His wrestling is the best thing that ever happened to him.  He loves it     He had 6 matches and 6 wins today.  Four of them were pins.  This skinny scrawny kid is a real champ!

That's fantastic. It's great that his father got him started in wrestling.
 
By the way, how was tonight's Cooking Society dinner?
 
My dinner tonight was a simple cheesesteak.

    The dinner was outstanding...........a little delay as the girls turned the oven to the right temperture but neglected to turn the oven on! So we transferred the the ham loaf to a glass baking dish and did it in the microwave.  I could not believe how well it turned out.  I intend to use the microwave for meat loaves from now on when time is short!

      Great. And thanks for mentioning meat loaf. I haven't made one in a long time. Ground beef and pork just went on my shopping list.

        I'm staying with my mother for a few days.....doctor appointments, etc. so I am making her favorite meal, gnocchi Bolognaise.  Plus a green salad with plenty of marinated artichokes and some garlic bread.  Easy dinner.  I offered to make bracciole with the gnocchi but she said no.  Smells like la cucina Italiana in this house.

            Grilled THICK NY steaks last night...yummy
             
            I have grilled chicken thighs on the menu for tonight...
             
            But...right now (at 1:oo PM) according to my new weather station it's 37*...20 mph winds, and a wind chill of 27*...so I might have to cook indoors tonight...there's a VERY cold blast of cold air coming down from the Gulf Of Alaska associated with a breakdown of the high pressure area that has been dominating the eastern Pacific Ocean...and a very strong cold front is headed our way...so far the peak winds for today is 37 mph...we've not had the rain we usually get, and...
             
            We need to make like a tomato and catch up...

                Seasoned read to roast Chicken with fresh vegetables.

                After Roasting at 400 degree for about 1 hr and 20 min

                The Roasted vegetables are tossed with olive oil, paprika,cajun sea, granulated garlic, parsley,salt and pepper. I used yellow onions that were pretty hot, after roasting they were melt in your mouth sweet. The roasted cabbage was tender, the potatoes hot a nice crust and the carrot were really sweet. This has to be one of my favorite Sunday afternoon dinners............ pnwc

                    PNWChef:  The roast chicken and veggies sure do look good to me.  You gave me a very good idea.

                          That chicken and those livers look wonderful.
                           
                           
                          My meal as eaten at Killer Shrimp in Marina del Rey:
                           
                          Began with grilled Caesar salad.  It was cold. I wasn't sure if it would be hot from the grill.  It was put there for just seconds to give the outer layer a grilled taste. What you see is half as they split orders prior to serving.


                          There were eight of us.  We ordered one small casserole of macaroni and lobster. The waiter suggested two for the table and I'm glad we didn't listen. Not bad, just not real good. I didn't know what to expect here, either. The pasta was a little too al dente for me, the sauce too creamy and I don't know why, but the lobster was a little bit fishy.



                          For $10 you could add a lobster tail to your meal.



                          The reason for going to Killer Shrimp....

                            
                          Killer Shrimp is wonderful. They're in a rich broth that is spicy hot and loaded with rosemary and other spices. It comes with French bread to sop up the broth.
                           
                          So, that's what I had for dinner.

                            I made two large pans of shepherd's pie over the weekend.  Kids came over and had some and I'll finish it up tonight.

                              Tonight was salsa chicken with kidney beans. I also threw in a can of red beans, because I could.

                                      Very cold and windy today with more snow later on, so I'm making spicy Thai noodle soup tonight. Might make it hot pot style if I can find a good deal on beef.

                                          BackRhodes, that was a special meal.
                                          Last night's dinner was at
                                           
                                          www.theboilingcrab.com
                                           
                                          I learned that a friend had died right before leaving for dinner so I was very out of sorts.
                                           
                                          There were ten of us at dinner and for the table we had 2 orders of Dungeness Crab, 2 orders of snow crab, 2 orders of Alaska King Crab (my favorite) and 2 orders of peel and eat shrimp.
                                           
                                          The crab is ordered by order and charged per pound.
                                          Shrimp is also by the pound.
                                           
                                          With our order we each had a cob of corn, we shared 2 baskets of fries (one Cajun, one sweet potato), my mother had a cup of gumbo and there were drinks involved.
                                           
                                          The tables are covered with a sort of waxed paper and the food brought to the table in plastic bags.  You dig in to them and make a total mess out of everything.
                                           
                                          I don't like touching my food, but this is an exception.
                                           
                                          Total bill for 10 people, tax and tip included...
                                           
                                          $233.00   Not bad for what we got.
                                           
                                          The spice we chose was a combination of everything in the medium heat range.  Nice and spicy, heavy on celery salt which was pronounced and delightfully delicious.
                                           
                                          The restaurant is missing out.  They should be selling bread to sop up all the good deliciousness.
                                           
                                          For my Texas friends,...  
                                          There is one of these in Texas near Dallas/Richardson. I highly recommend it.
                                           
                                          It's my favorite restaurant.

                                            We are having  Ruby pasta, a giant meatball, and green salad and garlic bread.


                                            Where'd you get the Ruby pasta? I haven't found any of that in a long time.

                                              Tonight I made some mayonnaise tilapia (yeah, it sounds weird, but it's really pretty good...sprinkle lemon pepper on the fillets, sprinkle some dried dill, spread with mayonnaise, and then sprinkle a Cajun blend seasoning. Bake at 350F for 20-25 minutes.). Served with sides of broccoli and cauliflower.

                                                Sounds good and easy... something to try.
                                                 
                                                I opened up a jar of marinated artichoke bottoms and diced one up, roasted and peeled a red pepper and smashed and pitted a few Kalamata Olives.  I sauteed all of that with some shallots and made myself an omelet that I ate with a low fat, flour tortilla.

                                                  I need a camera.
                                                  Wednesday I made 15 bean soup in the 7 quart crockpot. Started with the bagged beans, added a couple of smoked ham hocks, some onions, tomatoes, spinach, carrots, and garlic.
                                                  By last night every last drop had been eaten. I served it with some storebought soft rye. (actually  the 2 day old stuff for 99 cents a loaf..) I'm nothing if not frugal.

                                                    Seasoned read to roast Chicken with fresh vegetables.

                                                    After Roasting at 400 degree for about 1 hr and 20 min

                                                    The Roasted vegetables are tossed with olive oil, paprika,cajun sea, granulated garlic, parsley,salt and pepper. I used yellow onions that were pretty hot, after roasting they were melt in your mouth sweet. The roasted cabbage was tender, the potatoes hot a nice crust and the carrot were really sweet. This has to be one of my favorite Sunday afternoon dinners............ pnwc

                                                            I just upload the pictures to Photobucket to post here, and it resizes them so I don't have to. Just move them from my phone to my computer, upload and go. The camera in my phone is 8MP...my actual camera is 2.5MP.  Although I think the size here might have something to do with the forum...the pictures are smaller here than they are on other forums, and also smaller than they show in the preview pane.
                                                             
                                                            The recipe I use definitely requires a crock pot. I made it in the oven once, but the sauce does NOT play well with that kind of heat. I almost had to throw away my 9x13 glass casserole dish because the sauce welded itself to the sides. My crock pot is from about 1985...according to the sticker on the bottom it's 180 watts on low and 250 watts on high.
