Getting rid of the leftovers.

Tonight.  Cream of prawn soup with melted brie floating.  In the soup were deep-fried butterflied prawns, marinated in fresh cream, egg yolks and half-and half, finished in sifted baking flour,  floating on deep fried potato slices.  In the center, a 3″ mushroom boat, marinated in cream, butter, and baked to the top with brie, slightly browned.

The bread course was fresh tandori bread, baked with a butter brush and VERY thinly slices tomatoes.  VERY tasty.  Candied mango on the side.

The dessert course was fresh almond cookies served over fresh (homemade) double French vanilla ice cream with a light melted sugar-cane sugar/cinnamon topping (fresh, of course) with a drop or two of 100% natural maple syrup.   

100% Kona coffee, Whipped heavy cream to taste;  Conjure cognac.  No cigars.  You can't smoke in my house, and you can't show up smelling like an ashtray or you will get dis-invited in a heartbeat.  Really cute women who show up stoned and acting frisky will be given the benefit of the doubt.

As usual, no calories – you can eat all you want.  But you really can't eat that much.  🙂

Someone please explain to me why a person with my looks….ok, skip that….with my skills in the kitchen isn't married to…  Oh.  Nevermind.  I WAS married.  They don't come with an “off” button or a volume control.  :-O


90% of success is showing up.  Getting the math right is the other 50%.
