Some great looking food here!

My first contribution to this thread is something my father grilled over at our house for my daughter's 1st birthday this weekend. These kabobs were amazing! Beef and lamb, marinated with my father's Cuban mojo. Also a nightime pic of one of my papaya trees! I was never a fan of papaya until my Dad planted these in my yard. They are amazingly delicious! It's got 2 offshoots and hopefully within a month or two I will show pics here of the fruit sliced up!

Nice lookin parties, ya'll! Biggest bowl of PEPPERJACK I've seen all summer.


Yesterday we hosted nerdy role playing game day- a bunch of gamers and a bunch of snacks and a bunch of beer:
Home made tomato sauce, sauteed mushrooms, Trader Joe's pizza dough.

HOLY COW!!!! It's an avalanche of food!

ATP and Chris, I never thought about smoke pork in Mexican food before but it's a perfect match. A little chili dry rub - hmmm...... ATP, I hope those habaneros were just for decoration

Tom, now you're thinking like Man vs Wild - eat what you have to to survive

Robert, welcome to the food fest, nice lookin' 'bobs you got there. I planted a papaya tree last month and it was looking a little wilted in our 110+ temps. I gave it some shade and more water and it is loving the heat now - putting on all kinds of new leaves. Who knows if it will ever fruit here though.

Yummy pizza Amy, you can blame your pizza cravings on ATP

Wow! big food Explosion on the thread this week, nice job everybody!

Amy,you may be right about the Bowl of PEPPERJACK,an awsome mountain of cheese that was, the game talk though, Gurps,the dice have BO or something ???
you lost me at Gurps? where is Gamma world? obviously I know nothing of gaming!

Mike, Smoked meats make great Mexican food! now I get to use the leftovers to make "Smoked Pork Taquitos!" a favorite in my house!
Those peppers were just for decoration, got a bag of mini red & yellow bell peppers, great for eating too.

between the "what does posting pictures of Pizza have to do with the subject matter" and "It made me want Pizza!" PMs I got from
my reign of terror the other day, I would say 2 percent of TCers were not amused,But the rest either made pizza,got a pizza or just lusted after Pizza, I think I helped the Pizza shops out a bit!

Thanks WestaDad! your turning into a BBQ Pitmaster!

Zerostreet! another artist who cooks,is there a correlation between creative types of personalities & cooking?
me thinks so, unless your LittleLostTiki, who is a fine Artist,but could not cook his way out a paper bag.

OK, I am on the verge of a new food invention - BELGIAN MEAT WAFFLES!!!!

I likes me a good meatball sub but the meatballs always try to squirm their way out of the sandwich. I considered an oblong, bread-sized meat patty but there is not enough surface area and the meat to sauce ratio would be off. But if you form the patty and cook it in a Belgian waffle maker it would have all those divots to hold more sauce and melted cheese! Will commence beta testing on my next day off

PS - My son had a Belgian waffle in Belgium last week, said it was the best waffle he ever had!

I usually just cut the meatballs in half before putting them on the bun, but always want to encourage playing with food.

Thanks Chris!

Good luck with the papaya tree MDM!

ATP - Don't know how good a cook I am compared to some people here....I'll try to post a bit regularly here though!

Amy - I'm an ex rpg'er myself! Whereas you married into it (that made me laugh BTW)...I kinda married out of it! Haven't played in years!

Hello everybody!

We had a "Is it Summer Yet? BBQ party"
Served Smoked Pork Taco's with all the fixings, Homemade Salsa,Guacamole,PEPPERJACK Cheese!BBQ Tortilla's etc.
Smoked Chicken Drumsticks, Smoked Italian Sausages,Fresh Herb Red Potato salad,Pasta Salad,BBQ Corn with Rosemary Butter
Jello "Everyone want's Jello" & a Serve yourself Ice Cream bar for Desert.
Stacey brought great corn bread & guests brought appetizers, Taking a breath now....




ATP, you really outdid yourself with that incredible spread. The slow cooked meat was tender and delicious. It was also very spicey, requiring consumption of additional Mai Tais. I guess that was part of your plan!

Stacey's corn bread was also outstanding--I now know her culinary talents extend well beyond Lapu Lapu making.

Mike, Outstanding! job taking on your Olive preparation, I don't think I have ever done such an involved
project, you may have a new thing going on with MadDogMikes Olive Co.

I am picturing you in one of those Greek outfits with the folding hats with a tassel
and a little ornate vest on.




Not this one!
