Just wanted to pop in and show Harry I'm "on board" with the "resurrection" this is a photo from this summer, but it was a really tasty burger with grilled onions served with a yummy macaroni salad.

Somebunny, that looks wonderful. Nothing like a good burger with those amazing looking caramelized grilled onions, and a macaroni salad.

I guess I'm in the minority with shell-on shellfish. It may not be something I'd want to mess with in a restaurant, but here at home we love the peel-and-eat-at-the-table shellfish dinners, complete with warm cloths and finger bowls. It's kind of a social thing, and shrimp tastes so much more 'shrimpy' when it's roasted, baked, grilled, whatever, with the shell still intact. Just my humble opinion.

Thank you somebunny, those pics are just from my cellphone - it takes better pics than my camera. lol :-)

Happy cooking!

Rocklobster, I have never had squid before. I would be willing to try it, though. :-)

Thought I'd contribute and help resurrect this thread. I LOVE to see member food photos!

Speaking of shellfish....I grilled some beautiful prawns recently. Marinated in a little olive oil, chopped garlic, lemon juice, and cracked black pepper.

And presumably, by the time you'd photographed it and then got round to sitting down to eat it, it was cold.

I'm sorry but have little patience with all this nonsense of decoratively plating up food. I don't want it to look a mess but there is a world of difference between a neat serving and "artistic plating". If a dish is described on the menu as having a sauce I don't want merely a couple of drips or a paint brush streak of said sauce decorating the plate and if it's supposed to be accompanied by mange-tout, I expect more than two pods balanced on top of a piled up collection of food. And I particularly don't like it if they've spent so much time making the food look pretty that it's cold - or worse still has been microwaved to reheat it.

Rant over.
