Costco Polish Dog to BBQ from Ray's Bitchen Kitchen

We made a Costco run this morning. Undecided as to what to do for lunch, we just grabbed a quick Polish dog at Costco. Dang those things are good. I haven't had one in such a long time I forgot how good they can be. Some deli mustard and onion for me thanks. It was nice and juicy and the skin "popped" when you bit into it, just perfect.


On our way home we saw Ray's Bitchen Kitchen along side the road. Screech!!! turned the car around to pick up something for dinner. Ray really hooked us up. We got one plate of smoked chicken and one of smoked pork. Ray made some real mashed potatoes that he spiced with the perfect amount of garlic. This was topped off with his homemade giblet gravy. He cooks the giblets for the flavor but does not chop them into the gravy (thank you Ray for that.) The gravy is nice and smooth with just the right amount of body, not too thick, not too thin. This was served up with some delicious carrots that were cooked up with some pineapple. We also got a nice salad of romaine lettuce that was mixed with carrots, broccoli, red cabbage and dried cranberries. I am stuffed.

I'm surprised Ray was out today because last night he catered a meal for 300 people. It was a Dinner Theater train ride that was put on by the Pacific Southwest Railway Museum

I'm sure everyone's meal was as good as mine was today.
