Very nice spread, Harry. I love seafood, breaded or otherwise. Nice selection.

That steak sounds lovely Pacanis

The more marbled, the better taste

Guess your new F Processor makes good dough Rock.

Tonight was grilled burgers with sliced onion and tomato. Big salad with blue cheese dressing. Ice tea with mint.

Rocklobster, that pizza is a thing of beauty.

pacanis, enjoy your steak and sea scallops! I love scallops, they are among my most favorite of seafood.

The grilled burgers sound mighty good, too.

I've been in the kitchen most of the day preparing for my grandson's bday party tomorrow, so I will probably just have breakfast for dinner tonight. I'm tired of spending time in the kitchen and a couple of eggs sound pretty good.

I don't know what it is called.

Vegetables saute crisp: zucchini green and yellow, pea pods, broccoli, carrots sliced, red green and yellow peppers, and chopped tomatoes.

Sauce, cooked chopped onions and garlic in oil, then some white wine, heavy cream, S&P.

Add, cooked shrimp and linguini, top with parmesan cheese.
It was YUM.

I'm making my version of this:

Kikuchan's Potato-Crab Salad Recipe - Allrecipes.com

It will be a meal-by-itself and will be served on a bed of red lettuce (also from the garden).
So my version of this is:

1. Boil potatoes in their skins. Dunk in ice water.
2. Remove from ice water, chop, and toss with 2 T vinegar and 2 tsp of freshly chopped parsley.

While the potatoes are boiling, hardboil 3 eggs--2 for the salad, 1 for garnish.

Run out to the garden and gather 1 medium onion, enough celery to make 1/4 cup, 2-3 carrots large enough for grating--mine were about 6-7 inches long and 1 inch in diameter.

3. Grate 1 jalapeno pepper.
4. Combine 3/4 c homemade mayo with 1/4 c buttermilk, 1 hefty tsp of Mrs. McGarrity's lemon-dill mustard (the kind with seeds in it), freshly ground pepper, 1/2 tsp sugar. 1 T freshly chopped dill, 1 T freshly chopped parsley, 1/4 tsp sour salt. Taste and adjust seasonings. Set aside.
5. Add 2 T fresh lemon juice to the crabmeat, set aside.
6. Run back out to the garden and get 1 c bush beans, clean, and steam until tender. Drain and cool.
7. Combine the jalapeno pepper, grated carrot, onion, chopped onion top (about 1/4 of it). green beans, celery, grated carrot in a bowl. Add potatoes. Add 1/2 of the dressing. Taste.
8. Drain lemon juice from the crabmeat.
9. Fold the crabmeat into the potato mixture. Taste. Add more lemon zest.
10. Add 2 of the hb eggs, sliced, to the mix. Fold those in gently. Taste, add more of the dressing if desired.
8. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for 1-4 hours. Serve on a bed of garden lettuce garnished with the remaining hb egg, green onion tops.

It was a gorgeous salad--but now I have to find the manual for my camera. Something is not working....thought I fixed that. Maybe the batteries are low...
