Well had to take a client to dinner tonight. Client recommended the restaurant...Coat and Tie...could not wear motorcycle jacket :) Four folks, $535 bill and wait for it....food sucked, snoody waiters who were pretty sure I was blessed to be in their presence. Came home and ate the ms.s cooking. Nearly starved on cute food.

I have never enjoyed a meal when my attire was dictated by the venue. Might change my mind when they pay me to eat in their dining room.

With the coating, they stay very moist, as long as you moderate the cooking time.

I'm curious as to what this restaurant's specialty is; steak house, seafood, or just generally upscale and pretentious? I ask because I used to be on the receiving side of this sort of thing, i.e., being the client, and had numerous meals in Dallas and Houston. I never had anything short of excellent in terms of service and food.

 

As for what's cooking, last night's menu consisted of chicken gumbo with andouille sausage. Yea baby! :)

This is what would happen if I ever tried extending my "cooking" beyond slicing a tomato:

Well, you could always roast some hot dogs.....

I have ventured into Indian cuisine the past two weeks. Have prepared asparagus sambhar,chettinad lamb kulambu, and chettinad chicken kulambu. All were quite good. Took a fair amount of slicing, dicing, and organization, but not technically difficult. Got the recipes from "Healthy South Indian Cooking" latest edition. Awful lot of vegetarian dishes. I'm confident I can adapt them to carnivorous dining.

You should consider a career change, possibly head chef at your own restaurant! :thumbsup: Or, maybe, ;) a firefighter up here in Tewksbury. :grin:

Thanks. I think we're going to try this soon.

 

Keith! Sweet Sassy Molassie! Those all look wonderful! :thumbsup: I'm hungry now, but don't think anything I'll round up can be as satisfying now that I see your handy work!

 

And to think I burn Kool Aide!
