Make sure you serve it with more single cream, for added lusciousness.
I just threw up a little bit in my mouth.

(Me, I had pizza, from here. )

Re: What Did You Have For Dinner Last Night?

I intended to make a pear and watercress salad with almonds and a vinaigrette, and then some sort of couscous/chickpeas/other awesome things dish for dinner. Then something came up and my plans were all destroyed, as I should have come to expect. I ended up putting a spinach pizza out, along with goat cheese on crackers.

But I still ate the chocolate cake. I'm convinced that anything in the world can be dealt with if one has a good glass of wine and a piece of chocolate cake.

Pork burgers and potato salad, with sliced tomatoes and cucumbers on the side.

Yes, pork burgers. They're delicious, so long as you have really good ground pork.

What? Of course we have this here, only it's usually called simply "bread pudding." My husband loves it, and my brother is an absolute addict. Whenever he goes out for dinner, he checks the menu to see if it has bread pudding before he even checks out the entres.

I got together with him and his wife a couple months ago (we live several hundred miles apart, alas), and we went to one of his favorite restaurants, and he was crushed - crushed - that this restaurant no longer has a special "Bread Pudding of the Day."

I like it fine, so long as nobody pollutes it with raisins, sultanas or currants, bleah. I like anything better so long as it's not polluted with raisins, actually.

KFC. Had some Tai food the other night. Soooo good.
First it's Kentucky GRILLED chicken, and now they server Tai food too? My whole world is falling apart!

haha, no, the Thai food wasn't from KFC, it was from a place called Thai Express. I just threw it in there because it just seems like every single time I find this thread and post in it, I always happen to have KFC or Wendy's and wanted to make sure people didn't think I was a heavy junk food eater, lol.

I should have pressed enter to avoid confusion, my bad.
I knew that. Really. I did.



We went to a local restaurant of a chef who is on the current edition of Hell's Kitchen. He has a special invitation only service on Tuesdays with a prix fixe menu where we all watch the show and get to ask questions about the "drama" at the commercial breaks. I honestly normally hate these shows -- and this one in particular -- but, because we know this chef and because it's become a group experience, it's sort of fun.

And the cocktails don't hurt.

Oh, and for dinner I had a wonderful tomato bisque, followed by lobster mac and cheese with bacon collard greens (not "colored greens") and a little blueberry peach cobbler for dessert. Was yummy.

"polluted"

You need a bit of zing in there though. Not necessarily raisins or sultanas, but something. The one with dates was pretty lush. I reckon figs might also be awesome.

^ I don't know...I am not a big fan of figs, but maybe if there were just enough in there to give it some "zing"...

I did have some one time (I believe it was Easter Sunday brunch) with pineapple in it. Supposedly it was the chef's grandmother's recipe. It was DEEEEEElish.

I LOVE fresh figs.

Last night I had bread with goat cheese, spinach salad and an apple. I wanted to make asparagus soup but wasn't up to it.

I had the weirdest concoction over dinner tonight - a fig & vanilla daiquiri. Rather yummy, as it happens.

(dinner itself was equally yummy tapas)
