    Made some saugies for lunch with weiner sauce and pickled sweet onions, a little brown mustard and celery salt.
    It's a Rhode Island thing. Anyone wants the recipe, I'll post it. It all goes onto a lightly grilled hot dog roll .

    Something Chinese from a takeaway that someone got.
    It's all the same to me. Not a fan.

    Cooked Chicken Rogan Josh, served with rice, stir fried vegetables, papadum & sweet mango chutney. All lovely except for clumsy me spilling some of the oil in the Rogan Josh paste over my shirt - now comes with a spicy smell and a lovely brown stain.

    That's close to what I had tonight. Chicken stir fry with hot curry powder and pineapple tidbits and juice to give it some sweet on top of rice.

    How is your shrimp prepared, danscope? Breaded and fried or sauteed with butter? Or other? I love shrimp.

    Yeah - coconut shrimp! With a tangy sauce to dip. I need to buy some soon. Would right now, but can't (chained to home desk, working).

    I remember one afternoon in Key West, when My friends came back to the house with a refrigerator draw full of shrimp.
    We steamed them up , melted a little butter and produced some cold beer ( I had caught a very large octopus off Duval St)
    and traded it for two six packs of heiniken . Best trade I ever made It took a couple hours to go through that much shrimp------work-work-work ....

    So what happened to the octopus? I didn't know those critters could be gotten off Florida (but then I haven't seen the ocean since too long). I've never peeled and de-veined fresh shrimp; that must be quite a task, yes.

    Last night, boiled lobster (the real thing, with the big claws), and roasted potatoes (corn on the cob is more traditional) on paper plates, eaten outside.

    Tonight, pizza.

    I've never had real lobster. But I did just have tuna salad on whole wheat, with plenty of sweet pickle relish mixed in. Gotta have a tangy crunch with tuna salad.

    I just had a New England childhood flashback. Fresh lobster, with a bib, melted butter, and nutcrackers for the shells.

    I grew up on good seafood, and out here in the Midwest it's a lot harder to come by.

    Long John Silver's (?). Probably cannot compare, though. Being native to Midwest, I'm very picky about seafood; most I don't like. Grew up on red meat and potatoes.

    Probably easier than when I went to school in Chicago. Of course, there's only one way to make sure the lobster is fresh: never buy a dead one.

    I meant, fresh as opposed to frozen.

    Steak. Fassona fillet with a Primitivo di Manduria reduction and chips, to be precise.
    And tiramisù to finish it off

    Spaghetti Puttanesca at Lanza's Ristorante in Port Townsend last night. Lovely! If you're ever in PT and want a romantic option for a meal, do visit Lanza's.

    But there's an entire restaurant chain called Dead Lobster!

    Oh? Never mind!

    Garlic, garlic everywhere and now my breath will stink


    No, really, why did they put garlic in nearly everything ?

    Except for desserts, most food is better with garlic.

    The Wife® and I will celebrate 12 years of marriage later today with a homemade surf & turf dinner: pan roasted filet mignon with Bearnaise sause, sauteed prawns, creamy polenta, and a tomato salad, followed by a dessert of Bananas Foster. I'm still mulling the wine choice.

    Lol!!

    But you wouldn't shoot me while I'm eating Cabrioni Waferini cacao wafers imported from Italy...would you? Coincidentally purchased 3 days ago.

    PetersCreek: Wow. That sounds so delicious.
