After we posted the Poor Mans Lobster Recipe………..which I know you all will be making for Valentines Day, our conversation was still about the food we served at Waldo Stubbs. It was such a large part of people’s lives, not only the place, but the food. Several readers ask if we had the recipe for Hamburger Soup, which was served every Wednesday along with a Grilled Cheese Sandwich. It was the most popular soup at the restaurant.
Well, we did not have the original recipe, but after much brain-storming, we think we have recreated the recipe. For those of you who remember the soup try it and let us know if we succeeded. If you have noooooo idea what we are talking about, just try it and you’ll know what all the fuss is/was about! Continue reading “Hamburger Soup”
Lemon Pepper Chicken Panini
This weeks “Date Night Dinner” is maybe more of a lunch, although I do like the ocassional sandwich for dinner. Sometimes you just don’t want a huge meal.
But if you are going to have a sandwich, and its going to be for dinner, it should be a really great sandwich, like a panini. I don’t remember the first panini I ever had but I think for the money they are by far the best thing since sliced bread……..ha, ha. I am not sure if its a rule or not but, a panini should always be on ciabatta bread. It is far and away the best……..
I am kinda the Queen of cleaning out the refrigerator. As I looked in it I saw that there were some lemons that needed to be used, a half a log of goat cheese, a container of mixed greens, a half an onion and half a loaf of ciabatta. Well lemon pepper marinade is always good with chicken. The goat cheese could be spread on the bread……….if I grilled the onions along with the chicken……hum………. now I was getting an idea……Panini! I could top it off with the mixed green after it was grilled. But it need a little something more so a Balsamic Drizzle was just the ticket. Serve it up with your favorite chips or a nice pasta salad or if our weather is any indicator…….brrrrrrrr……….. maybe a nice cup of soup. Continue reading “Lemon Pepper Chicken Panini”
