This was an unusual meal for us. We were breaking in a "new to us" gas grill that we got for a song from a friend who is moving. So tonight we had inch thick t-bones and rib steaks with grilled garlic bread (made from a crusty seedy loaf) rice pilaf thick with sliced almonds and tumeric mashed cauliflower. Dessert was a dab of butter pecan icecream smothered in fresh strawberries, bananas,hot fudge, whipped cream and sliced almonds. It's a darned good thing we can't afford to eat like this every day!

At the risk of breaking my arm patting myself on the back, that was the best corned beef and cabbage meal I have ever made--it was perfect! I always love it, but it seems like I always overcook either the meat or the potatoes, but this time it was so good!

I made some turkey chili with fire roasted stewed tomatoes and a side of homemade, sweet cornbread!

since the weather was so nice, we took a ride down the shore to play games on the boardwalk, and have dinner at our favourite little divey fish market/seafood restaurant in point pleasent, "spike's".
it's a tiny place right on a dock that's reminscient of one of the new england clam shacks that dot the down east coast from maine to connecticut. the food is always great albeit a bit pricey for a dive. however, they certainly know how to cook fish.

we all started with clam chowder (n.e. for my boy and i, manhattan for dw).
for entrees, dw had blackened tuna with asparagus, red peppers, and a baked spud:; my boy had the mini crabcakes; and i had the broiled fisherman's platter (locally caught flounder, diver scallops, clams, and gulf shrimp).
everything was good but my broiled clams were outstanding. with nothing but a dusting of paprika on them, the clams were sweet and juicy, and intensely clammy from being broiled. i've never had clams that way before, but i'm going to have to try it.
yet another reason to want a pro salamander.

My son and his children took me out to dinner for my birthday. I picked Gridiron Grill, so it was the usual pub fair. I picked that place because it is close, has lots of TV's to watch the basketball playoffs, the menu is family friendly for all ages and I like their Philly Cheese Steak Sub.
