I make breakfast burritos with tater tots in them. The crunch really goes well with the eggs.

Braised lamb shanks in sundried tomato and kalamata sauce w/ black trumpet mushroom and truffle risotto. Paired it with a 2005 Kilikanoon The Medley GSM

Day off work, felt like experimenting Smile
Roast Chicken with dipping sauce (think Swiss Chalet sauce with fresh herbs), Cauliflower Paprikash and Spaetzle. Served with a mediocre Chilean Pinot Noir (Anakena). Dinner was really good, though.
My wife got me some Alton Brown "Good Eats" dvd's for my birthday last month. Just had to try his version of steak au poivre. It turned out amazingly well for an amateur like myself. Damn near burned the house down igniting the cognac! Served with Rudd cabernet Jericho Canyon 1999.
Last night we had a pan roasted filet of beef (with a little garlic butter on top), sautéed mushrooms and spinach salad with red wine vinaigrette. Paired with a 05 Clos des Andes Malbec – Great QPR.
Last night - carnitas and chile rellenos....

Now, don't laugh. I picked them up at Costco. The carnitas I have had before, and I think they are very, very good. Makes for an excellent machaca the next day.

The rellenos? Not so good. Won't be buying again....
Tried grilling duck breasts tonight. They were good and required care so I didn't burn them, but they really belong in a pan over high heat.

Yeah, I could see that skin(fat) being a major issue on the grill. I would definitely stick to pan searing, the taste should be better and the with a wider variety of uses...then again I prefer my steaks to be cooked over extremely high heat in a cast iron pan. I have a $2,000 grill that rarely gets used. Frown

I’ve been thinking of trying the carnitas at Costco. I tried their “fresh” tamales and they were no bueno.

Last night we made eggplant parm with the 2006 Argiolas Cannonau di Sardegna Costera.
Chinese food from the back of a truck @ U of T campus (starchy, oily, spicy, and filling, all for under $7!); paired with my last bottle of 1990 Z-H Herrenweg de Turckheim Gewurz.
Went out for pizza and beer Friday night after T-Ball practice....

Last night - rib eyes, sauteed mushrooms, sauteed baby squash. '01 Duckhorn Estate Merlot and '03 Lewis Merlot....
Sunday: Homemade spaghetti, pork ribs, meatballs. Roast Beef.

Today: Cornbeef and cabbage etc. at my sister's house.

For a Monday I guess I can eat that stuff. Razz

Mother in Law did this and there were about 12 of us. I do not make the hand cut spaghetti. She does it great and I am thrilled to indulge in it whenever she makes it!, so I got the day off.

It's nice to just show up and eat sometimes... Smile
Saturday night dinner was chicken saltimbocca, risotto with red bell peppers and zucchini. Paired with 2006 Prà Soave Classico. Dinner was much better than the wine.

Board-O, you seem to stir-fry a lot. I have never tried cooking Chinese at home; care to share your recipe?
