"Dinner" and a Movie

We went to the movies on March 2nd.

We picked up some Vietnamese sandwiches, banh mi, from Saigon Sandwich. Saigon Sandwich - Civic Center/Tenderloin - San Francisco, CA

We got the combination - roast pork, "fancy" pork and pate, with mayo, this amazing "secret" sauce/gravy made with the roast pork drippings, pickled carrot and daikon radish salad, cilantro and jalapeno pepper slices, (Gemma usually picks out the jalapenos, but sometimes misses one and it's always a surprise when she bites into it.) All of it served on a fresh crusty baguette toasted just seconds before. Four bucks! As great as the prices are, we always reminisce about when they were only $2.25, and that wasn't so long ago. But the rest of the city has discovered the tiny little sandwich shop and now there's always a line ten people deep when we go there. We always circumvent the line, by calling our order in and picking it up.

Raccoon.

Parboiled, then put in a slow cooker with wild brown rice, potatoes, carrots, fresh mushrooms, and a special vinegar/red wine based sauce created by my wife and me. It does not taste like chicken.

Hey Gemma & Murray:

I know this is way off topic, but thanks for including pictures of the Bay Bridge. Brings back a lot of childhood memories as we crossed it, in passing, or in route to treasure island, to and from Oakland, SF....., well, just a blast from the past. Back on topic, for dinner; grilled meatloaf, mashed potatoes, & glazed carrots (bet you can guess what we had for dinner last night?)

Terry.

The Most Expensive Sandwiches. Ever.

Remember those four dollar combination banh mi (sandwiches)? They became even more memorable yesterday, when we received a lovely little letter from the Metro Transit Authority informing us that we were being fined $255 for being parked in a bus zone. $255! But, no, get this - yes, we did see the meter "maid" and yes, we were in the bus zone, BUT we were in the car and we did move AND they never handed us a ticket, we didn't even know we were getting a ticket. They noted that we "drove" away - well, yes, because the meter maid seemed to be writing a ticket for the car parked behind us with an expired meter and thought we were "up" next.

That makes it $131.50 per sandwich. We think we just might Yelp this.

So, for your viewing enjoyment, a little video clip. Please forgive the four letter word used to describe "stuff". We apologize in advance if this offends anyone.

We're not Irish, but on March 17th, our house certainly smelled like we were.

Easter Dinner?

No big fixin's here - am alone. A big pot of sweet and sour soup cabbage soup is simmering on the stove.

Canadians celebrate Easter dinner much like Americans. Many have a traditional turkey dinner. Some opt for ham and scalloped potatoes. A few have lamb.

I always thought the traditional turkey dinner was somewhat redundant for Easter, since the last time most families got together for a meal was Christmas. I have only cooked Easter dinner once or twice, but one year I did the turkey dinner with a lighter twist. Lots of salads and a variety of salsas to accompany the bird instead of mashed potatoes with gravy and cranberry sauce. Dessert was really different. I put a chocolate bunny into a single-serving fondue pot surrounded by cubed pound cake, bananas, pineapple, and strawberries. Then everyone lit their tea light and watched their bunny melt before dipping into the fondue. That was a real hit.

So....what's on your Easter-dinner menu tonight?

Exclamation My Child Mocks ME!

Hey Gemma & Murray:

Where are YOU? Running from impending flames? We've had a busy year. Lots of travel. "Burning" up a lot of "banked" vacation days, but isn't that what they are for?

OK, too many meals to cover, but here are some from the recent past (and a little background info, so indulge me!).

Not too long ago, my youngest daughter sent me an e-mail (w/ pictures) stating her "fantastic" attempt at making ratatouille for dinner, and posted it on facebook b/c she found "humor" in my posting's on Airforums. I thought it was great. However...., in that e-mail she mentioned "I've always thought it was strange & funny that you, dad, would post what you make for dinner on the internet....." (guess she just didn't understand - and forgive her she is only 20). Well, I countered w/ marinated grilled pork chops, grilled herb veggies from the garden rice pilaf and "craisins" in an apple boat" and a reduced dipping sauce. She said said she was a better cook and would counter my dinner w/ something better. Well I'm still waiting, however she is half-way through getting her BSRN (and taking a full course this summer), so I'm still waiting! While waiting, and just to taunt her, I made GRILLED bacon wrapped chicken breasts - stuffed with ham, pepper jack cheese and a little rosemary (FRESH from my private reserve here at the house!). Served with steamed fresh zucchini from the garden and a grilled baked potato with onion and garlic. Also had my own dipping sauce recipe of honey, BBQ sauce, Dijon mustard and secret ingredients! For dessert, from scratch - crock pot chocolate cake w/ vanilla ice cream drizzled with dark choc. syrup and topped with a fresh strawberry (oh, where is the scratch choc. cake...., uh...., um..., well it really didn't turn out. It really tasted nasty, ergo left it out). Well the pictures sort of loaded in reverse order - sorry.

Hate that the Pier 29 Embarcadero burned down. While growing up in CA, we went to the bay area from Sonoma, passed, stopped, played there, too many times. What a shame.

Regards, Terry.

OK, for dinner tonight we had: "Turkey Carcass Soup"! What a comfort dinner on a night when our temps are dipping below freezing. Obviously, it wasn't a formal affair, we used our favorite Salvation Army soup bowls, and jelly glasses for milk.

Enjoy!

Turkey Tetrazzini, our traditional, post-Thanksgiving turkey-user-upper.

6 cups Homemade white sauce, using lowfat milk and chicken or turkey stock
1box spaghetti, cooked
1lb sliced mushrooms, sliced and sautéed
3-4 cups cut up turkey
Couple of large handfuls freshly grated parmigiana reggiana

Mix some of the cheese in with pasta, mushrooms, turkey and sauce, rest on top. Bake 20-30 minutes at 375 degrees.

Kids of all ages love this. Serve with a green veggie or salad.

(Turkey carcass soup is tomorrow night)

Comfort food

We enjoyed meatloaf - comfort food if there ever was one. We substituted steamed carrots for traditional mashed potatoes and added asparagus for color. Yum!

As we finished I thought that might be a good menu for winter camping. Perhaps we'll try that later.

This thread needed to be bumped.

I know I post a lot of vegetarian stuff, but still like to out on a good BLT, chop, or rib, especially if it's done Southern style.

Sweet Tea is a big Southern thing - experimented with Sweet Tea Pork Chops. The Sweet Tea Sauce was really unique - I liked it a lot!

If anyone wants the recipe, let me know! It's a really easy recipe for the road.

You're messin' with one of our National icons.

"Kraft Dinner is considered a Canadian national dish. Canadians purchase 1.7 million of the 7 million boxes sold globally each week.They eat an average of 3.2 boxes of Kraft Dinner each year, 55% more than Americans. The meal is the most popular grocery item in the country, where 'Kraft Dinner' has iconic status and has become a generic trademark of sorts for macaroni and cheese. For most teenagers it is the first thing they learn to cook on their own, and becomes an easy and inexpensive food for young people living away from home for the first time. It is often simply referred to by its initials K.D. As it carries a different name in Canada than the United States and other markets, the Canadian marketing and advertising platform is a made-in-Canada effort as US advertising cannot be easily adapted.

Pundit Rex Murphy has written that 'Kraft Dinner revolves in that all-but-unobtainable orbit of the Tim Hortons doughnut and the A&W Teen Burger. It is one of that great trinity of quick digestibles that have been enrolled as genuine Canadian cultural icons.' Douglas Coupland has written that 'cheese plays a weirdly large dietary role in the lives of Canadians, who have a more intimate and intense relationship with Kraft food products than the citizens of any other country.'

Former Prime Minister Paul Martin regularly referred to it as his favourite food, though also confessed that he was unable to prepare it. During the same election current Prime Minister Stephen Harper stated that 'I'll never be able to give my kids a billion-dollar company, but Laureen and I are saving for their education. And I have actually cooked them Kraft Dinner — I like to add wieners.....'"
