🍝 Doomstead Diner Dinner Special: 12/19/2018

ANTHONY!

It's Pasta Night here again at the Italian North end of the Luxury Villa on the Brazilian Praia, and we went the "Full Itie" tonight.  Julia provided the Soup and the Dessert, I made the Pasta and the Antipasto Platter.  We collaborated on the choice of Wine, a Pinot Grigio tonight.  Julia made the dessert, I'm not good with baking desserts.

We waited for dinner until Amelia got back from Embraer, then it was serious CHOW DOWN time! 😋

Tomorrow we're going to get out of the digs and let somebody else do the cooking and cleanup.  Getting a little Cabin Fever here.

For most of us this morning we had some great Beach Food this morning on the Praia, except for Amelia who had her breakfast in the Executive Dining room of Embraer.


After Breakfast for the rest of us, back into the water for more body surfing!  :icon_sunny:  Surf's UP!  Bigger waves today!  Hang 10!

The waves this morning were GREAT! :icon_sunny:  However, by around 10 AM they started to get too HUGE for Cripples, as I found out the hard way.


Fortunately, Natasha was watching through Binoculars from shore and swam out to Save Me.  Among her other talents she is World Class in the 100M Freestyle,  100M Butterfly and 400 IM.  She swam for Canada under a pseudonym prior to coming to work for the Diner last year.

After my Rescue, we picked up some more great Beach Food before heading back into the Air Conditioned comfort of the Villa.  Amelia had lunch again in the Excutive Dining Room of Embrear

We picked up Amelia at the Embraer Plant at 5PM  in the Chopper and did a quick fly over to Sao Paolo for Dinner.  We of course had to try one of the Churrascaria's in town as our first Dinner out in town.  We picked the Vento Aragano for this expedition into serious Meat Feasting.

Great meats, easily as good as the best Churrascaria's in Rio.

Tomorrow begins the Diner Solstice Festival, so we will be on hiatus here in the Menu Thread until the Festival is over.  I'll fill you in on the happenings in 2019 when we return.  Happy Eating Diners!

The Diner Menu is BACK!

The Menu has been on hiatus since the Diner Winter Solstice Festival began way back on December 21st.  I was also a little pooped from that exercise to do more searching down of foods to offer up for consumption here so I took a break.  However, the Meatosaurus and Cheeseosaurus threads have filled the food Jones quite well in the interim.

When we last left our group of intrepid Foodie Jet Setters, they were down in Brazil having upgrades done on Cassandra II, and whiling away the days body surfing and pigging out on great Brazilian food.  I'll fill in more on the trip as we move along here.  We're back in Bar Harbor at the Diner Home Base, and it's great to be back with our friends.  John at the Bar is a friend of mine, and he gets me my drinks for free.  Billy is at the Piano working for tips, and Davey is still in the Navy and probably will be for life.

Another thing about returning home is that it's time for some Comfort Food of good old fashioned Home Cooking, rather than themany fancy recipes and gourmet dishes we consumed on the last global excursion.  This week we're going to focus on the Basic Breakfast, which for me always has Eggs & a Breakfast Meat, and then usually Hash Browns if it is a sit down breakfast, and a toasted English Muffin.  However, you can substitute pancakes for the Hash Browns, Biscuits & Gravy etc if you like.  If you start to add more than that, you're out of the realm of the basic breakfast and now talking about the BIG BREAKFAST.

In this series, I'll go through the most common ways I fixed my eggs over the years, beginning with the most common, Bacon & Eggs Over EZ.  Also a quick tutorial video on how to cook good Eggs OE.  Non-stick pans make this a lot easier, and also easier to flip 1 egg than 2, but it looks done right to me not over cooked and crispy brown anywhere.

Off to France!

The Culinary Team is on the road (actually in the air) again after the upgrades done on Cassandra II down in Brazil.  We took a ouple of weeks off from travelling back home at the Diner HQ in Bar Harbor, eating some good home cooked style Amerikan Comfort foods and of course the fabulous fresh seafood available right off the boat from our own Fishing trawlers and Downeasters.  As good as Home Cookin' is though, the gang had a hankering to give Cassandra II the Full Test for another Circumnavigation.  Extra Tanks installed, she can now make the Japan-Hawaii hop with fuel to spare!  :icon_sunny:

First stop in Paris going East around the Globe this time for another meeting with Soros over breakfast, further fleshing out the plans for upgrading Diner HQ and purchasing the property across the street from the Marina for a brand new Luxury Hotel, Restaurant & Convention Center for the Filthy Rich.  Soros decided he did not want to renovate the old buildings, but just put up a whole new one.  He's got his Architects working on plans now to build a Hotel a Saudi Prince would be proud to stay in, and would pay through the nose for it too!  I couldn't argue with that logic, although it's definitely pricier to do it this way.  For Soros though, this is Pocket Change.  I didn't argue with him, I just nodded my head and dove into a fabulous French Omelet🍳.

Here's a little instructional video for you on making the Perfect French Omelet🍳.

The Diner Signature Breakfast Omelet®

This morning we are going to CONSUME the Diner Signature Omelet® for Breakfast!  :icon_sunny:    Here is the final product, not the whole cooking show for the Omelet, which I will publish around the 7th Anniversary of the Doomstead Diner, arriving on February 12th, also by coincidence my mother's Birthday a few years earlier in 1929, and I think that is also "Honest Abe" Lincoln's brithday too!

Hope you enjoy the meal.

It's pretty incredible the number of otherwise decent restaurants that can't poach an egg without overcooking it. It makes ordering Eggs Benedict tricky, if you're married to a Virgo.
What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.
