Monday, May 21, 2018, what's for dinner?

Craig made tasso pasta, which is julienned tasso ham, carrots, green and yellow squash, onions, a bit of minced garlic in a parm/cream sauce over pasta. It's a variation of a Paul Prudhomme recipe and a favorite.

My sister screwed up my schedule by changing our dinner into a lunch. While the rigatoni with shrimp and chorizo was delicious, it left me with no desire to cook dinner. As a result, dinner will be leftover pizza.

I made hamburgers with grilled onions and mushrooms topped with sliced tomatoes and Havarti cheese. They were so good they didn't need much with them so we just had some chips and dip.

Okay, I am in Huron, SD. I'm looking at a menu for a local place and considering two things I have never had. One is Hanger Steak, medium rare, of course. The Other is Walleye, served either fried or broiled.

What should I try? Or, should I go with my old faithful ribeye steak?

If I go walleye, should I go battered and fried, or broiled?

HELP!!!

I think hanger steak is another name for blade steak cut differently. I'm not a fan. Get the ribeye.

Fresh walleye is excellent. Try it broiled. Fried is good too.

I talked with a few locals, and went with a lightly breaded and fried Walleye. It was perfectly cooked. I really liked it. I was afraid it would be very fishy like trout, but it was light, flaky and mild -- a lot like red snapper, my favorite fish, but a bit sweeter.

I'm glad I went that way. I love tasting something new and regional, especially when it turns out to be something delicious.

I'm very happy right now. That was a good dinner. Not cheap, but worth it.
