Ooh, I love Paula Deen. Though just watching her show makes my thighs expand, I think. Definitely not for the diet (or thigh) conscious.

I was going to do a shrimp stir fry, but I'm just NOT up to cleaning a bunch of shimps tonight. Plus, I'm out of ginger and dont want to go to the store. So I'm doing an easy bacon and fava bean risotto with a salad. Sounds better than stir fry to me, anyway... creamy comfort food.

Got the best meal lined up. I have a meeting tonight but before it we are going to a small bar/grill know for their outrageously delicious and juicy hamburgers and homemade onion rings, and someone else is paying for it! Now that's a great meal!

I'm in the mood for seafood..so maybe steamed clams or fried oysters.

Well we have had a lovely warm day here - sun shining, T shirts on and getting sweaty. So I decided on a summery meal. I made some small meatballs and cooked them in the oven. Blanched shaved carrots and peas and mixed the lot with taglitelle and pesto - it was wonderful.

Joe, that reminds me of a little bar and grill near where I used to live. They had a mushroom burger that was incredible. A huge juicy patty on a kaiser roll with red onion and all the trimings. It was served open faced and they would pack perfectly sauted mushrooms into a measuring cup and turn it out onto the pattie. I have tried it myself but the mushrooms always seem to collapse. Apparently the place has changed owners and isn't the same which is a shame.

I used to get a great burger (sort of) in Ohio at a bar called The Shamrock Inn. By Petersberg, in E Palestine (sp) or one of those little towns. The sandwich was called the Shamrock club and it was a triple decker hamburger/club sandwich. They always seemed to layer things so it stayed together reasonably well considering the size, small footprint, but tall. I have a hard time putting lettuce, tomato and mayo on a burger without it falling apart.

Spagetts tonight with meat sauce and Italian sausage.

Out to dinner with friends, to a microbrewery. They actually have some pretty good food, too.
