Woo Dip Harr #SundayFunday

We have been celebrating Chinese New Year for the past two weeks.  Today is the final day of celebration and we are having a party.  Let's start with a dish that was probably not invented or served in China but is commonly found on Chinese Menus here in the USA.

Woo Dip Harr

Woo Dip Harr is butterflied shrimp with bacon served over caramelized onions that are still slightly crisp. So Good!!!!

Grilled Chicken Panini, a Book Review and the Weekly Menu

I just finished reading A Time for Mercy by John Grisham.  This novel has all the same characters that we came to love in A Time to Kill.  It starts off with a family being terrorized by an alcoholic cop who is a hero in town but has a very dark side when he gets on the wrong side of a beer bottle.

Paloma for National Grapefruit Month #FoodieExtravaganza


I'd like to introduce to you Paloma, cousin of Margarita.  Made with Tequila, grapefruit juice, lime juice, simple syrup and club soda, served on the rocks in a salted rim glass.  I think I may prefer this over the popular Margarita.....I've always been a sucker for underdogs.  Cheers!!!

Chicken Tikka Masala inspired by The Hundred Foot Journey and the Weekly Menu #MoviesandMunchies

I made this Chicken Tikka Masala in a slow cooker and it turned out incredibly tender and flavorful with very little effort.
