Another midnight snack creation: The Twice Baked Steak Sandwich. I had a leftover twice baked and some left over steak I thin sliced and set in a cut open Twice Baked Potato to create this delicious masterpiece. I should have thought of this long ago.

Wow. Just, Wow. A great watch for anyone interested in food or just a solid documentary. What happened to having pride in your work? Caring about what you create, not just being a working man (or woman) but a pride in the final product that adds greatness to the world? Makes me want to go back to being a vegitarin (I was for almost 2 years in High School) but hot damn I love me my burgers.
This idea has been rattling around my head for quite some time now. I think it was after I had my first Luther, I thought, now what can we do with a Maple Bar? DING! Maple Bar BLT! I finally got around to The Donut Hole and picked up a few maple bars, bought some thick cut bacon and a few beautifully fresh tomatoes. An amazing sandwich, one that will most certainly be made many times again, it was kind of like a Luther Lite. Now I need a name for this beast more than just Maple Bar BLT. The Montana Cheesesteak?

Inspired by my recent trips to the Parrot, I took it upon myself to make something I've always wanted to try, but have, for some reason, never been able to find: Chocolate Covered Pistachios. A few years ago I found a bag of "Chocolate Covered Pistachios" at Target, but when I got home and bit into one, discovered that they were a combination of ground pistachios, coffee beans, toffee and a slew of other foodstuffs. Gross. But these little morsels were amazing. The wonderful earthy flavor of pistachio and sweet creaminess of the chocolate worked beautifully together. I'll be making these again, Soon.
(To make these I shelled a bunch of pistachios and melted some brick chocolate I bought at the Parrot on the stovetop over warm heat, then hand dipped and put in the fridge for about an hour. Pretty simple, they key is using a very low heat for the chocolate, or better yet a double boiler.)
