    Dinner 2020

    Thanks guys. Only about $8 a dozen (to me that’s a good deal). We did have 4 dead ones out of the two dozen but I did get them at the local grocery store. I love clams. My dad introduced me to raw clams when we went down the shore when I was 5. My mom wasn’t happy but I love them! When I first moved to Hoboken (I’ve since moved back to the ‘burbs) the day I moved in I was waiting for my roommate. I went to this hole in the wall, boardwalk floored dive called Biggie’s Clam Shop. I ordered a dozen fried bellies and couldn’t wait so I got a dozen raw clams and sat there, slurping them down, contented that I finally had a decent, non restaurant job, a large apartment and a job I enjoyed in Grammercy. Those were some really sweet clams.

    Dinner 2020

    @BeeZee I posted this else where the other night! Lazy leftover dinner. Cooked fusilli al dente then ran cool water over it. Chopped up left over turkey London broil, mozzarella, baby cucumbers. I added leftover roasted cauliflower, black olives, cherry tomatoes and baby corn. Served it all cool, with the powdered “Good Seasons Italian” dressing mix to which I added a few dashes of honey and mustard until it was umami rich. Good use of leftover and about 20 minutes to make. Will work well if my husband ever goes back to work in an office full time, since I can eat it whenever I’m hungry and it won’t suffer from drying out if he works late. Tonight was two dozen grilled clams, grilled green beans, grilled teriyaki marinated shrimp skewers all on the BGE. No leftovers. I’m happy and full!
  3. I loved the abundance of food Blogs here when I would check in after working 8-26 hour shifts in restaurants.

    Dinner 2020

    Turkey London Broil from https://greenvillagepacking.com on the BGE with pecan. Grilled up two pieces of the Peter Luger’s commercial bacon— it really isn’t even close to what’s served at the steakhouse, but it was a tasty appetizer. Air fried baby new potatoes and grilled green beans rounded out the meal.

    @BKEats I have that same bacon in my fridge. Is it similar to the actual bacon served at Lugers? I was going to grill it in the BGE but maybe it’s not as thick as the bacon while dining at Lugers.
  6. I’m feeling younger than I am.

    Would good old Polly O String cheese work?

    @shain your margarita pizza is stunning. It’s my idea of a perfect pizza. And now I really want pizza!
  9. Yes I am going to have our home estimated for a generator. It will likely cost more than a new, fully loaded Jetta and I never purchase cars. I have to make green goddess. I’d also like to make a true Caesar salad but with grilled romaine. I miss the days of tableside Caesar salads.
  10. No restaurant here, they’re close due to COVID. I am in a suite with a refrigerator, microwave, oven and electric stove. I am really bad with electric stoves. I foresee burning something simple like soup in the near future. Supposedly we should get power back by next Tuesday. A week. 🤷🏻‍♀️
  11. I wonder what would happen if someone mixed ranch and green goddess. I’d try it. Hell I’d make it if I wasn’t in a hotel right now.

    Um... I bought it. I know it was the lazy way but since it comes refrigerated and in a tube it grills up nicely. Otherwise I would have cooked it, rolled it in Saran Wrap once it was cooled and refrigerated it for a day.

    Dinner 2020

    Sweet Italian sausages, fresh green beans and basil polenta all grilled on the BGE.
  14. Orzo and pastina worked well for me while dealing with pain.
  15. What about chicken pot pie?
  16. I’ve never used it. I have an Anova and accessories and an InstantPot. Both untouched. 🙁

    Lunch 2020

    @Kim Shook I’d get rid of the “toastie” maker in favor of a panini press. You can make great grilled sandwiches and you can also grill hotdogs and burgers on it in a pinch. That brisket looks like heaven.

    I think I’m ok. The most red meat I can eat is maybe 3-4oz. I should see my cardiologist despite being 40.

    I think after this weekend I have to go on a diet. Does anyone know one that allows a lot of butter, salt and carbs?

    Baby backs (they look burnt they aren’t at all just charred) and grilled pineapple studded with cinnamon
  21. @weinoo I could eat that entire jar of Maile gherkins.
