26 August Saturday

It's after 5pm already and no one has started dinner yet?????

I'm making a mango soup for first course.

Then, courtesy of Emeril's NOLA restaurant (It was the first restaurant Lou and I went to the first time we went to New Orleans) I'm making roated garlic mashed potatoes, with a saga bleu stuffed portebello set atop, and then that will be topped with filet mignon, rare, of course.

I made two huge pans of baklava, so we'll be having that for dessert.

We ended up having bourbon sidecars last night, so I'm sure we'll be doing the sazeracs tonight.

It's cool and breezy here tonight, so we'll be headed out to the hot tub by midnight, for sure.


How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

I baked zucchini bread all day so dinner will probably be something from the freezer later on ...

Since I'm the only one here [besides 4 dogs] I think it'll be a ham sandwich and pretzels.

Probably just some leftovers, or pull something from the freezer since I dont feel like cooking a huge meal tonight.

We went to a barbecue place and had ribs - no dessert.

have ben getting things ready for tomorrow's sunday dinner, so tonight since we irrigate, it will be an easy night I picked up several lbs. of shrimp which I've cooked and peeled and made some lime mayo to dunk them in, sliced up some cantaloupe, fixed some parmesan garlic bread, made mango ice tea, I just cooked some angel hair pasta and and going to toss it with brown butter and mizithra cheese. Since I made two strudels for tomorrow, if anyone wants dessert, it's popcicles or vanilla ice cream...

We ordered pizza in and had watermelon for dessert.

BJ, a ham sandwich sounds really good...with mayo and crispy lettuce.

vb, you might want to set one of those pans of baklava out on the window sill to cool.

yoink!, he he he.

btw, if you wanna try an amazing midlle eastern/greek-ish dessert, go to the parkway diner in elmwood park on 46 east. order a piece of something caled kataifa ekmek. you'll thank me (hopefully with some baklava).

for dinner tonight: since i had to work 8p last night until noon today, then i'm back in at 8pm tonight, i didn't get a chance to make anything. i inhaled some leftover arroz con pollo for lunch, and now i'm back at work. probably gonna run and get some cheap thai food, or maybe french. haven't decided yet.
