A Link to a Little Dinner

A post like this will either deliver me accolades or screams of horror—and I can almost bet I know who will provide me either response. I know who you are and where you live. We went to Ruler Foods yesterday, a subsidiary of Kroger, and a store that is very much like an Aldi, and I decided to get some Bar-S cheddar smoked sausage links. They are actually quite good, according to me, and so quick and easy and relatively cheap to boot, it just works. So, I boiled these up and we had the sausage with some Walmart deviled egg potato salad on the side and we also had broccoli with some Miracle Whip dabbled on top. I know I always get puke faces for my broccoli combination, but I swear to you it is good eats. What went on your dinner table last night?

I love those kind of sausages, but they don't love me! This afternoon we fried shrimp and cornbread with slaw and stewed potatoes. Once in a while I buy shrimp ready to cook, but we bought these from a seafood market.

@porwest The dinner was good, but I fried the shrimp a few seconds too long. It's so hard not to do that.

lol. Some foods can certainly have "that" effect on some. I am glad to say these particular sausages "take no issue with me." Your dinner sounds delicious as well. I love me some fried shrimp.

@1creekgirl It really is. I hope it didn't do too much harm. I know it can get a little rubbery if you are not careful.

I see you got a series of puke faces, but NOT for the broccoli. I made a Chinese dinner to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Shrimps Dim Sum, Cantonese Fried Rice and custard tarts.

I was almost sure she would like neither my sausages nor my Miracle Whip. Oh well. It was good to me, and the wifey liked it, so that's all that matters to me. lol. Your dinner sounds delicious as well.

@porwest I thought to celebrate Chinese New Year.

@LadyDuck I have never really paid much attention to the Chinese New Year, personally.

@porwest It's easier than trying to microwave something. Hubby's cousin makes up a bunch for me.

lol. Yeah. I wouldn't even allow that to be called dinner in my house. But of course, it's not my call in yours. Bon Appetit? lol

It all looks good to me. I am not a fan of yellow mustard but I love honey mustard.

@porwest I agree different mustard go with different things.

I don't mind yellow mustard. My wife prefers brown mustard or Dijon. It depends what I am using it for, for me.

Everything looks great except for the yellow liquid next to the sausage. I had indomie instant noodles for dinner yesterday.

@porwest mustard is such a nice name compared to how it looks

That yellow liquid was just mustard.

@mildredtabitha It's basically just a condiment like ketchup or horseradish sauce or tartar sauce or something like that.

I love your broccoli. This is a plate I would not say no to. Looks delicious. Last night I had rice with chicken curry and lentils.

I am surprised. Most people scoff at the Miracle Whip with it. But we like it very much.

Man, I cannot remember what I ate last night. I like to take orange wedges and squeeze them over steamed broccoli. At school I put ranch on broccoli for my student. School veggies are often quite bland. That plate, minus the Miracle Whip, looks just like something my husband would eat. And love every bit of it.

Usually I respond to Linda's posts, so they serve as a bit of an archive of sorts for me. lol. But it can be hard to remember, for sure. Ranch is good on broccoli as well and we have done that too, although much less often. Sometimes we'll throw on some French onion dip too.

Last night was leftover night. We cleaned the frig. out! Tonight I just stopped at Arby's and got Classic Roast Beef sandwiches since I was gone to the flea market all afternoon. It worked! Your meal looks good and would be a nice change of pace every now and then!

We never say 'sausage links' although it's obvious what they are. We just call them sausages.

Normally we do too, here. I just thought it would make for a good title. lol The only thing I ever refer to as a "link" is a breakfast sausage link. All the rest are just sausages.

Well, regardless of your unfair and egregious puke faces, I was quite fond of both of your oppositions. lol

I like sausages. I usually eat them for breakfast. Had tomato and cheese pasta last night.

In the United States, this type of sausage would not typically be a "breakfast sausage," although one can of course to choose to eat whatever type of sausage they want any time of the day. Your pasta sounds good.

You have a strange food mixture you eat that would make me think twice about eating it. But it's your gut not mine, so I'll just stick to what I like to eat & hope you don't get sick.

We had salad, some fresh homemade bread, and chili. There will always be someone that doesn’t like what you fix or eat. I read various people’s food posts at times and think oh, no way…give yourself some credit for actually taking the time to make something to eat. In this wacky world we live in, so many people just eat fast food every day and then wonder why they are out of money.
