For New Year’s Eve, my husband and I indulged with burgers and fries at Big Earl’s Greasy Eats.
What’s in a name? We’ve driven by Big Earl’s Greasy Eats for two years. Finally, we took the plunge and ordered the Big Earl Burgers and fries to take home.
They were just as delicious as a place named Greasy Eats promised. But then I felt sick for the rest of the day. Too much food (or grease) that I ate too fast. I couldn’t eat again for that day.
This was my burger and fries from Big Earl’s.
While we were celebrating Christmas with the family, we cooked and mostly ate in the VRBO. One of the special dishes I liked was roasted vegetables cooked by one of my son’s fiancee’s sisters. It was so delicious I made it at home.
Brussels sprouts, onions, garlic, sweet potatoes, bell peppers and carrots tossed in olive oil with fresh rosemary. Roasted in the oven at 400 degrees about 45 minutes.
The roasted veggies made me feel so much better than the burger and fries!
What are your favorite things to cook or what do you like most when you dine out?
The roasted veggies look delicious. I will have to try that. One of my favorite dishes to cook I made for New Year’s Day; homemade pea soup with delicious fresh ham and a dollop of sour cream on top. My favorite to eat out is a good juicy hamburger or quiche.
The sister who made the roasted veggies made us split pea soup with ham over Christmas. It was so good!
The ham is expensive and a lot for two people but I have enough for 2 more meals. A good sale on ham and leftovers…a win!
We had a ham on Christmas Eve but we had 10 people! I was thankful for enough left over for split pea soup!
Yes, I bought a small quarter but it still a lot of meat.
It would be for two!
Yum! I love split pea soup!
I roast and eat so many varieties and combos of vegetables. They make up most of my weekly meals in some form or other. I have a small satellite restaurant just 2 blocks away. The main and original one is in the next city. It’s a mix of cuisines but everything is full on grease. I ate there once and felt horrible for 2 days. I’ve never gone back.
I love roasted veggies. I still like beef, chicken and fish, but I can eat mainly salads and vegetables.
Happy New Year! Just recently I made up a dish. Sauteed onions, yellow squash, eggplant. Add a can of Mexican diced tomatoes and/or can og stewed tomatoes and then serve over rice. It’s become a staple here now. Thanks for the roasted veggie recipe! Yum!
That sounds delicious! I’ll give it a try. Thank you.
I like it because it’s super easy and fairly healthy. 😊
My hubby’s uncle is from Sicily and he salts eggplant or soaks it in salt water before cooking to get the bitterness out. Does your dish need that?
Oh, I’ve never heard of doing that. It makes sense. But, no. I just chop it up and throw it into the skillet after the onions and the squash has cooked a bit. We get the bigger purple eggplant 🍆 So far,non
So far, none have been bitter 👍
I never heard it either until
I watched my husband’s uncle prepare eggplant.
Hmmm…I just love cooking, but pasta would be my fave. When I eat out I like to try things I would never make at home, or when the dining version is far superior to my homemade
Yes, I tend to order food I don’t make at home when we go out. Although my own burgers are better than what we get out at restaurants. I’m not sure why we order them.
This may sound simplistic-but to make a good hamburger is the best. Simple but a good one makes your mouth water. I love blue cheese crumbles on top and without the roll, keto.
Sanity says “home cooked!”; greed says “eat out!”
That’s a great way to put it. 😊
I Love Fresh Veggies and Fruits eat a lot of them. Buying food once in a way. But I mostly cook at home. Slightly boiling Brussel sprouts and with fresh butter is one of my favorites and also Mashed potatoes 🙂
I love mashed potatoes and brussels sprouts!
Grilled Pork Chops with a side of Thick Lasagna. Oh yeah.
Wow! When am I invited?
