Antipasti Wednesday, 9-23-15

We had gougeres filled with mascarpone, roasted garlic, crispy pancetta, with a drizzle of reduced balsamic, plus grilled asparagus with parm shavings (Craig likes his parm) and a tossed caprese salad, both dressed with a light lemon juice, garlic, olive oil, S and P dressing.

Looks and sounds really good, medtran.

I had a taco salad late this afternoon with all the trimmin's, including diced avocado. Very filling. I might have a bowl of watermelon a little later on.


{today is the 23rd, maybe a mod will come along and change the date. :-)}

We went to a fine dining restaurant here in Pittsburgh. It was magnificent! Multiple courses, each better than the last. I had a pork chop with the entire rib bone still attached, a beautiful peach sauce with a bit of grainy mustard and roasted pistachios. That was served with purple garlic mashed potato and broccolini tossed in brown butter. The breads were all amazing. We shared a cartoucherie plate with wonderful cured meats and local cheeses. An amuse bouche was brought, but it had shrimp, so I gave it to Rob, Rob and friends loved it. My dessert was a thin layer of rich chocolate cake topped with a peanut butter mousse and garnished with bacon peanut brittle. We were sent home with a cute little bag containing a macadamia bar.

This restaurant was hanging off the edge of Mount Washington overlooking downtown Pittsburgh. What a great experience.

This was the view from our table.

Lobstah! Tourists have mostly left, and they can't ship soft shells, so the price has dropped. Steamed lobster with a side of black bean and corn salad (Cheryl J recipe).

Not for long. The leaf peepers are on the way. Brace yourself!

Got a good deal on chicken breasts, so fried up some nuggets and made some country gravy. It was so good that I forgot a vegetable.

Been cooking quick meals when we ran out of leftovers, although we did a pizza run last night. Today, I cooked. Used up the last of a package of bacon, sauteing it, taking the crisp bacon out, and following with onions and then mushrooms. Let that cool while I chopped the last of the ham, added in scrambled eggs and defrosted hash browns, and mixed everything together. Baked it in an 8" square Corningware until set, then topped with cheddar cheese and baked about 5 minutes more. Slabs of that were accompanied by a fruit salad that cleaned up the last bits of cantaloupe, strawberries, and kiwi. Tomorrow, take-out again. I'm getting too old for garage sales...
