Nice looking dinner table Taxi! I'll be doing a report about our dinner on Rock's thread.

It was great!

Creative, I have no idea what cold chips are. Are they like our french fries? And what is cos lettuce? Otherwise, from what I deciphered, your dinner sounds delicious!

Nice spread Taxy, and complete with candles! Looks really good.


I had a taco salad from Pizza Factory for dinner. I love their taco salads and have never been disappointed.

I didn't actually cook tonight...I played with a bunch of different flavoured vinegars and EVOOs and came up with some excellent salad dressings. Of course, I had to taste all of them, so I ate salad, and more salad.

Pizza here too, but in the oven. Used Boboli shells I found in the freezer - decided I like the Naan bread better. Himself has sausage, ham, mushrooms, onions, and mozz. Mine has sausage, ham, mushrooms, tomato, basil, spinach, black olives, mozz. We had quick salads to start.

taxy, that is a great looking table. All except your tin foil bobeches, that is.

We were busy yesterday. Karen finished canning the spicy tomato jam and bagging up some oven dried tomatoes. I spent most of the day smoking tasso and andouille. I keep the temperature around 200F until the internal temp is 155F. I then wrap in foil to rest. After the rest period, the carry over cooking brought the internal temp to 160F. Smoking at that temperature makes for a long day, especially when you have to do things in batches.

For dinner, I made the meatball and sides we usually make for Bahn Mi sandwiches, but had lettuce wraps instead.

Noticed that I see. I didn't even know those had a name in English. I haven't been able to find any disposable ones here. Of course not knowing what they are called doesn't help.

I too recently had a great braised short ribs recipe in a restaurant. Nice when you can find a great local meal.
