It is Dad and me tonight and we have baseball and football games so we are having our traditional hot dogs with fried onions.

Seriously, welcome to DC. It is good to see another West Coaster!
haha Come on over! Bring the sake! I actually just recently learned how to make this since I moved to Vancouver. Where I lived before it was very hard to find the ingredients to make the stuff.

Wasn't feeling well today so dinner was scrambled eggs, toast, and bacon.

So yesterday I made some sauce with hot Italian sausage and I'm about to fry up the eggplant and assemble the dish so I can pop it into the oven for dinner.
UPDATE. We had the eggplant parm and SO loved it. She told me it was excellent and that it was the best she'd ever had.

How's that for dumb luck?!

We had fresh Yakutat Halibut (flown down to the tip of Tejas via my favorite vendor), topped with a tomato pesto, along with fresh asparagus topped with cayenne-seasoned breadcrumbs, sheep's milk pecorino Romano, chopped roasted red pepper, & Belgian butter. In addition, a brown/wild rice/wild mushroom medley. That sure sounds fancy!
