What's for Dinner #323 - The Labor Day Edition!

Didn't go on Sunday. Thunderstorms Sunday and Duran's death on Saturday put a damper on my spirit.

I like it. Have you ever done a duck in the Ronco?

Spaghetti and meatballs tonight. Deb will pull some of her house-made sauce from the coolerator, the pasta will come from a box. The meatballs are a mix of pork, veal and beef. Deb ground the beef the other day, made the mix, seasoned and browned the meatballs and, well, they all became a little flat. I guess the mix was a tad too moist. So,

Supper tonight will be spaghetti and flat tire meatballs. The flat tires smell great so no harm, no foul. House red will be on the counter.

But I bet he sounds like "mao".

Plausible deniability goes a long way when explaining stuff to the neighbors.

It works.

An aside: My parents had a friend with a log cabin on a lake. Lenny had a Siamese named Mao who would sit on top of the partially opened kitchen door and ambush me every time I came in. Guerrilla warfare.

This guy has the air of trouble about him, especially with his mask and eyes.

I'd name him either Mao or Fidel.

Pleasure. My godfather was a real piece of work. Tall and always well dressed, he knew every bar, club and restaurant in Manhattan. He and my father would tell the wives they were taking the little guy (me) out for a walk. Somehow we always ended up at a place like "21". Go figure.

Too kind.

Lobster, like duck, is the dish that keeps on giving. There are carcasses and stock in the freezer. Nothing goes to waste.

Super dinner, great link!

My godfather fought in that war, knew Miller and was obsessed(!) with the music of the time. He passed that appreciation on to me.

Hi c,

There is some mayo in there but not much. I did liberally brush the toasted rolls with melted butter.

Dinner was simple and sweet: lobster rolls, garden tomatoes, cole slaw. Beer and wine on the counter, NCIS on the plasma (Deb insists).

The California board has quite a few Mendocino threads.

That's a beautiful part of the country. The drive up 1 is fantastic. You'll have a great time.

Yeah, what rox said.

This is skirt steak so it's thin and not equipped to deal with high heat (no fat to render).

I place the meat in an oblong, ceramic container, cover with foil and put it in the toaster oven at 300 degrees. I'll check it after 10 minutes. I'm not looking to cook it. Rather, I want to heat it to my satisfaction. I'll peek after ten and make adjustments as necessary.

It's a natural.

Reheated skirt steak, fresh corn on the cob tonight. Maybe some house red to wash things down. Temps have been dropping lately and the sun insists on going down before I'm ready. Bummer. No rain on the horizon.

Sunday up at Lime Rock Park is my traditional end-of-summer treat. Lots of good cars to see, lots of good people to meet. Leftover lobster parts from Friday will find their way into rolls come Sunday night.

ETA: How to Marry a Millionaire (TCM) will be on the plasma.

Any idea why my computer freezes every time I look around chowhound?

I've noticed this, too. I use two iPads, one is an Air and the other is the last generation. Both run the current level of the operating system and Safari. The issue for me is getting bounced out of the Chow site. I've experienced this when trying to respond to a post, when trying to "heart" a post, when viewing a photo on a post. It's annoying.

Ad serving is also an issue. The screen bounces up and down when I try to click on a link, leading to an unintended click. This pisses me off. It's sloppy programming.

Big fan of Jasper White. He's a Jersey boy, too.

Stealth and speed are key when dining with a group. Diversions can be helpful.
