So colorful, Cheryl!

tenspeed, that sure sounds like a special occasion dinner to me.


After exploring NW Massachusetts and SW Vermont, the four of us ate at a cute diner in Pittsfield. Everyone had sandwich plates. I had the "Chubby Checker", a (real!) turkey, bacon, Cheddar, and tomato grilled sandwich, along with a small tossed salad.

The Blue Plate Special at Caseydog's Diner tonight was fried pork chops, mashed potatoes, and mushroom gravy.

I used thin cut chops, so I brined them for a few hours before sesoning with S&P, dredging in flour and frying. They were very tender, and moist. They didn't brown much, but there was a crispy crust.

Tiger sauce is a sweet (- kinda medium) hot sauce. in my grocers it's usually located near the Worcestershire sauce or in the Asian section. A teaspoon is usually about right in smaller recipes. I used a few good shakes in 2 spoons of jam.

That's my kind of sandwich, CG. Looks wonderful. Sounds like a fun road trip!

It was yummy, Cheryl. What was even better, though, was being able to visit with dear friends from back home.

Thanks, Whiska. I've never seen it, but will look for it and give it a try, based on your sandwich description above. It sounds like something that would last a while in the fridge.

I marinated chicken breasts in harissa and made a Moroccan inspired chickpea salad. Yes, Dad is out of town, Mom and I are enjoying food outside of his comfort zone.

I tried a new dish last night - Caprese Fish, from a German cookbook given to me by one of our former exchange students. It calls for layering zucchini and tomatoes with fish and mozzarella cheese, seasoned with Italian herbs, salt and pepper; I used Havarti instead and I drizzled the pan and the fish with Tuscan-herb-infused evoo, then finished it with basil after baking. The book suggested serving it with potato purée, which was delish.

It wasn't bad, but I won't make it again. I wanted to try something different, but it turns out we both prefer fish with a bit of crust on it. I'll stick to pan-frying and grilling.

Did you make all that? Sounds amazing.
