7/7/2019 - International Chocolate Day Dinner

I'm not having any chocolate tonight, but I'm sure many others are!

https://www.cnn.com/2019/07/07/us/in...rnd/index.html

Tonight's dinner was flank steak on the grill, roasted smashed red potatoes, house salad.

SO's low carb diet is over as of yesterday's 'Wedding To Remember'. Tonight we had pasta with my homemade sauce along with a salad.

What did they give you for dinner yesterday Andy? Your pasta sounds good today and so does your flank steak TS.
Souschef picked up Gyro's for dinner since he worked on the train engine today.

We went out for supper to celebrate yesterday's wedding anniversary. We went to one of our favourite restos, Bâton Rouge. I noticed from my Facebook memories that we have been there often enough on our anniversary or the day after, that it qualifies as a tradition.

We started with cocktails. I had a dry martini and Stirling had Long Island tea. Stirling had the Chipotle Jack chicken. He said that it was really good with flavours that worked really well together. I had the top sirloin certified Angus beef, which was lovely, as usual. Stirling had a large glass of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and I had a large glass of Folonari Valpolicella. We didn't have room for dessert. That was a lovely evening out. I forgot to take any pix of the food.

Yesterday’s dinner at the wedding was a mixed green salad with toasted pecans and fresh berries, grilled salmon filets, roasted Yukon gold potato wedges, asparagus and a selection of cream puffs and cheesecake bon bons.

Considering the difficulties I describe elsewhere, the dinner turned out pretty good.

Kgirl, look at that bottle of special Hawaiian liquid smoke as being less than a good bottle of wine, and it lasts longer too.

We finally had our Fourth of July cookout food: hot dog, potato salad, baked beans, homemade dill pickle, cheddar cheese and sour cream potato chips.
