    Had a roast chicken this week and kept the carcass, there is a surprisingly large amount of meat left after you've carved off the big bits. So I made some chicken soup tonight while the lady was out.

    Gonna curry half of it with a little coconut milk and some yellow curry and add some rice. The rest will get some noodles and then I'll freeze it.

    Have another whole chicken in the fridge which I think will get a beer can chicken treatment. Never done that before so I'll give it a try. May pop to Cabelas and see if they have the Emeril cast iron tray. Anyone tried it? Not big on shoving an aluminum can in my food.

    A sack of oysters, charbroiled.

    Made fresh herb butter (butter, fresh oregano, fresh basil, fresh garlic chives, lemon zest, garlic, salt, pepper). Shucked the oysters, then each oyster in the half shell got a dollop of herb butter and a sprinkling of parmigiano, then onto the fire.

    Sounds like some of you folks got your 'cook on' too. I really enjoy cooking, but I am limited to what I can turn out because my lady is super fussy and complains about anything that is too spicy or has garlic or is not meat and carbs!

    Have to say. I do find parallels with cooking and music. It's all about the ensemble and not the individual parts. A tasty solo item needs to be backed up by a solid band of flavors.

    We're rockers, neither us nor anyone in the house cooks, we don't eat out, or order in... we eat cereal or whatever's easy!

    Seasoned boneless chicken breasts, charcoal grilled and thinly sliced over a bed of finely shredded romaine lettuce. Garnish with sliced green olives and grated mozzarella. Finish with a sparse application of what else? Ranch dressing! One of my favorite reasonably healthy dinners.

    not sure about tonight yet, but a few nights ago I made an old standby I copped from a local fish joint that my wife loves:

    baked Icelandic cod on top of spicy chorizo topped with pickled jalapeño relish
    black beans
    roasted rosemary red potatoes
    Herradura jalapeño margaritas

    try it
