Tonight DW is going out with a gaggle of her friends to have dinner, and then to see "Hunger Games" (is it just me, or is there something oxymoronic about that combination of activities?).

So I'm fending for myself tonight. Since Mrs. K isn't keen on super spicy foods, I'm thinking it will be a Thai Curry night for me. I am craving something scorching hot. To help things along, I have a bottle of ghost pepper sauce that I sometimes bring with to Thai restaurants, since they almost always tone down the spice for Minnesota palates.

Oh, and a nice beer to wash it down with. I'm partial to Goose Island Honker's Ale with spicy Thai food.

Wish me luck!

I planned on salmon but woke up with a taste for fried pork chops.

saturdays are usually busy days for us but we're both home most of the day so I'm making salmon over a bed of spinach salad for lunch (using my schlemmertopf and this recipe Salmon Poached In Beer Recipe by admin | ifood.tv)

and will fry up pork chops for dinner. Might get my fix for all things fried and fry some potatoes too.

Sounds really good Steve, except I think you'll need 2-3 beers (or more) to balance the meal.

Steve,

Sounds wonderful. I have a real penchant for the piquant genre of chili peps and curries ... I adore Indian, especially vindaloo prawns or chicken ...

Icy cold beer is refreshing with piquant cuisines ... enjoy.

Have nice evening.
Margi.

Spent the day helping my son and his girlfriend move her friend (the 3 of them shared and apartment) and clean their old apartment. I think Papa John will be cooking for us tonight.
