    Looks good. Never tried salmon with a spicy glaze. Sounds intriguing...T

    It’s a favorite around our house.

    Fine layer of sriracha, fine layer of mayo and then a very light layer of brown sugar: Cooked on the grill on cedar plank.

    I had ribs last night from a CDN chain restaurant called Montana's. Its o.k. for a chain restaurant. https://www.montanas.ca/

    Side note: when I lived near Toronto Doug Flutie lived in the same neighborhood. Would bumped into him every time I went to Montana's there.

    Tonight's menu is grilled T-bone and side of corn on the cobb. The store sells their steaks in a pack of two. Bought two packs. I'm going to try Atkins again and just eat red meats.

    Sriracha plus sugar, heat + sweet, like that. I assume the mayo is a binder?
    With my wife, I can get away with cayenne powder - specifically Tony Chachere's Cajun seasoning - if a) I don't tell her it is in there, and b) I don't overdo it! Anything north of that on the Scoville scale, and it's skunk eye time from the bride!

    Homemade Ramen last night. Modeled after what I thought was the best batch we had (in a railway station in Kanazawa of all places) when we visited Japan years back. The broth is water, a little teriyaki sauce, a hunk of ginger (for ease of removal later), and 2 cloves of garlic powder, basil, parsley & cilantro (all dried). Once that was refluxing, I added in diced red onions (no scallions), celery (no bok choy), jicama (no daikon radish) & carrots (cuz we had some). Separately, I hard boiled 2 eggs. Let the soup simmer until celery was tender. At the end, brought it to a hard boil, stirred in some shaved beef (on sale @ Kroger + coupon; cha-ching! :D) , then brought it back to a boil. Poured this over 2 packs of Ramen. Let sit a few minutes until noodles soft. Put the boiled egg (halved) on top. Served. Shouted "Irasshaimase!" a couple of time for authenticity. Tasty!

    Dessert was fresh baked chocolate chip cookies that our new neighbors brought over!
    I may have to relax my "ignore the neighbors" policy!

    yes, mayo for binding and a little moisture. Just a very thin layer of all 3. The sriracha really only adds a little heat. Can also sprinkle herbs instead of sweet.

    It feels hot for us again. Don't feel like cooking over a hot grill. Think I'll get tuna and salmon sashimi with some rolls. Only take out that fits with my on again diet.

    I think we ate at Jack in the Box once, when we moved to Texas almost 20 years ago. I don't remember much about it. There is one about a mile from our house; never seems to be more than a couple of people in there.

    What's good at JIB? And, don't say tacos. I ain't eating Jack in the Box tacos!

    First restaurant woohoo!

    Our April reservation to Pearl Morissette kept getting pushed and finally happened last night.

    Date night = electronics ban so no pics

    As always it was worth it!

    What I like about this place is they make juices to compliment each course so if you don’t drink you can still join In the wine pairing. Fantastic!

    JIB isn't that bad, but better fast food around. Despite being another hot day, going to grill my T-bone.

    I have another T-bone, but don't feel like grilling. Craving Chinese food, but the best Chinese place here is closed Mondays. Might get fish tacos instead.

    Ended up getting salmon and tuna sashimi with several orders of rolls. California, chopped scallop and some special rolls can't remember the name of. I ate too much.

    So much for the diet. Did Pizza Hut with my brother. Large meat lovers and chicken wings. Brother paid and likes their chicken wings, hence Pizza Hut. Tonight its either a t-bone with corn on the cobb or a rib eye. My mom has also made a batch of spaghetti sauce, picking up my portion latter today. I'll have that tomorrow.

    Lost summer for me (won’t depress the thread with details), so little cooking and little good food.

    An exception was when my brother and his wife visited me and we used the little charcoal grill at my airBnB to do up some ribeyes and potato’s.

    Look how big the steaks were! (See large nearby idaho potatoes for scale) They came on the bone and these steaks are after I sliced two humongous steaks into 4 thinner steaks. The result was still over 1.25lb per steak.
