I've thawed out a steak and have leftovers from the zucc dish of yesterday. Think I'll check thru C@H library for something to do with Swt. potato.

What's not to love about that zucchini casserole! Yum. Kind of reminds me of a quiche, only without the milk.

Speaking of quiche, we had some fresh broccoli that needed to be used, so I made a simple broccoli and cheese quiche (no crust) this morning to have for brunch. That will hold us over until later today when we are driving to Akron to have dinner and go to the Oakridge Boys Christmas show.

Trixxee, have a wonderful time in Vegas! If you remember, take pics of food and your suite! I have only ever stayed in a suite one time and that was in New Orleans, sharing it with Heather and James. We loved it.

Oh, I didn't think that anyone would actually take notice, Jean. Big Grin We really enjoy going to concerts and try to go to a few every year.

So, we're going to leave here shortly and go to the Barley House for bar food and beer before the show.

Surf & Turf at its best - One of the best dinners I’ve ever made….even tho I overcooked the darn (!) steak. I always pull my steak at 118° but this one got away from me and I didn’t get it until 130° - way too done for me! But, combining Dave’s (Chef Dave Nelson) method for lobster and what I like, gave us the perfect lobster. It was so buttery, tender, juicy – I could not ask for better results!! And, the Rib Eye was such a tender piece, that even overcooking it didn’t completely ruin it. Thank heavens.
 
Lobster – I par-boiled the loosened lobster (these were the little guys grocery stores always put on sale) for 1 ½ min. in boiling water. Sous Vide at 130° for 18 minutes with slices of Truffle Butter. Perfect – 18 minutes was up as the steak was resting. And, a little more Truffle butter at serving. I had a side dish that I didn’t even bother with – just surf & turf and 14 Hands!!

YUM!

We are at the lake washing clothes, so steak and baked potato tonight.  I may have to hit my steak with butter and truffle salt.

One of the best concerts I ever attended was many years ago in Atlantic City: Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers with Roger Miller.

Labs, I'm so glad you are on here! What can I use instead of photobucket to upload pix to the forum?
