Fools Day Dinner - 4/1/2019

Brace yourself for some crazy news stories and press releases (even crazier than the last few years!).


Dinner will be mussels and chorizo, Dutch oven bread, and a salad. I'm making two small loaves of bread, one with diastatic malt powder and one without. I've read some good things about the malt powder, and I'm about to find out what effect it has.

I'll see what I have the spoons to make later today. I'll start making a salad soon. A salad goes with just about anything.

I have a New York Strip Steak de-frosting
a Russet Potato (the smallest one I could find-I just now weighed it and it's .87lb!) that will go into the oven - I think half of it will be for Home Fries in the morning
some Bacon to top the Potato and then more for breakfast tomorrow
some fresh Asparagus for the grill, along with the Steak
and something else, maybe, I'm not sure, we'll see

Lobster Thermidor a Crevette, with a mornay sauce, served in a Provencale manner with shallots and aubergines, garnished with truffle pate, brandy and with a fried egg on top... and spam.

Margherita galette with country fried potatoes , butter poached eggs and blistered, homegrown, truffle salted shi-she-to peppers (spelled phonetically, shi-shi-to is correct spelling and hyphenated to avoid bad word censor). I got "lucky" and apparently got the only spicy 1 in the bunch.
