March Madness Returns
Long time readers of this blog will know that every March I challenge myself to eat something different for dinner every night during the month of March. Not all meals will be homemade. Not all meals will be fancy. Not all meals will be barbecue. The challenge is to make each meal unique.
And just for kicks, this year I challenged myself to photograph each meal this month. Well, so far that hasn't happened. But I have eaten three different dinners each night this month. Photos will come. I promise.
- March 1 - Grilled Italian sausages with oven roasted potatoes and green beans. Nothing fancy here. Just a quick home made dinner.
- March 2 - Scheuan Beef from Ming's Place on Avenue U, Brooklyn. Ming's used to be really great when it opened in the 80's. Like most Chinese places it went down hill for while, and now it's on an upswing again. Recently they've gone "old school" with a take out menu heavy on the combo plates, Soup, egg roll, main dish, rice, fortune cookies, noodles, and an orange, all for under $10. The food is good again. I just wish they'd update their interior. It's still done in 1980's mauve.
- March 3 - Crab cake sandwich, fries and coleslaw from Randazzo's Clam Bar, Sheepshead Bay. This was a real disappointment. The waitress said that the crab cakes were the best thing on the menu, home made and filled with crab meat. Well, there was crab meat somewhere in the bread cubes, but man, these sandwiches tasted like they were forty years old. Never in my life have I had such "fishy" tasting crab. City's Best claims that Randazzo's had the best seafood in NY for 2008. What were they thinking? And, for the neighborhood, this place is expensive! Next time, it's back to Jordan's Lobster Dock.
