prefer toasting these buns to steaming them but - live and learn. Also had some Chobani and a black plum.

A very unlikely and inauthentic summer roll - canned salmon, seasoning, scallions, spring mix and some grape tomatoes.

We had "Darienne's World Famous in Cavan Fruit Pancakes" with yogurt. Never thought to photograph them. We eat our main meal at lunch always...except when we are having company at dinner time.

Last night I made a simple beef and lamb stew and served it over mashed potatoes. I deliberately made extra mash and today combined the potatoes with grated zucchini and chopped scallion, added a beaten egg and formed small patties which I fried until golden and heated through. A little leftover stew and I had a hearty lunch:

Anna N, beef looks very nice even it is simple, this tomato gives nice aroma and decoration in same time.

Quite pleasant and comforting. Definitely something to consider along with chicken soup for those days when food loses its allure. A liitle too like invalid food to make a regular appearance.

Fair enough. I've been looking to try it for a while, too, and I can see how that might be the case.

The latest in a recent series of killer BLTs. Homemade bread, pulled out of the oven 45 minutes before toasting, thick cut bacon, perfectly ripe, home grown Brandywine tomatoes, iceberg lettuce (sorry, I like it for this sandwich), and a schmear of mayonnaise. I would have enjoyed a cigarette afterwards, but I don't smoke.

When I'm trying to get back on track health wise I sous vide a bunch of chicken breasts, shred into a tub and make wraps for lunch.
Chicken, cabage, farro and just a tablespoon of texas thunder bbq sauce is enough for the flavor.

SB: Im very much with you! what are you times and temps on the CkBs? I get these all the time at $ 1.77 LBS. I trim the 'tender' tendon (tease it out ... fundamental) and make Thai/Indian? etc packs out of this

did you find the CkBs' 'dry' ie no fat? what I see above might enjoy an Avocado Slice

cheers!

what are you times and temps on the CkBs?


I do 142 for 3 hours, then leave out at room temp to cool for 20 minutes before shocking. I cook in a little olive oil and 3 smashed garlic cloves per 5 beasts. It's amazing how much garlic flavor/aroma you get.

I heat up everything but the chicken in a skillet then add a shredded breast at the end and turn the heat off. Such juicy chicken, you will love! Making a cesar one tonight with my silken tofu dressing. 1/2 the calories and fat of regular cesar with all the creaminess and flavor.

Care to share your silken tofu dressing recipe for those of us that are intrigued....
