What's on the plate 8/9/10?

WOW!! Its 9:20PM and no dinner thread? Did I miss it? If so please forgive and can a mod merge or delete this one.

We went out to my fav hole in the wall for my belated birthday dinner. It was yummy!! Salad, steak and iced tea (super thin crust pizza to go uncut which will be reheated later).

Is anyone else eating tonight?

We had a really eclectic mix of foods for dinner tonight.

We had luleh burgers. A ground lamb and beef burger seasoned with a near eastern combination of spices. I made a batch of dal makhani for us and my neighbors. That was part of dinner too. One of the neighbors I delivered the Dal to gave us some butter chicken.

What a delicious combination of flavors.

As darling husband requested, I did my

I finally went ahead and made some Galliano chicken (like in the most recent issue of "Saveur"). It was great!!! Served with a little risotto, roasted fennel, and fresh sliced heirloom tomatoes. I'm gonna do this one again, using big ol' fat chicken thighs, rather than the pounded chicken breasts with proscuitto and goat cheese. (I rarely use chicken breasts at all). The sauce was to die for! I'd never had Galliano before--the craze for it was a little before my drinkin' days. So I did make a point to taste it beforehand. The finished sauce really didn't quite taste like the Galliano, it had a unique and wonderful flavor.

My elk burgers on fresh baked foccacia, fresh spinach, tomatoes, onions, avocado, blue cheese and mayo. Excellent with homemade sweet potato fries.

Those sound so good! Do you "get" your own elk, or do you buy it in the store? Around here, that kind of meat has to be ordered online.
