Went out for sushi for lunch at a new bar. It didn't make my short list of favorites, but it was ok.

Then I went to the local Whoel Foods store and did some wine and cheese tastings. Unfortunately they were out of the red I like, so I had to buy it at another store. Been drinking Bully Hill's table red out of New York.

For dinner I'm going to do a quick parchment steamed fish.

Picked up some New Zealand Lamb Shanks for dinner Monday.

Cider-roasted chicken here. Whole chicken with bacon strips draped over and basted with apple cider. Chicken's nestled on a "nest" of quartered baby red potatoes, pearl onions, green peppers and small tomatoes. Homemade Boston Creme Pie for dessert.

Sunday 'Dinner' Nov. 12th.

So I FINALLY got a day off, so I decided to cook for some family and friends. I just bought a new knife, so I'm using it as much as possible, so I made a salsa. Then I made a caprese salad.

·Tomatoes - Lots and lots of tomatoes. Probably about 12 medium sized tomatoes. 3 quarters of them a medium dice, and the rest brunoise)
·Green Onions (about 3, fine chopped).
·Cilantro - Ugh... the 'right' amount (Hey, leave me alone, when I cook at home I like having my wine, ok!).
·Yellow Bell Pepper - Fine Chop. (Just to give a little bit of crunch.)
·Garlic - About 3 cloves, minced.
·Onions - About 2, medium sized, fine chop.
·Mom & Dad (Salt and Pepper).
·Olive oil, warmed up with Chili flakes.

Caprese Salad:
·1 small-medium sized tomato (very ripe) per salad. Sliced.
·1 Bocconcini cheese ball. Sliced. (You can get three perfect same sized slices from the Bocconcini and tomato.)
·Pesto - It's pesto, you know, basil, parmigiano reggiano, pine nuts, garlic, olive oil... PESTO!
·Balsamic Vinegar Reduction.
·Feta Cheese - Just sprinkled around here and there.
·Mom & Dad.

... Yes, I plated a Mexican Dish, and an Italian dish on Asian plates, I know.

ah, I've put the kids to bed. Now it's time to sit down and relax.

For dinner I had "noodles and cheese", it's what Aidan wanted and I was too lazy to do anything else. Dessert is hot tea and Lindor Dark Chocolate Truffles. Yum. They melt in your mouth.
