The Internet Kitchen: Vegas Baby
This weekend I’m heading to fabulous Las Vegas for a good friend’s bachelor party. I haven’t been to Vegas in a few years so I’m looking forward to it. I think we’ll be playing a lot of poker and just wondering around looking at the crazy place.
Besides poker I’ll probably try my luck on the craps tables and my newest favorite casino game: Casino War aka High Card. It about as quick as a game can be. Flip a card. Lose. Flip a card. Lose. Flip a card. Lose. At least that’s how I envision my Casino War experience will go down.
Given that I’m going without my loving wife for a bachelor party, it’s possible that I’ll need to get back on her good graces after I return.
So Tex-Mex is on the menu. You guys pick the dish though!
And a few links!
The Best Sandwich in the Universe – A pretty awesome stab at a really delicious sandwich although it can only be made well in August and other tomato-ripened times. I’m not sure that it’s my favorite sandwich in the universe, but it’s pretty close (add homemade mayo, add bacon). (@ Eatocracy)
What to Look for When Picking Fruits and Veggies – Very important if you plan to make the best sandwich in the universe. Just a great primer on how to pick the best of the best when you’re shopping at farmer’s markets or in the supermarkets for produce. (@ Summer Tomato)
A How-To Guide to Roasting a Pig – Say goodbye Petunia (the name of the pig). An awesome photo walk-through (some graphic photos) of how to properly roast a whole pig. This is still on my list to do someday… (@ Endless Simmer)
Mocha Swirl Cookies – For dessert today, I pick these beautiful cookies. They look a lot harder to make then they actually are I think. And the frosting just takes them over the top! (@ Sprinkle Bakes)
Have a great weekend everyone! Wish me luck on the tables!
