Thanks, Alix

Whiska, I think the difference between breaded pork chops and schnitzel is; schnitzel never has a bone, is pounded/tenderized, and most importantly you need oom pah pah music playing in the background.

Mini pizzas made with Greek style pita bread (not that dry stuff often sold as pita bread). Olive oil, a bit of tomato paste (not sauce) crumbled blue cheese, garlic, sauteed red onion slices.

It just takes a few minutes to assemble and to bake.

I virtually never cook on a Friday - so it was Chicken Chow Mein for me.

Pac, that Cornish Hen with the mushrooms sounds fab! (But pizza works too!)

It'll be the hen. I'm too lazy to go out and pick up a pizza. I'm whooped.

Well then I think a pic will be required!

I'm whooped too. I did an enormous grocery shop, unloaded, did some laundry, realized I'd forgotten some important stuff and went back out to do more grocery shopping. *sigh*

So...made a giant pot of clam chowder to have with a loaf of crusty french bread. I have a butter lettuce that might end up being mimosa salad to go with.

Sorry pac, I don't think I'm up to travelling tonight. I'll enjoy the hen vicariously.

Change of plans. We'll have the schnitzel Sunday. We were going to grill some brats and knackwurst earlier in the week, but it rained and then we didn't have the energy. So, Stirling will do that tonight as well as the organic chicken sausage I bought today. I'll make some cole slaw and do something with some 'taters and/or some wholewheat baguettines (small baguettes) I picked up today. Stirling forgot that he was going to go out to eat with a friend, so the friend is joining us.

Alright! Fire up that grill, Taxy

NE or Manhattan, Alix? If it's NE save me a quart... or a liter is close enough

If it comes out I might snap a pic or two, Katy.
I just finished cutting up the little hen. I must say, it came frozen and was thawed (in the fridge) with a little ice still and it still smelled a little off... I hope it didn't come from that place in California with the salmonella thing going on

Manhattan this time. I'm missing my Dad and this was his specialty.

For years I have been pondering Clam Chowder. My problem is, I have never eaten a clam! I have this worry that I wouldn't like the texture and that would defeat the purpose of making a Clam Chowder!

Can you make a reasonably authentic Chowder without using clams? Say, with prawns? (Not lobster though - far too expensive here!)
