Pigged out on this big plate of Taco salad. You can't see it but there is almost 3/4 lb. of our own lean burger browned in a little bacon grease and seasoned with taco mix under the lettuce and tomato. Topped off with shredded cheddar and Casa Mia salsa.:clap:

Not sure what I get for dinner tonight. Its the 27th Anniversary of our wedding. My lovely wife made us dinner reservations for Charlie Trotter's.

Link => http://www.charlietrotters.com/restaurant/

This restaurant has been on my "bucket list" list of places to go before I die.

Well congrats to you and the wife. That looks like one of those places where it should all be good so choice would only be limited by what you can pronounce.:whistling::clap:

I didn't notice any SLOVAK food on the menu so I'm going to be pretty limited in what I can pronounce!!!

I'm really looking forward to this meal, Charlie Trotter's is considered one of the top restaurants in the world and its right here in Chicago. Its literally won every major award in the industry and been here for nearly 25 years yet I've never managed to eat there. They announced that he was retiring to peruse other ventures and close on his 25th anniversary and my wife knew I wanted to eat there so she made the reservations.

Just got home from dinner in Chicago at Charlie Trotters. Chef Trotter invited us into the kitchen, we got a private tour of the kitchen by his sous chef, then a tour of his private TV studio. Amazing night. Didn't get to see his wine cellar but he's got 10,000 bottles in storage, highest price bottle I know of on his menu was $36,000.00. I can understand why it has been voted the best restaurant in the US a couple times and is ranked one of the best in the world every year. Amazing and wonderful.

I ate:
Sashimi of Katsuo with Razor Clams, Aged Soy & Fava Beans

Unagi Terrine with Grapefruit, Red Curry & Kaffir Lime

Steamed Alaskan Halibut with Green Almonds, Acorn-Fed Iberian Ham & Thai Basil

Arkansas Rabbit Loin with Ramps, Burgundy Snails & Mustard Cress

Pine Grove Lamb Loin with Toasted Espresso, Trumpet Royale Mushrooms, Crumbled Oats & Boudin Noir

Granny Smith Apple & Greek Yogurt Sorbet with Meyer Lemon, Tarragon & Candied Pistachio

Toffee Glazed Banana Financier with Candied Hazelnuts, Pickled Dates & Roasted Coconut

Criollo Cake with Parsnip, Red Wine & Candied Vanilla

My wife ate:
Hot & Sour Eggplant with Tiny Leeks, Lotus Root & Yuba

Fennel Custard with Marinated Cauliflower, Puy Lentils & Green Garlic Sorbet

Stinging Nettle Soup with Globe Artichokes, Sumac & Cipollini Onions

One-Hour Poached Hen’s Egg with Morel Mushrooms, Swiss Chard & Liquorice

Miso Tortellini with Red Cabbage, Turnip Confit & Ponzu

Ginger-Braised Bosc Pear with St. Germaine Sorbet & Chamomile Cotton Candy

Butter Scotch & Black Tea Crème Brûlée with Toasted Vanilla Ice Cream

Guava Mousse with Caramelized White Chocolate & Passion Fruit

We each had wine, but our wines were different, each glass was paired with each of our courses. So it was something like 16 plates of food and 16 glasses of wine (not full glasses) spread out over 3 hours.

Hehe.. I knew you'd like it there.
:whistling::poke::yum:
My attorney Clayton and his wife Susan eat there often when they go visit their daughter Rachel, who happens to be a very successful singer and actress, currently in rehearsal for summer stock.
I may catch the train in Waterloo the next time they decide to go up there and see her this summer.

Italian Epi baguettes topped with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, sweet onions & Spanish paprika. Taking a road trip tomorrow to the Dayton, Ohio Hamvention with two friends. Also taking sliced homemade Soppresata sausage and a cheese assortment. Four hours of driving each way gets boring, so we'll eat along the way.

I decided I wanted bbq chinese ribs when I got out of work. So I got my order in (ribs and 1 egg roll) just before they stopped taking delivery orders. And they were YUMMY I'll have the tacos tonight. DD made enough for 2 nights. So no cooking except to make guac.

Good dinner and great company with the neighbors, DS and his GF. Ribs had a little over 2 hours in the smoker grill, and were tender and juicy. Smoked them with hickory, and they had a nice smoke ring. The sides were brought by the neighbors, and were as delicious as they look.We supplied the ribs, corn and the beer.

Filled with Ricotta, Parmesan-Romano blend, Cream Cheese, Mozzarella and spinach. I only cooked 9 of them for myself, but I wished I had 18. SWMBO said I had enough. Peanut butter cookies (2) for dessert. I freeze the raviolis on cookie sheets, then transfer to freezer bags.

I made Potato Bombs for my dinner. DW went to a wedding with one of her widow friends, so I was left alone and to my own devices. This idea came from a YouTube video here that was posted on a friend's food website.

Here's the sequence.
Core the taters with an apple coring tool. Cut the plugs into thirds and save end plugs.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Potato%20Bombs/P1040347.jpg

Make a filling for the holes. I used ham, cooked salami, mozzarella & sharp cheddar cheeses.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Potato%20Bombs/P1040349.jpg

Plug the holes to hold the filling in while baking.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Potato%20Bombs/P1040350.jpg

Wrap the potato with a whole strip of bacon.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Potato%20Bombs/P1040351.jpg

Wrap in aluminum foil and bake for 1 hour at 375F.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Potato%20Bombs/P1040352.jpg

A thing of beauty when fully cooked.
http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v664/flyfishohio/Food/Potato%20Bombs/P1040356.jpg

Cut lengthwise and apply your favorite topping(s).

My DW decided at 5:30 that she would like pizza and a salad for dinner, which means TWO pizzas because I don't like boring peperoni & cheese pizzas. She went to the store and I made the dough and cut up MY toppings; onion, green pepper, broccoli and some leftover ham off the bone. As DW's pizza was going on the stone, she decided she also wanted broccoli on hers (like that's going to make it healthy or something. Sheesh!) :lol:

This turned out so good that I wanted to post it by itself before dinner.

Diced Russet taters, hard cooked eggs, diced celery, grated carrot, celery seed, Hellman's mayo, sour cream, sweet pickle relish, salt, fresh ground pepper, topped with sliced eggs, parsley and Spanish paprika. As with most, no measuring, just go by feel and taste.

Between myself, Linette and some others, we decided that someone should run downtown to the concessions for the Italian sausage/onion and pepper subs.

Guess who got elected?
It was a madhouse down there.. had to park at the bank and walk down in uniform, no less..

Shrimp, green beans, sesame chicken over vegetable fried rice and some kind of beef & mushroom dish that was quite good. (Quite possibly it could have been made from some feral animal from around the restaurant. http://netcookingtalk.com/forums/images/smilies/redface.gif )

Yes I do rlk.

Basically you bake the potatoes at 350* for an hour in the oven.
Take them out, cut them in half and scoop out the inside leaving a 1/4" shell.
Smother the inside with butter, and add some salt and pepper. Then put in some crumbled cooked bacon and top it off with shredded cheddar cheese.
Throw them back in the oven for 10 - 15 minutes to melt the cheese.
I added diced green onions and sour cream on top. You can also add chives, or whatever else you want.
Must use Wisconsin cheese tho. :mrgreen:

I notice you have charcoal briquettes on a gas grill. Never seen that done before. Does that help give more of a charcoal taste?

Thanks, Bob.

Ironman,

Thanks, Bob.
Yes Bob, it does when they are under the food.

My original plan was to put an expanded steel grate over the burners in place of the stainless flavorizer bars, and fill it with ceramic briquettes. When the drippings fall on the hot briquettes you get the same smoke flavor of charcoal. I never got around to fabbing up a grate yet, so I put the briquettes in between the flavorizer bars, but a few of them fell through so I just put them inside on top of the grill for now. You can barely see a few of them in the pics still there.
I grill out all year long and wanted to make it simple as possible, so I piped a natural gas line out to my new grill. But - I prefer the taste of charcoal (without the hassle). I think I got everything almost the way I want it now for when the Packers are in the playoffs this year and win the Superbowl. :mrgreen:

I was tied up with an event all weekend ("Field Day" for ham radio), so when my 26 year-young son and his girlfriend came over today to do their laundry, my wife asked him if he wanted to make the dinner for tonight. Not a chef, but just a guy who also enjoys cooking he jumped at the opportunity, as his apartment only has 18" of workable counter space. I think he did an excellent job, starting with just a package of bone-in chicken breast. I like to think the apple has not fallen far from the tree. He makes me proud. BTW, the chicken breast was grilled to perfection, and was very juicy.
