Since I'm a big fan of lamb, some gyros or kefta would be amazing.
BEANS and CORNBREAD...Food for a king..
From scratch kinda sorta - started it yesterday.
1 BBQ Chicken broken up
2 lbs frozen vegetables
1 lb of frozen Italian vegetables
1/2 bag Pennsylvania Dutch Noodles
1 Bay Leaf
1/2 gallon cold water
Kosher Salt & Pepper to taste
All in my counterfeit le Creuset.
I don't know, don't care much, but I wish I could have dinner with my mom and dad, together or separately, their choice of place and menu, my treat.
But, I am going to have beans tonight...
I wish I could dine at l'Absinthe on the upper east side, NYC. Sadly, they closed in 2014.
Or, I wish I could dine at Ondine, a French restaurant closer to home, in New Fairfield, CT. Sadly, they too have closed.
L'Absinthe was a regular haunt when I was working in the city for a few years. I'd stay over a couple nights a week, to ease the 6 hour commute, and have dinner there, about 1/3 of the time.
My wife and I found Ondine shortly after we were married, and we went there several times a year, including our anniversary, for 25 years.
Since I can't get any of that, how about:
Pan-seared foie gras, with berry reduction
Chilled whole lobster salad with watercress (ala l'Absinthe)
Steak Diane, medium rare, with Pommes Anna, and asparagus
Topped off with a Grand Marnier souffle
I get to have anything I want today - doing the intermittent fasting thing with my wife, its an awesome diet. I've shed nearly 13% of my body weight, more than a lb a week, and haven't hit a plateau yet. I'm hitting the gym almost daily too, so its not muscle loss. I'm never hungry, and eating my fav stuff, just lower portions of tortillas, biscuits and French fries, offset with the typical low carb stuff. I highly recommend it.
Back to the thread, I had two hotdogs for lunch, planning to have an awesome local pizza tonite.
The grilled lamb chops are back on the menu at Longhorn Steakhouse. I rarely eat there, but the lamb chop plate is a good deal.
Once in a while our family would go out to the fancy restaurant and we would get shrimp cocktail and filet mignon with bearnaise sauce. The shrimp were so fresh and the cocktail sauce so good that later in life I would be so continually disappointed with others, I just gave up. The filet was tender, slightly smoky and flavorful and that little smudge of the bearnaise added that buttery flavor. We'd also get a baked potato wrapped in foil that was so hot you had wait to start slathering butter all over it. Everyone slathered butter back then. Dessert was high grade vanilla ice cream.
So that is my wish for dinner tonight even if I have to wear a coat and tie again.
(The restaurant was the Blue Bell Inn, Montgomery County, PA circa late 196O's)
Yes, you can have anything you want, just watch the calories....
French Onion Soup would be nice.
Did the spaghetti and salad enjoy it?
I never want for good
My ex made me a killer dinner tonight...Panko breaded chicken cutlets in extra virgin Olive oil, stuffing, gravy & broccoli in olive oil with garlic & parmesan. OMG!!
Tonight it's pot roast. I just seared most of the ass end of a cow over mesquite. It's floating in wine in a bunch of garlic, onions, "rainbow" carrots and tiny potatoes in the crock pot.
I haven't had breakfast yet.
we took my sister out to dinner last night.... it was really good.
