It didn't come out exactly the way I remembered it in the fine SF restaurant but it served several purposes. My lovely wife didn't have to worry about cooking after returning home. It built my confidence a little in the kitchen (the room in the house where I'm the least comfortable).
Congratulations!

I can tell it is before my time but it's an awesome show. If you ever get the chance, it's worth the effort to watch.
Oh I feel old. One question, where they the Black and White episodes or the color ones?

It was in color. I did not realize the show was that old that it is in also black & white. We watched an episode late last night where Gilligan found a single orange and they were all deciding who would get to eat it because of the shipman disease they could get without eating citrus. The orange finally decomposes before they can eat it. Then in the end Gilligan shows up with a grapefruit!!! He didn't know a grapefruit was a citrus also!! I thought my wife was going to pee herself she was laughing so hard. We promised we won't watch anymore until tonight after dinner.

Now I need to post a new thread about a pot roast that I will be trying today in a crock pot. It sounds easy but I can really screw things up in a kitchen. What is the idiom? "Bull in a china shop"?

FYI,
Gilligan's Island ran from 1964 to 1967.

Just one question: Ginger or Mary Ann?

*points at her tag line* Why choose?

And there were several made-for-TV movies as well.
