The Diner

The Diner

The Diner at 213 E. Main Street is a Norman fixture. Mark Amspacher started it in 1996 and ran it until his death in 2010. He operated the famous Amspacher’s Grocery & Deli on Lindsay Street across from the OU campus prior to founding The Diner. Mark was known as a champion chili cook and chili was a staple in The Diner’s fare. My favorite breakfast was the ‘Tamale Breakfast’. It wasn’t on the menu, but was a couple of tamales with fried eggs, chili, cheese and a few green onions on top and served with hashbrowns. Guy Fierie’s "Diners, Drive ins and Dives" featured Mark in 2009. The Diner is still open and run by Mark’s daughter, but the place is just not the same without Mark’s huge hulking body wrapped in a tie-dyed T-shirt and a big infectious smile on his face.

If you want Mark’s famous Southside Chii recipe it’s on the Food Network visit www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/southside-chili-recipe/index….

I often ate there and turkey hunted a few times with Mark, he was a fun guy who really enjoyed life and loved people.

RAW, PS Elements.

Homemade Pretzels

Homemade Pretzels

Still have to refine this one; too dense and the pretzels really didn’t have a shape of pretzel.

orecchiette with turkey sausage, broccoli rabe, and clams

the clams were an addition after i saw a similar dish being made on the food network. all i had was the canned stuff but it still turned out quite good. the clams kinda dissolved in with everything else and added a nice saltiness to the dish.
