Beef Kabobs - Shrimp poached in Zatarains - Baked Potatoes - Salad
 
The weather is awful again - rain and extremely humid and warm.  More nasty weather to our west headed to us overnight and into tomorrow.  After we endure this we should have a couple of good weather days - Thanksgiving Day & Friday and then it's starts all over again.

    I slept through dinner yesterday, but stuffed myself with sushi again for lunch so it worked out. I had a spicy shrimp roll, a California roll, and a mango roll with a bowl of miso soup.

      A slight change in plans, but...Turkey breast with gravy, green bean casserole, oat dressing, biscuits, sweet & sour red cabbage, sweet potatoes, and pineapple and mandarin orange dessert.

            Back to work, so dinner will be a burger and fries basket from the concession stand IF I have time to run down before the game starts. Otherwise, leftovers when I finally make it home after the game.

                    Rodeo Burger at Calico's Cafe in Garberville tonight...
                     
                    It's a bacon-cheese burger with bbq sauce... about 1/3 pound on a large bun...(I usually add a few splashes of Tobasco just for fun)...
                     
                    The important thing here are the fries...I finally have the cook staff trained to cook crispy fries, so when a ticket goes back with "crispy fries" written on it they know it's me, and that I won't abide wimpy fries and / or massacred spuds...
                     
                    In this rural area burgers are commonly $7 to $8, and most of the small towns in this area don't have that many selection(s) so Garberville is a mini oasis in that you can get Mexican, American, Seafood, Steaks, and Burgers from several places in Garberville and Redway...
                     
                    Further north on Hwy 101 Fortuna is the next place with wide selections...
                     
                    But now I'm craving chocolate...I shoulda stopped at the market on my way home...

                      I roasted some ridiculously thick boneless pork chops rubbed with the last of my Tuscan seasoning from last summer's farmer's market. Served with beets and roasted sweet potatoes (wrap in foil just like regular bakers, serve with butter, salt, pepper and a touch of nutmeg).

                        I might make some pea soup and bean soup tomorrow with the Thanksgiving ham bones.

                          They are predicting a measurable amount of snow for the morning. Tonight it is:
                           
                          Pollo El Charro at the local Mexican place
                           
                          Grilled chicken with grilled shrimp and mushrooms in a chipotle cheese sauce over rice and beans
                           
                          and a
                           
                          bananananana Chimichanga for dessert.

                                  Last night I had an appetizer dinner they created for me at one of the bars across the street from the theatre. All on one plate, deep fried calimari (with tentacles) with marinara (it practically melts in your mouth...they're really good at it), crab cakes with more crabmeat than filler with roasted red pepper aioli, and pan-seared sashimi tuna with wasabi remoulade. Served with foccacia toast points, diced red onion and diced tomato.

                                    Got a good deal on some country style pork ribs, so going to sear and roast a couple of them and finish with some salsa verde, with sides of fresh green beans sauteed in olive oil and garlic, and a baked potato.
                                    I'm also really jonesing for some apple pie, so if I'm not too tired when I leave work I'm going to pick up the ingredients and that'll be dessert.

                                        Got too busy last night to eat before going to work, and at 2am the options are limited. Ended up with Steak & Shake. Which should be OK to tell you, since it's been a featured restaurant on the front page even though it's a FF chain.

                                            I had CFS (Chicken Fried Steak) at Henny Penny tonight (Us Hwy 101 at Gobbi exit in Ukiah, CA)...
                                             
                                            Average...they slothered gravy on top of the CFS so it didn't have much crunch to it...Milkshake was good but average...
                                             
                                            They could've used a 2nd waitress, but the owner gave me personal service (he tries hard)...
                                             
                                            The unique thing about this place is the west wall...it's a solarium type wall with water cascading down the outside surface...nice and cool in the hot summer, and nice to see the low afternoon sunset through...it's a fountain pump, a feed line at the top, and rain gutter on the bottem of the windows, and water circulates...
                                             
                                            This is a patio environment with trees growing inside, whereas the main dining room is the original building...
                                             

                                             

                                             
                                            Here you can see the sheets of water as they start their downward journey...

                                            I was thinking of a French Dip or a Noo Yawk Steak but went for the CFS instead...
                                             
                                            Average, but I'll go back there again (open until 10:oo PM)

                                                I think tonight is a Big Fat Cheeseburger and real beer battered onion rings.

                                                  Last night's dinner because I couldn't post here last night:
                                                   
                                                  I've been waiting patiently for Nichols, the diner across the street from where I live to re-open.  They've been remodeling for the past few months.
                                                   
                                                  They re-opened Tuesday as J.Nichol's Kitchen and I had dinner there tonight.
                                                   
                                                  Although I'll miss the chicken pot pie that is no longer on the menu.....  I love the new menu!
                                                   
                                                  My dinner tonight was a strange combination of foods.  I couldn't make up my mind and ordered three different items.
                                                   
                                                  Mussels!  These were an apetizer for $14 and they were plump, sweet and OMG Good!  They were black mussels in a tomato, chili arbol broth that was so good I asked if I could get a container for it.  (I just finished turning it in to MARhattan Clam Chowder for my mother)
                                                   
                                                  I didn't order a main dish, but two sides.  I was totally influenced by what the girls at the next table were eating.  There was something that was served in a good sized individual caserole and it had my name on it.  Without finding it on the menu, I asked the waitress what it was.  5 cheese white macaroni and cheese.  (Redundat) I had to have it!
                                                   
                                                  Then totally out of character I ordered a side dish of vegetables.  Roasted Brussel Sprouts in a maple bacon glaze.  They were fantastic!
                                                   
                                                  It was a bit pricey for one meal, but I'll be back there as soon as I can.  I must try the other menu items.  I'll also take my camera with me the next time.
                                                   
                                                  Being totally new, they had all new serving dishes and I was impressed!  I'll just have to take pictures.  Much easier than explaining them.
                                                   
                                                  Fourth day of operation and the service was efficient and the food was incredibly good.
                                                   
                                                  At one point in the meal, the manager came over and introduced himself.
                                                   
                                                  What a smooth operation. 
                                                   
                                                  Nichols was always good, but J. Nichol's Kitchen is top notch!

                                                      I've never heard of mango roll.  Interesting.
                                                      That looks yummy!

                                                        I'd never heard of mango rolls either, and I wasn't convinced at first. But as soon as I tried a piece of one I was hooked. It's like dessert sushi, if that makes any sense. And they're surprisingly good when dipped in the soy sauce-wasabi mixture.
