10:06 pm - Best Food Evar!!!
On the way home from work, I said to Liz, "I could go for a nice steak." And she said, "Why don't we then?" So we went to the Outback. When choosing an appetizer, my eyes fell upon the first choice. Seared Ahi Tuna. The description said, Sashimi styled Yellow Fin tuna, spice rubbed and seared. Served with a soy dressing and wasabi vinaigrette.

Sounded good. So I ordered it. Best food ever! The dressings were fantabulous. I even spilled on my shirt. I could only repeat over and over. "Wow. That was the best food ever!" Everything about it was appealing. The color of the fish, the dark spiced and seared edges, the taste of the dressings, everything. The soy dressing looked like the stuff they give you for the bloomin onion, but it tasted different. And the wasabi vinaigrette was to die for. I couldn't make up my mind which one I liked better. And it's not even as though the fish needed a dressing to be dipped into.

Yeah, yeah, we also had mouthwatering juicy steaks and wonderful sides, blah, blah blah. But man, that tuna was good! Next time, just the tuna and a big chocolaty dessert.

And after we got home, Liz made me smell her BPAL order that came in. She got 12 imps and got 4 free ones. The free ones were not good. There were a few scents I liked, but some that were horrible. Cathedral? Eww. A really interesting one was Destroying Angel. It really smelled like dirt and mushrooms. Very interesting.

Mmmmm. Tuna.

I like it raw or seared - anything cooked further may as well just be tossed in with some mayo and smeared on sandwiches.

Definitely gives me an idea for something to make for dinner at Wellspring next year, I'm pretty sure that Wegman's near Jamestown will have some IQF tuna that I can make. My culinary forte is pan-Asian cuisine, though I'm pretty good at whipping up Italian, Spanish, Polish, Middle Eastern, and American dishes as well. Recipe book? Who needs it? Like my mother, I operate by taste buds. If I've tasted a dish, I can probably replicate it. Might take me a few mistakes in the kitchen, but I'll master it eventually. I had gotten my grandmother's repertoire of soups down years ago, I will be happy to make a pot of chicken soup or somesuch and leave it on the stove all day in case of chilly weather and/or hungry peoples. :)

I've still yet to learn a lot more about Indian cuisine. I love the flavors, but a lot of the spices used are still foreign to my tongue. I will probably need a basic cookbook to learn which spices go in which dishes, and go from there. I can make tandoori chicken if I get the tandoori sauce ready made in a jar, same thing with mint chutney (was introduced to this yummy stuff by Ian and Sue one year) and tamarind sauce.

That's how I make my chili. There is a basic recipe, but I spend a lot of time making sure it tastes just right. So it's a dash of this, a pinch of that.
