Chuck was at a model train show recently. While he was gone, I realized I had a draft in my queue that I hadn't posted yet. What does that have to do with trains? Read on.
It was the annual gathering of the model train club: a cookout-slash-potluck of the guys. They requested that Chuck bring his famous German potato salad
. He did, but he did even better. Remember, these guys are geeks who identify totally with the main characters on the show Big Bang Theory.
From the left: Fizzbin Fruit Salad, Pickles Set on Stun, Photon Tomatoes, and the aforementioned potato salad.
fresh pineapple, raisins, gooseberries,
spicy deviled egg mix (yolks only) in plum tomatoes: use the yolks of hardboiled eggs for a traditional deviled egg mix, with the addition of smokey red pepper sauce. Scoop the seeds and pulp out of the cherry tomatoes; fill with the egg mixture and top with the tops of the cherry tomatoes.
Pickles set on Stun:
pickles marinaded in brine from Marzetti's hot pickled yellow peppers.
Next year I think he'll bring something that requires a pizza cutter so he can bring his new one.
