As a small business owner myself, I always try and support the local stores. I also try and pay in cash because I know they're taking a hit with the credit card fees. Ironically AmEx dings you extra hard.

If your jalapeños are too hot, make sure you scrape out all the white membrane when you clean them - that's where the heat is. Between roasting them and the effect of the cream cheese, they really aren't very hot.

And they thank you for it... I think that it the real reason AmEx is pushing to promote S-Bizz Sat.

My pleasure Sir!
I felt at home right away, and it was really nice meeting your Mom.


As I expected, all the jalapenos were gone from my groc (that ALWAYS has em ) .... All this talk and pix of peppers with cream cheese made me try a new pepper to me.

I'll report...

Well.. my peppers were good, but I had to add heat. Not pic worthy.

Grilled East Coast Oysters with Corn Jalapeño Salsita
by Rafael Palomino
Latin Grill: Sultry and Simple Food for Red-Hot Dinners and Parties




I've been a big fan of the plump and succulent wonders of oysters for a long time—since even before I started frequenting one of my favorite raLatin Grill: Sultry and Simple Food for Red-Hot Dinners and Parties

I've been a big fan of the plump and succulent wonders of oysters for a long time—since even before I started frequenting





w bars: the one in the Blue Ribbon, in Tribeca. Something about the charm of this particular example of our sea's bounty has always intrigued me. These days I prefer local (like Cape Cod) over other types of oysters, but, still, I'm open! The accompanying salsita—which is tasty all by itself or even spread on a small salad of your favorite greens—offers a wonderful flavor and texture balance. I suggest making the accompanying sauce ahead of time so you can visit with your guests. Then just grill the oysters, plate them, and serve.

Yield: 3 servings





4 ears of corn, shucked

Canola oil for grilling

2 plum tomatoes, sliced in half, lengthwise
1 red onion, sliced
Freshly ground black pepper
1 jalapeño pepper, roasted, deveined, seeded, and diced
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar
Kosher salt
12 oysters, scrubbed







Light a fire in a charcoal or gas grill. Place the corn—without anything on it—on the grill grate. Grill the ears of corn, rotating the corn as needed to keep it from getting charred too much on one side, for about 7 minutes. (Don't overcook the corn, or it will become mushy!) Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Remove the kernels from the cobs and set aside.

Meanwhile, squirt just a bit of canola oil on the tomato and onion slices. Sprinkle pepper on top. Place the onion slices on the grill. Add the tomatoes cut-side down on the hot grate and grill until both are nicely browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn the onion slices and tomatoes with tongs and continue grilling until the bottoms of the tomatoes (the rounded parts) are nicely browned and the onion becomes softer and fragrant, about 3 more minutes.
Dice the onion and tomatoes and place in a bowl. Add the corn kernels and the jalapeño. Pour in the olive oil and vinegar and stir to combine. Season with salt. This can be done up to one day ahead of time; just bring the salsita to room temperature prior to serving.
Place the oysters directly on the grates of the grill, close the cover, and cook until all of the oysters have opened, 4 to 5 minutes. Discard any oysters that have not opened on their own. Further open the ones that have started to open and top each one with 1 teaspoon of the corn and jalapeño salsita. Serve hot.

Ran into this while traveling. Tasty stuff. Sweet, with a back end bite. No afterburn. Sweet, BAM, gone.

Must not grab the wrong honey while mixing tea



Would totally love to roll out all the wonderful plans for riding today
BUT
I've been told, over coffee this morning, about how I'm to go to my wife's new office and help her move stuff in, hang art and move furniture. I have also been told if I'm good I get to go to Ikea.

Kinda hoping when I walk outside we have a flat tire

Going to Ikea is a reward?

I guess this is one of the reasons I was never domesticated.

I don't know about White Marsh but at the Ikea in College Park you can eat pretty good for cheap. Not gourmet but a solid hot meal that's relatively healthy.

In her eyes, yes. I effing hate that place but domestication does have its rewards

Never put that on the internet! it can be traced.... thanx

Apparently I dodged a High School reunion last night. That's what I get for ignoring facebook event notifications. I feel I'm a better person for it.



This just in: The Ikea "reward" is because I dropped the ball yesterday when I had been asked to do some cleaning up(mostly after myself) before my daughter came over for dinner last night. Which was a much better time than meeting some old people in some bar.

They have that at all of them. Cheap? Yes. Gourmet? Healthy? Debatable. Personally, I can't stand the stuff.

Well yes, you're right. I had salmon, red potatoes and a salad and since it was served cafeteria style, I was surprised it wasn't awful so maybe I thought it was better than it actually was. I'd still rather sit in the cafe than walk around the store.
