Santa, if we'd have had a fridge and not been flying out the next day I'd have wrestled you for some of those leftovers. That was some excellent food! Thank whoever the friends were who told you about for me would you?

He's a lacto vegetarian. We havent cut the dairy out of his diet yet. We're thinking about it though. My husband was a meat eater but became a vegetarian when he married me out of respect for me. (not at my request but his own decision) My son's only 4 and he really likes his yogurt and string cheese.

My meal wasnt vegan today. I had vegetable Korma which is a creamy veggie dish but it was worth slipping off the wagon!

Megan, that looked so good. I am quite a good vegetarian, but cheese and icecream own me, so they won't let me be a vegan.

Like Friday, I don't remember what it all was, but it was all danged good -- from the duck with the to-die-for crispy skin...

To the dish with the lovely cashews, chicken and veggies. Santa picked a great place! Glad you enjoyed it all the next day, too, Santa.

Those white things with the duck were dumpling kinda things that you're supposed to put that brown sauce on, and the duck. It was all so good, and filling. And yet somehow we still had room for gellato!

Ha ha ha. They are geoducks Ruby (pronounced gooey ducks) and they are large clams that grow on the beaches of the Pacific Northwest. They were actually live in a large tank at the restaurant along with tanks of lobsters, fish and other briney critters awaiting hungry diners at the restaurant. They mostly only grind the neck (the penis-y part) for chowders and the like because it's pretty tough. The body is supposed to be tender and delicious but I can't quite get past the neck.

Yeah, most of the guys stood there looking at the tank, likely fascinated... Those things creep me out!

Thankyou so much Friday, for explaining about these geoducks. I have never even heard of these before! I have just spent an hour googling geoduck information and now would rather like to try some sashimi style! I think Id rather have the tender body part than the tough ground penisy bit!

Default Marietta Diner

We were in Atlanta this past weekend and had lunch Sunday at the Marietta Diner. Those people believe in portions. Sorry this is so out of focus. (I suck at photography..lol) I took a bite (or three) before I thought to take a picture. 'Twas yummy!



This is their Chicken San Francisco. I wasn't too sure about the flavor combo, but it worked. It's two large chicken breasts stuffed with crab, covered in grilled asparagus and melted mozzarella. The grilled veggies and crab stuffed mushroom (huge mushroom) were fabu.

And for dessert........







Heavenly White Chocolate Raspberry Mousse Cake. This was soooo good! And huge....did I mention these people believe in portions?

One of my favorite things about the NAAFA Convention is staying an extra day, and socializing with the others who do the same. It is such a nice relaxed atmosphere, and a good chance to spend quality time with folks.

On Sunday night a bunch of us went to a seafood restaurant called Nick's Fishmarket. I think the general consensus was very favorable. I am pickier than most, and found it to be..."eh".

Here's most of the gang, I've edited out the most elusive of us


Back row: Patty, Jay (Mango), Lisa. Front: Me, Vic and...??

And here's what we ate.

Appetizers


Clams Casino - pretty good actually. For me, the best bite of the night. Elusive, errr...I mean Evil Princess and I shared these.



Vic got the crabcake but he shared with us!



Mango got Oysters Rockefeller (that's hollandaise sauce and spinach)



Closeup of the 'feller



Lobster Bisque. I didn't love it. That's a crouton, not lobster floating there.



Here is Patty's salad with shrimp.

Entrees are next...

Entrees


Both Vic and Lisa got the salmon. It looked great and I tasted it - not bad!



EP got the abalone. Again, a taste revealed that it was pretty good!



At first they told us there were only 2 Maine lobsters left. After some negotiation, we concluded that Mango should have one (since Maine lobster is a novelty for him) and I should have the other (we all know why). However, they came back and said they made a mistake. There was only 1. Since I can get Maine lobster more readily than he can, I thought Mango should have the lobster. He got his roasted with corn and...um...stuff. Sorry but this looks yukky to me. I am a purist! btw, it was a 2.5 lb lobster.



I got the Alaskan King Crab and I added an Australian lobster tail to the plate (I thought it was appropriate!). The crab was pretty bad, and the tail was so so. That's garlic mashed potatoes, if I recall correctly.



Here is a close up of the tail. Looks good, I know!

We didn't get a pic of Patty's Seafood Mixed Grill. It looked great.

Next...dessert!

Dessert

Hoooooray for Patty. When we had the lobster issue (when they were wrong about having 2 left) Patty said "So you'll comp us dessert to make up for it, right?" She was teasing (mostly) but...

After dinner they told us they had put together something special for us!



Four lovely desserts for us to share.



Assorted cookies and strawberries.



A blueberry mousse bomb - that's a white chocolate crown.



I think this was a mocha bomb. It was the best of the bunch. The bowl was made of sugar, and the ice cream was white chocolate ice cream. Very yummy. They gave us 2 of these!



A close-up.

The waitstaff was a hoot, and a fun time was had by all! Thanks to EP for contributing some of the above pics!

This makes an absolutely HUGE portion of crab cakes, you can make 12 normal sized ones or 6 huge ones. Its yummy.


3 lbs fresh lump crabmeat (or an equal amount of canned lump crabmeat)
1/2 c sour cream
3 tbsp oats (regular or quick-cooking)
3 tbsp bread crumbs (I use seasoned)
1 1/2 tsp Old Bay Seasoning
1 tsp dried oregano or ¼ cup fresh oregano
1/2 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp extra-virgin olive oil
1 large or 2 small garlic cloves, minced really really fine (or grate them)
Couple of scallions – chopped really fine


Preheat oven to 400.

In a bowl, combine the crabmeat, sour cream, oats, breadcrumbs, mustard, old bay, oregano and pepper. Fold them all together, being careful not to smoosh your crabmeat.

Form your crab cakes to whatever size you want.. I usually make 12 1” thick cakes. Heat your oil in a large OVEN PROOF skillet. Saute cakes 2-3 mins a side until “golden brown and delicious.” Then pop ‘em in the oven for 20 mins until cooked through.


(I got this recipe from Robin Miller on the Food network, but she doesn’t put garlic or scallions in hers, and she puts Dijon mustard.. I don’t like it… so its her recipe but I doctored it to my tastes. I like it my way better.)

OMG SVS, that all looks great!! I can't rep you again yet, I tried!! I havent tasted most of those things before but just by looking Id have gone for the Clams Casino, the Abalone (with an Australian Lobster tail if thats allowed!) and the blueberry bombe since I've never had a blue dessert and it looks so Star Trekky! What was bad about your Alaskan King Crab and did you only get those two long leggish looking bits?

Any time I see a thread like this I HAVE to choose what I would have, I even do it any time I look at menus even online! Does anyone else do this?

OMG TWO chicken breasts?? That portion looks giganticus. Did you actually manage to eat it all? Well done if you did! And that cake , mmmm! Did it really have a raspberry flavour and is that pureed raspberry on the outside edge? We don't really have cakes like that here, it looks yum!

In a bowl, combine the crabmeat, sour cream, oats, breadcrumbs, mustard, old bay, oregano and pepper. Fold them all together, being careful not to smoosh your crabmeat.

Form your crab cakes to whatever size you want.. I usually make 12 1” thick cakes. Heat your oil in a large OVEN PROOF skillet. Saute cakes 2-3 mins a side until “golden brown and delicious.” Then pop ‘em in the oven for 20 mins until cooked through.


(I got this recipe from Robin Miller on the Food network, but she doesn’t put garlic or scallions in hers, and she puts Dijon mustard.. I don’t like it… so its her recipe but I doctored it to my tastes. I like it my way better.)

Wow, Melina, that sounds really good! I wish I had 3 pounds of fresh crabmeat! I do have a can of really good stuff in the fridge, so maybe I will make a smaller batch..sooo tempted!

What was bad about your Alaskan King Crab and did you only get those two long leggish looking bits?

Any time I see a thread like this I HAVE to choose what I would have, I even do it any time I look at menus even online! Does anyone else do this?
I love that you do that. I do it with menus! I do so love little games like that. (and yes, you could add the Australian tail to any entree).

And about my dinner - there were 3 crab legs, and they tasted freezer-old and fishy The tail was ok, a little chewy. The crab would have been $50 for a portion so I opted for a "half portion" which was $25 and to add the tail...another $25! So it wasn't cheap. I still am shaking my head at the $25 tiny tail. lol At least the crab came with bread and veggies and potatoes for that $25.

I know, I should just shut up about the price. And if everything had been delicious? I wouldn't have given it a thought.

Hi Randi and EP,
Thanks for sharing the foodee pics from Nick's Fishmarket. Thanks for the link to the restaurant, too. You take some really great photography of food. The close-ups of the mocha and mouse bombs looked so real...like I could reach through the screen and take a bite. You are right, the mocha bomb was the best. My tastebuds are having a flashback. Yummmm.
BTW, that pic of Mango's dish is kinda scarey. I was sitting there and kept looking at his plate and trying to figure out what the heck was what. They threw in the kitchen sink on that one. LOL
Thanks again,
Lisa
