What's for Dinner #314 - Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon Edition

JanineL, Hi...

Your memory is good and that is indeed the play we went to last night.

What's for Dinner #314 - Lazing on a Sunny Afternoon Edition

Chowhound luminary GretchenS posted the details of some fabulous sounding Pork Kimchee burgers that she made and I am going to try recreating those tonight for dinner. After dinner we are meeting some friends at an outdoor theater to watch the play Sylvia. I saw it several years ago but definitely do not mind seeing it again (especially outside on a beautiful summer night with a glass of wine in hand). I highly recommend the play especially if you are a dog lover.

That sounds like a fantastic selection of great food. Have fun with your friends at the lake cabin.

Harters, you are correct and I apologize for typing Friday. It seems like a Friday because I have to take off from work tomorrow (Friday) to travel to a family funeral on Saturday. Any time I take off on a Friday, Thursday just seems like a Friday.

Roxlet and LindaWhit recommended your post so obviously you were not wrong to correct me and ask a question you already knew the answer to. Hopefully you will not be attending the funeral of a family member this weekend and will enjoy yourself.

schrutefarms, I am not sure why you replied to me (RE: Fowler) but that is all good to know and I mentioned nothing to the contrary.

>>>Its hard to help people that won't even try<<<

Unless the OP changed her post after I read it for the first time she clearly stated in her last sentence "we've tried".

Would carbonara work for you and your boyfriend? My little Nephew is an incredibly picky eater and even he will shovel my carbonara into his mouth and like it.

We are having a rare and greatly appreciated Friday night at home and without guests. WFD are tequila and lime marinated grilled halibut steaks, a Thai inspired cabbage salad/slaw and some popcorn later as we watch Cary Grant and Grace Kelly in the classic movie "To Catch a Thief".

I hope everyone enjoys their weekend.

Hi fldhkybnva, Happy anniversary to you and Shiitake. Did you buy a special hat for him to wear for the occasion? :-) I remember that Birthday hat.

I have never had store bought venison but have wild venison about once every couple of weeks. I'm not sure if the farm that sells the store bought venison "fattens them up" but wild venison is incredibly lean and you would want to error on the side of underdone. You can literally over cook it in a minute. I'm guessing if they called them "medallions" they mean cuts from backstrap and those are best cooked on the rare side of medium-rare.

Any fun plans for your week of vacation?

That sounds great Gio and I especially like that snow pea side dish. I am going to try that soon. Tamari is one of my secret ingredients in many dishes.

Some guacamole for an appetizer then grilled Sea Bass with a pineapple, corn and red pepper relish served over some buttered basmati rice. Probably some Häagen-Dazs coffee ice cream for dessert if we are not too full.

Great advice as always. Thanks.

That makes sense because Oregon is a cooler climate and Pinot Gris would tend to grow well there.

Thanks for the advice, Berheenia.

You know what...that raises a good idea nsxtasy. Maybe taking city streets would be the way to go because there are so many good places to stop if one took streets from Billy Mitchell to West Allis instead of 94 or 894. National Avenue alone would satisfy most people and that goes right into West Allis.

I think that is an excellent idea, Gio. I actually would prefer the napa cabbage to the spinach in that dish.

I like Pinot Gris as well when I have had it in restaurants but my wine knowledge is definitely lacking and it seems that any time I pick out a bottle of Pinot Gris from a wine shop it turns out disappointing.

On the other hand, I know if I open a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand or better yet Bordeaux I know it will be excellent.

If you could recommend some Pinot Gris to look for I would certainly appreciate it.

It totally depends upon which route you are taking from the airport (I am assuming you are flying through Billy Mitchell and not one of the other airports) to West Allis. If you take the bypass, for example, you would be no where near the Public Market or anywhere else in that area.

We had such an insanely long winter here that I still have asparagus growing. Tonight we are having another couple over for dinner and I am making an asparagus frittata with a sriracha and goat cheese sauce. I am leaning towards a Sauvignon Blanc for the wine.

zackly, the information in that link obviously does not take into consideration food allergies or even some of the most basic dietary issues many people have.

But like you said, "Good luck!"

If the producers at the Food Network were smart, they would contract Berheenia to do a show. That would be a fantastic show of home-run cooking ideas.

You should post a picture of Shiitake in his stocking while poking his head out looking around for the Festivus pole. That would be cute and funny.

Blue Marlin arrives today at the seafood store so I am going to pick up two of those steaks and marinate them in garlic, lemon juice, parsley, Greek extra virgin olive oil and Sauvignon blanc wine then grill them.

I have no ideas for sides so any ideas would be appreciated!

How horrible! :-( :-( I will not be one of those goofs on the board that says, " Oh I know how it feels".

I do not know how it feels but I think what you are going through must be terrible. nothingswrong. I wish you the best and hope things improve for you and things work out with the powerball.
