Savory Oatmeal

So, in my head- I'm calling this stuff Ris0ato. You know, because of the oats- and I'm thinking I'm pretty clever- That maybe I'll start a trend using the new name.... So finally I get around to googling it to see if by some fluke, someone else was also clever. Darn It! Apparently "Risoato' is not only being bandies about- it's actually being SOLD in a restaurant NYC.

Savory Oatmeal

And here I thought i was some kind of culinary freak- good to know there are others. I am dropping the "freak" and adding "Renegade"!
Renegade Style- (a term soon to be copyrighted)
#1 Just butter salt and pepper
#2 With a tempered egg mixed in
#3 Anything you'd toss in a pilaf or risotto or an omelette- works in oatmeal!

ITALIAN BEEF - THE TRUE CHICAGO FOOD

Dear Doogie-
First- Bring a bib- or a tee-shirt you can wear that you don't care about then:

Belly up to the bar- and say beef juicy plus sweet-hot on the side. And if they have it- Large Italian ice Lemon.

Bring a camera- You'll want to record the moment

ITALIAN BEEF - THE TRUE CHICAGO FOOD

Johnnie's also opened a place in Arlington Height- About 400 yds South of Golf Rd. on Arlington Heights Rd. It took over a defunct Mr Beef (I think) and it's open 7 days a week- More places to sit than the original- cleaner- and I hate to say this- More consistenly good- The last two trips to Elmwood Pk yielded stringy chewy beef... It Broke My Heart If you're serious about wanting beef take the Metra train to Arlington Heights station- (Not Arlington PK) catch a taxi and go south on Arlington heights road about..3 miles TRUST ME... IT IS WORTH THE EFFORT
