It's Friday, 02/06/2007...What Are You Eating This Weekend?

#1 Post by Bill Tex Landreth » February 6th, 2009, 8:34 am

Tonight--Dinner with the Boyz. I think it involves a pork belly.

Tomorrow--I am flying solo, so who knows.

Sunday--TBD
It's not easy being drunk all the time. Everyone would be doing it if it were easy.

It's important that she get more one-on-one time with me as she's growing up, pretty soon she's not going to WANT to do anything with me LOL
Agreed...just no desire to do it at Stonebriar.

Yeah, it's weird how girls just LOVE this place - that's got to be why they stay in business. I don't know what it is, as the food all sucks, but you can't keep women from going there as their first choice every time.

It's almost 2am here. I just got back from an 8 course dinner by a young chef who works at Taillevent (I believe I posted on another dinner by him I had a couple of weeks ago). Had 5 different wines with the meal. Will post on the food and wine in a day or two, I'm getting sleepy.

I have no idea but some sort of carcass will be consumed.. Perhaps cooked on cast iron.

Maybe pick up a skirt steak...

still in the decision making process.

hmmm.. pulled pork might be good but that takes 12 hours to make..

Wow, so much planning! I guess I still live by my old ways of waiting till all offers are in - and choosing the best.

However, in my dreamlife I have the time to sit and plan a once a week dinner party with all my favorite people.

Can't wait!

Hmmm, lets see.

I just had some instant coco here at the club lounge.

Probably will be some trail mix once I hit DEN.

Running a 100 temp right now. So, I guess I will have a chance to break the new toaster in during the weekend.

Feel better Leslie. TWS (traveling while sick) is at least 7x worse than being sick at home. :(

Maybe there is something to your girls love it theory. While it's not my first choice, when I get to the 'burbs, I love this place. They have a spicy chicken with cashews dish that I get every time I go. That's less than once a year, but I think of the place fondly. Wonder why that is.

You only accept offers? You dont make offers to your friends and other potentially interesting people?

We have a weekly habit of pizza.
It was a total find when we discovered that the little hole in the wall pizza joint 3 blocks from us made the best pie in town and possibly the best I've had in Jersey in many a year.

The standard pie for us is sauteed broccoli rabe and garlic. I judge pie by 3 catagories: crust, sauce, and quality of toppings. This place make a crust more than good enough to eat on it's own.

Enough of that.

Tonight I work late, so the ladyfish is on her own.

Sunday will be warm here, so I will be grilling fish, hopefully tuna if Weggies has loin that I find satisfactory.

Tonight's dinner will be Spanish-style lamb stew with rice. We'll probably drink a Rioja or Priorat.
cheers,

Cooked brunch today for seven friends. Lots of store bought stuff to keep it simpe, but homemade baked french toast and spinach and cheese dip.

Now, I'll make butternut squash soup if I can find the energy.

Last night was Chick-Fil-A sandwich, waffle fries, and lemonade.

Tonight is a 20oz Prime Rib-Eye and duck fat roasted red skinned Yukon Gold potatoes. Wine will be the 2007 St. Cosme CdR.

Those look quite rocking John.

Changed my mind on the way over to the market.
Last night~Soy and lemon glazed grilled Salmon filets, stir-fried Savoy cabbage and shiitake mushrooms, roasted Yukon Gold potato chips.
