pnwchef, 
That chicken pie looks awesome.
mar52,
Those almost look like candied bananas to me. But it sounds like I better not try them!

Ed, they were a very dense, hard flour based concoction.  Sort of like those sweet balls in an Indian restaurant but more like a hockey puck in density and taste... not that I've ever tasted a hockey puck.

Ed, nothing like Baseball, hot dogs, apple pie and Trout!
 
I love baked Ziti, it's fast and easy to make, gives me a nice meal when I'm craving Italian. I bet Rogo thought I was going to say I missed him!

I told the guy I would take him anywhere he wanted to go (with the exception of the ohmygod expensive seafood place or Ruth's Chris) for his birthday.
 
He chose Applebee's. I ate Applebee's for dinner. Their food has not improved since I was last there in 2002, and they still have no idea how to cook a rare steak. I did thoroughly enjoy several frosty glasses of IPA from Perrin Brewing, however. I was pleasantly surprised to see beer from one of the local breweries on tap.

To cleanse my palate...
 
Mother's Day dinner, total of 20.6 g carbohydrate per plate. HA! Balsamic pork chops, roasted asparagus with balsamic, and broccoli salad.

I had a chicken pot pie from Linn's in Cambria. California.
 
Bought four individual, frozen pies and drove them home for dinner.
 
Haven't found finer.

I was so busy cooking I didn't take any pics of Mother's Day dinner.  We had Caprese salad, gnocchi in Bolognaise sauce, hot sausage, Mancini's bread (from Pittsburgh) and per my Mother's request.........pecan pie for dessert.

You can't believe my delight when I saw Shish*to Peppers on the hors d'oeuvres tables at my niece's wedding.  She wouldn't share the menu with anyone.  She had know idea I even knew about them, silly girl.
 
So I went to the nearby Mitsuwa Marketplace to do a little shopping today.  I ate dessert first tonight which consisted of Mango Mochi.
 
For dinner....
 
I forgot the Asahi.

I haven't been to Linn's. Sounds like it's worth a stop on my next trip up that way.

More and more of the sushi bars and izakayas (Japanese pubs) are putting grilled shisitos on the menu. The are absolutely delicious grilled over wood or charcoal with a little char on them.

Busy day so I just wanted to make us a simple dinner. Market had a nice NY Prime Strip Steaks on sale, so I bought ready to cook stuffed scallops, fresh corn on the cob and ready to heat creamed asiago spinach. I fired up the smoker, put everything in over red oak, and this is what came out.

 
I had never done the scallops in the smoker before and they came out really good, along with a nice, smoky medium rare steak.
Oh yes, I also got French Salted Caramel Ice Cream for dessert. It may have not been Graeter's, but it hit the spot!

Awww man, Mar!!  That looks so good. 
 
Last night was salmon from my stovetop smoker:

 
And tonight was a Belgian style waffle with caramel sauce and a little salt from the Waffle Roost food truck.  So good.

Taken on a sudden chill here in Indiana. Cold and wet. Ruined my plans for a day at the track as they prepare for the Indy 500. So think I will make some real SOS tonight. Breakfast for Dinner.

I wanted to mask something really different today for dinner. I bought some veal scallops and pounded/tenderized them. I then looked for an old recipe I used to make, couldn't find it but found an updated version from John Bersh. So here it is, Creole Grillades and Grits a la John Besh (with a Creole Essence Seasoning from Emeril's recipe). A nice Creole Sauce from fresh garlic, onions, tomatoes and celery. And butter plus chicken fat! Beef broth and more Creole Seasoning....yum!
 

Yummo!
 
Cheese grits with two cheeses turned out good too!

Re:What's For Dinner TONIGHT...??? 2014/05/16 00:45:23 (permalink)
Ed, that looks fabulous.
 
I joined an ex-neighbor for a meal at a Persian restaurant in Mission Viejo.
 
    HATAM
    25800 Jeronimo Rd
    Ste 402
    Mission Viejo, CA 92691

    I'd only been to one other Persian restaurant in Westwood which left a lot to be desired.  Because my friend is Persian I didn't hesitate at his suggestion.
When we sat down a plate of Tahdiq was brought to us covered with a lentil and lamb sauce.  Nothing better than that crispy layer of hard Basmati goodness.  I could have dined just on that. 
 
It was followed by a small cup of a lentil tomato soup.  Wish it was a large bowl.
 
I ordered what Masoud ordered...  grilled Cornish Game Hen that was accompanied by a grilled tomato and Safron Basmati rice which I sprinkled liberally with Sumac.
 
The chicken was bone in and cut up and served sort of like a kabob without the skewer.
 
Moist, juicy and excellent.  This certainly changed my impression of Persian Food.
 
I did not take any pictures because there was a large group of mourning Persians that were there after a funeral.  THAT was different.

Mar,
I know that restaurant. The pho place we go to is right across on the other side of Alicia. It's a mile from me.

Ed, you should try it.  I was surprised.
 
We originally were meeting Masoud at Antonucci's but it wasn't open until 4PM so he suggested Hatam.
 
I had the #35 lunch.

That's hilarious!!!  
 
I had a tri-tip sandwich at the ballpark, with just a smidgen of grilled onions and bbq sauce.  Moist and tender and very tasty.

Last night I threw a bunch of random stuff in a skillet (red, orange and yellow bell peppers, Vidalia onion, celery, garlic, ham, orange-lemon-pepper seasoning), and added some cottage cheese on the side.
 

 
Tonight I'm hitting the pizza place around the corner from the arena after the game (Griffins-Stars series tied 2-2 going in).
 
Edit:
I have lied. Tonight we're hitting Stella's (http://www.stellasgr.com/) across the street for one of their ohmygod amazing bacon and bleu cheese stuffed burgers after the game. Gastric nirvana, won't have to eat again tomorrow.

I will, Mar. We always go to the Afghani place in town because we really like that, but I'll try Hatam.
