I have a confession then :/:. About twice a month the last few months I've been getting alaskan king crab legs and not just like half a dozen. Eat til I'm stuffed. A light salad and as many crab legs as you can eat. Damn I'm spoiled.

probably depend on what you served as a side dish....






ha!





my fave dinner;
medium rare, 1.25" thick, about 3/4 pound new york strip or rib eye steak, steamed new potatoes with a bit of butter and garlic, spinach salad with home made dressing (3 parts extra virgin olive oil, 1 part lemon juice, one TBSP dijon mustard, sea salt and black pepper to taste, shookened up in a mason jar), a small glass of crown royal limited with one mineral water ice cube, dessert is one scoop vanilla bean ice cream with a small shortbread cookie.

not the healthiest of meals but with reasonable portions, not the worst either. :) oh, and to make it the best, I want my wifey sitting with me having HER fave dinner, which I couldnt tell you what that is. :D

A repeat of Valentines Day dinner:

Char grilled bacon wrapped filet, new potatoes steamed on the grill, corn on the cob, steamed on the grill then cut off the cob, salad with a loaf of french bread. YUM. I could substitute the new potatoes with mashed and be just as happy!

It all sounds good to me except for the alaskan king crab. Dungeness crab is much better

I am pretty sure for dungeoness you eat the legs and claws too. the few times I have bought them I have gotten the fishmonger to 'debrain / gut' them right there and then.

Maybe it's Blue Crab I'm thinking of ? No claws hardly a'tall, just a roasted calcium bod. Ugh. No thanks.

Moose Tenderloin with Morel mushrooms. Mushroom gravy over mashed potatoes w/chives. Steamed Asparagus with real butter and a pinch of salt. Maybe some nice baked garlic bred with butter, herbs & cheese with the meal. And a quality beverage (single malt scotch) after the meal and before dessert!


And for dessert:
An Apple with core removed & peeled, dipped in lemon juice to keep it from turning brown. Then spiral cut (warmed up) and sprinkled with cinnamon & sugar and lightly drizzled with chocolate sauce. Served with French Vanilla ice cream!


Its simple but very tasty !!!
