Roomie is having a friend over so my DH can fix the back window of her convertible top on her car. She is unable to see through it due to the age of the plastic. My DH knows how to clean it up. So, I am now expected to be the cook and make dinner. Maybe I am just a nasty old lady but for some reason it just doesn't sit right with me so I am cranky. Plus I have to see the doctor today so that makes me double cranky. They want shrimp tacos with cilantro-lime coleslaw.
I watched a YouTube video on how to peel garlic without smashing the cloves. Put a whole head of garlic into a medium size bowl, cover with another same size bowl, then start shaking so you can hear the garlic rattle. I didn't have two same size bowls so I just grabbed a tall food storage container with a lid and used that. I started shaking the container vigorously and in less than a minute I had perfectly peeled garlic. You learn something new every day.

I pulled out two single-serve casseroles of our favorite Chicken Sausage with Pasta I had stored in the freezer. Good stuff. I ended up thawing them in the microwave and then baking them off in the oven for a few minutes to get a tiny bit of crust on the top. Also toasted some ciabatta in the toaster oven.

((Barb mentioned earlier.....Photobucket is down for maintenance. Will have to post a pic later.))

For supper tonight, I baked three Maryland Crab Cakes that my Neice sent 8 containers of from Hellas Restaurant in Millersville, MD.
I made two for me, and one for Tina. OMG...they were fabulously Good.
Tina didn't like hers. She said too much crab and not enough bread. Guess that was good for me! I scoffed it up .... 1...2....3!
Oh! I had some leftover shrimp scampi from Olive Garden from yesterday.....

I see tomatoes on the back counter. I could surely go for a bunch of Toasted slices of Italian bread with tomatoes, garlic, and basil and olive oil. Bruschetta. Ummm!

Oh! almost forgot! ..... Tina made chocolate pizzelle today, and she even made some into bowls, to fill with ice cream; banana's and toppings. Then whipped cream to top it off! Yummm!!

Yeah! Isn't that weird?
She even likes stuffed clams, but not if they have too many clam pieces.
I love to go to red lobster with her. She will order a lobster tail, eat two little fork fulls, and say "I'm sick; it's too rich for me!" Good for me, cuz then I get her lobster! tongue

BTW... The ziti look great! Ummmm.

Barb, your bread looks wonderful. How in the world do you survive in the house with the wonderful smell of fresh rising/baking bread? I think yeast is one of the best smells in the world.

Have you ever made PeteFL's 'everyday' bread? He raved about it and I've never attempted it.

I'm just happy to have Jetfan's egg bread recipe. I love the taste of that one.

Yeah, does sound a bit 'selfish' to ask for a Zo rice maker to use for making dinner for the pups.... don't think Chris is THAT generous. LOL

I've decided to continue my 'don't-deny-yourself-foods-you-love' day.....

It's a beautiful day so I've decided to pull out a bone-in rib eye I had in the freezer, waiting for when I really, REALLY wanted it. Today's that day!

I'm thinking I'll do it in my cast iron skillet and finish it 'restaurant style' in the oven. I saw Bobby Flay (I know, NOT one of my favorites, but has good ideas once in a while) cook a bone-in porterhouse one time and he seared it, cut it off the bone, then re-assembled and continued to cook in the oven until medium rare. It looked so good. I'm going to try to replicate the method and see how it goes.



This stek is easily big enough for the two of us to share. I'm already planning to have the 'bone side' as MINE. LOL

Everything Flay makes will scorch your windpipe. He doesn't know how to cook without cayenne pepper.
