Marinated pork and chicken kabobs, with green/red/yellow peppers and sweet white onion.
I get to try something new this weekend. I'll be camping all weekend, and am doing a spit roasted leg of lamb. And as always some venison chili on friday night.
+1 on the frog legs. Definitely a common app for my redneck side of the family.
You have a favorite marinade for lamb?
Typically I use lots of fresh rosemary, sage and thyme, with olive oil and a small amount of sherry. Of course black pepper, sea salt and smoked garlic I make every week. I am open to any suggestions. This will be the first time I have done one on the campfire.

Probably Cincinnati style chili. If it rains as much as they think it will, it will be a good day to stay inside and not grill.
Caveat: A good friend is having his 50th birthday party Saturday night. Likely just to have snacks and not have the game on tv. His wife planned the surprise party for him, so I can't blame Bob. Plus they live overseas, so we rarely get to see them. Husband wants to use the hurricane as an excuse to cancel, otherwise, he wants to get there early and leave early. We don't know a lot of the other people in any event.

You sound like there is a frog in your throat, you may be coming down with something. It would be a shame if you were sick and couldnt attend the party.
Annual Fish fry game. Lake Erie perch battered in Drake's with a pinch of Cajun seasoning. Homemade french fries (still need to find some large potatoes) . 2 Turkey fryers and a good supply of beer and here we go.
18 Saturdays till kickoff
Had frog legs once, it was a bit odd - not horrible but not great.
But they "taste like chicken" well hell just give me the chicken then.
I think the are a cross between shrimp and chicken. Definitely more flavor than chicken imho, of course I'd rather have squirrel.
If made correctly, they are delicious. I am sure my wife will want wings too, so I imagine those will also be on the menu.
How Firm Thy Friendship...Oh-Hi-Oh
Saturday will be pizza and wings at the house, just not sure yet from where. The whole family will be there so it is going to be a good time. Go Bucks!
Urban Meyer left an incredible legacy. 12/4/18 Ryan Day begins his.
Homemade wings this week, washed down with some Sam Adams Oktoberfest
No such thing as a bad win
When I was young and didn't know better (Scioto County Hillbilly) we'd gig frogs from creeks and ponds, some being golf course ponds. I'm lucky I don't have three eyes from all of the chemicals in those golf course frogs...........tasty though!

frogs legs are quite tasty but oil temp and cooking time are super critical.
those babies will float once their cooked......I would keep that oil at 350 .....maybe a little higher.
Breading and method sounds legit and delicious,.
I Hate Michigan.
Friday Im kicking off the weekend with grilled pork and apples with a orange balsamic glaze. I love the combo of grilled pork and apples something about those two flavors blend so well together. Serve with a side of grilled veggies marinated in a simple olive oil lemon garlic sauce.
Saturday I will slow cook a 4lb whole chicken in a wine infuser tray with 1/4 cup chardonnay to keep that bird moist. Surrounding the chicken I cut up yellow potatoes, carrots, and 1 lemon. On the chicken I use a dry rub of salt, pepper, fresh rosemary, and fresh thyme. Cook the bird for about 90 minutes with indirect heat over a drip pan to catch any overflowing juices. At each 30 minute interval I go out and rub on some melted butter, rosemary, lemon juice, and thyme which adds some flavor and keeps the skin from drying out but giving it a nice crispy texture as well. The veggies and potatoes cook in the juices that come off the bird and are very delicious. Can serve as is.
Ill also be making a potato salad for sunday on Saturday as I find its best to let all the flavors sit and mix overnight. Between that and the wine infused whole chicken, ill be able to keep myself occupied for most of the day till kickoff.
So what time are we supposed to come over? :-)
I'm doing lemon panko pan fried rabbit, basalmic roasted brussel sprouts and caramel moouse. Its rabbit season and I got a few beauties last weekend.
Vegetable fried rice for me and my vegetarian (but still egg-loving) girlfriend:
1 cup jasmine rice
1 bag steamed broccoli
1 sweet potato, chopped into small chunks
2 carrots, cut into narrow sticks
4 green onions, finely minced
3 cloves garlic, finely minced
1 tablespoon chopped ginger
1 bell pepper, chopped
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 tablespoon mustard (dijon is best)
1 tablespoon of citrus juice (optional)
1 tablespoon chili-garlic sauce
1 dash turmeric
1 packet fried rice seasoning
vegetable oil to coat pan or wok
Cook the rice in a rice cooker, steam the broccoli, stir fry the veggies (but reserve half the garlic, onions, and ginger for the sauce) in oil until tender, then add chopped broccoli florets. Mix the soy sauce, reserved garlic, ginger, and onions, chili-garlic paste, mustard, sesame oil, and (optional) citrus juice in a small bowl. Add the cooked rice to the veggies, stir vigorously, then add the sauce and seasoning packet, as well as the dash of turmeric. Once you're finished mixing, turn off the heat, add the eggs (pre-scrambled is better) and stir vigorously again.
Serve in a bowl, preferably porcelain.
