I'm swooning over that plate, Lisa.  Simply gorgeous!
 
I had Costco pizza.

I came here to post a bunch of pictures of what we've been eating, but now even though I'm stuffed, I want that plate, Lisa! That looks amazing.
 
However, what we've had (I'm visiting family, so not all of this was today):
Ham, asparagus and pasta casserole

 
Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

 
Garlic Soup

 
Coconut Slice and Bake Cookies

 
Coconut Meringues

 
I still want Lisa's dinner.

Come on down!  Columbus isn't that far from Grand Rapids!  Your dishes look wonderful too.  Geeze, I haven't made garlic soup in a long time.

This afternoon I made a container of BBQ Rub. I rubbed it on some sirloin pork chops and  let them sit in the fridge for 3 hours. Onto the smoker they went for an hour, followed by a coat of Sweet Baby Ray's BBQ sauce and then back in the smoker for another 20 minutes. I served it with a simple green salad and a baked potato. 

 

 
I almost broke down and sent a message to lleechef to find out how she made the ones a few days ago here that looked so beautiful and delicious, but figured then I'd just be upset since I knew it wouldn't look or taste as good as hers. They were ok.

I dunno, Ed, they look pretty darn good to me!!!!
I didn't smoke mine since we don't have a smoker.  Just brushed them with olive oil, put salt and pepper, and onto the Weber.  Easy peasy.  They were good because the meat was good, certainly nothing special I did.

Went to an Eagles club for corned beef and cabbage with potatoes and carrots hidden underneath.  Looks dry in the photo, but wasn't. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Looks great, love2bake. So---Tommy's Joynt for St. Patrick's Day Corned Beef and Cabbage, followed by at a stop at the Buena Vista for an Irish Coffee? Or a visit to Lefty O'Douls for the Corned Beef and Cabbage----I had theirs once and it was very good. So were their cocktails--I bet their Irish Coffees are good, plus I had several nice glasses of Jameson's Irish Whiskey and they were nice, generous pours. Slainte!

Ed - That sounds like a great plan, I must say, and we are having outstanding weather--unusual on St. Patrick's Day!  I'll probably go during the week sometime, instead, to avoid the crowds. 
 
When I want to pig out on comfort food I go to Harry's Hofbrau in Redwood City, just a couple of miles from home.

Felix - I'd love those coconut cookies.  Mmmm...

Lisa, Michael's name is Li'l piggy too!!! Who would have thunk.....The Halibut looks wonderful.
 
L2b, the corned beef looks good, a few beers and a Irish song should follow that meal. Maybe some of Filex's Coconut Meringues after dinner........
 
Ed, I can't wait until your other half comes home, she's going to wonder how you gained 10lbs in two weeks while she was gone.

'Twas a Shamrock Shake for breakfast.
 
What you see in the photo was $8.99 a pound at Bristol Farms.
 
I O'Cheated.
 
Ed, It was a real shaker this time.  A major jolt and then shaking for several seconds.  At least I wasn't sitting on top of this one.  This one had the scare factor.

 i know. i was at a hotel in Simi Valley and was sitting next to a window and both the window and I shook sharply. I knew it was a real one and guessed somewhere nearby. The fact that it was near you makes an even bigger shocker----when i went out in the hall, people said "did you feel that"'. You were around 50 miles away I'd guess.

So we were ready to drive down to Torrance.  had driven from Ventura to Valenica the morning of  the Northridge earthquake---a 45 minute drive stretched out to 5 hours. The radio already had said the epicenter was where you put it and that traffic was a mess. Oh, it was a fun drive through the Sepulveda Pass! Not as bad as that fateful day that Northridge hit, but certainly worse than normal.

The Northridge Quake was a thing of Terror.  My store was in Sherman Oaks and I live in Marina del Rey.  A simple trip of 16 miles, door to door.  For two weeks after the quake it was a minimum 2 to 3 hour drive.  The canyons didn't help.
 
I lost a third of my store merchandise in the Northridge Quake.  The building lost some of its front windows, all the ceiling lighting, acoustic squares and the roof had to be redone.  I was able to get an SBA loan because businesses didn't qualify for FEMA loans.  The buildings on each end of my block were destroyed and had to be torn down.  I was right in the middle of it.  Had I been in the store when it hit, I might not have made it.
 
The sidewalk in front of my store was destroyed and it took the city or state over 2 years to repair.
 
The Northridge Quake is why the smaller shakers now scare me.  I know what can happen.

I was working at Sony Pictures at the time. I almost moved my boat to MDR so I could use it as an "apartment" because from Valencia, my commute turned into 5 hours each way. On my way back that morning from Ventura, I wound up being detoured off SR126 down to the SR118 freeway in Moorpark. I went down the 118 until I hit an area where the freeway had 6 inch and larger gaps and then got off, taking Rinaldi across. At Balboa blvd. I felt the heat as I made it through this intersection, which became famous for this photo.

 
I could feel the blast of heat as I went by. Since the news said the 5 had collapsed, I knew I needed to take San Fernando/The Old Road back. I was told it was blocked off due to landslides but braved it anyways, going past the barricade and finally making it home. I walked in, to find my ex sitting around the fireplace, toasting marshmallows with the kids. Only one crack in our walls but friends two miles away lost a brand new 2-story home. We were out of power for 3 days, but fortunately still had gas and lots of candles and camping lights, so just pulled stuff out of the upright freezer. My commute, which I made with my next-door neighbor, was a nightmare though for months.

Great picture!  WOW!
 
My electricity was only off the first day.  I also lost just a few tchatskas (sp???) at home.
 
The gas in my condo was off for 5 days until I noticed my neighbor leaving one morning looking perfectly showered.  I asked her how she could stand the cold showers.  She looked at me like I was crazy.  She didn't lose the gas in her house.  Either did any of my other neighbors except for the one who TURNED MINE OFF.  She had already had hers turned back on.  I didn't wait for the gas company.  I turned mine back on and lit all my pilots on my own.  She could at least have told me she turned mine off! 

I did a lot of grilling that week.  I had to drive to Torrance to find charcoal.

That is an amazing photo.  Last time I saw water on fire was when the Cuyahoga River in beautiful downtown Cleveland caught fire!  We used to get earthquakes all the time in Anchorage.  The biggest shaker I experienced was 6.0.  Everybody just kept on going like it was no big deal.

Holy cow!  That looks like a Hollywood set or something--especially with the old car.  I think I see Bruce Willis in the background!!!
 
Alaska had the worst ever quake in the 1960s, wasn't it--like 9.0 or something?  I saw pics in National Geographic.  Unbelievable.
 
Dinner will be leftovers--either Saturday's corned beef or today's omelet.

The most powerful earthquake in the US and 2nd in the world happened in Alaska on March 27, 1964.  It was Good Friday.  It was a magnitude 9.2.  All of Anchorage crumbled, Seward and Valdez were swallowed up by the following tsunami.

I can't take credit for it. I remembered the pic from when the earthquake happened----it was on all the media. AP or LA Times photog probably. Now I would have been REALLY impressed if the photographer had taken the picture the moment I went through the intersection. I could feel the heat from the flame and drove so fast I think I had a rooster tail behind me!
