It is hard to pull wool over my eyes around here or anyone elseís for that matter. This is why I asked the question. Lasagna would have been a good answer, although not what I am/ is/ was/ looking to find. Ö What PF wins, besides gratitude. What is the max-- 3 stars, 4, 5 stars, an xtra kiss from Shrek. I canít make up what is, Is. My alt brain. Once identified the dish is pretty simple. I would be hard pressed to even find this pic again. I chose it at random off the net what I have in mind.
I had lunch at a perfectly good Chinese buffet. After while the server set down my check and as per usual, a fortune cookie on top. The other Server came along and Scooped up the cookie and took it away. Unopened. On the back of the fortune is always todayís Lucky Numbers. So Much For That! Just walked by and took it away. Not like they are short on cookies or anything. It was gone in an instant. Random, I guess I was Lucky my plate was not removed. And even if it was brought back, it would not necessarily be the same cookie. Too bad. O well. Luckily, they had the half a bazillion $$power ball numbers called yesterday and neither of us won. I didnít buy into it so, I save $4 over the weekend. Maybe you did , in which case, gooder luck, may the power be with you next time, and stay away from that server with the quick fingers.
I think further, I was reading a recipe, one of those mags articles that want us to have a nice weekend ini the coundry, a story with food pix, not precisely Ina Garten, but sorta like that, it didnít come from her,although as stratified and do-able. The torta I prev saw I think was Weighted down on assembly,, much like a muffaletta.
The Pic I chose after PF identified is indeed somewhat what I am seeking. I think it may be hard to put a brick on top and not crush the bread or pastry shell. So , not so much p‚tť or wrap in bacon and not a stromboli either. Besides, my challenge is to make this as a vegetarian dish. Scramble up some eggs filler, cheese, roasted peppers, or drain tomato slices, zukes, green beans or asparagus, flat out some broccolis or brussel sprouts no lumps, spinach or arugula, a wee bit of herb with flavor, garlic I am sure, maybe some butternut squash, what else I dunno. I think it has to be taller than a cake pan, more like a cheese cake height. Not over the top. Just look like it is normal and is no work or bother to it , taste good and without ego. All the butter layers of a croissant while ignoring the calories. I guess. If I find or figure a recipe, I will post. I think this is more a personal challenge than inventing a wheel. Itís been done, I just need to find it and fine tune it.
This was not originally a contest. I asked a Question. I got my Answer. I am happy . Now all I need is a recipe to accomplish. Or make one up. Then I will be really happy. If I bring it to a brunch party and it is well received without going overboard, I will be really really happy. If it is or isnít , I am still a happy man.
SoÖ. What does PF Really Win. She will find out on another Thread she often visits and contributes; some of you may read and do or donít contribute, and one I have never done before. As I previously indicate, I know what I am doing, even when I donít; now you can be like me and do it too.
Spectacular without fingerprints. Find it.
