Tuesday dinner

  • 8th Jun, 2006 at 2:12 PM

I met with love2heart on Tuesday. She showed up at my door, since I was working from home, and we spent a while chatting as dinner cooked in the oven. It's quite warm in Montréal right now, so turning on the oven will soon be quite impractical. I really should get a smoker out on the balcony soon, so that I can cook outside. I wonder if I can operate the wok over hot coals?

We had a simple salad, some roasted chicken, and a raspberry fool. I really don't see a wide cross-section of my friends any more, and I do miss having people over for dinner. I'll have to correct this soon. I really do.

Are smoker's on balconies legal there? Fire code prohibits them here.

I use my toaster oven and slow cooker a lot when it's hot.

Lots of people have barbeques on their metal balconies. So a smoker should be in the same category of safety, I should think.

Yeah, but . . .
The barbeques on the balconies, kinda illegal. It's just that everyone else does it so why not ? *thoughts of the BBW owners* and there are so many of them out there, they can't all get tickets !! *thoughts of the law*

If you want to flaunt your anarchist side, go for it. Do like everyone else ? Go right ahead ? Now, here's where I start sounding like a mother. If everyone else jumped off a bridge, would you follow ? :-)

PS let me know where one gets a small smoker, or hibatchi in this city PLEASE !!

Re: Yeah, but . . .
I think you can get a reasonable cast-iron hibatchi at Canadian Tire.

It would be nice to meet you and break bread.

Perhaps when we're in the same city together?

I think I might be about due for having dinner and a visit with you. Your place or mine, whenever you have a spare weekend evening.

That would be splendid! Your company is always welcome.

My next free weekend is the one starting the 15th of July. (!!!!)

I hope you're also available then.

I think I should book you now, or I might have to wait until October or something :)

I've got you down for dinner on the Friday. See you then!

you can definately operate a wok over coals, that's how they did it in the old days! well, over some kind of heat source, like wood.

Yeah, I just have to learn how to do it right. And try to set it up so that the wok doesn't tilt over.

Tricky tricky!

lol, i just pictured you hiring some sleazy chain-smoking woman to hang out on your balcony.... and then i read "so that I can cook outside."

I'm unsure if cigarette smoke would be as nice as hickory or maple. :)

I'm willing to dress up like an old woman and chain smoke on your balcony if it gives me a chance to hang with you!

I suppose I can only say that I'm flattered.
