    So far, so good. Have only tasted them for flavor adjustment. I think they need a bit more cooking and a tad more salt...T

    Monkfish is the one that some folks say if prepared right mimics lobster. They are some seriously ugly mo-fos too. The famous fish throwing place at Pike Place Market in Seattle used to always have one up front. Sometimes they tie a string to the mouth then get people to get close to pose for a pic and pull the string. Hilarity ensued!!

    But yea, even uglier than one of my favorite fish Ling Cod....

    I'm using fresh cauliflower. I would have used frozen riced but couldn't find any at the store the other night when I was there. I've also seen some recipes that use just cheese and eggs to make the crust. I'll probably try a few recipes and see which one I end up liking.

    Stuffed poblano peppers.

    Char the peppers under a high broiler. Let cool a bit, then peel the charred skin. Slit open, de-seed. Stuff. Cover with mozz. Bake at 350 F until cheese is bubbly.

    Stuffing is made of browned ground beef, riced cauliflower, sautéed onions and garlic, few tbsp of salsa, cumin, S&P, grated sharp cheddar.

    Crappy iPhone pic of the final product.

    Wasn't too much trouble to make. Good taste. I took a lot of the membrane out of the wife's, and she was fine with that. I left a bit more membrane on mine for a little more zip.

    I tried two different pizza crusts tonight. One with cauliflower, cheese and egg and one with just cheese and egg. Both were ok. Not sure I'll make either again, but if I do it'll probably be the cheese and egg one. The cauliflower one was too much well..... cauliflower flavor. Imagine that!?! Interestingly I honestly couldn't eat much of either, I took two small slices of each and was done after less than three slices. Just too much cheese I think between the crust and toppings.

    I think if I had made the cheese and egg one thinner, it might have been better. Just too much cheese by the time you put toppings and cheese on top like a real pizza.

    But, I'll try something like this again one of these days. There are some other recipes out there that use almond flour and some other stuff to make it taste more like crust. And yeah, put both under the broiler to brown up the top and the parchment on the one just about burned up!

    After an Epic Day/Night . . .

    Caught a Burlap Bag Full of Lingcod on one & only Deep Sea excursion out of San Simeon. And that was *after* they were fileted.

    Good stuff huh?! I used to go fishing around here as a kid with my uncle, caught mostly little rock cod but would get a Ling Cod once in a great while. Such a good eating fish!

    Not much went wrong IMO. I added some more salt and simmered a couple more hours today while the tri tip was on the smoker.

    Great texture on the beans; they didn't turn to mush with all that simmering. I think minor tweaks I would make for the next batch are a tad more bacon - thick cut if I can find it at the store - and perhaps some liquid smoke. All in all, that was a great recipe you posted; thank you!

    Really good. Nothing wrong with anything we ordered. The dirty rice, a side I ordered had an amazing taste as well . You will love it..

    Both look great! I made tri-tip today too. Did a garlic and horseradish rub and sous vide over night. Marked it on the grill at Dads. Pretty tasty if I do say so myself.

    Perfect level of doneness. Ours came out between medium rare and medium. So, good compromise for wife and for me.

    Brunch at Brennan's. OMG. An event not to be missed. Wife and I did their brunch some years back. As I recall, we also opted for the wine pairings. I think I rolled out of there close to noon & slept until early evening!
