Bootleggers Day Dinner - 1/17/2019

"On January 17, 1920, the 18th Amendment officially took effect nationwide. If you're not up to snuff on your American history, the 18th Amendment was known as national Prohibition. It called for the banning of the manufacture, sale, or transportation of alcoholic beverage. It even banned "intoxicating liquors", except for those used in religious services, of course. Led by the Temperance Movement, Prohibition was officially ratified on January 16, 1920 and fell into place the next day. Today, January 17 is known as National Bootlegger's Day. Interestingly enough, January 17, 1899 was Al Capone's birthday."

Tonight's dinner will be turkey meatloaf, garlicky mashed red potatoes, and broc. I'll be using the ATK recipe. The now legal alcohol will be wine.

I guess I'll wait until we celebrate the 21st Amendment to make something special.

Leftover spaghetti, and a small tossed salad with Italian dressing.

I'm doing Asian tonight too Ross.


I've been thinking about the Shanghai Lion's Head Meatball soup that Med posted a few days ago and I went on a recipe hunt for them. The Serious Eats recipe called for some tofu, and I don't do that stuff. So....as usual it will be a combo of several interesting recipes I found for the special meatballs. The soup will have fresh shiitake mushrooms along with napa/bok choy/scallions/noodles.

I'm SO sick of all the gloomy days of rain, this will be fun in the kitchen with benefits.

I followed the recipe, and the ATK turkey meatloaf is really good. Definitely on the do again list.

Our first night of takeout tonight. I picked up from a little Italian joint that's only open from 4 to10, 4 nights a week. Fantastic Italian American food (read: enough garlic to kill everyone in Transylvania)

We started with salads, then my wife had Passera Ripiena (crab stuffed flounder) in a scampi sauce, side of penne.

My boy had Scampi (shrimp) over linguini.

I had Pollo Arrabiata, side of spaghetti.

Curried mince in jaffles / toasties/ toasted sammiches. I don't know what you guys call them, 2 piece bread with filling then toasted under pressure, like a foreman grill.

Those are often called panini here, rascal.

A sandwich, usually made on Italian bread, that is then pressed down and toasted in a Foreman like grill.

Curried mince? Minced what? Kniwing you, I'd guess lamb.

Anything else in there?
