On a whim, I ended up in Dallas on a day trip. I'm having dinner in Irving at a place called The Ranch. Food's pretty good. This is Chipotle Meatloaf with a veggie medley. Washing it down with some local Texas wine.

Steve, you should have told me you were coming to Dallas. I've never heard of The Ranch, but I don't get over to Las Colinas/Irving that often. The menu looks good. I wonder how good their chicken fried steak is. The jalepeño gravy sounds interesting.

Oh, on topic, I'm having some USDA Prime ribeye tonight (I went to COSTCO today), sous vide then seared. Medium rare, of course. :chef:

I picked up marinated, thinly sliced pork and banchan from a Korean market this morning and made Dae Ji Bulgogi for dinner.

After grilling, the pork is wrapped in red leaf lettuce with ssamjang (seasoned soybean paste) and shredded scallions.

The banchan was seasoned sweet cucumber slices, white kimchi, and pressed fish cakes.

I had some leftover eggplant parmesan, Mrs. T abstained.

We had a late lunch with some friends at a seafront restaurant that has become a favorite for many during rough weather at high tide (and we timed it perfectly). We're getting some high surf from Jose, with a lot of splashover on the road along the ocean. A good wave sends water splashing up over the windows at the restaurant. Ocean facing windows don't open for that reason.

Boneless/Skinless chicken breast (seasoned and seared in cast iron pan then pan went into oven on convection roast for 15 minutes), mashed sweet potato (cut in half, unpeeled, 15 minutes on steam in Instant Pot, skin fell right off, mashed with butter, splash blackstrap molasses, pinch brown sugar and dash maple extract), stuffing and pan gravy. Dinner was cooked in under 30 minutes.

Split pea soup, jalapeno corn muffins, and roasted sweet potato wedges. The corn muffins were a Jiffy boxed mix, with chopped jalapenos added to the batter. :)

Honestly, I had completely forgotten that you lived in the area. It was a spontaneous decision. I scored some free concert tickets for the new Pavilion Music Factory venue in Las Colinas and had some airline miles to use up.

The food at the Ranch was good. Nice atmosphere, too. I would recommend it.

Nice food porn, people! Cheryl, those little Jiffy corn muffin boxes are nice for a quick extra, aren't they? I always have one on hand...you know, just in case.


It was real slop weather today; I wasn't in a hurry to leave to run errands. By the time I got home, the leftover smothered chicken was looking good. At least I made a fresh veggie. Can you tell broccoli is cheap right now? :LOL:

I really like Jiffy cornbread/muffins. It's not quite as good as the cornbread I make from scratch, but it is still very good.

We had PB & J sandwiches with a salad and fresh fruit for supper. Mom wanted French Toast for lunch today (homemade) and we were full from that so just did simple and easy for supper.
