Dinner Tuesday, 8-14-2018 ~ Happy Birthday Steve Martin

Funny guy. Turns 73 today. In case you have no idea: 10 Things You Might Not Know About Steve Martin

No guests of honor at our table tonight, so they'll be missing out on what I call Mexican chicken. Easy supper of chicken breasts that are browned, then simmered in that jar of salsa that I want to get out of the fridge. I'll serve them along side rice and black beans, and pan-fried corn kernels seasoned with...? Seasoning to be decided later.

What are you serving up at your place today?

Interesting article, CG. I knew zero out of 10 of those tidbits about Steve Martin. Love that guy!

I'll be having those beautiful Argentine shrimp I dug out of the freezer yesterday. I think I'm going to just roast them and enjoy with a simple blend of butter, garlic, and parsley. Side will be either steamed broccoli or a salad - I'm leaning towards salad. I think it will go better with shrimp, plus it's a nice and cool side.

I only knew 1 out of 10. Steve Martin is a very serious and accomplished banjo player. He won a Grammy for Best Bluegrass Album in 2010.



Tonight's dinner is mussels with chorizo and tomatoes, homemade baguette to soak up the broth, green salad on the side.

We’re having an appetizer dinner. A couple of different Asian dumplings and some jalapeño poppers. I have a new dipping sauce recipe to try as well.

That's a pretty funny clip of Steve Martin on The Dating Game,
twice AND won each time!
I knew 3 out of 10 of those fun facts about him, #3,5 & 10, funny guy!

Oh dinner

It rumbled and grumbled real loud outside, but no rain nor thunderstorm so ...

Change of plan. Sitting in Emergency. Went over on my ankle heading out to the garden shed. Darned crocs. I think it is just a sprain. Nice goose egg on the side of it

Sorry to hear that, Rock. Time to put some ice on, lay down with your ankle elevated, and get the gf to bring you cold beer. (my expert medical advice).

Ever since our trip to Sanibel this summer, where we discovered a delicious new take on the NY classic Reuben sandwich utilizing blackened fish, we've been making them almost every week. Fish, sauerkraut, cheese, Thousand Island, and rye sounds weird, but it's really good. Plus, it's a healthier alternative which makes my wife happy.

So, tonight was blackened Mahi Mahi Reubens: (the one in the upper right had low fat cheese, for you know who)

Thanks BT. Great advice. But, I think I’ll just sit here in emergency for the next two hours with no dinner and no beer to hopefully be told it is just a sprain.
