If you live in the Knoxville, Tennessee area, you need to check out the newest Indian restaurant on the west side of town, Taj. Had dinner there last night with family, and I can’t wait to have my leftover Chicken Makhani for lunch today! The makhani isn’t even on the menu, but the chef at Taj was happy to cook up the three dishes we wanted that weren’t listed. The naan bread was hot and buttery and light and delicious. The samosas, both veggie and meat (lamb) were terrific. I could go on…..
I haven’t found an Indian cookbook in Christmas Place yet, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed! Until then, how about a recipe from Ruby Ann’s Down Home Trailer Park Cookbook, by Ruby Ann Boxcar. Ruby Ann’s smokin’ hot on the cover here!
Cooking’ so good, folks will be turnin’ off the wrestlin’ channel just to come ‘n’ get it!
Beautician, international entertainer and singer, and syndicated columnist Ruby Ann Boxcar lives with her husband Dew and their three dogs in a two-story double-wide pink trailer home at the High Chaparral Trailer Park in Pangburn, Arkansas.
Let me just say, these trailer park folk don’t know from low cal – you have to get to Chapter 12 on page 171 to find a main dish (past appetizers, drinks (featuring gallons of grape soda), bread, cookies, candy, desserts, and helpful hints – it’s all about priorities!). Here’s one to entertain the kids.
10 hot dog buns, toasted
6 oz corn chips
10 hot dogs, grilled
1 lb chili
1/2 head iceberg lettuce, shredded
1/4 lb Government cheese, melted
Line the buns with the chips, add the hot dogs, and top with a large spoonful of chili, lettuce, and cheese.
Look, this one included lettuce – what can I say, I tried! This book is quite a hoot – it includes a map of the trailer park and a history of each of its residents. Call and ask for item 285076 (couldn’t find it on the site). A great gag gift or stocking stuffer for the right person!
We’re planning on a warm and sunny early spring weekend to welcome Daylight Savings Time here in East Tennessee – hope it’s fantastic for you, wherever you are!
