Bummer.
I had a buddy that always liked his omelets browned. That's why I wondered. I thought maybe he got used to having his eggs well done somewhere

Brown butter and brandy risotto, with some other stuff in there, too. Maque choux sneaking into the pic

Fajitas. The best I've ever done...and I don't know why they were so much better than normal.

Due to living out of normal type hotels and short projects I have not been cooking. Tonight I ordered pizza.

NY State Fair Food!!!! And it was delicious! But the best dish of all was the gorgeous, funny, charming Australian, Curtis Stone.

Went Eastern Med tonight. Wasn't sure what I was going to do until I hit the markets this AM.

Baba ganoush with flatbreads.

Cucumber and tomato salad w/ feta and a few Greek olives. Drizzled with olive oil and red wine vinegar.

Lamb skewers, marinated in olive oil, lemon juice and a spice mix of cumin, caraway, sumac and fresh oregano. Grilled Vidalia onions on the side. Greek yogurt mix with garlic and mint.

Grilled peaches drizzled with honey infused with cinnamon.

Came out really nice.

Well that was fun and I didn't turn into Gordon Ramsey. Phew!!
The spinach and cheese stuffed manacotti turned out great and the kids learned some knife skills for the basic marinara sauce. Son did the cheese grating, and they each stuffed half the shells with with the cheese/spinach mixture.
Daughter-in-law wrote out the detailed instructions as we went along and they are both excited to make it at home by themselves We had green salad and garlic toast too.. What a lovely afternoon and evening, making memories. Counting blessings here.

We had Asian shrimp with sauteed ginger, garlic, soy sauce, dry white wine, sesame oil, lemon juice, etc., served with brown rice. Steamed broccoli on the side.

I had planned to make Bobotie, but Mr Z surprised me by taking me to a local restaurant (local = less than 20 miles away here in the mountains!).

Simple salad followed by veggie pizza. No meat, wasn't in the mood for meat... I didn't even have room for dessert, so I was a cheap date!

The Bobotie will wait till tonight...
