The McSheets were yanked from me earlier in the week...during a cookie debacle.

So just disposable baking sheets.

Lucky I wasn't blindfolded.

I had a picnic all by myself in my back yard. Half a crab-stuffed cucumber, olive salad, shrimp salad, and cottage cheese. With a huge glass of sweet tea.

Those cookies look perfect.  I'd make more than three.

Thank you!

The recipe called for 3 per sheet. I made a few more batches after those behaved so well.

It was a very detailed Bouchon Bakery recipe. By hand it was somwhat of a cookie miracle. For me...at least.

Maybe with a mixer they'll spread out more.

Here's my inspiration. The cookie I had from Bouchon Bakery in Las Vegas...




They look different but the flavor was spot-on Bouchon!

I was sober when I baked the cookies. I'll leave it at that.

That does look really good!
 
I had perhaps a beer too many last night, so lunch (being my first meal of the day) was cream of tomato soup and a cheese and bacon sandwich fried in the bacon grease.

The eggplant was a coaching lesson for my nephew. He's very talented and a quick study.

After that we celebrated victory!




Mark celebrated with the popular Roadfood beer...




I stayed on the Italian theme with a few bottles of Zardetto Prosecco.



Just enough to promise I'd make homemade ricotta impastata for a cannoli lesson.

Veritas also has a cool Ozbar wine dispensing system. I'm amazed to find this in Tehachapi...

I LOVE that Tangerine beer! Or anything from Lost Coast, really. Can't get it here, but I'm working with my local liquor store so hopefully it'll happen.

I remember you posting that beer during your trip to Tahoe!

That was the first time he had it....and he loves it!

That looks great.  One of my favorite lunches!! 
But do you call that a grilled cheese with bacon or a toasted cheese with bacon????

I couldn't decide, so I didn't call it either one.
 
CC, I found a place I can order the Tangerine Wheat online, but it's $14.99 + shipping per 6-pack. " />

I never made a (whatever you call it) cheese sandwich using bacon fat. I'm gonna do that for lunch tomorrow. I just bought bacon to go with polenta for breakfast.


Yikes! That's crazy expensive! I had a taste of his beer ...and it really is delicious!

I'll see if they carry the entire line...and keep sampling...while I'm here.

I hadn't done it before, either...but since I'd just fried the bacon I figured what the heck. It was excellent.
 
Yeah, I'm not paying that for beer no matter how much I love it. The grocery store near my friend's house in Tahoe sells it for $6.99/6 pack. If they've got it, I'm a huge fan of their Alley Cat Amber and Raspberry Brown.
 
I forgot to eat lunch today.

Couldn't decide between melted American and melted Chipotle White Cheddar on my bacon-egg-cheese English muffin sandwiches, so I did one of each. Because I can.

CC - Mom always referred to that kind of meal (same color scheme) as a Helen Keller Meal.  She hated when she discovered that everything she made was the same color, she would purposely go back in the kitchen and steam broccoli so at least there was another color on the plate.  I miss meals at her house.

Haha, Cajun--I notice that kind of stuff, too, when I either make it or pick up food at a buffet.  I also notice when everything on the plate is round, which happens on occasion.

With rollatini it's mostly about adapting a procedure from the standard eggplant parmigiana way.

Uniform thin slices. I salt & soak the eggplant in milk. Many people will say it's not necessary...but that's the way it has always been done. . I wouldn't dare change anything.and it always works out with great flavor & texture...easy to roll...neat & tidy.

I fry the eggplant in grapeseed oil. It goes in the oven without any sauce. I paint it with a little pepperoni oil to give it a little flavor boost and keep it becoming dry.

Cheese for the filling is drained ricotta & pecorino romano (no mozzarella in the filling) topped with (when at home) fresh mozzarella parmigiano reggiano & a little shredded provolone. I build with a restrained amount of sauce @ time of assembly. Back in the oven with sauce...and to melt ( not brown) the cheese.

My mom called that lunch the SPF 50 special.

I moved on to earth tones this week.

Roast beef with gravy & fries...



My mom had a patty melt and declared me strange because I never had a patty melt...



She has some nerve.

The other day I visited Edwards AFB (yes CC does indeed have credentials) and visited the commissary & some cool retired aircraft...





They had Twinkies but I don't like Twinkies...



I like these...







This SR-71 Blackbird could get me home in about an hour...





I believe I can fly...



While there I had a big honkin' sandwich @ Arby's & some chips...

Yay! FINALLY I get to enjoy one of my Santa Maria-style tri-tip sandwiches...



Delightful!

Some <<<Hoboken>>> bread & fresh mozzarella would make it "Tippy the Italian"... a powerful force on the sandwich board.
