Dude, you have no idea. I've lived in an apartment for most of the last thirty years, and haven't been able to grill because of it. I used to be OK at it, but now I'm about able to do burgers and dogs. There's a lot of great food in this area, but it isn't really known for BBQ. Slows is OK, but overrated. This shit is the real deal. It's Texas style, and these guys obviously spent some time learning the craft. I don't have much experience with beef ribs, but I like. The brisket was melt in your mouth kind of stuff and by god, the corn bread might have been the best I've had. I don't normally eat before 7 or 8, but the smell was driving me mad. The place usually sells out by 5 PM. Can't believe how big cow ribs are. I'm ready to get horizontal after that meal. I almost feel bad for vegetarians.

Sounds excellent. I told the GF when I move into her place I'm buying a smoker. I'm not sure where I can find one yet, but I'm gonna make it a mission of mine. I've been here 7 years and have only ever been able to use a little hibachi type grill.

I did a four course set menu at a new (to me, it's actually been there for years) restaurant. A friend drove, so I ever got to have drinks. My choices:

CONFIT SUNCHOKES
IBERICO LARDO, TRUFFLE AIOLI, ROASTED HAZELNUT

SLOW POACHED ORGANIC FARM FRESH EGG*
SPRING MUSHROOMS, SPRING PEAS, PUMPERNICKEL CROUTONS

WAGYU RIBEYE
MISO EGGPLANT, MEYER LEMON HARISSA
GRAPEFRUIT MOJO

BUCKWHEAT GROATS PUDDING
CARAMELIZED DARK CHOCOLATE CRUMBLE
BUTTERMILK ICE CREAM, MEIWA KUMQUAT COMPOTE

The service was outstanding, and the food was delicious. I was really pleased with everything I had, and I'm kinda kicking myself for not going sooner. Their menu changes monthly and I'm already looking forward to future visits.

Finally made my way up to this newish BBQ joint in Dearborn. They've been getting s lot of press which is uncommon for a restaurant in Dearborn. They don't do pork for obvious reasons, but the brisket and beef ribs are outstanding. That's one dinosaur rib on the plate. Ridiculously good. Image

THink he mentioned cornbread?

We're going out for dinner to celebrate my Mom's 89th birthday. She's picked a nice spot - it's out in the countryside on a berry farm and they make traditional ukrainian food - pierogies, farmer's sausage, ham - but there's very little for those who don't eat meat. I think I'll order the mushroom soup in a bread bowl and maybe a couple peirogies.

With no retention for Salmon locally it's been a constant stream of Oysters, Prawns, Dungenesss Crab & various Groundfish instead.

These Spot Prawns are done in a vaguely SE Asian fashion-Garlic, Chile, Ginger, Kecap Manis and Thai Sweet Chile sauce over noodles.

My night off from cooking. Prawn with garlic and butter, side with mushroom and broccoli in oyster sauce.

And this!

Not sure what he did with the black bean sauce. He's sleeping now, it was the best part of the meal, so I'm stuffing my face with the leftovers.

Fried Eggplant tonight . . . haven't had it for a while and so I found it exceptionally good. Nice fresh tomato, chilled and sliced was the perfect compliment.

You are a great daughter, not wanting anyone to feel guilty about wasting champagne. The food looks great as well. I really love crepes as long as they aren't too rubbery.

I made a stir fry with bok choi from my garden (first harvest!), white corn, bamboo shoots, chicken, and mushrooms. It was ok, but I used bottled stir fry sauce from Trader Joe's and it was too sweet with the sweet veggies. It also should have had broccoli in it, but mine had gone bad.

Last night I tried something new, "Polish Peppers". It's sliced bow tie style Polish Sausage with sautéed peppers & onion (w/garlic). I served it over a bed of chopped cabbage that I'd lightly sprinkled with wine vinegar. It can be served over sauerkraut if you're so inclined. It was good . . .
