I was at the fair today. Holy crap was it packed! I have never seen that many people their before. I mean there were literally 100,000 plus people maybe even 150,000!

And I feel sick from eating all the fried food on a stick.

Interesting. I did four years at the Sacher Hotel in Vienna, Austria as a "Lehrling." My specalties were Linzer Schnitten, Sacher Torte and Dobosh Torte. I got out of the profession when I discovered I was really a "Feinschmecker" and fell victim due to a large weight gain.

Steak & Baker; very simple meal of fresh seasonal foods



Cold salad of homegrown chopped tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, homegrown sliced cucumber, homegrown green peppers, chopped white onion, and chopped homegrown Italian flat leaf parsley. Seasoned and dressed with seasalt and fresh cracked black pepper, EVOO, and vintage Modena balsamic vinegar.



The served plate. Grilled marinated sirloin, loaded baked potato (butter/cracked black pepper/crumbled bacon/sourcream with homegrown chives and garlic powder), steamed green beans dressed with EVOO, seasoned with seasoning salt and fresh cracked black pepper, and finished with toasted sliced almonds. Glass of cab. Yum. Not shown: spaniels with tongues hanging down to knees.

Detail of cook on steak:



SWMBO's steak was finished to medium in microwave and then slathered in Heinz 57 as is her preference. She had a big glass of moo. The spaniels were not disappointed.

Glass of cab. Not so bad.

Fried rice made from leftovers.



Used to like cooking when I was in college, but now kitchen is way too small for cooking. Also miss the fresh fruits and vegetables I used to get at weekly farmer's market. Imported fruits don't taste the same as fruits pluck when ripe

Home alone. Hell of a day. With my neuro symptoms last night, SWMBO had her diagnostics manual out on the table when I got up; pinched nerve at C6 and orders to see my doc. After my quarterly haircut, doc got me in; two appointments on one shower and shave (Sweet!). X-Rays and exam confirms; 6 to 8 weeks if I'm good. When have I been good? Then on to arranging for a sitter at the nursing home for my 86-year-old dad with dementia. *sigh* Try to keep him from being so anxious.

SWMBO is off to family things for the weekend, so it's me with the girls. Dinner:



Yes, they got some. Now on to Frisbee, walk, and snuggles.

Another evening without Adult Supervision. Music: Brad Mehldau, Mehldau/Metheny, Adam Rogers, Peter Bernstein, and David Parsons (). The served plate:



Grilled lamb (sea salt, fresh cracked black pepper, oregano garlic powder) with mint sauce, baked stuffed potato (new season russet/sea salt/fresh cracked black pepper/butter/crumbled bacon/sour cream/homegrown chives), vegetable medley dressed with EVOO and seasoned with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper. Glass of cab. Spaniels feasted on lamb and bones. Yum!

Note: SWMBO will go for (and has developed a preference for) ground lamb in red pasta meat sauce, meatloaf, and various casseroles. But not grilled lamb or veal by itself. Baby animals, you know. (Too much Disney! )

I've never stayed out in the sun for long enough, but one time I thought I smelled bacon.

Marinated in EVOO, vintage balsamic, and worchestershire skinless boneless chicken breast seasoned with seasalt and fresh cracked black pepper, poultry herbs and smoked Spanish paprika sauteed in EVOO with garlic until carmelized. The meat:

I seldom do cook myself, sometimes fast noddles?

I made a tasty pulled pork a few days ago, and threw together a Hummus today we'll see how it turns out tomorrow. I wonder if 4 cloves of garlic is too much for one can of chickpeas? MMmmmm... garlic.
