Nazi Killin' Eggs

Deviled eggs stuffed with yolks, terragon, garlic, mustard, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt and pepper, half an avacado and just a tiny spoonful of mayo. Terrific eggs.

No to little mayo = Nazi Killers!!! (I'm not sure why)

Inglorious Bastards.

Last night's dinner: Empanadas. Stuffed with cabbage, onions, green onions, chipotle powder and fresh oregano in a homemade empanada  dough. Served with homemade enchilada sauce and chimichurri sauce. With the sauces, stuffing and dough, it took a bit over two hours to make, half hour to bake and they were eaten in under ten minutes. Delicious, delicious, delicious. When my rhubarb plant is mature I'm going to make strawberry, rhubarb, cream cheese empanadas. There are so many possibilities with these little guys!

Homemade Finger Steaks

Thin sliced some steak, dipped them in egg, rolled them around in a mix of flour, bread crumbs, creole spices and some other spices then baked in the oven at 375ยบ. Did the exact same for the jojos. Both turned out quite well.

Sir Scott's Oasis!!!

Located in Manhattan, Montana. Just outside of Amsterdam, Montana. They cut and age all of their own meat fresh from Manhattan, MT. We got there about five and by the time we left it was packed!!! The photos are a bit iffy because it was dark in there and I didn't want to be popping of flashes in the place. ISO 1600 baby.

First up, My dinner: 14 oz. Tenderloin steak with texas toast and homemade jojo's. First rate steak, I was full all night long.

Next up: My dad. He had a large (20 oz.) order of hand battered finger steaks. I stole a few of those too. These are what they are well know for and for good reason.

And my lovely wife had the lobster. Even though it wasn't fresh, it was quite delicious and went well with the steak and finger steaks. So if you find your sell in the Montana version of Manhattan (or close to it) check out Sir Scott's Oasis. Call for reservations.  204 W. Main St, Manhattan, MT  59741. (406) 284-6929

P.S. - The Ani DiFranco show was actually pretty cool. Great live performer even if you're not into her music. (Like me.)

Avo/Cucumber Soup

Cucumber Avocado soup. Delicious but I felt it was missing something. Just one thing I can't yet put my finger on, but I'll try a few things out when I make it again.
