PC made his famous Italian chicken (basically encrusted in Parmesan, with Eyetalian hoibs), green beans with almonds, and yellow rice. Notice our lovely new platter from Big Lots which just about matches the plates from the Dollar Store:

Both the meal and the dishes. You don't need Limoges to get eye appeal.
Izzat chicken grilled or pan cooked?

It's baked (no fat at all, Mrs. F). Very easy. PC agreed to cook last night after I was nearly going off the deep end while making groceries. Too many things not available. I hope that changes soon.

Izzat your plate, PR?

Where's Puddles's plate? Looks good!! Yummarama!

I shopped at Odd Lots today. I was looking all over for a round table cloth for Thanksgiving. We needed a covering for the smokers' table on the deck. Last place I looked was Odd Lots, and whoop, there it was. Price was so good, I bought two.

Hubbie's favorite food

Chicken - and encrusted in Parmesan - his dream come true. I'm sure it was great. So, did he use butter & olive oil or just one of those?

No pics though. Marinated strips in a flour tortilla with sour cream, lettuce and tomato.

It would seem that everybody's Sunday night dinner tasted like chicken - except ours...

November 21 2005, 9:58 AM 

... RHG produced a masterpiece on undecorated platters (white plate special - not intended for display but for eating with relish, so to speak!). It was roasted Cornish hen with an oyster and walnut stuffing; accompanied by peas - and, of course some fine claret. Apple compote with whipped cream for dessert.

After dinner, we sobered up by watching CBS's '60 Minutes' segment (frustratingly, delayed for three quarters of an hour by wretched football - why don't they have a separate, juvenile channel for that?) on the sinking of New Orleans.

The segment was unbalanced, scientifically, but thought-provoking, nevertheless. The sole, briefly interviewed scientist on the show, the much-derided Prof Tim Kusky of St Louis should have been answered by other geological experts; and there should have been several more informed local speakers than the loquacious Greg Meffert, Mayor Nagin's IT spokesguru, to debate the pros and cons of rebuilding.

We were appalled to read in the press that an attempt had actually been made by local and state politicians and commissioners - apparently the kind who would strive play down imperial nakedness! - to suppress CBS's airing of the controversial segment about the city's geological vulnerability.

That attempt reminded me of the kind of efforts traditionally made in communist countries like the PRC, North Korea, or the former Soviet Union to hide or falsely downplay the impact of major natural disasters or embarrassing human blunders like virus outbreaks or Chernobyl, rather than encourage productive public debate about response to the disaster and future prevention.

On one "rebuilding" website I read disgraceful letters from a couple of (?) LSU professors who had apparently been paid or persuaded to write letters to CBS attempting to personally discredit Professor Kusky and the caliber of his work scientific work (shades of Lysenko?). They are presumably tenured, so can't be fired. Pity.

I didn't see it

November 21 2005, 10:46 AM 

but it did read up on it on the web. What I did see was an interview with, as you put it so delicately JCG ONE scientist.

Seems to me I have been reading about this for years, at least since my geology classes in college....the wasting away of the wetlands and the natural course of the Mississippi and how we try to stop it and redirect it course, move it etc....and for YEARS now we have also been complaining out the erosion of our wetlands...apparently to deaf ears. So now you got this one guy (excuse me, Scientist) who says we'll need 30 feet of wall by 2095? Hellooooooo, how one sided is this? I can give you one Scientist that says we'll be hit by a meteor by 2095 and the whole Earth will explode so why do anything about anything?. Sorry to go on...it just hits a nurve is all.
