    Dinner 2019

    Soft shell crabs tonight. I smoked up the kitchen pretty badly at my last venture, so tonight, I went out to the grill, preheated to 400 (F). Added a few TBS of butter to a hot sizzle platter and added the freshly cleaned crabs that had been dredged in seasoned flour and lightly shaken to remove excess coating, turning once after about 8 minutes. I cooked for another 3 or 4 minutes and turned them out on the grill, brushing with melted roasted garlic and ramp compound butter and briefly turned them again. I served these with a spicy kimchi tarter sauce. My only comment: KILLER!!!!!! HC

    I found some fresh, local haddock fillets at $6.99 pp and the rest was history. Haddock fish and chips always makes me happy and Deb had no complaints either. While I was at the market, I learned that live soft shell crabs were coming in just before the 10 AM opening bell. Guess who'll be there as well tomorrow morning! HC

    Dinner 2019

    On a recent cruise, Deb and I enjoyed popcorn shrimp with a spicy tartar sauce a couple of times. I spotted some in the freezer section and gave them a try. It seems just a few days ago that I stated that I never buy cooked shrimp, and off I went and did it. These were not bad (served with a kimchi tartar sauce), but I would make my own from scratch in the future and probably serve them as a side. HC

    Breakfast 2019

    No, I never have, but I am always on the lookout for good blue cheese. There is not a great selection around here and I have yet to try mail order. HC

    Dinner 2019

    Spotted these little steaks after a pretty late lunch with Deb and thought they might just fit into our dinner plans, which they did. I smeared them with roasted garlic compound butter and threw then onto a hot, hot grill for just a few scant minutes. Some sour cream with the first of the season chives out of the herb tubs on the deck was a welcome addition. HC

    Dinner 2019

    A note on last years calendar and a few phone calls, got me to the first soft shell crabs in the area today. Even though these were not the smaller "mediums" that I am used to, old habits die hard. I made these "hotels" as sandwiches, the rolls were quickly cast aside. I served these with a kimchi and onion tartar sauce, and they were the best!!! HC

    I refuse to buy cooked shrimp. I peel fresh (or frozen), raw shrimp completely, so that the entire shrimp can be eaten, steam them for four minutes, plunge them in ice water and pat dry when cold. HC

    Dinner 2019

    Deb found some nice looking pork chops, on sale, the other day and made some sauce with the few leftovers. Tonight, I worked some of that sauce into a rigatoni dinner with a bit of bruschetta. HC

    Dinner 2019

    I remove the stem, scrape out the gills and stuff with garlic & herb Alouette cheese, topped with a mixture of seasoned bread crumbs and freshly grated parmesan cheese and bake at 400 (F) for 30 min. HC

    Dinner 2019

    Baked, stuffed Portobello mushroom caps, fried zucchini chips with a lemon and garlic aioli dip, some very nice Capri tomatoes with olive oil and seasoning and a few hazelnut stuffed olives. We like to drizzle these stuffed caps with a little Balsamic vinegar. HC

    I could not agree more, but the last pears I bought skipped right over being ripe! HC
