3. I am going to repeat the killer Caesar Salad we had last night.

No chance of vampires getting us that is for sure!

Then it's clean out the fridge - leftover steak, chicken, cauliflower and sweet potatoes.

Oh, and rice.

That should do it.

Off to the *big* city tomorrow.

6. salmon steaks and salmon pinwheels

The pinwheels have stuffing.

I have a very bad cough and learned that salmon is good for cleaning out the lungs. I am also drinking thyme tea that I combined with raspberry tea.

Salad.

I'm also roasting tomatoes.

7. chicken pot pie

Taking pot pies made from scratch and unbaked in ramekins to my friend whose baby is having surgery so they can bake them later. Chicken breasts, potatoes, onion, celery, red pepper, fresh carrots and green beans, frozen peas and corn, bacon and parsley in a white sauce of butter, flour, chicken broth and milk. Pie dough from scratch covering ramekins and about an inch over top.
And fresh fruit in gelatin made with oj and pineapple juice.

10. Scalloped chicken, broccoli mix and salad.

Alas, no dessert. Maybe I'll thaw some cupcakes I've had in the freezer since Thanksgiving.

11. Going with Panko Salmon

With coconut curried lentils, with some frozen veggies.

These lentils have been the bane of my existence. I had eaten at a fantastic restaurant and one of the courses had these amazing lentils that I have been trying to reproduce (without much luck). This will be my 40th or so try.

12. Fillet of Beef...

roasted rare-medium.

Side of chilled asparagus salad with Meyer lemon-Dijon mustard and honey vinaigrette topped with shavings of parmigiano reggiano cheese.

Another side; oven roasted fingerling potatoes with aromatic bay leaves.

14. No...just practice.

My son is a junior in HS attending the Career Technical School for Culinary Arts.

This is an easy prep meal with great, delicious rewards. I used Ina Garten's Fillet of Beef recipe and Alex Guarnaschelli's asparagus salad and fingerling potato recipe. Brett did it all with my coaching.

Hmmm this was sooooooo good! I could of used a spoon for the vinegartte to get every drop!

16. His HS instructor is a CIA NY graduate

Brett plans to attend The New England Culinary Institute in Vermont. Got my fingers crossed.We cook, shop plan all the time. We take "culinary vision quests" on many weekends...such as experiencing different restaurants from dives to great dining or going to the farmers market or visiting local Amish farms..stuff like that. Plus cooking and canning.

17. That's great.

I know a few chefs who have completed these programs and it definitely shows.

It's a tough road, but a wonderfully gratifying one.

Sounds like you are having a great time together, as well.

I am very, very happy for you.
