    This is what's on my plate tonight. I'm rather satisfied with how my food came out.

    This morning I cooked four slices of thick cut bacon and then cooked some venison loin in the bacon fat. Then I poured off the fat and deglazed the pan with mirin and tossed in some seasoned salt and chipotle powder and poured the sauce over the venison.

    Yesterday I sprinkled some sea scallops with a blend of saffron, fennel pollen, and habanero and sauteed them in coconut oil. I deglazed the pan with mirin and poured the sauce over the scallops.

    You had me in your corner until you mentioned licorice ice cream. Licorice is the only flavor I absolutely find repulsive...

    More for me then!

    It's actually quite a bland licorice, and fresh (so not too much aniseed flavour). It's more for texture and is dwarfed by the cognac sauce and toffee icon_smile.gif

    My dad owned two corvairs, a '63 and a '69, both of them convertibles. When it came time to replace the '69, there were no more American made convertibles, so he had a ground up restoration done on it, and he drove it until it again got too old. At that point, he got a Chrysler convertible.

    Nothing too glam on my plate this morning: 3 pieces of uncured thick-cut bacon and five eggs fried over easy in the bacon fat. The eggs are local, from the farmers market.

    Breakfast is the only meal in which I don't go all out. I tend to eat the same things every day, which are usually some type of hot cereal and some small roll with jam, Nutella, or honey.

    Today's breakfast was half a bolillo with Nutella and some strawberries.

    sounds like my daily breakfast, but I always put spinach in there.

    This morning I had one of my faves: boneless leg of lamb marinated in fresh rosemary, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, and seasoned salt, and gently sauteed in a pan over low heat. Three raw carrots on the side.

    Here's what's not on my plate today: morels. We finally got some warm weather, so I suited up in my Filson Double Tin (impervious to thorns) and went out to my shrooming grounds. Not one single morel to be found. I probably should have gone out a few weeks ago, even though it was chilly.

    One of the best years was 2003:
