    What dinner do you wish you had more often?

    For me, it was last night's "chef's salad" which here doesn't not
    include the hard-boiled eggs I see in most recipes. Mine was green leaf
    lettuce, red onion, and red peppers, plus diced ham, salami, and
    provolone cheese, and topped with red wine vinegar, olive oil, and fresh
    ground black pepper.

    Always a delightful meal to have - everything I like, nothing I don't,
    and a fine way to get your veggies. It always _seems_ like it's going
    to be a pain in the arse to make, but when you consider the fact that
    you don't have to cook anything (the salami, ham, and provolone were all
    in the 'frig), it really just takes 5-10 minutes to prepare.

    Down sides? Well, it's not hot if you like a hot dinner, but as the
    weather gets warmer here, this seems more and more a good dinner. Bake
    up some dinner rolls to go along with it if you like.

    Mrs. likes lamb chops with bernaise sauce and grilled duck. I like standing

    I wish I could have Dinner at Antoine's in New Orleans. Pom Frites,
    Oysters Foch, Tournados of Beef, a good red wine,
    and the best service .....ever...from a waiter you've known for
    years. Old school, perfection. One big thing I miss about not
    living there anymore.

    That does sound delicious!

    For me, it would be my absolute favorite; a meal of:

    Seaweed salad
    http://tiny.cc/yk69d

    Miso Soup
    http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi.../Miso_soup.jpg

    Hiyashi Chuka Noodles with Sesame Flavored Dressing
    http://0.tqn.com/d/japanesefood/1/0/...omedaremed.jpg

    All types of sushi, including Oshizushi
    http://minami-mie.info/images/eat/oshizushi.jpg

    Nigirizushi
    http://tiny.cc/4g5d2

    and Gukenzushi
    http://tiny.cc/5ple4


    It's full of veggies, broth and fish loaded with Omega3

    Each part of the meal is colorful and has a distinct flavor of the
    blend of it's ingredients. Some is crunchy, some is soft and some has
    both soft and crunchy.

    Those pics just made me very, very hungry....haha

    That's our fall back meal in the spring and summer if we run out of

    Haven't had this for years. Too many carbs! But... Whole pinto bean

    Over the last few years I have been getting boneless legs. Still a lot
    for one person, but the leftovers make a great curry. As much as I like
    leg of lamb, if it were just for me, I would stick to lamb loin chops.

    So you're calling his meal "not a real dinner"?

    As far as salads go, I need more cobb salads. Greens, avocado, blue
    cheese, chicken (or turkey), and bacon. I suppose that's not a real
    salad, just like my cornbread is not real cornbread.

    I suppose you must be considering meals you are allowed to eat :-( I
    haven't had a large steak with french fries in over 20 years but I would
    like it "more often". I would accompany it with a green salad with
    garlic infused olive oil and vinegar dressing.

    I just meant that "wouda, shoulda, coulda" meal, the one that's really
    not hard to make but you somehow never get around to it often enough.
    Certainly there are plenty of restaurant meals I'd love to have more
    often but don't because I can't afford the money or the time.

    Why haven't you had a large steak with fries in so long? Health
    reasons?

    No point in asking. Were there a real reason it would have been given
    with the obviously outrageous statement (20 years). Any reason given
    now that you asked won't be the truth. Were it health reasons he
    would not have said "*large* steak", WTF large means. Even in prison
    they serve tube steak. LOL

    Alright. As I seem to mention periodically here, there is a lot of new
    thought on this subject, and if cholesterol is your reasoning, you might
    read up on things a bit to take in some of the opinions that contradict
    the old wisdom about limiting dietary cholesterol.

    Anyway, once in a while, it wouldn't hurt you, I'm sure. Probably even
    a once a month steak and fries dinner wouldn't change your health for
    the worse, and it just might help.

    Best of luck to you, whatever you do.
