The Sandwich Diaries – Beans on Toast

While it’s not a traditional sandwich in the sense that a Reuben or a Club is a sandwich – meat or goodies slapped between 2 or more slices of heaven – but, IF we’re going to consider open faced thingys like a Hot Brown or a Tuna Melt one, then it has to apply to Beans on […]

Okra Side Dishes

Rope ’em up, Ride ’em Out – Okra Round Up

Yeah, you can say it… “I’m one of those Pod People…“ I get positively gooey when anyone just mentions okra, and I’m quite possibly one of the .005% of the okra eating population that even likes it boiled. (the 1/2 bushel last month should have been a dead give away.) So it isn’t any wonder […]

Burt’s Farm – Dawsonville (just past Amicolola Falls) You know it’s Fall when you feel even the slightest dip in the morning temperatures.

Condiments Grilling Lamb

Weight of the World on my Lamb Shoulder…

Steaks… There’s a bit of contention when it comes to lamb shoulder steaks. There are those who believe that you should only braise them because the connective tissue – bone – and general condition of the musculature make them an unlikely candidate for anything short of 3 hours in a stew. … And then there are people […]

Breakfast Comfort Food Eggs Late Night Snack Mexican

OLÉ! – kinda…

Ideally, there should be a bit of a travel story depicting my drunken body staggering into some dirty backwater, iguana-crawling, cha-cha playing, peeling concrete floored cantina somewhere down in the backwoods of the Yucatan Peninsula where I first had Chilaquiles. But that would be a fib. The drunkenness, staggering and crawling are probably correct – but I […]
