Tres elegante, Steve!

Elk burger, probably stuffed with feta and grilled. And something along the lines of shrimp scampi.

Haven't had elk for ages, Pac. How does it compare with bison? Sounds wonderful.

There I thought I was going to get away with cooking. Huh, huh. Kids are staying home and I had to cook for them. Thank G-d they love tomato soup and grill cheese sandwiches. Also friend of our are going to visit their son in Chicago, so I had to make the cake (well 2 cakes) for both of our sons (they are in the same school). Few, now I do not even want to go out any more, might as well stay home and eat my soup.

Sorry not a very good picture. But tastes good.

My wife and I are taking our best friend out to dinner tonight for his birthday. We're going to a popular izakaya (Japanese tavern) nearby. I'm craving for some oden and a pitcher of beer.
