Thanks for the comment, but, the downside is that I have to sweat keeping the gut under control.

Reasonable is defined as being able to tear apart a T-Rex with your bare hands and not break sweat (or so they would have us believe). That means one follows the simple rule, eat well - work out hard. Since I am not into working out it is a serious exercise in self discipline, something I would really rather ignore but, what the hell... So, chow down Hogs!

DZGirl,
Thanks to you also for the kind words. Someday I hope I will be able to call myself a gourmet, but if I'm not careful I'm liable to turn into a gourmand!
Dad and I were supposed to be in the UK this week to determine if it would be practical for me to begin taking over his practice in the EU over the next couple of years. That has been pushed back for a few days but when we get there we are planning to have dinner at Rule's on Maiden Lane. That is one of my favorite restaurants and I am looking forward to Irish Rock Oysters on the half shell, smoked breast of phesant with pear chutney, medallions of vennison in a port wine glaze over braised root veg, and a steamed pudding with double cream. Afterwards we go to the Crusting Pipe in Covent Garden and have aged stilton with vintage port and then back to Dad's club for black coffee, cognac, and a good cigar. I prefer Hoyo de Monterays and he likes Bolivars. This is always a high point of a trip to London when Dad is there.

Ah, the price of good food.

After your second post, now I have a craving for oysters.

It's beef stew tonight, but I don't think the mister realizes he's the one that's gotta' cook it.

Trying to decide what to do for left over as is so damn HOT in KC.

Cold Salmon, Lemon, or Left over Ham and Beans, Corn Bread slathered with Oleo!

Are You just BSing?
Tom,
No BS! Both Mom and Dad are serious foodies and raised us to appreciate good chow. My sister is a really great cook and even my brother and I are not bad in the kitchen. We figure it takes very little extra effort and not much more expense to enjoy seriously good meals, so we go for it.
Suggestion for your salmon, which I see you eat fairly often. Poach your salmon in a mix of one part vermouth to two parts of water with a couple of bay leaves and some whole pepper corns. When the fish is done drain it, let it cool, then peel off the skin.
Sprinkle the flesh with some Creole Seasoning and serve it with a sauce made of Hellman's Mayo and fine cut tarragon leaves. Fresh are best but dried works very well also. Be real generous with the tarragon. Let it sit in the fridge for an hour or two. Great flavor.

Sounds delicious. Ever make a veg stir fry with fresh greenbeans? I get about a pound of green beans, top and tail them and saute' them in some rendered pancetta and a little finely minced fresh garlic. Served up hot and crunchy and they are really great. If I'm not grilling my steak on the coals I like to pan fry it in a tablespoon of olive oil and a pat of butter. Cooked very rare and then reserved on the side while I make a sauce of pan juices, couple of tablespoons of red wine, and some sliced mushrooms. Toast up an English Muffin and serve the steak on the toast with the sauce poured over it and some of the green beans on the side. Glass of Shiraz and I am in tall clover.

Well, I recently told myself and my wallet that I would try to spend less money on fast food, so...I guess it'll be a Stouffers dinner instead of happy hours at Applebee's.

Tried to talk to the b/f into having dinner ready for me by the time I got home, it usually is during the week. Alas, he said I could find him sitting by the pool catching some rays and drinking a beer when I got home! Not the answer I was looking for! I'm guessing we'll be hitting up Applebees (even though I hate their food) for some $1 beers. Gotta love the Applebees by my house...$1 beers all day, every day!

That sounds so delicious!

I had fish & chips at TGIFridays. It was good.

Homemade chicken parm, tomato sauce and some store-bought pasta. I actually had some time to cook tonight.
