Just had scallop potatoes, spiral glazed ham (just out of the oven), whiskey, Stellas, and now going shopping, most likely to hear, "hold my purse", and "watch the cart".

Hope there is more whiskey later. Coloring Easter Eggs tonight, sure needing another shot.

Looks like a good recipe (below). The more oil the better (six cups) so you don't cool the oil when frying. Do it in small batches, keep the fries warm in the oven. Make sure you have a good frying thermometer.

I was liking TS's chili idea this morning and was going to do the same but the sun broke through and the temp went up so I sauteed mushrooms with basalmic vinagar, olive oil and garlic and slow BBQ'd a 1 pound porterhouse with Montreal seasoning.

Cooked the garlic slow to carmelize without burning them in the olive oil on the BBQ side burner.

Dinner was not just a meal tonight, it was an amazing experience where I couldn't decide whether I wanted the last bite to be the steak or the mushrooms. It was like getting a massage and wondering where the time went.

It helped I was watching the Stanley Cup Playoffs at the time....

Ive replaced the "have gun will travel" to "have culinary tools will travel..."

We can make the banana peanut butter thing into a cool "amuse bouche".

Grazie. I love chicken noodle soup almost any time. I've been adding freshly sqeezed lemon juice at the end to brighten it a bit. Mmmmmmmm!


Tonight it's shrimp scampi over linquine and a salad with kalamata olives, cucumbers, tomatoes, cannelini beans, cracked pepper, ground sea salt, oregano, a drizzle of good EVOO and freshly squeezed lemon juice.

I don't know what to do tonight.... the grill is definitely the preferred method of cooking.... (there is this odd color to the sky and this big yellow thing hanging up there - I believe it might be an alien spaceship or something... there are no wet things dropping from the heavens either...

Chicken or buffalo?
Asparagus or Broccoli?
Definitely Yukon Gold potatoes and onions (in foil over the coals)
Salad or no Salad?

Decisions, Decisions.... Luckily,I have a long day to think about it and figure out what to prepare...

Tonight I'm thinking Roasted Rib Steak, with Golden Chanterelles, Pommes Anna, Bordelaise sauce and broccoli parmesan. Recipe is from "The French Laundry Cookbook" by (Chef) Thomas Keller

The broccoli parmesan is my idea, everything else comes from the cookbook. I've made everything except the "Roasted Rib Steak" it looks like a cross between prime rib and a steak.



http://www.amazon.com/French-Laundry.../dp/1579651267

Another good cook book is Ad Hoc at Home

Grilled

Grilled steaks I marinated this morning and seasoned with a local combination of spices called "Honey Buzz." Combined with potatoes baked in coals on the grill and served with some fresh asparagus from the garden.

Of course, after that lunch, hard to get motivated to get moving!
