What's for dinner
 
Tonight, it is Horseshoe's. What is a horseshoe you say?
A horseshoe sandwich (or simply a horseshoe) is a regional food created in the late 1920’s in Springfield, Illinois. The horseshoe is an open-faced “sandwich” served with meat, cheese sauce, fries, and toast. All horseshoes begin with the toast on the bottom. The bread is then topped with a meat of choice, commonly, two hamburger patties or deep-fried chicken breast. Other meats often used are sliced turkey or ham, pork tenderloin, or fried fish filets. The meat is then covered by french fries and finally smothered in cheese sauce. The price for a horseshoe ranges from $6-$10 and they can be found in most restaurants in the central Illinois area.

Hmmm. That's a new one for me.

Tonight it's Tacos at my house. I'm up to my eyeballs in tomatoes and not ready to start freezing them, so every night must be something we can eat fresh tomatoes with....

Horseshoes are a Springfield, IL fav. Everyone has their favorite restaurant that serves them, and of course that restaurant has better horseshoes than the next one. I am sure that you will be able to figure something out with all of those tomatoes. Remember, football is right around the corner. There is always the Ronald McDonald house, and the food bank.

I've got a cross country drive ahead of me in the next few weeks - I'm guessing a stop in SPringfield is in my future.....

:yes::yes::yes: Excess produce from my yard (like excess eggs) goes to the staff at the Hospital where my Husband works.

I have also given excess herbs to a local restaurant.

Is there perhaps another name for that sandwich, such as "heart attack?" :)

I had a McDonalds fish filet sandwich and a Frappe Mocha for dinner. Lunch on the go today was two crispy ground beef tacos from Taco Cabana. I love those things but I really need to eat much healthier.

Order your next horseshoe with a Diet Coke you'll be fine.:)

Cha. :laughing:

Just reading about it makes me want a Ceasar Salad to combat it's effects.

gregzoll 08-03-2011 09:54 PM

Actually Doc, it is a foodies dream. Pizza and Horseshoes are the two biggest arguable foods here as to who has the best in town.

Doc Holliday 08-03-2011 09:56 PM

This is from a Vietnamese restaurant from a few weeks back at lunch. Char grilled sliced beef cooked in lemon grass. I can't wait to get back over there for another plate, just awesome.

I would say at least 30% of the pics on my phone right now are of food. And it does look yummy.

gregzoll 08-03-2011 10:18 PM

There is actually a app for that. I had it on my iPhone for a day, then deleted it.

I had just gotten my new Android phone with a digital camera and achin' to use it. I think I took a picture every five minutes the first few days with the thing, of whatever was in my line of sight.

Food pics are good, we should probably have a thread just on pics of the food we all eat. I'm sure Leah's would be good.

Post 'em!!
