My daughters and grandson treated SO and me to lunch at a local restaurant. Some had breakfast and some lunch. I had roasted duck breast with rice and spinach with garlic.

I've got a corned beef in the oven. When it is done, I'll use the broth to cook carrots, onions, red potatoes and...of course...cabbage. They didn't have boiling onions at the market, so I bought pearls instead. It is one of DH's favorite meals. I made a horseradish sauce too, maybe I'll throw some biscuits in the oven.

Sometimes I do the cabbage as a separate dish. Braised with bacon. Today, just wedges in the broth. (He won't notice!) ;)

I made the supper that I started yesterday. It was steak, an asparagus side salad, and fingerling potatoes. I made a compound butter for the steak and potatoes. The steak was billed as a picanha steak, which was described as a unique Brazilian cut. It's called "culotte" in French and sirloin cap in English. Maybe best known as Brazilian, but not really unique. It was very beefy tasting, as described, but not as tender as advertised. But, for the price, I'll get it again. DH's steak is in two pieces. I was doing an experiment to see if he really prefers well done to medium well done. It turns out that it is only the soft texture of less cooked steak that he finds off putting. Mine was a perfect medium rare. We also found out that DH's only objection to asparagus is the peel. Once I found out that white asparagus has to be peeled (he had that once and liked it), I thought I would try peeling the regular stuff. Yup, that was what he didn't like about asparagus.

All told, a very successful, delicious meal.

That's interesting, taxy. When I made the ham and asparagus quiche, I peeled the asparagus. Himself said it was good "in the quiche". When I made asparagus last week for me, I peeled them and gave Himself a couple of pieces. Once again, he said it wasn't bad. Must be the peel!

Got any tricks to make peeling asparagus easier? Some of them were quite hard to start. Yes, I know, you are supposed to lay the asparagus down, so you don't break them when you peel them.

That's what I do, using my OXO vegetable peeler. I saw Jacques Pepin do it in one of his Facebook videos and decided to try it just for fun. Works great!

I have a more primitive version of a peeler like that. BTW, i will check out that one. It's hard to find that style now and I prefer it. So, basically, it's just practice to make it easier. I did notice that it got easier after a while. But, at first, it was really annoying.

I don't know if you can watch this YouTube video. It has Pepin using the peeler on asparagus. Of it won't open, it's from his shows on KQED public tv. You might have better luck that way.

I watched that video a couple of days ago. It never occurred to me to pay attention to how he peeled the asparagus. D'oh! :doh: Thank you.

D & SIL took us to breakfast for Fathers Day.

Then on to a casino, down the road a bit. We had lunch ( hot dogs & burgers) there.

Had a great time and didn't leave too much money @ the casino. :ermm:

Jeannie and I snacked the rest of the day/evening.

We had grilled pork chops seasoned with Penzeys Ozark seasoning, grilled corn on the cob with Penzeys 4/S Seasoned Salt and bruschetta with homemade pesto, chopped tomatoes and grated Parmesan cheese. Perfect summer dinner.
