  1. Last night. Veal Saltimbocca from Serious Eats, Roasted Maitake Mushrooms, Sautéed Broccoli w/garlic. Very easy and tasty.
  2. Tonight will be sheet pan dinner. I am a big fan of these dinners. A big fan of serious eats I have many sheet pans and find these always work well. Roasted red cabbage and red onions with pork loin. All marinated beforehand with maple syrup, cider vinegar, EVOO and grain mustard.
  3. A year later and I'm still on my Concept II rower. I have been averaging about 50-55KM per week which comes out to 4 sessions weekly. Sometimes these sessions are what is keeping me sane. My weight is very stable but it does help battle the daily wine consumption.
  4. Flamant offers take in/delivery Thurs-Sat each week as well as a Wed pop-up. This Saturday we brought in the bouillabaisse for 2 and it was spectacular. I picked up a shopping bag with 7 containers and directions on how to cook/finish it at home. Containers included the broth, vegetables, shellfish, shrimp and 2 types of white fish. After heating the broth, the veggies and other ingredients were added and cooked for 5-6 minutes. This could have easily fed 3-4 but we were gluttons. I choose bouillabaisse as it was a dish I was craving and do not make at home. They offer about 5-6 mea
  5. You reminded me, we did do takeout from Cucina. The bummer is that when my son got back with the order, we discovered they forgot my entree. Not a huge deal as we over ordered and they immediately realized their mistake. Next time I hope to fly to Asheville, drive was good but long.
  6. Let me know how this goes. We want an outdoor kitchen and believe we have selected the cabinets and appliances. We are hiring a designer to create specs and then will need a firm to install, build and manage. Though we are leaning towards stainless cabinets there is work as we want a dummy wall built behind them to create a counter top lip and run electric.
  7. Dull as it is, I probably eat turkey breast 4-5 days each week on top of a salad. Even more on weekends when it is warm outside, a turkey rollup is my go to while sailing. I typically buy and Like Trader Joes all natural Turkey Breast, very think sliced and low salt while full of flavor. This is typically found near the cooked chicken strips and fresh meats, not in the deli area. I recently tried using instacart to deliver Turkey Breast from Wegmans and the Fresh Market. Both were major disappointments as they were salt bombs and thin sliced. Fake Turkey. What is you go to Turke
  8. Spent last week in Asheville with my family. We stayed at a townhouse, hiked and took advantage of the great beer. Funkatorium, Green Man, Burial and Wedge were ll able to seat us safely outside. brought in Curate, ate outside at Duck Taco and inside at Tupelo Honey. All great experiences. Took a cooking class at Asheville Kitchen and was really rewarded when my younger son(27) made desert for his roomies, Bananas Foster he learned in class.
  9. I tried Wegmans from Instacart for the 1st time today. Short Ribs became a large standing rib roast. Tomatlios became green tomatoes. But the brisket I got l is huge and looks great.
  10. Anne Arundel county has ordered all restaurants to cease on premise dining for a period of week weeks starting Dec. 16th. Certainly another blow to a fragile set of businesses.
  11. In Annapolis many restaurants now have tents for additional Covid spaced seating. I am concerned that the air circulation in those tents is not any better then inside. At least one place, Soul, state BYOB for out door dining under the heat lamps. Bring Your Own Blanket. We do try to bring in from a local non-chain establishment once a week. Also part of a biweekly CSA and have already paid for next year. I did become a founding member of our 1st brewpub, Forward Brewing and will do my part to keep them in business. Lastly, I can see the floor in our wine cellar. Consum
  12. Wow, the INN is nice but that rate is crazy. For much less you can charter a 40' catamaran with a captain for a couple of days and go to St. Michaels.
