This week, my dears, I (so, so proudly) announce that I am working the chipwagon for the Mopar Internationals (INRA) at Grand Bend Ontario. Let me first describe my facility (chipper) to you. I have a large charbroiler (bbq). I have a flat top (like a cast iron frying pan but huge) and I have deep fryers. At this event, I am working mostly "the pits" where guys service their cars that are in the competition. But I will attempt to serve about 1000 people a day (mostly guys, mostly single, YES my wardrobe is ready!).

I was hoping to vary my menu a bit, not just burgers,hot dogs, footlongs, chicken & fishburgers. So I am looking for variations on a)my existing stuff, for eg. cheesy chili fries and b)new stuff you folks have had in fast food/carnival food that impressed you. I only have three days to plan. And then I am into the thick of things, and wondering which room I can use to store all my money.

The "joint" (carny-talk for game/food concession) next to me sells fajitas and Philly steaks so despite all the recipes and encouragement from dear Denny, Philly steak expert extraordinaire, I shan't be stepping on her toes THIS year.

I am the only joint with REAL fries - everyone else is frozen. Yeah!! and thanx ahead of time all contributors. There's a burger in it for ya!

So, toppings for fries, unusual burgers etc. is what I am looking/dying for. Oooh my nerves are fried, my to-do lists are long! Love y'all!

Tuna melts okay, Papa? Oh and NO green bean salad, in case anyone was going to suggest....

It is going to be HOT, maybe record HOT here this week, so I thought soup would be out. But can do some interesting salads like my (famous/infamous) creamy chicken caesar pasta salad. Or greek salad, with a grilled chicken breast added.

Have you tried french fried sweet potatoes?

Or lamb burgers. Ground lamb mixed with feta cheese and the usual seasonings.

Warren dahling, YES!!! My sweet potato fries are a huge hit, and you know what? I also do turnip (rutabaga) fries. MMMmmmm, with gravy, you think you just had Christmas dinner! Lamb burgers don't go over well but I (am ashamed to say) adore cooking and eating lamb (sorry folks).

How about pita bread? Have a bunch of filling recipes. My favorite, and anyone from Iowa will know this one: It is called Maid rites or a loose meat sandwich. Can be made up in a big batch in a crockpot. Really easy, and one guys love.

Huge turkey legs are always a hit (can be found at every fair and even Disney World here in Florida). If doing drinks(non-alcoholic of course) frozen lemonaid is great! i guess if you wanted to try it alcoholic way,could try using Mike's hard lemnonaide.
