addROC's Kitchen: A Little of This, A Little of That...

Clams Casino

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: One of the BEST things about having addROC in the kitchen is that, you'll never get bored. He's always trying something new, and somehow, it always turns out well.

I think that a constantly changing menu makes for a fun and interesting keeps your body and your taste buds alert and ready for action.

In this week's segment, I want to highlight the smaller treats that addROC has whipped up...'cause they're tasty and so gosh-darn CUTE!

Above, is addROC's Clams Casino.
Born in family tradition, addROC makes these every once in a while to remind himself of home...and to remind me of how much I can cram in my mouth if I am feeling determined.
Mmmmm...breadcrumbs, bacon, onions, shallots, peppers, and clams! How can you go wrong? Fabulous!

Poblano Poppers

Ah, scrumptious little Poblano peppers filled with: Cream cheese, onion, shallots, peppers...and then wrapped in BACON! Deeeeevine!

I love things with a kick! A great little appetizer before a delicious meal.

And finally, the addROC money shot:

Dinner For Two:

Flank Steak with Chimichurri Sauce
Yucca in a Garlic Lemon Dressing
Fresh Sweet Corn

Everything was stellar.
But, the yucca took me by surprise. So delicious. I'd had it before, but something about the tangy dressing just pushed me over the edge of taste-bud pleasure.
And, as for the steak, need I say there are very few items that surpass grilled steak, in my book?
(And yes! We did hop out on the roof, because, sadly, our days are numbered with the frikkin' cold months upon us!)

So wonderful.

Delicious food, made by other people...

Life is good.
