cramp in my style


Yesterday and today both my internet and cable went out from 10 in the morning until 6 in the evening, this puts a serious dent in my blogging schedule. Not only do I fall behind in my reader but I fall behind in my responses as well. So thank you very much Time Warner and even though you will credit me for two days it still doesnt bring those days back.



Mixed grill with shrimp, chicken and zucchini surrounding some mint jasmine rice and sauced off with grapes and gorgonzola.



Time Warner can slow me down but they cant stop me.

How often do you host dinner parties?

Jenn said...

I've had that happen to me. I use AT&T. It totally sucks.

I wish I was your place right now eating that. I like the presentation of it, too.

(Mixed grill with shrimp, chicken and zucchini).

The moment I read this....
my mouth went limp, my glands gushed, and my mind raged.........desire.......
that instead of this bowl full of your basic Mac'n'Cheese(Kraft),
I'd be doing gorgonzola, grapes and mint jasmine on a pyramid of rice as a side dish.

The first time I made a sauce veronique, my hubby was astonished as he blurted, "Hot grapes are good!" This looks good to me.

Pooja said...

That is the spirit! Keep it up! Nothing should ever stop you. Wow what a fabulous meal. Rice with grilled chicken and shrimp..lovely! Tempts me to eat right from your pic!

Patty Gironda said...

this looks delicious! Sorry about the stealing and crappy other stuff you're dealing with.

my thoughts-do what you do-don't watermark. I have had so much work and photos lifted. Even my coffee label which I designed myself showed up on someone's else blog made into an award for a magazine.

I figure I will worry about it when it's my last good idea!

Patty Gironda said...

I do a chicken and grapes recipe based on an ancient Roman recipe! Very good.

Sara said...

Looks like a great meal. I just hate it when my internet doesn't work, especially since I'm the one paying them!

snugs said...

I am used to internet connection issues because I live at the end of the Earth in my very own third world country aka Rio Grande Valley..but YOU, you are MR NYC...can't believe you have these problems too..dinner looks too delish!

doggybloggy said...

finsmom: and they did...the gorgonzola grape combo was the best

kenny: why do you ask?

jenn: it is so frustrating this internet stuff- you could have pulled up a chair there was plenty

micky t: one of these days dude one of these days...

marjie: you and your family just warm my heart... and hot grapes are good!

pooja: if you can figure out how to do that let me know the secret

patty: no watermark for me - and what is this ancient roman recipe

sara: thats exactly the point - I write them checks!

doggybloggy said...

snugs: we have more issues than tissues here in NYC what are you talking about?

burpandslurp said...

KennyT said...

girlichef said...

Beautiful dish...love the grapes (and the rice cone).

Reeni♥ said...

What a delight for the senses!

Ciao Chow Linda said...

Looks like a delicious meal - love that rice pyramid.

Just telling it like it is said...

Doggie you need to stop by and see me you won't be sorry! Nice style!

Elyse said...

Oh Time Warner, I have some horror stories about them...and about Comcast. This whole monopoly on the cable/internet thing really works to everyone's disadvantage. Glad your internet's back on! You're so right: no one can stop you! And this dinner looks FABULOUS.

Jamie said...

Oh, if I had this dish waiting for me after MY internet and phone went out last week I wouldn't mind. What a fab combo of all my favorites! And what a beautiful arrangement.

And glad to see you back...

pigpigscorner said...

Grill and mint! Sounds like a wonderful combination to me! and I can't live without the internet now!

doggybloggy said...

kenny: stop by anytime

girli: is it too frou-frou?

reeni: glad to help when I can

linda: tired of the same old ring mold...

justtelling: I did stop over and it looks like you need a hand

elyse: I understand things have problems but two days in a row at the same time...comeon now

jamie: flew together in the time it took the rice to cook

pibpig: I hear you - I need the internet so bad I am like a junky

buffalodick said...

I wish I had a fish market like you do! That looked great!

giz said...

The good news is when you're internet and cable crap out, you have so much more time to create wonderful food. Did I miss the memo about the dinner party?

Jill said...

Grapes and Gorgonzola!!! You da MAN!

doggybloggy said...

buff: truth is our shrimp arrives frozen from louisiana so it still gets defrosted...

giz: how long does it take the rice cooker to make rice? thats how long this meal for 6 took

jill: thanks jill that made me warm and fuzzy

lisaiscooking said...

That looks like one delicious meal! Pretty rice cone too.

Teresa Cordero Cordell said...

Love your mixed grill. I also saw your Barbie-Q, cute! The "high-tech" thingy you saw on my blog is a cheapo pan I bought at Big Lots. It's available on "asseenontv.com" for 19 bucks. I bought it for 5. It works for me.

Donna-FFW said...

Yummy plate of pleasure, mister christo!

Tangled Noodle said...

I've fallen way behind in my blog reading because I'm a lazy a** (well, that and other stuff). The last time I was here, it was post #805 and now you're up to #815! Need to catch up . . .

Love the tower of rice.

Dawn said...

hey at least you got 2 days credit. ComCrap doesn't even give out that much.
love the olives in here. what did you use for the cone shape rice? all I can think of is a coffee filter. lol

Leela said...

The rice cone, yay! Love the rice cone.

Viewing activities have dropped for many of us from what I've heard. It's been like that since Memorial Day.

Pam said...

It drives me nuts when the computer goes down.

Can I please come for dinner because this looks FANTASTIC!

Cynthia said...

One day I hope to be in your neck of the woods so that you can cook for me. The dish looks simple, sophisticated and mighty tasty.

Jeanne said...

Looks yummy! And not the least because the way you've shaped the rice reminds me of a giant white Hershey Kiss.

(BTW -- hold onto your socks, because I'm going to post a RECIPE tomorrow.)

Chef Fresco said...

Haha I hate Time Warner. This dish looks so yummy! Love your rice cone :)

Joy said...

Oh, that looks delicious!

teresa said...

what an amazing presentation, you could teach a class on beautiful plating!

Sophie said...

MMMMMM....what a tasty looking dish! Yum all tha way! What a beatiful presentation too!
I would love to come to dinner!

Grace said...

i would probably be in tears if i was without cable AND internet all day. i'm addicted. :)
meanwhile, terrific meal, from the grilled goodies to the rice to that awesome-sounding sauce!

5 Star Foodie said...

This looks wonderful - love the mint rice pyramid!

Okay, so I really want the iPhone, but I don't understand the billing. If I do get it i'd probably get internet and unlimited text messaging. How much do you think it'll be? Can somebody please explain to me how the billing would be? Thanks!
