    It's my daughter's birthday today, and I'm gonna cook her favorite dinner. BBQ beer butt chicken (aka chicken on a can), spanish rice, grilled corn-on-the-cob, and for dessert--peach cobbler.

    Hey, Doc, ever make your own Texas Toast? The garlic variety, I mean? I like the frozen stuff, so I decided to try my own. I use fresh Italian bread from the grocery store, brush a little ev olive oil on both sides, then butter both sides (can you hear the arteries closing up?), a little kosher salt and sprinkle with chopped fresh thyme. Under the broiler on a sheet pan til it's brown enough to suit (and then flip it of course). Careful...easy to overdo!! Don't ask me how I know that!

    Then, when it's done, slice a peeled garlic clove in half and rub that sucker all over both sides of the toast. Now, I'm getting hungry!!

    I've tried it with just olive oil, just butter and with both. Both wins - but the others ain't bad!! :eatdrink020

    I was at a restaurant with friends:

    Millefeuille de crabe (Crab Napoleon)
    Râble de lapin au chèvre et à l’ail (Saddle of rabbit with garlic and goat’s cheese)
    Crème catalane (kind of crème brûlée with lavender)
