Food Porn and Virtual Potluck

Today it's all food, all the time!

First of all, TOG and I had our weekly at the Pub last night. They have a new specials menu, which they do monthly. I came THIS CLOSE to having the Monte Christo sandwich... but Khava (on the right)

kept saying how it was a heart attack on a plate. I was trying to get a shot of it, but the prep area was really busy last night and it wasn't a good idea. Here's what I settled on....

I did not eat the cilantro slaw, I only like it on the stout pulled pork sandwich. I did eat the sweet potato fries and stout sauced ribs though! And the beans were to die for! On the left, you see my cider, to the right is TOG's ale... Unintention-ale. Apparently they didn't mean to make it, but TOG thought it was excellent! Here's what TOG had:

I hear it was spicy! Jerked Chicken Salad with jalapeno cornbread croutons. And, that's not cheese shaved on there, it's coconut! TOG said other than the avocado, there wasn't a cool place in the salad!

It's also ECM's virtual potluck today! I'm so excited! I've really dithered about what to bring this week. Because it's been so hectic the last few days, I didn't research something new and exciting, so I'm falling back on my tried and true stuff. Being proficient at soups, I thought I'd whip another batch of my infamous corn chowder. However, it's probably nicer weather down at ECM's and soup might be a little heavy on a warm day. I thought I'd better stick to something a little more summer-y... My fabulous tarragon potato salad!

Final

Yum! This will go with anything! burgers, bbq chicken, pulled pork, ribs! I'm getting hungry already! I hope we're grillin'!

Time to get dressed and hit the road for ECM's house. I'd like to request some Brian Setzer tunes for a fun weekend get-together and I'm really looking forward to having several one of Noble Pig's cocktails! And MPM brought the most adorable cocktail napkins! You can check out all the great food and beverages at Evil Chef Mom's site. She'll have all the links! You're gonna be there, right?

Happy Saturday! Asthmagirl out!
