Whats for Dinner Tonight?
« on: January 22, 2008, 03:19:20 PM »
I'm making my signature spaghetti.

1) Buy the cheapest spaghetti at HyVee. (99 cent package, makes two big meals)
2) Buy Ragu Roasted Garlic spaghetti sauce.
3) Go to MaidRite. Order a Megarite sandwich ($4). Fore those of you who don't know, Maidrite is too cheap to use hamburger patties, they just brown the beef. Also a mega sandwich, has twice the browned ground beef, a regular sandwich has. Important to know.
--I order it plain, just the meat and bread.
4) Go home, do the boiling water thing with the spaghetti.
5) scrape off all the ground beef from the sandwich into a 20 oz hefty paper bowl.
6) add the sauce until the bowl is full, stir and nuke.
7) strain the spaghetti, slap it on a plate, and add the sauce that is amazingly just enough. The buns from the sandwich are now dinner rolls.
8) serve with iced tea or Pepsi. Enjoy.

My son just called as he was merging on I-35 in Norman, OK. headed this way for the night (surprise!).  He is driving a Ryder rental truck in order to pick up a few things from the Alamo Dome in San Antonio to take back to Norman.  He wants me to cook.  He wants Salmon patties because that's what I was making the other night when he called and it made him have a craving.

So, I am making salmon patties AGAIN.  I will make french fries (homemade) and a salad.  That will have to do.  I am not in the mood to play Wolfgang Puck.  :yawn:

I just finished a large platter of two fried eggs over medium, two slices of wheat toast, several slices of grilled bacon-flavored Spam, and buttered grits.  I won't eat for the rest of the day.  But damn, it was good.  There is nothing better than Louisiana Hot Sauce on eggs.  It is better than Tabasco, which is excellent too.

It's Friday night... which means pizza night here. Probably gonna go get one of those 5 dollar deals down at Little Ceasars... IF they are open. The snow has been canceling a lot of stuff around here, so we'll see.
