Summer Chicago-Style Recipe

A summer yummy! This is a Chicago-Style Sausage and Peppers (from chef Susan Goss). Remember that sausages of the meatless variety are VERY good and contain soy. Soy butter can be substituted as well.

2 tablespoons corn oil, 1 large red onion (thinly sliced), 2 large yellow bell and red bell peppers (cored, seeded and thinly sliced), ¼ cup Jack Daniel’s Sour Mash Whiskey, ¼ cup dark brown sugar, 1 Tablespoon chopped fresh thyme, Salt and pepper to taste, 8 (4-oz) spicy Italian sausages (or as I like: the Boco Meatless Italian Sausages found in your grocery freezer section), 8 hot dog buns, 2 tablespoons reserved sausage grease or soft butter.

In a large skillet, heat the corn oil over medium heat. Add onions, and peppers and sauté until they are tender and begin to brown (about 10 minutes). Add the whiskey and stir quickly until absorbed. Add the brown sugar and stir until the sugar melts. Season with the thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. This can be refrigerated for up to 1 week; however, let it come to room temperature before serving. Chargrill sausages until slightly blackened and cooked through. Brush hotdog buns with grease or butter and toast over the grill. Nestle 1 sausage in a bun, and top with about 2 tablespoons of the peppers and onions.

it's only fittin

I think it's WEIRD after you poop when you wipe and there's nothing on the toilet paper. What happened? Did the a-hole finally perfect the ousting of the toilet paper industry, by simply clamping at the perfect moment creating not a smidgen of leftovers? Is the poop in the toilet, the side effects (sweat, feelings of lightness) an illusion? Did the little guys in the toilet lick me clean? What did I eat? Was it a self-cleaning food? What would a self-cleaning food be? Apples. Apple Martin. I bet broccoli and pears are self-cleaning foods too. Mostly fruit, and some veggies, but NOT asparagus. But I bet the best self-cleaning food is water. Well, that’s not really a food, is it? Did you know you could OD on water? You can. You’d have to drink an obscene amount, but still. Water can kill. You should only drink 8-12 oz, unless you are involved in some sort of activity (in which case, you should only add one glass per hour of activity). See, you learn something new everyday. And if you already knew that then I bet you didn’t know I think about poop as a leftover.
