One Hundred Followers

My thanks goes out to everyone who helped me reach this milestone (even though "Followers" widget seems to be broken right now. It must be overwhelmed with followers).  I look forward to sharing more of my favorite recipes and sports takes with everyone.  Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to have a celebratory cig.

Corn Nuggets

This is one of my favorite foods ever.  They are amazing.  This recipe is kind of a pain in the ass to make, so if you haven't had them before I would suggest ordering them at a bar or restaurant.  That way you will be properly motivated when you are stumbling your way through the preparation.

Beef Stew

I thought I would post a flexible recipe today.  This is a beef stew that is extremely easy to make (all you need is a crock pot and a pulse) and can be served a couple different ways.  You can eat it by itself, or over potatoes or noodles.  Heres the recipe:


  • 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can condensed Cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 package beef with onion soup mix
  • 3 pounds beef stew meat


  1. Pour the cream of mushroom soup, cheese soup and onion soup mix into a slow cooker, and mix well. Add beef, cover and cook on Low for 8 hours, or on High for 4 to 5 hours. 
  2. Eat

Chicken Fried Steak

Last night I had my first chicken fried steak in a long while.  I enjoyed it so much I thought I would link you guys to the recipe.  Not the easiest dish to make, but well worth it.  This recipe isn't fried either so it won't slow you down.  Enjoy.

The Heat Pull Ahead

Chris Bosh took over the game tonight as the Miami Heat take a 2-1 lead over the Chicago Bulls.  Miami's won the last 2 games handily.  Are the Bulls done, or do you think they'll even it up tomorrow night?

No Rapture?

I'm assuming that, like me, you were ready for the rapture and stopped planning your life beyond this evening.  If that's the case, you're probably wondering what to make for lunch tomorrow.  You've come to the right place.  Try these Guinness-Marinated Bison Steak Sandwiches (If bison is not your thing, you can substitute beef rib eye steaks).

Here's a link to the recipe if you're interested:

Good Night Macho Man

It is with deep remorse that I bring you tragic news.  One of my childhood icons Macho Man Randy Savage died in a car accident earlier today.  He will be missed.

Steak it is

A man's meal on a woman's plate.

Dinner Tonight?

I'm thinking about grilling tonight.  Any suggestions? Ill post pics.

Mavericks vs OKC

There's a big game tonight in the Western Conference finals.  Dallas vs OKC.  If Dallas wins they will take a commanding 2 to 0 lead in the series.  But if Oklahoma City can win one, they will tie the series at 1 game before heading back to their home court.  Does anyone have a prediction about the outcome? 

And they're off....

My first Blog...hope you all enjoy it
