New Blog

I just added a blog to the sidebar--"Fed Up With School Lunch".

Interesting reading. Check it out!

I have some catching up to do! I have all of these pictures on my phone, but just have been so tired that sitting at the computer to post just hasn't been on my radar.

At any rate, here is tomorrow's lunch, but presented on one of my salad plates for tonight's dinner.
I used two Eating Well recipes. The first was for oven fried chicken fried steak. I'm a CFC purist. I like it thin, crispy, and fried to a golden goodness. Fortunately (or not?), I only make it maybe 1-2x a year. I had some leftover cubed steak in the freezer that I needed to use, so decided to try this recipe. Surprisingly, it didn't disappoint. It was crispy, flavorful, and tender. I did omit the cornstarch and just upped the quantities of the wheat flour and corn meal. Instead of making the gravy called for in the recipe, I made a mushroom-sherry sauce. It was good, but I doubt I'd repeat it. I served with roasted broccoli drizzled with avocado oil and fried garlic (from a jar). I don't like broccoli, so am proud of myself for eating it. Twice.

Norman's Finest-A Hidden Gem

OK, so I am sending you to another blog for their review, but thought I'd share anyway. This is where K and I had our first date, our 1-year anniversary date (of dating), and last New Year's Eve.

It's just a bit outside of town, and oh-so-worth it.

The lobster bisque is the best I've ever had. OK, so it's the only I've ever tried, but it truly is one of the best things I've ever eaten. Ever. I wanted to lick the bowl.

Anyhow, here is the review.
