Nice thing about boudin is the fact that it is appropriate for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. No wrong time of day to eat it. I bet it would be good, on a stick, battered; and deep fried like a corn dog. Walking Cajun fast food.

It was 109F here at the house today. Ice/snow cones/ice cream would be nice, but a hamburger works too.

Too hot to eat much of anything here, and it is still 96 F now. I've gagged down a couple of teaspoons of cottage cheese, and two small chunks of pineapple, cold from the fridge. Have to do the grocery store thing in the early am to get more cottage cheese and power ade. I have a piece of fish out thawing to try to pan fry later ( doesn't take long to cook, so less hot in the kitchen area) and will try to eat that. Thinking to mainly pick up melons and grapes and such, everything else just doesn't sound good right now.


At least I should not be gaining weight!!! And the grocery bill will be less.

We must have had a cool front come thru during the night. It only got to 105 today. I'm thinking about cooking on the outside grill this weekend. It is supposed to only reach 108 saturday. I don't plan on lighting the grill, just lay the meat on top of the grill with a meat thermometer in it.

We made it to 108 officially here, so that cool front must a stuck around the metroplex only, LOL!!



The fish idea didn't work out after about 2 bites, so Belle enjoyed it instead.


Probably have to watch the meat closely so it doesn't overcook on that grill, <grin>.

Worth,


That looks pretty darn good. It actually made me hungry for some taco's. I do like some green like chopped onion greens or cilantro in my tacos.

Oh man, after reading 4 pages in the thread to catch up I'm hungry. And I shouldn't be since I went for an all you can eat sushi pig out tonight.

I'm trying not to cook much of anything in the heat over and above the canning I've been doing. So have been hauling prefrozen (homemade) soups, stews, etc out of the freezer and nuking them. Also eating a lot of greens from the garden....or fruits that don't make it into the jams/jellies....and snacking on rolled Armenian dolmas/sarma dolma (Greeks call them dolmades)I made last weekend. Rolled about 400 of them. Family and friends heard through the grapevine that I was making them, so descended to grab some. Managed to "hide" about 100 to keep here at the house for me. lol

Darn....now I've got some serious cravings for Boudin, Tacos, Watermelon and Blackened anything.....sighhhhh....

Did the grocery thing today, earlier than normal since we were going up to 113 and a vehicle gets too darn hot in this weather for groceries and me, as well as the toll on the vehicle it's self. Bought cool things - watermelon, mangoes, cottage cheese, some red grapes (freeze some of them and drop them into your water for cold and a taste treat, too), and the only meat was a rotisserie chicken. So, it was a cheap grocery run and will be cheap to eat in the next week or so as the temps are going higher and I don't want to eat much of nothing, <smile>.



Enjoyed the air conditioning in the stores, even at 9 am, LOL! We are breaking some records here, but at least it is not like the year we had over a hundred days over a hundred degrees!!!
