Shells, fresh button mushrooms, Marinara sauce, and buttered wheat bread. Tasty.

Apparently, beer. I'm cool with that though. It's cereal-in-a-can, right?

@jsimsace: been there, done that. But, by god man, eat something so your head doesn't thump every time your heart beats tomorrow morning. ;-)

@lavikinga: Shredded chicken tacos sound excellent. I'll be right there and trade you one of mine for one of yours.

On an unrelated note, my deal for the 22 cent notebook paper has been removed?

Why? Think I'll go with ignorance and apathy here. I don't know and I don't care!

Cheeseburgers (I had Jarlsberg), grilled marinated vegetables (zucchini, grape tomato, red and green sweet peppers, red-skinned potato, mushroom, onions and jalapeno peppers marinated in a balsamic vinegar based vinegrette with (original) Todd's Dirt) and salad (red onion, olives, mushrooms, tomatoes, yellow, orange and green peppers, cucumber, scallions and romaine).

I had a Shocktop Wheat IPA with the above.

Dessert was blueberries and pound cake.

Chicken noodles over mashed potatoes. Quick, easy, filling, and most of all delicious!

@mtm2: How do you make a chicken noodle?

Last night, we made sliders very similar to the Krystal Burger we have down south, or White Castle. One of the kids got the recipe from Good Eats episode about man food. The taste and texture was pretty bang on and we knew there weren't too many weird ingredients (except for the small rolls from the bakery--I wasn't going to make rolls too). Actually pretty easy to make once we figured out we had to assembly line and prep the rolls ahead of time.

@bill7718: "How do you make a chicken noodle?"

There's a joke hiding there, but I just can't get it to come out...

@lavikinga: Those Good Eats little burgers really are quite good and very easy. Now that you've reminded me, I think I'll make them later this week. (Tomorrow, I'm on my own, so it will be leftovers, of the burgers and salad... the veggies didn't survive dinner.)

I was mega lazy, and did frozen potpie tonight.

@lavikinga: I found too many choices, do you have a link handy? All the little burger places near me closed, and despite the recent fad, none of fancy-smancy ones, at other places hit the spot. I want some!!!!! = D

@bill7718: Classified. You just have to have the "secret recipe".

@pickypickypicky: here's the link: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/mini-man-burgers-recipe/index.html

I do a few things differently:

Mince white onions and cook them in a non-stick pan with a few tablespoons of water. When the water is evaporated, the onions are done.

Prep soft little square buns with the spread, add onions & pickle slices if so inclined. Right before the meat is done, zap the buns on a plate in the microwave for about 20 seconds. There's a fine line between gently warming them & making bun crackers.

Roll the meat pretty thinly between two sheets of wax or parchment paper into a large square (my non stick griddle is square). Cut the large square into 9 smaller squares. I'm able to flip the whole thing onto the griddle and peel off the paper backing. The squares sort of separate themselves as they cook. Flip, add cheese, & slap 'em on the rolls. Be warned, the thin meat cooks in a heartbeat.

@lavikinga: Thank you, I'll try them later this week!
