CG, you need to admire the beauty of my duct-taped and shimmed freezer drawer. And what a pain in the butt it will be to replace the door or the whole fridge.

Did you ever post a photo? I'm sure you did a bang-up job on trying to make it functional. I suggest next time your DH takes something out of commission, you do likewise to him. I don't mean take HIM out of commission. After all, he is worth the price of his paycheck.

We would go out one night a week for "date night." We were very picky about where we went -- no Applebee's. Going out was about trying something new, or just going to a favorite place where we could be waited on, and eat great food -- then get up from the table and walk away from the dirty dishes.

To me, eating out is either something I do when I'm on the road and can't cook, or it is something I do to truly enjoy a dining experience, and like I said, not have to clean anything after dinner.

Well, I do sometimes get a craving for a Whataburger.

We had the Smother bacon Asiago wine chicken. Since my Asiago was matured I just tested a little , separate from the main dish , just in case it would go horrible wrong and it did. It tasted digestive fluid, old wine and smelled of used socks.

So I used another Italian cheese and it turned out lovely and we both enjoyed it.

My husband said to me, I think you done this before and I went hrm, I think so too. So after going to the attic to get my old note book ( hid it there because my daughter, as baby, loved it a little too much) and I found the recipe is the same as Viv's mozzarella Chicken, however with mozzarella and not Asiago. So this recipe is staying, we will have it again.
For the love of Cheese!

We also had the smothered bacon chicken with asiago cream sauce. While I wouldn't describe it quite the way CP did, it did have a very strong winey/acidic taste. If I make it again, I'll cut down on the wine a bit (I used a Pinot Gris) and add more cream and/or cheese, probably both. BTW, I used an Italian DOP Asiago labeled as Fresh. We had roasted brussels on the side with a mushroom, bacon, cream, and sherry sauce. Hmm, sherry might be a good sub for the wine in the chicken dish...

medtran49: I used gato negro white wine ( I could afford that and it works for cooking) but my cheese was way too mature for cooking, it was more chatting and nibbling cheese, which I did later.

Cdog - I agree. I travel most weeks and eat out constantly. My wife eats out when I am going, as she cooks very little. So when I am home we like to eat, especially on the weekends for the experience. Sometimes that is at home, sometimes out. when you go out to eat every night, as some of my friends do, it is a chore, takes the fun out of it. With all that said, I did a Rib eye on my new grill, which we split, and Kroger had lobster on sale, so that was it with a Caprese salad.

Plans to eat at one of the many food stands at our towns "Good Old Days" celebration were thwarted by rain, so it was hot dogs at home..

No rain today so down to the celebration we go.. Will try something different @ a food booth...
