LPBeier - what flour do you use for your gluten free batter? Am trying to think why it would be thin. Do you add any xantham gum?

Cooking wise, I have an urge for Kleftiko this weekend.

Sounds delicious.... not sure about the ale, because I don't know what it is.

That looks a whole lot better than the meal I made. We want to get a grill, but it has to be an electric one, since we live in a complex. I have seen some that you can use either indoor or outdoor.

I was thinking the same thing about your dinner. It's got the most important thing mine was missing... GRAVY! (insert drool smiley here )

Just grilled hot dogs tonight, Vit, but you're welcome to come hang out

I have a West Bend "water" grill. It can be used inside (or out, I guess). I do all kinds of things on it when I'm too lazy to fire up the BBQ.

Oh, I buy xantham gum by the bushel!

I guess light would be a better term than thin. You fold in egg whites to make it light and it has a lovely texture, but salmon is a heavier more dense fish so I am not sure it would work. And then I remembered DH can't have eggs right now so that was out. He enjoyed the tempura though!

Broiled Lemon Pepper Salmon with Dijon mustard, white wine, spices, and a little extra virgin olive oil. Brown rice and steamed broccoli on the side.
It's too healthy, so I'll have to have a decadent chocolate something for dessert!

Well, Mark is a meat-n-potatoes guy. He doesn't like it when I try to get creative in the kitchen. I would like to make all kinds of different things, but it's too hard. I love beef and pork, but as I get older, my tastes are turning toward chicken, fish and turkey recipes. He gets bored with a lot of chicken or turkey dinners and only likes one fish... salmon. I love salmon, but the prices at the market have been HUGE lately.

YUM, salmon was just part of my previous post. That is my favorite way to have salmon!! I've never had it with dijon mustard... might have to give it a try one of these days! Your dinner sounds delish!
