What's for Dinner? Part 99! [old]

We're one away from our 100th WTF thread! How shall we celebrate? In the meantime, tho, let's post those delicious dinners and share our tables with each other.

  1. I've got nothing to add at the moment, as I believe the BF will be cooking up something for tonight. last night was a local taqueria that now serves chilean cabernet (!!), and tomorrow i'll be doing something with beef shanks....

      "Let's share--I got nothing" gave me my first good laugh of the day. You are adorable. And you walked me through a beautiful beef shank dinner last summer, so I'm looking forward to drooling over your upcoming dinner plans.

        i know, do as i say, not as i do!

        wow, what a memory on you, OADL! i'll have to look back at that.

        1. re: mariacarmen

          My memory occasionally gets past the effects of the gin. ;) I think it was a dish your boyfriend made for you, beef shanks braised with red wine and tomatoes, and lots of herbs.

          1. re: onceadaylily

            ah yes, the gin. had a couple of tanq and tonics last night, as a matter of fact. you've got the advantage of youth on me, however.

            i do remember that shank. i was going to do something quite similar.... nothing new under the sun here!

          they are skewered grilled pork cubes in an herb-y vinegar marinade - they were delish!

            Thanks! I do love me some pig with vinegar... :)

        2. last night was a white gazpacho with fennel topped with some apple crab salad. It was okay, as i don't usually have cold soup. I think the asian in me do not think it's food, it's rather fancy baby food...

          I am thinking for some crab cakes or something this dinner. i got some leftover crab meat in the fridge i need to finish... no one is complaining though.

            fancy baby food - that's a good one.

          2. Last night was appies and red, red wine et al. with friends whilst watching "Project Runway". We mostly dined on laughter.

              Ahh, thanks for the reminder, twodales! Will have to see if the premiere to this season is On Demand for viewing tonight. :-)

            2. Tonight was spicy pork tacos with avocado, cheese, green onion and tomato. We're saving the rest for the morning: tortilla, cheese, pork, two fried eggs. Hot sauce optional.
