Open line time...

We like food here at the Times Max often posts pictures from family dinners and we're always talking about food here at the office.  On last night's open line, I mentioned going over to a friend's house for dinner.  Just so happens my friend is a chef at Ashley's.  Probably some of the best food I've had.  A commentor asked for a menu, so here it is.  For starters, we had a golden beet and Montana morel mushroom risotto, with lobster glace. Our second course was a Arkansas Vichyssoise, with locally grown sorrell, potatoes and lobster knuckles. For the main course (pictured above) we had lobster with a roasted corn-avocado salad.

I think I've eaten lobster on two occasions in my life and might not again for some time.  This was pretty good stuff.  Thanks to the good friends for the dinner and the company. 

What's on your mind today?
