Too late for that. :p

I made some homemade chicken soup last night with carrots, peas, corn, celery, and wild rice that was exceptional. I just tore the chicken pieces from a large grocery store rotisserie special, used the carcass along with the unused parts of the celery and carrots to make the stock, and added some salt, pepper, basil, oregano, and marjoram. Ooh, and a pinch of saffron.

It was exquisite.

I see Doc's appetite is back.

And Grand Marnier Souffle has to be my all-time favorite dessert -- and it doesn't even have chocolate in it! I remember we used to go to the Ritz in Newport Beach around Christmastime every year for my husband's company holiday dinner, and they served it there. It is truly heavenly... and to know it's available right down the street in Fullerton is making me think decadent and fattening thoughts... Mmmmmm!!!

Two of my favorite eat-out desserts are tirimisu and zabaglione. That's my Sicilian half talking. Perhaps the best restaurant dessert of all time was the cheesecake at Buzz's Eating Experience in Sandusky, Ohio

I have a taste for lots of interesting stuff, but I will list by far the more interesting ones..


Goose liver pate imported from Barvaria... (excellent on those water crackers from England)

Old Fashioned Kettle Cooked UTZ Brand Salt and Vinegar Potato Chips

Thai Style Soft Shell Crabs - Deep Fried and Served with Curry Black Bean Sauce

Sweet Potato Creme Brulle from the Ropewalk Restaurant in Bel Air MD

But my all time favorite is my own receipe for

Amarreto Flavored New York Style Cheesecake with a Warm Chambord and Fresh Raspberry Sauce


I can certainly continue...

We definitely need to have dinner at Smith and Wollenskys then. That is my ideal meal right there. With a bit of wine, that is.

Found a place to sell me filet mignon at wholesale. C$8/lbs. Don't eat hamburgers, nor steaks anymore. Have filet mignon 3 times a week!

Here's to red meat! (and a bottle of red wine to go with it)

Home made, vodka-rubbed prime rib, with garlic mashed potatoes, oven roasted broccoli and a serious bottle of red along for the ride.

And it's going into the oven in about 15 minutes!

The Cellar also has a chocolate souffle. The last time Judy and I went there we ordered one of each.

The Cellar is pricey? Naw.... filling up the 8 is pricey.

About how much for dinner for one person?

I dunno about NomisR but if it's over $30/person I consider it expensive.

$30 will buy you an entree and maybe a salad if you pick the cheap options. You would not be getting the Cellar full experience and no souffle.

For you Orange County guys, The Hobbit is another of my favorites. Haven't been there in a while. You need to book months in advance.

Doc,

Over 25 years ago the Brownstone was my favorite place. Is that still as good as I remember?

places like that you're looking at $50-75 a person. especially if you get wine.

Woo, thanks for another recommendation.. will try that too.. seems like a fun place.

I was looking at the menu for the Cellar, the lamb chops shoulds good, what do you recommend?

Oh, I found Melting Pot to be a fun place to go, food's not too bad but it's just something different..

Strangely enough, I've never heard of it. From the website, it looks wonderful, with a very good wine list too.

These are also what I'm partial to at a restaurant, although you probably got a lot more per diem stuff than I did.


But my real tasty habit is something I picked up recently. After three square meals each day and a snack in the middle, I go and buy between 1000-1500 Calories of candy, which is also between 250-500g of sugar depending on what I get. Yesterday it was a bottle of tea, and three ice cream bars, and an ice cream sandwich, and a bag of twizzlers. Thankfully I exersize a large amount every day or I'd be enormous.

We need Doc's old avatar here. "It's all good". But, have the lobster bisque for starters. 7200 calories of pure cream in a bowl. The blood cholesterol goes up 20 points just sniffing it.

Followed by the Grand Marnier souffle and you can die happy. Correction, you will die happy.
