    Default If it is good to eat, I'll eat it.

    Someone once asked what my favorite meal would consist of. I can't honestly answer that, although I do believe I could eat good bar-b-qued ribs every day of the week. And, by GOOD, I mean good by my standards and there are only a very few places that have ever made ribs that I would go back for. One of those has been mentioned by me several times and it is only 7 miles from my home.

    However, Al tells me that one of the reasons he loves me so much (and he often lies) is because I can blend flavors and create fantastic meals. I tell him it is only because he'd eat just about anything other than ground up newspaper and love it. I do pride myself on being a good cook, and I do love to cook . . . so, I will share one of our favorite meals, on which we supped tonight:

    Start out with a pot of boiling water and add a package of pre-made tortellini - cook according to directions, usually about 8-10 minutes. I use any fillings that I find - Italian sausage, three cheese, chicken with cheese, spinach and Asiago (one of my favorite cheeses). Meanwhile I pull some of my staples from the pantry and/or refrigerator. Tonight I prepared 2 cans of Anchovies (yeah, I know, everyone is going YUCK . . . but they are SO good!!), fresh crushed garlic (2 tablespoons!!), marinated mushrooms, marinated artichoke hearts, fire-roasted red peppers, capers, Feta cheese, and basil pesto sauce. Stir over the drained, hot pasta and serve.

    Al says he loves me also, because I sort of go orgasmic when I eat. I do love my food!!!!

    Other things I add - not all together, of course, include sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, fresh roasted garlic, Italian sausage chunks, 4 Cheese mixture from Olive Garden . . . it depends upon what we have. Top it off with your favorite wine then sit back and YUM over and over . . .

    I am a FOODAHOLIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    BEC, You are adopted. Tomorrow night we are having smoked Alaskan salmon served with sour cream, chopped hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped onion, capers, and hot mustard on crackers. We set up a small table in front of the entertainment center, turn on some great music and add whatever we want. YUMMY!!!

    Did I say that I love to eat?

    Can I come tomorrow night please, I am sure there is a jet plane some where that could get me there in time, I love Salmon and smoke salmon is even better. I can bring a nice barossa valley wine to go with the salmon.
    Remember, people will see your quilts long after you are gone. . . Not your housework!!

    Sandy, I love to cook too! I am always making something up, it doesn't always turn out the greatest but I do attempt different things. I have never been a big salmon fan, although I love salmon patties. DH likes it though so I think I will look up a few recipes and buy some salmon and give it another go. Maybe my taste buds have changed over the years.

    Love salmon patties, too - especially with creamed peas. However, salmon filets - place skin-side down in hot skillet. Smear top of salmon with your favorite mustard, add some thinly sliced onions, squeeze a bit of lemon juice over all, sprinkle on some shredded Parmesan cheese and stick it into a 400 degree oven for exactly 7 minutes. PERFECT! My mouth is watering.
