More Food Tilt?

Mookie tonight. 6 more events to go (an extra Riverchasers HORSE on Sunday).

I'll probably play in the 50-50 and 26k as well... because I multi-table like a champ! No, wait... I suck at multitabling. At least I have a token for the 26k.

Anyway, enough poker. More food talk! If you don't like it... tough. This is my blog and I like cooking as much as I like poker. Except I'm a better cook than poker player.

I was debating all day on what tonight's dinner will be. Do I go back to my well of Elk meat? Maybe an elk burger, or pasta with chicken and honey-garlic elk sausage? I also had a craving for some Thai from across the street - it would be quick and easy. Maybe I'd throw together some orange chicken again? Spicy chicken caesar perhaps? Hmm.

Then I ate some dark chocolate and a light turned on. Tonight will be a spicy roasted chicken breast (bone-in if I can find some) with dark chocolate and maybe raspberries or even cherries. I think for the 3rd straight night that zucchini will work well as a vegetable. Maybe green beans if they look decent. As for the rest, I'm leaning towards a thin pasta (spaghetti perhaps, maybe angel hair, depends what I've got... I don't think my lemon linguine will work) in butter and garlic as a base for the chicken.

Dessert - I've still got a ton of fruit to get through, so a simple compote of strawberries, raspberries, cherries and watermelon should work well. Maybe a kiwi too.

Gotta think that calls for either a Baileys concoction or wine. I may be able to get a nice white or rose (rare these days, but I think it'll work with this) chilled in time.

Whaddya think?

I'll probably scarf down some leftovers before my ball game tonight. Good luck in the 50/50, I really want to get in on that action soon.

The menu sounds wonderful, you da man Chef A.

I've never tried elk before, I wonder if it is lean or fatty?

I'll check back later.

Elk is incredibly lean. High protein, low fat, low calorie. It was described to me as a "clean" meat, and I can't think of a better description.

Astin, didnt know you liked to cook. Cooking and baking are two of my fav pastimes.. I have way to many cookbooks. Nothing like a good set of knives.

You betcha IG, drives me nuts when I don't get a chance to cook or bake. And I of course love my knives and books.
