Re: Tonight's dinner?

Spaghetti with a delicious basil tomato sauce finished off with fresh ricotta, and some heavenly garlic bread.

A SUPER HOT chilli relish on the side of course

Re: Tonight's dinner?

My better half will be rustling up roast lamb with all the trimmings (including mint sauce).

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Fritto misto di mare.

And potato salad (daughter #2 thinks that potatoes covered in mayonnaise are healthier than fried potatoes, somehow I doubt that).

And roast chicken (daughter #2 doesn't like fish)

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Microwaved Spagetti with what ever red sauce I find at the Esso and a few cervelats chopped into.

And I'm actually looking forward to it!

I have some left over tarka dahl in the freezer if you like. Call it an aid package - you shouldn't be eating like that man!

Don't tempt me with wild stories of Dahl!

Mind was changed, won't have time to prepare my 'student spagetti' and make it to the ZSC-Kloten game on time.

Will have to do with food on the go

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Pancakes of course. Off to make the batter. A couple of savoury with lardons/mushrooms/shallot + a bit of cream and crack of pepper - then a couple with lemon and sugar.

Dahl is basically lentils (sometimes chickpeas when it's called chana dahl) stewed as a big soup. The tarka you stir in at the end and it's meant to bring it alive (like a gremolata in Italian stews/meats). It can be anything - sometimes just spices fried in oil but in Sri Lanka they put tomatoes in and all sorts. Amazing!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Pancakes.

For me, speculoos & blueberries and peanut butter and sliced apple.
And the kids, various combinations of nutella, honey, sugar & maple syrup. A complete sugar fest for all.

Yum

Can you post the recipe please! I haven't had good dahl since I left Australia. We have a friend who used to work in a Swarmajii's kitchen and he would sell containers of the most delicious dahl I've ever tasted (and great chai!). Its enough to make me want to fly home for dinner

For tonight however I'll have to put up with a gluten free calzone

almost exactly, although from someone I know, not this site. You don't need bread or rice really, just eat and enjoy!

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Beef stew - with the stock that someone has very lovingly kept on the simmer for me since 7 o'clock this morning. Can't wait!

Perhaps there will be a strawberry cake for dessert if I feel sufficiently recovered after this cup of tea.
