What a burger!

Getting ready for football, I tried for the first time ever, a Deep Fried snack.

Mac and Cheese balls deep fried.

Served with a dipping sauce of blue cheese dressing, or The Out Back "Blooming Onion Dipping sauce" absolutely amazing! :)

One of my Christmas presents was some Grill Mates Mojito Lime seasoning. :thumbsup

So here we have Mojito Lime seasoned chicken, with Creamy Cheese Broccoli pasta, and peas and carrots.
I had the Mojito Lime in small packages before, and am delighted that I got it in a 16 oz container.

A friend and I took an hour and a half drive in his newly purchased 2020 Ford XLT 4x4 to Mossyrock. It was a beautiful day and Mt. Rainier was in its full glory. This burger made the drive even more worth it.

That is a handsome looking burger! :)

Our copper ceramic frying pan has been getting a little sticky, and today I tossed it into the recycle bin.

I bought a 3 ply stainless calphalon 10 inch replacement.

Looking forward to using it.

I laughed when I read a Birthday Card with the saying... "One day older only matters if you are a banana! Happy Birthday"
It had a picture of your bananas... yesterday, and today.

For dinner, I used my new pan, and made my daughter's favorite... Honey - Coconut Chicken. I also took one of raggie's day old bananas, and made a honey, coconut banana desert.

The pan cleaned up beautifully, and easily.
I'm a happy camper :) :thumbsup:

The boys prepared BBQ Burgers last night. With all the snow and rain they positioned the grill just outside the garage. When I opened the garage door to take my van out, the sweet BBQ smoke poured out of the garage. :laughing:

It was worth it -

poppy your a gifted food guy. i had 15 bean soup today
Thanks raggie33 :)
How did you season the soup? Did it turn out good?

I made it twice, and I don't know, it must need some ham in it or something. I guess I used the wrong seasoning, because it had a lot of taste.... none that I liked. :( I do enjoy lentil soup, and have a bag of them around here, that I need to cook up before the weather starts getting too warm to enjoy it.

Last night we had burgers from Shake Shack

The night before I made baked chicken marinated in a combination of:
salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, basil, thyme, parsley, balsamic vinegar, and olive oil.

I made fresh bruschetta, a first for me. Essentially it is tomato salad.

6 plumb tomatoes with the seeds removed, and diced.
salt, pepper, garlic, basil, oil, and balsamic vinegar. It was delicious!
Next time, I'll add some sliced red onions too.

We also had some kind of squash pasta. I couldn't put enough butter and cheese on it to make it taste good. :(

Cooking with me is always some kind of an experiment. :rolleyes:

Tonight, my grandson made "Impossible" Burgers, with "Impossible meat"

Certainly it is worth a try.

It somewhat tasted like chopped meat burger, and if covered with cheese, mushrooms, onions, lettuce and tomato, you'd never know the difference. It certainly looked more like beef than other veggie burgers I have seen.

I have an aversion to uncooked meat, and although there is NO concern about getting infected with E-Coli, from this plant based burger, the fact that the middle of mine was still red was disconcerting.
