    So weird, my experience with Green Zebra was pretty bad. I used a groupon (which may be strike one, I haven't spoken to any foodservice people honestly about the negative effects of a groupon are, but I can only imagine), and I also have a particular palate which basically means I don't eat eggs. We ended up ordering a slurry of things and somehow of the 4 or 5 dishes we got, 3 or 4 of them were deep fried. It was good, but anything deepfried is good and I feel like it's like excessive oak in a wine - a good cover for bad quality.

    Anyway, I made a special dinner for the GF yesterday which was garlic and basil gnochi in a homemade meat sauce (sauteed bell peppers, onions, and spices), a toasted cheese sandwich that was a pretzel roll cut up with a guyere melted atop, add truffle oil, spices and basil (definitely the highlight), and to round it out was a sliced chicken breast with all american vegetables and mashed potatoes. Paired with my favorite cheap wine of all time - Rendition Zin. Unfortunately, after such a meal, she proceeded to pass out.

    Rabbit loin grilled over cherry wood, rabbit rilette, and braised red cabbage.

    Followed by freshly spun vanilla bean ice cream and apricots stewed in sauternes. [​IMG]

    This was lunch not dinner but I don't want to start a new thread. Sherman, Texas, birthplace of Buck Owens, about 15 miles south of the Red River. The OO Smokehouse. This place was totally legit - deeply smokey and flavorful chopped brisket. The beans and slaw were also pretty damned good. I was dressed like an iGent - I thought they might make me for a ghey but I think they just thought I was rich. [​IMG][​IMG]

    I ate noodles in an "aromatic broth." I think that's the least disagreeable term in the culinary lexicon. It's the equivalent of "ice cold beer."
