Re: Tonight's dinner?

Quasi-mexican weekend here...

last night, fish tacos - marinated fish, with pico de gallo, a red and white cabbage slaw with chilis and lime, and guacamole.
Tonight, chicken burritos - marinated chicken with leftover stuff from last night, plus rice, beans and some cheddar cheese.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Baked potatoes with creamed smoked salmon.

(They were meant for twice-baked potatoes, but they smelled so good after the first baking I couldn't resist...)

Pasta with sauteed apples and onions, a squirt of harissa and a sprinkling of Winchester cheese.

Light and filling - a perfect solstice supper.

A dinner run to Tiffins for curry hot enough to sweat off this miserable weather.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Spent a 1/2 hour in the local asian market and made Singapore Chow fun for dinner. Not sure if it is sacrilegious to use fun noodles instead of vermicelli, but I prefer it this way. Here is the recipe I used, but I also added an egg.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Boiled new potatoes and mushrooms stewed with nutmeg, thyme and lemon - a fall dish really, but in this weather it just hits the spot.

Beef rendang (made with spice mix brought from Holland - I cheated, sometimes make it from scratch) and broccoli sauteed with ginger, garlic, sambal olek and ketjap manis (also brought from Holland)... and rice.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Macaroni & (real) cheese with sliced frankfurters, followed by (thanks to my Potter-obsessed son) treacle tart.

...and later a whiskey.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Ok, so I don't want to brag, but I just made the best veggie Tajin I've had so far. A tiny change in recipe and spice mix, and it made quite a difference. The veggies don't really matter, since you can throw in anything you have, but the spice mix was really nice.

I coursely chopped an onion and crushed garlic and fried it for a few mins on a bit of butter and olive oil, then comes the trick. I took a heap of ground: corriander, ginger, cinnamon, a bit of smoked paprika, cardamom thingies, harissa with some mint, and orange zest (a lot), and fried it in the onions/garlic mix till it started being really fragnant (2-3 mins).

Then threw in a can of tomatoes, a can of chick peas with reserved liquid, vegetable stock, chopped up coliflower, colorabi, zuchini and brocoli (about half each), the veggies are up to you.

I stewed it for 15mins, then added generous serving of honey, fresh chopped up spring onions and fresh coriander leaves. Stew some more. Serve with couscous.

Very nice in this almost fall weather stint we are having here at the moment.

It's cheap, since you make a lot of it and you probably have a lot of the spices on hand, should probably be in the dinner under 10fr thread.

ETA - have to credit this little booklet by Australian Women's Weekly, that inspired me to make this, just bought it here this afternoon.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

We had mom-made Ikea ballmeats as my little one calls them and home made pasta...heaven. The home made pasta is easier from course flour, so nice and chunky. Or maybe it was chunky since it was a preschooler art project, hahaha.

The meatballs were ground pork, ground onions, salt, pepper. Simple, slow fried, sizzling.

Re: Tonight's dinner?

Tonight I made my first Som Tam Thai Salad, with crab, dried shrimp, 10 evil little red chilies, green papaya, lime juice and tomato. This was followed/accompanied by Pak Choi with straw mushrooms , mange tout and lashings of garlic, and a glass of Coconut juice. This after receiving fresh instruction from a young Thai maiden. It was nearly very good.
