Clam chowder, courtesy of the Martin Hotel, and dark rye bread, courtesy of Schat's Bakery, two of my favorite Carson City foodspots.

That is yet another thing I miss from back east.  There isn't one bakery out here that I know of that makes their own bread.  I miss pumpernickel bread and good old Jewish rye with those delicious crusts.

Is Domini's still in business downtown?  They used to serve mad-stacked deli sandwiches on great bread.

I checked.  Yep!

Thanks, Goose.   I never heard of the place and I've lived out here for almost 30 years.

There's a lot of homeless down that area now.  A lot.  Spokane has a major problem.

The good news is that Dicks ("Buy 'em by the bagful") is still there and going strong!  :)

Yum!

I used leftover tri-tip to whip up some beef bourguignone and served it with steamed carrots on a bed of spaghetti tossed with olive oil and parsley.  Salad and sourdough as sides.

They sell a veal and beef mixture here and it makes a good meatloaf.  I like to put a couple strips of bacon on top of the meatloaf when it is baking.  Gives it a good flavor.

Chopped ham with rice, quinoa, black beans, onion, ginger, and garlic.  Quite tasty!

How was it?  What spices did you put in?  I don't have a garden and know no one that does.   I'd love to make a sauce from scratch.  But I've found a good substitute.  I use a jar of Prego Zucchini and a jar of Bertolli Rustic Cut Marinara and throw in a whole bunch of other stuff including sauteed Italian sausage.  It's delicious.

I'd like to use sausage, but generally use ground beef, as that's what I have on hand.  My mother in law (83yo) still provides us with garlic and canned tomatoes annually (peaches, pears, pickled beets, dill pickles, too!).

Spice-wise, I've always added dried/crushed oregano, basil, thyme, salt, pepper, but a while back I picked up a big bottle of McCormick Bruschetta mix that I throw in, and that works pretty well.  We eat a lot of fresh garlic in our food, usually mincing it and using it as a rub for meat or sauteeing it with whatever we're cooking.

Haven't made a botana (layered tortilla chips, taco meat, refried beans, cheese, salsa, guac, sour cream) in ages, will make tonight.  That and a couple of cold cervezas.
