thanks for the fajita seasoning recipe escudo...i will try it.
last nights seasoning went something like this...a bunch of chili powder, a dash of paprika, an indeterminate amount of cumin, garlic powder, onion flakes, topped of with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

a touch too spicy for sweet baby.
while there were plenty of leftovers when i went to work this morning...all traces had vanished by the time i got home this afternoon.

The pineapple souffle that my family makes is divine.  Funny, I don't even recall having posted about it.  It is my great grandmother's recipe...  Yes, the one that lived on Saragossa St.  

If you search online you will get some grotesque recipes...like ones with cheese in them.  Ewww.  Don't go there.  I will post mine for you this weekend.  

It is supposed to be a side dish for a salty ham, but our family usually gets HoneyBaked Hams which are as sweet as they are salty...so the sweet souffle can be a little much with a sweet ham.

So for my family it has now become a side dish served with turkey at Thanksgiving.  Honestly, it could be a dessert too.  Main ingredients, off the top of my head: canned crushed pineapple in syrup, sugar, flour, butter, cubed white bread.  Yes, a diabetic coma is nearly guaranteed.  

The bread and butter rise to the top and with the syrup they create this crispy, caramelized buttery top...and then there's the warm, soft pineapple-y souffle underneath.  

You'll need a place to nap afterward.  My husband curled up in a ball on the couch and fell asleep with his thumb in his mouth after his first-ever helping.

Yes, I'm game!  

But please be advised that baking is not my strong suit...lots of math and accuracy required.  And I am not a fan of either.  Strictly liberal arts, because it's so damned easy to bullshit your way through.  But I digress...

Yes, I'm game!

I'd also like to see a thread for "Specialties."  Seems like everyone has their one thing that they really love to make...and always get rave reviews on.

I'm a foodie wannabe...just getting my feet wet in the kitchen these past few years since the crash.  The hubby and I are trying to eat out less and ditch the prepared foods.  We work a lot and used to order Chinese food often or toss a Stouffer's lasagna in the oven.

Our biggest obstacle to healthy eating is that we're exhausted after a 12 or 14 hour day and don't have the energy to start a big meal project.  Lately we've been trying to plan 2-item dinners.  He cooks the protein on the grill and I am responsible for the vegetable.  It works through about Tuesday or Wednesday, then we end up at the local Mexican restaurant or rifling through take-out menus.

Would love to hear any ideas for solutions!

Thanks for the great weeknight meal ideas!  

We actually got to dine at a couple of "old faithfuls" in St. Augustine recently.  We hadn't been back in town for several years so I was craving food from several favorites.  There wasn't time to get to all of them but #1 on my list was Le Pavillon, so my husband and I stopped there for an early lunch on the way into town.  I'm embarrassed to admit how much food we consumed.  

We decided to split an order of the beef crepes as an appetizer...and wolfed down a basket of parmesan rolls while we waited for them to arrive.  For our entrees,  I had the quiche lorraine and my husband had the daily special...a hearty lasagne.  Needless to say, all of that food after a 7 hour drive was a recipe for a long afternoon nap.  

For dinner, my husband chose to fulfill his fried shrimp craving at Barnacle Bills.  Again, too much of a good thing. There was talk of "walking it off" on the beach later.  Never happened.

We followed it up with a monstrous breakfast at The Oasis the next morning.  I had the blueberry pancake special and my husband had a gigantic breakfast sandwich on an everything bagel.  Again, delicious food but humongous portions.

On our way out of town, we grabbed ryders at The Cheese Wheel to eat on the road.

Need to get back to town again soon to hit Gypsy Cab & Creekside...and I'd love to try some of the new foodie joints downtown.

Let me know of any new or old local favorites to try...I've been out of the loop for about 9 years!

Wow, you made it to all the good old faithfuls! The only one I suggest (based upon friends' recommendations and my own experiences at his prior places) is Ned's Kitchen at 2450 U.S. South. Ned, of course, is my dear buddie since 1979 when he opened Malaga Street Depot, and then later was co-owner/founder of Gypsy Cab Co.

I had the most glorious novel written here about all my favorite St. Augustine restaurants...past & present...and why they are my favorites.  

But I hit submit...was prompted to sign in again...and then poof, my masterpiece vanished.

I'd like to lodge a complaint.

Yes!  The decor needs a re-do.   I think they were going for "Alps-Chic" but landed somewhere near "Ticky-Tacky French Grandma."  

But lordy do the ladies love that place!  The republican women's club used to have their board meetings there (may still.)  There were a bunch of older gals and a couple of garden clubs in there during my last lunchtime visit.  My husband was really nervous and kept looking around behind him like he was afraid the Red Hat Ladies were going to offer him up as a sacrifice.

And...there's a Winn Dixie at 207 and US 1??  Wow.  I have been gone a long time.  Love anything having to do with pitas and/or garbanzos.  I make a decent hummus.

Dined at Blackfly (used to be Colley's in the old days - next to Diane's health food across the bridge on the left) last evening - one of the finest meals I've ever enjoyed in 40 years of St. Augustine eating and drinking (exquisite drink menu also).

Pricey, however.
