    I had been craving a good burger lately so I threw some together tonight! Unfortunately I had no bacon though :(.

    In the burgers went shredded manchego cheese, bread crumbs, garlic, onion and an egg as an emulsifier. Overall, I was very happy :).

    Tonight was nothing interesting but the other night I made Scallops in a tarragon butter sauce, angel hair pasta in a scallion sauce and an oven cooked Chateaubriand with a red wine shallot sauce. I was more than pleased with how the meal turned out. Sadly, the bottle of Cos d'Estournel that I was looking forward to drinking with the beef was corked. Drank a bottle of Whitehall Lane Cabernet instead. All in all a good night.

    Monday night I sauteed chicken breast with thyme and lemon, steamed broccoli, and oven-roasted some Yukon potatoes with rosemary, salt, pepper, and olive-oil.

    It was really quite good.

    +1! One of those popped up in my area recently, so I tried it. The burger tasted too plain and there wasn't anything smashing about the place.

    Made a burger. With the cheese in the center - Jucy Lucy they call them in Minneapolis.

    Was AWESOME. Super melted cheese and the burger was super moist, I think the juices from the ground chuck pooled into the cavity between the two thin patties.

    I didn't take a picture, but I'll make another tomorrow at lunch now that I know what I'm doing.

    Nice work sir. Speaking of truffle oil...

    Last night I made some simple sauteed scallops with this shrimp and truffle risotto. It was out of this world. My stomach hurt for about an hour because I couldn't stop myself from eating every single bite and there was a lot of it. I couldn't let any of it go to waste. :D

    http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Seared-Scallops-on-Shrimp-and-Truffle-Risotto-108544

    Girl overcooked the scallops by a fair amount (I shoot for just lightly caramelized) but they were still delicious. I need to work on my food photography skills as this photo doesn't do it justice.

    A couple modifications to the recipe:

    1) The recipe calls for 3x8 oz bottles of clam juice. I followed a suggeston from the reviews section and did 2x8 oz bottles of clam juice, 8 oz of water and simmered the shrimp shells in the broth.

    2) I added thinly sliced cremini mushrooms to the recipe and started them at the same time as the onions.

    3) I stirred in three-ish tablespoons of parmigiano at the very end right before plating it. be careful here as you can destroy the creamy consistency very easily by adding too much cheese too fast. Better to add slowly, mix, taste, and add a little more if needed.
