Grilled Alaskan sockeye salmon on braised/creamed leeks which is a classic French dish.  But it's one of those dishes I kind of "forgot" about.  Saumon aux poireaux.  With sautéed spinach and creamer potatoes.

It was good. No. The fact is, it was one of the finest things I've ever eaten in my life. I am not a very young man. I have been around for a long time. And I have eaten on several continents. This dish was absolutely amazing.

lleechef: I love that dish. My father taught me how to make it 50 years ago. I still make it when we can get good salmon, or I catch one when fishing at Lake Tahoe. I never knew it was a French dish. Tonight was loin lamb chops, potatoes sauted in lamb fat, wild rice, ceaear salad with raw egg and anchovies w/a semi decent Merlot.

When I lived in France fish was SO EXPENSIVE.   I occasionally splurged and made this dish with salmon steaks.  But leeks were plentiful.  As were cream and butter..  The combination of the leeks and salmon just "worked"!

Tonight we had pot roast.  It was cool and rainy/pouring all day.  It's one of MH's favorites.

I made a zucchini fudge cake for dessert.

As much as I hate to have to say it, lleechef's pot roast is actually better than mine.
 Oh, and the cake (mine is without the nuts) is terrific.

Tunisian-Style chicken thighs (meh, not a keeper), creamy cucumber and radish salad (definite keeper!), and cottage cheese.

No pictures from last night, but tacos made with corn tortillas, chicken thighs marinated in a Korean BBQ sauce, Mexican salsa, cotija cheese and lettuce.

The plate wasn't upside down and the dinner was about as right-side-up as you can get. Fantastic.

Lisa, I'd appreciate it if you packed that properly and overnighted it to me.  My type of comfort food at its best!

For dinner yesterday we stopped at South of the Border.  I'd never been to one.
 
Probably won't go again unless forced.
 
What is with Texas putting cumin/comino into everything?  The chips are made with cumin.  The salsa is overdosed with cumin.  The enchilada sauce is full of cumin.  Seems that they overload everything with it.
 
A pinch is fine.  A cup is not.

Last night was thick cut boneless ribeye, with garden fresh green beans, onions and new potatoes.  With baby shoe peg white corn.
 
Tonight's menu is more of my salmon deal from the other day and probably wild rice with more green beans and corn.
 
 
My salmon deal.  Krogers usually has it at about the $13/lb price point.  Last week it went on sale for $7/lb price point, a good deal.  However the fish monger at the store was on vacation and his replacement did the ordering, and ALL that wonderful FRESH salmon arrived 10 days before the sale started.    They had 3 pound slab filets, use of freeze by date was a day out.  So they marked the packs with $5 price stickers, I thought that is a good deal I will get some.  As i looked at the price sticker again, the $5 was for the PACK not the pound.  I got 12 lbs of fresh salmon for $20.
 
I took it home and grilled and poached some, and the rest i vacuum packed and froze for later use.  I wish he would do the ordering more often.  Or at least do that to those nice ribeyes I have been getting form there.

Yes! I have no idea where mine came from, either, but it's also my favourite fork.

Once a year, Giant Eagle has FRESH, never frozen, 16-20 Gulf shrimp.  We found them today.  So we're having peel 'n eat shrimp with cocktail sauce heavy on the horseradish and a little Tabasco.

I had a medium filet with a sweet potato. 
 
I'm getting better.  This is the second time ordering medium.  I used to be a medium well girl.

Bacon, bacon and more bacon for dinner. Tasting a delicious beef short rib with jalapeño sauce and bacon at the Big Bite Bacon Fest. 

 
The competition judges, from left to right, Rahm Fama from TV Food Networks's "Meat and Potatoes", Jean from LAist, and EdSails. A lot of bacon today and all delicious!

Foodbme,
Close, the judges were sequestered in the engine control room on the Queen Mary.
Lisa,
A cute little pork belly slider.

I do not know what is up with my local Krogers.  They usually have NICE 2" thick well marbled, angus ribeyes.  The last month (since the new meat dept mgr came there) the ribeyes have looked anemic, 1/2" thick and ALL weighing less than 7oz.  I have asked the new guy what's up, but he is clueless, he must be kin to the store mgr because when I complained to him....  NADA!
 
I am craving a nice THICK ribeye.

I went to my favorite local Mexican market. They had just made some fresh chorizo. I bought a roll, fresh grated city cheese and some other goodies.

I made a favorite dish that I had not made in years---chilaquiles con chorizo.

 
Muy bueno!
