Saturday dinner, 30 August....What's cooking?

It looks like a washout of a shore day..Probably go to the movies to see Bottle Shock today.

Dinner tonight will be preceded by mint juleps.

First course is fried eggplant and zucchini stacks with lemon aioli. I also boiled crabs to hammer and pound.

Dinner is pasta with sauteed tomatoes and andouille sausage.

Pound cake for dessert.

Pinot noir with dinner.

i'm going to drive around vb's town on my way home tonight and keep an ear open for pounding.

truthfully, it's back to the same old grind for me. double shift every saturday. catered crapola (aramark sucks eggs) for lunch; dinner is a steeplechase home, bath-books-bed for my boy, then the death race back into the city to pick on leftover dinner caterings. finally, a trip to the diner on the way home at midnight.
or maybe one of the 24/7 fried chicken places that i found up in harlem over the past few weeks.

Oh Bucky, why don't you just drop by Rao's on your way home and see if you can get lucky enough to nab a coveted table there, it'll be late enough, maybe all will have relinquished theirs by then....
as for us, it's too early here, the husband's still asleep, I'm coffee-ing and not sure of his plans. he mentioned going somewhere like Palm Springs for the weekend, we'll see if I can find a hotel there, where we can BAKE

Again, haven't thought too much about dinner. Probably a salad followed by sautčed sole, potatoes of some kind and a vegetable. It has been too hot to think about much except keeping cool!
