I just got back from Tru in Chicago. About 15 courses of heaven!

Some highlights:

"Golden Imperial Ossetra [Caviar]"
"Bright melon on rose essence, cured duck breast"
"Yellow Corn Royal...truffle, foie gras"
"Soy glazed veal"
"Epoisses...red wine pear"

Probably the best meal of my life.

Had Pork Schnitzel yesterday at the neighborhood restaurant, with caramelized veggies and house salad honey citrus dressing. The Pork Schnitzel had a creamy mushroom sauce on it. Green tea black accompanied and Saskatoon berry pie with two scoops of ice cream as a treat.

Not my typical supper, but it was actually pretty tasty.

My usual weekend breakfast...chorizo egg and cheese scramble. But I'm out of tortillas so I had to eat it on toast

Back to college life today after Tru last night, today I have had easy mac, some mandarin oranges, ritz crackers, and nutella. Dinner will probably be some dry cereal with some form of nuts and water. For dessert, a fork and crunchy biscoff spread!

Dinner last night, lunch today: chile rellenos, but not those puffy, soggy omelet-like monstrosities you find in most restaurants. We like the New Mexican style - cooked on a skillet with an egg batter/flour coating that gives them a good crunch. Very tasty

A little breakfast for dinner. Amazing how easy scrambled eggs and toast can be, and also how comforting.

All you can eat shrimp tonite at Red Lobster. Hot green tea. Brocolli as a side, plus I like how the wasabi teriyaki type shrimp comes with rice so you don't have to order as a side. My kids all had Kraft Mac and Cheese, and ice cream sundae for dessert. Tried the breaded shrimp, and the shrimp alfredo as well.

I had a kids ice cream sundae for myself, but somehow they got me an additional scoop of ice cream for $1.25 more. Must be a recent enhancement.

In Canada, there is a four course meal for $18.99, so I ordered my wife a Shrimp Alfredo, Salad, Clam Chowder and a cheesecake for takeout tonite..

Hope you had some of those cheesy biscuits. Highly addictive

Yep.. but with the modified Atkins diet, I'm trying to avoid breads and pasta as much as possible..

Thus the one helping of shrimp alfredo, and one biscuit to melt in my mouth.. and that's it.

I'm thinking I'll stop in at Red Lobster again, but the one washroom being down for renovations (Macleod Trail Calgary) made it really inconvenient bringing two kids there to eat. Had to line up and use a washroom that did not smell healthy from heavy use.

Today, at White Spot Restaurant and had their new roasted chicken with half slab of back ribs. The salad was free with their promo, and the brocolini as the side was great.
