Home alone for dinner (wife is out with the girls), so a cheeseburger with roasted potatoes (red potatoes tossed with olive oil and fresh rosemary from the garden).

Nice plates!

We're just snacking tonight as we had a wonderful lunch at Red Lobster...Yep, Red Lobster!

I had a perfectly seasoned and cooked "wood fired" combo. The plate came with a bed of garlic butter crisp tender green beans (hold the red potato slices), and arranged on top was a small slipper lobster, several perfectly fired grilled shrimp, and a little piece of also wood fired salmon. All was slathered in garlic butter sauce perfectly seasoned. I sure was pleasantly surprised, as it's always a test of the meal if I could do it better. Not this time!
SousChef had Lobster Pizza and oyster shooters.
We were both very happy.

To clear a statement, they were oysters on the half shell, NOT shooters. They were quite large, but a little disappointing in taste. We got spoiled up in Seattle, where we went for Kayelle's birthday, we had Hood Canal oysters among others which were delicious.

Absolutely nothing wrong with Red Lobster. I remember my dear now deceased mother being furious with me for stopping off at RL to have lobster fest with a girlfriend instead of coming straight home (2 hour drive after a 2 hour flight) for her really nasty seafood lasagna that had been twice reborn/frozen.

Nice pics, Craig and GG!

K and Sous, I really miss the fabulous oysters when I lived in the Great Northwest....OMGosh. We used to grill them on the half shell with jalapeno butter and I'll never forget them.

Tonight's dinner was a loaded up omelette - chopped bell peppers, chives, ham and cheese, with hash browns and watermelon on the side.
