I think I can answer for most of us...

YES!

I need to stop looking at this when I'm eating my breakfast... somehow a bagel and cream cheese just doesn't seem as good as it did before... ::)

Throw some lox, thin sliced red onion and some capers on it and it will!

Good and bad Nate

Good, cause I love the food you're showing

Bad, because like Bobby, I then look at what I'm eating...never measures up!

But then again, there are those crab cakes...  :-))

Maybe, pass, possibly.

I found some different cream cheeses' made by Philadelphia. I bought the Cinnamon and Brown Sugar one, it's amazing. Once that one is gone I'm going to try out the Honey Pecan.  :)

Well, I've been keeping track of serving size,calories,fat(s), carbs,sodium and et al... So I usually have it for breakfast at 0030 -0100 along with my coffee. But I space the bagel cream cheese days out. But I always have some sort of breakfast sandwich... just starts the day out on a good foot.

so this may start a little strange for some, but I just had a foodgasm in my mouth with the dinner my wife and I cooked this evening.  also, you can beat me up for not taking pics.  truly I didn't think it would have been any different from the last times that I we have cooked these, but for what ever reason I used my char griller smoker, bumped it to 350deg and put them on for 12-14 minutes (depending on how you like them in the middle).

here is the recipe for the burger meat:

1. 1 pound 80-20 beef
2. 1 pound sausage
3. chopped onions
4. chopped jalapenos
5. bread crumbs
6. 1 egg
7. a bit of molasses

1. these were formed and then chilled for about 30 minutes (this should make 4 good size burgers!)
2. put on 350deg smoker for 12-14 minutes
3. placed on a toasted crustini bun
4. a slice of tomato
5. a couple of thin sliced red onion rings
6. condiment of choice

note: (I am a true cheese head and eat as much cheese when and as often as I can) we actually forgot to put cheese on these and didnt even realize it until we were cleaning up and tracey was making my lunch for tomorrow with some of the left overs

I also forgot that tracey has done up some bacon for them as well.

so here is a little glimpse of whats for dinner tonight.

we are going to start off with some blackeyed pea salad.

Ingredients:

1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
Two 15 1/2-ounce cans black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
6 slices cooked applewood smoked bacon, roughly chopped
4 scallions, sliced
1 medium red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
1/2 small red onion, diced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 scallions, chopped, for garnish
(my addition) 1/2 can rotel hot

Directions:

Make the vinaigrette by combining the oil, vinegar, sugar and mustard. Whisk well and then add in the black-eyed peas. Fold in the bacon, scallions, bell peppers and onions. Season well with salt and pepper. Garnish with the chopped scallion. Refrigerate until ready to serve









this recipe is courtesy of guy fieri.  http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/guy-fieri/black-eyed-pea-salad-with-bacon.html

once all that was prepped and assembled and put in the fridge to chill, I pulled out a chicken that tracey butchered up the other day and coated the 8 pieces (both sides) with a little olive oil and some head country bbq seasoning.  then it was off to the other fridge to chill out, relax and soak up some of that flavor in to the meat.  it will be put on the smoker at 325deg and kept there for about 1-1.5hrs.  it will also get coated with some sauce about 20 minutes before its done.

so I read a bunch of garbage that said you cant do pizza on a smoker!

well I beg to differ and I have the pics to prove it.  I turned my pellet smoker to 450deg and they were in for 10 min and came out perfect.  there was no burn on the crust or on the bottom.

here is a BBQ chicken pizza made from last nights left over BBQ chicken, it also has saut?ed onions and mushrooms with some BBQ Sauce









and tracey's pizza was a typical Hawaiian style





and just to note, my pizza stone did not crack.  I have heard too many people say that it will crack in a smoker.  well I say, you either had a defective stone or you did not treat it/season it properly.

and last night, I picked a bunch of herbs from the garden.  a big bunch of cilantro, some chives and a couple sprigs of greek oregano.  the oregano and chives are getting dehydrated and the cilantro got processed and frozen.

so tracey made some Cornish game hens in the cast iron pan and cooked them on the smoker this evening.

she used this video as the basis for her recipe:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okUVmGKKSL8

and here is how they turned out



they went for 90-120 minutes at 350deg

she also has apple crisp in the cast iron dutch oven for a late night dessert.

so tonight is going to be a bit of an experiment.  I am taking some of tracey's burger meat.  rolled it out on a sheet of butcher paper/wax paper, put some pepperoni and some shaved turkey breast on, sprinkled some cheese and painted it with mustard sauce (the recipe is posted).  it is currently sittin in the deep freezer for about 45-60 min.  it will come out, get rolled and put on the smoker at 225 for about 1-2 hrs or until the internal temp is like 175 deg.

burger meat ingredients: bread crumbs, pork sausage, ground beef 80/20, jalapeno's, onions, molasses, spices. 



more pics will follow  ;D

oh there is cheese in there, its sprinkle cheese mixed thru all of the ground meat.

and here is the conclusion of the cook.  it took about 1.5 hrs.  I did 45min @ 225deg smoke and 45 @ 350deg.  I pulled at 165deg internal temp.
