    Hey Mydave - are you referring to the 'frog legs' dish I posted? If so, the restaurant is my house and the chef is my wife (NCSue here) - ;)

    In Winston-Salem, there is a local seafood place (called Sea Products) - rarely, the owner has frozen frog legs - she just sauté the legs w/ oil, fresh garlic, and lemon (may have first dipped them in flour?) - a little 'hotness' would be nice along w/ a herb or two? Dave :)

    Mydave--it's not often that I see someone comment on bitter melon since it is an Asian vegetable. My parents cook it all the time-stir frying it with pork/shrimp/onions and eaten as a main dish with jasmine rice or as a side. I also eat/cook with it too.

    My dad also grows bitter melon in his garden, though this year he didn't have time. They grow so odd that you have to create a high fencing to allow it to dangle.

    Fortunately, I can pick up bitter melon at our local international market. It is an acquired taste, but is very good and healthy! :)

    off to the local pub tonight and really looking forward to a big piece of steak. Yes, I know, boring choice but I don't get steak that often. I might have some red wine and then an ice-cream sundae for afters! With the lovely weather we have had lately, it has been salad, salad, salad... I'd better go get dressed!

    I didn't have steak in the end. I had a lamb shank with rosemary and red wine gravy, mashed potato and vegetables. I had the double choc sundae to finish. Very nice and the company was great.

    Sounds delish! Never had lamb shank, but Hayles you would love the beef tenderloins at Mitchell's-where we ate. Quite flavorful and so tender! :)

    I took my husband and my SIL out to dinner last Tuesday and I had sautéed Perch, redskin pots, and grilled veggies!

    It was their bday, so we had upside down pineapple cake with vanilla ice cream! It was all yummy!

    I love lamb shanks cooked slow for mouth watering tenderness, and the way you had that Hayley would be perfection :)
    And now have to put that out of my mind, an hour yet to dinner. (a casserole done in a pressure cooker with vegies...yesss:p)
    ...Edit: oops, lost the multi quote by not tapping on "Insert Quotes" button. Need more practice as that's a good feature of this new software. ALSO love your new avatar Hayley!

    Susan & I just returned from the Finger Lakes area of New York State - I'll be starting a travelogue for those interested in unique natural beauty & in wine!

    But the one minor disappointment was the food (a common complaint from visitors to the area) - two lunches stand out (and one was in the Philadelphia airport on our way home). At the Glenora Winery on Seneca Lake (west shore) we shared a wonderful caesar salad and a delicious smoked salmon BLT - the fish was smoked on premises - had wines made on the property and a gorgeous view of the lake (have a couple of pics in the upcoming thread),

    In the Philly airport, there is a branch of Legal Seafoods - we've eaten at many of their restaurants over the years (most in New England and along the east coast USA) - shared a half dozen oysters and clams on the half shell (clams were Little Necks & Cherrystones) - superb w/ the clams having that wonderful ocean flavor; THEN, we usually share a lobster roll but decided this would be an early dinner, so ordered one each - below a pic from the web - bun was soft buttered and toasted on the grill & the lobster was abundant - GREAT ending to a delightful trip. Dave :)

    Hee hee. I love it too, OB! That lamb was delicious. Hmmm? Off out tomorrow as well. What should I go for this time?
