    Thankee, Mam! I'm now officially *in* my 60s and looking forward to
    retiring in June.

    Fran is a nice name! I wouldn't be upset.

    Thanks! I went to a restaurant that's been open forever, but I'd
    never been there before. We got a $50 gift certificate to it when our
    car was serviced last time, so we used the gift certificate last
    night. If we'd also brought our rebate check from Verizon, we would
    have walked away w/o paying a dime out of pocket.

    We ordered from their prefix menu. Both of us had a cocktail before
    dinner and my meal was paired with various wines. Hubby ordered
    asparagus soup and I ordered the baby vegetable salad. Both items got
    high very marks from us. I had duck breast & confit, hubby had their
    signature scallops dish (they had just run out of the snapper so
    scallops were substituted). By the time we got to our desserts, we
    were so full we couldn't finish them! Our waiter's name was David,
    and he is someone I recommend asking for by name if anyone decides to
    eat at One Market (San Francisco) in the near future.

    Happy birthday, dahlink.........if that pesky Carol starts to annoy you just
    get out your little voodoo doll of her heater, electric meter, or whatever
    hasn't gone on the fritz this week (have you been reading the cartoon Baby
    Blues, Carol? I think you would relate) and stick a pin in it's miniature
    transistor. That will fix her little red wagon (that is, if her red wagon
    hasn't broken down either!!!!) Love ya, Carol......(blows raspberry in
    Carols general direction, then hums Happy Birthday in Barb's direction -
    since if she sang it, she'd have to pay royalties)

    You say it's your birthday -
    Happy birthday to you...

    Do I have to pay royalties on that one?

    Thanks Kimberly, my birthday celebrating lasted all weekend. I went
    out to dinner on Friday night, the kids came over and cooked me a
    birthday dinner last night and I single handedly kept the economy from
    collapsing today. It was a very good birthday weekend! LOL

    Thanks. I already talked about my restaurant meal on Friday
    night. Saturday night, son wanted to make oven style chicken cordon
    bleu, but I told my DD to talk him into making Chicken Saltimbocca.
    After he heard the recipe, he decided it was similar to what he was
    going to make anyway except there were no bread crumbs and had some
    added spinach.... but it wasn't so "different" he couldn't make the
    mental switch. He made it and I ate it.... oh, boy! I was totally
    satisfied.

    I don't remember which semi-regular poster it is who commented months
    ago that she orders Saltimbocca whenever she sees it, but that's what
    got me started on chicken saltimbocca. I can't recall ever eating
    Saltimbocca before I made it for the first time.

    Here are a bunch of recipes from foodtv....
    http://www.foodnetwork.com/search/Ch...rchType=recipe
    and here's the recipe I begin with. Of course, it's not followed to
    the "T" - but you get the picture. They all look good... maybe I'll
    pick another one to make my "base recipe" after I post this message.


    Chicken Saltimbocca
    Recipe courtesy Giada De Laurentiis

    6 (3-ounce) chicken cutlets, pounded to evenly flatten
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    6 paper-thin slices black forest ham
    1 (10-ounce) box frozen chopped spinach, thawed
    3 tablespoons olive oil
    1/4 cup grated Parmesan
    1 (14-ounce) can low-salt chicken broth
    2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
    whole sage leaves (I have 3 kinds of sage in my garden)

    Place the chicken cutlets flat on the work surface. Sprinkle the
    chicken with salt and pepper. Lay 1 slice of ham and a sage leaf on
    top each chicken cutlet.

    Squeeze the frozen spinach to remove the excess water. Season the
    spinach with salt and pepper. In a small bowl, toss the spinach with
    1 tablespoon of oil to coat.

    Arrange an even, thin layer of spinach atop the prosciutto slices.
    Sprinkle the Parmesan evenly over each. Beginning at the short
    tapered end, roll up each chicken cutlet as for a jellyroll. Secure
    with a toothpick.

    Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in a heavy large skillet over
    high heat. Add the chicken and cook just until golden brown, about 2
    minutes per side. Add the chicken broth and lemon juice, and scrape
    the browned bits off the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon. Bring
    the liquid to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cover and simmer
    until the chicken is just cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes.
    Transfer the chicken to a platter. Simmer the cooking liquid over
    high heat until it is reduced to about 2/3 cup, about 5 minutes.
    Season the cooking liquid with salt and pepper, to taste. Remove
    toothpicks from the chicken. Drizzle the reduced cooking liquid over
    the chicken and serve immediately.
