Well, you've read the notes, you're feeling the San Francisco vibe, and now it is time for you to post until the San Francisco Cows come home.  To it, I say.

McDonald's Filet-O-Fish with slivered onions added and Skipper's regular fish with dill tartar sauce.  That's pretty much the extent of fish that I like.  I don't have recipes, either.  Sorry.

Don't much care for fish and rarely...very rarely...eat it.  I especially do not understand the allure of any kind of shellfish or sushi.

Good morning, all!  I'm home today taking care of all the homebound requirements before a colonoscopy.  I am not looking forward to any of this.

So, I slept late.  Manhattan seems very quiet for a cold Monday morning, but I like this wintery weather.  I'll work on the concert orchestrations today and see how far I get.

TOD:
  Grilled tuna
  Grilled salmon
  clam chowder
  shrimp in many Italian and Chinese dishes
  fried oyesters
  oyster stew
  scallops
  no calamari, no octopus  EVER!!!!

Monday greetings!  It's cold, cold, cold here and supposed to get colder.

TOD - grilled salmon, steamed Alaskan king crab legs, trout almondine, fried clams (the best I've ever had were on the pier in Avon by the Sea, NJ), clam dip, broiled scallops, tuna - cold in salads and hot in noodle casseroles.

The Littlest Angel, with Johnny Whitaker and Fred Gwynne, was a Hallmark Hall of Fame production.  As I recall, it was also the first (or one of) to use the Chroma-Key system, where actors performed in front of a blue screen and the backgrounds were added later.

Time to get to work.  The phone rang about an hour ago, asking me to come in on a day off, so I'm on again.

We may get snow this afternoon!

Good Morning all...

I'm not m,uch of a fish person.... I like the Fish & Chips at an English style "chippy" in  place in Grand Prairie, Canada... I think its fried cod... but I must put lots of tartar sauce and lemon on the fish....

I do like shrimp, dipped in cocktail sauce wih lemon, or just about anyway its cooked.

I had some wonderful scallops cooked at a hibachi restaurant in Ocotober and once had a wonderful scallop dish that had the scallops in a lovely sherry/cream sauce and served in something that resemled the botom of a pie shell only it was made of mashed potatoes that had been mixed witrh chheses and then browened under the broiler... I cxaqnnot remember the name of the dish... no doubt Woody or Jose could tell us

I once was at a fancy Christmas party in a French restaurant in DC and had a lovely lobster dish... agian servedin a sherry/cream sauce....

(maybe its actually sherry/cream sauces I like and not the fish.....hmmmm)

For my tuna sandwiches I prefer Starkist light (not white) tuna, packed in spring water, well drained and mixed witha  little Kraft mayo and lemon and preferably served on toasted rye or a toasted onion bagel

I like crab cakes when I'm in Maryland... everybody else's seem like so much bread crumbs with a sprinkling of crab juice.....


And my mother makes a wonderful hot crab dip every Christmas

I don't care for any raw fish or shellfish and I am not really much of a fish eater although I'm told salmon is really very good for you.......

DR ELMORE good vibes on your journey to the center of YOU.

DR MBARNUM I am so glad you enjoyed AVENTURERA...it is indeed a LOT of movie for one movie!  And I always thought that the dance routines were pretty expensive and extensive to mount in a Mexican Whorehouse, but I guess that's ENTERTAINMENT!!

Does Guy Haines have to blow up his own balloons?  Will Mr Sondheim himself be in attendance?  Are there LOTS of dance numbers?

Will the young girl report immediately to headquarters that she spotted Guy Haines?  Interesting.....

I like fish sticks with ketchup and french fries.

I like shrimp.

I like bananas, because they have no bones.

I used to love Arthur Treacher's Fish and Chips.  The deep frying chased away all those pesky nutritious vitamins.

I love shrimp and lobster, but I hate having to rip apart the lobster, so I prefer the lobster tails to a whole lobster.  And if you're of a mind to splurge, they sell frozen lobster meat at many fish stores, although that's QUITE expensive.

Good morning!

We have a thoroughly miserable day here with cold temperatures, very rainy gray skies, and just plain old yuck!

But we needed the rain, so I won't complain about it any more.

I'm not much of a fish lover either, though fried flounder is very good.

Now, I like other seafood like shrimp and scallops much more than fish.

Read the section in the Champion biography about JUPITER'S DARLING this morning. I have the movie on laserdisc and admit it's never been one of my favorites, but since my memories of it are so vague, I will need to pull it out at some point this week and watch it again.

Just a note for fans of either or both of the shows:

Fox is burning off its remaining episodes of ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT and KITCHEN CONFIDENTIAL starting tonight, so if you like either or both, better watch them now.

I read that Brian Grazer is shopping ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT around to other networks and cable channels (including Showtime) in an attempt to save it. I'll be interested to see if anyone wants it.

We're in for a bitchslapping...I can feel it coming.  

I love fish, and most seafood in general.  Salmon, baked with a sauce I concocted made of mayo, crushed garlic, lime juice, and a sprinkle of seafood seasoning...very good.  Also just grilled salmon is excellent.  Also love cod, made with lemon pepper seasoning, fish and chips, tuna, halibut...all so good.  Seafood chowders and pasta dishes are always excellent.  
I'm a tad more picky about shellfish.  I like crab, clams, and scallops, but only in certain forms and/or dishes.  Clam chowder or fried clams are excellent.  Crab salad or just fresh crab is good.  Shrimp can be wonderful, but the really big ones scare me.  Never much cared for oysters.  Can't stand sushi.

The San Francisco Cows live in the Cow Palace, right?

Only the royal cows.  The King (technically, a bull) and the Queen (an actual female cow rather than a gay cow in drag), two princes (one of whom we wonder about) and four princesses (one is over 30 and rides a motorcycle).  Oh, and the Dowager cow (who's a real bitch).

All the rest live in valleys and glens and dells around the City.

Sushi, ugh! I dated a restaurant critic once, and he took me along when he was reviewing a new Japanese restaurant. This was my first (and last) experience with sushi. The dishes we had later were fine (and he said the sushi was excellent), but I didn't like anything I sampled from the sushi platter.

What is the TOD?  FISH?

Well, I admit I was not much of a fish person most of my life.  I grew up eating fried catfish, trout, crappie and bass, plus fried shrimp.  This would be on average of once a week.  I neither loved it or hated it.  I did hate the bones which were almost always present in everything except shrimp.  

When we would go to the beach in the summer, I would indulge in fried red snapper (LOVED it.  And while I never ordered it, I'd always enjoy a taste of my mom's order of lobster.

My father loved a good oyster stew, and that would be supper on Friday nights sometimes.  I'd settle for the liquid and oyster crackers (or I could go without).  

In fact, most of my fish eating when I lived with my parents -- with the exception of an occasional shrimp cocktail -- was of the "fried" variety.  

Once, however, when I was a senior in high school, my mom came home and announced we were having fish for supper.  Her boss had been deep sea fishing and had brought her a considerable amount of blue dolphin (fish, not mammal).  This was probably the most wonderful fish I've ever tasted.  My mom baked it.  We had enough for several meals.  My father had enough the first time, but my mom would prepare some for me while giving my father something else.

All of this notwithstanding, I have not, in my adult life, made much effort (until the past couple of years) to include fish in my diet.

When I was in Italy where I learned to adore calamari (that's fried squid, which is quite tasty).  I tried other dishes...clams on spaghetti and clams on other kinds of pasta...but ...no...it never really set well with me.  I can eat virtually anything fried...oysters, clams, etc.  But never anything slimy.  Too much like eating snot.

During my carrier tours of duty, the Chief's Mess would often serve fresh lobster or crab...and I really enjoyed it.

In the past couple of years, though, I've gotten very much "into" grilled salmon, halibut, swordfish, trout, sole and tuna.  Nothing tastes as sweetly delicious as grilled fresh fish with complementary herbs.  I also love "blackened" anything (cajun-style).  

I've tried sushi.  I have.  Twice.  The folks around me were just beside themselves with gustatorial glee.  And I was chewing and chewing and chewing and wondering if anything pleasurable or remotely tasty would come from any of it.  Sadly, sushi leaves me cold.  And, yes!  I tried all the different sauces and dips with bites of food. I can burn the crap out of my tongue and mouth without having to deal with raw fish, too.

That's my "what is it, fish" story.  And I'm stickin' to it.

Dang! We love Arrested Development... I hope someone picks it up, although hopefully not Showtime as we no longfer have that as Outr Cable cpo has been taking away those channels we watch to replace them with channels in Spanishor full of Sports, which we do not watch.... I am thuis close to cancelling except we don't have anything better....to go to at the moment....the Dolan family really has us all over a barrel.....
