The last post slipped to page 2, so I thought I would start a new one. If I'm getting ahead of myself, I apologize.

Anyhow, had eye glasses appointment today, and had the eyeball scan thing that they do, and turns out that I have a good sized retinal tear. Nice. So I'm waiting to hear from a higher level of eye doctor most likely tomorrow to be evaluated and to get my eyeball glued back together. Sigh. Never a dull moment here, and you can't even make this crap up.

Anyhow, we came home, and I fired up the pan, and made fajitas with onions and garden peppers, which improved my mood considerably. What did y'all have?

Sorry to read about your eye. I am hopelessly visually oriented, losing my sight would
be the end of the world.

[FF] What's For Dinner Part II. Hey! Could be a whole lot worse.

Pasta got mentioned a few times this past week so figured I should stuff my guts.
Diced and fried some yellow onion and bratwurst. Cooked spaghettini in on top of that.
Enough stuff for an Alfredo. 10% pasta, 90% really goopy sauce. Asked my shopper to pick out a better quality white wine, she did OK.

Hope the doctor is able to correct your eye problem and everything will be good as new.

Supper for me was stacked beef enchiladas with a queso blanco sauce, taquitos and a tomato and cucumber salad.

Goodbye, What’s for Dinner I, my old friend. I kind of feel like I am getting a divorce, but if STUD supports this move, I am all in!
I ate a hotdog last night, not worthy of a pic. ;-).
(I feel like I should print the entire what’s for dinner, old version, before it goes archived and all those pics disappear. ). My brain does not archive too well anymore! ??. Brad

I'm locking the original What's for Dinner topic because 124 pages is long enough for one thread. This will be the new one. If you have pictures you want to save, please copy them now before the thread goes into the archives.

Edited to note original thread can be found here:  https://www.banjohangout.org/topic/363419

Remember the days when BConk was showing off his "boules" of artisan bread made with a wild yeast that he isolated? I wanted some of that yeast, just about the time for it to totally die out.

I've tried to get wild yeasts off my ripe grapes at picking time (sugar/water/flour) but not a thing ever starts to foam up at all. Must be age. I don't even make scratch pizza crust or sauce any more.

Nothing wrong with the thread at all, just too many pages.

FYI:  I did contact Fig.... STUD ... to ask if he had any problem with my locking it and using the new thread.  He said he didn't.

I actually read through all 90+ pages (at the time) while doing the chemo thing. It kind of was comforting to me to see that that people were still doing 'normal cookery things'. Then I looked at the early dates and realized the time frame. Kind of a snippet of history, if you will. Thank you :)

 

Oh, and got the call--gotta go about 2 hrs away tomorrow AM to see the eyeball specialist. Depending on what is going on, there's a good chance they may do whatever is needed to fix my problem. I'm hoping so, and I'm hoping it's not too major, as I don't really need to miss any more work, but compared to the last year, this is a small problem, so there's that. If y'all don't mind, could you toss some thoughts my way? Thanks.

Found some X-lean beef burger from a local ranch. Found some Herb & Garlic chip dip seasoning
that's the BEST! in burgers, 1 tbsp per pound. Probably egg and breadcrumb and some salt.
I'll cook maybe 4 burgers 4oz tonight and cover the rest in the fridge to age over night and do all the rest (2+ lbs) tomorrow night for a freezer stash.
All the trimmings and I hope they are really juicy/sloppy.

Brian- those burgers sound incredibly good! Other than the egg, as I have an allergy to those, too. You cannot go wrong with a good burger.

Thank you everyone for the thoughts, and good wishes. I'm just kinda 'oogy' about having them do this eye thing. One would think that with all the fun I've had over the past year with the lung cancer/removal of said lung/chemo/etc, not a lot could bother me, but guess I've seen too many awful sci-fi movies with eyeball drilling. Thanks again!

Had surgery on both my eyes some years ago to replace my lenses. Never felt a thing and damned of I wasn't rockin' the sexy pirate look with the eyepatch! 

You whupped up on cancer, you can take on this issue, too. Sure, there is an "oogy" factor when someone starts messing around with a person's eyeballs, but when you got folks that care about you, friends, family and banjo pickers, them you got a lot of backup.

We ordered a grinder attachment for Terry's Kitchen Aid mixer. I looked it up & figured we'd get the metal version. We ordered the plastic one by mistake! It works great! I've been grinding up simmering (Blade steaks) with a hunk of fat.

I put the meat & fat in the freezer until it's easy to slice up into strips to push through the cold grinder parts from the freezer. So much better than trying to cook up a hockey puck/boot heel burger! 

Home ground  are the best burgers! We made small patties & cooked them on the fire pit over charcoal. She makes sourdough bread & buns plus pizza crust plus other baked goodies. I test it & then she takes the rest to work! 

We had a couple tries at Italian fennel sausage too. Need to step up the fennel again! Terry made spaghetti & meatballs with it. Not too hard. We watch our salt & use lots of other herbs & spices.

I'm close enough to the local ranches that I can ask what the muscle/fat content of the burger is.
Tonight was beef burgers (no egg, Paula) 1" thick cooked and into Ciabatta bun with ketchup and Dijon.
I made 6 and ate one, the rest are freezer treats all this week.

You put on a vinyl glove. Mix, mash and stir and go and go and go. The burger will go from wormy-looking to original pasty fibrous. Then, the burgers do not come apart. You can make shapes that stick together.

Well, turns out it's a bit more serious Than I thought. Waiting to hear what time I go for surgery today (still at clinic), as it's a borderline detached retina. No idea how it happened. Upshot is that after it's done, no phone, computer, or reading for at least 2 weeks. So I'll be back with an update when I'm cleared to use my eyeballs again. ;)

It will be okay.

Liz here:
I marinated the veggies and pork chops in the last of a bottle of Italian dressing. Then I sprinkled the chops with Tony Chachere's Creole Seasoning and added some panko crumbs, and grilled everything on the gas grill. Made a box of wild rice pilaf on the side. The pork came out really well - not dry at all, and the vegetables were cooked but not mush.
