On the weekends we do a late lunch/early dinner. After a walk along the Columbia river with the dogs, my little girl on a Scooter and my wife., it was time to get cooking. They had asparagus on sale for .99 cents a lb, those are prices when its in season, so it looked and sounded great. I made Chicken Bearnaise, with rice and asparagus. The Bearnaise sauce goes great with chicken and also topped on the asparagus. .................pnwc

pnwchef - that's one good looking dinner - I wish we could get in on some .99 asparagus - I bought some today for 1.99 lb.  I'm going to grill it tomorrow night along with a 2" ribeye and some bacon wrapped potatoes.
 
Tonight I've got a small pork sirloin roast grilling and some potatoes and onions wrapped in foil on the grill.  That and a salad will be dinner in about 30 minutes.

Wow...I really, really want some of that tri-tip!!!
 
Tonight I did crab-stuffed chicken, roasted asparagus with balsamic vinegar, and leftover sweet and sour carrots. I'm not well yet, but at least my voice is back and I can sort-of taste food again!

These meals look wonderful.  Mine wasn't so great.
 
Dinah's in Culver City, California has been there for many years.  They're famous for their chicken, so I ordered the chicken plate which was smaller than the chicken dinner.
 
Not the best friend chicken I have had.  Edible describes it best except for the parts that were too salty.
 
The creamed spinach was like paste with big hunks of bacon in it as well as too much nutmeg, because I could really taste it.  That said, I loved the spinach.
 
The carrots were sweet like sugar and I bet sucrose was somewhere in the recipe.   Also good.
 
They start you off with a nondescript dinner roll, a slice of banana bread and soup or salad with crackers.  I had the salad which was great.  They make their own French Dressing which might not be like any other French I've had, but I also like it.
 

 
Too bad that the food that made them famous is failing.

Par for the course in my world...tried to broil some pork chops. Broiler element in the oven has a short and quit halfway through, so ended up frying them. Burned them, because it's been about a hundred years since I've fried pork chops. Forgot to microwave the frozen broccoli. Left the lima beans on the burner for so long they kinda became mush. But hey...all of that meant dinner was so late we couldn't make it to the evening visitation for my aunt, so I guess it's like a win.

That french toast looks really tasty, mar!
 
I made cod with basil sauce, served with French green beans (canned) and mixed vegetables in cheese sauce (frozen).
 

 
Note to self: frozen cod fillets do NOT stay together when thawed and fried.

I want to get in to fish.  I'm the only one at home that likes salmon which I used to plank grill for lunch at my store.
 
I looked at what was available the other day and the prices were crazy!  $23 a pound for halibut and swordfish.  Then there were some filets of some fish I never heard of that were reasonable... but what were they?  I forget the name.
 
Maybe I'll try again on my next visit.  I like fish.

BackRhodes, I'd be delighted! I've got the perfect bottle of petit syrah to go with it..
 
mar, right now is the best time to try different fish...not sure why the halibut and swordfish were so expensive, but everything should be on sale for Lent. This week tilapia is on sale here two pounds for $7.00 (granted, they're frozen fillets, but you can't be too picky when you live in the middle of the country). If it was up to me, we'd eat fish 2-3 times a week. I've got a million recipes, all of them diabetic-friendly.
 
What were the ones you weren't familiar with? I might know...not everything is available here, but I get around.

I am betting it was either tilapia or swai that Mar hadn't heard of.

It looked nice.  Two filets for $7.

I had a few Salmon Filets in the freezer, I flaked off the meat and made them into Salmon patties with a Remoulade sauce.

 
Mar, good looking French Toast.

Chicken cacciatore over spaghetti, salad, and French bread.  It's strawberry season, and for dessert from Pat Conroy's cookbook, I made his mother-in-law's pound cake which will serve with sliced strawberries over, and whipped cream.

pnwchef, would you mind sharing your Remoulade sauce recipe? I can't seem to find one I like.
 
Tonight I'm having a cheeseburger with Cajun Power garlic sauce and pickles. Probably end up filling in with some chips and cheese at the bar later on (we make them with Doritos, because we can).

Bill, those look outstanding!  I'd also like the recipe.
 
I was foolish and thought I could go in the kitchen and fry up some onions and potatoes for later tonight.
 
Our very early suppers were...
 
 
Chorizo, potatoes, onions and eggs for me.
 
 
Fried eggs and bacon for Sharon.

Excellent, thanks! I'll play around with the amounts. I think it's the Tony Chachere I've been missing.

I got lazy, plus I had some ground beef defrosted. So...Zatarain's Dirty Rice. It's serviceable food, especially when you add some onion and green pepper to the meat and some Cajun Power garlic sauce to the finished product.

Mar...for best results, back away a little but more, it will look a bit sharper...you can always crop the image with photoshop, or (MS) Paint (comes with every copy of Windows...look in the ACCESSORIES section of All Programs)...that is a fixed focus lens that struggles at any distance closer than 2.5 ~3 feet...
 
Now you can take photo's when eating out...just as if this is the twenty first century...
 
I've sometimes forgotten to take my pocket camera out of my car, and actually have it in my pocket...and I've missed a few opportunities to snap a photo of a plate of good grub...and it's way too late once my plate is empty...

Sourdough garlic bread toasted on the grill
 
Tri-tip with red pepper flakes on the fat side...cooked fat side up over indirect heat...
 
Chocolate fudge for dessert...

WOW, it's 72 degrees in my part of Washington State, knocked off a nice plate of Spaghetti and meatballs with garli bread. I'm sitting here with a full belly and my wife comes over and says, we need walk off this meal. Time for a  walk with the dogs along the Columbia river.............
