Yeah, forget counting the years - let's talk about counting the amount of royalties you must've earned.   :laugh:

They haven't paid me a damn cent for my image and exploits. I should sue.

Tell them you'll accept it in spam rations?  ;D

I'd rather have K- and C-rations  ;D  I ended my time in service consuming MREs in the field but I still fondly remember the C-ration cans of ham and eggs.

 I had to Google those and wow - no wonder you're so well preserved, Sarge. ;D

Actually, that's quite interesting. 'Canned Spread'? The mind boggles... :)

I've been retired for over twenty-five years but I think some of those rations haven't come out yet. There was a rumor that the "food" in those rations was designed for that very purpose  ;D

Mrs. Rock excelled for a second night in a row, with two new recipes: a black salsify cream soup with saffron and saffron infused vinegar; and a Cajun chicken/avocado sandwich with a mayonaise/garlic/lime sauce. We had the saffron vinegar also as an aperitif. Drank a Sekt (German sparkling wine) from Schloss Wachenheim.




It will be my turn to cook tomorrow night. I'll probably order pizza  ;D

As ever, Mrs. Rock serves up a fine platter. Good stuff. :)

Tonight I ate mince and tatties. I planned to take a photo, but that was superceded at the last moment by greed. ;D

Tatties, I understand (I think  ;) ) but what is mince...mincemeat?

Yeah, that's it. But the carrots are an unheard of exotic addition, far too posh for the likes of me...  ;D

I'm surprised that I have; No.10, at that. But Hia Franko looks really interesting, actually... would be an excellent goal for a bike-tour from Klagenfurt, I imagine... through that national park to a fantastic dinner.
And I'm writing the places in Tokyo down, for later this month. Perhaps I can convince someone with the company credit card to take us there. ;-)

My friends have been to No. 17 (Le Bernardin). I in fact know one person who has been to 10 of the 50 and is a regular at No. 1!!

I haven't been to any of the 100; my girlfriend vetoed a possible visit to No. 66 Estela because she thought the menu not very exciting.

Not sure which is the more surprising inclusion: No. 87 Per Se, recently torched by NYC critics, or No. 88 Selfie - a restaurant called Selfie?!??!?!

Tried a new recipe, cooked it up a few days ago: Mexican Chicken Stew with Chipotle; and Quinoa with Black Beans and Cilantro. Mrs. Rock made the guacamole. We drank San Miguel, a Spanish beer.

Speaking of guacamole, I bought avocados a week ago, had never even tasted them before as far as I know. Good stuff, although I've not done anything fancy with them - on toast with lemon juice and a thin slice of ham works nicely.

The crazy thing is  the saffron and its price.

Yeah, crazy about covers it (although it is labor intensive to produce and I suppose justifies the price...if you like it). We spend a small fortune on it but love its taste, especially in Tandoori chicken, and paella. And apropos saffron, just tonight Mrs. Rock put it in rice. The flavor was faint but discernible but contributed to a very expensive meal that included vintage champagne.
