It was a lazy Sunday night and I craved chicken wings.  Instead of firing up the BGE, I ordered out from a local sports bar.   :-&  They were flavorless and so disappointing that we threw them away and filled-up on beer & cookies.   
I'm sure most of us have similar stories of restaurant disappointment after eating Egged food! :)

    I feel your pain, Kristi.  We never go to pizza joints, steak houses, or Chinese restaurants (well, almost never).  That pretty much only leaves Italian and TexMex in this part of the country.  And, I am working on my final enchilada recipe that my knock out the TexMex too.

    You sound like something is wrong with beer and cookies. Hell, add in some ice cream and invite me over.

    Like VI says, not a lot of options open on eating out that you can't do better.

    Since I have my BGE I always have left overs, cause I cook way too much. So we would not run into that, but the beer and cookies...shouldn't run out on those either. Will have to make a note of that.
  • There is absolutely nothing wrong with beer & cookies -- I always have plenty of them on hand.   Wine, cheese, and chocolate, too.  :D  A girl can't be too prepared for these types of emergencies.

    That statement right there is the nail in the proverbial coffin...I am indeed a Lesbian trapped in a man's body. LOL

    Since BGE we longer care so much for most of our local grills, steak houses, or BBQ joints because we do better at home!

    A couple of years ago at Texas someone ( could be Joan or Tweety or )made some bacon cookies on the egg that were outstanding.

    Maybe crispy thin chocolate chip red cayenne oatmeal cookies?

    How 'bout smoky jalepeno ham cornbread cookies?

    Maple brown sugar peanut bacon?

    Sorry, getting carried away!

    The dealership where I bought my first egg (Large) had just finished a batch of choco-chip cookies, but I'm not into sweets.
    They sure smelled good, though!

    I share your pain.  My wife loves to cook.  I love my BGE.  There isn't much out there that comes close to what we can put out.  We do go out for Ethipian, sushi, Indian and dim sum because doing those at home is more trouble than it's worth for us anyway.  Yup, the BGE has turned us into stay-at-homes but the relatives and neighbors are delighted because we put out more than we can eat and give away the rest!
