Elmo and I went met some friends and went to the Dali Restaurant in Somerville last night. The place was packed and there would have been a 45 minute wait except they offered us four seats at the bar which we took. Man, it was wonderful. We basically ordered a bunch of appetizer size dishes including Cauliflower/Broccoli/Cheese Puffs, Scallops in Saffron Cream, Beef Short Ribs in Rioja Wine Sauce, Fried Spanish Cheese w/Honey & Sweet Onion Unforgettable how delicious their food is!
I'm so jealous. I haven't been there in years! Your description seriously has me
Let's see if that hermit crab RJD will meet us all there sometime
I'm in!!! What about you, Smoothie?

Re: What Did You Have For Dinner Last Night?

^I'm in there like swim wear!

Last night I made something of a cross between pot roast and stew. Cooked a piece of brisket pot roast style for a couple hours, then threw in some stew veggies (carrot, turnip, parsnip, potato, yam, celery) for the last hour or so.

Baked up a white acorn squash with brown sugar and raisins to go on the side. It was good. Yesterday was a crappy day here, and it was nice to have the kitchen smells wafting around the house.

It also counteracted the dog, who had a horrid case of the toots yesterday.

Sounds like a pahty (sic - for those not from the Bahston area.)

That sounds fantastic!!!

I forgot to mention above that I made Teriyaki steak tips last night with a nice iceberg "wedge" salad (accompanied by more home grown veggies) and baked potato (and a few left over frozen "Nathan's" onion rings which -- can I just say -- are pretty damn good.)

It also counteracted the dog, who had a horrid case of the toots yesterday.
So, it's not just my dogs? Must be something in the air - pun intended.

^Yeah I don't get it either. All afternoon yesterday he was stinking it up like mad. I did give him some leftovers I was throwing out of the fridge in the morning. Shame on me I guess, and I paid for it later.

We were out running around most of yesterday, so we just stopped and picked up some Chinese food on the way home.

Something called a "Hunter's Melt" which was on the specials board at the pub and grill last night. Thinly slice ribeye covered in swiss and cheddar cheese, grilled onions and sauteed mushrooms served on sourdough bread with fries. It was surprisingly good.
It sounds awesome from the description. Why the surprise at the goodness?

More of the same, boring dinners. I'm trying to get my blood sugar back under good control, and despite consuming pretty much nothing but salad and veggies (non starchy, I know my carbs), I'm not having much luck.
Today's salad: mixed greens, celery, green onion, sprouts, chickpeas, homemade tahini dressing.
Hope your luck turns soon!



I'm killing time, waiting for my roast leg of pork to finish cooking. It already smells utterly delicious but isn't quite done yet, so I'm desperately trying to distract myself from it while waiting...

I've been less than impressed by some of the specials at this place in the past. They always have a good description, but the results aren't always up to par. This time they were.

These ribs got dry rubbed with some spices and then baked for about 40 minutes before they hit the grill last night..

Damn, I loathe pork but those ribs do look good! I just love BBQ.

For me, I'm still being extremely careful with my diet. Today I created a tuna salad: Premium white tuna packed in water and drained mixed with finely chopped celery, carrot, onion, and cabbage, a bit of vinegar, sesame oil, pepper, and a few other spices. It was actually really, really good! Very low carb, low fat.

I also found a sugar free dark chocolate bar from Godiva at the impulse counter in the grocery store! I'm allowing myself half (no sugar doesn't mean no effect on blood sugar).

I skipped dinner as I always do on Tuesdays because of class, but my friend made me a snack to eat during class. Some wheat thins, a low cal granola bar, and carrots. Sometimes I love my friends.
