What's for Dinner, Sat., Sept. 18, 2021

Had a late lunch so dinner might just be a few nibbles off the meal I had at the restaurant, which would be herbed grilled salmon and broccoli with Parmesan.

We ordered every type of appetizer from the menu: shrimp scampi, spinach artichoke dip with pita crisps, calamari, fried ravioli with sauces, stuffed ziti.

For dessert I ordered chocolate mousse which came in at only 240 calories. However, even though I said three times, I want the chocolate mousse and NOT the chocolate mousse cake, the waitress still brought me the latter.

Groan. I said it must be destiny that I have the chocolate mousse cake. I made up for it by only having a few bites. While I should have left it at the table, I took it home and hope I have the discipline to only have one bit a day.

edited to add: this was a lunch with my union buddies. We celebrated the retirement of our chief negotiator.

3. Well, thanks you've done it, forced me to pledge I will order whatever I feel like

on my up-coming trip to New England, and hope I LIKE it, or some of it; my taste buds or something have been wack-o for quite a while, so I seriously appreciate anything that tastes good/decent; chocolate mouse (AND/or cake) sound fine.

NO idea what I'll have for dinner.

4. Catfish

Our supermarket in the Catskills (get it?) has an amazing fish selection and they had catfish. The Landlady(!) made a Cajun rub. Im going to grill it on a cedar board which is a new technique for me.

You soak the 5 X 10 X 1/2 board in water for 30 minutes before use then put it on the grill. I love learning new cooking tricks.

Yellow rice and a tomato salad will fill out the meal. Cookies for dessert.

6. Tried a Beyond Burger for the first time.

Broiled it with shredded three-cheeses and a slice of Heirloom Tomato.

Really good.
