I am envious. I had two breakfast sausages with one egg, runny yolk.

My daughter made white clam sauce with Linguini. I was hoping she would send me a plate. No such luck.

Our dinner was good, but to be honest that recipe needs some tweaking.
Next time I will cut the lemon juice by half, and increase the wine for the liquid. I love garlic, but 1/4 cup is just silly for the volume involved. We loved the combo of artichoke and sun dried tomatoes however. I'll make it again with my personal notes though.

Kayelle, do make your personal notes as you go along with the recipe or do you write them after you have tasted the dish?

What Kay said.

I was going to make pot o' pig and serve it with rødkål (Danish red cabbage) and potatoes. But, then I got a migraine so we scrounged. I had smoked salmon on a bagel and a potato latke. Stirling had a couple of sandwiches and a couple of latkes.

Thanks for asking. I do both.
If the recipe sounds good to me as written, I try to stay close to the recipe when I make it the first time although tonight I knew right off, the recipe had flaws with too much lemon juice and way too much garlic.
I'll write the recipe again, as the ingredients have real promise for a great dish.

taxy, I hope your headache goes away soon.

I sure wish we had eaten at MsM's house. I grocery shopped today with no leftovers in the fridge that I could use. They're all meat-based, and today was Good Friday, so...no meat. Instead I fell back on two of the Legal Seafood heat-and-eat soups that I had bought when they were on sale. A real mistake, since we both found them tasteless and uninspired. Himself had a clam chowder, I had a lobster bisque. I also made salads with mixed greens, shrimp, hard-cooked eggs, Kalamata olives, tomato, and fresh mushrooms. Yummy salad that would have been better only if I could have tossed bacon on it.

Looks like I'm not alone on the burger front.

Gumbo?



Mangoes?



Or maybe just having boat drinks?
