I ate lunch today at 4:30, after returning from grocery shopping, so I am counting it as dinner. I was going to take pics...probably should have. It all looked and tasted SOOO good!

(ETA - OK, I've added some pics. Looked way better in person. I used to be good at food pics!)



I had 8 gigantic fresh shrimp, perfectly cooked, spritzed with lemon and dunked in cocktail sauce that was very heavy on the horseradish.

And cherry tomatoes on the vine that tasted like peak-season flavorful tomatoes (like Jes was describing recently).



And corn on the cob - fresh, fat kernels, very yummy. I used far too much butter (is there such a thing?) and ground sea salt and fresh cracked pepper.




And a wonderful custard/cheese danish. There was a very thick layer of creamy custard covering the danish, and topping the custard was some sweet cream cheese filling, that kept the custard safe below. Never had anything like it. Damn. Yum.



I am a happy girl right now.

And I am so ready for summer. Now that I've had a taste of it. (Watermelon to follow later this evening!)

This really neat diner opened recently near me. It is retro - but has a "Jetsons" futuristic feel to it too. The food is way more upscale than you would expect in a diner.

My roomie, Nancy, and I went there today. I got an appetizer of Prince Edward Island mussels in a white wine herb garlic butter sauce. There were about 2 dozen smallish mussels, and the sauce was so good I finished it with a spoon, when I ran out of hot breadsticks that I'd been using to soak it up!

My entree was "Caribbean Dusted Sea Scallops with island cous cous and an orange Curacao sauce". My expectations were low - but I was VERY impressed. There were 10 very large seared sea scallops surrounding a large ring-molded disk of couscous which was studded with almonds and bits of peppers and other veggies. The scallops sat on a really lovely sauce which surrounded the coucous. I was afraid it would be too sweet but it was only slightly sweet. I love this dish.

I wish I'd brought my camera!

We stopped at their bakery counter and picked up some goodies. I got a individual-sized raspberry mousse cake, lemon meringue pie, and chocolate velvet cake. Plus a large chocolate fudge cookie loaded with white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts.

We went out tonight too, Texas Roadhouse. Sirloin Tips with rice and a loaded sweet potato. Sweet tea with splenda. No dessert since the sweet potato had mini marshmallows and caramel sauce on it. I was bad.

So, I love to cook, and I love to cook italian.

Tonight I made home made pizza.

Recipe for you all:

Lavosh Bread (flat square bread, avaliable at Trader Joes)

Drizzel a small amount of extra virgin olive oil and spread around the bread

sprinkle with a light amount of sea salt (doesnt have the iodine tast like regular salt)

Spread a light amount of tomato bruschetta over the bread (home made or you can get a really good jar at TJ's)

Sprinkle with Motzarella mixed with sun dried tomatos and basil (from TJ's) or just use plain motzarella.

Layer on shreded parmissan cheese (not the sprinkled stuff)

Lightly sprinkle (flick) crumbled goat chese randomly over the bread.

Finely chop FRESH Basil up and generously sprinkle.

Add Choped olives, diced onions(pre cut ones are great for this) and for the finishing touch get some proscutto and finly chop it up and sprinkle it over the pizza..

bake for about 15 minutes at 400..

Tonight I made turkey burgers coated in sage, parsley, basil, sage, garlic, white pepper, Lawry's seasoned pepper (love that), and a wee bit of salt. I seared them in a little olive oil. They browed so they look like beef, but didn't taste like beef at all.

They needed something, like cranberry sauce...so I served it with apple sauce (which was all I had). Also sauted some fresh spinach in the pan which I had deglazed with a little butter.

Also steamed up the rest of the corn.

Now I am seriously in need of dessert. But I don't have anything good. Wah!

Again, sorry for the icky pic. I need a food stylist (or I need to pay closer attention.)
