| SEC Rant|| Saturday will feature my guys playing our game - Bulldogs will beat the Bears - MeridianDog on 11/23/14 at 9:06 pm|
38 - 13. A giant chasm will open up in VaughtHemmingway, the U of M faithful will spontaneously combust, melt and drain down into the bowels of the earth.
Key memories from the game:
The bears will not be able to stop our running backs and our passing attack.
Our D will shut them down

Is this considered a Meltdown?
If so, my apologies to fellow Bulldoggers.

It was cool tonight and I had some leftover boiled shrimp, so I thought I'd make some Chowder. After a trip through the refrigerator and pantry I decided I had enough to pull off my recipe so here we go.
To serve four, you'll need:
Half cup of chopped celery
Half cup of chopped onion

I wanted some Smoked Pork today and wound up with what the butcher called "Boneless Pork Country Ribs" I think that is butcher talk for slices of the end of a boneless pork loin.

No grind intended.
Auburn will go down tomorrow. It will be ugly for you idiots. There will be weeping of Auburn women and children as they lament the passing of their hopes for 2014.
Grown Barner men will act like petulant girly-boys, stomping the ground, clenching fists and pounding their c...
| Food and Drink Board|| Sunday Casual Dinner Steak Sandwich (photos) - MeridianDog on 9/28/14 at 8:17 pm|
Here is a nice end of the day meal, done our way. What I want in this sandwich is the flavor of the meat, caramelized onions and balsamic. Any other flavors are wasted on me, so I keep everything simple. I am a sucker for a good baguette and Caters' Deli here in Meridian has good ones in their freez...

We made our quarterly visit to the Meridian Popeye's store on 8th Street after church today and I was shocked!
No, it is still IMO one of the two top level stores in the Popeye's chain with friendly, helpful workers and excellent food. I had a three piece with redbeans and a biscuit. Tasty! The o...

OK - We all know I am kin'da weird.

| Food and Drink Board|| Italian Style Cheesecake - with Ricotta Cheese (Photos) - MeridianDog on 8/17/14 at 4:58 pm|
The wife (MHNBPF) makes two different cheesecake recipes - New York style and Italian style. She is the authority on this stuff and I know the the recipes are very much different, but my opinion is that the main difference is the type of cheese used. New York style uses Cream Cheese and Italian uses...

This will be the longest post I have ever made. On a scale of 1-10 of complexity, I would rate this dish a 7 or 8.
We do Cannelloni entirely from scratch. A lot of work, but it is worth it.
2 cups Semolina flour (you can use AP if you like)
2 (large) eggs

These places were once fairly common, but are sadly disappearing. I have not been to Peggy's in a couple of years but they continue trudging on, doing what they do very well.
