when i lived in new york, probably my most favorite tradition was having tuesday night dinners. it all started out as me and big d wylie getting some drinks after work, then we would start grabbing dinner. then we would seek out new places to eat. then the ex eventually started to join us, then big d's wife would join too. and it was all very lovely and awesome. great conversation, awesome food, and something to look forward to during the week.
but since being back in the atl, i haven't had the chance to do something like that again. but finally, i think we did it. our own southern tradition.
tuesday night roomie dinner.
sparked by a loss of an good friend, and cvd cooking us a wonderful meal, i suggested that we keep it up. and everyone was on board.
unfortunately there were no pics of that inaugural dinner, which consisted of:
duck fat braised duck legs with mushrooms and potatoes
spinach salad with goat cheese, roasted walnuts, and raspberry vinaigrette
suffice it to say, it was mega-awesome.
then cvd generously offered to cook the second tuesday night roomie dinner: salmon en croute:
look upon it and be jealous.
salmon with a blend of cream cheese, dill, and basil, wrapped in puff pastry, and baked, with roasted asparagus on the side
and for desert, an amazing "s'more" of gram cracker, peanut butter, chocolate all inside a puff pastry with marshmellow fluff on top...like heaven
i'm up this week, and i plan on trying out a new spicy teriyaki wing recipe.
