For Mother's Day, we had an extravagant meal of fresh lobster and porterhouse for her, and lesser steaks for the rest of us, if I recall correctly. I made kebobs with new your strip steak yesterday for guests at our home, with grilled portabelos (sp) that measured 4 inches across, with home made lemonade and home made slaw. I'm the sole cook in my house right now (wife can but doesn't) and so I wanted pure comfort food without any fuss. For dinner tonight, I purchased some frozen, ready made bread dough, and some Koegles hot dogs. I'm having pigs in the blanket, and I'm going to open a can of Van Kamp's pork and beans to go with them. Top it all off with a glass of milk and I'm satisfied. I want something that tastes great from my childhood, and nothing fancy. Breakfast was fried eggs, basted with sausage grease that they fried in, fried sausage patties, toast, and milk.

Sometimes you want steak, and sometimes you want hot dogs. Tonight, I'm digging into those dogs, all wrapped up in that freshly baked bread.

Eye Round Roast (rubbed with EVOO, garlic powder, onion powder, Goya adobo seasoning, accent, ground sea salt, ground peppercorns, ground red pepper flakes, cayenne, Hungarian hot paprika, ground thyme and ground rosemary placed on a round rack in cast iron pan and convection roasted), steamed fresh veggies (broccoli, cauliflower & carrots), mashed potatoes (butter, ½ & ½ & sour cream) and burgundy pan gravy.
Ya know, if there was someone to make it for me, I'd eat that in a minute. About the only thing that might sound better to me would be some fresh brookies, caught from the Ankadosh, cleaned, dusted in flour, and pan fried to perfections, with some french fries on the side.

Thanks, LP. I'm not sure what you mean or why you have to fix just her posts, but it sure is weird having the font change part way through to a much smaller size. You would think if she was pasting it from a document it would all stay the same size At least in MS word it does. That's what I use sometimes.
But anyway...

Sorry they wouldn't let you board the Beaver, I thought it was still dog sled season up there or I wouldn't have asked.

Hey where is there a joe's crab shack around here? And what kind of food is on the menu besides crab? I like fried fish, raw (1/2 shell) or baked clams.
one opened a few months ago in clifton on allwood road, near route 3.
sadly, i can't report what's on their menu. we pulled in to the parking lot and the place was JAMMED! there were literally dozens of people waiting inside, outside, and more were arriving from all directions of the parking lot every second. the wait for a table had to be 2 hours or more.

lol, it reminds me of a yogi berra-ism. he once said of a popular restaurant, "it's so crowded, nobody goes there anymore..."

btw, very nice din-din, as usual. that gravy looks so rich! yummo!

anyway, we totally changed gears, hopped on 3 to the turnpike, then up 46 to "so moon nan jip" in pal park for korean bbq. we grilled saewoo gui (shrimp), dak gui (marinated chicken), and joo mul look (marinated cubes of steak). and of course the usual banchan.

that was at 5:30-ish, and i'm still stuffed.


it was fantastic, as usual.

That is the most awesome food picture I have ever seen! Made my day, Rock! Can we get a picture of the finished shoes too?

I DID copy it from MS word. And it happens often. I fix it when I catch it but it doesn't always happen.

Where on Allwood? By Styertowne Mall (with the CVS. Is the All American pub gone?) or the other end by the new Stop N Shop? I haven't driven all the way down Allwood lately. The last time I only went down far enough to hang a u'ie to go to the commons.

BTW I lived in Pal Pk for 3 years (we lived 1 block over from The Golden Eagle and I worked at the Park Lane Theater. I met hub there and Eddie Murphy and his gang came in to see a movie) before it went Korean so I really haven't been back in quite awhile.
