I had a great meal tonight too. We went to a favorite restaurant in the Pfalz, deep in wine country, a forty-five minute drive from our house. It's part of the Mugler winery and is situated in the estate's old coach house. We started with a magnificent cream of mussel and lobster soup and a glass of Mugler's 2006 Chardonnay. Then Mrs. Rock had Pfannekuchen, a local specialty: a thin pancake filled with liverwurst and Blutwurst. I had a steak. We drank a bottle of Mugler's 2005 Spätburgunder (pinot noir). We floated home  ;D

Ah, yes, I believe your only, let's say less than appetizing post.  Another that jumped out was the Shepard's pie.  My mom will still make a batch and send it our way from time to time.  Carrots in one half and peas in the other, as the Mrs. does not care for the later.  Always good.

Hamburger Corey.  My wife will not touch lamb or any other meat she did not eat as a child.

Sarge - sounds like a wonderful meal!  Have not had a German Pinot Noir in ages, but sounds superb w/ you choice of steak - anything 'special' about the beef in that area?

For me tonight, just a quick dinner out at our 'mountain bistro' up the road - had one of the specials for the night, grilled mahi-mahi w/ a light cajun topping along w/ a few veggies (spinach & asparagus, sauteed w/ just some garlic & oil); plus, a few glasses of Pinot Gris from the King Estate in Oregon - simple but delicious!  :)

Someone recently told me that shepherd's pie is made with lamb, and that the variety made with beef is actually cottage pie. I've always had it with beef and we called it shepherd's pie. I guess it depends on where you grew up.

That would seem to make sense....but with beef, why not call it Cowboy pie.  ;)

Anne - hope that you're feeling better soon!  :(

Tonight, wife (Susan) did a wonderful shrimp dish steamed in parchment paper w/ some great spices/herbs + some simple veggies - had some Knunde '06 Viognier, new release that was excellent!  :)

My family have always called cottage pie shepherd's pie as well. Speaking of which, I haven't eaten that in a long time, I will try to make one soon :)

Nothing special about the beef I had at the restaurant. As we've discussed once before in this thread (here or at the old forum), many places in Germany serve Argentinian beef and that's what I had. But our village butcher offers "bio-beef", meaning it's raised locally and naturally, grass fed, no hormones added, etc. When we make hamburgers we usually buy from him. The beef is ground to order. We can see it being made and know it's fresh.
