    Since I'm a big fan of lamb, some gyros or kefta would be amazing.

    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.

    :lol: Sounds good!


    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
    BURP! :)

    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)

    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.
