My sis and BIL were here for a week so we were playing and not cooking on the egg to much. so tonight I need to cook some real food LOL
first the thermopen shot is for the cold weather eggers :) I was in the shade so was a little low to the true temp B)
then chicken tenders on the egg and a breast too.
onions, garlic, and a red and green pepper in a little evo plus the shredded chicken
beans, chicken stock and rotel
topped with chopped scallions, cilantro and grated Monterrey jack cheese.
recipe is here:
it looks like a lot but super easy and a quick cook.
after we left my sis and BIL at the Fort Myers airport we help with a leg of a transport for three rescue dogs. two of them were Chinese crested, the owner had died and no one in the family wanted them :( Alfie and Sydney if I did not already have two fur babies they would have had to come home with us. what sweet sweet dogs!

    I bet that was wonderful. It's great to enjoy good food with good friends.

    I bet if you added a batch of that to your super bowl menu Pat the pot would be empty in no time! makes a big batch and so very good!! and an easy recipe to stretch a little to serve a crowd

    It was Gene and good friends are fun! even if they do try to steal your dishes..... :ohmy:
  • CrimsongatorCrimsongator Posts: 5,795
    Let me know who tried to steal your dishes. I'll take them out. Unless you were an indian giver again. Did you give them the dish and then take it back and make them cry (like you did with me and the dutch oven)

    this is a killer salsa that I found on her site also. the best ever and pretty easy like all her recipes.
    I do the whole thing in my food processor.

    Julie teh soup looks very good.
    But the story about the dogs is a killer having just lost my 14 year old Zoe.
    So good of you doing that.....

    Thanks Mickey, it is so hard to loose a fur baby. "Canine cast a ways" is the group I got my Dexter from two years ago and they are a no kill rescue group. all donations and just nice people. the dogs have all health issues taken care of and micro chipped... all kept in foster homes till forever homes are found. pretty cool so very happy to help.

    Julie, what family is in Florida and my sister called and asked for me to have some chicken tortilla soup ready for her when she returns. I think I'll just direct her your way. The soup looks delicous! :)
