My youngest son is 25 years old today and wants me to grill burgers. Friends are due any minute and then we will fire up the grill!

I'm making shrimp curry - sauteed garlic, ginger, onions, spices, etc. in a tomato/coconut/cilantro sauce. Rice on the side.

wow uncle bob! those catfish look perfect!


we had a good day of fishing: sunnies, perch, and largemouths, so i'm just getting in my post now.

we stopped at the new orleans steakhouse on route 15 in jefferson, nj. on the way home.

we've driven by the place hundreds of times but never stopped in. i'm glad we finally did today. the food was really good, the portions were huge and prices good, and the service very good and staff was nice.

we had a 20 minute wait for a table where we stood by the open carving station near the waiting area by the entrance. the chef was deftly cutting slices off 4 huge prime rib roasts to order, and when he had no order to fill, he'd cut up sample pices and gave them to the kids who were waiting alongside us.

when we were seated we started with salads, then dw had the nawlin's style bbq'd chicken and shrimp with cole slaw and mashed, my boy had a strip steak and fried shrimp with a loaded baked potato, and i had a huge honkin' slab of beautifully medium rare prime rib with dirty rice.

dw's chicken was so big, and both of our steaks were more than we could eat by far so we all came home with tomorrow's lunch.

finally, dessert was a shared slice of the best chocolate mousse cake i've ever had in my life. it was rich and light with a chocolate cake crust, and a tasty darker chocolate shell on top.
