Dinner at Estiatorio Milos in Las Vegas. (I would normally put travel photos in regional boards but we are only here for a couple of nights to see a concert, and I never plan to return to Vegas as there is pretty much nothing about it that I find appealing, so it’s not worth doing a full report) 

 

Display of fish on offer. We chose a loup de mer cooked in salt crust to share

Husband and sister got the same cocktail, a Monks in Mexico (tequila, Cointreau, elderflower, grapefruit, lime)

Shared appetizer of fried zucchini and eggplant with tzatziki and saganaki cheese (best thing of the night)

I found out that my son likes pan fried okra a lot more than I thought.  So before it goes out of season and the farmers markets close, I thought I'd make it one more time.  I saw a Country Style Ribs that looked better that usual. It was one big thick slab of meat with bones.  

Charlie has been doing some remodeling,,, mostly in the basement where I have a pottery studio. He built some shelves which are lighted. He also added some lighting under the cabinets so the kitchen counters are lit.

 

While I was looking through an old cookbook that I kept before I had a computer, I came across home made corn chips and thought I'd try them again and see how the would compare to todays store bought ones.  They are OK but the taste is not as developed as they have become after all those years.  

Finally Povitica bread is BOGO this time of the year and we had some of that too.

Live scallops $29 a piece 😳  I bet they are good, though.

Simple recipe using pan seared chicken breasts that are then simmered in a mixture of sauteed onion, garlic, soy sauce and honey, so a pleasant sweet and savory flavor. Made broccoli rabe as our veg and it turned out to be a great combo of sweet/salty/bitter on the plate.

Unfortunately, the family reserve is long gone. I am using now the regular stuff, and in this case the chipotle version …

OMG, we eat well. Roving down this thread it is clear we know what we're doing...

 

Anyway, I purchased a Vulcanus butane gas cartridge and banged out this tataki tuna.

2 nieces we haven't seen for many years arrived today for Thanksgiving. Picked them up at the airport, and we had wonton soup for lunch.

Daughter and s-i-l arrived from the city and we had a simpler supper tonight before the big meal tomorrow with more family arriving.

I had made the Canadian Cheddar Cheese Apple Crisp last night. It went into the oven to warm up while we ate supper, and we had that for dessert with vanilla ice-cream.

I learned about them and made some in the early 1970s.  I later learned that a Mexican-American restaurant owner in Texas created chips he called fritos and it inspired the Frito company to produce them commercially starting in the 1930's.  The earliest ones and also the ones  I made today were with an egg, salt, a cup of water and enough Masa to make a soft dough.  I put it in a pastry bag with a ribbon tip and pipe it into hot oil.  If I ever decide to try it again, I think I'll add some seasoning like taco seasoning or chili pepper.  It is a lot easier to just tear open a bag and start munching.😋

We are seeing it twice. Last night we were in a small reserved section on the floor that the band sells tickets for to raise money for their charity, and tonight we have seats up in the Sphere so we can take in the visual effects. It’s quite the show. 
 

Last night’s dinner was at SushiSamba.  Crispy Hokkaido scallop (they are priced by the piece and I was the only one who wanted to try it) 

 

IMG_1926.thumb.jpeg.877efd880dd9023ef84dea689fb5bef3.jpeg

 

yellowtail taquitos 

 

IMG_1924.thumb.jpeg.770f5f439b47ef985b25e590e8abeb8a.jpeg

 

Cocktails. My berry smash mocktail is on the right and my sister and husband got the same cocktail, but I did not catch the name. 
 

IMG_1920.thumb.jpeg.ecf4032493a2402e11fded1784070af0.jpeg
 

Grilled miso sea bass (this and the scallop were my favorites) 

 

IMG_1929.thumb.jpeg.42ab0d41f0fefcda677831cb194a2110.jpeg

 

Sushi rolls.  Tuna in the back, and a four fish roll in the front. It had salmon, yellowtail, tuna and fluke.

 

IMG_1930.thumb.jpeg.3a86e4dcb4b4fa144ca11f787f703db3.jpeg

 

And the el Topo, which was the house specialty roll. We did not like this one because it had cheese on it.  We kept passing it around the table trying to foist it off on each other 😂

 

IMG_1931.thumb.jpeg.eb3b64418b08bc141c9fcae2b550cf6c.jpeg
 

dessert was a coffee panacotta with coffee tuille.

Vietnamese grilled (baked/broiled) chicken on a bed of rau ram. I swear, if I had a restaurant, I'd made rau ram soaked in chicken juices either an appetizer or a side dish!

 

Happy me!

 

After reading your post and twitching with envy and frustration, I decided to search just once more for rau răm on my purchasing options. My usual one hour later delivery people deny all knowledge, but on Taobao, the main Amazon-like shopping portal I hit gold!

 

I can buy 250 g, 500 g or a full kilo and it will take, at best, until tomorrow to get here. Probably two days.

I can also order potted plants and set up in business myself!

 

So glad you posted your meal. It gave me good kick up the posterior! Thanks.

These greek stews are right up my alley ... did you mix with the kritharaki after cooking or did you cook them in the stew (like in a Giuvetsi type of preparation) ?
