Grilling Menu: Stuffed Jalapeno-Cheddar Burgers and Cajun Sweet Potato Fries

Stuffed Burger Uncut Snap

I make these all the time because they really are easy and a great way to have a cheeseburger without losing half the cheese to the grill. And the sweet potato cajun fries are the perfect sweet, spicy combo.  Grill some peaches, pears or plums and dinner is done. Enjoy.

On the board tonight:

  1. Jalapeno-Cheddar Stuffed Burgers
  2. Kaiser Rolls
  3. Cajun Sweet Potato Fries
  4. Grilled Sweet Corn  (pull husks back, clean off silk, wash, pull husks up & grill-yum!)
  5. Plums

Chili Mac and Friends

I get a little twist in my world when I need to describe this as chili mac because elbow mac is the only perfectly correct way to make this dish.  Penne with ridges are first runner up and win the congeniality crown.Of course I made dogs.  I decided to also serve those two sides.  That pasta salad has seen the last of the big elbows unless I decide to visit the only store when I can find them.  It’s just that the store is on the wrong side of the county.  Every other thing that I need I can get buy going down the road the other way.

Ham & Eggs

We made a run to a new store that began selling stuff last Friday.  They were set up well and observed all the Covid precautions.  We needed a lunch, fast, so I fired up the griddle.
