thanks Barb........
I was at my girlfriends parents house in Tijuana many many years ago, thought I was gonna die but that's another story, anyway, they had on the table a small jar of what 'these' things I bought look like. I picked up the jar just to look and Blanca's mom [who was deathly ill with collitis [sp?] said, "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" I hadn't heard her speak until then and I almost fell out of my chair. Later Blanca told me those are very hot pepper seeds or something, anyway, I was told my palette couldn't take those or I'd die for sure.

It's beautiful here today, so...I have some beef tenderloin I cut into steaks and will grill. It will be Steak Frittes with Bearnaise , grilled yellow peppers (they need to find a home soon!). I have lots of Bibb lettuce, so a salad of some kind, or maybe a Caesar Salad. Bavarian Apple Torte for dessert.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

I'm attempting a modern take on eggplant parmesan from an interviewed chef on Colameco's show.

Thinly sliced (lengthwise) egplant fried in olive oil, layered similar to lasagna with buffalo mozzarella and tomato confit, toppped with basil pesto. When the slices are fried, they wrinkle slightly to make little pockets for the mozzarella and tomato confit. Pretty sweet! A caesar salad and some toasted country bread with evoo.

BTW: Lunch was Porterhouse Philly cheesesteaks with sauteed onions, red/green bell peppers. You need to indulge once in a while. When I took it out from under the broiler to melt the cheese I was like -

Tilapia with prosciutto and sage as the entree. Not sure what I'll add for sides. Am considering incorporating an avocado into a salad. We'll have the last of the cinnamon-frosted zucchini bars for dessert. Didn't get to them last night.

The 6 1/2 lb. stand-up comedian chicken is in the oven. It's like beer can chicken, but I have a special roaster and I use wine and herbs instead of beer. Tomorrow, I will make a good stock out of the bones and then I have a catering gig to make Jambalaya on Tuesday for a publishing company. They love my heaven and h-ll sauce that I make to go with it. Considering I'm a Finn living in Minnesota, my Jambalaya is legendary. It may be my only claim to fame.

The lamb "drob"

The lamb "drob" is a traditional recipe for easter in romania using the lamb organs. Today was the first time I did one, really happy with the result :)
