GBC = Green Bean Casserole, I believe.

Am I the only person who made GBC for Thanksgiving?


Not at all!  I had to make it or risk being put out of the family.  And I like it once or twice a year.

You've finally stumped me. Usually I know what you're talking about, but I can't figure this one to save my life. Great British Cookoff? Gizzard Blizzard Crunch? Gallons of Bourbon Chilled? Gargantuan Broccoli Crown? 

As improviser said, Green Bean Casserole.  I don't know if the original recipe specified a brand but I used Del Monte Blue Lake canned beans because that's what I grew up with, and because I could I added a lot more crispy fried onions.
 
I'm on board with guesses 3 and 4, but not necessarily at the same time.

I had two most amazing tacos at Salsas in Cathedral City.  These areTacos Guanatos (Guadalajara style) which Michael Stern had at Salas when he visited.  The two I had looked nothing like those in Michael's review.
These two were open face.
 
My first bite totally choked me.  I was unprepared for the heat intensity.  I like heat so I was prepared with the second bite and I was fine.
 
First I carefully removed the green stuff, of course.
 
I believe the meat was pork marinated in a salsa de arbol, white beans, fresh diced onions and wonderful grilled onion petals atop lightly grilled corn tortillas.  OUTSTANDING in appearance and taste!

Too many onions, Mar!!
 
Last night was casserole: a bed of leftover stuffing topped with leftover turkey, leftover gravy, and leftover mashed potatoes.  Baked covered until it bubbled and then a little longer uncovered to brown the potatoes.
 
I think it weighed more than the turkey originally did.

I stopped off at a tamale place near me.  Don't know how long it's been there but I just stumbled across it.  They were all out of tamales.  They got slammed the day before Thanksgiving and hadn't had time to make more.  It's tamale season around here.
 
I stuck around for a couple of tacos.
 
 
 
Pastor and Desebrada on the far end, topped with onions and cilantro and a great home-made salsa.  The desebrada was good; pastor is not Don Pepe's forte, though.  Served on flour tortillas.  I wasn't asked and didn't see anything on the menu about a choice.  One customer who looked Hispanic complained and they took his back and brought them out on corn.  
 
I'll be back for tamales soon and the breakfast offerings look good - churros, champurrado, atole del dia, and cafe de olla.

That salsa appears to be toward the smooth end of the spectrum, which is how I like it.  How was the heat level?
 
No turkey tonight.  A rack of spares will be coming out of the smoker in about 30 minutes.

Brad, the smooth salsas are usually just chili based without any tomatoes.  My favorite.  I bought a squeeze bottle of chile de arbol sauce the other night to take home with me.  It's so hot it lasts me about 2 years!

Forgot.  I had more Mexican food at a different place that was maybe in La Quinta.  Hwy 111 seems the same to me wherever I am.  Had 2 tacos de carne asada.  I might add a photo later.

Yes, smooth but not watery.  I've been experiencing a lot of watery, bland salsas lately, it seems like.  This was a pleasant change.  Medium heat, I'd say.  Not near my limit, which isn't very much anymore.  I saved the lid to the little container, brought the leftovers home in my coat pocket and dressed up my eggs the next morning.

God that makes me miss Texas, little casual Mexican places that you can have a nice meal in for five bucks. The Mexican food in New Orleans is horrendous.

Then you should come to California.  I can't stand the Mexican food in Texas.  They ruin tortillas!

Oh geez... that never occurred to me! Probably because I make green bean casserole fairly regularly because it's a quick and easy side dish.
 
I had cream biscuits and a quart of whole milk left from Thanksgiving. I had a half pound of sausage in the freezer from the breakfast pizza. It seemed like a requirement that I do biscuits and gravy, right? So then I decided to go overboard and added eggs and potatoes (both fried in bacon grease, naturally) and some toast. I am stuffed, fat, and happy!

Sounds good, Lee!
 
I made country style ribs in BBQ sauce (in the Instant Pot), scalloped potatoes and sauteed spinach. That Instant Pot does a great job on those ribs in only 35 minutes! They've become a family fave!

I just bought an Instapot.  Do you just put the ribs in with bottled sauce?  Brown them first?  I need help because I'm a bit afraid of it.
 
Thanks!

Do not fear the Instant Pot! It is about as foolproof as a kitchen gadget can get. When I make mine I just pop the country style ribs in with sauce and, sometimes a splash of water. I don't brown them, at all. Takes about 35 minutes (after sealing it and pressing the Meat button). They make quite a bit of liquid in the process. I sometimes slice up an onion and put it on the bottom for a bit of added taste. If you're doing a nice chuck roast you can brown that up before adding everything else and starting it up. I've done that a few times. Man, it makes supper a breeze! If you want recipes there are scads of sites, including the Instant Pot site, to walk you through it! The pot is a lot easier than a traditional pressure cooker. I would suggest (with the ribs and other fatty meats) that you keep a plastic jug around to poor the leftover liquids in for disposal. You definitely don't want that grease going down the pipes!
 
If you want to make chicken stock it doesn't get easier. Toss a whole chicken in (I cut mine up) add the carrots, celery and whatever herb you might like, with the appropriate amount of water, and hit the Meat button. 35 minutes later you'll have a really nice gelatinous stock and some chicken that's suitable for whatever you want.
