For some reason, you don't hear much about shrimp sandwiches.

The pictures look awesome! They're some good cooks that frequent this thread! I love shrimp po' boys, worth! Leftovers for us from Thanksgiving(we did ours Saturday). I told them I wasn't cooking this wk. Y'all have given me some good ideas for future menus.

Going back to the Thanksgiving posts I think if there was a couple of suggestions how local grocery stores could serve us better that sales reps and management are watching for, here's a couple of my ideas. Make the Thanksgiving sales 2 wks. Not everyone does their Thanksgiving the 3rd Thursday in November in the U.S. For the butcher and others who work in the meat depts. teach them how to butcher meats as in debone fowl and cut fowl in half, prepare different cuts of meats to customer's requests(hmm that's also a good human interest course that local colleges could offer along with how to sharpen blades and properly clean and sanitize equipment).

I think most of the people in the meat department where I shop are there just to draw a paycheck.
Heaven forbid you ask them to de-bone a bird, you should see how they wrap the meat in butcher paper.
Milne looks horrible because I am out of practice.
Some of theirs looks like a drunken baboon did it.

The young ladies do a way better job and way more enthusiastic than the guys.

As ya'll know I like Asian food and especially ramen. I found what I think is the best cheap(.49¢) ramen ever.

I didn't know it was a very popular ramen till I looked it up after eating some. I found it by chance too, I was at the Asian store and looking for new ramen to try, they only have 100 different kinds so picking one is a pain. I used a highly scientific method to choose a few. All of the ramen is in the original shipping boxes so I just grabbed a few from the boxes that had the most missing. I know, genius right?

Here's what it looks like. You can get them on Amazon but they're more expensive.



I found this video while searching. I hate to be the poor guy that takes her to dinner, she's a garbage disposal but makes it look normal. I still can't believe this skinny girl ate 6 packs of ramen and 5 fried eggs like it was nothing.

Indonesian food and people rule big time in my book.
First experience was in Amsterdam of all places.
Amsterdam has a huge Indonesian population.

Leg quarters on sale for .47¢ a lb, I might have to stock up!!!

I tried the Pioneer Roasted Chicken gravy and it's really good for packaged gravy.

May look expensive but it is cheap.
Something else you can do with anaconda.
One inch thick or so acaconda steak pounded out thin.
One small Granny Smith apple peeled and sliced thin.
Smattering of raisins.
Chopped pecan.
Nutmeg.
Allspice.
Cinnamon.

Slathered rouladen in homemade lard and put in skillet.
Baked in oven flipping from one side to next with onions in the lard.
Salt and pepper top and bottom.
Made wine reduction with drippings and onions and a wee bit of corn starch.
The rest is stuffed celery spinach and raw cranberry relish.
Off the hook and cheap.

Sunset brand grape tomatoes are cheap at the local HEB. It's a pint for $1.38. The package says that it's an extra sweet grape tomato, but they are actually on the slightly acidic side of balanced. They are greenhouse grown in Mexico. The reason why I'm mentioning them is because they taste good. I wouldn't mind growing them myself, but they're probably a hybrid. It is a good sign though - store bought tomatoes that taste pretty good.
