That's alot of fryer oil, cooking/energy & cleanup to save a couple bucks,

unless you just bake them?

I have an indoor fryer for chicken and french fries for the kids.

I don't do it to save bucks as much as the kids like the experience and they are good.

Went back to Cracker Barrel today.

Ordered a light and tastey meal.

Fried catfish, baby carrots and that disgusting looking pile is broccoli casserole, which was mighty good.

IMO, poppy's food looks tastier. I think you should make a reservation at poppy's. ;)

Our chiefs decided to try their hand at preparing Ratatouille. It was a first for all of us and was delicious.

I loved the animated film Ratatouille. Had an exchange student from France back in the 1970s who could cook a bit, and this dish was his specialty. Was pretty darned good.

Would love to do one similarly to how they did it in the film. With a great sauce and herbs, it'd be fabulous. Yum.

I thought I had tater tots in stock but they were crispy crowns. That'll do.

We had some clearance priced bacon wrapped chicken tenders to try.

That and a few remaining fully cooked large shrimp to go with the crispy crowns.

On a baking sheet I spread the pototo product and brushed a bit of peanut oil on them with a silicone bbq brush.

They call for 24 minutes at 450. The chicken 16 minutes at 450. So the potato product was cooked for 8 then the baking sheet pulled from the oven. The chicken was placed onto the sheet on foil with walls built to keep any juices from getting onto the potatos. Bake another 16 minutes.

A side of apple sauce and about 8oz of Minute Maid fruit punch over ice to wash it down..
Very filling and fairly low in calories.

The chicken was on sale, the shrimp was bogo and so were the Ore-Ida crispy crowns. Fruit punch was also on sale.

I think the first time I had salmon was with a dill sauce at my niece's wedding reception. Since then I've been on a mission to have it again with a dill sauce that was as good as the original.

I think I found it. I've eaten at this restaurant and ordered it before, but maybe they have a different chef? I don't know, but it was different, and delightful.

We went back to the airport restaraunt to watch a sunset and enjoy some barbecue.

Owners of both planes in the photo were eating there.

The white blob was chicken noodle casserole.
Oh, man that stuff was delicious.
Next plate had more corn, a bit of chopped pork shoulder, some peel n eat shrimp and the best mashed potatos I've ever had.

No salmon but I wasn't complaining.

Today for lunch while watching the Giants lose.

I had a portion of Moe's' Stack (a large tortilla with layers of cheese, another smaller tortilla, then scoops of your choice of meat (white or dark chicken, shredded beef or pork), black or brown beans, cilantro, olives, sauteed onions and peppers, and other selections. ALso your choice of half a dozen sauces. All good.

This was accompanied with a "Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout"
I drank it not even chilled. It was very flavorful. Room temp is the temp for me.

No pictures because I didn't realize this side of the forum....
Last Friday at work, the on-site cafe had several sandwiches of the day. Tuna Melt, Philly cheesesteak, and Turkey cranberry..... I did what any self-respecting foodie would do and combined the best from each....
On a hoagie roll, I got the turkey with the grill veggies from Philly cheesesteak with melted swiss cheese. On the hoagie itself, I got them to use some chipotle mayo. It was actually rather good.

As a baker I'm not generally just blown away by baked products, but this veggie Calzone was the best I've had and it was it a bar foods type place. I prefer veggie pizzas and such.
