Best of 2007- Calzones


Billy's pick for best of 2007- Calzones! I don't know why we haven't considered a calzones month before.

Best of 2007- Carnitas


My pick for best of 2007: pork carnitas enchiladas.

Best of 2007- CFS


The unanimous choice for best of 2007: Chicken Fried Steak.

Best of 2007- Chili Dogs


Robby's choice for best of 2007 is a selection from Concession Foods Month- Chili Dogs.

The Rest of Soup Month


Simply for posterity's sake...

Week 2: Potato Corn Chowder

Week 3: Chili (and damn good chili, if I may add)

Soup du Week- Minestrone


Yeah, I don't know what "week" is in French, but you get the jist. Up first in November is Minestrone. Hot damn, I can't wait!

Woktoberfest: The final two weeks


So what's up for this week? I think Pad Thai Shrimp seems like a really good idea. I've got a recipe already.

Last week we did Panang Curry Chicken. Y'know, just so we have a record of it on the blog

This Week: Mexican Fried Rice


Who says Woktoberfest has to be all about Chinese food? How about some nice fried rice with onions, peppers, tomatoes and pork? Sounds good to me.

Panang Curry recipe


Here's a basic recipe.

We should probably add some ginger and garlic, depending on how it tastes.


2 pounds meat (beef, chicken or pork)
1 can coconut milk
8 oz panang curry paste
2 tablespoons fish sauce
2 tablespoons kafir lime leaves (cut into shreds)
1/2 cup basil leaves
2 tablespoons sugar

1. Cut your meat into bite sized cubes. Using a medium to large skillet, pan fry the meat until it is almost done, then remove it and set it aside.
2. Using medium heat, add in four tablespoons of coconut milk, and let it come to a boil.
3. Add in 2-3 tablespoons of curry paste.
4. Put the meat back in, and stir until the meat is thoroughly cooked.
5. Add in half of the remainder of coconut milk. Keep stirring.
6. Add the fish sauce and the sugar.
7. Add in the rest of the coconut milk.
8. When the coconut milk thickens, add in the basil leaves and lime leaves.
9. Give it a taste. You may need to add in more fish sauce or sugar depending on your preference.




As anything cooked using a wok is outside of my past experience of both preapring and consuming food, I will defer all meal-related decisions to Billy and Robby this month. So what are we eating thsi week, boys?

This Week: Beef?????????


What are we having tomorrow?

Also, I suggest that post-TT, we watch Troll 2 with Riff Trax.

This Week: 59-cent Tacos


So there's this place in Lincoln called King Taco, which used to be the Taco Inn at 10th & High. They have 59-cent tacos on Wednesday and Saturday, and that even includes sour cream. It's very convenient that their taco sale day falls on our Taco Tuesday day, and I imagine we'll be returning regularly.

This Week: Philly Chese Steaks


So we haven't really offiially decided whether this is Beef Month or specifically Steak Month, but week #2 keeps the option open.

This Week: Chicken-Fried Steak


What better way to kick of Beef Month than with one of the all-time Taco Tuesday successes, Chicken-Fried Steak?

A History of Taco Tuesday, Part 1


We've prepared no less than 22 unique dishes over the nine months or so Taco Tuesday has been in existence. Here's what was memorable enough to, well, remember:

Beef Tacos (OG, Soft Shell, Double Decker, Fried)
Breakfast Burritos
Burger Challenge
Camitas Tacos
Camitas Enchiladas
Camitas Pupusas
Cheese Steaks
Chicken Fajitas
Chicken-Fried Steak
Chili Dogs
French Toast Sandwiches
Hobo Meals
Homemade Pizza Crusts
Pizza Subs
Sausage Fest
Steak Challenge
Store-bought Pizza Crusts

Several of these dishes were made as part of a theme month. Themes have included:

Breakfast Foods
Escalating Pizza (increasingly complex and delicious forms of pizza)
Month of Grilling
Mexican Meats
Concessions Stand Foods

We've also eaten out a few times since we were too lazy to cook. Here's where we went:

M&N Sandwiches
Wacky Weiners at Haymarket Park

A Proposal


Since we've been having a hard time coming up with a fifth week of vendor foods, I have a proposal:

Any time there is a fifth Taco Tuesday in a month, we revert back to the one that started it all, tacos.

That is all.



This Wednesday, Aug 22: Wings.

Might I suggest we grilling. And we each bring a different sauce in which to cook the wings.

Hot sauce

I Love Taco Tuesday!


Welcome to the official blog of Taco Tuesday, which, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, I love.

Who exactly am I?

What is this strange emotion called love?

All will be revealed in due time.
