    Forgot to post the Christmas dinner I made at my mom’s house. Filets, mashed potatoes, parmesan brussel sprouts, and marsala mushrooms.

    It was plenty. I didn't use real garlic. Plus since it was already cooked from frozen I just wanted to add a little color and temp to them before adding to the mix.

    Beautiful presentation, and Christmas time background.

    Thankfully since I didn't tune in hardly at all this season, I have no belly aches about the Texans. But the burger did cause a bit of a tummy-ache. :D

    Suggestion: Order some Pinquito Beans via Amazon.

    They are what Ranch Style aspire to be.

    QP is only burger I can tolerate from McD's after removal of all radioactive pickles & 90% of onion of unknown vintage, which was also apparently chopped during a severe seizure of some sort.

    Only have it when Bride brings *Surprise*!

    Big Mac is horrifying. I'd rather french-kiss Satan.

    Amazon quantities and/or prices for pinquito beans are crazy. Our local Kroger stores don't carry them. I need to hit up a bodega or two and see if they have some. Need to see if these beans are all the Californians say they are. Of course, I'll need to have a tri tip to go with...T

    When I was working out in the California desert, I stopped at a McDonald's in Needles, I think it was. Since my car was a hooptie, AC didn't work, so I had the windows all open to avoid overheating the car, and myself. I learned a valuable lesson - you can't eat a big Mac with one hand while driving 80+ mph on the interstate in a car with the windows rolled down!

    Soup, and turkey cordon blu on tap for dinner...T

    Finally made some chili after weeks of talking about it.

    Rough recipe as it was quite hearty. Half an onion, half a jalapeno, 3 cloves of garlic was added to the meat for sautee. The fixing had half of a red, yellow, and green pepper, half a carrot, celery stick, and corn. Not even slightly traditional but I had to use some of those.

    1 can of beans, 1 can tomato paste, 1 can fire roasted tomatoes and beef stock. Seasoningi forgot frankly.

    FWIW - Pinquito is an heirloom bean whose growth & harvest is very specific to climate around Lompoc, CA.

    I bought a pork tenderloin roast yesterday. Plan to cut it into medallions, bread them and pan fry them in a mushroom sauce for dinner. Serve over egg noodles.

    McDonald's was the best in the 80s and 90s.

    Good garbage.

    Amazon is silly sometimes. Rancho is a good outfit.

    Isn't a tenderloin kind of a fancy cut to bread?

    Honestly, I can't say I've had them. Don't take MY California word vouching for them! I might have to order some and give a go!
