Pad Thai One On

Sheri and I went on a little adventure tonight. We went to Old Town Littleton to have dinner and do a bit of shopping. I also found a Thai restaurant called Wild Ginger to try out. I’m not a huge fan of Thai food (too much coconut) but there’s always something I can try. Sheri loves…

And the obligatory Manhattan

In Santa Fe, of course. I didn’t get to meet the bartender at El Farol, but this was one of the best I’ve ever had. Perfectly balanced. The Flamenco Dancing show after dinner was equally amazing.

Why?

Why are eggs cooked in butter so delicious and yummy, but the same eggs cooked in olive oil are nasty enough to make me want to throw up?

New (for us) Holiday traditions

Sheri and I started a new (for us) tradition today. We went to Volcano Asian Cuisine our favorite Asian restaurant for dinner. I had known about the “Jewish” tradition of Chinese dining (and a movie or two) for years, but it was new to Sheri. We had a lovely “traditional” gathering at my aunt’s house…

Buddha as kitchen help

Lots of cooking today. Two roasted chickens, a bunch of bacon, microwaved kale chips (even better than baked) and roasted cabbage steaks. After all that, we had a bunch of nice cooking smells mingling about the place. Eventually, though, they turn into not so nice house smells. So we enlisted the power of the Buddha to…

Cookies are ready

I am ready for Tuesday’s cookie exchange at work. Quintuple chocolate again this year. That’s two types of cocoa, three types of chocolate chips and a lot of butter, sugar, eggs, etc.

All hail kale!

Anyone who has known me for any length of time knows that if given a choice between something healthy to eat or something really tasty and snacky with questionable nutritional value, I’ll more often than not take the low (nutrition) road. I like candy. I like ice cream. I like chips. I discovered something a…

A few surprising facts about bacon-wrapped hot dogs.

I love bacon. I love good hot dogs. I’ve had bacon ON hot dogs before, but never actually wrapped the tube steaks in bacon. That changed today. I learned a few things, though: This takes work. Wrapping 8 hot dogs took over 1/2 hour. The slippery factory didn’t help. This takes more bacon than I…

Even in Denver, you have to be specific about Omelets

I’ve been to plenty of cities that have a specific food with which they’re identified. Buffalo has chicken wings. Philly has the cheese steak. Memphis his BBQ ribs. And my most recent home town, Denver? The Omelet. Specifically the Denver Omelet. I originally thought that when ordering an omelet in Denver, if you didn’t specify…

Beers to ya!

I like beer. In fact, it’s my preferred adult beverage of choice these days. Sure, I enjoy all sorts of hard liquor and the occasional glass of wine, but beer is my go-to beverage. I’m also picky about my beer. Life is far too short to drink the crappy beer. Sure, I’ll have a Corona…

Yum

This is a meatloaf sandwich. The meatloaf is beef, pork, and elk, made with lots of onions, a few eggs, and some rice flour to bind it. It’s on toasted gluten-free bread with some mayo, a bit of ketchup and slices of heirloom tomato. Yes, it’s as tasty as it looks.

Tasty Memories

It’s no secret I love food. I also love photography. Unfortunately, I eat more than I take pictures. I haven’t really touched my “good” camera since we moved to Colorado. That’s about to change. I got it out of its bag, set up the tripod, and am charging the batteries. Photos to follow. While setting…
