It almost sounds like you were there

It was great fun. It was organized by our neighborhood civic league and cost $20 per person; it was a fundraiser for the league, the neighborhood park maintenance fund and the city humane society. We met a lot of new neighbors and got to see the insides of some of the houses. We live in a historic district, so I love any opportunity to do that.

Haa haa.....I didn't realize my typo for "mush fun" as I joined you in a glass of vino GG.

Wish I could have really been there for your neighborhood tour.

Ended up making herbed fishcakes with steamed broccoli, cauliflower, green beans, carrots and zucchini and baked butternut and sweet potato cubes.

another tasty looking plate, mofet. you always get such good colour on your meats without overcooking them. cast iron?

and pac, your snails and paella look great. i'm craving those snails. are they topped with butter and wilted spinach, or more of a garlic/parsley persillade? nothin better than snails cooked in their shells and their own liquor (or is it liquer?)

and lol, andy. you must have been convincing to get the pork to unroll by threatening it with a knife.

i got my sushi after another really long day. i had to work until noon, which caused dw to go off on me for spending too much time at work and with baseball, and not enough time on/in the house. so when i got home i decided to forego sleep and cleaned the downstairs rooms, did dishes, folded and put away laundry, and cleaned the bird cages, then headed back down to the field for baseball practice.
after a good practice, we went our for really good japanese.

we started with salads with garlic dressing, and my boy had miso soup; dw had a house special gyoza and wild veggie soup that was out of this world. then, my boy had a dragon roll and a rainbow roll; dw had the scallop bento (scallops teryaki, chicken tonkatsu, dumplings, steamed carrots, and rice; and i had the sushi deluxe (3 tuna, 2 eel, 2 salmon, 2 pieces of egg and oshinko big rolls, 2 masago gunkan style, 1 red snapper, 1 shrimp, a tuna roll, and a california hand roll).

wow, was it good.

we went home stuffed, played baseball on the wii until bedtime, and now i'm back at work.

i hope it's a quiet night. so far, so good.

Thanks, Tom.
The snails came from the store all ready to pop in the oven. I couldn't tell you what the green stuff they used in the compound butter was, but the garlic flavor was strong. Just how I like it.

Thank you Tax and Bucky.

Yes, I use a screaming hot cast iron stove top ridged grill pan for most of my meats.

And what, pray tell, do you do to prevent a screaming smoke detector from blowing out your eardrum? Seems like every time I use the grill or a cast iron fry pan we have to put up with the noise for ten minutes. No way to bypass the things. And the vent in the microwave over the stove only blows the smoke around - the better to reach the detector, I'm afraid.

I have a button on my smoke detector that tells it to ignore smoke for 10 minutes.

The previous one would tell me that I was making toast.
