Frank Sinatra's Birthday Dinner - 12/12/2018

Ol' Blue Eyes would have turned 103 today.

Tonight's dinner will be a red potato and salmon bake, which is a variation of a dish from the Black Dog Tavern on Martha's Vineyard. Side will be nuked broc.

A local seafood restaurant has a Sushi & Tunes night once a month - sushi isn't usually on the menu and there's live music - and it's tonight, so we'll be going there. We usually get a sushi roll to share as an appetizer and I can't resist their shrimp tempura tacos, so I'll have those for dinner.
Anyplace where people argue about food is a good place.

I did a pot of My Chicken Chili

I love what the addition of Masa Harina does to the flavor and texture of something like this.

I'm still on the road. I had chicken parm and spaghetti with marinara at the restaurant next to my hotel. I'm staying in the gaslamp district of San Diego, and there is lot of good food within walking distance.

We split a tub of Boston Chowda clam chowder. We also had tuna melts - I added some chopped green salad olives to it and Himself said it was "great!". I also made fruit salads with bosc pear, apple, tangerine, navel orange, Adora grapes, and some cherries I spirited away in the freezer this summer for times like this. More apple pie a la mode for dessert.
