I have an oven. I just don't like the way it works.

So, my Lake Erie Perch and macaroni and cheese dinner.
Still working on the whites with the camera...

Ah! Conchiglie I think? Looks delicious Pac.

(My camera is also doing the "white" thing! Very annoying!)

Yeah, I don't get it. My old camera didn't blast the whites out of focus, but my new one does... but the rest of the colors come out better.

Yes, shells. All held together with shallots sweated in butter, milk, gruyere and cream cheese. And thanks!

Leftover chicken divan, raw cauliflower and grape tomatoes with ranch dressing. (Grape toms from the garden, no frost here yet, so a few tomatoes still ripening. :)

Omg, we went to the hippest Mexican restaurant I've ever been to! The decor was modern bohemian, that's the best that I could describe it, whoever was in charge of this place's decor has an amazing imagination.

The food was equally amazing. The staff was really friendly. You were given a bobble head figure as your wait marker, so instead of a buzzer your character was called out, ours was bobble head Darth Vader. As we were leaving, sitting on top of a wall was what looked like a mannequin, if you didn't know any better you would think that she was. Put a tip in her jar and she shook her tambourine and sang to you. It all combined to create an amazingly cool and energetic atmosphere. We'll definitely go back!

We walked across the parking lot and enjoyed an amazing coffee shop, everything scratch made and local roasted coffee and local dairy products.

I couldn't decide and I couldn't decide and I couldn't decide on dinner tonight. Well, you know how it goes sometimes. Finally I made scramble eggs, sausage patties, hash browns, one sliced tomato and toast. Bonus. A time savings and a head start on tomorrow.

Tomorrow morning is a trip to the farmer's market for another arm-load of tomatoes, no frost here yet, and they still have plenty. The squirrels pretty much took care of any tomatoes that grew in my garden. Also, I forgot to buy Potatoes at the regular store today, so will pick up some of thosse, and will see what kind of fall veggies are available.

We had chicken fried steak, home fries, and mixed vegis with garlic butter. I used forty_caliber's recipe: Chicken Fried Steak

That was very tasty, it's a keeper.

Tonight was a mega salad with tuna, navy beans, tomatoes, black olives, peas, green beans, sweet onion, red bell pepper, and extra sharp cheddar, tossed with a Dijon vinaigrette.

Yummy sounding (and looking) meals. Pacanis, your perch and mac n' cheese looks fantastic...especially with gruyere....yum. Bakechef, what a fun restaurant! Taxlady, oh how I love chicken fried steak, yours looks so good with those veggies and the gravy.

I had Chinese take out tonight. Been a long week.
