Finally! Football season is almost here. We have the first Saints pre-season game this Sunday at 7:00 pm which is also tha Hall of Fame exhibition game being played in Canton Ohio. It seems like it's been a couple of years since we've seen any football what with all the Saints bounty controversy and players appealing. I'm glad we can finally get to playing and watching instead of all that bs. Which brings us to this. "What to have to eat for watching football?" I was thinking about throwing some steaks on the grill but it's been a while since I made some burgers. In fact I might do something I haven't done in a long time. Then again sliders would be fantastic "football game food". I'll have to think a little more about that. Gotta figure out what to eat before that.
Oh, I have to mix up a few batches of my homemade rubs too. I got an email the other day from a guy that I swapped some of my rubs for some of his family made cane syrup(they have a sugar cane farm)and he wants to BUY what basically comes to a few pounds of three of my grilling rubs/seasonings. That's pretty cool to me. He loves them. I just might have to look into having them produced and sold.
Decisions, decisions, so many good things to make and eat. What ch'all cookin' and eatin' this weekend?
Sounds good Jim. Here's my plan for tomorrow. Going to a party tonight = no cooking. I'm getting ready to go out to the supermarket for a nice roast to grind up for Patty Melt sandwiches for the Saints game. I haven't made these in a good while. This is one of those throwback meals that reminds me of when I'd go downtown on the bus with my mom to Woolworth or Kress on Canal St.
Hey Jason, how are you doing? I was thinking about you the other day. You know it's almost that time of the year for me to come up and cook for those 700+ triathlon participants but, I won't be making it up there this year. Too many conflicting things going on. I had to tell them to get someone else this year. Glad to see you still check in on things here.
Finally getting around to posting todays cook. This morning I mixed the meat with a few dry seasonings and put it into 1 gal. Ziplock bags and flattened it out for the patty melt patties. Into the fridge to let that sit until I'm ready to cut them into patties.
After that I made some peach turnovers with puff psatry. I was supposed to make fried cherry pies but couldn't find my cherry pitter. So I made peach turnovers instead. Cherry pies or pie will come latter this week.
Also made some sugary cinnamon sticks.
Getting down to business now. Starting with some onions and some of one of my homemade hot vinegar sauces. Oh, I decided to cook these inside what with the steamy humid weather we had today. I used my cast iron pizza pan/griddle.
Onions done! It was hard to not eat them just like that.
Gotta have some fresh smothered mushrooms!
Griddling the patties. I also made some slider sized that my daughter loves.
My sandwich with a frosty cold Samuel Adams Summer Ale.
I was going to make french fries but again the heat was terrible so instead we went the classic route with potato chips. Oh, I also had pepperjack cheese on mine. Very good meal!!!!!!

Nate, you got using my pizza griddle inside on the stove. Last night I pounded out some boneless pork and used your citrus rub. Thanks to Vindi, I made some sammies with them. Had them on onion hamburger buns. Thanks guys for the inspire -JimZ
