Cookin with the Grandkids!

Every guy is a kid inside and what better way to celebrate being a kid 'again' than cooking with the grand-kids. They like what I like ...burgers with mac and cheese. And, I mean mac and cheese on the burger. To make this kid and 'weight watcher' as in grandpa friendly, use good quality ground turkey for the burger meat. I like to simmer mine with dried herbs so that a tasty au jus develops; which of course, makes for a great dipping sauce.

Cook your pasta, drain when tender add a dollop of butter and then 1/4 cup of heavy cream along with 1/2 cup sour cream and as much grated cheddar as you possibly can, stir. When the burgers are done, serve on toasted rolls. Let everyone seated at the table put on their own amount of mac and cheese to top their burger. Kids also like to have their own dipping cup with au jus. So.. to each his/her own.

Pierogi and Smoked Sausage!

Guys let me tell you that if you ever have to cook for yourself, the simplest and most delicious hearty guy food is a plate of pierogi and smoked sausages. All you have to do is boil some water for the pierogi. The sausages, (bought fully cooked from your favorite Polish deli) just need to be warmed in the microwave. There is no need to fry them as you will lose flavor and juices from the meat.

10-12 Pierogi need about 8 min. in a rolling boil, water salted to taste.

Sour cream and bacon bits on the side are a must...

Enjoy! I sure did, and...a nice glass of
beet root juice to cleanse; my after dinner drink!
