Fiona, did you cook that at home or did you go out for dinner? Man, what people are cooking at home now-a-days. Ya'll put me out of a job. Glad to see that everyone is eating pretty healthy, well, excepr for CupCake. I never realized that one could completely subside off of the cocoa bean but ....

Hhhhmmm ... tonight, we'll be having some salmon. Haven't decided what yet. We have some leftover Greek in the kitchen. Too bad no strawberries. I'd do a cucumber/strawberry salsa with a little aged balsamic. Nice and fresh. Plenty of leftover tabouleh and I have a spinach and feta calzone to go with. And, I would have to ask Beerman but we just got some Redhook ESB's. Should do well for the carbs.

Allez Cuisine!

Yes Lance I cooked this.. I'm a bit of a foodie

We have a lot of wonderful produce to play with down here in NZ. Last night it was pan fried Tarakihi fillets encrusted with lemon zest, cracked pepper & an asian rub served with baked potato, baked kumara & sauteed leek, cabbage & broccoli florets.. & it wasn't too bad

I took my mother out for her birthday lunch on the weekend, and my entree was truly amazing. It was..."Seared Scallops with Rice Noodles, Minced Duck Leg & Szechwan Pepper".

The restaurant was Catalina at Rose Bay in Sydney.

But what did your mother have???

And did she enjoy her birthday lunch?

She certainly did. It was as much a treat for me as it was for her, as it's certainly not the type of restaurant that I often go to. I think her entree were oysters, and her main was...."Grilled John Dory Fillet with Fish Boudin, Mussels and Saffron"

She got all teary when I dropped her home.

Maybe the tears weren't so much associated with joy as they were with the allergy to seafood...

You're a good son, James! (And a real softy, but I won't tell anyone!!) ;)

Lance - I think you should start a thread What Would You Prepare For Dinner Guests?

Fiona, Beerman and I are always up for an Iron Chef food challenge. Every few days, pick a new secret ingredient and see what happens...

Fabulous idea. Kinda what this thread is starting into. I would love to start another one like you just mentioned, though. Of course, if I start it then I get all the credit for its popoularity. He he he! Thanks for the bright idea

So, where is it??? And, what is the first secret ingredient???

You'll only get the credit if it doesn't fall to the second page after 24 hours...

Sorry been a little busy but I do want to start the thread. I would love to see what y'all will come up with. Gotta admit that I might have to start writing some of these down but I will give credit where it is due. And if we do start this I need your support to keep the thread on the first page. I wouldn't mind if anyone else wanted to take turns with the ingredient. Like Fiona - something native to New Zealnad that we might have to do research with. Although, lets make it easy for now.

Hhhmmm ... I think that dinner would have to be for well, 2 or 4? As I am still a single, eligible bachelor (;)) I wouldn't be doing dinner parties for couples or anything. But ... sorry, thinking as I'm writing and I got a pretty good sunburn today. We did a picnic for an architectural firm from San Fran today and I was out over the grill all day. Great to be doing it outside in the park, over some nice mesquite (and a little Kingsford briquettes, I'll admit it). I'm gonna go grab a beer, think about it, (oh, Beerman it is a nice wheat ale, Belgian-style) and see if we can get this started. I do know that I there will not be a time limit. I like to enjoy cooking, you kow, no need to put any pressure on this.

Cheers!
