Mrs. Rock made the same thing as part of last night's dinner! We had baked cod with it and a pasta salad.

Now, mix that with scrambled eggs.

A restaurant here in Dallas has begun serving $24 scrambled eggs. There's a spoonful of caviar on top.

Home prepared Hearst Ranch Filet Mignon, grass fed cattle raised on coastal ranch lands in San Simeon, California. Accompanied by baked beets and a nice Tempranillo.

it had been a test-run for dinner tonight, officially inaugurating the new kitchen in the apartment i renovated over the last year. Tonight I went a tad further in two directions: one classic, adding feta cheese to one batch (w/out ginger) and tiny köttbullar to another, asian-esque batch with ginger, soy sauce, and toasted sesame seeds.

Tried a bunch of wines along with it... but most of the whites were beyond the pale; stored too long in an inadequate cellar. Shame, too, because they were a bunch of 2012 Wittmann wines... GBs & Rieslings. (Also: Feth, 2014; most of which were no good, except for a Chardonnay.)
We finally settled on a fine red Cuvee from Argentina that was still good.

Sounds delicious. We'll have to try those recipes

Shame indeed  :(  With Rheinhessen whites, drinking sooner rather than later is recommended.

Tonight, Mrs. Rock excelled. A pasta dish with lobster tails (chopped and whole), stock (made from the lobster shells and veggies), saffron, cream and a dash of Cognac. We drank Champagne (Piper Heidsieck Brut).

Mrs. Rock and I had dinner tonight at the Al Fiume located on the banks of the Rhine in Worms. I had Swordfish Messina (tomato sauce with capers, black olives, garlic, anchovies). Mrs. Rock had the bizarre Pizza Frank (bacon, tuna and gorgonzola). We drank a superb Sicilian Nero d'avola.

This puts a smile on my cynical old fez. Good stuff.

Mrs. Rock's parents treated us to a superb Greek meal at the Paradies in Lampertheim Germany (Mrs. Rock's home town). I had charcoal grilled Dorade (gilt-head sea bream) and calamari with grilled veggies, fried potatoes and tzatziki. Mrs. Rock had a mixed grill platter with lamb, liver and gyros. We drank a Nemea reserve.

A jointly made dinner tonight. I made a potato salad and helped prepare Mrs. Rock's whole chicken which was roasted on a bed of root vegetables and white wine (which she turned into a delicious sauce). Served with kale fried in pork lard and bacon (turning a healthy dish into a not-so-healthy dish  ;D...but who cares? Life is short, and getting shorter). We drank a 2017 New Zealand Sauvignon blanc (The Ned) and had champagne for dessert (Tarlant Brut Reserve http://www.tarlant.com/en/champagne-brut-reserve.htm )

Danish food. I made Danish meatballs in sour cream dill sauce, and braised cabbage with balsamic, fennel and caraway seeds.

For a moment, I thought you were having this  ;):


I always have some when in Scotland (which is relatively often).

Good evening, NikF!

We love cottage cheese. I take mine with a dollop of strawberry preserves. Mrs. Rock consumes hers straight  ;D
