Since this is our 'Friday night,' we tried The Melting Pot for fondue the first time. They were part of a special dining program in our city and featured a mixed entree of shrimp, lobster, chicken, beef besides the crudites, salad and chocolate course. Pretty happy overall. It was a nice leisurely dinner in an adults only room. Very enjoyable.

I saw a joke today where the mother is taking half of her child's Halloween candy. Her reason, Candy Tax. Everyone has to pay the Candy Tax. Even children.

Raw? Cold? It's dinner time here in Los Angeles and it's still 70 degrees outside! In fact I appreciate the reminder of the topic title to spur me to turn off my air conditioner -- which probably hasn't cycled in a few hours -- our outside temperature having reached 82 today.

I've been unwell a few days and have been farming my refrigerator and freezer. (Including a few nuke 'n puke dinners.) Feeling better today I went by the supermarket and picked up resupply.

I got a nice deal on some modest sized rib eye steaks (all the rest of the steaks in most markets are super sized) and I'm doing my steak quick in a cast iron griller pan, along with my Potatoes Franconio recipe (named after an extinct restaurant) which is mostly a sliced potato, shuffled and reassembled into a potato shape, then baked and repeatedly basted in butter. Very delicious!

I'll have some wasabe sauce with my steak.

Greg, remember that there are 3000 miles of climate differences between LA and Boston.

*******************

We had a very autumnal supper on a very autumnal kind of day. I had a little chicken to roast, so I put all the veggies in the oven too. Except for the red sweet potato that I microwaved and we split. I thought it was too starchy, but Himself thought it was fine. He probably put more butter on his half.

We filled our plates with chicken, roasted beets with a dusting of cinnamon, potato, and Brussels sprouts two ways. One dish had them mixed with chayote (something else we wanted to try), the other with apple, grapes and walnuts. Both were yummy. Heck, it was ALL yummy!

Looks good, CG.

I slow roasted a pork shoulder yesterday and nibbled on it, but this evening it was even better. I refrigerated the pan juices overnight so I could remove the solidified fat today and make a gravy with the good stuff.

So tonight's dinner was roast pork, mashed Yukon golds with gravy, and steamed broccoli with a little butter and cracked black pepper. I'm stuffed.

Chayote also goes well with corn in a succotash-type dish, sans the lima beans unless you happen to like them of course. Also in stuffings with shrimp like you'd do a stuffed zucchini.

That's what I made yesterday for supper. Only I roasted my potatoes whole with the roast. I also made the chocolate pudding. It is so rich when you make it yourself. Doesn't even resemble the box stuff.

Z, I hate to say it, but that stuffing mix may have more carbs in it than plain white bread. Something like Stove Top brand has 21 grams of carbs per ounce, whereas the same size portion of white bread has 15.
