Viva La Bam

Emeril is not my favourite guy on the Food Network (truth be told, I actually turn the channel when I see him and his band). However, this cat knows how to run a restaurant and his New Orleans style chow is so so so good.

I started with a potable de perfection in a martini glass: Emeril's Oasis. Van Gogh coconut vodka mixed with pineapple and mango vodkas and a splash of mango nectar. An orchid was swimming in the mix. Sweet Phalenopsis it's tasty. The amuse was a gorgeous little morsel of smoked salmon laying on a tiny pillow of asparagus soup, topped with cucumber yogurt and micro greens. My starter was an oyster salad (deep fried oysters with salty greens and a cucumber relish), and for my entree I had the seared Yellowfin Tuna with fingerling potatoes. Hey, I'd eat stir-fried thumbs if they came with fingerling potatoes.

I have to go and pay some long needed attention to my poor cat. She has been passed off like Oliver and Little Orphan Annie this past week.

Cuddle Monkey at the ready. And...launch.

Where is this restaurant? Palm Beach? Boca?

South Beach - My Jammy, my friend.

Oh, wait. This was from the Miami weekend? (Should read from the bottom up, I guess. I need to become more of a blog-assman.)

And the rest sounds good too.

Aah, fingerling potatoes...I'd marry them if I could.

she says mouth watering...

A post spotted on the Hulles blog:

Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa.

I'm still alive, and still working feverishly on my work project.

I haven't been able to keep up with my emails, let alone read your blogs, let alone respond to comments, let alone write anything for this blog. But that intensity is what I have to have right now, at least for another week or two.

I'll be better as soon as I am able.
