03/23/2003 Archived Entry: "A Wonderful Week"

Jen has recently left to go back to New York. We had a pretty wonderful week. It was nice getting transported to and from work every day, I must admit. She was a good sport about it and was even sweet enough to pretend that she didn't mind spending Spring Break 2003 in beachless and brisk Woonsocket, Rhode Island.

So between the visiting with Jen and the constant fatigue from last week's bout with the flu I haven't had much time to update this page (much to the dismay of my parents who check this for details about my life).

On Friday night we went to the Cheeky Monkey Cafe in Newport. My good friend Jeff, who is the chef and manager there, treated us to an Iron Chef style freeform sampling of his culinary expertise. We got a total of nine courses of some of the most wonderful foods I'd ever had. Jen and I were so thrilled with this meal that we made sure to write all of the food down as best we could so that when we got home we'd be able to remember it.

Here's what we had:

First Course
Point Judith Oysters
with horseradish mignonette

Second Course
Mussel & Spinach Bisque
served in a demitasse cup

Third Course
Panko Encrusted Tuna Nori Rolls
with wasabi, pickled ginger and tamari dipping sauce

Fourth Course
Seared Sea Scallop and Beef Tenderloin Napoleon
Served with lobster tail and truffle bordelaise on a potato pancake

Fifth Course
Seared Halibut
on a bed of spinach cous cous and tomato relish

Sixth Course
Watercress & Frisee Salad
with a warm bacon vinaigrette, Maytag Blue Cheese and crispy pecans

Seventh Course
Blackened Tuna
with sweet and sour peppers, mashed potatoes and mache greens salad

Eighth Course
Smoked Duck Breast Salad
with sheep's milk cheese, quince preserves on watercress with tangy citrus dressing

Ninth Course
Bananas Foster Tart
flambeed with Bacardi 151 and served with vanilla ice cream

All in all it was not a bad deal. Tomorrow I have to go to work defending democracy. That should be fun. On top of that I have to go about doing all of the various chores and tasks that I have very much neglected over the past week. The best part of having Jen visit is that I feel like I am justified in not getting anything done. Now it's back to real life.

Shit.

Death Count for the meal
Oyster
Mussels
2 Tunas
Sea Scallop
Cow
Halibut
Pig
Duck (DUCKS EAT GRASS)

So 9 forms of life died in order to have this fine meal. Sounds like a mission accomplished. :)

It was an amazing meal. But you have your death count wrong.

Oysters
Mussels
Tuna (the amount of tuna we had was less than one full tuna, not two)
Sea Scallop
Cow
Lobster (forgot this one)
Halibut
Pig
Duck

So yes, nine different animals. Thanks for the reminder.It was delicious.

Posted by Jen @ 03/24/2003 09:01 AM EST

and they all deserved it.

Posted by Attaboy @ 03/24/2003 12:01 PM EST

Were they all tiny tiny portions? How could you possibly ever eat that much food???

Posted by Caolan @ 03/24/2003 12:46 PM EST

Attaboy, eloquently said. And yeah, they were tasting-menu sized portions shared between the two of us. But it was a lot of food, and we were there from 6:30 to 10, and it definitely took that much time to eat all of that without exploding. Yum.

Posted by Jen @ 03/24/2003 02:03 PM EST

I think we can't assume full responsibility for the deaths of most of those animals. The list should go as such:

2 Oysters
1 Scallop
2 Mussels

Lauren, I didn't know you were a militant vegetarian.

Posted by Chefelf @ 03/24/2003 05:39 PM EST

Not Militant. Jen is a turkey killer though (for further details, see Jen). I was just pointing out that it was a lot of death for one meal.

Posted by Lauren @ 03/24/2003 06:37 PM EST

Perhaps. Good eats though!

Posted by Chefelf @ 03/24/2003 09:49 PM EST

Not militant? NOT militant? My ass, not militant.

Posted by Jen @ 03/24/2003 10:28 PM EST

I will have you know that right now I have ground beef sitting in my fridge. I have also had at one time or another turkey neck and hamburgers in there. There are also plenty of chunks of animal parts in Abe's wet dog food and dry. So I think the militant vegetarian is an unjust accusation.

Posted by Lauren @ 03/24/2003 11:31 PM EST

Well, I like your taste in pre-fab bread, Nate, but $10 restaurant lasagna is as far as I go into the world of fine dining.

Posted by Lefty @ 03/25/2003 12:39 PM EST

That's usually as far as I'm willing to go as well. But when the Chef is an old friend the price is usually pretty reasonable.

Posted by Chefelf @ 03/25/2003 02:25 PM EST

The closest I usually come to "fine" dining is the rather pricey pizza place near my house. You shame me with your fancy schmancy lasagna.

Posted by Heccubus @ 03/26/2003 10:17 AM EST

Don't turn your nose up at pricey pizza. You may want to try the lasgna though, it's divine! And easy to make yourself!

Posted by Chefelf @ 03/26/2003 01:00 PM EST

Oh, I'm not turning my nose up at the pizza itself, just the prices. And the store is kind of dirty. And I'm pretty sure they lick the pizza before they give it to you. They just look like they'd do that sort of thing to me.

Hi, great message board.
I just started a weightloss program to safely lose weight.
My doctor told me to order phentermine from a quality online pharmacy.
So I think http://fioricet-online-here.com and http://adipex-online-here.com is the best online pharmacy sites.
My prescription medicine, phentermine and adipex-p pill, arrived in time and now I'm starting to lose weight and look great.
