I had dinner in two phases, I guess. Met up with a friend from out of town before he got in a cab for the airport. We tried a little wine/tapas bar and splitted some pretty good stuff: grilled scallops, shrimp ceviche with garlic/tomato rubbed toasted bread, fried calamaris, some kind of imperial roll but with duck confit, fried fish with curry sauce. Really good stuff. The wine was excellent, too. We then went in fine food market so he could grab some good local/artisanal cheeses and pâtés, whereas I grabbed my meal's second phase: a panini with ham, pastrami, strong hungarian salami, swiss cheese, red oinions and dijon mustard. It was okay.

I had a wonderful meal tonight that includes one of my staples that, everytime I enjoy it, I'm pleased at how easy it is to make simple, delicious, healthy foods. Diced tomatoes, cucumbers (or any other vegetable you have on hand), on a bed of baby spinach, with a can of tuna on top, lightly drizzled with a very healthy organic salad dressing called Breanna's "Special Request" Lemon Herb. On the side today, after practically licking the screen reading the Buffalo Mozz. thread, and being fortuitiously close to this Amish Market and its lauded cheese section, I enjoyed fresh mozzarella and tomatoes with extra virgin olive oil, sea salt, and black pepper. And I couldn't resist two sweet impulse buys near the register: a healthy dried fruit mix and milk chocolate covered raisins. The raisins are great. They tase better than Raisinets.

I can't stand Chipotle food. My gf loves it for some reason.

Nothing spectacular, but it is what it is: whole wheat pasta (noodle-shaped, sort of) in olive oil with basil, rosemary and cracked pepper. I forgot to warm the olive oil first, and I used too much, but it is still edible.

Gnocchi with the Bolonese sauce I made last night with a glass of Pinot Noir.

Tonight, we have some nice boneless/skinless chicken breasts we just picked up from a local poultry farmer. I plan to scallopini them first, then stuff them with some artisnal blue cheese, shallots, and bacon crumbles. I will then do an egg wash and coat them in panko, wrap a bacon strip around the outside, and saute them in EVOO. I'll finish them in the oven and I have a nice ver blanc sauce to finish them with. For sides, steamed broc and sauteed mushrooms. We have a Merry Edwards 2004 Chard chilling.

I posted it in another thread, but last night's dessert is below. Home made bread pudding, including home made bread, a bourbon/butter sauce, and a pear vodka martini.

I believe the owners are from Turkey, which means they may have a very good olive bar too.

The bread pudding looks great. An unusual choice choice of a digestif though . What was the aperitif, if I may ask?

I'm afraid the only apertif was sipping our chard while I made the entree

Went to a wedding last night. Good food--- started with a salad of spinach and candied pecans with strawberries. Also a light strawberry vinaigrette.
Then it was a very nice hazelnut-crusted haddock. Cooked very well, but pretty flavorless. Almost no seasoning or herbs. I hate eating fish like that, even though it was cooked well.
Dessert was obviously wedding cake. Best wedding cake I've ever had. Pretty good night!

And tonight it's just pizza and poker and beer.

Tonight had a roasted chicken. English peas, orange beets, and a Chablis Vaudesir.

The chicken was a nice discovery. After a little web surfing, found a farm that has pastured (not "free range") chickens. Diet of grasses and bugs, no corn, no soy. A very tasty bird, and worth the very special price it commanded when you add Fedex into the deal.
